Two pop culture addicts' snarky musings…

A Love Letter to the Week of November 8th

I’m going to make this week’s preview very simple – this is the best week in television ever. Of course, that’s debatable and maybe that’s just the opinion of your humble bloggers, Mel and Sarah, but I stand behind that statement.

Up first is Glee and the unveiling of a new gay boy in the form of Darren Criss, who is ridiculously adorable. If you don’t believe me, watch this awesome version of “Teenage Dream” and call me a liar.

Making its triumphant Fall return fresh off a sixth season renewal announcement is my favorite show ever, Psych. And, why might you ask, is this week particularly amazing? That would be because not only is Carey Elwes back to conclude the tale of Pierre Despereaux, but my sources tell me we may finally get the Shawn/Juliet coupledom we’ve all been waiting for. I’m a total shipper at heart – sue me. Watch a preview of the hilarity below when Shawn practices his Juliet speech on McNabb.

Oh, an on a side note, Psych-os, Club Psych on the USA website is wicked addicting and my new favorite time waster.

And finally, to cap the greatness off this week, is Merlin. Not just any Merlin though, a Gwen/Arthur centric episode sure to make me want to rip Morgana apart slowly and cry a little bit when Arthur and Gwen get ripped apart yet again by Uther. Still, yay arthur/gwen.

 

Anybody have anything in particular they’re looking forward to this week? I know Sarah can’t rave enough about Glee so I know she’s excited. Are you?

Weekly Preview – 10/25/2010

No, wait, I’ll say it for you. We suck – we totally suck. Our poor neglected blogverse. All I can say is we’re sorry and we’ll try hard not to do it again. In a week, NaNoWriMo starts and you’ll be even more amused/frustrated by us. And if you don’t know what that is, google it peeps.

If it’s any consolation, I spent the day being yelled at by residents who can’t seem to figure out their water bills, went straight from work to the liquor store, to Starbuck’s, came straight in and sat down to write this. So it’s technically the first thing I’ve done since I got home. In any event, let’s get to pre-Halloween programming shall we?

Monday – Taylor Swift‘s new album, Speak Now, drops today. I love her and I don’t care what anyone else thinks so ūüėõ Ahem…if you’re more into hot boys and sunshine, check out Hawaii Five-0 tonight, which welcomes guest star Kevin Sorbo (aka Hercules for those of you playing the home game) to it’s shores tonight.

Kurt as Riff Raff

Tuesday – Get ready to bring your knees in tight and get ready to do the time warp with the cast of Glee as they take on Rocky Horror. As with all things Glee these days, it could either be awesomely bad or just bad so let’s hope they got the awesome memo. In preparation, watch the movie and then watch Tim Curry‘s guest spot on Psych…mostly because it’s hilarious and I’m watching it now.

Wednesday – You should have a standing appointment with ABC’s Modern Family, but in case you’re on the fence, the Dunphy’s take on the tradition of the haunted house and Cameron hates Halloween because of a traumatic childhood experience…which seems fitting because he dresses up all the other days of the year so he’s earned a day off.

Thursday – The Vampire Diaries has been on fire this season with twist after heart wrenching, jaw dropping twist. Given that this weeks episode is set in the midst of a masquerade ball, the roller coaster is sure to continue.

Friday – So I’ve managed to maintain my boycott of a Smallville without Michael Rosenbaum…until this season reeled it’s super head and I rediscovered its wondrous charm, even if it is a Chloe-less charm. After you watch Tess try to find a cure for her rapidly aging little clone boy, Alexander, keep watching for Supernatural, where supposedly we will finally get some answers as to what the hell is wrong with Sam. He’s just not right…

Ok, back to my Psych marathon I go. New season starts next month so I’m getting…aw, hell, psyched. Chocolate pudding here I come!

Week in Review – 9/11/2010

The time is finally upon us, my little tv addicts, the fall season is finally upon us. Breathe it in, really enjoy the salty sweetness of time well wasted. Let’s begin shall we…

Josh Gorban - Illuminations drops November 2010

*Josh Groban‘s new album, Illuminations, drops in November. If you happen to stumble onto his website, you might just be able to download his new single, “Hidden Away”, for free. I’m just saying…

*Avatar in 3D IMAX = best 14.50 ever spent. The Deathly Hallows trailer in IMAX also worth the 14.50.

*Casting lesson #30,978: Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher are better in theory than in practice.

*After a long, impatient summer, Sons of Anarchy came back with a vengeance, quite literally. I am continually amazed at Kurt Sutter‘s genius way of balance raw human emotion with the violence of a life spent serving Samcro. I can’t handle week after week of this emo, numb Jax. Hopefully, his outburst in the final moments of the premiere will lead to less brooding and more doing.

*Vampire Diaries is back! Vampire Diaries is back! Did I mention Vampire Diaries is back? I don’t think I have ever said “oh my God” so many times during a television show before. Kevin Williamson is showing a Joss Whedon-esque lack of fear in his execution of this new season of TVD. Ruthless is the word that best describes the premiere. I love that Stefan remembered he was a vampire over the summer. And Damon continues to be heartbreaking as ever. The man just needs a hug and probably some kind of vampire valum. Someone has to love him best…The true winner of the night is Nina Dobrev who proved she was more than just a pretty face by channeling her inner sadistic bitch. Katherine is a force to be reckoned with and I imagine she shall be all season long if we’re lucky.

