Thursday, April 23, 2009: <i>Supernatural</i>

You have to love a show that doesn't take itself seriously. Considering that the self-mocking folks at Supernatural have previously titled episodes "Sex and Violence," "After School Special" and "A Very Supernatural Christmas," it's no surprise that they went with the very meta title "Jump the Shark" for tonight's episode, in which the Winchester brothers meet their new kid brother. I guess when the show's creator and stars are both looking to wrap things up after one more season, there's no harm in pointing out where fans will say the show started going downhill, huh? After all, they already made fun of their writers and their message board posters in the last episode, and mocked the show's entire conceit in the episode before that. Not that I'm complaining. It's my favorite show on TV for that very reason.

Wednesday, March 4, 2009: <i>America’s Next Top Model</i> It's time for yet another cycle of my favorite beautiful-people-getting-dressed-down-by-Tyra-Banks shitshow, America's Next Top Model (ANTM if you're nasty). Sadly there will be no transgender aspiring models this season, which is almost enough to make me lay down an embargo -- give me trannies or give me death! But not quite. This season cycle, to make up for the lack of former dudes, there will be a burn victim, an epileptic (not dog), a chick who used to date Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and a weirdo who claims to be obsessed with hemophila. Which according to my must-watch algorithm, is the equivalent of maybe a quarter of Isis's long, lithe pinky toe.

Thursday, February 26, 2009: <i>Ugly Betty</i> Things have been touch and go for Ugly Betty this season, and for a while -- like when ABC announced the show would be placed on indefinite hiatus in March -- they were downright bleak. But as of a couple weeks ago, the head honchos were assuring UG acolytes that the show would be back for a new season, so don't count out this migraine-inducing fashion circus just yet. Just start watching it through a peep-hole camera like I do! It's much more soothing on the eyeballs.

Sunday, February 22, 2009: The Oscars

It's Ye Olde Oscar Tyme! Which this year will (allegedly) feature more abstemious red carpet looks (borrrrrrrrrrring), the first Aussie host since Paul Hogan shared duties with Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase in '87, the first Aniston-Jolie face-off (and subsequent bitch-face-off) ever, and a bunch of time-suck song-and-dance numbers to fill up the time slot and pad out the announcement of the winners we all already know will get the little gold man. According to the verrrrry accurate prediction market InTrade, that will mean Slumdog for Best Pic, Boyle for Best Director, Rourke for Best Actor, Winslet for Best Actress, Ledger for Best Supporting dude and Penelope Cruz for Best Supporting dudette. The only real surprise will be whether Kung Fu Panda or Wall-E wins for Best Animated thingystuff, so if you're a gambling man (or woman), this might be your first and last chance to get your undies in a bunch over a cartoon.
