Quote of the Week: I like it; it makes you sound like a comic book villain. So what’s the deal, why don’t you trust me Evan Chambers? (Cappie, Greek)
Song of the Week: Hello – Lionel Richie (as sung by Olive Snook; Pushing Daisies)
Big News of the Week: I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Returns: A couple months ago I interviewed John Lehr about his show 10 Items or Less and made sure to ask him about his stint as the host of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! And John basically ripped the show to shreds (click here to see the interview) and low and behold, about a month later NBC decided to resurrected the show.
I spent most of the week trying to avoid the show, but sadly caught a few minutes and feel worse for it. This go around seems to be the Heidi and Spencer show as in a week span they have quit the show multiple times and tried to come back both times in a sequence that seems as spontaneous as the Eminem/Bruno incident. The first time they used the befuddling excuse that their cast mates weren’t famous enough for them to hang with. Seriously, they are third from the bottom in terms of Q ratings on the show after the VH1 hosts and Blagoavich’s wife. And for those who want to know who was first to get the boot, check out the video below (now if you excuse me, I need to take a shower):
Coalition Links of the Week:
Buzz gathered up her favorite quotes from the TV season in a mega "Who Said That Line?" quiz. How many do you remember? (BuzzSugar)
This week, Sandie got a chance to interview Stephen Moyer who plays Bill on HBO's True Blood. (Daemon's TV)
Vance chats about the newly announced Season 5 Top 20 So You Think You Can Dance dancers with his new bsytycdff LowResJoe, TwoP Lauren S and ABChau. YAY! It's STARTING!!! (Tapeworthy)
This week, Jace offered advance reviews for the first six episodes of Showtime's Nurse Jackie and the first three episodes of Weeds and reviewed the pilots for CW's Melrose Place and ABC's The Middle. (Televisionary)
Pushing Daisies: It is really weird watching this episode after such a long layoff. It almost too me the whole episode to get back into the world of Ned the Piemaker. Or at least it took until Olive broke out singing. You can stream current episodes over at ABC.com.
Greek: I could see why Cappie and Evan would fight over Casey, but the chick from their secret society? Not so much. You can stream current episodes over at ABCFamily.com. You can also download Greek on iTunes.
Rescue Me: I think I missed the boat on Conner, I guess it is a hallucination so anything goes, but I don’t get why he is so old and why and how he has a kid. And Tommy is back to shacking up with two woman again. Must be nice to star in a show you produce. You can stream current episodes over at Hulu.
Free Download of the Week: Sugarfoot – Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears (Amazon MP3) – If they handed out awards for most infectious songs, this song would definitely snag it for 2009. And not only can you grab Sugarfoot for free at Amazon MP3, you can also grab the video on iTunes, just click the banner at right (if the picture isn’t of Black Joe Lewis, you are too late).
Deal of the Week: Save up to 44% in the June DVD Blowout Sale (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Arrested Development, Wonderfalls)
Video of the Week: Last night was the second season premiere of Whale Wars on Animal Planet with The Sea Shepherd crew continuing their fight against Japanese whaling. If you missed it, here is a sneak peak at the new season:
Next Week Pick of the Week: Pushing Daisies, Saturday at 10:00 on ABC: The show just returned last week and just like that, the series finale is next week. Here’s hoping for a satisfying ending.
