Writing Wrongs

Writing Wrongs - John gets to baby-sit Theo this week, which means that all the sweetness and treacle you ever wanted from a show like NYPD Blue in is full effect. Sip even goes on a date! With a girl! And oh yeah, two people die, one of them a teenage girl. It's a tender episode, except for the grisly rapes and murders. Awww!

Fools Russian

Fools Russian - This Chinese-speaking episode is like that stereotype about eating Chinese: after watching you'll be hungry an hour later. Like, you'll be hungry for that hour of your life back.

Medavoy wants some short people to live

Family Ties - Yes, Medavoy does a little police work and a lot of "comic" "relief" this week, as he works a hotel murder and reveals some of his kinks. Di dumps Ricky. There's a plot too -- a B-plot, even -- but no one really cares.

New cast member! Her ass is no stranger to the small screen.

Franco, My Dear, I Don't Give A Damn - The new ADA is salty, man! She yelled at Sip! And, she was on Baywatch! This should be good. And a cop was shot. That was bad.

Blue is back, now with 75% more ass!

Daveless In New York - Yes, season eight kicks off with a whoosh as Denby oozes all over Di and Danny's bare ass gets as much screen time as Medavoy. And Sip? Suffers. For a change.

Saddle up and Ride 'em Out

Bats Off To Larry/The Last Round Up - Yup, Season Seven is over. Done. Finished. Kirky leaves, I think. Ricky hugs Sip. Di doesn't drink. The most important thing that happened is that Baldwin dumps Nicole! Reason enough to watch next year and pray for an ass-over.

Coffee, tea or me?

Lucky Luciano

Lucky Luciano - Baldwin meets Nicole, the determined hussy -- I mean reporter -- staking out Pete McGreeney's house. Later, she clumsily attempts to seduce him, saying, "Would it be easier to get you into bed if I told you I was a sister?" You mean, lie? Sure, tell him you're gorgeous and talented too, maybe that'll work.

Roll Out The Barrel

Roll Out The Barrel - Fancy sells not-Amway products and then decides not to sell the not-Amway products. Sip thinks he's just not selling to HIM, because if there's one truism on Blue, it's that it's all about Sip, all the time.

Stressed For Success

Stressed For Success - Ricky gets all bent out of shape when JB disappears, and Mary is annoyed. When he gets annoyed at her, she flips him the bird. That's mature. Ricky cries to Di over JB's death, repeating the now-classic phrase, "I don't know how to live!" Di says she left her manual at home. Sip sees Andy Jr. in a coffee shop, but is it really him?

Sleep Over

Sleep Over - The funky keyboards start, and we arrive at a fancy apartment with lamps the size of Barbie Dream Houses. They're almost as pretty, too. Sip and Ricky cruise in and get the lowdown from the uniforms: "Home invasion." It seems the husband was kidnapped and, later, three black men used his keys to get in and locked his old lady in a closet.

The Irvin Files

The Irvin Files - JB rats his fellow skels out to further his singing career (Ricky says he sings doo-wop like Dion), but goes back on heroin for whatever reason and gets tossed on his ear by Ricky. "Beat it," he says. I say, that's a Michael Jackson song, not Dion.

Welcome To New York

Welcome To New York - The daughter is red-haired with very fair eyebrows, and the mom looks like Sissy Spacek. The dad seems hardy enough, but the whole family lacks the necessary grit it takes to live in New York. You can tell just by looking at them. The dad speaks: "Something terrible happened to our daughter. Anya. She was attacked."

Little Abner

Little Abner - Right off the bat, we see a dead body lying on the floor in a bar. It seems like a cool bar, though. I'd go on nights when dead bodies aren't there. Sip cruises in and says, "I'll see if they've got Jerry Vale on the jukebox." Whoa. I'VE never even heard of Jerry Vale!
