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*
(- BRITTA WHY)

-No Shirley?  :( 

+ PROFESSOR PROFESSERSON.

+ 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.

Probably because he's less sexy and more just good-looking. He also doesn't do movies in which he's often shirtless thus displaying his amazing abs.

Community! I wanted to watch it again right after it aired! I love everything about this show. I think it may be finally surpassing HIMYM and BBT as my favorite sitcom.

Community's been hanging out at the top of my sitcom delight for a while now, I'd say you're on the right track. No matter what it does, the show never seems to take a wrong turn.

That is kind of a fair point about PD, I just don't want to admit it.

Whenever you are happy with Community, I feel like: YES, THIS SHOW MUST BE DOING SOMETHING EVERYTHING RIGHT! I don't know why you are my sudden measure for this, but there you go.

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)

Yes! Oh, yes. Plus the blanket fort collapse moment of personal space invasion and LOOKS.

Instead, I demand to know why Patrick Dempsey keeps missing the cover.

I'm rarely attracted to McBangs on the show, but I think Patrick Dempsey is SO RIDICULOUSLY GOOD-LOOKING. So I agree with this, a lot.

Hee! I'm never really unhappy with Community, I'm just sometimes way happier than usual...like when Jeff and Annie are sharing LOOKS in very close proximity, maybe beneath some blankets (wow, that came out sounding way dirtier than intended. I should rephrase). Two days later, and I am still thinking about it. So much good crammed into such a tiny little time window.

I freaking hate Kim Kardashian. I'm convinced her face is a combination of wax and plastic. She is indeed very blah, and personally, I don't think she's that attractive. She's not that good of an actress, either. Did you see the episode of "CSI: NY" that she was in last season? She was the weakest thing about it.

Ryan Reynolds doesn't do much for me, either, so you're not alone in raising your eyebrows as to how he was named Sexiest Man Alive.

LOL! That's definitely the most original description I've ever heard. I did see that episode - but I didn't even realize it was her until afterward, so I guess she's not as bad at being other people on camera as she is at being herself.

Good to hear I'm not alone on Reynolds, though as eleigh explained, apparently all it takes to get the cover is a couple of major starring film roles and/or a really killer set of abs.

My guess as to why Ryan Reynolds was named Sexiest Man Alive? Watch the trailer for Green Lantern. His GL costume is CGI.
