What Would Guy in My TV Do?

My favorite thing about my TV is that it has opinions. The info button doesn't just tell you the name of the movie and a two-line will inform you that the movie you're inquiring about is a disappointing farce, or that it's dim-witted but entertaining, or that it's an intriguing journey into the human condition that has its dull moments. And it seems to be kind of a fancy pants because it likes pretty much anything that's won an Oscar, but movies with people like Ashton Kutcher and Tara Reid piss it off and it starts throwing around words like tedious and horrible. Sometimes it tries to behave and will just say non-committal things like, "This 1996 adaptation of the best-selling novel XYZ stars Goober McWhoeverton in an epic struggle of good and evil," and in the next breath it's like, wow, that was totally craptastic. I love it.

P.S. Happy 30th, Joe!
P.P.S. Thanks for the help with the sidebar, Darren. And by help I mean, doing it for me.
