"Why are you using your 'I love butterflies' voice?"

I finally got some sleep (the deprivation probably wasn't helping my state of mind) and then made myself watch other TV -- funny TV, even --so I temporarily feel a little better. Checkin' out the new extra-large NBC comedy block, where the quality gap between the first and second installments of each hour is hilariously glaring.

Am I crazy, or does "The Roommate" look like an amazing thriller? I do not see thrillers in theaters, which is a pity because by the time they come to the library all the excitement has usually worn off, but I really hope I can keep my enthusiasm up for this one. Hey, look, I have checked out two books supposedly about girls stalking/obsessing over other girls (non-romantic context) in the past week, and they've both sucked out on the obsession plot. It's my newest thing, for some reason. Someone needs to make it happen.

WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL, MEDIUM.



To give you some perspective, this makes Life Unexpected's finale look like a merry old cake walk. I don't - I can't even -- remember when NBC canceled this series, and before CBS picked it up, it was going to end on the cliffhanger of Allison in a coma after the removal of a brain tumor, possibly never to wake up, and I assumed that was the worst possible tragedy on which the series could end? HAHAHA. FALSE. What quaint times. I know none of you watch this show, and many of you have never even seen it. But I may need some help picking up the shattered pieces of my soul, so could you come back here and walk me through my grief if I clumsily recap along the way?
