TheTVaddict.com Week in Rewind

FUNNIEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: BECKI NEWTON
This week’s “booty bump” goes to UGLY BETTY actress Becki Newton. Newton’s fearless acting and comic timing has transformed Amanda Tanning from generic Office Mean Girl into one of the funniest females on television. Our only question — is there anything Newton won’t do for a laugh? [See this week’s laugh-out-loud moment below]

DEJA VU MOMENT OF THE WEEK: ALAN DALE
First Caleb Nicol kicks the bucket on THE OC. Now things aren’t looking so good for BETTY’s Bradford Meade. If we were Alan Dale, we’d be seriously concerned about that old adage life imitating art.

COOLEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: DAVID ANDERS
Call us cluless, but this TV Addict didn’t make the Kensei/Adam connection until David Anders’ smiling mug appeared on screen during last week’s final moments of HEROES. Will the jaw-dropping reveal make up for one helluva lackluster start to season two? Here’s hoping. But if ALIAS taught us anything, it’s that bad-ass David Anders will undoubtedly be more exciting that stuck-in-Japan David Anders.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: QUARTERLIFE
Today, Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick — the masterminds behind MY SO-CALLED LIFE bring you a new internet series called QUARTERLIFE. Is this the future of television? Check it out by clicking here and let us know.

    When Hiro left Japan, I was sad (even if the story was lackluster). David Anders was the only bright spot of this season of Heroes for me.

    Then to discover his storyline wasn’t over? I won’t lie. There might have been some flailage.

    I watched quarterlife…and I liked it. Will definitely watch again. Let’s see how this whole new internet series thing is gonna work out.

    I will admit that the reveal of Kensei as Adam was great on this week’s Heroes but even better was Kring’s admission that the season has not been what it should have so far. For a showrunner to stand up and admit … yeah, it sucked, is kind of inspiring.

    Even better, Carleton Cuse’s picket sign. I also have to admit that I’m learning about a whole different side of the television industry thanks to this strike. It’s actually really fascinating.

    I actually liked quarterlife, surprisingly. Though, it doesnt hurt that Scott Michael Foster from “Greek” is in it.

    Did anyone see Dexter tonight?! Holy crap, what a great episode.

  • Amy

    What’s really funny about Alan Dale’s latest episode is that what most Australians and Brits know him best for is his role as jim Robinson on Neighbours, back before he became a big Hollywood TV star. What was his fate on that show? Dying of a heart attack of course!

    I figured out that David Anders would be Adam about half way through last week’s episode, and I’m so happy I was right. This role is so much better suited to David than being stuck in a pointless story in ancient Japan.

  • CC: Sadly I was not home but rest assured I’ll be watching DEXTER tonight.

    Amy, thanks for the Australian perspective. One day I’ll get to visit!
