Most baffling show on television: So TWO AND A HALF MEN has filmed 100 episodes, is constantly nominated for awards and has devoted viewers who swear it’s the best thing since Skinemax. Seriously?
They cancelled EVERWOOD and now VERONICA MARS for this: Sadly, the list gets longer every year. CROWNED, LIFE IS WILD, REAPER. Yup, still bitter.
Why God invented the PVR: Thursday nights. UGLY BETTY, GREY’S ANATOMY, SUPERNATURAL, SMALLVILLE, 30 ROCK, THE OFFICE, SCRUBS. Thanks to TiVo and its imitators, we can make the good times last well into Friday night.
Why God invented the PVR, Part II: ACCORDING TO JIM… heheheh… just a little holiday humor from your slightly-drunk-on-egg-not TV Addict. Hic-cup.
Most anticipated showdown of 2008: Sarah Connor vs. Killer Terminator Robots.
Second most anticipated showdown of 2008: The ladies of CASHMERE MAFIA vs. those residing in the LIPSTICK JUNGLE. Our money’s on the mob.
One showdown we’re not looking forward to: WGA vs. AMPTP, Month 7.
Best reason to forgive the guy who created TWO AND A HALF MEN: Turns out he also co-created THE BIG BANG THEORY.
Best use of a twin: Mary Kate Olsen on WEEDS.
Worst Use of a twin: Maya on HEROES.
Hardest working cast who are no longer working together: Sure, ALIAS may be history, but a whole lot of the spy drama’s stars are still on our screens every week. There’s nasty Arvin Sloane as Nora’s nice sibling on BROTHERS & SISTERS, playing uncle to Tommy (aka ALIAS’ Balthazar Getty), while Vaughn was, until recently, doing time on BIG SHOTS and Sydney’s dad showed up on UGLY BETTY (Soon to be starring in the ABC Greg Berlanti Drama ELI STONE.) Marshall showed up on MOONLIGHT (and we even very nearly considered possibly tuning in to see him on OCTOBER ROAD until remembering, oh, yeah, it’s that crappy show we hate).
Proving looks aren’t everything: BIG SHOTS
But they don’t hurt: SUPERNATURAL
