This week here at Televisionary, I've kept the masses up-to-date on the WGA strike happenings, including up-to-the-minute updates to the list of series that have been affected or gone black as a result of the strike. I also took an exclusive first look at the script for NBC's Knight Rider pilot, complimented the improvement that this week's backstory-laden installment of Chuck brought, sadly lamented the penultimate pre-strike episode of The Office, and celebrated the return of Life on Mars.
Elsewhere in the sophisticated TV-obsessed section of the blogosphere, members of the TV Blog Coalition were discussing the following items...
Daemon's TV: Sandie offers a first look at pictures from Battlestar Galactica "Razor". Eric talks about "twisted couples" on CBS' Numb3rs and wonders if Tony and Ziva are about to hook-up on NCIS.
Glowy Box: Liz explained why she supports the WGA, and discovered that The Daily Show is still filming despite the strike. She also debated the difference between being a model video ho and a hoochie video ho on this week’s America’s Next Top Model.
Mikey Likes TV: Trying to ignore the traumatic effects of the writers' strike, Mikey reviewed the two most recent issues of the Buffy comic series and welcomed a speedy end to NBC's green week.
RTVW: We imagined the perfect Dollhouse by playing casting directors for Joss Whedon. Just Jody finally fell for Avatar: The Last Airbender and P-C did a hard-hitting head-to-head comparison of Chuck and Reaper.
Scooter McGavin’s 9th Green: Certainly Joss Whedon and Eliza Dushku are enough reasons to watch Dollhouse, but Scooter has come up with ten reasons why he won’t be watching. But it is not like the show will be on any time soon because of the writer’s strike, well that is unless the powers that be check out Scooter’s solution to the strike.
Tapeworthy: Vance wants to give a big Marc-styled "bravo" to the fantastic writers at Ugly Betty for turning Victoria Beckham intentionally funny, giving Christina a plotline and giving Vanessa Williams a career again. He however dislikes another Vanessa for intruding on his pretty friends Dan and Serena on Gossip Girl. And as supportive to the WGA as Vance wants to be, he was still super excited about the new season of The Amazing Race!
TiFaux: Last week, Dan took his fetish for all things Canadian to a new level by talking about the brand new, maple-smelling Project Runway Canada. Kyle reached an oasis in the
The TV Addict: Not surprisingly, this week, The TV Addict is all strike talk 24/7. First, we suggest more creative sign ideas for the striking writers. Then take a break from strike news to post exclusive interviews with Bones star T.J. Thyne and House stars Omar Epps and Jennifer Morrison. Ending off the week with our one idea to ensure the strike ends early: Boycott Reality TV!TV Filter: Raoul interviewed Sarah from America's Next Top Model. Kate did a play-by-play of Kenneth Parcell's last party ever.
TV With MeeVee: We're pretty heavy on WGA strike talk, including this fabulous post with Mr. Ed! We love the new Playboy show that's like "The Office" for porn! And then there was the immortal Ro-Ro A No-Go For MSNBC-O.
