Today we get some blasts from the past with a Seinfeld reunion and Amy Poehler's return to SNL, and a look towards the future with a video game based on The Bachelor. It's enough to make anyone nostalgic.
The Bachelorette has steadily become more and more excruciatingly painful to watch each and every season. There's so much filler now, and the show is totally irrelevant as the majority of couples usually break up as quickly as they get together. Plus, every episode is "very special" or "shocking" when it really isn't at all. They spoiled Reid's surprise return in the previews the week before. And did anyone actually really think that Jillian would pick Kiptyn when she couldn't shut the hell up about Ed after he came back? It's not just Jillian's fault that this particular season was so terrible -- the entire show needs a major overhaul (and so does The Bachelor, but one thing at a time), and here are some ideas for improving it.
It's a happy day for everyone it seems like. People are getting promoted, there's an up and coming TV show, exciting summer hits have been renewed, and even people who we really don't care about are getting their own reality shows.
It was the very special 100th episode of So You Think You Can Dance on Thursday night, but two people still had to go home. So mixed with the celebration was a tinge of sadness as contemporary dancer Jason Glover and salsa dancer (and frontrunner) Janette Manrara got eliminated. The duo talked to reporters on a conference call about their stints on the show, and the highlights are below.
Yesterday I ranted about how disappointed I was about the Star Wars panel that G4 decided to air on TV as the first ever Comic-Con panel to be broadcast, and griped that maybe some other more deserving panels could have been chosen. Then the nice folks at NBC (who sign my paycheck) decided to put up the Chuck panel on Hulu so I could see the whole thing. Well, mostly. The intro song by Jeffster! was cut (you can watch it here) most likely because of music rights. Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls" probably doesn't come cheap.
