Title: “Poughkeepsie, Tramps and Thieves”
Original Airdate: January 30, 2007


Veronica Mars is by far the funniest drama on TV today. It took me almost an hour and a half to watch the show because I had to go back and rewind because I kept laughing over dialogue. So FRAKKIN’ funny…and segue.

Tonight’s first few minutes of Veronica Mars had me in TV geek heaven as the worlds of Caprica and Neptune came crashing together. Ok, let me back up a second. So remember the guy that Wallace bought the test from earlier this year? First off, you remember Wallace, right? He’s that guy that Veronica used to be friends but who has since dropped off the planet? Yeah, Wallace. Ok so Wallace bought a test from a fellow Hearst student (Max), and now Max is back and he needs Veronica’s help.

Veronica and MaxAs it goes, Max (also known as the poor man’s DuckyXDale) met the love of his life, Chelsea, at last years Comic Con. The two met at a Battlestar Galactica session and stayed up talking until the wee hours of the morning. They shared a tearful goodbye at the airport as Chelsea tells Max she left her contact information next to the bed at the hotel. When Max returned, the maids had been there and her info (including her last name) were forever lost. Ain’t that a bitch.

Gilmore Girls Recap

Title: To Whom It May Concern
Original Airdate: January 30, 2007

GMMR Recapper: Whirl

Sorry guy’s but due to some technical difficulties today’s recap is going to look a bit different then what you are used to. Seems my VCR decided to revolt and devour the tape containing my episode of Gilmore Girls. Thankfully I watched it, but I’m going by memory here, so be kind. If you are, you get a cookie. (GMMR note: VCR? Do they still make those? Thanks for doing the recap for us despite your woes)

Chris, Lorelai and Rory are over at the Gilmore’s for dinner. Too bad the food was so awful that they felt the need to sneak it out of the house in napkins to dispose of it later. Before they leave Emily lets her daughter know that she won’t be able to meet her to go over the seating arrangements for the party. I had just assumed the party had happened during the off period. The real question is will the “celebration” ever take place?

Title: One Day, One Room
Original Airdate: 1/30/07

GMMR Recapper: LaLa

After an obligatory American Idol imposed hiatus, we get the return of smartly written and acted television tonight with this fine, thoughtful installment of House. Breaking from the usual formula of focusing the episode on a patient who has some crazy, mysterious disease that takes the House team (or rather, just House himself) until the end of the episode to solve/cure, this episode had no mystery illness. Or rather, no mystery physical illness. Instead, this episode was about the mystery illnesses and secrets of the heart, as well as dealing with grief and pain – for which there is no solid, uniform cure. Some people, like the old man with terminal cancer, choose to deal with it by refusing medication and instead embracing pain and torture, so that at least someone will “remember him” as a result. Others choose to deal with it by just talking and/or listening to other people’s painful personal stories in the hope that their’s won’t seem as bad. Now, some viewers might find this kind of episode trite and cloying, but I actually enjoyed it. I thought it was nice to take a break from solving mysteries, and just focus on the further character development and humanization of House.

Red Sox GM Theo Epstein Gets Married

January 31, 2007 by

Theo Epstein

A moment of silence please. I just received the news that Boston Red Sox General Manager, Theo Epstein, married his long time girlfriend Marie Whitney in New York earlier this month. I’m trying to figure out a way to relate this story back to TV, but I really can’t. But it’s a big deal for me so I hope you will allow this indulgence.

See, before that tall lanky guy from Newton, MA came into my life, I was all about the ambitious and adorable Jewish kid from Brookline, MA. I had a major crush on Theo – hey I like them smart, what can I say. Yes, I was perhaps the only girl showing up to Fenway to see her beloved Red Sox sporting a t-shirt not emblazed not with Big Papi, Manny Ramirez or Curt Schilling…no, I have a Theo Epstein shirt – yes, my love was that deep. So it saddens me a bit to know he is officially off the market (not that him being single really makes a difference in my life.)

Anway, Sports Illustrated is reporting that Epstein and Whitney married in a small ceremony at…get this…New York’s Nathan’s Famous hot dog stand. Yeah, no clue there. Supposedly “the wife” grew up in the area and has some strong memories of, um, uh, hot dogs?

Epstein getting married without fanfare of the Boston press is quite an accomplishment. This was the same guy that had to don a gorilla suit to escape the press just last year

So anyway, congrats to Theo. You were a good crush while it lasted. Ok, enough wedding stuff…get your attention back to the Sox.

