  • They weren’t singing out of context. (No singing in a park, no singing in a hospital, no singing in a drug-induced nap.) Just singing on stage and in the music room. Finally.
  • The plot guided the music. I was seriously beginning to doubt they had it in ’em. And no silly theme to try and work around.
  • Like it or not, some of these kids can really sing. This episode finally let them do just that without sounding too auto-tuney. (Chris Colfer continues to shine!)
  • And even though they hated on it, they mentioned Grease 2 tonight. I frickin’ love that movie.

Hopefully we get more episodes like this in the future. If we do, I’ll keep Glee on the DVR. Thin ice though.

This is the biggest week in edubTV history. To whoever is coming to this blog (it’s actually a lot of folks looking for Lauren Graham pics…awkward) thanks! On to the updates.

  • Big Love is totally wonderful this season and I’m loving it even more now that HBO isn’t backing down from LDS. Turns out they’re stepping on some pretty big-name toes in the Mormon community.
  • Anything involving Jason Bateman and Will Arnett will probably end up on my DVD rack. This viral video is doing wonders for their new show Sit Down, Shut Up.
  • Another internship for you in the TV industry, this time at the Travel Channel.
  • And finally, my favorite non-TV related link of the week: Bad Paintings of Barack Obama. Keep refreshing the page for some real gems. Some of these people needed to hear, “No, you can’t.”

Yes, I know it’s Tuesday. However, tomorrow is Christmas Eve and I will be half drunk and eating Italian food at the neighbors’, therefore, no time to talk TV. Let’s go ahead and dish now.

  • Diane Sawyer almost lost her shit this morning on Good Morning America over…well…baby shit.
  • So apparently not everyone was pleased with last night’s Prison Break fall finale. I will sit through every episode of PB if it means I get to watch Lincoln bash the heads of random innocents he mistakes for criminals
  • Entertainment Weekly declared The Colbert Report the best show on television this year. Funny? Sure. But the best?
  • So Jenny dies on The L Word next season. The jig is up. The mystery now is who the culprit is.  My vote? Every single person who watches The L Word.

I’m watching A Charlie Brown Christmas. Everytime I watch this, I think about having a son and naming him Linus.

Lucy: You think you’re so smart with that blanket. What are you gonna do with it when you grow up?

Linus: Maybe I’ll make it into a sportcoat.

You tell her Linus! Don’t let anyone change you.

On to the updates.

  • This guy guessed the EXACT PRICE of his Showcase on the Price Is Right today. The exact price folks. It hasn’t happened since 1972. Despite this, Drew Carrey appeared unimpresed. Even the other contestant freaked out a bit. I think she was mad because on any other day she would’ve won by a landslide.
  • Britney Spears went Christmas Caroling with Ellen. It was pretty hilarious. I’m glad she’s keeping it together for those little ones of hers.
  • 27 years later, police have finally uncovered the mystery behind the murder of Adam Walsh, the  son of America’s Most Wanted host John Walsh. The murderer? Ottis Toole, a serial killer who died behind bars in 1996.
  • I love a good talk-show debate on gay marriage and boy have there been some good ones lately. Melissa Etheridge proverbially bitch slapped Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View today and Jon Stewart had a great discussion with  Mike Huckabee on The Daily Show last week.
  • Where do you find America’s teen sweethearts after dark? Hanging out with fans at a local sex toy shop. Stay tuned for High School Musical 4: F’ It, Let’s Just Have Sex Already.
  • And one more thing: Peter Falk (best known as Columbo) has Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Oh, and finally my Favorite Non-TV Related Link of the Week: Sporcle.com, officially the best time waster on the internet.

Marry: Christmas Specials

I am already knee deep in Christmas movies and since it’s after Thanksgiving I no longer have to hide my enthusiasm. This weekend I watched Elf, The Santa Clause, The Santa Clause 2, This Christmas, White Christmas, the holiday episodes of Monk, Psych, two Christmas eps of Will & Grace and a shitty Lifetime movie called Moonlight & Mistletoe. I am a junkie for anything with sleigh bells, a tree and holiday mishaps. This season couldn’t come soon enough. Want to know when all of your favorites ( and the crappy cheesy movies) will be on? Check out ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas line-up.

Bop: No Award This Week

I have a bookmarks folder labeled “Bop” where I file away links to my nominees for this award every week.   For one reason or another, no one rose to the top this time. It’s not every week I feel like making love to my TV set or a cast of characters. Maybe the holiday season got to me…or there just wasn’t any grope-worthy television this week.

Kill: The Folks Pricing DVDs at Fox

24:Redemption is on DVD this week. Not surprising. What is shocking? The sticker price. The two-hour TV movie is retailing for $19.99. Are you kidding me? A full season of 24 retails at around $30 – $40 bucks and you can usually find it on sale for even cheaper. (All six seasons are currently $19.99 each on Amazon right now). So where do the folks at Fox get off selling an 88 minute movie for $20? Ridiculous!

24 Redemption: Thoughts?

24dossierhaut

So I fell in love with Jack Bauer all over again tonight during Redemption, the 24 TV-movie. It was far from groundbreaking but it was nice to see America’s home-grown sueprhero in a new environment (a fictional country in Africa) and meet the cast of sinister characters we’re going to run into in season seven. Tonight’s two-hour movie definitely laid the ground work for what looks like a pretty rip-roaring good time.

And by good time, I mean pretty dangerous and scary. They’re already burying bodies in cement. Where do you go from there?

Anyone else watch tonight? Thoughts?

If you missed the special, no worries. You can buy the DVD on Tuesday. Nice work Fox.

Guess which politico just got cast in Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy spin-off, The Cleveland Show? Oh and the best part: she’s playing the matriarch of a family of bears that lives next door to Cleveland.

Give up?

It’s Arianna Huffington.

I’d like to think she has better things to do, but then again it’s probably a lot of coin for not a lot of work. You go girl.
