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!

Thanks to The Colonel for joining us in the liveblog last night. We had some technical difficulties (again) and I missed the chance to approve and let in the rest of the crew. One of these days, we’ll figure it out.  The Roundtable marches onward and upward though, so hit the jump for thoughts on last night’s shit fiesta of an episode

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…)

COUNTRY WEEK, Y’ALL!! You’re missing out if you aren’t joining in on the Tuesday Night Idol Liveblog. Phrases are being coined left and right and we will now be referring to Michael Sarver as Fat Dale, Jr. Grand Ol’ Opry week wasn’t as awful as we anticipated and it left most of us pleasantly surprised. Except for one particular performance. Join us after the jump for the weekly meeting of the post-performance Roundtable… (more…)

Tonight we get to witness the atrocities of Grand Ol’ Opry night. Make no mistake, this is probably going to scar you for life and you will immediately regret watching this. I am already regretting writing this. Once again, we’re gonna live-blog this mo-fo and this will most certainly be yet another mistake of the highest caliber. Since we actually remembered it was Idol night before the actual show began airing this time, we’ve got a little preview roundtable awaiting you after the jumpity jump. (more…)

With promises of car crashes and broken relationships dancing in our heads, those of us hunkered down in long underwear and extra furry hats descend upon our televisions to revel in 90210 and tawdry goodness.

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 an episode in which JoJo’s mom Mrs.B took helicopter parenting to a whole new level, each Boy is off to the Virgin Islands with his Momma and his top three girls (well, save for JoJo, since his Momma said no girl was good enough – he only gets two).

This week, NBC’s Promo Guy has hinted Erica will tell of her sordid past, Mrs.B will call it hell, and every mother will tell her son he is making a terrible choice. How will the son’s respond? Learn – after the jump…

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?

It is a train-wreck of a dating show, complete with stereotypes and oddball challenges. Sounds like it is right up my alley!

Join me after the jump for a review of Momma’s Boys, where three single guys – and their mothers – attempt to find them love, all while embarrassing themselves in front of the cameras. (more…)

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.

30 Rock 3.01 – Do Over Thursday, October 30, 2008

Sex & The City-like music accompanies Liz Lemon as she triumphantly strides into the third season of 30 Rock. A man in a limousine accosts her, but her disgust turns to joy as she realizes it’s Jack Donaghy behind the tinted glass. After an awkward greeting, we learn Jack can’t really discuss his egress from the Bush administration, but the important thing is he’s determined to get his old job back. What Not To Wear is still ignoring Liz, but she’s dressed up in anticipation of a visit from an adoption agency screener. Then she makes the fatal mistake of declaring there’s no way she blows this. Famous last words, Lemon.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to my season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome, once more, to Urban HIMYMs.

So here’s the deal:

For the entire year, I’m going to stick with the ten things manner that we had at the end of last year.  Certainly, as a starting point for discussion.  (Warning, this is going to suck relative to my efforts at the start of this…)

Apologies for a lack of entry last week.  I <3 NJ was a fantastic episode, but with Parent-Teacher Conferences, I could not find time to do it.  If you’d like to make notes about it, please feel free to do so in the comments for this episode.

And away we go… (more…)

So here’s the deal:

It’s AP week, so even if I wanted to go more fully into the notions of this episode, I think I am forced to stick to the ten points agenda.  Which is good, it keeps me brief.
