When VM used to air after ANTM, once a year they'd give away a cameo on VM to that week's challenge winner.


This year it was a cameo on One Tree Hill.

In other news, I hate everything.

Shit, man, it probably raised the level of acting on OTH.

OTH didn't get it's back 9 eps picked up either, but they got 8 opposed to VM's 7.  

If OTH gets renewed again, that awful, awful show will have the dubious distinction of having killed of both the greatest *family* TV drama of all time, and the second greatest teen TV drama of all time.

Evil or Very Mad And somewhere, the Hold Steady is recording an entire album of songs that are making fun of Elliott Smith or something.

Welcome to the world of the sane. Just ahead of you is the fourth series, get ready to be staggered and amazed, and television reaching it's pinnacle.

milly, se. 3 was probably my favorite as well (even though I missed D'Angelo). But everything Wally said is true: se.4 is like getting punched in the side of the head. It's brutal, man, and better than anything else on television.

Hey, has anyone watched Showtime's Dexter with David from SFU? I just read a pretty glowing review of it in last week's New Yorker. Sounded pretty interesting. Also sounded like it had a lot of potential to get hammy and fall flat ala Weeds.

wait, ok, who was this in season one (i still haven't seen season two, so if you tell me the one for that season it won't mean anything to me)?

also, i've got 3 episodes left to see in season 4 of "the wire", and yes, things are getting intense and crazy. i'm REALLY worried about randy right now. i'm also quite sure bad things are going to happen to herc, not that he doesn't deserve it. and i have come to really REALLY like carcetti. i'm disappointed that he's even considering the governor position. i'd really rather him do a full term as baltimore mayor. but i don't know, whatever, i guess that's politics. i just wish that politics was less about seeing how often you can get elected and more about seeing what you can do with the position you've been elected to in order to make things better. ohhhh well.

It's actually pretty good. Providing you can by the premise which is of a Patrick Bateman becomes avenging angel and lives in Miami where he helps solve crime with his little sister.

There's plenty of cheap hokum in it, but equally it's got a nice little groove in the darkly comic. After 6 episodes it could still go either way, but if they really sink their teeth into the main storyline it could turn out pretty grandly.

I was remembering wrong.  I forgot that, timewise, 2 seasons of ANTM = 1 season of VM.  Naima (fauxhawk ANTM winner) is in a couple VM episodes in Season 2; she plays the new journalism teacher, and actually has a mildly important role, plotwise, even though she has like 2 lines.

Kim (lesbian girl from ANTM) has a scene in the 7th or 8th ep of Season 2, where she plays a car rental agent opposite Joss Whedon, of all people, in his acting debut.  That scary-skinny Feronda girl is in a Season 2 episode as well.  I forget exactly, I think she plays a hostess at the Neptune Grand or something.

See, that is the problem. The concept of that show makes me really really uncomfortable. We're supposed to root for a guy who kills people? scuse me, ppl? Vengeance is vengeance, no matter if it's fictional vengeance or vengeance-that-is-supposed-to-reflect-the-darkest-part-of-the-human-soul or not. Maybe I am still just mad cause Wisconsin wants the death penalty back on the books, but I liked David better when he was having compulsive torrid extrarelationshipial affairs.

Also, when does Beaver show up in Big Love? Because I have the first disc and it is begging to be watched.

i mean, i don't think you're necessarily supposed to take it seriously. honestly, i think there's a great deal of black comedy to at least the book, if not the series.

I dunno who Beaver is, but you should definitely check out Big Love. I'm still pissed I haven't seen the last three episodes.

Beaver is a character from VM who did a guest stint on Big Love,

Mac from VM is a recurring character.  Tina Majorino AKA girl from Napoleon Dynamite.

It's really sad how much I know about TV shows, even ones I've never seen a single episode of.

I do not think it is sad, man. What's sad is that you still wish Riley ill, even after all these years.

Haha, my first need for an internets screenname coincided with the release of the S4 Dvds, so the hatred was fresh.  Now it's just 'me screenname.

Don't get me wrong though, I'd still give him a nice roundhouse to the crotch given a chance.

Yeah, anytime my hatred fades, I just think about that speech where he talks about how sometimes he just likes to drive, man, for fun, just the open road.

God, what a tool.

I've actually been watching this pretty regularly, and it's pretty good. Some of it is a bit over the top, but the dude is super convincing in his whole act. Also, I really like the whole crime scene/forensic drama stuff so yeah. I can't imagine it going any further than S1 though.

It's already been picked up for a second season, which is to be based on the second novel, apparently. I really, really like Michael C. Hall, though. His performance on SFU was what kept me watching through the third and fourth seasons, I think--even though I hated the character at times. He made David waaaaaay less insufferable than I think anyone else could have.
