You Win 90210 Spin-Off

Jessica Walter (Lucille Bluth of Arrested Development fame) is playing the role of a wealthy, alcoholic, former soap star on the new 90210 spin-off.

This news is a gift and a curse:

Gift: I will watch anything Jessica Walter touches.

Curse: The show isn’t a comedy so it will be hard watching her work within the confines of a teen drama. It’s kind of like forcing a chef to make you a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

I’m still watching tonight’s episode.

I have a couple things to say:

  • Why are people still voting for Jason Castro? If he’s still here next week, I’m through.
  • Apparently the folks over at Idol are contemplating how they can make the show better. My suggestion? More crazy Paula and less bad singing.
  • If David Cook can eek out an American Idol win, it will give this show the credibility it so desperately needs this season.

Back to suffering through the back end of tonight’s episode.

Like Hulu But For Teen Girls In The Late ’90s

Since being swallowed up by the CW, few have uttered the phrase “WB” in awhile. That changed today when Warner Brothers premiered the long awaited web site aptly dubbed, theWB.com.

What’s out there? Oh just freestreaming episodes of The OC, Gilmore Girls, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Friends, Smallville and more. The site will also house new original content from the WB.

Too good to be true? Unless you’re a beta tester, it is. But theWB.com will be up for the general public soon.

I hope they post those old 3 minute promos I used to love so much. I wanted to hang out with them sooooo bad!

Sleep with one eye open Hulu.

I’m assuming Justin and Rebecca will date once it comes out that she’s not a Walker. However, in real life, wouldn’t that be too much to overcome? Would the Walker family really let that relationship happen? Though they’re cute together and the audience likes them as siblings, how will America take to them being a couple?

Just thinking out-loud and readying myself for the potential awkward television that will be their relationship.

Any thoughts?

Welcome Back Everybody!

Tonight was my first busy night of television since before the Strike. ABC’s Thursday night line-up (Ugly Betty, Grey’s, Lost) premiered tonight and NBC tried out a new time-slot for 30 Rock. Both of these tidbits were great news for me, especially on the same night. The time slot switch made it possible for me to watch all of my shows in one sitting. It was like a new lane opening up on a busy highway.

Anyone else settle in for a night of superb comedies topped off by perplexing drama (thanks LOST)? It was really nice to have so many options again. Not only that, but the episodes were really well done. I’m officially back in the swing of things…

just in time for things with SAG to heat up. I won’t be able to take another strike. Hopefully it won’t come to that.

I’m going to sleep well tonight.

Best. Picture. Ever.

Thank you TV Addict for providing me with this giant photo of the 24 season 7 cast. Cue oggling.

The first things I noticed:

1. It’s nice Janeane Garofolo can turn shlubby on and off.
2. Where are the CTU agents/political figures of color?
3. Love the fact that Jack is the only one wearing jeans. You’d think he’d switch to tear-away pants by now for maximum flexibility.
