I like all of the shows on the above schedule, except: Nashville and Dallasare more the hubby’s choice, but I do enjoy mocking them.

I had high hopes for Red Band Society since I adore both My So-Called Life‘s Wilson Cruz and The Help‘s Octavia Spencer, but the pilot was like a horrid Scrubs/Glee mashup. I really hope Wilson and Octavia move to a Shonda show or The Good Wife, their immense dramatic talents are wasted in a limp comedy. Also, Dear ABC: a drama about an immortal doctor (Forever) does not need a bland cop love interest or a weekly police procedural case. More Highlander, less Castle please. Learn from New Amsterdam‘s mistakes.

My opinion of new shows changes at the drop of a hat (Extant went from an awesome pilot to a ridiculous series), so check back in coming weeks for deletions.

I tend to multi-task while the tv’s on, so very few shows get my full attention. Those few are: The Good Wife, The Goldbergs, Billy on the Street and Doctor Who.

The Dead Weather on Gotham

“Treat Me Like Your Mother” by The Dead Weather (Jack White & Alison Mosshart) was featured during the interrogation scene in the series premiere of Fox’s Batman prequel Gotham. The song is from The Dead Weather’s debut album, Horehound.

That Song in the Deliverance Creek Commercial…

The dark, somewhat industrial cover of Pat Benetar’s “Love is a Battlefield” in the commercial for Lifetime’s upcoming Nicholas Sparks-produced, Lauren Ambrose western Deliverance Creek is by Story of O (feat. Sara Skinner)….

Werner Herzog on Parks & Recreation

My fascination with and affection for Werner Herzog has taken a somewhat bizarre and very exciting turn. According to Flavorwire, the filmaker let it slip in a recent interview that he will appear on the upcoming season of Parks & Recreation as an old man selling his house to move to Disney World.

Fave TV Comedy #1: Billy on the Street

We in the Muruch household have been meaning to post about our two fave tv comedies: Billy on the Street and Drunk History.

Billy on the Street began on Funny or Die and now airs on the Fuse channel. The show follows comedian Billy Eichner as he runs through the streets of NYC shouting and playing bizarre pop culture games with often confused bystanders and occasional guest celebrities.

My three fave scenes were 1) Billy’s rant about Cameron Diaz, in which he yells for her “to ruin more things!” 2) his “Lana Del Race for the Cure,” featuring several sleepy, disoriented models in Lana Del Ray costumes and 3) his “John Mayer or PepĂ© Le Pew?” game with Olivia Wilde…
