Samantha Who: Season 1

If you are buying this DVD set (available today), I certainly hope that you are buying it because you just adored the show. Of you have amnesia and have forgotten that DVD sets usually have many more extras than this. Because otherwise there's a good chance you'll be disappointed.

Don't get me wrong, the show is adorable. It stars Christina Applegate as Samantha (or Sam to her friends) a thirtysomething who has been in a car accident, lost her memory and discovered that before the crash she was a total bitch. Now she's trying to rectify her ways, but flashes of bitchiness come through when she least expects it. The supporting cast is cute, featuring Jean Smart (in her now Emmy-winning role), Barry Watson (mmmm....) Melissa McCarthy (who will always be Sookie to me) and Jennifer Esposito, and really round out this series, making it more tolerable than it sounds on paper. Funny even. Most of the time

Sookie Soars on Samantha Who?

Sookie Soars on <I>Samantha Who?</I> Before Samantha Who? signs off after its first season tonight, I thought I'd take a minute to heap some praise on the wonder that is Sookie. (Yeah, I know her character here is Dena, but she'll always be Sookie to me). She absolutely hands down is what makes this show one of the funnier new arrivals this season. Samantha? Well, she's suffering some brain issues so is very conflicted and sometimes amusing but often achingly awkward. Andrea, she's just bitchy. But Sookie, ah sweet Melissa McCarthy, has brought such depth and dimension to a character that could be kind of one note that I've found myself caught up under her spell.

Buster's Back With a Vengance

Tony Hale is moving up in the world. He's gone from a one-handed mama's boy to the go-to guy for recurring roles on sitcoms. The hot property (never thought we'd be using those words to describe the erstwhile Buster Bluth) has just landed not one, but two gigs this fall on this season's frosh hits, Chuck and Samantha Who?. To say that I'm personally delighted to see him getting some recognition is an understatement. I love it when my favorite character actors get new roles on actual TV shows instead of say poor Wallace from my beloved Veronica Mars who has been relegated to doing Orbit commercials.
