October 2012 Archives
Apparently June is too sunny for the Twilight crew.
Hey, this week Winston and Jess actually exchanged one whole line of dialogue, and technically Winston had mind sex with her... not exactly what we had in mind when we asked for more interaction between them, but it's something, right? But the rest of "Fluffer" fell flat, mostly because of Winston, and much as it pains us to admit it, Schmidt. And we can't help but wonder if the Romney camp paid for some product placement, what with all the talk about how he's a great dad with great hair. Here's what worked, and what didn't this week:
I was really impressed with last night's "The Talk." The episode wasn't great, but it did cover the N-word, our society's treatment of veterans, autism, bullying, breast cancer, adoption and the big Team Peeta vs. Team Gale Hunger Games divide -- not bad for a 40-odd-minute primetime family drama. I think Parenthood is laying it on a little too thick so far this season (with not nearly enough Camille or Amber, might I add), but given the fact that the episode ended with Adam making Kristina move up her surgery date, I don't have that much to complain about right now, so let's get to the nitty-gritty.
Giancarlo Esposito now has a full season to improve his equestrian skills.
The show may be called New Girl, but for us, it's all about the Schmidt.
There are four major laws of the 2 Broke Girls universe, as seen last night in "And the Pearl Necklace":
1. The hardest-hitting punch lines should either be about notoriously hated celebrities or taboo sex acts.
2. If something is pink, involves cosmetology, musicals or is not traditionally "masculine," it is gay.
3. Other female characters are only around to make Caroline and Max look cooler, for Sophie to compete with or for Oleg to hit on.
4. When in doubt, make a hipster joke.
In case there was anyone just counting down the days until Emily Owens, M.D. premiered...
When I first watched the pilot for this show early in the summer, I thought it was annoying, but that it might be fine for Friday night. But on second glance over the weekend, I just can't condone watching more of this show. There's just so much grating and terrible about it that even the promise of more of Donna Murphy's insanely arched eyebrows can't keep me tuning in. This show is like the anti-Good Wife.
Oh, Gossip Girl -- how we will miss all of your drama, fabulous clothing (especially those completely decorative velvet headbands that every fangirl just had to purchase), and ridiculous portrayals of human beings. Before the final season kicks off October 8, here's what where we'd like to think each character will be years down the road:
