Tonight’s TV Addictions: May 1, 2009

DOLLHOUSE (9PM FOX, Global in Canada)
Although word on the street internet is that tonight’s guest appearance by FIREFLY’s Alan Tudyk as the mysterious designer of the Dollhouse coinciding with the big ‘Alpha’ reveal is no coincidence, we’re going to go out on a limb and say, “Yes, in fact, it is.” Why? Because everybody knows that Agent Paul Ballard would make for a far-cooler Alpha. Plus, that twist would have the added benefit of finally giving the woefully-underused Tamoh Penikett something interesting to do.

Paging Child Protective Services Line 1. A family on tonight’s WIFE SWAP does not allow their kids to watch TV or go online. Seriously, what’s up with that?

FLASHPOINT (9PM FOX, Global in Canada)
When a student brings a gun to school to carry out revenge against some bullies who pushed him too far, this TV Addict is left asking: When will kids learn that violence is never the answer? Especially when DEGRASSI has so clearly taught us that revenge is best served via an anonymous group on Facebook. Just ask Holly J.

Who needs KINGS when we’ve got Keith Morrison examining the death of a 24-year-old surfer for two hours.*

PARTY DOWN (10:30PM Starz)
Henry and Roman aren’t pleased when Casey befriends a well-known sports personality at a corporate-retreat event. While this TV Addict isn’t pleased that SuperChannel (in Canada) expects us to shell out another 15.99 a month to get PARTY DOWN. I mean have they seen our cable bill?

    You should be writting for Dollhouse. I love your idea.

  • theTVaddict

    Although the compliment is greatly appreciated, I can’t take credit for the idea as it’s just something floating around those crazy internets!

  • luke

    Oh really? I haven’t been paying attention to anything related to Dollhouse because I stopped watching. However, if that rumor is true then I’ll definitely start watching again.

  • Kristen

    SPOILER ALERT… sorta.

    I actually thought Paul could be Alpha without seeing it on the internet. I really thought I’d be right! Darn! That would’ve been so much more interesting!

  • Denice

    if Tamoh Penikett were alpha it would limit his run on the show to only one arc, since the big bad, which is what alpha is, generally gets killed.
