TV on the Internet, Episode 20: The Only Good New Show Is a Dead New Show



Todd and Libby have some things to say about the Emmys AND about the new fall season. Also, they talk about the soft launch for the fall season last week with thoughts on shows like The Office and Fringe AND find a way to clumsily shoehorn Lost into the proceedings. Also, we hit all of those people who thought Mad Men was getting boring in the FACE.

Will listen tonight. Todd, are you still writing Mad Men recaps over at the House?

Libby: the reason you were so surprised to see Anna Torv looking so hot at the Emmys/in EW is because on Fringe she looks completely plain as they REFUSE TO PUT MAKEUP ON HER FACE. It drives me crazy. They did the same with Jennifer Garner on Alias but there it made sense -- she needed to look different from when she was all slutted up undercover. But on Fringe it's just annoying. I know she's a no-nonsense gal, but for the love of Pete. Some lip gloss, please!

I hate all of the shows on the CW (except Supernatural), and the monkeys running that network. Blech.
