1.) 'FlashForward' gets awesome: I was still dubious about this new ensemble drama until I saw this week's episode. "OMG" doesn't even begin to cover it. I laughed, I cried, I gasped, and I loved every minute of it. Gotta say, I think one of the reasons I liked this week's ep so much was because it didn't focus so much on the semi-boring Joseph Fiennes/Sonya Walger "I'm-mad-because-you-cheat-on-me-in-the-future" story line and instead we got to see more of the adorably troubled John Cho and Lee Thompson Young's biceps. The scene where he's cooking in just a wife beater made the episode for me. And made me want to run out and buy every season of 'The Famous Jett Jackson.'
2.) Megan Mullally on 'Parks & Recreation': The former 'Will & Grace' star (you know, the one with the really high-pitched voice and the drinking problem? On the show, I mean) made a hilarious guest appearance as Ron's manipulative ex-wife on this week's episode. Even funnier than the love/hate relationship between her and Ron was the intensely hostile rivalry between the parks department and the library department. Also, this quote: "Is part of your mustache missing?"
3.) 'Glee' soundtrack, volume one: This week the first album of songs from 'Glee' was released. Fox will celebrate by swimming around in a pool of money à la Scrooge McDuck. They deserve to revel in their victory after finding a way to make oodles and oodles of money without giving a shit about ratings while simultaneously making a show that is actually good. Also, why didn't anyone tell about the song "Defying Gravity" from Wicked? Come on, people. It's your job to keep me posted on these things. That song is awesome, and I am only just now being introduced to it.
4.) Fabio and Stefan reunite on 'Top Chef: All-Stars Dinner,' rekindle their adorable European bromance: Chaos ensues. Note to Bravo: Too much of that mean redheaded chick and Hung, not enough Fabio and Stefan lovin'. Also, Bravo, I have a suggestion for a new show: a dating show starring Stefan and a group of ten or twenty lesbians. (He certainly seems to have a type, and they are sadly not into men.) I would watch. Oh, and next time there's a reunion special, don't invite the whiney, foam-obsessed Marcel. He's annoying and creepy
5.) The series premiere of 'V': Aliens are invading your television! But it's okay- they're all attractive. Phew. Not having seen the original 'V' from the 80s (I know, I'm a terrible person, but I wasn't born yet so cry me a river) I can't make a comparison to the reboot, but I was pretty impressed with it, and even more impressed that people actually watched it (14 million people, to be precise). I'm used to getting sucked into sci-fi shows only to have them prematurely cancelled with little or no closure (cough, 'Firefly,' cough), so I am still in a state of shock over the success of 'V.' Although, I can't help but worry that 'V' is going down the same path as 'Firefly' seeing as *SPOILER* they totally killed off Alan Tudyk in the pilot, which 'Firefly' at least waited a season to do. *END OF SPOILER ALERT*
