In the spirit of the upcoming St. Patrick's Day, we got to thinking about some of the characters on television who seem to have all of the luck. In some of these cases, we're baffled by just how these people keep having wonderful things to happen to them. Maybe they have the luck of the Irish, have a leprechaun hidden in their closet or have sold their souls to the Devil... Yes, maybe we're just a touch jealous, too.
Charlie Sheen is not making idle threats, y'all.
The new Real World premiered on MTV last night and, as is befitting the network of RJ Berger and Skins, the emphasis was on sex to the exclusion of almost all else. Clearly, they're hoping to out-do the outrageousness of the series' first Las Vegas go-round, but can any of these crazy kids disgust/fascinate us more than the likes of Trishelle and Steven? The key to the season may rest with how and when these seven strangers unveil their illicit secrets to the rest of their suite mates.
Hey now! Get ready for some awesome casting news
Before CBS officially fired Charlie Sheen this week, there had been some talk that maybe Chuck Lorre could step away from day-to-day production of Two and a Half Men as a way of keeping the peace if Charlie were to come back. We here at TWoP still think the idea of getting rid of Lorre is pretty good, even if Sheen is already gone, and we have some suggestions about who should replace both of them.
In today's headlines a pretty face means more than any talent.
ABC Family's Greek signed off Monday night, and much as I was charmed by this brightly colored drunken look at college fraternity life for the last few years, I was glad that they decided to end it. Frankly, it was getting more than a little bit awkward to keep finding reasons for Cappie not to graduate, or for Ashleigh and Casey to remain tied to their sorority. Not to mention that Rusty, who was supposed to be one of the youngest of the bunch, had a rapidly receding hairline that seems like it is going to render him bald by the end of the year. He was cute and nerdy at the start of the series, but at this point, it would've been hard to reboot the show built around an old-looking guy like him.
Like many of you probably did, over the past couple years I had completely forgotten Aubrey O'Day and Danity Kane ever existed, so imagine my surprise when she popped back up with a reality show on Oxygen about her comeback. Good for her for still existing! Last night's premiere was decent enough entertainment, with one truly upsetting moment and even some genuine pathos there at the end, but in addition to learning that Aubrey's still alive, I learned a few other fascinating tidbits about her in episode one. Here they are, in order of increasing ridiculousness.
Do you have your zombie survival team picked out yet?
