TV Time: Nate & Serena Finally Go At It Guilt-Free; Teddy Needs to Man up With Silver and WTF Skins?

[Gossip Girl Fan]
With Gossip Girl and 90210 returning this week, there was so much television to watch and get into. I'm glad to have the focus on Gossip Girl get back to the 'non-judgmental breakfast club' just because that's how it's supposed to be and 90210, I just missed just because it's been pretty darn good. Now if only Bones and Glee would come back already, TV land would be perfection.

Gossip Girl 03x13: The Hurt Locket


If that's not Chuck's mom, I don't know who they could get to portray her because they freaking look alike. I'm glad Blair ended up 'giving up what she wanted' to support Chuck. Because really, how many secret societies could she possibly want to get into?! I'm not too fond of the direction they're giving Blair's character. I know they've established her need to feel powerful but I feel she can do this on her own and without joining whatever secret society.


I'm glad Nate/Serena finally hooked up. So much for taking it slow right? Though I didn't hate Jenny in this episode, the pill-jacket was hilarious and I wish Serena would have found out. But I'm just so happy with them getting together and finally making all that pretty worthy of watching that I'll let their seriously lame-o fights slide.

Chuck 03x09: Chuck Versus the Beard


Boy am I glad Morgan knows. So it leaves Ellie in the dark and the only one at that, but at least nothing can come in between Morgan and Chuck now. I'm just glad Chuck has someone else to talk to now other than Awesome cause clearly, dude can't tell lies. The dude from Bones (Booth's boss) was funny as a Ring operative and I wish they'd take the Ring down already. And what's up with Casey getting that call?! I'm hoping he's not a double agent.

90210 02x13: Rats and Heroes


Too bad Naomi and Liam have zero chemistry away from the bed. I feel bad for Ivy, Liam and Naomi cause they're all just going to end up hurt. I hope things go better for Liam/Naomi. As well as Silver/Teddy. I like you Dixon, but just NOT with Silver. Silver and Teddy could really work well if only it happened.

And poor Annie. Now she's really stuck in a bad romance. Sorry Navid, your plan was fail. I hope Navid doesn't get into too much trouble though. And though I know Adrianna isn't a lesbian, I hope Rumer Willis knows this. Just saying. You're right, petitecherie, I definitely enjoyed!

Skins 04x09: Effy


Like everyone else, my mind is blown. So many great moments were eclipsed by the ending which I felt was incredibly unnecessary considering the shit Freddie and Effy and Cook have had to go through. Writers, you guys just fail on all accounts. I know Kaya has confirmed it and whatever, but a little part of me is still hoping and praying Freddie ain't dead.


Meanwhile, I am shocked next week is the finale. There's too much to wrap up if indeed Freddie is dead. maybe were talking about this and there's just so much going on right now for it to all end properly. I hope they do it right because as it is, this season was one big disjointed mess. I don't know if I'll still be around for Generation 3, much more the US version. God help us.

American Idol 9: Top 16

Idol, you are a drug to me. I literally blipped through the entire two episodes and couldn't care less about the Top 12. However, if you do want to join me in my lame-ass predictions game (genrocks won last year with the most correct predictions), just answer this first poll and I'll include you. Here's to guessing a lot this year.

In my perfect world, Lilly and Katelyn would not have gotten the boot. Their takes on I Fall to Pieces and I Feel the Earth Move were both Top 12 worthy. Suck on that Paige and Katie. Oh well. However, the rest of the girls did bring it. Crystal Bowersox did amazingly on Give Me One Reason and they're pimping this for the win. I loved Lacey Brown's The Story as well. Best performance she's had for sure.

Didi Benami doesn't disappoint with her Fleetwood Mac cover of a song I've never heard. I do feel a bit annoyed at Siobhan Magnus. GIrl has got amazing pipes. I just wish she'd work on songs that were more 'accessible' to folks. I'm not saying her risky song choices aren't paying off, nor am I telling her to go Britney, but a little more Idol-like would be good. She's amazing though.

I see the judges are really setting the boys up for failure. I get the Todrick kick out. But Alex?! Really?! I liked his take on Trouble A LOT. I also feel bad for Andrew Garcia just because expectations are too high. And yes I get he was in his comfort zone but I thought he did well. Casey James well, was the best for me. He looked really sincere with that song and miles from the others. Tim Urban was pretty good as well with Hallelujah.

And though I like Michael. I do NOT UNDERSTAND why Kara started crying. Yes he was good, but he didn't blow me away. At all. I don't get it. Really. Sorry Michael. You were good. Just not worth crying over.
