<I>Hellcats</I>: Did Zombies Make This Show Better?

The short answer to that question is yes. Zombies make everything better. But unfortunately this week's episode of Hellcats was only good during the course of the zombie movie, and the rest of it was an awkward disaster. It's a secret shame of mine that I've been watching this show since the beginning, but n my defense, it's an awful trainwreck that I just can't take my eyes off of. The show's about a cheerleading law student who gets people out of jail and gets laws overturned, but who loves wearing half-shirts and appears to spend the majority of her time in a bar obsessing over boys instead of studying. In other words, it's mesmerizingly absurd and I was hoping that the addition of zombies would push the preposterousness into full-on guilty pleasure mode. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.

TWoP 10: Characters We're Most Happy to Be Free Of

With another Fourth of July upon us, it's time to celebrate our freedom, and for us TV junkies, that means freedom from crappy shows and, more specifically, certain awful characters. Some of these people were on blissfully canceled shows, while others were recently ousted from halfway decent programs. Let's toast our independence from these most dreadful creations:

It's that time of year again, when one person's (or network's) trash can become another's treasure. But instead of taking our chances on a Yankee swap of some of TV's most interesting characters, we're just going ahead and repackaging these folks and shipping them off to new homes where they might actually be appreciated.

The CW: Action, Hot & Cold Girls and Something to Cheer About

It was hard to concentrate at The CW's 2010-11 upfront presentation because I was still riding high from the news that next year will be the final season of Smallville and and that One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected will move to Tuesdays, which means that I can ignore the network entirely on that evening. I was jolted out of my reverie by Katy Perry on stage, screaming about being hot and cold and daisy dukes and whatnot. Glad I perked up, though, because it was just in time to see her wig nearly slip off. I also got to check out her signature "dance" move: inching her skirt up while walking. You don't see technique like that on So You Think You Can Dance, that's for sure. As for the actual upfront, it was short and to the point, marred only by some awkward banter between stars of different shows airing on the same nights (Chace Crawford and AnneLynne McCord should never have to read live from a Teleprompter ever again). As for The CW's two new fall shows... well, at least they have pretty people in them.
