It is a slow news week out there in TV land and I just can't bring myself to talk about Speidi and their non-wedding in any depth. That's why we've got awesome recappers. But in poking around the wilds of the internet, I spotted these two treats, that I thought you all may enjoy. Especially if you are in desperate need of a wrapping break, or a family break.
There's a good amount of content packed into the fourth-season set of Desperate Housewives, which should come as good news to viewers who were drawn into this season by new regulars Dana Delaney (formerly of China Beach), Nathan Fillion (Firefly), Gary Cole (Office Space) and Justine Bateman (Family Ties). ...Okay, so maybe Justine Bateman didn't draw anybody in. Still, a lot of talent was added to an already talent-packed show, and the DVD set doesn't disappoint. Here are the special features you can find under the Sizzler Steakhouse-style cover of the "Sizzling Secrets" edition... which seems to be the only version available. Apparently, non-sizzling just isn't an option with this show.
We're excited that Joss Whedon put his show on halt when he started seeing poor-quality scripts come across his desk. We're all about making the show not suck... but does a big change before the show even debuts spell trouble for the show? We hope not, because there's not a hell of a lot we enjoy more than watching Eliza Dushku kick people's ass. Unless it is Jennifer Garner or Angelina Jolie kicking people's asses.
Now this is what I called being prepared. Joss Whedon loyalists are tired of being burned by Fox who caused Whedon's Firefly to go down in a blaze of glory by pulling it off the air in its first season. The devotees have banded together in support of Joss's new midseason (as in January 2009!) series Dollhouse which also stars awesome Buffy alum Eliza Dushku. These crazies, er, fans are campaigning harder than Hillary Clinton, and arranging viewing parties and creating at cult-like buzz about a show that no one has even seen yet! Part of me admires these nut jobs, er, fans for using the power of the internet to support their favorite TV guru, and since the clips of this show that were shown at the Fox upfront look kick ass, they shouldn't be disappointed by the series when it eventually airs.
I must be a glutton for punishment, or really just in need of a good cry, because I'm watching the season finale of House again. I would like to make it clear that I don't cry at TV shows frequently. It really takes a lot, but there was something so poignant and heartbreaking about this particular episode that I just caved to the watery eyes and grabbed some tissues. Sara M does a fabulous job of recapping the entire episode, but if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend watching the episode below before you read about it. Even if you aren't a big fan of the series, your heart might melt just a little bit, as the show takes a break from its typical procedural style and goes out on a limb with a trippy concept. Oh, and if nothing else, check out Anne Dudek in that fierce red pantsuit, she looks freaking amazing. I'm totally jealous. Best thing that ever happened to Cutthroat Bitch, aka Amber, was for her not to get the job working for House, so she could wear fabulous clothes and not be stuck in a white coat or scrubs all the time.
In a white, white room, there was a white, white queen.
