TV.com's Swell-o-vision vs. Hell-o-vision (April 15)
Here's what we thought was out of sight and just not right on television this week.
... Parks and Rec's surprise nuptials
Congratulations, April and Andy!
... Norm MacDonald + Blake Griffin = Comedy
What are the odds that one of Tim's favorite comedians would pair up with the star of his favorite basketball team for a skit that is hilarious? (Apparently 100 percent.)
... Syfy's Being Human's successful first season
Our fears of the show being a vastly inferior adaptation of the original were sucked dry by fantastic writing, acting, and production.
... The last scene of The Good Wife, in which—spoiler alert!—
Alicia learned that Peter slept with Kalinda.
... Gay stereotypes being CRUSHED on Happy Endings
Alex is a beer-drinking, sports-watching, non-lispy regular dude who just so happens to like having sex with men.
... Alexandria on America's Next Top Model
Usually the contestant all the other girls hate is the kind of person we love to hate, but she's just coming off as the kind of girl we hate to hate because we just plain hate her.
... Modern Family's product placement
Are we watching an episode of our favorite comedy or are we at the local Toyota lot?
... Community's Troy subplot
The acting class was funny, but his lies about being molested by his uncle were a bit tasteless.
... Stupid Royal-Wedding-themed programming
Sorry Brits, royal family hoopla is only a step above The Hills. And the Food Network has enough shows about cake as it is.
... The return of Paul Reiser
We don't know where he's been, but we strongly recommend he goes back there.
... CBS's announcement of a new summer reality show called Same Name
It sounds like the reality spawn of Arrested Development's George Michael Bluth and Office Space's Michael Bolton—and David Hasselhoff is the star of Episode 1.
What made your list of TV loves and hates this week?
