Is Blair a Happy Girl? Can Idol Work Its Makeover Magic? Did Smash Cheat? And More 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 American Idol, How I Met Your Mother, Parenthood, Revenge and Happy Endings!
1 | Did anyone else predict that Fringe “switched” Ninas on us, when the “bad” one came across so genuinely bewildered and innocent?
2 | While we appreciate the need for dramatic conflict, doesn’t anyone within The Walking Dead‘s survivor group like each other? Even Lost had its moments of bonding.
3 | Not to get all Miley Cyrus on you, but… since every Oscars telecast, without fail and despite annual critiques, is so engorged, can we assume the Academy forces producers to meet a quota of montages and pre-taped segments heralding the “magic” of moviemaking? And, who else could’ve lived without Billy Crystal’s weak, borderline-offensive ageist jokes aimed at Christopher Plummer and Max von Sydow’? And while the “Wizard of Oz focus group” skit may have fallen flat, wasn’t Jennifer Coolidge’s bit about “hatchet faces” and “long chins” one of the funniest parts of the night?
4 | Was anybody else thrown off by the rare sight of Blair smiling so happily at the end of Gossip Girl? Also, how do two people who look like William and Carol create a very blonde Lola?
5 | Was there some kind of hidden meaning or reference with the penguin mobile on How I Met Your Mother? Or was it just supposed to be cute?
6 | Who rocked the Snuggie better: Cougar Town‘s Cul-de-sac Crew or the HIMYM gang?
7 | Did the 2 Broke Girls‘ celebration give anyone else a craving for Carvel cake?
8 | Smash‘s ever-attentive Ellis knowing the words to “I Never Met a Wolf Who Didn’t Love to Howl”? Absolutely. The cater waitress who had earlier revealed herself to be a dancer? Yep, by all means she can go for a twirl. But how did Nick Jonas’ character magically know the lyrics to join in on that impromptu performance?
9 | Who else is OK with Ellis’ existence on Smash — only as long as Julia gets a chance to unleash some bitchery on him every time he appears?
10 | Didn’t Castle kind of tip its hand by casting one of The Vampire Diaries‘ werewolves in an episode about the hunt for Little Red Riding Hood’s stalker?
11 | The River, White Collar, The Secret Circle and now Castle. What’s up with TV’s recent obsession with creepy dolls/totems?!
12 | Anybody else think Parenthood‘s Braverman clan should start a family-run wedding planning business? That was the best-looking quickie ceremony ever! But are they really going to leave us hanging on the Mark/ Sarah engagement?! And was there really no happy medium between Adam and Crosby selling The Luncheonette for millions and tearing up the offer wholesale?
13 | How did White Collar‘s Mozzie stash away half the U-boat treasure without any of those who examined the manifest noticing a shortage?
14 | Can we all begin a prayer circle that American Idol‘s styling team will lead the Season 11 women out of the fashion wasteland and into the land of chic and fierce? These ladies need help — stat!
15 | To Jack Porter, postmark Revenge: Dude, why didn’t you burn the hoodie?! Speaking of murrrrder, did the whole “Takeda bashed Daniel over the head and then killed Tyler” reveal seem a little convenient/obvious? Lastly, Ashley — the same gal who, like, helps Victoria get dressed — is the family’s spokesperson at as critical a time as a murder scandal? (We get that she wanted it, but the Graysons allowed it?)
16 | Was Penny’s “whore bath” gaffe/misunderstanding on Happy Endings the funniest 40 seconds of television all week? And while we’re talking about the underrated comedy, which pal had the greatest sex dream about Dave: Jane or Brad… or maybe his conflicted crush, Penny? (We vote Brad!) Also, who can we contact about getting our own “Grant + Max 4eva” tees ASAP?
17 | Did Modern Family‘s Leap Day insanity upstage the 30 Rock celebrations?
18 | Who’s worse: Revenge‘s Tyler or Top Chef‘s own, eliminated-in-first-round-but-came-back-to-ruin-the-finale Tyler? And we totally get that being named Top Chef runner-up has to be a bummer, but was Sarah the sorest loser the competition has ever seen in nine seasons?
19 | Can NBC please order to series Good Looking, the Jenna Maroney-fronted crime procedural?
20 | How awesome was it to see Chuck Bartowski back on NBC this week? No matter that it was via a cardboard cutout on The Office — Chuck is Chuck is Chuck!
21 | Up All Night‘s grieving Ava was very funny, but is it too much to ask for an actual breakup scene with Kevin? Or at the very least a more cohesive reason for their sudden (off-screen? skipped episode?) split? We hope that’s not the last we’ve seen of Jason Lee.
22 | Any guesses as to which male Grey’s Anatomy co-star(s) Ellen Pompeo suggested she was, um, less than thrilled to hop in bed with, during her Chelsea Lately interview?
