Hey, I have a great idea! So how about we take the boringest character? From the boringest reality show? And make a show about her? It's sure to be a non-stop thrill ride, not to mention a ratings bonanza!
Last night my dorky dreams came true when Cory Matthews guest starred on Chuck. Little Ben Savage has grown up to be a slightly taller version of his Boy Meets World character (I don't know why I write about that show so much; I just can't help myself), but in this case way smarter. He's a nerd who married the most popular cheerleader in school (who is played by Nicole Richie, who isn't as terrible as one might think she would be as an actress, especially when she just has to play bitchy) and has used his big brain to develop some sort of weapon. I'm just so happy to see him have a job, and the fact that they made him hero worship Chuck, rather, Special Agent Charles Carmichael, was just too cute to stand. I want him on the show all the time! He could be their Marshall and make them awesome spy gear. That's exactly what this show has been missing.
Dexter kills people, but does that make him a bad guy? Find out other TV characters who have sociopathic tendencies that make Dexter look almost charming.
We really want Heroes to get better. Seriously. Here's our suggestions for how it can stop sucking.
We highlight (or lowlight) the ten slimiest guys on reality TV. There are some real douchebags out there.
On a related note, Terence on The Amazing Race might be a serial killer. Which could qualify him for several of our lists this week.
HRG (aka Jack Coleman) blogs about filming and singing with Zachary Quinto in Griffith Park, and the challenges of working with a swirling vortex.
There are a surprising amount of similarities between Gilmore Girls and Gossip Girl. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Ron Perlman, that guy who is Hellboy, he used to dress up in another heavily made up costume. And it was wonderful.
I know there are people out there who adore Boston Legal and while I'm not a fan, I don't hate it. I just really can't watch it regularly. It's a perfectly fine show, but I've had my fill of most legal dramas (well, unless they are f'ed up like Damages). Which is why I'm completely unenthusiastic about the news that David E. Kelley is making yet another legal series for next season on NBC, with the hopes that it could take the spot of the long-lingering and finally being put out to pasture ER.
In today's installment of why I want to move to the UK, they're now working on a reality show where contestants have to live with gorillas. And it isn't like Survivor: Gabon where you see the animals but have no interaction with them and are not even close to them. Eight people get selected and are sent to Uganda to live in the jungle and behave like apes. They've got to eat like them, sleep like them and travel like them. Honestly, I'm surprised no one has done this before. Those wacky Brits, they've got the foresight and they've found a way to combine my love of shows like Meerkat Manor and Planet Earth with my addiction to shows like Big Brother and Real World. It's kind of genius in a way. Just like The Jungle Book, but without Baloo and the catchy tunes.
