Attention all Accidentally on Purpose fans! I mean, fan! Yes, you! Here you go.
Hey, do you guys like Chuck? Because I hope I'm not wasting your time here, but there's some pick-up news on the subject. You know, just in case you're interested.
The first, very short, season of Sister Wives is over. It did succeed in answering a lot of the questions we had after watching the premiere, though we're still not so sure why these women seem to think Kody is such a catch... or how they're at all able to support themselves. But still, it was an interesting show that had us hooked from the beginning. Here's our look back the moments that stood out the most for us from the last month. Mostly they are things that caused Kody, who is a massive tool, the most amount of pain.
ABC and Marvel recently made a big splash in the news by announcing that they were going to be bringing back one classic Marvel superhero TV series, The Incredible Hulk, and starting an all-new one, Cloak & Dagger. Based on a comic book about two teens who were given an overdose of synthetic drugs that activated their mutant superpowers, the characters Cloak and Dagger have been around since 1982 but have faded in and out of the spotlight since then. And while the new Hulk series has five decades of comics, two feature films and a beloved TV show to draw inspiration from, we're worried that the lesser-known C&D might suffer from their new home on ABC Family. As longtime fans of the characters, here are some tips for what to do and what not to do with them.
And today we learn another valuable lesson about how quality and ratings do not go hand-in-hand.
Yes, there are even more of these Real Housewives creatures now. Luckily, the Beverly Hills ladies do seem different enough from the Orange County ones to not seem completely superfluous, but, you know, all of these women are exactly the same in a lot of ways, no matter where they're from. As I always do, I'm sure I'll get more excited about this installment as the season goes on -- the fighting's not fun until you feel like you know them, and that takes a few episodes -- but for now, let's just go over our brand-new, hideously shallow and pathetically materialistic Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as we know them now.
30 Rock is far from the first modern series to pull off a live episode, but we do hope that it restarts the trend. And while it might be hard for some shows to handle this format, we can think of a bunch from the current season that we'd like to see try. At the very least, most of them would have a good shot at being funnier than Saturday Night Live has been in recent years. Here's our wish list:
New reality shows capitalize on what's in the news and what's on TV right now. In other news, new scripted shows capitalize on what worked 30 years ago. Great idea.
The Donald continues to humiliate celebrities better than they even humiliate themselves. God bless that dandelion-haired man.
More Andy! More Chelsea! More Devlin! More 30 Rock! More reality! More werewolves! More "celebrities"! The downside? Less Smits.
