Fugger: Lucy Liu

Well Played, Lucy Liu


As I believe I have said here many times, Lucy Liu is so, so pretty in person — we saw her at Fashion Week once. Like, imagine how pretty you think she is, and then double it, and that is how pretty she is. I have a bit of a girl crush on her, and I am still a little sad that Cashmere Mafia didn’t succeed. Not because it was any good — it wasn’t — but because they made her do hilarious wardrobe things like sport an entire suit made of gold, and jog in a fur coat (and, per that post, she had to stalk a dog once). She never gets to do that on Elementary. At least her off-set outfits are still fabulous.

Fugs and Fabs: The CBS Upfronts


We need to discuss how bizarre the notion is of Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar as sitcom-costars. And yet, The Crazy Ones exists, which should probably be re-punctuated The Crazy One(s). Instead of promoting most of the actual shows, CBS did behind-the-scenes reels, and it’s probably a bad sign that the theme of The Crazy One‘s is, “All the stuff off camera and the ruined takes have been SO FUN AND FUNNY.” I anticipate many tales from the set about SMG, who strikes me as a total efficient professional, wanting to Buffy Punch the hell out of Mork. Will Arnett’s The Millers looks so terrible that one can only imagine how desperate he was to take any job at all that ensured Up All Night died a decisive death. The two comedies that look okay, I still don’t know that I’d go out of my way to watch every week: We Are Men might not be awful and Allison Janney and Anna Faris were superb casting for Mom. I bet that one sticks.

As for dramas, there’s just some limited-run Hostages thing — I do love the words “limited run” when it comes to those sorts of stories — and then Josh Holloway’s Intelligence, a.k.a. CSI: Persons of Interest, a.k.a. My Brain Has WiFi. It’s basically an excuse to do a bunch of 3D graphics of crime scenes and evidence walls while Sawyer broods. There are worse reasons to do a TV show. Considering Persons of Interest still seems to exist despite Jim Caviezel being a tree with a mouth, it’ll probably do relatively well.

Fug the Show candidates: Zero. This is a recurring theme. I may have to fugcap Sleepy Hollow just to feel alive.

Golden Globes Fug or Fab Carpet: Lucy Liu


Here is the thing about Lucy Liu. She is never boring. She looks crazy sometimes, yes. But she never shows up wearing a totally boring beige fishtail and for that I thank her.

But is this SUCCESSFULLY crazy? You tell me.

Hilariously Played, Lucy Liu


This first part isn’t funny.

It’s fine. It’s got a pretty neckline. She’s Lucy Liu, so basically, she’s gorgeous. It is simple and straightforward and doesn’t merit any particular attention, to the point where my attention keeps drifting to the row of lights behind her, and how they look like tiny drum, and how challenging it would have been for me — as a deeply immature person — to walk past those without improvising some hot bongo action.

And then I saw her coat. I don’t mean to brag, but I think this is an excellent use of the jump.

i’m so excited for you

Emmy Awards Fug or Fab Carpet: Lucy Liu


If she hadn’t walked right past us, nor appeared on the telecast, we’d have said this was fab. Unfortunately, in certain lights, we and much of Twitter realized this gown was less a mirror than a window.

Does that affect your opinion?
