High-fiving a million angels

I may have watched the TV special on People's "Sexiest Man Alive" a couple nights ago. Pointless as it was, is Kim Kardashian the worst host in the world or what? It was like she was being called on in class to read aloud, and not particularly good at it. Her focus should be on looking pretty in fashion and not talking. Also, I learned that as much as I objectively appreciate Ryan Reynolds, he just doesn't have the spark for me, and I don't know why. He's nice, he's cute, he has crazy muscle tone and apparently has a rescued mutt, but he's just sort of...bland. Instead, I demand to know why Patrick Dempsey keeps missing the cover. 
Interesting (the theory of the 3 Glees). What we've learned upon comparing that list to my episode rankings: RYAN MURPHY NEEDS TO HAVE HIS SHOW TAKEN AWAY FROM HIM.  And Brad Falchuk should be head writer, as none of his were actively bad, plus they include my top 3 episodes and a ton of favorite OTP moments. Ian Brennan, meanwhile, is almost perfectly hit or miss, to a fascinating degree.

[EDIT, MAY 2010: Oddly enough, as the season wore on, we learned that Ryan Murphy had learned several lessons and markedly improved, whereas Brad Falchuck just needs to be fired, immediately.]
COMMUNITY. Hello there, new favorite! I kept getting briefly interrupted, tragically, and also missed the first 2-3 minutes because of Sporcle, but I still think it was basically perfect.

+ Jeff/Annie! I can't even handle it enough to form words yet. Precious, precious treasures of useful moments all over the place. (unnecessary life-saving tackle! random and unintended 'I love you' that mortifies her and which he breezes right past! etc)

+ My head was spinning so much from layer after layer of conspiracy reveal - I think I was actually tracking back and forth between the parties - that I felt like a dog chasing its tail in circles until it falls over and then looks confused as to how that happened. Awesome!

+ Dear writers: thank you, thank you, thank you for playing scenes that I can then cut and paste right out of context to enjoy in a whole new way. I do want to imagine a world where Annie has a random gun because she lives in a dangerous neighborhood, and Jeff is very much WTF?!  A world where she's been bottling up repressed emotions since the kiss and its lack of followup (oh hey, that one might have a kernel of truth to it). Another world where Jeff is aghast at Annie's death and takes bullety revenge. And so on and so forth.

Ah, I love when lighthearted shows temporarily seem to take place in crime dramas. We'll expand on this in the Glee review, but just know I'm appreciative. Especially as, just like with the zombie apocalypse, they can play this stuff out with no actual effects on canon. Living daydreams!

+ I am sorely disappointed that my college experience was 100% devoid of hallway blanket towns. *glows with enchantment at sight*

-No Shirley?  :( 


+ Annie's dioramas are made of magic, and I want them. Or at least to recreate them. I'm a bit mad about mini models that way.

+ alsdjflkasjdlkfasdf. Hurry up, weekend, so I can afford 20 minutes to watch this again.
