Given how dull Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette has been (aside from the drama with Kalon), rumors that Ali Fedotowsky's ex Roberto Martinez may be in the running to be the next Bachelor don't instill us with a lot of hope. He's a nice guy, but dull as dirt. So now that Emily has ditched most of her suitors and found one she can tolerate (for now), we took a look back at her men (and a few from seasons before) to find a better choice of leading man. And yes, some of them may currently have girlfriends, but given the average life expectancy of a Bachelor relationship, we don't foresee that being a problem.
The L.A. Complex is a Canadian export that is airing on the U.S. on The CW. It's in keeping with the network brand and an oddly suitable pairing for its increasingly ridiculous 90210 series. Particularly since this new (at least to Americans) show is essentially an alternate version of the Melrose Place update that was cancelled by The CW a couple of years ago. And while L.A. Complex isn't at all what you'd call a good show or remotely original, it's more watchable than MP 2.0, though maybe only slightly. It doesn't help that Complex starts off with the most annoying song of all time, making us feel like we're being forced to sit inside an MRI machine, though once you get past that, there's plenty of entertainingly mindless fluff to enjoy. Here's how the two series compare:
Our gut reaction to this new Idol rule where the judges get to save one person a season from certain elimination was "Hell No!" It takes away the whole premise of this being a contest that America gets to have a say, since ostensibly America is the one that is going to be buying the albums of the winner at some point down the line. But then we got to reflecting and thinking about how sometimes, America is just stupid and succumbs to the whole thing as one giant popularity contest keeping less talented people (Sanjaya) while others with actual singing chops get sent home. Or the pity vote (and don't even pretend like that wasn't why Anoop got saved this week) where America feels bad for someone because the judges reamed them out and voted. Or because America is just a bunch of lazy asses and didn't vote because their person was safe. Basically, the American Idol watching/voting public kind of sucks, and if once in a while the judges who have a knowledge of what might actually sell in the world (by which I mean Simon and maybe Kara), get a chance to override their hastily made choices, it might not be an entirely bad thing.
