Tonight on the TiFaux: ETA A Title Here

House gets a case at the CIA tonight. I realize this sounds a little silly, but this is a show that has already done House on a plane. So silly is just kind of where’s it’s at.

bret-harrison1.jpgThe devil’s hatred of Halloween — and a great scene of him smoking, noir-style, in an abandoned meat processing plant — were highlights of last week’s generally okay Reaper. Who doesn’t love Patton Oswalt? No one, that’s who. I hope it steps up from generally okay, because I’m beginning to spend too much time staring at Sam’s cute little freckly nose.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming: I dunno. Talk about Heroes some more?

This Week in Likes and Dislikes

Things I Liked:

  1. Jon, on the latest Democratic presidential debate: “It’s like the world’s most boring Neil LaBute play.”
  2. In the boring moments of Reaper, Sam’s cute little freckly nose.
  3. Evil Horse Lady insulting Kristin Chenowith’s cleavage on Pushing Daisies.
  4. Free taco day. I didn’t eat one, but it still makes me laugh.

Things I Disliked:

  1. Lily’s out-of-control financial irresponsibility on HIMYM (because girls love to shop, didn’t you know?), and that she’s lying to Marshall about it and has been for years, and that they made me hate Lily.
  2. No Kristen Bell on Heroes.
  3. The extreme grossness of the man with sludge blood on House.
  4. See number 1. I understand why they did it for the story — it would’ve been terrible for her to make Marshall take the soulless job just to save her ass — but she’s lying to him. And she’s lying for such a stupid reason! I don’t like this. I don’t like this at all.

Tonight on the Tifaux: Guest Editor

Since Maggie is currently sequestered during the day I’m going to take over Tonight on the Tifaux until she and her peers agree on a verdict. Let’s hope it’s soon because I long-ago abdicated the part of my brain that keeps track of TV schedules to the tifaux and Maggie.

Luckily tonight is a light night at Tifaux Central. Reaper has a Halloween-themed episode (naturally) with the Devil depressed by a holiday he thinks mocks his existence. I love how sensitive the Devil is. Of course I’m still hoping for the episode where his hair inexplicably turns white overnight. Speaking of which, if you haven’t seen it, now is a great time to start watching Twin Peaks. The pilot episode is finally available in the U.S. along with the rest of the series and it’s all in a fancy gold box. I won’t blame you if you stop watching a few episodes after you find out who killed Laura though. Since Maggie isn’t here I’ll tell you that she screamed so loud at that one part that she terrified the rest of us. Man that was a great episode. Too bad my mom gave away the secret back when I was 11. How was she supposed to know it would be available on DVD some day? If someone had told her, she probably would have said “What’s a DVD?”

At the same time as Reaper, we will magically be able to watch another TV show on another network, House, which I voted for in the most-improved category in our recent survey. After the endless “House is Out of Control” stories last season I’m glad they’ve gone in a new direction. House is totally out of control but the show isn’t trying to punish him for it anymore. Which is more fun? It’ll be nice to have Foreman back this week. I don’t miss having the old three as the focus of the show, but it’s great to have them around for color like Cuddy and Wilson. If we had a most-improved character category I would pick Wilson. He was such a self-righteous jerk last season.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming: ABC has the annual screening of the Waiting for Godot of children’s TV specials, It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown at 8pm tonight. The Great Pumpkin told me to tell you he won’t come this evening, but surely tomorrow.

By the way, did anyone out there in America get a Free Taco yesterday?

Tonight on the TiFaux: Just in Time for the Finale

Danson: eeeevil.

I’ve gotten in to Damages just in time for the finale tonight. Though most of the show’s “mysteries” have been solved, they have not been resolved. And as I mentioned, I think we’re in for some big reversals. (Number one: Frye is not evil; he hired those dudes to protect Ellen.)

With the World Series not starting until tomorrow, House is back with a new episode. I hope we keep the new doctors (and one faker) for as long as possible; they’re fun.

And then there’s Reaper, solidly kicking Chuck’s butt, but not really taking it to the next level.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming: Dan pointed me to this, which sounds interesting: “Eight-year-old children compete for the position of class monitor in the first school election of its kind held in China.”

The More You Know: Noun edition

You guys should really submit some nouns for The More You Know. All I do is think of a noun and then figure out something to say about it and it never makes sense to anyone but me.

Tonight on the TiFaux: Tuesday Wimps Out

The only thing I’m interested in tonight is Reaper, which, by the way, is kicking Chuck’s butt in the Chuck vs. Reaper cagematch. Not that you’d have to do too much to beat Chuck, a study in wasted potential. To be honest, neither is reaching the levels of Dan’s top three new favorites.

I guess there’s also baseball. Get it together, Sox!

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming: A reliable source (hi, Mikey’s friend!) says we shouldn’t miss Tina Tequila’s show on MTV. It sounds like the television equivalent of nailing your own feet to the floor and trying to run, but if that’s your type of thing…
