Welcome to the first of hopefully what will become a regular feature on theTVaddict.com. THE TV ADDICT’S WEEK IN REWIND A look back at last week’s good/bad/ugly in the world of television.
BEST EPISODE OF THE WEEK: SUPERNATURAL
Creepy kids in Hollywood are tricky business. For every Haley Joel Osment, there’s an annoying and pretentious Molly Walker [HEROES]. Thankfully, Eric Kripe and Co. know what they’re doing, and SUPERNATURAL’S second episode of the season titled “The Kids Are Alright” proved exactly that — offering up a trifecta of SUPERNATURAL goodness — frights, heart and surprises. Oh, and did we mention, Ruby’s a Demon!
EMOTIONAL IMPACT OF THE WEEK: GREY’S ANATOMY
Episode by episode, Shonda Rhimes is making good on her promise to rehabilitate Seattle Grace’s comatose Doctors. The funeral our favorite residents had for ‘really old guy’ was both touching and funny, which is what GREY’S excels at.
FUNNIEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: 30 ROCK
Between Jenna’s declaration of “Me Like Food” and Will Arnett’s game of one-upmanship with Jack this TV Addict can’t decide. Does an entire twenty-two minutes of 30 ROCK count as a ‘moment’?
LAMEST STORY-LINE OF THE WEEK: HIRO
While HEROES as of late has quite a few to lame stories choose from, the most cringe-worthy is stacking up to be Hiro’s stuck in Feudal Japan. If HEREOS doesn’t start stepping it up soon, this TV Addict’s going to have to start using his only super-power. Changing the channel at lightening speed.
GRATUITOUS PROMOTION OF THE WEEK:GOSSIP GIRL
AS IF the gang from GOSSIP GIRL would all be using Verizon phones to gossip. Everybody knows that the coolest kids in school have iPhones.
WORST NETWORK PROMO: BROTHERS & SISTERS
Because we really thought Justin was dead. Memo to ABC, we’re smarter than your average 5th Grader.
