Best two nights of of American Idol, EVER.

American Idol played like a day on my mix radio station, with Gwen Stefani for a guest, which did in fact make my night.  No Doubt has a long list of hits that I enjoyed listening to on the radio, almost always loving them individually before I knew who they were by.  And while I never had any particular appreciation for their lead singer until she struck out on her own, recently I've come to realize I actually have a great deal of respect for her.  A hit band, a hit solo career, a clothing line - I like her because she's not managed.  She's very pretty, but she takes control of her life and creates her own image.  Basically, she's a non-screwed-up, rather less slutty version of Madonna.  Not to mention that she actually seems intelligent.  Her comments about the contestants' song choices and rehearsal performance were not only the most helpful and coherent of the season, they were for the most part worded intelligently.  Even my mom commented on how put together she seemed.

Bones: The Priest in the Churchyard
Good Lord, tackling religion two shows in a row. I hate when I'm torn between heckling and sticking up for God. Mostly I like to heckle, because I can't remember a time when I ever honestly believed that there was some invisible being up in the sky, and for me God exists on much the same plane as ghosts and fairies; take that as you will.
