Welcome to the very first edition of Swell-o-vision vs. Hell-o-vision of 2012! We're here! The world still exists and thus, so does the world of television! So, now we present you with what we loved and hated on TV this week.
Breaking Bad's blue "meth" is available on Etsy
Night Blade, starring Todd from Community!
Funny or Die went bonkers this week with fake shows from 1986, but this one, starring weirdo Todd from Community, Robert Davi, and Ray Wise, features
inline skates roller blades and lasers, thus cementing it as our favorite.
Bob Greenblatt's honesty about NBC
The new boss of the network isn't resorting to spin, opening his executive session at the Television Critics Press Tour with: "We had a really bad fall. Worse than I’d hoped for but about what I expected." Shazam! Unlike previous heads of NBC *cough* Ben Silverman *cough*, we're rooting for this guy.
Tyler's psycho freak-out on Revenge
And his brother's mediocre acting!
Alana, Honey Boo Boo Child
You thought you'd seen it all on Toddlers and Tiaras. You were wrong. This is a Vesuvian meme-splosion waiting to happen.
A lady pretends she's Rudy Huxtable to avoid arrest
To get out of a shoplifting charge, a woman in Iowa told police she'd played Rudy (Keisha Knight Pulliam) on The Cosby Show to get out of a shoplifting charge. Cliff would send her to bed with no Puddin' Pops.
Project Runway without Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum
The two mainstays of the popular reality competition are nowhere to be found on Project Runway All Stars. We found ourselves whispering to the contestants (and to ourselves), "Make it work, people."
Showtime's less-than-classy subscriber bait
The cable network is currently previewing the first episode of many of its shows for FREE on its web site, which is swell (go watch Homeland... NOW!). But during a viewing of House of Lies, a gray box covering nudity featured a pop-up that read, "See what you're missing, order Showtime now!" What are we, 13 years old?
Erika the Law Student on The Bachelor
Bachelor Ben's dating pool is a hodgepodge of stiletto'd wackos. "The verdict is in, and you are *clickclick* guilty… of being sexy." Great line! We'll have to try that one out.
