I find today's TWoP News to be very... erotic. Too early to say "sexiest TWoP News ever"? Probably, right?
While we're constantly grateful for our friends and family and jobs and health and all that jazz, we're really thankful for the gift of television and DVRs and for Grey's Anatomy episodes without Katherine Heigl. So instead of focusing on the negative, we'd like to spend this very special episode of TWoP 10 celebrating all of the good that has come to the airwaves this fall.
Yes, I realize how ridiculous that headline sounds. Yes, I am too old to be watching Real World/Road Rules Challenge. Yes, I stopped watching The Real World years ago and only have the vaguest idea who half of the contestants are. Yes, the Challenge has its flaws -- way too many off-challenge physical altercations, too many drunken hook-ups and a really boring host. But still, I think other (aging) reality shows could actually learn a lot from this series.
Casting, casting, casting! Where a woman is a woman and a man is an Elvis impersonator! Where Harry Potter gets animated, and Tim Gunn gets even more legendary! Where a crook becomes a cop, and Ethan Embry is still alive, apparently!
I was very excited when it was announced that Heather Locklear was returning to her Melrose Place roots as the bitch-in-heels Amanda Woodward. This new series, while oddly watchable, needed a jolt of something to really get it going. Since she'd saved the previous incarnation from dullness/cancellation, it seemed fitting that she'd boost this version as well. But now that we've actually seen her first episode, I'm not sure her appearance is helping matters much.
This week, you have a choice between hilarious comedies and gripping dramas, family fare and adult material, and original Star Trek and Next Generation. One might say that this week's offerings run the gamut.
