Just caught up with last night’s episode of VERONICA MARS, so much more entertaining than last week’s season premiere. Oddly enough, the best story in the episode was not Veronica’s. I enjoyed the Logan/Wallace ‘B’ story far more. Holy Guest Stars Batman! Rider Strong (BOY MEETS WORLD), Dan Castellaneta (THE SIMPSONS), Keri Lynn Pratt (JACK & BOBBY)! How much fun were they to watch? Finally, can we just get rid of Keith’s story from last year. I have no idea what’s going on with these Fitzpatricks. Let’s move on and see Keith help Veronica solve the mystery of the Hearst Rapist.
30 ROCK premieres tonight on NBC. No doubt thanks to the endless barrage of promos you’re thinking it’s funny. Tina Fey (SNL, MEAN GIRLS), Alec Baldwin and Jane Krakowski (ALLY MCBEAL) What could go wrong? Let me be the first critic to voice the miniority opinion. 30 ROCK was the most disappointing pilot I watched all summer. The show just isn’t funny. Creator Fey just isn’t sure what the show is supposed to be. Is it smart with more of a realistic comedic tone (ie. SPORTS NIGHT, STUDIO 60) or is it a straight up comedy (FRIENDS). With the exception of Alec Baldwin, the pilot is barely funny and not smart enough to be compared to SPORTS NIGHT. Since I love Tina Fey, I’ll definitely give the show a few weeks, but if the first episode is any barometer, don’t get your hopes up.
If you’re looking to be entertained during the commercial breaks for LOST, I’ll be once again filling that painful commercial time with my witty and insightful comments as I LIVE BLOG LOST. This TV addict is part of that small yet loud group who are shipping Henry & Kate (or HATE as I’ve cleverly dubbed them!). By the way, before you flame the site with spam, I’m kidding. I’m a SKATE shipper all the way (Sawyer & Kate for those of you who aren’t addicted to LOST)
