I have no reason for posting this poster, except that I like it and I’m looking forward to seeing more of the show:

Interview with the show’s creators here.


Putting the Sparks back in New York City [Gossip Girl]

Posted in Gossip Girl, North Americana, spoilerama on August 31, 2008 by jetsamjr

I don’t know about you, but I was completely let down by the vicious and bitchy Georgina Sparks’ wilted exit from Gossip Girl. Fortunately, it looks like she’s not done terrorising New York’s Upper East Side just yet:

“I don’t think there’s any boot camp in Idaho or anywhere else that will hold Georgina Sparks for long, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she makes her way back into the city. I don’t think she was very happy with Blair. They have some unfinished business.”

Waldorf v Sparks – now there’s a scrag fight I can’t wait to see.

One of my West Wing-addicted friends rapidly got really excited when I sent him this:

Tim Gunn stitches up Miley, Jen [Project Runway]

Tim Gunn thinks Miley Cyrus is “tarty” and Jennifer Aniston is “desperate“. Jeez, Tim, tell us what you really think! I like to imagine that he dispensed these pearls while clasping his hand pensively under his chin and peering over the top of his elegant spectacles.

A journey up Homer Simpson’s butt [The Simpsons]

Posted in news, North Americana, The Simpsons on August 30, 2008 by jetsamjr

Homer will get a colonoscopy in an upcoming Simpsons plot. Eeeeew. But this isn’t yet another example of the show’s writers creating an absurd storyline in lieu of actual creativity – it ties into an anti-cancer event on American TV.

The Michael Phelps Show, part 2 [news]

Posted in casting, North Americana on August 30, 2008 by jetsamjr

Make Me a Supermodel isn’t the only show cashing in on Olympics superstardom: Michael Phelps will make appearances in Saturday Night Live and Entourage.

In other news, Phelps is reportedly in talks to take the lead role in a remake of the sitcom Eight is Enough that will replace children with gold medals.
