I hadn't really been inspired to post until I was emailed the link to this today: Jersey Shore transcripts as read by actors from Oscar Wilde's Importance of Being Earnest.
YOU'RE WELCOME. WHO SAYS PEOPLE NO LONGER MAKE GREAT ART?
I caught up on my shows in three days, though pretty much the only thing that aired during my absence was a bunch of reality shows. And The Good Wife, for some reason. My reactions, in short:
Top Chef Good. I'm glad Blaise won. Yes, he was cocky, but as long as you've got the skill to back it up, I'm okay with cocky. Speaking of which....
Survivor Rob Mariano, you evil genius! I want him to make it to the end so bad you don't even know (not least of all because I know my interest will fizzle out to nothing if he's ousted and I'm enjoying this season tons and tons). I think the key here is playing the immunity idol at the right moment.
Extreme Couponing I can't believe I'm watching a show about couponing. And enjoying it! Well, except for the people who say that their couponing skills are a gift from god and god wanted them to have all this free stuff, etc, etc. That's creepy as fuck. As is...
The Amazing Race Mallory's constant prayers: so over it. Every time she's not eliminated I cry a few bitter tears (sorry, but that means you have to go too, Gary).
And speaking of bitter tears, oh no, not the Cowboys! Sniff! I knew they wouldn't last and considering the way they've been sucking at travel this race I'm actually kind of amazed they lasted this long, but it's still heartwrenching to have to say goodbye to them.
Now, the Goths can leave anytime. Well, Kent can leave.
Hey, I know, why don't Vyxsin and Gary team up and leave their annoying team members by the wayside? That would work wonders for me. Especially since the Globetrotters can't be far behind the Cowboys.
Cougar Town I wouldn't mind if they spent entire episodes doing this:
Because that's just how entertaining these characters have become. Hey, remember when this show sucked for like the first five episodes? Thank god they got over that, right?
I can't believe there's only one more episode of The Good Wife left! And it's not for another two weeks! I watched the preview and OMG! <lj-cut text="Spoil yourself at will.> Peter! Moved to his own apartment! Actual repercussions and Alicia -- *gasp* -- NOT forgiving him for his swinish behavior! It's like Christmas in season finale form!
The one thing I feared about the whole Kalinda/Peter thing was that Alicia would put all the blame on Kalinda and forgive Peter again (I hate it when women blame the other woman instead of, you know, THE GUY WHO ACTUALLY MADE PROMISES TO THEM TO STAY FAITHFUL).
Of course, with Alicia I can totally understand her having issues with Kalinda now too, but at least in her case it will hopefully be grounded in the fact that Kalinda withheld this vital information that would have impacted her marriage and their friendship.
And yet, I can totally see why Kalinda wouldn't say anything. In the beginning there would be no reason. And in a new friendship there is such a thing as too much honesty. I think where Kalinda went wrong was when they whole thing floated up to the surface and instead of facing the music, she tried to bury it even further. Nothing good ever comes of that.
I just really hope that Kalinda and Alicia's friendship survives this storm. And that Peter and Alicia's marriage doesn't. </lj-cut>
