Gilmore Girls vs. Gossip Girl: One and the Same?

<I>Gilmore Girls</I> vs. <I>Gossip Girl</I>: One and the Same?

The recent "let's visit Yale so we can all go there together when we graduate" trip on Gossip Girl got the old wheels a-turning in my head, and I was like, "Just like how Rory and Paris both ended up at Yale back in the day!" So very convenient that two headstrong girls who have ideas about where they want to go and the ability to get into any number of Ivy League schools wind up together, and as roommates. Same goes for Serena and Blair, and the rest of the gang, all of whom could use their prep school backgrounds to have their pick of the Ivys, and who all decide to check out Yale together. It's just very TV-friendly, and an easy way to keep the cast together. And while Blair and Serena's fights will likely be over boys and not who is going to be editor-in-chief of the school paper, it made me realize the amount of other similarities this show has to my poor beloved departed Gilmore Girls.

The Resurrection of Michigan J. Frog (and The WB)

The Resurrection of Michigan J. Frog (and The WB)

Given its blatant catering to the youth of America, I was always stunned by the WB's use of Michigan J. Frog as their mascot. The (then) 40-year-old cartoon character was most famous for belting out old-timey music like "Hello My Baby" and "The Michigan Rag," and was not at all as well-known as the rest of the Looney Tunes stable... and probably the only one not already licensed out to a T-shirt company, which is likely why Warner Bros. chose him. Of course, since the network's demise in 2005, no one has seen hide nor hair of him, so I'm curious if he'll make a comeback now that The WB has resurfaced as a website, The, where you can watch all of your favorite WB (and Warner-produced) shows. Somehow I doubt it.

<i>Parenthood</i>: This Week’s Chuckle, Cry and Cringe

Welcome back to Parenthood! It's been so long since this show was last on, and now Sarah and Hank have a beautiful six-year-old girl together! Seriously, though, it's nice to have our show back, and so much time has passed that I wasn't even sick of Kristina's storyline at first.

<i>Parenthood</i>: This Week’s Chuckle, Cry and Cringe

I was really impressed with last night's "The Talk." The episode wasn't great, but it did cover the N-word, our society's treatment of veterans, autism, bullying, breast cancer, adoption and the big Team Peeta vs. Team Gale Hunger Games divide -- not bad for a 40-odd-minute primetime family drama. I think Parenthood is laying it on a little too thick so far this season (with not nearly enough Camille or Amber, might I add), but given the fact that the episode ended with Adam making Kristina move up her surgery date, I don't have that much to complain about right now, so let's get to the nitty-gritty.

TWoP 10 Most Annoying TV Characters

TWoP 10 Most Annoying TV Characters Evangeline Lilly had the nerve recently to ask for more money per episode on her Lost contract, even though she makes more than anyone else on the show (except Matthew Fox) and even though her character Kate is by far the most irritating character on that show by a landslide. This prompted me to think back over my years of TV-watching to compile the list of most unduly annoying characters to ever exist on the small screen.
