Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Jimmy Webb didn't have young Falcon Heeme in mind, when he wrote "Up, Up and Away."
But it might have been fitting, except for one or two things. Like the fact that Falcon didn't have a "beautiful balloon." And he didn't go up, up and away.
In many respects, Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky declares, he was a pawn in the latest example of how far some people would go to make an ever more bizarre reality series.
Sokolsky places the blame on producers, would be producers and the television industry for attempting to cross the line in ever more spectacular ways.
He traces this trend back to TV's earliest days and wonders what will be coming next and who will be hurt by it.
