TV.com's Swell-o-vision vs. Hell-o-vision (April 22)

  • 36comments

Here's what we thought was out of sight and just not right on television this week.

Swell:


... Anne and Leslie filling out Leslie's dating site profile on Parks and Rec
But seriously, how do we get a date with Anne? Meow!




... The mini-Glee parody on Community
There were plenty of amazing clips in this week's episode, but when someone takes a shot at Glee, it always gets our attention.




... Archer's Season 2 finale
So soon? It seems like our favorite cartoon just got back on the air! But the season-ender was great. Our favorite line: "It's okay, it was just cancer sex." Yeek!


... Western Wear for our favorite characters
Community's Troy and Supernatural's Dean became sheriffs in two cowboy-themed episodes.


... The Event's emphatic goodbye for Dempsey
He gives a speech, then shoots himself in the head. Bravo! This show makes no sense, and that's why we love it.


... BBC America is re-airing Battlestar
What's British about it, you ask? How about Jamie Bamber? Oh, who gives a frak. Any excuse to watch it again. Well, maybe not the final season, but the rest, yeah.

Hell:


... 30 Rock's bad timing
You give yourself an entire hour, and then devote a huge chunk of it to flashbacks of flashbacks? Aren't you above doing a clip show? It looked especially bad since Community satirized the form earlier in the evening, and did it better.


... This NY Times Review of Game of Thrones
Girls can't like fantasy? Illicit sex was thrown in to please the ladies? SOMEONE let their own misconceptions get in the way of a good time.


... IFC's Whisker Wars, coming in August
After watching this trailer, we think this extreme bearding—yes, extreme bearding—competitive reality show reeks a little of desperation and last night's meal. #canthelpbutthinkofallthosecrumbs


... Trump vs. Seinfeld
To summarize, Seinfeld backed out of doing a Trump-sponsored charity event cause he didn't like what Trump had to say about the president. Trump threw a hissyfit. But the real hellish nugget of this tale is Trump's roundabout and illogical rant. He wouldn't have stood a chance in debate club.


... NeNe Leakes and Perez Hilton's Royal Wedding Special
Quick! Conceive of the most unbearable single hour of television ever that isn't an episode of Real Housewives of D.C.! Okay, this nailed it!
