Best. Show.

battlestar-galactica-logo

Straight up, this is the best show on television.  Everything about this is simply stunning.  The episode that premiered tonight was phenomenal.  It’s a shame that these are the last episodes, although the story that Ron Moore and David Eick have crafted is amazing, and I am excited to see how they conclude it.  This is now tied with Arrested Development as my favorite show ever (excluding Boy Meets World).  Go watch this show.  Now.  Seriously, go get the dvds and start watching them.  You won’t be sorry.

United States of Tara is a show that recently premiered on Showtime, about a mother who has Dissociative Identity Disorder — meaning she, without warning, switches from her normal personality to that of any one of her three “alters.” These three include teenage hellcat “T”, redneck macho biker “Buck” and 50’s Stepford homemaker “Alice.” The show is funny, poignant, emotional and fabulous — and here are 6 reasons why you should watch it:

1. It was co-created and co-written by Diablo Cody, creator of Juno

2. Stars Toni Collette

3. Produced by Steven Spielberg

4. Featuring John Corbett (Aidan of Sex and the City fame)

5. Appearance by Tony Hale (BUSTER from Arrested Development!)

6. Marshall, Tara’s middle-school aged son (played by Keir Gilchrist), has to be one of the best characters ever to appear in a TV series

There are more, but that’s all for now. Check it out on Sunday nights at 1opm on Showtime. You can also watch the episodes On Demand from Comcast, or you can check out the first one for free at Showtime’s website by clicking here.

OMG YOU GUYS

Okay you guys. This is Serious Shit. Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas has all but confirmed that there will be a Veronica Mars movie! In an interview with iF magazine, Thomas cites his new time/ability to work on the script due to a cutback in episodes of his new show, Cupid.

“That means I have time to write the Veronica Mars movie,” he says. “But my writing the movie is half the battle. Someone else has to pay for it. Joel Silver does have a certain pile of money. He called on me saying ‘Can we do this now?’ Kristen wants to do it. Joel wants to do it and I want to do it. For me, that’s the next project.”

Apparently he envisions the movie picking up a few days before Veronica’s graduation from Hearst College, and in addition to Kristen Bell, he’s already chatted with Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls, Veronica’s on-again, off-again) and Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars, Veronica’s P.I. dad). Hopefully that list will expand to include Wallace, Weevil, Dick Casablancas, Duncan and Mac, too…

Oh man. What an awesome show. I know a bunch of people have their panties in a twist about a movie and whether it could possibly live up to the show, but I think Veronica deserves closure, don’t you? The end of Season 3 was an awesome season finale but a not-so-hot series finale. (No fault of Rob Thomas’ though, I think they canceled the show on him after they had already wrapped the episode.) I think we should all renew our vows to boycott the Pussycat Dolls (whose show took VM’s timeslot on the CW) in honor of the news. What say you, gumshoes?

LOST

So, here’s the thing. I’m obsessed with LOST.

Like, seen every episode, most more than once, yell at the TV when Kate picks Jack over Sawyer, squeal during scary parts, watch with the lights off, no talking except during commercials… obssessed with LOST.

Here’s the other thing. Last night, I was watching the reruns of the 3-part season finale from last season with three other just as die-hard fans. About once every 5 minutes, one of us would ask a question that usually started with “But, wait…” If the three of us were confused — how does this bode for the new season? Was the jump from last spring until this January instead of this September really long enough to make such a big difference? Or are we just bad LOST fans? Are the ratings for this show so good that they can really just gamble that all of them are going to keep watching for the remaining two seasons and not worry about attracting anyone new? Because if you didn’t watch from the beginning, there’s really no way you can dive in and just start watching Season 4. There is no hope.

I guess there’s always that “recap” episode they show, which briefly summarizes everything that’s happened so far. But can they ever really cram all the answers your looking for into that measly half-hour? *Sigh.* Wikipedia it is.

And don’t even get me STARTED about who got kicked off Top Chef.
