Last night’s phenomenal return of Kate Walsh to GREY’S ANATOMY was the best advertisement PRIVATE PRACTICE could have ever hoped for. Not only did Addison light the spark for the inevitable Meredith McDreamy reconciliation, not to mention get the ball rolling on Callie hooking up with Hahn, she reminded viewers of how good PRIVATE PRACTICE could be. Assuming creator Shonda Rhimes looks back at last night’s episode, remembers what a powerful force she has in Kate Walsh and doesn’t squander another season of PRIVATE PRACTICE by turning Addison into an obnoxious and insecure teenager. [Here’s hoping.]
After the remarkable season they’ve given us, this TV Addict is not about to seriously take LOSTerminds Damon Lindeloff and Carlton Cuse to task for last night’s underwhelming installment of LOST. But in TV terms, the Jack—centric adventure was clearly the classic “bottle” show. An episode meant to conserve funds for what will most likely be some very expensive episodes leading up to the super-sized season finale. Which I’m completely cool with, as long as fans start seeing dividends. And by dividends, I mean ANSWERS! You know, to little questions like, where the frak did Claire go? What’s the deal with Jack’s dad? And what favor is Kate doing for Sawyer? Yes Mr. Lindeloff and Cuse, it’s about time LOST started paying fans off for the four years we’ve invested into this time-sucking, maddeningly addictive show. [That we love. Really, keep up the great work!]
Betty is a lot of things. Bold, beautiful but boring? Well, unfortunately, that’s exactly what I felt while watching last night’s episode. In fact, you know it’s a bad sign when the fourteen minute Official UGLY BETTY Podcast featuring stars Becki Newton and Michael Urie is more entertaining than the entire episode. So let’s cut to it. Free of charge. How to fix BETTY in three easy steps. 1. More Suarez Family — they’re not only the heart of the show, but Ana Ortiz’s Hilda is one of the most underrated actresses on television. 2. Less scheming Wilhelmina Slater — like the Fey Summers mystery in season one, the whole baby arc is falling flat. It’s time to bring Wilhelmina back to Mode. I miss her Betty barbs. 3. Reunite Marc and Amanda — theTVaddict.com didn’t call them the new Jack & Karen because they are boring.
