The recent "let's visit Yale so we can all go there together when we graduate" trip on Gossip Girl got the old wheels a-turning in my head, and I was like, "Just like how Rory and Paris both ended up at Yale back in the day!" So very convenient that two headstrong girls who have ideas about where they want to go and the ability to get into any number of Ivy League schools wind up together, and as roommates. Same goes for Serena and Blair, and the rest of the gang, all of whom could use their prep school backgrounds to have their pick of the Ivys, and who all decide to check out Yale together. It's just very TV-friendly, and an easy way to keep the cast together. And while Blair and Serena's fights will likely be over boys and not who is going to be editor-in-chief of the school paper, it made me realize the amount of other similarities this show has to my poor beloved departed Gilmore Girls.
Battlestar Galactica is coming back for its final (sniff, sniff) season on Jan. 16th. And while I'm trying to ignore the fact that it is the final season, I'm excited that now that there's a date, I can start planning my BSG party (which all two of my friends will come to.) I'll have just recuperated from my Golden Globes hangover, and be all set to find out what the frak happened after the humans and Cylons landed on Earth. I can't wait, even though it is months away still.
Here's the thing. This updated version of the zip code obsessed series? It's not good. I only keep watching on the off chance that there will be more cameos from Shannen Doherty and for my weekly glimpse of the amazing Gangy in action. But now. Now they've gone too far. They are taking my Jessica Walter away from me. (Not that they give me nearly enough of her to begin with.) Ausiello broke my spirit by informing the world that Walter's contract hasn't been picked up for the second half of the season, and the wonderful Lucille Bluth/Tabitha will only be around on a recurring basis.
I'm sure that Prince Charles is a busy guy. Doing something. Not entirely sure exactly what since I've never really understood the whole modern royal thing. Like they don't rule the country, they are just basically figureheads, right? But he's got too much on his plate to stop by Doctor Who for a cameo appearance. What could be a better way to spread national identity and pride (someone spent too much time on royal.gov) than appearing on an episode of a fantastically fun and wild time traveling sci-fi series? Appeal to the geeks of the world. Show them you've got a sense of humor. He's probably afraid they would make him play an alien or something (leaders on that show don't tend to fare too well). Is there an alien species that has good hearing? That could explain those ears. But the Prince declined. Who EP Russell T. Davies responded by jokingly (I think) calling him "a miserable swine."
