FTW vs. WTF: The TV Week in Review (November 18)

Let's start with some housekeeping: FTW vs. WTF will be taking next week off because we—your trusty TV.com editorial staff—will be stuffing our faces for four days in celebration of Thanksgiving. However, in it's place we'll be posting a call for submissions for our annual "Top 100 Everything" list of the best things about TV in 2012, which is basically a 365-day version of FTW minus the WTF. So keep an eye out for that.

Also, re: the you guys contributing to FTW vs. WTF idea that we asked you about last week, after the holiday we'll try posting an "open thread"-style story on Monday and linking to it in the "special features" section of the homepage, and you can post suggestions in the comments all week long and we'll see how that goes. Mmmkay?

And now let's talk about the best and worst televised happenings of the last seven days!


FTW



The first trailer for House of Cards


David Fincher brings his sleek aesthetics to Washington, D.C. in this political drama starring Kevin Spacey as a ruthless U.S. Congressman denied a top White House job. The trailer is full of scheming, bleak music and lighting, and ominous threats. We can't wait for it to hit Netflix in February.



The Mindy Project's game of gynecological chicken


Mindy and Danny's face-off over whether their existing relationship was impersonal enough that he could be her gynecologist was delightfully awkward and funny. Yeah, they're probably just heading down the same road as New Girl's Jess and Nick, but the journey not the destination or whatever. Congratulations on your victory, Beyonce Pad Thai!



Castiel's return to Supernatural


He's baaaaack. "The funniest angel in the garrison" made his formal return to Supernatural this week after spending most of Season 8 in flashback Hell... er, flashback Purgatory. He exchanged many meaningful glances with el Deano and finally ditched the gross-nasty scrubs he'd been rocking since zapping up Sam's cray cray last season. Plus, his return included added bonus Amanda Tapping. Speaking of which...



Supernatural: Now with Amanda Tapping


Stargate veteran Amanda Tapping is playing an angel named Naomi who claims to be the one behind Castiel's escape from Purgatory, and she's a total BAMF. Yeah, all we've seen her do so far is sit behind a desk and be smug, but c'mon, it's Amanda Tapping. Of COURSE she's going to be a BAMF.



Go On does multiplayer video games right


Several comedies last season portrayed dudes being dudes by playing Xbox Live. It was a fun new way to show dialogue between grown men, except it ended up being just guys staring at a TV, and it reeked of trying too hard. In this week's episode of Go On, Owen and Ryan were playing an older version of Halo, and in addition to seeing their mugs talking on headsets, we actually saw their avatars having a conversation, like those Red vs. Blue videos. It's the little things, you know?



Terrible gamer Conan O'Brien reviews the new Hitman game


The late-night host picked up the sticks and played through a few levels of the upcoming stealth, body-disposing assassination game in this very funny bit.



Overthinkingit.com's analysis of every Law & Order verdict ever


The site has plotted every outcome of every case from the show's twenty seasons in a series of charts and graphs. Check 'em out here.



Key & Peele's take on crying gangsters




The tao of New Girl's Nick Miller


Buzz all you want about Max Greenfield's work as uber-douche Schmidt, but these days, we're #TeamMiller all the way. As Nick's irrational rage and emotional stuntedness continues to develop (well, spiral out of control), New Girl keeps getting better. We didn't care for this week's detour into PMS territory—as you'll see below—but thankfully, the Miller Time thread kept things afloat (see what we did there? Because they were in a pool). His scenes with wise old Asian man Tran didn't deserve to be as funny as they were, but Jake Johnson's ability to humanize Nick while boiling over with anger and exasperation made it all work.



Rick is finally—and awesomely—losing his mind on The Walking Dead


In the past, The Walking Dead has glossed over the fact that unlike all the other characters in the main cast, Rick was tossed into the world of the zombie apocalypse—and his quasi-leadership role—very, very quickly. Presumably, the nearly instant transition from coma to ZOMBIE WASTELAND would be tough, but Rick handled it pretty well... until now. Lori's death has driven Rick right off the deep end, where he probably should've already been. Andrew Lincoln keeps improving in the role, but it's clear that he's best when he's silent and crazy. We almost don't want Rick to ever speak again.



American Horror Story's most visually stunning episode yet


While Ryan Murphy's awesome hour-long horror montage has always been executed with style, this week's episode, "I Am Anne Frank (Part 2)," was directed by frequent Murphy collaborator Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and featured some of the most virtuosic camera movement and staging we've seen on this or any show. Add to that a script that was already jam-packed with entertaining WTF-ery and we got a truly transcendent hour of television.



SNL's haunting and brilliant short film, "The Legend of Mokiki and the Sloppy Swish"


Some might call this Taran Killam-starring short off-putting or even straight-up worrisome, but if it were really those things would we STILL have this song stuck in our heads a week later? No, no we wouldn't.



