Due to impending hiatus, the WGA strike, shows that are too horrible to watch and several season finales, I have come to the shocking conclusion that my show count of 26 has been reduced to a mere 10! If only you could see the look on my face right now…
As a result of Hollywood failing us, I’ve decided to change things up a bit. Instead of doing the usual ‘Best & Worst’, today I give you just the one best and one worst of the week. This writer’s strike needs to be over. Very soon.
This week’s best: MOONLIGHT
I have to admit that I couldn’t get on board the Mick/Beth ship at first, but I think this show grows as time progresses, as does their relationship. If given a fair chance, MOONLIGHT could become one of those rare cult hits like BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL. Its two leads are acting better with each episode, and they’ve built up more and more chemistry between their characters. They have now stumbled upon their first major obstacle, the ex-wife. I love it that Mick is flawed, that he has a weakness for Coraline and that he couldn’t resist her. The final scene just complicated everything a whole lot more, and I for one can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next week! If you’re not watching MOONLIGHT already, I strongly urge you to do so. What with this strike we’ve been suffering through we need to expand our horizons anyway!

This week’s worst: GREY’S ANATOMY
It’s time for this season’s big event. There was the bomb, there was the ferry arc and now an ambulance crashed and Seth Green’s got an exposed corroded artery. An artery that happened to explode at the end of the episode to create a shock-effect. Who didn’t see that coming from miles and miles away? Does anyone even care about the Alex/Lexi/ Large-Forehead-Girl love triangle? The only love triangle we ever cared about was Allison/Derek/Meredith. But that all happened back when Grey’s Anatomy was still awesome, these days they’re just trying every romance hoping that one of them will feel right to the viewers. The storyline that interested me the most was that of the ‘Nazi Gut’, as Dr. Bailey put it. Then again, her storylines are always the most interesting ones. Here’s to hoping part two of this unfitting, supposedly big event will be at least a little better.
