<i>Parenthood</i>: This Week’s Chuckle, Cry and Cringe

During this winter break, I visited family and found myself not mentioning Parenthood when people asked for TV recommendations -- and not because I don't clearly love this show, but because I realized the individuals asking me have painfully lived through things we've watch the Bravermans endure, and it seems in very poor taste to tell my future mother-in-law whose own mother died of cancer not too long ago to tune in to Kristina fighting the battle. It begs the question: Is Parenthood a show for the privileged voyeur? Aside from the whole TV-as-escapism factor, I think there's an argument there with this show in particular. Then again, one of the reasons people love Parenthood as much as they do is because they've gone through some of the same emotions are the Bravermans, which can make our own lives feel less lonely, our issues less taboo and stigmatized and our problems more manageable (I see this a lot from fans in particular of Max's Asperger's, which, of course, makes sense). I've also had friends tell me that they can't stand Parenthood because they don't want to, say, watch Crosby and Jasmine sync their calendars when that's what they literally spent the week fighting with their spouse about. Can't win 'em all.

TWoP 10: Best Apartments on TV

The upcoming Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 is built upon the premise that people would deal with a crappy bitch of a roommate in order to live in a really great place. And you know what? We know the feeling. For the privilege of living in the following current and classic TV rental units, we'd pretty much cut off our right arms, or at least put up with someone who leaves wet towels all over the place or forgets to take out the trash.

Beware! Gossip Girl Will Impregnate Your Teen

Beware! <i>Gossip Girl</i> Will Impregnate Your Teen People just loooooove making connections between TV and human behavior, don't they? (Full disclosure, I eat this shiz up.) Between the political preferences that your TiVo allegedly reveal and the fact that Law & Order makes you fat, it seems turning on your tube is a fraught endeavor these days. 'Course this is nothing new, but it sure seems like the conspiracy theorists that propagate these myths are coming out of the woodwork of late to make us afraid to tune in to our favorite shows. Maybe they're just feeling left out cuz they can't afford to upgrade to digital in February? Who the hell knows.

TWoP 10 Most Annoying TV Characters

TWoP 10 Most Annoying TV Characters Evangeline Lilly had the nerve recently to ask for more money per episode on her Lost contract, even though she makes more than anyone else on the show (except Matthew Fox) and even though her character Kate is by far the most irritating character on that show by a landslide. This prompted me to think back over my years of TV-watching to compile the list of most unduly annoying characters to ever exist on the small screen.
