Is Parenthood Too Chatty? What Is Finn Thinking? Is J.Lo Dissing Randy? And More TV Questions!
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, here are some queries we are going to throw at you, from shows including How I Met Your Mother, Glee, Parenthood, American Idol and Happy Endings!
1 | Who else loved the Memento homage on Chuck? And Sarah Walker as the Intersect 3.0? Holy. Crap.
2 | Is Once Upon a Time‘s Evil Queen exclusively styled by Jean-Paul Gaultier? (Not that we’re complaining. At all.)
3 | Is there any living being that The Good Wife‘s Kalinda does not have chemistry with? And on a related note, how about Life on Mars alum Jennifer Ferrin’s transformation from mousy Unforgettable guest star to “hottie geek woman”?
4 | For a spy-in-training, shouldn’t Pan Am‘s Kate be more aware of her loud, clacking heels?
5 | Are Desperate Housewives‘ writers trying to cement Susan’s position as the dumbest character in TV history? Seriously, you go to the home of the man whose body you helped bury in the woods, engage in suspicious conversation with his widow and stepdaughter, then leave a signed check with your name and address in their possession?
6 | Was How I Met Your Mother paying homage to this low-budget Russian version of the show? And was anyone else expecting American Horror Story‘s Tate to pop up when Marshall invaded the basement?
7 | Hawaii Five-0‘s Kamekona sure likes his [FAST FOOD CHAIN NAME REDACTED UNTIL WE SEE A RED CENT] sandwiches, doesn’t he?
8 | Should we all work to make Bachelor bait Elyse’s wild-eyed, incredulous “Who is she?” the first big TV catchphrase of 2012? (These girls have already gotten the ball rolling.)
9 | So, Pretty Little Liars‘ Lucas has been acting like a creepy, psychotic “A” ripoff because… he felt bad about losing Caleb’s money? C’mon.
10 | Is the Parenthood cast encouraged by producers to jump on their co-stars’ lines, or is that just a creative decision they collectively made to drive home the show’s authentic vibe? Either way, it’s getting really out of hand. To the point where it’s almost impossible to understand what anyone is saying.
11 | Why do so many teens on TV – from Gilmore Girls to One Tree Hill to now Glee — think getting married while still in high school or just barely out of it is a good idea? And was anyone else too distracted by the sight of Artie rolling into the pool to focus on the Will/Emma proposal?
12 | Anyone else pleasantly surprised by 90210‘s really well-executed baby twist?
13 | Did Raising Hope boss Greg Garcia have any difficulty sliding by the Fox brass Virginia’s plug for NBC’s “smart” comedies?
14 | Is Happy Endings‘ Alex getting progressively dumber? Elisha Cuthbert is really funny with her deliveries, but we don’t remember Alex being this much of an airhead in Season 1.
15 | Harry Connick Jr. is usually bubbling over with charisma, so why was his new Law & Order: SVU stud a bit of a dud? We’re happy to see Liv gettin’ some action, but this guy needs to emote.
16 | We get it, Charlize Theron is stunning, but why did Top Chef‘s Tom Colicchio deem it appropriate to relentlessly flirt with the guest judge during the elimination challenge?
17 | Was it just the editing, or is American Idol‘s Jennifer Lopez starting to show open disdain for Randy Jackson’s singular brand of verbal diarrhea?
18 | Who else shrieked with excitement during the last seconds of this week’s Vampire Diaries? Wish fulfilled!
19 | Zachary Quinto kinda sorta has to now pop up on The Big Bang Theory, right? Does Evil Wil Wheaton need a sidekick?
20 | This has been nagging us for a few weeks, but why did Up All Night change its marvelous opening credits — which quickly recapped Reagan and Chris’ life — to a hodgepodge of pics that paint them as party animals and highlight Reagan’s work buddies? Perhaps a more grievous offense: Is baby Amy getting a lot less face time?
21 | Just to be clear: Project Runway All Stars doesn’t feature Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Nina Garcia or Michael Kors? Perhaps they should titled it Project Runway All Substitutes?
22 | Did The Soup‘s (admittedly very amusing) merkin shtick between Joel McHale and Lucy Lawless ring any bells for anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Ausiello?
23 | Anyone else rooting for Bobby Newport on Parks and Recreation, if only to see Paul Rudd on a weekly basis?
24 | Really? Entertainment Tonight‘s top two stories on Thursday were about the severed head found near the Hollywood sign and the cruise ship disaster in Italy? What does either have to do with showbiz?