*Nikita is worth a watch. It’s nothing we haven’t seen before and it certainly isn’t going to blow anybody’s mind, but it has potential. And for a CW show, that’s really all you can ask for.

*The CW finally released a real trailer for the upcoming season of Supernatural, which I have watched approximately 3,219 times. Check it out below and watch the Season 6 premiere of SPN September 24.

*Jane Lynch made the best cameo ever as Sam’s crazy deadbeat mother on iCarly tonight. If there ever was a time to watch Nickelodeon, now would be that time.

*Why are Spencer and Heidi still news?

*Holy crap, Psych! If you haven’t seen the summer finale yet, I’ll just say this, DO NOT MISS THE LAST FIVE MINUTES! You were warned…

*Ditto for White Collar.

*Ditto for Drop Dead Diva – apparently this is the summer of the cliff hanger.

All right, back to my Merlin induced stupor. I should have known I’d get sucked into this show from the jump…Is that my goodnight’s sleep disappearing into Camelot?

And because I can – the new Glee Season 2 promo:

Week in Review – 9/4/2010

Okay, so I’m cutting it a little close, but I did post two things in one day so that has to count for something, right? I actually don’t have a whole lot to say this week because not a whole lot has happened, but let me see what I can muster…

*Dancing with the Stars should rename itself Dancing with the Reality Stars since that seems to be half the new cast anyway. And to quote the great Joan Rivers “Bristol Palin’s going to be on DWTS with the guy from Jersey Shore? Perfect! The Situation will be competing against The Embarrassment.” I’ll watch a little bit just to see Jennifer Grey and Margaret Cho. Nobody puts Baby in the corner!

*So excited for White Collar next week. I loved how they cut this week’s eppie right before they opened the music box. Suspense is great and all but WHAT’S IN THE DAMN BOX?

Preview for the White Collar summer finale airing September 7th

*Weird freckle faced little boy is still playing Young Shawn on Psych. Where is my Liam?

*Emmy’s = LAME, what a let down. The only highlights of the night were Ricky Gervais‘ waiter trying to hand Matthew Perry, an alcoholic, a beer and Eric Stonestreet winning Supporting Actor. Everything else was just predictable…HBO wins, Mad Men wins, Bryan Cranston wins, Jewell is still lame…shall I continue?

*ATWT has official lost my respect and my viewership with the impending death of Doctor Reid Oliver. The Young and the Restless and I are now exclusive – especially now that half the cast of As the World Turns and Guiding Light are now on Y&R anyway. Holla for the upcoming entrance of Paul Leydon. Soap operas can never have too many Australians.

*Maroon 5’s new album Hands All Over is up for Pre-order on iTunes. The Lady Antebellum collaboration alone is worth the money. Also, my beloved Gin Blossoms also have a new album on the horizon. I need to stop iTunes stalking before I go broke.

Ok, so apparently there were interesting things that happened this week. Not to steal Sarah’s thunder, but since she’s gone this weekend anyway, I don’t think she’ll mind, but I need to Sons of Anarchy, which premieres next week on FX. Despite Charlie Hunnam’s unfounded whining about Kurt Sutter’s tight lipped story methods, Katy Sagel will be brilliant as always and Charlie Hunnam is still a damn good actor despite his unfortunate need to bite the hand that feeds him.

Melissa’s Week in Review…a little early

I know the week doesn’t technically end until tomorrow, but I’m gonna have to jump the gun. It’s a long story involving a dead disc drive, a complaint letter and a quirky tech support dude named James, but I am sadly computer-less for a few days.

Barry Watson’s heartbreaking guest spot as a man using a clown costume to grieve the loss of his wife on Sunday’s episode of Drop Dead Diva ¬†reminded me why we need him back on a prime time show pronto. Why did they cancel Samantha Who again?

Tuesday’s episode of White Collar could quite possibly be my favorite yet with them shifting gears to a more Moz-centric episode. The foreshadowing could have been a little more subtle, but the end result more than made up for it. I loved some of the Burke/Mozzie exchanges – “Don’t think this is my only safe house…I call this one Tuesday?” Why? “Because I’m usually here on Wednesdays.” Pure genius.

Where did Liam James¬†go? My favorite young Shawn has been replaced by a freckled, dull little boy without his sparkle and shine on this week’s episode of Psych. Please let the switch be temporary because he totally makes those Young Shawn and Gus vinettes.

I¬†am loving/addict to The Band perry’s new song “If I Die Young.” Everyone should check that out on iTunes. Also, if you like Train, Pat and the boys did a killer cover of Rihanna’s Umbrella at their recent Unplugged session at Vh1. You can find it at Vh1.com here.

Check out the trailer for Robert Downey Jr’s new movie, Due Date here because it’s hilarious and he has to road trip with¬†Zach Galifianakis¬†– Trailer

I am lovin’ RuPaul’s Drag U on LOGO. It’s like a gayer, more interesting version of that show with Carson Kressley on Lifetime. I never thought I would write a sentence in which something would be gayer and more interesting than Carson…this is a monumental day.

All right, kittens, I’m off to rediscover my Emmy weekend/Supernatural induced stupor which you will probably find me in until my computer has returned.

Check out Sarah’s Weekly Preview Sunday and watch the Emmy’s!
