People are going crazy – or as one may say, “off the rails” – so let’s see if anyone gets stabby. Or plays with a gun and accidentally shoots themselves in the belly, setting into motion the ascent of Brian Austen Green. Dear Lord, let’s hope it is not number two.

This week, Silver goes full bore loopy, and Adrianna realizes she may not be terrible at this kid thing. Plus, Brandon is back… just behind the camera. Tease!

After a long, long time away (including, evidently, two episodes my DVR didn’t get), everyone’s favorite zip code is reopened for business in episode 17, “Life’s a Drag”.

This week, Naomi tries to snake her way into new guy Liam’s life, Silver gets carried away with looooooooove, and Hip Teacher Ryan finds himself in another awkward spot. Or so the previews would lead us to believe. Let’s see, shall we? (more…)

Last week, the return of 90210 had teen pregnancy, theft, illegitimate children who were not actually legitimate children, and the promise of someone passing out in chemistry class, making West Beverly High very similar to rural Iowa. This week, secrets will be revealed and boyfriends get mad when their girlfriends are knocked up by someone else… also similar to rural Iowa. And everywhere else in the world.

After returning to Everyone’s Favorite Zip Code (Copyright, All Rights Reserved by The CW’s Evilly Deceptive Promo Guy) in September, we’ve been away for about a month. A re-return post-holidays should find a new wave of drama, right?

Let’s address this right away:

  • Yes, I am a man.
  • Yes, in the spirit of Mike Gundy, I am 31 years old.
  • Yes, I am straight.
  • Yes, I am addicted to the shows of the WB… er, the CW.

The big new show for the CW this season is 90210, touted as a return to everyone’s favorite zip code. I kept meaning to start this in the fall, but schedule conflicts prevented it. With those cleared, and the show returning on Tuesday, let’s get up to speed.

After a spectacular opening week, the Finalists returned with a resounding thud. With only a few performances that rose to the level of Good amongst several that were somewhere between uninspired and bleargh, does season 4 actually hold the promise we all thought it did? Let’s see after the jump. (more…)

It’s amazing how little time one has to blog when one doesn’t have Internet access at work and when the power goes out at home during the weekend. Luckily, there’s still time for my take on the Top 20 before they’re reduced to the Top 16. (more…)

As was documented earlier, the excruciating torment fun is over on American Idol, and David Cook is your (well, someone’s) Champion.

While the feelings of the DeadOn Round Table were made clear, what are real fans saying? Well, I took a spin around the Innertubes so you don’t have to.

Here we are, season finale time. Lauren recaps the season up to this point in about 30 seconds. Audrina’s looking at lofts with JustinBobby. She talks out the pros and cons of moving, and saying she’s already kind of living by herself in the guest house. Well yeah. Its a separate house. JB asks if she’s told Lauren yet, she looks whistfully out the window and we get the theme song

kitty_bidet.jpgThe end is nigh…for the first Search for the Next Pussycat Doll.  Although, I reckon, the existence of this show might be a sign The End for us is close at hand.  Anyway, I couldn’t bring myself to write about this show every week, but I was informed that we had some activity in the comments section of my first post, so I thought I might provide a recap to the season and the season finale after the jump … (more…)

Gilmore Girls: Disappointing Relationships Thursday, March 8, 2007

I missed last week’s Gilmore Girls recap because…well…I don’t really know why.  I guess I was just lazy.  Just to catch up with what happened last week I’ll give a quick recap.  Although, I must admit I am continually let down by the ability of the writers this season to create interesting stories that get developed.  Nothing seems to happen and each week is a self-contained episode with very little tying it to episodes before or after it.  Only now and then does an event occur that has any meaningful impact on the storyline. Enough kvetching, on to last week and then this week’s recap.

I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to anybody out there I convinced to watch Gilmore Girls last week. I highly doubt there was anybody who decided to watch on my account, but I still need to apologize. Most. Boring. Episode. Ever. (more…)

Gilmore Girls Recap – Commence Mocking…Now Thursday, February 15, 2007

When I first drafted this post I had an eloquent explanation as to why I liked the Gilmore Girls and why I would ever admit it.  Upon further review, I realized it was just a weak attempt to avoid the constant mocking and taunting of others and if I can’t handle the heat I shouldn’t be in the kitchen or some stupid cliché like that then I shouldn’t post it.  So…mock away…take your potshots…that’s what this blog is for—mocking….  I can take anything you dish out because I am a man, “A manny, manny, man” and I have balls the size of watermelons. 

Let me just say I like the show.  I like the writing; I like the little nuggets of pop culture slipped in; and, I can relate to the show but not in a John Mark Karr way.  Just in a child of divorced parents, child of a young mother way.  And, I find Lauren Graham attractive.  Enough about me.  Let us journey on to the recap…
