THE BRITISH ARE COMING!
Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses feverishly seeking fame. New X Factor print campaign? It should be. Okay, but seriously, we are SO ready to face the music. Simon withdrawals have reached epic proportions, so this latest British invasion is welcomed with open arms. However, does America share my fervent sentiment for snarky one-liners delivered with unapologetic ease? It appears not.
DANCING RIGHT ALONG
Here we go.....Meta World Peace was the first casualty in the race for the mirror ball trophy, so we'll never know the true talent of crazy! Choice dances of week 2 were the jive and quickstep. It should have been the heave and hot mess! Tom Bergeron was witty enough to host the show solo this week, as is always the case. Yet, the producers still keep Brooke "Beauty Bot" Burke around. She must have been running late from an audition for the remake of Dynasty. Her look tonight was questionable.
REVENGE IS SWEET
"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves." - Confucius. The show begins with this sentiment and I have to admit, I might be hooked already. I am a sucker for good quotes, especially thoughts that are as truthful yet enticing as this one…and then instantly, we are plunged into the world that is The Hamptons.
PERSONS OF INTEREST...INTERESTING
If you weren't getting your fill of network procedural crime dramas with the CSI's and the NCIS's and the Law & Order's, there's once again a new slate of detective shows trying to push their way into the Nielsen top 20. CBS's Person of Interest, starring Michael Emerson and Jim Caviezel manages to take the format and provide just enough of a twist to make it stand out from the crowd.
