Somewhere, William Hung is probably trying to sue Thomas Jane for stealing his name and life story and turning it into a TV series. That guy already seems to suffer under several delusions, what's one more?
It's a slow yet mildly entertaining day for TV news.
Zombies, Conans and the cockroach-like survival abilities of Hung.
Today we get some blasts from the past with a Seinfeld reunion and Amy Poehler's return to SNL, and a look towards the future with a video game based on The Bachelor. It's enough to make anyone nostalgic.
Slow news day today, but someone is trying to piss on Buffy's grave, so gather up the pitchforks and head to Hollywood, Whedonites.
I've been giggling about the premise of the new HBO series Hung all morning. Basically it is about a middle-aged man with a bigger than average member who walks softly and decides to use his big stick to get further in life. I'm snickering like a 13-year-old boy instead of the 30-something-year-old woman that I am. Oh no, what if his last name is Johnson. Wait, better yet, what if his name is Dick Johnson. Oh god, that would be so incredible. Sadly, I can't stop myself from laughing, and it is really, depressing because I'm all alone here at TWoP HQ today. So I'm giggling to myself and coming up with lame penis-related jokes. Real mature. Anyway, my excitement and laughter finally died down when I got past the premise and read that one of the masterminds of this um, probing new project was the same guy who created The Riches. Damn it. Such interesting source material from the one person who can make it so boring that I want to gouge my eyes out. Sigh.
Every year we start to get excited this time in mid-August because the crisp smell of fall TV is in the air. And while not all that many of the fall shows actually look promising, it's got to be better than most of the dreck that we've been stuck watching since June. This summer in particular seems to have had a lot of duds and disappointments (and very few highlights), so we're extra excited for it to be over. Here's why.
