I've said this many times before, and I don't think I'll stop anytime soon: watch Veronica Mars
. Seriously, listen up guys, and some girls, even if you don't watch TV, you must tune in for at least this reason: Kristen Anne Bell
. Sweet heavenly hosts, this woman can ring my bell anytime. Ha, bell. I couldn't help myself. And this hottie can sure act, definitely one of the best female actresses on the small screen right now.
A few posts ago, I listed my Top Five Current Hotties
. After seeing the Dec/Jan issue of Giant magazine
(thanks Tarik!), I feel compelled to update (yes, I'm very fickle):
1. Angelina Jolie
2. Kristen Bell
3. Jessica Alba
4. Rachel McAdams
5. Kristen Kreuk
Anyways, I digress. Veronica Mars
. God, the past two weeks have been perfect. That Rob Thomas sure knows how to keep things interesting...unlike, um, Lost
. But we'll get to that in a bit. Some of my favorite moments from the past few weeks: all of Logan's one-liners ("my codeword will be...endurance"), the Ice Maker reveal, and the Clarence/Veronica team. I also loved the music in this past episode. I'll definitely be offering that Morningwood
song next Musical Monday. =)
Here are a few recent articles related to the show:Watch Percy try extra hard to get with one of the Next Top Models.A chat with Jason Dohring

His cameo last week was quite entertaining. Apprently, he's thinking of doing a few straight-to-DVD Buffy movies

. Speaking of Scrubs
, let me also throw out this little nugget: Mandy Moore to guest star in two episodes
I also, surprisingly, LOVED last night's episode of the OC
. I don't think I've been able to say that in quite a long time. It's usually 'I loved that one specific moment', 'it was decent', or 'God, I'm giving up on this show'. But nope, last night I was zipping through the commercials on my DVR with an eager excitement I haven't felt since Season 1. I also felt 'eager excitement' when HBO had a Cathouse
marathon and my roommates weren't home. "Pleasure myself, weap, and repeat." That's a Scrubs
quote for ya...but back to the topic at hand...ha, hand. I couldn't help myself again.
So did anyone else enjoy last night's episode? It just felt like the old days. Ryan's all crazy, Sandy and Kirsten love each other, Seth has his cute, yet non-central, love-triangle storyline. Things are good. And I am also loving Taylor Townsend. I know I may get a few hate comments for saying this, but I want Seth to get with her. She cracks me up, her facial expressions are perfect. The parking lot scene was adorable. I thought this was a Josh Schwartz episode cause it was so quality, but turns out, it was written by John Stephens
. Bravo, John. I hope you write many more.
Oh by the way, the episode before this one absolutely sucked. Enough said though, they redeemed themselves this week. Here are a few OC

Now to the misses. I thought Grey's Anatomy
was a bit off this week. Meredith's character's getting incredibly uninteresting, the VO's are trying too hard, and they're starting to focus too much on the medical cases rather than the characters. But hey, at least the music's still good right? It wasn't awful though, I still enjoyed the episode, so moving on. Here are a few GA
articles:Timeslot Change?Anatomy of a TV season.
Not really news, but GA's ratings are soaring
So the big miss this week? Lost
. Goodness gracious, it really sucked this week. I couldn't care less about the other survivors. Seriously, it's sort of standard to have the last few minutes of Lost
be intense. They even hyped it up as an "extended episode". And what did we get? A lame ass montage of things we've already seen. I do not understand what they were thinking when they cast Michelle Rodriguez. I winced every time she uttered a line, they were so forced. And she had a lot of lines last night, so there was lots of wincing. Perhaps the producers should spend less time coming up with marketing gimics
, and spend more time writing quality episodes. I feel like the show could learn a thing or two from Veronica Mars
. Both shows have an overarching mystery, but VM
seems to have a planned course, every small clue having a purpose. Lost
seems to be putting things together on the fly. I'm officially starting to lose interest. Anyways, here are more articles:Frustrated with Lost.Elaborately plotted or flimsy trash?Hanso Clue?The numbers don't mean anything?
