Golden Globe nominations pretty much what you’d expect [awards]

Mad Men

The Golden Globe nominations are out:

Best television series drama
In Treatment
Mad Men
True Blood

House, really? It seems so… out of place among the rest of the best drama nominees. Maybe the HFPA thought they needed to tap at least one drama on US network television. Meanwhile I love that True Blood scored a nomination – True Blood FTW! (I’d be rooting for Mad Men too, but it won this year.)

Best television musical or comedy
The Office
30 Rock

Out of all these comedies, I only watch 30 Rock regularly… so that’s what I’m backing. And I wish South Park had been included, because it’s been really awesome this last year. Also, I like Californication and all, but it does not belong in the “best comedy” category; it’s really about time that these awards committees added a “best dramedy” category for hybrids like this, Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, etc.

More after the jump. Continue reading

A cavalcade of bad hair [WTF?]

Posted in Dexter, North Americana, WTF? on November 20, 2008 by jetsamjr

I know it’s Movember and all, but… this is inexcusable:

And if you thought that was the worst hair you’d see all day, you were wrong. Behold:

Criminal Minds

Yes, that’s Jason Alexander. Joe Mantegna looks rightfully disgusted.

“Trimmed trees! The skinner’s been here!” [Dexter – The Damage a Man Can Do]

… is the worst line I have ever heard in any episode of Dexter, ever. Since when do the characters on this show need to speak out loud for the benefit of dumb viewers? Continue reading

Unflattering moments in television [hee!]

Posted in 30 Rock, Dexter, Fringe, Gossip Girl, hee!, North Americana on November 5, 2008 by jetsamjr

During my involuntary hiatus from the internet (I moved house and had to wait for it to be reconnected. Two weeks of torture, I tells ya) I watched what TV I could on my computer, and noticed that I have an uncanny knack for pausing videos just as the actors depicted in them are caught in between facial expressions. The results are deeply unflattering:

Yes, I was bored without internet.

Jews are weird [Dexter]

Posted in Dexter, hee!, North Americana, video on October 12, 2008 by jetsamjr

The opening credits of “Dessler” parody Dexter‘s sublime title sequence, replacing Dexter’s “normal” morning routine with the very involved daily preparations of an Orthodox Jew. Conclusion: Jews are weird (but not as weird as serial killers, granted).

Season three sneak peek [Dexter]

Heads up to all those who’ve been waiting a long time to see TV’s favourite serial killer back in line: the first episode of Dexter‘s third season has been leaked online, if by “leaked” you mean “deliberately released by Showtime to create buzz”.
