So You Think You Can Dance: PottyMouth
On last night’s So You Think You Can Dance, I was hoping against hope that a certain someone would get booted out the door. Unfortunately, that person is still around. Now I’m cranky.
We also continued the tradition of lame musical guests, although at least this one had SYTYCD all stars as her backup dancers. Guess which ass kisser was in the group? How did you guess? Can someone please give HER the night off? PLEASE????
We also got a pretty cool dance number with Brian Gaynor returning with his crew. I really do love what this guy does, and his crew was fabulous too!
In the end, we had to lose one more dancer. Who was it? You know I’m not telling! You have to come back later for the full recap. Silly. There we can discuss annoying people who get to stay on the show, lip syncing as an art form, and the blind seamstresses employed to make Cat’s dress. See you there!
Channel Surfing: Chooch
Definitely not for the weak of heart. This is an 8-episode documentary-style reality show, on ABC, which revolves around 3 hospitals in Boston, thus the name. I watched two women, my age, each with a lung disease (similar to my own) wait & then receive a lung from the same donor. The surgeon doing the “harvesting” & one of the transplants, was totally psyched, like he was being sent onto the field for the big game. Both women left the hospital with smiles on their faces, so he scored a big one. We got to see a newbie resident doctor, as she worked the ER & didn’t get things quite right when she attempted intubation. When she’s called to the dialysis unit for a patient who’s coded, she has the same problem with putting in a breathing tube. That patient died. Reminded me of the days of Dr. Carter. Another case involved a police officer shot in the face. The bullet when thru both his wrists, as he tried to block it. In this incident, the officer suffered a broken jaw bone which was successfully reconstructed. Three stories, three hospitals…. Can I or will I watch this again? It’s not my kind of show. I like fake blood better.
I find it very hard to believe that rookies, graduating from the police academy, are all that perfect looking. This is what ABC expects us to believe! These six newbies are beautiful. Three girls, one blonde flirt, one brunette “prove herself” type & a black “bleeding heart & I have a kid & from the neighborhood” type. Three guys, one “by the book” type, one “street smart & handsome” type & I don’t even remember the last guy, except that he was perfect too. It was their first day & everything went wrong for each of them. The veterans, who have to partner with them, pray for their own safety. The “prove herself” brunette, after blowing an undercover cop’s cover, gets the bad guy in the end, thus proving herself. If you’re looking for a gritty cop show, this ain’t it. Will I watch again? Yeh, I didn’t fall asleep.
TNT is “all about drama” & this is their newest edition. “My Name is Earl”s Jason Lee is the star of this new cop show. He’s a detective for the Memphis PD, just like his daddy was. Daddy died in the line of duty, when he was just a youngun. Elvis helped him thru the hard times with his songs. (my eyes are rolling) Earl, I mean, Dwight even sings at the local bar, just like Elvis… imagine that! (Jason Lee admits it’s not him singing, but a dub).
Alfre Woodard plays his new boss, who he pays no attention to at all. I guess this is suppose to create a love/hate tension between the two, but IMO, they have no chemistry of any kind. The two are all wrong for each other & their scenes together fall flat. It’s like “who cares”. He has alot of interesting characters around him. DJ Qualls (that goofy dude from the movie “The New Kid”) is the rookie cop who’s always around. Abraham Benrubi (Jerry, the receptionist from ER) is the desk sargeant & has pigtails just like Willie Nelson. I think he’s playing an American Indian… maybe, don’t quote me. The episode was about an old lady who was found wandering the streets & she doesn’t speak. Earl/Dwight figures out she’s a famous radio personality of Memphis past. She’s been abused & he sets out to find out who did it & he does, after stacking out in a treehouse with the little neighbor girl & playing dolls. He NEVER lets us forget he’s all about Memphis. If you played a drinking contest for everytime he said Memphis, you’d be drunk in the first half hour. Will I watch again? Not for all the Elvis dudes in Memphis… drink!