The Vampire Diaries' graceful heartbreak


This week was a tough one for TVD shippers. Stefan and Elena called it quits for now, and it appears the same was true for Caroline and Tyler. But where typical teen soaps would've hinged the break-ups on a misunderstanding or a cliche transgression, both splits were handled with nuance and empathy. (Well, in the case of Caroline and Tyler, she helped kill his friend, so that was pretty major, but she had her reasons!). It's tricky portraying a break-up in which both parties remain sympathetic, so kudos to the TVD writers for breaking our hearts so gracefully.


FTWTF

FTW and WTF, "The Gift of Revenge" was one of the most blatant, bewildering, glossy, proud, and puzzling instances of product placement we've ever seen. It was basically a tiny nugget of fan fiction staring the actual cast of Revenge (or at least the ones who didn't have anything better to do after work). But despite the crackling commercial cynicism of the whole production, don't think I (Lily!) won't buy some lace dress JUST because it was featured on this bobo Chanel acid trip.



WTF



Stupid TV promotional posters that don't actually reveal anything


We're looking at you, Game of Thrones. Putting the previously announced Season 3 premiere date your logo font and calling it a tease was—well, we guess it was a tease, but not the good kind.



Jess vs. PMS on New Girl


Repeat after us: Ovaries do not make women crazy. Ovaries do not make women crazy. Ovaries do not make women crazy. It's a tired trope. Stop it, TV.



Glee's bad Kitty


Mean cheerleader Kitty's campaign to turn rival Marley bulimic was so skeevy and awful and un-Glee-like that Kitty has somehow managed to transcend her cartoonish villainy to become a truly terrifying monster, and we're not so sure that's a good thing.



Gossip Girl thinks you care about Dan and Serena


GG is an amazing experiment in how out-of-touch a writing staff can be with reality, logic, or just generally good storytelling. The show has always had its problems, particularly with justifying why certain characters still like one another despite all evidence to the contrary, but nothing is more egregious than the developments in this week's episode that more or less confirm that Dan and Serena, former step-siblings and basically miserable people who kind of hate each other, are an end-game couple, redefining the term "tone deaf."



LAST RESORT WAS CANCELLED?!

So does anyone know a safe place to talk about the Boy Meets World sequel or should I continue just screaming internally.
DISNEY IS NOW HOME OF CONDESCENDING TO CHILDREN. HOW COULD THEY POSSIBLY THINK THE SHOW THAT DEALT WITH CULTS AND DEATH AND ALCOHOL WOULD TRANSLATE WELL INTO ITS CURRENT LINEUP.
But also we could have Mr Feeny back on television if we're really, really lucky.
Am I the only one who cares? Three weeks and counting, people. I'll get Eric to Feeny-call yo asses.

We'll have to hope for the best. The same guy that created BMW is involved with this show, so that makes me feel better. BTW, Tim and Price briefly mentioned this news on their podcast a couple weeks ago. Also, I posted something about it in the BMW forum. You are not alone.

I hope they will have mini reunions with different characters from the old series visiting Cory, Topanga and Riley (I thing there's supposed to be a son, too). Most actors should be available for guest spots, at least. I just hope they want to do it. Will Freidle (Eric) has said that he's done with acting and only doing voice acting.

Heh, I haven't seen that, no. So maybe she's not as bad as an actress as Jackson is as an actor, but at least his one trick is usually good. I don't think he sold that purple lightsaber, but those entire movies were much worse than he was.
Anyway, haters are definitely gonna hate; it's the first symptom of something being bad.

This makes me question if anyones seen Manic. Sure, it was a decade ago, and I'm struggling to think of a character she's played then who HASN'T been super happy (although 500 Days toned it down a notch), but still. Again I say, Oh Well. Haters gonna hate. Or something.
Reply

I don't hate Zooey, but I have no reason to like her either. To me, she's like Samuel L. Jackson in a way, but where his same *exact character in every movie since Coming to America* is pretty damn cool, Zooey's same exact character is pretty damn not.

"I'm whatever character I happen to be right now, singin' about whatever I happen to be doin'....next comes mah muppet voice...yaaar. Then I shake mah my cute little fists at the air~! Carly Rae Jepsen took mah 'do and made it a bigger don't~!"

I don't understand all the hate. I know you didn't say you 'hate' her but this seems as good a place as any to ask why her being quirky is enough to make so many people talk trash about her. She's not really doing anything WRONG. But I guess she's not the only person that happens to. Oh well.
(This is the main reason I feel bad for celebrities. The tiniest mannerisms can earn them a hater. CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?)

I have to disagree with two WTFs. First of all, I do respect shows that don't let fan campaigning sway the writers from their decided paths (Gossip Girl does do a lot of that but in this case, I'm glad they didn't). Blake and Penn have crazy chemistry.

