I knew if I could just get through yesterday and all of the baffling news about shows that I despise getting picked up, that today would bring me better things. And it has. Charlie, er, Dominic Monaghan, aka my favorite hobbit (sorry Samwise, I just love me some Merry) and the reason that I started watching Lost in the first place (not the reason that I've been banging my head into the wall and trying to figure out cryptic clues for the last four seasons and have watched this preview clip six times this morning, but definitely what sparked my initial interest in the show) is going to be on an episode of Chuck. I adore this show as I've mentioned just once or twice or three or four or more times before. Anyway, according to EW's Ausiello (who is in such trouble the next time I see him for not informing me that he would be talking to my favorite hobbit) Dominic is going to be playing a British rocker who is entangled with evildoers. Hmm... that sounds familiar. But there's no return of the Oasis wannabe band Drive Shaft. No feuding brothers, "You All (Everybody)" or drug addictions to be found on Chuck, just Dom as a good crazy metalhead. Swoon.
There are lots of new shows on the block, but they seem to be reminiscent of shows we know and love. Lost is coming to an end, so naturally, another show is looking to take its place. Octomom finally got her own reality show, which is basically another version of Jon & Kate Plus Eight. Well, without Jon. The only original TV show in the news is Steven Spielberg's pilot about aliens, and even that's pushing it. Anyway, there are some good news and some tragic news; you'll laugh and you'll cry, so proceed with caution.
Today is a pretty slow news day. But with all the Speidi drama, the speculation over whether Charlie will be returning to Lost, and who is TV's Ultimate Cougar's next prey ... I'm sure you'll be entertained.
