Not only was spending the full twenty-two minutes at Dunder Mifflin Scranton a welcome change of pace from the recent over-the-top zany antics of Michael Scott. It gave the Dunder Mifflin denizens a welcome opportunity to shine. Stanley’s tour-de-force performance aside, anyone else curious as to what Phyllis the delinquent teenage vandal immortalized in cement all those years ago? Because you just know she was a wild child!
Even with the new team and the return of Cutthroat Bitch, this TV Addict can’t seem to get excited for HOUSE anymore. Is it just me, or are we watching virtually the same show each and every week? Diagnose, Snarky Comment, Cure, Repeat.
THE BIG BANG THEORY
As a stare blankly at my ridiculously large collection of Entertainment Weekly magazines [quite literally, almost every one], this recovering eBay Addict couldn’t help but
laugh sympathize with Leonard, Sheldon, Wolowitz and Raj’s Time Machine predicament.
It should come as no surprise that television’s most frustratingly uneven series relied on the tired and clichéd “It’s a Wonderful Life” plot contrivance for their very special 150th episode. Talk about your super lack of creativity.
After the train—wreck that was season one of PRIVATE PRACTICE, Addison’s brief return to Seattle Grace was a welcome reminder of what Kate Walsh can do when given great material. Here’s hoping the PRIVATE PRACTICE writers took notes.
MY ROGERS PVR
I think my Rogers PVR [Personal Video Recorder] is developing a mind of its own. Rather than obeying my commands, it failed to record Thursday’s SUPERNATURAL and SCRUBS. Stupid Toaster!
Move aside NIP/TUCK, because after this week’s paparazzi filled installment, the continued adventures of Vampire Mick St. John, complete with uber—cheesy voiceovers and an over-the-top Jason Dohring may officially be this TV Addict’s new guilty pleasure. Bonus points for giving 8 SIMPLE RULES Martin Spanjers an acting gig outside of the occasional Pizza Hut commercial.
