Creepy Scientist Guy has a eureka...

Creepy Scientist Guy has a eureka moment — something to do with a heat lamp, a jellyfish and quite possibly, the movie Gattaca. (Without the thick sexual tension between Jude Law and Ethan Hawke, natch.) Bottom line: He "know[s] where it comes from." No, wait, new bottom line: Dude just got run over. Before the opening credits. So then, sea monsters? Not that scary. Government goons hell-bent on a cover-up? Scary. Not only did Cirko see the underside of an SUV within seconds of sussing out some crucial monster-from-the-deep DNA evidence, but now his lab lackey Singh (you remember: the face-flaying guy who made a miraculous recovery) manages to impale himself on some sort of pointy instrument during a desperate getaway attempt. That's not pretty. And hey, would anyone care to congratulate me on finally learning Cirko's name? Only took me six weeks! Of course, it figures he bites it before the episode's over. Singh, too.

Do Your Kids Need Brat Camp?

Two weeks ago, amid cries of racism and prejudice, ABC abruptly pulled the welcome mat out from under Welcome to the Neighborhood, a controversial and as yet unaired reality show in which several, um, "diverse" clans vied for a house in a coveted community. The cancelation, while commendable, left ABC with a bit of a public-relations black eye, and one could understand if the execs behind the net's next daring unscripted series were given a bit of a scare by Neighborhood's fate.

Enter Brat Camp, a show which sends nine problem children — and by "problem children," we mean teens prone to sexual promiscuity, drug and alcohol addiction, verbal and physical abuse etc. — to SageWalk, a wilderness camp in Oregon, for possible rehabilitation. Potentially dicey fare, indeed.
