What Horror Is Left to Be Storied? Did Revenge Rebound? Elementary Deduction? And More Qs!
1 | For those watching the Saturday-buried Underemployed: Are you Team Miles or Team
Hot Doc From Buffy Todd?
2 | Wasn’t Once Upon a Time surprisingly funny this week, between the awkward post-coitus interruptus and Regina telling Ruby to go take herself for a walk?
3 | After some rough patches this season, did you find the latest episodes of Revenge and The Good Wife to be a pleasant return to form? And speaking of the latter: Who cheered when Kalinda showed up on Alicia’s doorstep with the bag of incidentals?
5 | Was Mary and Matthew’s blind exchange on Downton Abbey, coupled with her last line to him pre-nuptials, so perfect that we didn’t care about not getting to see the rest of the wedding?
6 | Did Bunheads‘ stellar winter premiere make you realize how much you’d missed it? But should someone call Family Services about Boo’s unhealthy home situation (another baby’s on the way?). Can Melanie be our best friend? And did you catch Fanny’s hilarious dig at Dance Moms‘ Abby Lee Miller?
7 | We get it, Biggest Loser: Working out makes some people toss their cookies. But do you have to show us every single time it happens? (Conversely, can you please never stop showing us when contestants slide off the treadmills?)
8 | Come to think of it, Castle fans, we don’t know that much about Rick, do we? Was the bug Meredith put in Kate’s ear there a hint at the oft-rumored Papa Castle backstory we are to someday get?
9 | Which show did Deception remind you of more: Revenge, Dirty Sexy Money or Veronica Mars? (Heck, we’ll also throw in NBC’s one-and-done Kidnapped series.) And even though she’s not a series regular, is it safe to say that Bree Williamson (aka Flashback Vivian) has a job as long as the show’s on the air?
10 | How ironic was it, eh, that — as several How I Met Your Mother fans from the Great White North noted — the “Canadian guest stars” video was regionally blocked for Canada?
11 | Did New Girl‘s absinthe experiment make you want to A) try the storied spirits, or B) stay as far away from the green fairy as possible?
12 | After his very fun guest spots on Glee and now The New Normal, isn’t it obvious that Matt Bomer needs to do a comedy post-White Collar? And we’d send a gift basket for each of the shirtless New Normal scenes, but why wasn’t he shirtless in every scene?
13 | Although Cougar Town was the same intoxicating fun as always in its TBS debut, did the subplot about Andy doing something unspeakable to Ellie while she was Ambien’d seem a bit made-for-cable to you?
14 | How far out of your seat did you leap when NCIS suddenly erupted with machine gun fire and riddled Vance’s house with bullets? And then did your eyes erupt with tears as Ziva wept for her abba?
15 | Did this week’s Parenthood make you realize how much the show needs more Amber/Drew scenes?
16 | What was more ridiculous: the very idea of Fox’s Stars in Danger special, or the extremely (to the point of being pointless) generous judging?
18 | While it was great to see Horror Story‘s Dr. Thredson get his just desserts as three of our heroes went free, what is left for the final two episodes to be about, exactly? (What, does Johnny’s hooker pal have a third breast?)
19 | How soon before the end of Wednesday’s Nashville did you predict Juliette wasn’t going to wind up at the church? Wasn’t it weird that Peggy and the inappropriate photos only merited a casual reference after being such a big deal in the episode before? And that was quite a different Scarlett on the stage this week, no? Wowza.
20 | Was the wry, snarky way that Seth MacFarlane announced the Academy Award nominees on Thursday a good omen for how he’ll do as host on Feb. 24? And between him and the Globes’ Fey/Poehler combo, is the pressure on CBS to nail this fall’s Emmys host?
21 | Who else is really starting to subscribe to the Elementary theory making the rounds in our comments, that Sherlock is behind Watson’s hiring?
22 | Seriously, Big Bang Theory, where can we get a GPS nav system that “speaks Sheldon”? Or would it soon enough make us want to drive off a bridge?
23 | Wasn’t it Ocean’s Eleven-like cool the way that Scandal‘s Olivia, Mellie, Quinn et al conspired to fake Fitz’s awakening? That said… don’t you hope/pray that in the real life it’d take more than a couple anecdotes to prove that the leader of the free world has his hands firmly on the wheel?
