Your favorite TV doctor is back, and no, it's not the mean one with the cane.
"Siri -- confirm that I really do have the moves like Jagger."
Call it Harry Potter and the Half-Drunk Ad Man.
Tommy Lee Jones is pretty busy this summer, you know, fighting aliens and all with Will Smith. I'm surprised he has time for this.
Jeez, The X Factor did some serious damage.
Apparently, Dwight Schrute is as sick of Dunder Mifflin as we are.
Did anyone notice the huge amount of pop culture references in "Lifetime Supply"? I felt like every few lines, there was a reference to Colin Firth or Harry Potter -- not that it hurt the episode or anything. In fact, last night's winter premiere was one of my favorites of Season 3. There were a lot of great things happening in the episode, but I give credit to Sofia Vergara for actually nailing most of her lines, as well as everything to do with Manny, Jay and Javier's storyline. Benjamin Bratt is always excellent on this show and he feels like one of the few guest stars that the writers know exactly how and when to use. I could've done without another storyline featuring Mitchell and Cameron bickering, but all together, "Lifetime Supply" was a great way to start off the second half of the season. Of all of the laugh-out-loud lines, these, to me, were the best:
It's closer than you think!
Glee is full steam ahead on the stunt casting.
Say what you will about the moral aspect of parents parading their children around in intense competitions that may or may not be age-appropriate, but in terms of the entertainment factor of the TV shows that portray these cultures, it's hard to argue that they're not at least a little bit intriguing, if not shamefully enjoyable. After all, the best parts of these series come from the pointless drama and the stressed-out adults. (Though I do like the moments when the kids are genuinely happy, too. I'm not a monster!) TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras has had a strong choke-hold on the market of madness since early 2009... but after a strong premiere season of Lifetime's Dance Moms, I think it's necessary to pit these two shows against each other in a grudging, hair-pulling battle of exploitative candid reality shows, if not only to cut down your weekly intake of stage mothers next season. Just know that when I say "Winner", I mean which show I would rather watch, given the battle.
