Britney Spears is unsure of what is happening in front of her, but I watched it anyway.
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly dives right into the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of television each week. Still unsure what this column is about: The Good will focus on the best thing on TV this week, The Bad will explore the worst thing, and The Ugly will vary from week to week, but it’s usually serving up the hottest of hot messes allowed to hit our TV screens.
I haven’t watched the season premiere of Parks and Rec yet (my bad), but I did absolutely love last night’s episode of Louie; It was the final part of his three part Late Show trilogy. I really liked how the AV Club summed up their review so I’ll simply give that to you here:
That’s the thing about having a dream, though, even if it’s one that lands on your head from out of nowhere. In all likelihood, that dream is going to be taken away from you. Not everybody can grow up to win the Super Bowl or host a late-night talk show. The world has room for only a few of those who truly get what they want. If it didn’t, then dreaming would be pointless. The value, on Louie and in life, is in the attempt, and when Louie stops outside of the Ed Sullivan Theater and flips it off while yelling at David Letterman, it’s all the victory we need. The universe got him to care, and David Letterman fucked him over. But at the same time, Louie got some weird gift out of the whole experience. He steps back into the ring, but now, he’s not the one getting pummeled. Slowly but surely, he’s learning to stand up and take his own licks.
Mob Doctor is no My Boys (they both star Jordan Spiro). I just couldn’t with Mob Doctor and it’s too bad cause the cast is pretty decent.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I relish the many faces of Britney Spears as a judge on The X Factor. Here are a few of my faves (all via):
When he’s not discussing what he watched last night on television with his cats, Steven is a freelance writer and blogger from Boston. He writes about television at TV Hangover and blogs about really important stuff like pizza and feelings at his blog. He also tweets from the bathroom while his children are playing video games.
