It's the last of the blind auditions. None of the coaches have many spots left on their team, and they're all being super-picky. Cee Lo Green, of course, has the ...

You Did Really Good, Baby – Starting Over, 03-07-05

by LauraBelle It was a surprise to Renee, but not us viewers, yet it didn’t make it any less touching for us to witness. When it really counted, Renee’s dad showed up. For some reason not explained to us, Renee’s graduation is being held inside. There are poinsettias decorating the room, so it must have been filmed close to Christmas time. Even in California I imagine it can sometimes get quite cold at night in December. Iyanla instructs the women to light a candle and [...]

Signs of the Times – American Idol, 03-08-05

by LauraBelle I was kind of hoping for guy’s night again tonight for a few reasons. One is that I just prefer the guys’ group performances to the girls’. The other is that I thought my nearly twelve-year-old son could have used hearing Mario sing How Can You Mend A Broken Heart again, as his thirteen-year-old long-distance girlfriend just broke up with him. Maybe one of the girls will sing something to uplift his spirits. Amanda Avila is up first, and continuing with the signs [...]

Shoe Shines, Shopping and Schlepping – The Amazing Race 7, Episode 2

by LauraBelle This wasn’t the most exciting episode I have watched of The Amazing Race. This group of teams doesn’t seem to have the great sound bytes the past two seasons had, and the challenges were less than thrilling. We watched as they shined shoes, and later made a choice between shopping and stocking bookshelves. Without the cunningness of Rob, and the fact that I finally figured out that the redhead was Debbie and not Bianca, we would have nothing to show for the evening. [...]

John Stinks!: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy Episode 3.8

–Christina M. Rau/GatsbyGirl The Fab Five do the SUV scurry. The guy this week is John, who Ted calls a frat boy. Kyan says he has BDJ—bad dye job. Already he’s started in with the hair without even meeting the guy. John is a workaholic and has an online friend Emily coming to stay at his place. He’s also a recently promoted manager of the minor league baseball team in Staten Island. He needs to clean up for his job and a party. Ted suggests [...]

Face it

by Mrs. Agnello The first scene is in the Gotti’s kitchen where they are all having dinner. Victoria starts by saying that John wants to be a boxer. Wow! She says that John is too vain and he would be upset if he bruised his face. John says that’s not true and mentions that when he was five years old he broke his nose. I have to say Victoria sounds a little over protective but I could understand because it’s her baby! After dinner Victoria [...]

Random Acts of Courage, The Contender, Episode 1

by carpesomediem When I first heard Sylvester Stallone was backing and hosting The Contender, I laughed. Seriously, come on now, wouldn’t you laugh, too? Stallone played Rocky, he isn’t Rocky. He’s not even a professional boxer, his training limited to what he learned on-the-set of the film and probably the bar brawls he gets in when he goes down to the pub for a drink and the other drinkers who just want to take on “Rocky.” So, how then, does Sly get off thinking he [...]

There’s No Shortage of Talent in This Country – Nashville Star 3, Premiere

by Lisa Unlike the new season of American Idol which featured supersized coverage of the audition process, Nashville Star chose to go in the exact opposite direction this year. Season 3 opens by skipping the auditions completely and plunging us straight into the awesome responsibility of crushing a contestant’s lifelong dream based on a single impression. This is a bit of a bummer from an entertainment point of view as well, as one of my favorite parts of the previous seasons was meeting the nutty [...]

Meet the Contenders – Contender Commentary, Episode 1

by Panndyra, Goddess of Chaos After watching the first five minutes of the premiere, I turned to my husband and said, “Damn you, Mark Burnett.” I was already hooked. I loved watching Sylvester Stallone in his Rambo and Rocky Movies. I didn’t like “Stop or My Mom will Shoot” or “Oscar” very much – but you know, a Stallone’s gotta eat. This has all the human interest of any great Reality TV series with a lot more heart. I am not a boxing fan. I [...]

Hey Baby, What's Your Sign? – American Idol 4 – 3/7/05

By Annie I think FOX is reaching for themes as tonight’s is astrological signs. Oh yes, this has sooo much to do with the competition. Before each performer sings, we get to learn what his sign is and how this plays into their participation on AI. Okay – moving on…. The show starts with a bit of chit-chat between Ryan and the judges. Simon says that so far the results have been fair. He disagrees with those who say they were voted out because they [...]