Also, I'm sick of Kitty being called "cartoonish" (can we put a moratorium on that statement in relationship to her because it seems writers can't go five seconds without pulling it out while discussing her). She's a horrible, horrible villain that definitely became the most evil Glee character yet in the last episode but I'm glad they went there with her. Not having some sappy backstory or deep-rooted inner pain does not make someone a cartoon. It's an overrated narrative ploy to make every villain sympathetic and human ("Kitty is really mean but it's only because her mom is abusive and also a crack addict and she's a holocaust survivor so cut her some slack"). There are people in this world who are simply mean because they enjoy having the power to be. High school is filled with girls who are mean for absolutely no reason and plenty of them target other girls so not giving her a motivation is oddly authentic.

I don't watch glee so I don't know the character you're talking about, but every girl who is mean to some other girl for "absolutely no reason" ALWAYS has a reason, either they feel inferior at home and need to be superior with their mates or some other self-esteem problem going on in their lives, so I believe there is always a backstory.

Being evil without any motivation is the definition of a cartoonish villain. I think you just made the opposite point you were trying to.

The original British "House of Cards" and it's sequels were so good! Ian Richardson was phenomenal. I like David Fincher & Kevin Spacey so hopefully they can do it justice.
Supernatural! Amanda Tapping is awesome so she's a great addition and that storyline is intriquing. Can't wait to see where Castiel's story goes.
Loved Mokiki! It was totally WTF but in a FTW kind of way. The only problem is the name makes me think of those toys from back in the day Monchichi...which gets that awful jingle stuck in my head ("Monchichi, mon-chi-chi...oh so soft & cuddly...") Aaargh make it stop!
And let me add to the chorus of Last Resort outrage: Nooooooooooooooo

House of Cards is only a Netflix original production in the way that The Office was an NBC original production, yet another adaption of a British show this time one from 20 years ago which was ground breaking at the time but would probably look tame now.

You idiot. "Original Production" means that Netflix commissioned the production, and that it's not a product that has been previously aired and then bought by Netflix.

WTF #1: Your WTFs for New Girl the past two weeks. I didn't agree with the WTF regarding Nick punching Jess last week, and I don't agree with the PMS one this week. While PMSing is often over-done on shows, I believe the POINT of the PMSing in New Girl was that Jess wasn't actually really PMSing... which is why when she and Nick were in the pool and he basically told her to cut it out, she stopped, went back for the interview, and got the job. She was using it as an excuse for feeling depressed and cranky while not having a job. Plus, some women do PMS by crying and raging. I've seen it (unless they too were acting).

WTF #2: It's definitely not surprising and there have been one or two episodes that were a little iffy, but Last Resort being canceled is still a worth WTF this week. It's an even bigger WTF considering shows like Guys With Kids, The Neighbors and Chicago Fire got full-season pickups.

FTW #1: Don't Trust the B in Apt 23... specifically, Chloe "taking" the job of managing editor at People magazine just to put James Van Der Beek as its Sexiest Man Alive.

FTW #2: Happy Endings as a whole... if I had to choose something specific, it'd probably be Max and Brad as Boys 2 Menorah.

The same sex couple on Person of Interest and the matter-of-fact way it was handled. Jon Stewart's rant about the Irish on Thursday's Daily Show. WTF: MSNBC's coverage of the last Twinkie with no mention the reason why Hostess is going out of business (ultimatum by the bosses in a contract negotiation). Who, what, when, where, and why.

Absolutely agree with the OUTRAGE of "Last Resort" being cancelled...how about a better time slot...that's what killed it!!!! Here's an idea...how about cancelling "Ms. Pouty/Puffy Lips and her so-called 'Revolution'." WHAT Revolution would that be...the "rescue my brother, but we have to do all this other stuff first" Revolution??!?!?!?! I was so over this show by the third episode because i could see that it was going to be the same crap every week...I really HATE shows like that! The only reason it's a "hit" is because of it's time slot and every 18-25 year old watches because they think Charlie and whoever the "guy of the week" is are "hot" -- NOT!!! How about a "revolution" to bring back Last Resort to a time slot where it will draw the intelligent audience who actually know what a good show really is?!?!?!?!

I'm not that excited about House of Cards. I doubt Fincher will be involved in the show beyond directing the pilot, I generally dislike anything that has to do with politics, even though I'm pretty sure Spacey will be great in this (he is one my favourite actors) and I'm sure Kelsey Grammer is owning every episode of Boss, but still. I don't like Spacey's accent here either.

WTF of not only this week but the whole year at least - Last Resort - the best new show of the season, some of the best TV in years, gets cancelled while garbage like Revolution, Beauty and the Beast and and almost every other shit show got a full season order. Last Resort was better than all of those shit shows combined. All it needed was a better timeslot. But no, ABC execs didn't have the balls to admit their mistake, and move it so can actually have a chance of survival. Those bastards.
