Worst Show of Last Week: V (Episode: “Pilot”) – There wasn’t any particularly bad television this week but this was more like a lost opportunity. They rushed so much of the show’s premise robbing the show of any tension or character development. I think it’s more of a lack of faith in a TV viewer to stick around to see where’s something going without spelling everything out right away.
The Power Rankings: (may contain mild spoilers)
10. The League (Episode: “The Bounce Test”) -I think FX has finally found a show to follow It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I wonder how many eskimo brothers I have.
9. FlashForward (Episode: “The Gift”) – I was ready to give up on this show but this was the best the show has been since the first half of the pilot. The suicide is a bit of a game changer so now what?
8. Community (Episode: “Home Economics”) – I officially have a crush on Alison Brie (she has also been great as Trudy on Mad Men). I hope this isn’t the last we see of the Pierce/Vaughn war.
7. Modern Family (Episode: “En Garde”) – My only quibble with this show is that sometimes Phil is a little too Michael Scott-like
6. It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia (Episode: “Paddy’s Pub: Home of the Original Kitten Mittens”) – Did you know your could buy a dick towel?
5. Parks and Recreation (Episode: “Ron And Tammy” ) – Finally! A showcase for my favorite character on this show, Ron F*cking Swanson. How did this show slowly become the best comedy on NBC Thursday?
4. Curb Your Enthusiasm (Episode: “The Black Swan”) – Marty Funkhouser is my favorite recurring character on Curb next to Leon.
3. Friday Night Lights (Episode: “After The Fall”) – After Landry gets hot Tyra, now it looks like he’s going to get cute Jess Merriweather (Jurnee Smollett). To quote G.O.B.,”C’mon!”
2. Mad Men (Episode: “The Grown-Ups”) – Well you know they’d cover the JFK assassination. I thought how they did it was okay but I could never really get into the episode except for a few moments)
1. Sons of Anarchy (Episode: “Fa Guan”) – I think what’s been adding to the tension is at any given moment, you wouldn’t be surprised if all the characters just shot each other Reservoir Dogs style
