Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? We'll never forget you, Dick.
I recently watched the original V mini-series in preparation for the new show, and I have to say, I learned a lot of important things from it. I now know that secret lizard people are, first of all, a very real and imminent threat, and secondly, fairly easy to identify, if you know how to spot them. They tend to be polite, attractive, averse to science professionals, partial to mind control, onesies and easily manipulated members of the press, and above all intent on storing humans as personal slaves and/or food sources. Of course, I know plenty of people like that; I watch TV all day. Here are the most likely secret lizard people walking amongst our favorite shows.
The Bravo A-List Awards (or as we affectionately refer to them around here, "The Bravo Prom") aired last night, and as expected the show was a mixed bag of really entertaining and really frustrating -- hey, kind of like Bravo programming! They are so meta over there. Anyway, if you're as much a psycho Bravo reality fan as I am, read on for my picks for best and worst moments of the night, and play along at home!
Yipeee! Another reductive sociological study regarding pop culture! I really love these things. The latest one states that unhappy people watch more television on average than those who deem themselves to be "happy." The study, conducted (I bet) by the same pretentious elitists you find at parties bragging that they "don't even own a TV!" says that "very happy people [are] more socially active, attend more religious services, vote more and read more newspapers. By contrast, unhappy people watch significantly more television in their spare time." Church-going and newspaper-reading? Really? These are the signifiers of happiness? I call opposites day.
When news broke yesterday that The Hills/The City supporting character Kelly Cutrone would be getting her own Bravo series, we basically lost our collective minds in the TWoP offices. Kelly Cutrone is an unsung badass of "reality" television, and we all need an hour of her awesomeness in our lives each week. Which got me thinking about a few other supporting reality cast members I'd like to see get their own shows. Drumroll!
