TV, What Else?

My mother and her TV Guide subscription informs me that Hugh Laurie will be hosting SNL on 10/28. Damn, they found a way to get me to watch. If only he had time to write his own material.

In today’s ‘Ask Ausiello’ someone asked a question about Lee and Laura. Just the fact that someone not in my little corner of LJ asked about them made me very happy. Yes, I need help.

Studio 60 got beaten, badly, in the ratings by What About Brian. And danceswithwords thought she saw something about it being moved to Friday nights. Yeah, that’s not looking good.

The first few minutes had me worried. How did Randall not see Felicia? Or the phone sliding around the floor? It was quite ridiculous. But once we got past that bit of contrived TV drama and I loved this episode. There were so many great character moments. Franny sliding Egan his glasses - a gesture of kindness under extreme circumstances. Lizzie and Kathryn’s quick, yet utterly believable given wht they have been through together, friendship. Kathryn realizing, as Egan has, that there is something more to be had out of life. Admitting that she had an abortion at age 27 was not a surprise, but that it was done in the third episode of a network television series was. The scene between Felicia and Malcolm was amazing in that neither was right nor wrong and I could see both sides. What loving parent doesn’t want to protect their child from more pain? Yet, if Felicia doesn’t learn the truth she’ll never get past this experience. And I actually felt a little sorry for Jeremy. He just seems so lost right now. I hope for his sake and Lucas’s that Randall survives, but it’s not looking good.

The show is also doing an excellent job of bringing these characters back into each others lives. All their meetings seem very natural and important to progressing the story.

Caught the very end of Project Runway. When I saw photos from the runway shows several weeks ago the winner’s designs seemed the strongest as well as having a distinctive theme so no surprise there for me.
