I did my best to make this week’s episode shorter by not watching everything I was supposed to, but it didn’t help. Sorry. I’ll just try to make this post brief to compensate.
So we had listener requests to honor (hence Iron Chef America), plus another extended episode of Top Chef (this time, at least, it was the first half of the finale). Gilmore Girls, Prison Break and Heroes all returned, in that order of triumph. And it seems we’ve actually added Beauty & the Geek to the roster—officially. There’s also more 24, The Apprentice, Brothers & Sisters, Friday Night Lights, How I Met Your Mother and The Class. The discussion on those last two turns into a bit of a debate about the merits of humor based on pop culture references—all you I Love the Whatevers fans should stick around for that part, I guess. Finally, Shooting Sizemore attempts a sort of sunny episode, though the prospect of Tom in jail haunts all of us. I mean, they won’t be able to film the show if he’s locked up, right?
