´╗┐Mark Paul Gosselaar Gets NAKED! See the PITCH Photos Now

Written by , Posted in General

FOX’s new show ‘Pitch’ about the first female Major League Baseball pitcher is the perfect show for today’s climate, and they took things to a new level with one of the most genius marketing moves yet. The cast got naked! In response to a storyline about how their star player’s naked photos from her ex-boyfriend’s computer would be released to the masses, her team united with their own, approved naked photos to take the heat out of the story. That plan works in real life too, because who doesn’t want to see Mark Paul Gosselaar naked? See the delightful photos below.

American Idol Does Hollywood — Ratings Climb

Written by , Posted in General

American Idol is up in the ratings, and all the credit goes to the current judging panel, who traded the word “pitchy” for a vocabulary full of other critiques, with Harry Connick Jr. leading the pack. When one contestant asked for a reason he got axed, Connick clarified Jennifer Lopez’s very generic feedback to explain how the contestant, “Looked at the floor the entire time.” As for another group who felt they killed it, Connick squashed their hubris with a very heated critique, explaining that ‘Say My Name’ by Destiny’s Child has “no melody.” Ouch! I wonder what Beyonce will say. Watch a few of my favorite moments below.

FOX’S The Following — A FULL REVIEW

Written by , Posted in General

20130325-105901.jpgIf the premise of your show is to hire an expert to capture the villain (see Kevin Bacon), then wouldn’t it stand to reason that the expert has some level of expertise? After eight episodes of Fox’s show, The Following, I have yet to see any star detective work. In fact, this psychopathic serial killer is so stellar, the FBI hasn’t squashed a single one of his plans. They’re always several minutes too late and 5 bodies behind.

My patience has a shelf-life, so perhaps FOX can commission CBS’s ‘Elementary’ writers about how to execute some level of inside-knowledge so as to prop-up the protagonist. What is the purpose of Kevin Bacon’s character other than to serve as bait for the serial killer who clearly enjoys the chase? In fact, perhaps if he was entirely out of the picture, the killer would just get bored and retire.

I’ve officially decided to retire from the show. I have no interest in watching endless episodes about how our government can’t get it together, with a protagonist that’s on the last legs of his pacemaker and can’t get one step ahead to save his life.

There’s a lesson to be learned here, so I’d like the writer’s room to listen up. Here goes: Light and shade, my friends. The darkness gets dreary after awhile.
