Having really only gotten into Desperate Housewives this season, and not really having any investment in any of the regular characters, the biggest thing that keeps me looking forward to each new episode is Ol' Blue Eyes, Neal McDonough. As "Creepy" Dave Williams, new husband to Edie Britt and widower to the woman (and child) who died in Mike and Susan's car accident, McDonough has been a portrait in deranged malevolence each week, insinuating himself in the lives of his new neighbors and throwing vague suspicion off of himself by driving away Mrs. McCluskey, not to mention framing Porter Scavo. But judging by the way he talks to his dead family with increasing frequency, and the fact that the season has to end sometime, we expect some serious stuff to go down pretty soon. Here's a few ways we think he's gonna get revenge.
If I had it my way, every single episode of Parks and Recreation would be wonderful, and we could spend Friday mornings going over funny lines and cracking up at all of the crazy shenanigans witnessed in Pawnee -- that's what happens most of the time, and what I expected to happen with the return of Louis C.K. as Officer Dave. Like most people who go on the Internet, I love basically everything about C.K. (and can vouch that Live at the Beacon Theater is well-worth the $5), but Dave just didn't do it for me, nor did "Dave Returns" as an episode.
It's more Cowell, less Deschanel at Fox this month.
Okay, I think we've established (and exhausted) the topic of how terrible the CBS laugh track is. It's truly unbearable and makes perfectly good shows like 2 Broke Girls seem way more hokey than they actually are. And in the case of hopelessly bad shows, it emphasizes how awful they are. Guess which category How to be a Gentleman fits in?
