Today’s TV Addict Top 5: Things We Loved About TV This Week!

Where art thou GILMORE GIRLS fans? Seriously, we know it’s been a while since the show went off the air, but all the same we can’t help but feel slightly disappointed that nobody has bothered to bring up the completely bizarro albeit totally awesome crossover event on this week’s episode of PARENTHOOD. Are we really he only ones who connected the hilarity that was Lorelai’s (Lauren Graham) son Drew (Miles Heizer) putting the moves on Luke’s (Scott Patterson) daughter Holly (Vanessa Marano) For shame!

Just when you thought COUGAR TOWN couldn’t get any funnier, comes the recent addition of the unexpected tags to their show’s opening credits in a nod to the split opinion surrounding COUGAR TOWN’s somewhat controversial title. And while we have absolutely no idea how long the writer’s intend to keep this up for, we figure, if THE SIMPSONS can come up with 22 seasons (and counting) worth of couch gags, Bill Lawrence, Kevin Biegel et al should at the very least have five or six seasons in ’em!

When the word “unexpected” is part of the title, twists and turns should probably be, well, anything but. Which is why it’s so curious that we’re still reeling over the unexpected last minute developments in Tuesday’s fantastic episode. Suffice to say, the only thing crazier than discovering that Lux was on her way to being adopted by a presumably fantastic foster mom, will be if the CW doesn’t give this little watched gem a chance.

The only downside of Tuesday’s poignant and emotional episode that saw our favorite McKinley High Glee Club deal with spirituality in the face of Burt Hummel’s coma and the delectably edible “Grilled Cheesus” via song was that it cost us 9.03 on iTunes! Oh, and while we’re on the subject of Burt Hummel, no doubt wanting to make sure he holds onto the best job he ever had, his portrayer Mike O’Malley took a moment to clarify to People Magazine the following: He’s alive!!! “There’s been some conversation about whether or not at the end of that episode, I did indeed move my finger,” O’Malley says. “I did move my finger. But it doesn’t necessarily mean – Okay, I’ll put it this way – I’m not dead at the end of last week’s episode.” He won’t elaborate on what viewers can expect next week, but says, “I doubt very much that there’s going to be a ghost character.”

Full disclosure: Following a disastrous third season, and a ridiculously crowded Monday night viewing schedule, GOSSIP GIRL was thisclose to be dropped as a “Season’s Pass” on our DVR this Fall. That said, serious credit must go to co-creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, who in a span of a mere four episodes has turned this series into one of our week’s most anticipated guilty pleasure thanks in no small part to little exchanges like these:

Blair: “How can I still love you after what you did?”
Chuck: “So you did it just to hurt me. Eva made me into someone I was proud to be. You just brought back my worst self. This means war, Blair.”
Blair: “Chuck–”
Chuck: “Me versus you. No limits.”

    Oh, I saw April Nardini. And promptly ignored her, like I wish the Gilmore Girls writers had done sooner.

  • Should we really be blaming the actress for poor decisions on by the writing staff? 🙂

  • Sarahmfallon

    I totally noticed “April”! I wish Rory would make an appearance too 🙂

    Gossip Girl will have to do MUCH better than that little exchange. The show, like OTH, can barely keep my interest. Nothing happens. That’s a real problem….when you’re a prime time soap opera. REAL problem.

  • Thank Goodness… NO Ghost Characters On Glee PLEASE.

  • Alea

    Yes, it made for a sweet Parenthood episode! She’s grown up!

    That exchange on Gossip Girl made me die a little on the inside.
