Where the Heck Have We Been?

Hey guys, the ball was not dropped, it was just suspended in jell-O for a few weeks. I was gone for two weeks with TCA and Comic-Con, and then our Fall Preview section kicked into high gear which takes a lot of our attention. I will do my best to get you recaps of the past episodes. I have been watching though!To tide you over, I wrote a piece in Jump the Shark about the little baby in "To Serge with Love:"OMG! Seriously, OMG! Do you watch In Plain Sight on USA? If you don't you should, it's very entertaining (minus the annoying duo of Brandi and Jinx who play U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon's sister and mother respectively). The reason I'm OMG-ing is because I'm completely in love with and in awe of this little baby they cast in the episode. Rewind for a second — Last night I was watching the latest episode, "To Serge with Love," written by my brilliant friend Kathie Butler. My hubby and I were cracking up at all the jokes that we could literally hear coming straight from Kathie's m... read more

Iris Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Hey guys, my finger is still on the mend. And things are crazy around here because everyone is flying out to L.A. to cover the Television Critics Association press tour and then I'm off to cover Comic-Con. So be patient with us and the recap posting. We're doing the best we can!We begin with two kids (African American kids) walking after school in South Central. The girl says her dad will be mad that the boy dragged her down to a bad part of town. But, they're having fun and clearly in major puppy love. Of course, a car rolls up with Latino gang members who starts harassing the girl about the junk in her trunk. The harasser tells the two kids they're in the wrong hood, and then puppy love boy has to go and open his mouth: "At least I'm in the right country." Oh no he didn't! Out comes the Uzi machine gun and blows puppy love away. Noooooooo!!!

High Priced Spread

We open on a b-ball game ten years ago in Detroit. After the game ends, and the interested parties hand over their losses to a bookie, we see a young boy and his older brother playing in the background. The older brother talks smack about his bro’s game and tries to get the boy to step it up, and the boy looks crestfallen. He says something about how his mom and dad gave him 20 bucks a week for allowance. But the older bro must not have any money (and he's raising the kid now) so the bookie challenges the kid to make ten free throws for 100 bucks. The older kid agrees but the kid freaks... if they lose that money, they won’t be eating that week. The dingus basically says welcome to the real world, and tells him to start shooting. The kid nails it. Enter scary thugs. Thugs are pissed that there was betting action going down in "his" hood. He shoots the bookie, and tells the mentor that he and junior are now under his jurisdiction. Cut to WITSEC ID screens: The big bro: Scot... read more

Who Shot Jay Arnstein?

OK, the titles are getting a little too pun-tastic for me now. For those of you who are too young to get the pun (*gasp*), the title refers to arguably, the most famous and most watched episode of TV: The "Who Shot J.R.?" episode of Dallas. Just Google it.Anyhoo, we start out in an art gallery workshop with a couple arguing. Don't know the dude, but the wifey is none other than monotone Sherry Stringfield from ER! I guess her name is Marci, and she yelling at her husband (Jay) to stop seeing his mistress. What a pig. Mr. Sensitivity tells Marci that he will stop, but she's the publicity director for the museum and their paths will cross, so just "grow up." What an ouche-day ag-bay (my attempt at phonetic Pig Latin). Marci shifts gears and asks Jay what he's up to (by boxing up paintings in containers). He says he getting ready to ship some paintings he acquired from a private collection to overseas buyers. Marci asks astutely, "By acquired, you mean stole?" Heh. Atta girl... I can s... read more