Ed Helms is NOT Andy Bernard

Ed Helms portrays Andy Bernard on The OfficeLucky for us, Ed Helms is nothing like Andy Bernard, the pompous- a capella singing – frat boy-kiss ass he portrays on The Office. While we might not see Andy for a while (he’s in anger management training, but he’ll be back) the folks at MeeVee were lucky enough to catch up with Ed and get answers to some very important questions such as…

Who came up with “Big Tuna”?
I wish I could take credit for it, but Greg Daniels [wrote it], in the first episode of the season. I’m very happy about it, because it automatically puts me in character.You know only Andy would be like, “T’sup, Big Tuna?” It totally puts me there.

How have The Office fans been treating you?
What, you mean since Andy turned evil?

What do you mean turned evil?
He’s always been kind of a douchebag, but a likable douchebag. I’ve just gotten such a warm response from so many people, across the board.

Peter follows Mr. Invisible, who pushes him up against a light pole. How can Peter see him? Well, he’s got powers. “Fantastic. One of those.” Hee. Fantastic! Mr. Invisible claims he’s no one. Now’s not he time to be getting all Emily Dickinson on us, sir. Peter wants Mr. I to help him, saying the city is in danger. Mr. I tells him to leave him alone and walks away.

Niki, still in her padded room, gets a shot on one well-formed buttock.

Matt demonstrates to his wife his nifty skill by reading her mind as they snuggle on the couch. She’s impressed. I’m not.

Mr. Bennett meets with a doc to discuss Sylar’s condition. He’s not doing well. Bennett wants them to keep him alive, as per instructions, but things look dire.

Hiro and Ando suffer through the steep parking rates in the city. Despite Hiro’s efforts to turn back time, he can’t pull a Cher and get them a lower rate. Hiro speculates about what he needs the sword for. Then they spot a man by their car. He’s got a gun. So does the guy in the van. Remember what I said about dire?

Veronica Mars and a Shirtless Logan Tonight

I was hoping to write a headline that would grab your attention. Remember when Logan sans shirt was a treat we were only privy to every once in a great while? Yeah, I’m glad that TPTB over at The CW have come to embrace Jason Dohring and his body just as much as I hope to some day.

Well if you want to catch ‘the bod’ then you are just going to have to tune into Veronica Mars tonight. Here’s a little info on what’s going down in Neptune…and this week’s there’s a lot more going down than just the skank Logan picked up at the beach last week.

Title” “The Message”

GMMR Recapper: Michelle 

This show has some of the most quotable lines on TV. Some teaser quotes from tonight’s episode of “Prison Break”:

– “My dad used to drink.”
– “Find a storage unit full of Arabs! I don’t care!”
– “Hope is for people who do not already live in grace.”
– “Reality’s kickin’ faith’s ass, man.”

Who spoke the words? Read on, my friends, and find out. This was a fast-paced episode with lots of storylines and lots of juicy stuff (alas, no Michael and Sara action this week…fingers crossed for next week), so let’s get moving…

FOX NEWS UPDATE: Lincoln is on Fox News giving a statement (I love how FOX uses its own real-life broadcasters to deliver “fake” news on its shows – first “24,” now this. Do you think the newscasters get sick of being used like that? I know they must be making good money and all, but they must know it damages their credibility somewhat. Editorial end). How did he get on TV, you ask? Let me tell you…

GMMR note: I was so bummed to have missed last night’s episode. With all the SAG hoopla I had to TiVo it. But I’m looking forward to watching it tonight. It kills me not to read Michelle’s recap…I mean it physically hurts. Ha!

Previously, Lee and Kara are in a love catch-22. Baltar signed a death warrant and still thinks he’s a Cylon. But let’s be honest, we’re not that lucky.

Someone is singing a creepy cradle song while Figment Six finishes the noose around Baltar’s neck. Gaeta goes to visit Baltar and finds him hanging. Baltar takes deep breaths and wakes up in some Cylon resurrection goo. Nope, not a Cylon, just another Figment as the guard’s mouth to mouth brings him back to life.

41,403. Apollo leads the Chief to a makeshift bar on the hanger deck. They toast to marriage, “Why we build bars”. Gaeta is in trouble with the Parents for sneaking a peak at Baltar. Meanwhile, Apollo is in trouble with Dee. She’s still trying but he’s not. In a lesson of cosmic karma, Roslin brings Baltar his glasses and a cigar before unleashing a war of worlds trying to get him to talk. She asks about his collusion on Caprica. Naturally he lies. Yelling at each other, Roslin orders Baltar to the nearest airlock. They drag him kicking and screaming through the Hall of the Departed. But Roslin’s bluff didn’t break him; Adama suggest hopping Baltar up on hallucinogens to get him to talk.

The first few minutes are awkward but it’s well worth it just to see the way John pulls Jenna over to him. If you squint enough you can pretend it’s Jim and Pam and life is all good. Oh, and could Paul (Toby) be ANY cuter?! I don’t think so. And I love how when a reporter asks what the award looks like, Angela just jumps off stage and brings it over to him. Adorbs! They all seems like SO much fun and appreciative of this time in their lives.
