Fall is usually a time of excitement for TV junkies like us, with so many new shows, returning favorites resolving last season's cliffhangers and the promise of a fresh start for stale plotlines. However, this year we're dreading some potential developments, which has put a damper on our enthusiasm. Some of these may not happen, while some are already in the works, but all of them make us more than a little bit wary.
Greg the Bunny Redux. Sookie-Mon: The Game. "When bloodshot eyes are smizing." Dane Cook FTW. But first: Casting, casting, casting!
It's back-to-school time, and we're actually looking forward to it. Not because we wish our children would get out of the house, but because one of the new fall shows we're looking forward to starts tonight, and it's a school-based comedy called Community. Following a slightly evil lawyer who has to re-earn his law degree at a local community college, we meet a half-dozen of his fellow students of varying ages, as well some of the school's bizarre teaching staff. Joel McHale plays the main character, Jeff, and we got to talk to him and series creator Dan Harmon on a conference call as they discussed their experiences on the set. There will be a quiz later.
While I still have mixed feelings about last week's announcement that Ellen DeGeneres was going to be the fourth judge on American Idol, I have no such qualms about Adam Shankman being given a permanent seat next to Mary Murphy on So You Think You Can Dance. None whatsoever. Though I do fear for his eardrums. Maybe I should send him some earplugs as a congratulatory gift? Just to be safe?
So Jordan won. Which was really no surprise to anyone, except maybe Jordan herself. But then again, everything surprised Jordan. You probably could have told her that Julie was a robot and she would have believed it. She won the show purely by dumb luck, which sounds mean, but is true. She claimed that her best strategic move in the game was winning the final HoH, but she won both stages of the competition by chance. She rolled the balls into the right holes better than Natalie, but everyone is a better competitor than Natalie, and then she basically wrote a random number on a chalkboard and won her spot in the final two. I can't even pretend to think that she actually calculated how many votes to evict were cast during the course of the season. She is not a math genius, or any kind of genius.
