Well, that happened, didn’t it? I’d also like to echo the comments of the blogosphere when I say that the two judges at once thing sucks. Hire a director who can reign the show in, ok? And stop pissing off my fellow “Fringe” fans – that’s a show we should have been recapping since the start – and no more running late! Speaking of running late, the Roundtable isn’t! We’re up and live in plenty of time yet again. So jump with us for the Tarantino night recappage (more…)

YAY! I managed to get a Roundtable up this week afterall! You have no idea the amount of amazing one-liners and zingers that just sit in my inbox when I lack the ability to get one of these things up in time. If you watched last night’s performance show, then you probably have an idea of where we’re going with this. Especially if you tuned in for the liveblog.  The steaming cowpie awaits you… (more…)

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

We’ve survived yet another Motown week on Idol, and once again, nobody was tragically murdered while in the D. Heartbreaking, I know. As always, your Roundtable is here to discuss the events of last night with the usual detailed run-down on what transpired.

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…)

Hello, all. I know that you’ve missed the roundtable with all of your hearts and souls, haven’t you? Did you join us for the impromptu live-blog last night? Of course not! Because we did it on a whim with no promotion! HUZZAH! Oh the quips and platitudes that you missed out on! Lucky for you, we’re back with the American Idol Roundtable this year and, like Idol itself, we’ve made some changes to the panel. We’d like to welcome long-time commenter and recent recapper DougOLis to the fold. HI DOUG! So, if you’re a masochist that likes things that go on too long (and since you watch Idol, you likely are) join us after the jump for the breakdown of the Top 13 Performance Show. (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.

It’s all over but the crocodile tears and the tween screaming. Last night left zero doubt as to whom it was that the judges wanted to win the show, and after tonight’s two hour self-congratulatory, anti-climactic, masturbatory extravaganza, we will be free from the shackles of Idol until next January. So, join us won’t you, for one last trip around the roundtable… (more…)

Still, we blog onwards. Follow the jump for your weekly performance recap from the ususal crew… (more…)

Hey, that wasn’t too bad. Or maybe it was. Really, it all depends on who you ask. I don’t think there was a performance that left me thinking, “Hey! I’ll download that later!” , but there were certainly performances that made me want to throw things at the screen. All in all, it was a typical Idol night. Just ask the panel, whose recaps await you…..AFTER THE JUMP (more…)
