Television's Amusements of the Week (10/13-10/19)

Most weeks, a handful of amusing moments from TV shows stick out at me. Sometimes these moments are intentional; many times they're not. Regardless of their intent, here are five that caught my eye last week.

1) Silas Goes Greek (The Vampire Diaries)

Ancient Greece Silas Two Thousand Years Ago from Vampire Diaries
The flashback styling on The Vampire Diaries never fail to amuse me, but Silas's ancient Greek style might take the cake for funniest costuming yet. Forget the outfit; the curls alone would have earned this moment a spot on the list.

2) Mellie's Drunken Monologue (Scandal)


I love Mellie in just about any form, but drunk Mellie might take the cake. With just one scene in which she celebrates her continued ability to make her "puppet husband dance," the bouffanted first lady stole the show.

3) Julia's Nightmarishly Hideous Vest (Parenthood)

Sometimes when I'm cold, I'll wrap a blanket around myself as a makeshift poncho. It's not a good look, and yet it's still 10 times more fashionable than this sartorial monstrosity. I know Julia's supposed to be in a rough place on the show, but this vest needs to be burned with fire.

4) Sarah's Gummy Bear Scheming (MasterChef Junior)

Don't be fooled by the cute exterior of MasterChef Junior's youngest competitor Sarah. As she enjoyed the perks of a challenge win, safety and a massive container of gummy bears, she explained to Gordon Ramsay her plan to make Jack think she's his friend so it will be "that much easier to wipe him out." She then called Jack over so she could drop a gummy bear from above as a sign of good will.



 5) The Return of Jessie Spano (Dancing with the Stars)


I'm so excited. I'm so excited. I'm so ... happy that this actually happened. Last week Elizabeth Berkley reenacted her iconic caffeine addiction scene from Saved by the Bell on Dancing with the Stars, and it was everything I wanted it to be.

Early Previews of Fall 2013 TV Pilots

For the past several television seasons, a number of shows have released their pilots online prior to the shows' actual premiere dates. These pilots tend to sporadically pop up over a period of weeks. So to make things easier for you, I'll be keeping a running list of the 2013 fall pilots you can preview before their television premieres.

You can also watch The Mindy Project's second season opener a week before its premiere date Tuesday September 17th.

      Transmedia Storytelling Article

      For those who are interested, here is a link to Henry Jenkins' "Transmedia Storytelling" article he penned for MIT Technology Review.

      More Br Ba

      Since the focus seems to be on Breaking Bad, I though that I would toss this out for everyone. Breaking Bad just feels right in so many ways - maybe it is due to the five-act structure.
