Now, the guys in the band are prone to rash and ill-considered decisions, so ordinarily we wouldn’t expect this break-up to stick.  But the preview for next week shows the world reacting to the split, and more alarmingly, Selatcia decides to show his true power.  He’s been biding his time for four seasons, and if he’s taking action it means trouble.  Could it be, after all these years, the Metalocalypse is upon us?  The next two episodes are going to be rough…

Dallas—After last week’s cliffhanger, we got right back to business with Rebecca tearfully telling Christopher that Tommy sent Elena the break up email. This sent Chris into a rage at the BBQ, got Tommy escorted off Southfork, and Rebecca’s entire wardrobe thrown into a suitcase. Later, Ann graciously agreed to meet with her and let her explain how much she truly loves Christopher, but we suspect it’ll be awhile before he takes her back. He was busy drinking entire bottles of whiskey, finding sex videos of (fake) Marta and John Ross and then crashing on Elena’s couch. She didn’t really want him there, but she couldn’t let him leave in his state. He confronted John Ross about knowing about the scam deal since he said Marta’s real name on the sex tape, which seems fishy, but isn’t exactly airtight. Marta/Veronica is definitely crazy, though, and she’s going to cause some kind of problem.

    What do you guys think of THE NEWSROOM?

    We talked about it a little amongs ourselves – Myndi still hasn’t seen episode 2 as of this writing. I’m not quite on board yet – I feel like I’m being lectured, and the fact that the show seems poised to have a confrontational interview every week means a weekly straw man to get shredded by Sorkin’s stand-in. (It’s something that’s always bugged me about his TV work.) Still, the characters are mostly appealing, so I’m waiting it out for a bit yet. And in the interest of full disclosure, I may not be giving it a fair shake because of Sorkin’s oft-reiterated belief that Internet writers are all bitter failures. That’s always in the back of my head.

    hellooo-
    one gentle question: wtf is a turd wig?

    i’ve googled and googled, and found no absolute reference that makes any sense, but i did learn a new bar joke.

    please educate your humble commenter.

    First off, I apologize for anything you may have learned by Googling “Turd Wig”.

    It’s actually a line from last week’s “Bunk” – at one point the announcer said “We’re gonna need a turd wig because sh*t is getting ugly.” And since we keep it classy around here, I couldn’t possibly pass that up as a title.

    I don’t know if it makes any MORE sense now, but that’s where we got it from.

    How we long for the simpler days of “Beefsquatch!” Thanks for reading, cub! Larry–I promise to get caught up on Newsroom in the next couple days and give you my thoughts…I don’t have quite the same issues with Sorkin, though I completely see what EJ is saying. I felt that way with Studio 60, for sure.

  6. cub says:

    EJ and Myndi,
    thanks for answering. i watch CB!B! but avoid BUNK due to gross foot phobia and that guy’s voice– (neither of which bothered me/were present when he worked w/K.Schall, iirc)–beefsquatch, indeed!

    Working with Kristin Schall makes everybody more appealing!
