The 2003-2004 Tubey Awards, Part Five William Shatner. -- William Shatner

They Took The Red Pill Award
This award goes out to various members of the cast of the social trainwreck Showbiz Mom and Dads who have either emailed, phoned, or worked through their production company to whine about how mean TWoPpers were on the forums. -- Glark

The "We'll Cross That Bridge When We -- Oh, Wait, Was That The Bridge?" Award
Congratulations to the producers of 24. While we can appreciate the audacity of leaping into a season of real-time storytelling without a long-term plan, the result was frequently reminiscent of listening to a four-year-old tell a joke. Plot lines and characters were dropped when they proved unworkable, and the only thing worse was the plot lines and characters that weren't dropped when they proved unworkable. The Mexico excursion, Kyle Singer, Sherry Palmer's harebrained schemes, President Palmer's harebrained accession to them, Jack's vanishing heroin addiction -- all examples of what happens when 24 sets out sans road map. We're all for labyrinthine plots, but how about a little less time spent heading down dead ends next season? -- M. Giant

The Annual "Pissed in Brenda Hampton's Coffee" Award
Graham Jarvis actually passed away in the seventh season, but the way his character was treated this season was nothing short of disgraceful. Even though the writers had an entire summer to think of proper send-off for Annie's father, his death wasn't even acknowledged until this past February, and even then as only a subplot in an episode that also included senior citizens and retarded people afraid of their parents' disapproval of their choice in spouse. And then it got worse: the next episode was all about how happy everyone in town was now that Annie's dad was dead. And the happiest was, of course, Annie. For Jarvis to take this award away from perennial winner Jessica Biel, he must have had to do a little more than just piss in Brenda's coffee. -- Sara M

The "There Must Be Something in the Water" Award
You can usually chalk up the stupidity and myriad other character flaws we see on 7th Heaven to those Camden genes. But this season, two episodes were dedicated to the mentally retarded, and that's not counting Sam and David. If you live in Glenoak, you may want to consider drinking imported bottled water from now on. -- Sara M
