MONDO EXTRAS

The 2003-2004 Tubey Awards, Part Five

by The TWoP Staff August 13, 2004
The 2003-2004 Tubey Awards, Part Five Goes to the writers and producers of Alias and, by default, the character of Lauren Reed. We were programmed to hate her. How could you not hate the woman who stole Vaughn away from Sydney? But how Lauren was used and abused throughout the season didn't really help us hate her any less. First she's nice, she's perfect, she's the sweetest thing ever and we're supposed to lurrrrve her. Then she's evil and dark and totally dicking Vaughn over and we're supposed to haaaate her. Then she really loves Vaughn. Then she doesn't. Then she screws Sark and it's not even sexy and it somehow makes us like HIM less. Any damn way they used this character, it just came out wrong. And blaming it on Melissa George and her omni-accent simply won't cut it. We were going to hate her no matter what, regardless of who was in the role, but perhaps if they'd used her properly and given her better stuff to do than, say, whine at her damn husband all the time, we might have hated her a wee bit less. -- Regina

Best Character Played By Someone Who's Not Even There
Spy Mommy. Hey, Lena! Stop making lutefisk for Lasse and GET BACK ON THE DAMN SHOW. -- Regina

Best Proof That You Can Go Broke Underestimating The Intelligence Of The Public
Tru Calling. Not even Eliza Dushku's supple young body and perfect lips could convince viewers to watch a show where the plot twist of one episode revolved around a brain teaser commonly used to challenge the minds of third graders about poisoned ice cubes. -- Shack

Best Proof That You Can Go Insane Underestimating The Intelligence Of Network Executives
Despite ratings that would make a cable network blush in embarrassment, Tru Calling was renewed for a second season. -- Shack

Best Evidence Of The Fickle Minds Of The American Public
When moderately talented belter Jennifer Hudson was ejected over somewhat-less-than-moderately talented oldies crooner John Stevens, controversy erupted among viewers and fans who felt that decision was a travesty and possibly racially motivated. Now, a mere few months after the show is over, John Stevens is getting some positive comments for his performances on the tour, while Jennifer has been mostly ignored. Runner-up: Tamyra Gray, the contestant whose ejection caused a similar reaction way back in the show's first season, returned with an album and songwriting credentials and was added to the tour. Nobody cared. -- Shack
