Normally Mother's Day is a time to celebrate television's great moms, like Tammy on Friday Night Lights or Marge Simpson, but where's the fun in that? Instead, we pulled together a list of the bad TV moms who are currently wreaking havoc on their offspring on a regular basis. Happy Mother's Day! Hopefully your mom doesn't suck as hard as these people.
We've already put out our plea for bubble show Chuck to return next fall, but plenty more of our favorites are in danger of falling through the network programming cracks. Here's nine more series that deserve another season, but may not get one. We know, we know, wishin' and hopin' didn't do Pushing Daisies any good, but we're sending out a prayer to the TV powers-that-be anyway: when upfront time rolls around in a month or so, please let at least some of these shows reappear on your schedules.
Wow. Some of the best TV shows on the air today (and one that got canceled, but is still pretty dope) come out on DVD this week, and we would totally run out and buy all of them and watch them back-to-back-to-back, but we have waaaayyy too much TV to watch tonight. There's just no time! Maybe next summer...
They are making a CSI movie? Really? That sounds... boring and unnecessary. What could possibly unfold in a CSI movie that couldn't be contained in a regular episode? We didn't even enjoy The X-Files movie and we liked that show. While we'd love to see a Veronica Mars or Buffy or Deadwood movie... or that long promised Arrested Development movie, we've narrowed our list down to ten other shows that are currently on (or aired this season) that could be better on the big screen than CSI.
It's a good day for TV nerd news. Vampire Diaries, Fringe, Smallville, Dollhouse, Firefly, Charmed, Terminator, Doctor Who -- all magnificently nerdy, and all tied into nerd-newsworthy announcements.
