Much as it pains me to admit this, I'm disappointed with the Season 2 set for Ugly Betty. I love this show. I think it is so smart and clever, and while Season 2 lacked some of the charm of the premiere season, it still had some stellar episodes. Those are all on here. But there's not a hell of a lot else.
Well, I guess this conceivably paves the way for Gio.... or not. Christopher Gorham, aka hottie geek accountant Henry, is heading off to Harper's Island (the CBS midseason show) and won't be back on Betty this year. OK, I can understand that. I mean, Henry's got a baby and lives halfway across the country, that would just not work for the plucky Betty Suarez... no matter how much she may want it to. So maybe Betty chose to head off with Gio to Italy in the finale? It's possible, but sandwich-making hottie Freddy Rodriguez is only expected to be on the show for one episode this season. Does this mean that the potential lovers had a spat while they were abroad? One can only hope. Either way it has to be more satisfying than who PJ picked on My Boys... at least I hope. If they pull that crap where Betty decides that she is going to chose herself instead of one of the two loverboys, I will officially be annoyed. That cliche is really, really getting overused lately.
There's been buzz about a musical episode of Ugly Betty for ages now, and the show even centered a whole episode around the Broadway production of Wicked but now there's talk right from the gossipy queens mouth. Michael Urie (aka Wilhelmina's bitchtastically gay assistant Marc) has been spreading the word that there could be an actual staged production of Ugly Betty heading towards Broadway, with singing and dancing and transvestites and fashion and magic and puppies or whatever. Urie even delightfully naively expressed hope that the cast -- who have a mixed amount of theater experience (Vanessa Williams rocked in Into the Woods and America Ferrara in Dog Sees God, an off-Broadway stage production of a twisted Peanuts cartoon) -- would star in the staged version. This is the most insanely awesome thing I've heard since they announced they were making a live-action Tetris game show.
Our favorite ballerinas are coming back to primetime.
Normally Mother's Day is a time to celebrate television's great moms, like Tammy on Friday Night Lights or Marge Simpson, but where's the fun in that? Instead, we pulled together a list of the bad TV moms who are currently wreaking havoc on their offspring on a regular basis. Happy Mother's Day! Hopefully your mom doesn't suck as hard as these people.
Most of the time we complain about characters on shows that we just hate with a passion and hope would go far, far away. But occasionally shows could be livened up by the reappearance of an old character (and no we don't necessarily mean the dead ghost ones, Denny). Hence the reason we're pretty psyched that George Clooney finally decided to bring back his hunky Dr. Doug Ross to ER (which is the only acceptable reason for them adding on extra episodes) before the show signs off. So we've compiled another list of characters that need to return to their old posts, stat.
The Office teased us with the idea of a spinoff and then pulled the rug out from under us. We were so hoping it would involve the Intercourse, PA branch and have guest spots with Tobey (speaking of which, did you see that real-life Tobey got married recently? Mazel Tov!) and someone even weirder than Dwight. But alas, we're getting a new show with Amy Poehler from the people who made the U.S. version of The Office that really has nothing to do with The Office. Here's our wish list of shows that should get spinoffs, and some ideas for the writers... in case they're still struggling from writers' strike lag.
