“Funny Girl”: I can’t believe people are saying this show isn’t funny. It’s hysterical and so very wrong. Anyway, last night both Warner and Eli were having troubles with their parents. With Warner, his dad had this complete devotion to Wall Street that comes out at the worst time, as he s voicing business men for his sons video game. But then he hates that fact that the player gets to kill the heartless bastards. Hey, I am not a business woman yet, I can be that harsh. He doesn’t like it one bit then locks himself in the recording room where he later gets beat up by a ruthless Girl Scout because he doesn’t want to pay. Yeah, that was hilarious, that little girl had no mercy. It was great. On Eli’s end, since his father moved in with him, he can’t get laid, but then starts to date a comedian. To try and prove that his father is wrong he asks the chick, who he can’t stand, to move in with him. Not even the maid can stand her, even tries to kill her with a plunger with leads to a whole wrestling match, as if the plunger were the sword of power. That was hilarious. It’s those little moments that make the show worth while. Not only does the show have great acting, it’s obvious that everyone on the show are great friends. The script is also very funny, don’t go into this show expecting to take anything serious becomes nothing is. Tuesdays @ 8PM (EST) on FOX.

“House of the Rising Sun”: The one thing the writers know what to do with these Vampire shows is write Vampires. They are beautiful, and they are deadly, and should be fearful. Klaus is an idiot though and I think I will always hate his character. Seriously, he is selfish and stupid and reckless and the actor, Joseph Morgan, he doesn’t really do much to try and show any redemption in the character, versus the other characters. Also Rebecca reminds me a lot of Rosaline (The Twilight Saga), only written 10 times better. Think about it, she wanted so badly to be human and hates mortals because they seem to squander it. She’s not wrong. She was deprived of a life, a family she could have had and death by old age. Still, Elijah would be my favorite character because not only is he written well, the actor does an outstanding job bringing his character to life. I just wish that he would be taken out of that damn coffin. Really, why keep your most charismatic character locked up? Makes no sense to me. Now, as far as the villains to the original family, they kind of suck. I mean their acting isn’t that best, mediocre at best, and the plot lines, the way they are written, doesn’t give them a lot of depth either. That right there is my biggest complaint about this show. Tuesday @ 8PM (EST) on CW.
Starring: Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris & Hannah Simone
“The Captain”: Jake Johnson is hilarious and honestly, the best part of the show. Jake Johnson is an amazing comedic actor; his facial expression and his body language make everything much more hilarious. And you know what, I was worried there for a second that they put him and Jess together way to soon, but it’s working! In fact, it’s even more hilarious now because now they are dating and everyone else is trying to deal with it and make it better. Anyway, I digress. If you remember last weeks’ episode, Schmidt lost both of his girlfriends and vowed to break up Nick and Jess. Well, that plan backfired, but watching him try was hilarious. Why? Well because he told Jess that Nick likes the sexual play called the “The Captain” which was both degrading to the pair of them. But all this did was cause Nick to open up about his feelings to Jess, which is all she has ever wanted from him. So now, their relationship is stronger than ever. Everything leading up to that was hilarious though because Jess and Nick are struggling and Nick’s body language was priceless, he just looked like he needed a very long clean shower alone to get the disgusting sexual thing off himself. Tuesdays @ 9PM (EST) on FOX.
Starring: Malin Åkerman, Bradley Whitford, Marcia Gay Harden, Michaela Watkins, Natalie Morales, Ryan Lee, Bailee Madison & Albert Tsai
“The Social Network”: Another great show, sad to note that it’s rating have dropped. Come on people, it’s a good show. Not going to rehash why it is, you can read my previews two reviews about that here on this blog, but I will say, it’s funny and seriously another take on a modern family. Except this show has many more likable characters.
Now, that being said, this was a very fun episode. Apparently the eldest daughter snuck out and lied to her parents, she even “hooked” up with some guy. So now the parents have decided to snoop in her stiff and stalk her. The father even went as far as to go onto her facebook page, but unfortunately kept typing in the status update box, causing her total and complete humiliation. This episode manly focused on the do’s and don’ts of parenting. My mom is my best friend and I fear and respect her and I turned out fine, that’s what this show is about, relationships, and not just lover relationships, all types. It mocked how paranoid parents have become in this day in age because they all fear what the heck their children are doing. Remember, life is all about learning from your mistakes, so let them learn! Those were my two cents and the show seems to agree with me. Tuesdays @ 930 (EST) on ABC.
Genre: Crime, Thriller, Drama
Starring: Jim Caviezel, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman, Michael Emerson, Sarah Shahi & Amy Acker
“Lady Killer”: Very misleading commercial. Here you think that the guy is a killer, and it looks a lot like that, but then, as a viewer, you’re second guessing yourself. Turns out he was a good guy in the end and he and Carter really hit it off. I hope that they date, just like John and Zoe are dating. She needs to guest star more. Also it was hilarious seeing Sarah Shahi with her attitude trying to act like a girl, then she got all girly about her guns. She really is funny and a great addition to the cast. Anyway, this really was a great episode because the father kidnapped his own son, the son he never knew about because his ex-girlfriends father not only threatened his life, but told him that she had an abortion. I am so glad that John punched him. It was a funny, action packed adventure and was amazing. The cast has great chemistry with one another and the acting is always superb. Still, don’t like the fact that there is more Root in the series this season. Tuesdays @ 10PM (EST) on CBS.
