Episode: "The Love Circle Overlap." I was disappointed with last week's episode, but Weeds seems to be back with the good stuff this week to make up for last week's ounce of shake. There's nothing like a drugr trip and an underage threesome to get things back into gear. Nancy:
NOTE: I’m not writing this post because I think you should watch the new 90210 on the CW.
It's something of an understatement, but cancer really sucks. It kills millions of people every year and now it has taken two more innocent victims in the form of Christina Applegate's boobs. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and went in for a double mastectomy to get rid of it and keep it from spreading.
I have a huge crush on Rosario Dawson. There's something about her smile that's absolutely irresistable. I think it has something to do with its close proximity to her chest. NBC is giving us all a chance to spend some quality time with Rosario in a web-only sci-fi series called The Gemini Division.
Episode: "Stay Frosty." Hey, look! We're six episodes in and the war is still all screwed up. Who could've seen that coming? It's incredible how things just keep getting worse for these recon Marines. It wasn't bad enough that they had to deal with inept officers, but now they have a bunch of dumb-ass civilian soldiers out in the field putting everyone at risk.
While Comedy Central's batting average has been pretty solid as far as roasts go, some are definitely better than others. With a line-up that included Norm McDonald, Jim Norton and the rest of the regular roasters, I had high hopes going into Danny Tanner's event. Did it live up to the hype? Almost.
The episode “Three Sundays” Starts off with Peggy at church hearing the sermon of a Pastor speaking about morals. She gets up to leave, somewhat uncomfortable with the message and runs into one of the priests. He comes over for dinner with Peggy’s fam, and the sexual innuendo beings.
The episode Sticker Shock starts with Schwayze and Cisco doing a radio show with Ryan Seacrest to debut the Buzzin' single. Afterwards, they head over to Jordan’s office to talk about the upcoming east coast radio tour. DP drops off some of the 40,000 new promo cd’s that are going to be used for their radio tour.
I think that if I had super powers, I probably would not use them for the greater good. I’d have the ability to cure hang over’s and make it less humid outside. I would be able to do my taxes and fix my delinquent car registration just by thinking about it. My gas bill would pay itself. They would not make a TV show about me.
You all know what the Olympics are, so there's little use in us explaining it to you here. There are hundreds of events and thousands of athletes competing to see which country is the best as running, swimming and shooting air rifles. No, seriously. Air rifle shooting is a real event.
Episode 2 “No Bitchassness” starts off with Diddy talking about how big his empire is. Sleep is forbidden, and every night he just cant wait to wake up and work. So the teams are woken up at 5am and hustled out of the house onto a helipad where a chopper is waiting for each team.
Episode: "Allison." The most fun I have ever had with one of those compressed air keyboard dusters was back in college when we discovered that if you spray it while the can is upsidedown, you can freeze things. It will also burn the hell out of your skin. Because of that, I guess it never occured to me to inhale all the crap inside of the can. Allison did, though.
Documentaries can be about as interesting as an eighth grade biology film strip, but when the cameras are following around people with serious drug addictions, you never know what's going to happen. After watching the subjects further screw their lives up for a few days, they spring an intervention on them and try to get them treatment.
Episode: "Little Boats." The run of fantastic episodes had to come to an end some time and I guess this was it. That's not to say that it was a bad episode, but with all the crap that has happened in the past couple weeks, I think it was a much needed break that let the writers do some housekeeping and hopefully set up some wild stuff that's yet to come.
Episode 2.03, "The Benefactor" starts off on a comedian doing a commercial for Utz potato chips and comparing a fat woman who has walked onto the set to the Hindenburg. Meanwhile, Betty Draper is riding horses at the stables, ogling one of the male riders with her friend.
Episode: "A Burning Dog"
At the top of the first episode “Raise The Roof” Ludacris and Tommy Lee have yet to be united. They are both sent on mysterious tasks to discover their mission…a mission of utmost importance.
This year's crop of comics for LCS was easily one of the best, but America (and the show's producers) narrowed the field down to five for the hour-and-a-half long finale. I think they were all solid choices, but the actual final show itself could've used a little more, you know, comedy. The opening:
There are a lot of reality shows out there, but this one actually makes a little sense. Contestants from all across the globe bring their stand-up chops in front of judges from other NBC properties and then, in the grand tradition, America votes. The comics tend to be pretty funny, but they sprinkle in a bunch of wacky gimmick acts, I feel like they could do without.
Episode: Mexico Anthony Bourdain said that he thinks vegans are "rude," which leads me to believe that he would get along just fine with Bear Gryll who is willing to eat just about anything. For the season five premiere, he dropped himself in the middle of the Mexican desert where, apparently, they don't have In 'N Out.
Bear Grylls is the kind of guy that makes the rest of us slobs look bad. He's climbed Mt. Everest and knows enough survival techniques to make MacGuyver look like a cut-rate Eagle Scout. Every week he drops himself into an intense situation and does all kinds of gross crap to get through it. Don't watch it with your girlfriend unless you want her to know how much of a wimp you are.
As usual, Cisco and Shwayze are late for their appointment—a photo shoot on the beach. Jordan has a heart to heart with Warren about the weekend shows in San Diego.
Episode: "Exploding Steak"
If you're the kind of kid that used to watch Bill Nye, then you've probably already been following these two mad scientists blow crap up since the beginning. Mythbusters is the show that's almost single-handedly responsible for Discovery's line-up full of shows where people explode things and justify it by showing some scientific formula.
The first episode of I Want to Work for Diddy does what every reality show does—it shows you incredible losers that are immediately cut lose. From a production standpoint, this is great filler that you can really only do at the top of a show. And viewers love it because it helps cement our suspicion that the world is filled with people MUCH crazier than we are.
I'll admit that I skipped out on most of the semi-final round, but I feel like it's part of my duty as a fan of fake sports to cover the finale. There are no new gladiators, no new events and the contenders aren't particularly interesting, but I'm the kind of guy who only watches football during the Superbowl and only goes to church on holidays (and even then it's only to pick up girls).
Episode: "I Am the Table." Finally!
J.J. Abrams is the first to admit that his success is all about building buzz around the monster before showing it. The fact that he has figured out Hollywood probably makes him sleep well at night. On his mattress filled with money.
Episode: "Combat Jack"
RecapThe Episode “Flight 1” starts off at a 60’s marijuana party where Peggy is doing some necking with a boy in sharp horn-rimmed glasses. An American Airlines crash in NY makes Sterling Cooper have to pull some of their ads for Mohawk Airlines.
