Fugs, Fabs, and Fines: The Dudes of the Young Hollywood Awards


For those of you who felt the CW’s TCA party lacked sufficient Ian Somerhalder, this may be balm to your Damon-less wounds.

Fugs and Fabs: The FOX Upfronts


We need to talk about the FOX shows. Well, I haven’t watched the comedy clips yet, but the dramas… I can’t tell if they’re a steaming pile of awful or secretly so hate-watchably amazing that it becomes love-watching. Almost Human stars Karl Urban and Michael Ealy and LILI TAYLOR WHY ARE YOU THERE, and here is my run-on sentence summary: It’s set in a world where cops have cyborg partners, but Karl doesn’t care for this, see, because he’s been asleep for two years (?) and doesn’t have anyone around him like Ironside does to shout things like “DAMMIT, MAN, WE HAVE PROCEDURES TO BE FOLLOWED,” so he crankily throws his cyborg out of the car and it gets run over by a semi and then a “defective” old-model detective is assigned to him, and it’s Ealy, and he says things like “I WAS MADE TO FEEL,” and a grudging-respect is born and also probably some conspiracy hooey. Urban looks like he’s phoning it in so hard and so long that his roaming charges will be astronomical. Cramazing.

And yada-yada Greg Kinnear in Rake as a ne’er-do-well (not a gardening tool, though the latter might inspire Emmy voters more) is zzzzzz, AND THEN. Sleepy Hollow has to be seen to be believed. It’s like Thor (Olde-Tymey Ichabod Crane comes back to life in modern America; makes wry comments about how many Starbucks we have and whether the black cops have all been emancipated, because slavery jokes are a treasure) meets National Treasure: Book of Horsemen (“THE ANSWERS ARE IN WASHINGTON’S BIBLE, ICHABOD! ICHABOOOOOOD!!!!!”) and even includes a moment when the cops shout “PUT YOUR HANDS ON YOUR HEAD… oh, wait” and ends with the slogan “Heads. Will. Roll.” As Stefon would say, “It. Has. Everything.” As I would say, “It. Is. Hilarrible.” I’m virtually certain I will watch. Then again, I said that when The Cape‘s hilarrible promo came out a few years ago, and I only made it through an episode and a half.

Fugs, Fabs, and Fines: The White House Correspondents’ Dinner, The Neutrals


I have to admit that I have no idea why any of these people are invited to an event that’s designed for White House Correspondents — although I TOTALLY know why they all accepted their invites. But I kind of wish someone would let Amy Poehler report from the Front Lawn now and then. I saw SNL. I know she can do it.

Fugs and Fabs: The Game of Thrones premiere


I am pretty excited about the return of Game of Thrones. There is so much sister-loving, nephew-slapping, kid-pushing, family-murdering, dragon-mythologizing (and wintering) to come. Let’s look at them out of costume.

What will crash first: Glee, or this trend?

SAG Awards Fugs and Fabs: The Glees


It’s been a while since this many faces of Glee were in the same room. Not so long ago they were an inescapable dozen (or whatever). Gotta love ensemble nominations. I actually wish the Emmys did that, too. Sometimes, Hollywood, have to BRIBE the fashion out onto the red carpet.

* Note: Late adds of Amber Riley and Jenna Ushkowitz, because their pictures hadn’t turned up yet when I wrote this post.
