What’s On

23 Mar

With so many stories on and the allure of the tweet, we seem to have gotten behind here at SLBTV!

Last night’s Chicago Code (I hear it’s a good one) is waiting for me on the DVR, Top Chef is new tonight and the Grey’s Anatomy musical episode (which I’m concerned about—unless it’s all Miranda and Callie ((thanks to lady B for clue-in on Callie’s vocal chops)) all day long) airs tomorrow. What I’m saying is: This is a good week for TV.

Last week marked the end of the worst season of The Bachelor ever. It was as expected, but the After the Final Rose was a mess. Not even a hot mess. Chris Harrison was a total jerk and eager to make the ladies cry and not eager to offer up tissues. I’m also over the rejected bachelor/ette as new bachelor/ette, but I will give Ashley a chance because she’s from Maine! Go Maine! Also, we learned that Vienna is going to be on The Bachelor Pad. I’ll pretend for a second that I don’t plan to watch.

The Biggest Loser is pretty good this season—we all love Courtney, right?—but I am worried about these new shiny boxing trainer people. And is it me or is everyone going a little overboard with the being nice and giving up prizes and offering to go home? I mean it makes sense sometimes and is nice, but it’s a little much.

And finally, Dancing With the Stars kicked off on Monday. Front runner: The Karate Kid! Best moment of the show was when Bruno went off on a Some Like it Hot tangent.

Thanks to Robert Couse-Baker for the pic!

Peregrine Honig's Fawns

I sorta can't believe how awesome this piece by Peregrine Honig is.

I haven’t totally been following Bravo’s latest Project Runway knockoff, Work of Art – The Next Great Artist but the few times I have seen it, I’ve been pleasantly surprised. The critiques and artists’ statements can be totally affected and cliche, and the fake Tim Gunn seems to be there solely for his accent, but overall, the work is interesting. And last night’s finale was really good.

While she didn’t win, Peregrine Honig of the wacky hats, cotton candy and horn-playing husband, totally captured my heart—and everyone else’s—with the above piece and her lovely demeanor.

One great thing about the finale? All of the contestants seemed genuine, kind and supportive of one another. I don’t think I heard the phrase “throw under the bus” even once. I wish I never had to hear those words in the same sentence ever again, but I digress.

Kudos to Bravo for this one.
