Gather round children, and I will tell you a tale about a faraway place full of fantasy and adventure. Join me, wont you, in the land of Colies Vagina; its a magical place where dreams come true and anything is possible! But dont lose your way. The heavy self-delusion and obnoxious neediness in the air have trapped many a brave adventurer in the past. Now that were here, though, Im confident one day, MTV will take us out
right?Our story begins with Colies boyfriend Corey, whos been mysteriously invisible up until now. But dont be fooled! He was here all along. Shhh
he still doesnt know Colie had sex with her new cast mate on national television less than 48 hours after they entered into their open relationship, nor that Colies calling her new crush Adam immediately after hanging up the phone with Corey.Oh! Look over there. Its Alex, with whom Colie still shamelessly flirts, even tho...
Sometimes I feel hung over from just watching this season. Seriously, can anyone remember the last time this cast was sober? And these alchies are falling into the same pattern again and again. How many times are we going to see two housemates (one usually being Jenn) get incredibly wasted, start insulting and screaming at each other for no apparent reason, and then make up the next morning because neither of them can really remember what happened? First with Davis and Tyrie (which I still havent gotten over), then with Jenn and Tyrie. And now Jenn and Stephen and Jenn and Alex. Well, just like Ive never forgiven Davis for what he said when he was drunk, I dont think Im getting over what Alex said in this episode anytime soon. He is actually a horrible person! Telling Stephen not to think of Jenn as a person but as a fragile thing to hurt in any way he can seriously creeped me out. And even weirder, when Alex is apparently (I can never tell) drunk...
First off, I just want to say that since the Outward Bound job started, there have been way too many vagina references on this show. I still cant concentrate on anything Colie says ever since she warned the entire car that her vagina was going to get really hairy over the course of the trip and that everyone was just going to have to deal with it. And since most of the drama centered on Brookes tad too-public attempt to wipe her vagina with a wet nap, I think Im ready for an episode that focuses more on the male cast members wilderness experiences. OK, so obviously Colie really did get mono, but I had to wonder how severe of a case it really was once she made amazing strides in her lengthy recovery the moment she spotted hottie Outward Bound instructor, Adam. Wouldnt you know it? That debilitating fatigue seems to be letting up! I dont know. I just think Colie is so attention-hungry, especially toward Alex (she made sure to let him know about her ...
The Wiggles are expected to announce on Thursday that lead singer/"Yellow Wiggle" Greg Page is leaving the popular children's group due to a serious illness that has caused him to suffer fainting spells and lethargy.... Snoop Dogg and two members of his entourage were arrested Tuesday for investigation of illegally possessing a handgun, coke and weed as Dogg left NBC after performing on The Tonight Show.... A&E has set a Jan. 10 premiere for its semi-sanitized episodes of The Sopranos, to run back-to-back on Wednesdays from 9 to 11:30 pm/ET.... The Nov. 22 premiere of MTV's The Real World: Denver drew just 1.56 million viewers, down a whopping 53 percent from the February debut of the Key West edition.
Question: A&E and Bravo have abandoned the highbrow entertainment they were created to showcase for the more lucrative waters of lowest-common-denominator reality shows, but they are just some of the latest examples of this phenomenon. Niche cable nets start out aimed at a targeted audience, often providing the only example of certain types of programming, but after a few years they start moving inexorably to the mainstream. MTV goes from videos to endless Real World-type shows. VH1 goes from videos to repackaged nostalgia shows. The Nashville Network turns into the National Network then morphs all the way into Spike. The Game Show Network becomes GSN, the Outdoor Life Network (which I hadn't heard of until it made its move) becomes the new ESPN. Even outfits that don't totally change their "mission statement" start adding their own versions of Survivor or American Idol. Is the money in niche programming so lousy that these networks have to make the change, or is it a case of their ...
Question: Hey Matt, why is Unanimous different from any other reality show? The people on the show had no idea why they were going to be there. If you were given the chance to win $1.5 million, what would you do? Survivor is a show about backstabbing for dollars. Big Brother, same thing. What about The Real World? At least on Unanimous they are going for money. Deal or No Deal? Great show. However, way to promote total gamblers. The best is, they do it with their children sitting right there! You just jumped on the Unanimous hate bandwagon. Instead of watching the first 10 minutes, you should have kept watching. I gave it a chance and it got really entertaining.
Answer: You're really asking me to defend my contempt for this utter piece of trash? (If it doesn't end up as the No. 1 worst show on Television Week's semiannual Critics Poll, I will be flabbergasted.) Look, anyone is entitled to a guilty pleasure, but Unanimous takes what was heretofore my least favorite reality concept, the
Queen Elizabeth's world gets royally exposed.
A three-part documentary premiering tonight on PBS (check local listings) lets us do more than peek through the keyhole into Queen Elizabeth's private world. In Windsor Castle: A Royal Year, we pull up a gilded chair alongside Her Majesty at lavish parties (with such, um, notable guests as David Hasselhoff), at a wedding and at one of Prince Harry's polo matches.
But what's in it for her? Good PR and a little damage control. The 79-year-old monarch never gives interviews (nor does she in this show), but the cameras reveal her as warm and accessible. We even see her driving herself around town. And while hubby Prince Philip, 84, has a rep "for always putting his foot in
Question: I have been hearing a lot of things about the possibility of Hannah (Sarah Drew) leaving Everwood. What's the real story?
Answer: (MAJOR SPOILER ALERT) It's true: Hannah will decide to leave town after receiving tragic news in the Nov. 10 episode, but that doesn't mean we've seen the last of Sarah Drew on Everwood. I can't stress that enough. I also can't stress enough how freakin' unbelievable this show has been this season!
I fell asleep again; tonight it was the soothing rhythms of the kayaks that lulled me into a nice slumber. Seriously, it has to be this show. I watch at least four hours of TV a night, and I don't usually have this problem. Even after this I managed to wake myself up and watch several more shows. You'd think that all these people would make it slightly more enthralling, but it doesn't seem like it. I think Road Rules Theo's comment about Ryan Starr's social skills kind of sums it up perfectly: "I've had a better conversation with a waffle." Well, I've had a lot more fun eating than watching this "competition.".The only remotely entertaining event was the Super High Jump, which was a leap off a diving board over a bar and into the pool. This looked very silly, but of course Mike the Miz and Co. took it way too seriously. At least there's only one more week of this, although I may miss the quality nap time.
Real World/Road Rules Challenge
Here's a sign that reality-TV pioneer MTV knows what it's doing in the genre: Their undeniably addictive Real World/Road Rules Challenge is currently casting for its 12th season, but this time, as a nod to longtime fans of the obstacle course-laden competition, the show is giving "fresh meat" the chance to go up against the RW/RR veterans we've grown to love and hate. Are you what MTV is looking for? TVGuide.com picked the brain of Bunim-Murray Productions' senior casting producer Sasha Alpert, who's been sifting through extroverted 18-to-24-year-olds for the past nine years.

Sasha Alpert: The first one I ever cast was [Real World:] Boston, so that was near and dear. There is a chemistry t
