Monday Review: Hart of Dixie



Every Monday, I review the pilot of a television show I've never (or rarely) watched. Then, I give my five reasons to keep watching, five reasons to quit watching, and predictions of the show's future plots.

The Show

This week I chose The CW show, Hart of Dixie. The feminist in me took a long time to recover from that Ally McBeal monstrosity. So, I was like, "What could go wrong with a show that started in 2011?"

Technically all I knew about this show was that Rachel Bilson plays a well-dressed doctor in a small town. Oh, and that there are love triangles. But I have watched a lot of shows that lived on The CW, so essentially I've seen it all before.

Review Monday: Ally McBeal



Every Monday, I review the pilot of a television show I've never (or rarely) watched. Then, I give my five reasons to keep watching, five reasons to quit watching, and predictions of the show's future plots.

The Show

I know practically nothing about Ally McBeal. Like, I know Jon Hamm is in an episode and I know there's a dancing baby and that's pretty much it. I guess I also could predict it's about lawyers, but that's really stretching my knowledge.

Wikipedia Wednesday: JC Chasez


It may sound crazy, but I feel like JC Chasez is the least thought-about former member of 'N Sync. Everyone still cares about Justin Timberlake because he's married to the star of 7th Heaven. Chris Kirkpatrick is the one with the crazy name. Joey Fatone is the one with the crazier name. Lance Bass was on the cover of People Magazine in 2006. Somehow JC Chasez has been forgotten over time. And his Wikipedia page reflects that.

Review Monday: Goosebumps


Every Monday, I review the pilot of a television show I've never (or rarely) watched. Then, I give my five reasons to keep watching, five reasons to quit watching, and predictions of the show's future plots.

The Show

I was petrified of this show as a kid. I was equally afraid of the damn book covers. Even the name R. L. Stine makes me shudder. Although that's a pretty weird name, so it might make anyone shudder. Anyway, it's safe to say that I've never seen the show. A quick glance at its IMDb page tells me that it ran from 1995-1998, so apparently I was only at the ripe ages of 4-7. That makes me feel a lot better about my completely unreasonable terror.

I've also learned from IMDb that "People who liked this also liked...Courage the Cowardly Dog and A Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors." So that combination really threw me for a loop. I prepared myself for a show involving farmers at group therapy.

Wikipedia Wednesday: Midge


We're starting off with a bang (pun absolutely intended...). Because Barbie's best friend, Midge, has my absolute favorite Wikipedia page of all time. It kind of reminds me of what a really angry person might write in a movie review of Juno. But probably before he or she actually saw the movie. Like maybe they saw the trailer once and thought, "Gee, that girl looks too young to be pregnant and now I will write about it because people will care." But then words didn't seem to properly express how angry they were about pregnancy, so they also picked an unflattering picture of Ellen Page with her eyes half-closed to accompany the article. THAT is Midge's Wikipedia page.

Review Monday: Melrose Place

Every Monday, I review the pilot of a television show I've never (or rarely) watched. Then, I give my five reasons to keep watching, five reasons to quit watching, and predictions of the show's future plots.

The Show

I know very little about Melrose Place. In fact, I know so little that up until a Google search about five seconds ago, I thought that Melrose Place was a show starring Megan Fox's husband. It turns out he's only in three episodes. I was also under the assumption that this was the edgier version of Beverly Hills, 90210. I immediately confirmed this second theory because the opening shot was of a person strutting through the darkness in low-cut green cowboy boots. And I was certain that person wasn't Luke Perry.
