TV Blog Weekly Roundup…

November 4, 2007 by  

TV Blog Coalition

Yeah, there might be a writers strike looming but that doesn’t mean there’s not a ton of TV news to talk about. Every Sunday will be teaming up with some of the best TV bloggers to bring you a wrap of all the latest TV news and gossip.

Give Me My Remote
The TV Writer’s Strike is on everyone’s minds, but there’s still a lot of TV to talk about in TV land. GMMR is shocked to discover that she misses Karen Filipelli on The Office, but not shocked that she isn’t missing Cameron, House and Foreman on House. Should she be? And her readers are wondering if her love for all things Pushing Daisies is healthy or something they should be worried about. GMMR ended her week as she always does by catching up on all the latest TV news with a cocktail.
We reminisced about My So-Called Life and wondered how well everyone remembers it. We mulled over the current state of Heroes. We thought HBO’s In Treatment sounded more intense than a college course. And we actually liked Blake Lewis’ first single post-American Idol. Yeah, we know.
Daemon’s TV
Sandie finds weird couples on TV and shares her new TV addictions (Supernatural, Malcolm in the Middle, and Torchwood). In addition, she gets a first look at Rachel Bilson (Summer in The O.C.) in NBC’s Chuck.
Glowy Box
Liz answered questions posed by the Googling masses about Desperate Housewives, The Bachelor, and Grey’s Anatomy. She also marveled at the extreme improvement in Desperate Housewives’ writing this season, and shook her head and sighed at Brad’s poor decision-making skills on The Bachelor.
Mikey Likes TV
Mikey listed the many ways in which he’s disappointed by Heroes: Generations, was surprised by how much he likes the new season of Nip/Tuck and forgot about it all after news of Joss Whedon’s blissful TV partnership with Eliza Dushku.
Ramblings of a TV Whore
We recalled about our favorite Halloween episodes from classic Roseanne to Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Ugly Betty. Plus, Rae found out about Joss Whedon’s new show, Dollhouse, which proves she’d follow him anywhere… even to Fox.

Scooter McGavin
Previews the first two episodes of Nip/Tuck. And for those that like to party like it is 1999, he reviews new albums from Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys. No word on when the new Lou Bega album is coming.
Vance is watching Project Runway Canada until Heidi and Tim return. He defends Chuck over Reaper, and like everyone else, is still all over Pushing Daisies, especially after their Halloween episode. Finally, Vance thinks they sure can dance at the So You Think You Can Dance Live Tour in Toronto!
This week, Jace was overjoyed about Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, dubious about the rumored Office spinoff, disappointed in Chuck, furious about FOX’s US version of Spaced, and enraptured by Pushing Daisies. Also, his blog came in third place in Hey Nielsen’s first annual TV Blog competition. He’d be a really happy boy if Joss actually had those seven scripts written.
Which TV character has the biggest daddy issuesLost‘s John Locke, Dexter or maybe Dirty Sexy Money‘s Nick George? The new episode of Reaper reminded Kyle of the new DVD package of Twin Peaks. Also, we suggested some last-minute TV-oriented Halloween costumes inspired by Pushing Daisies and Heroes.
The TV Addict
Wondering how the writer’s strike is going to effect your favorite shows? Check out Our Writer’s Strike for Dummies. Need proof that writer’s are actually worth the money — see our favorite quotes of the week! Curious as to this TV Addict’s take on the strike, click here. Tired of all this strike talk already — take a trip down memory lane with our Scranton Office Convention diary.
TV Filter
We argued about whether Chuck is more like Buffy or Veronica Mars. Raoul interviewed Ebony from America’s Next Top Model and got all the good dirt on why she decided to leave the show. Kate managed to write up this week’s episode of The Next Iron Chef without mentioning Andrew Knowlton’s name even once.
TV With MeeVee
We’re going wOOt crazy on Writer’s Strike Updates. We’re finding Criss Angel something less than phenomenal. We’re mocking NBC’s Green Week, while at the same time kinda respecting it. And we’re all over the new season of Project Runway.
