Was Weeds Gunman a Misfire? Emmy Lovin' for Louie? Errors in Newsroom? And More TV Qs!
1 | Really? That’s the big twist with the Weeds gunman?
2 | Why did Falling Skies stage this emotional, quite unexpected reunion between Colonel Weaver and his daughter… just to have her leave? And how squirmy-icky was the harnessing facility? [Shudder]
3 | Given the attention to detail that Aaron Sorkin lavishes on his projects, why do The Newsroom‘s characters — who are already making unheard-of email blunders — insist on calling sound-on-tape bites “S-O-Ts” when the industry standard is to pronounce them “sots” (like “lots”)?
4 | Enough with these noobs — what if TNT’s Great Escape pitted ex-cons against each other? And armed the guards with (rubber) bullets??
5 | Where do we line up to give Drop Dead Diva‘s Grayson a hug?
6 | Are you loving this CM Punk/AJ/Daniel Bryan love triangle storyline on WWE Raw? It’s like they folded All My Children into wrestling, which for us is a huge win!
8 | How are we just noticing that Dallas alternates top billing between Josh Henderson and (as with this week’s episode) Jesse Metcalfe? Speaking of which: Those Ewing boys sure like to speed away from Southfork in their snazzy sports cars, don’t they?
9 | Did anyone else think of Bryan Fuller when they heard about A&E’s Bates Motel series? Sounds like a perfect companion to Hannibal, doesn’t it?
10 | Does anyone else feel like they’ve arrived late at the party — every year! — when the CBS Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular begins with the legendary orchestra already halfway through Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture”?
12 | In light of her, ahem, ballsy performance in this week’s Louie, is it fair to say Melissa Leo has a lock on next year’s Guest Actress in a Comedy Emmy? Should anyone else even bother entering?
13 | Rookie Blue‘s Charlotte Sullivan (aka “Gail Peck”) totally has the look of a Once Upon a Time heroine, doesn’t she?
14 | Speaking of Once Upon a Time: Can we second Alphas star Azita Ghanizada’s pitch that she play Princess Jasmine when the times comes? That said, where’s the “beef” in this increasingly damsel-heavy ensemble? Prince Charming can’t bear the burden alone!
15 | Can Barbara Walters or someone please score a sit-down with Katie Holmes, so the tabloids can simmah down and stop trying to fashion news stories out of a three-word comment (“I’m all right”) made to a paparazzo? And who knew the biggest obstacle to Joey and Pacey’s future was not Dawson but Tom Cruise?
