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.
MTV’s Awkward and FX’s Louie both had their premieres last night at the same time. These two shows, along with Breaking Bad’s premiere in about two weeks are my most anticipated summer TV shows.
Let’s take a look at some of my favorite scenes from last night’s episodes. First up Awkward.
Louie returned and the episode was just as good as any episode from last season. I am really excited for what this season has to offer and it was great to see Gaby Hoffman and Louie’s ex-wife.
This chart from Vulture is also required viewing:
I watched MTV’s Real World: St. Thomas for some reason. I still don’t know that reason.
I also watched one episode of Charlie Sheen’s new FX show Anger Management and that’s probably the most I will ever watch. The show is based on the 2003 Jack Nicholson movie of the same name. The idea that Charlie Sheen is an anger management therapist is about as believable as him being a jingle writer. If this show does well through its first 10 episode it is getting a 90 episode order which means this shit will get syndicated and we will be made to suffer through it for the foreseeable future.
