Of course, one always says that, and it's almost never true. But in the aftermath of the compromised, comparatively short, intermittently surprising 2008 Oscar telecast, there were a few things floating about the internet that I thought might be of interest.
1. Miley Cyrus didn't trip on her heels! And Colin Farrell wasn't drunk (or if he was, it wasn't why he slipped on the way to the podium), and John Travolta wasn't pulled downward by the weight of his own irrelevance. All of them slipped on some kind of silicon spray used by stagehands.
I'm just going to pretend they use Pam, because that's funnier.
2. Did you notice that Brad Renfro wasn't in the "In Memoriam" montage last night? I confess that I totally didn't, because I was waiting for whatever beautiful shot of Heath Ledger they picked from Brokeback Mountain
. Anyway, apparently Renfro was left out on purpose
3. You know the conventional wisdom that David Letterman has never hosted the Oscars since that one time, in 1995, because he stank up the joint -- conventional wisdom, by the way, that I never credited because I thought he was hilarious? According to Nikki Finke, it's not true
: she says the AMPAS asks him back every year but he always says no. Aw, Dave.

Having seen the movie version of this show almost ten years ago, I'm not exactly sure why this TV show exists. I guess somebody at ABC Family thought that the premise of two diametrically opposed sisters, one a rebel feminist and one a popular wannabe, was good enough to milk for at least one season? I'm not sure what will happen once the concluding events of the original movie (and The Taming of the Shrew before it) come to pass, i.e. the feminist sister finally dating a boy, thereby making it okay for her little sis to date, but they seem to be providing a number of other sub-plots to fill the time. And I suppose they could always have the older sister date, then stop dating, and the wacky dad can make the younger sis stop dating until big sis is up and running again, thereby stretching out the drama. Seems far-fetched, but this is a sitcom, after all.
