“According to the song, Rudolph’s nose is shiny, which means it reflects rather than emits light. Useless for navigating fog.” -Neil deGrasse Tyson (October 5, 1958; age 54)
Flipit has loosened the shackles and allowed me to do a weekend edition for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so I’m going to take advantage of it. Let’s get to it.
Friday, October 5
America’s Next Top Model (8PM, CW) The models are surprised by a photo shoot at their kitschy motel.
Kitschy is the nicest way I have ever heard someone describe Motel 6.
We’ll leave the black light on for you.
Fringe (9PM, FOX) The fringe team must extract information from the Harvard lab, which is now controlled by the Observers.
I’ve got just the crew for you.
Boss (9PM, Starz) Kane is forced to form a tenuous alliance with Alderman Ross.
The only time I’ve heard the term Alderman is Chris Rock’s character in “Head of State”. And now I remember that I’ve seen “Head of State”. Thanks a lot, caption.
Sunday, October 7
The Amazing Race (8PM, CBS) One team makes a bold but risky move.
“Should we run to the finish line?”
Revenge (9PM, ABC) Emily continues to delicately weave her way back into the Graysons’ lives while keeping her ties to Amanda and her unborn child.
“Why do you own an ultrasound machine and why do you keep trying to use it on me when I’m asleep?”
Boardwalk Empire (9PM, HBO) Mickey makes a critical decision in Nucky’s absence.
Fuck it, I’m going to tip the waiters.
Dexter (9PM, Showtime) Debra tries to cure Dexter of his killer tendencies.
No Dexter, that’s a bad Dexter.
Homeland (10PM, Showtime) Mike questions the nature of the events around the shooting of Elizabeth Gaines.
“There was a second shooter!”
666 Park Avenue (10PM, ABC) Henry decides whether to give Gavin inside information he has on one of his projects.
Don’t tell me what I can’t pursue
Treme (10PM, HBO) Janette, Aunt Mimi and Annie commit to new deals.
“Don’t we deserve more money?”
Deserve got nothing to do with it.
