It was an awesome week for women at the Olympics this week.
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 really watched much more than the Olympics and don’t feel bad about it at all. My DVR on the other hand is getting really full and a little sad I have been neglecting it this week too.
There is so much good this week. The women’s soccer team won gold! Aly Raisman won gold, the women’s water polo team won gold, my favorite beach volleyball team won gold (love you Misty and Kerri), and to top it off the amazing Clarissa Shields won the first gold medal in women’s olympic Boxing at 17.
When I talk about The Bad this week I really just want to mention Michael Jackson and the awesome bathing suits worn by the Russian synchronized swimming team.
When I talk about The UGLY this week I really mean GOOD. Specifically, I want to mention my favorite ladies and their unforgettable faces.
The first is our favorite unimpressed Olympian Mckayla Maroney and the ever present http://mckaylaisnotimpressed.tumblr.com/
In fierce competition with Mckayla’s facial expressions is, of course, Russian gymnast Aliya Mustafina.
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.
