Spoiler Alert Thursday
While it was the proper outcome that Peter Dinklage won in his category and it while it was great that he famously thanked his dog-sitter, it’d be nice if he stopped using that prong collar on his dog. Anyway, a picture.
Now that she has conquered professional televised karaoke, it would appear that the most repulsive woman alive is moving into competitive belly dancing.
The new TV season is upon us. We’ve had the chance to check out some new shows (sorry, no screen caps this week!). I mentioned “Ringer” last week as being particularly bad. It wasn’t just the pilot that was bad, it was also the second episode. I highly do not recommend this show, but, after watching two episodes, it seems we are committed until cancellation, which I hope is mercifully soon. Sure, it was more teen supernatural romance, but, for what it was, I enjoyed “The Secret Circle.” With “Ringer,” I really don’t care about Siobhan’s motivations for faking her own death; at least with “The Secret Circle” I’ll watch to find out what happened to all their parents. The girl from “Life Unexpected” and the “good witch” are intolerable, but the dark-haired “mean/bad witch” is, if nothing else, entertaining. I’m glad John Connor is getting a pay-cheque, but is this really the best way to prepare for the rise of the machines?
The other new show we watched was “Unforgettable.” More like “Unwatchable.” In a really ballsy move, io9, the sci-fi and cool science stuff website, had a major take-down of the show yesterday. Quite funny. They conclude, “It’s hard to imagine this “human computer” procedural will keep growing its viewership after people realize its premise is basically tedium, laced with incredibly bad drama.” I concur. We only watched the show because Poppy Montgomery was our deceased dog’s, Minnie, favourite actress. (Her favourite actor was Tahmoh Penikett.)
Otherwise, we spent the past week starting and finishing season 6 of “Supernatural” on DVD. We started last Wednesday or Thursday and finished last night. That’s a lot of Sam, Dean, and Castiel. I was disappointed that the sixth disc was scratched out of the box and, as a result, the disc skipped the scene where Castiel kills Balthazar. Unfortunately, I’ve already tossed my receipt and I don’t know if I’ll be able to get a new copy, which obviously sucks. We both had thought Crowley was killed in the season finale–turns out he wasn’t, which is great. I look forward to the possibility of Sam, Dean and Crowley driving around the country hiding from Castiel. “Supernatural” premiers on Friday, along with “Fringe” (which also had Balthazar in it where he is also dead–but he was a robot-man-machine from the other side, so maybe there is another copy somewhere.) And while we’re on the Balthazar track, who was also on “General Hospital” as Jax’s evil brother, I see that James Franco has returned to Port Charles for an extended stay. Too bad it isn’t summer otherwise I’d be more able to watch.
Apparently 1/3 Canadian television sets were turned to the premier of “Two and a Half Men.” No wonder the shows I like are cancelled.
“You’re a witch. We are all witches. There. Done.”
