M: Blah blah blah… Christmas blockbusters… blah blah blah… Oscar bait… and here they are:
E: Forget sitting down with your homework: Sunday’s the Must See TV night for this decade. Considering that NBC’s all football, and the CW doesn’t air new programming, there’s still an impressive amount of scripted television out there, especially when the premier cable channels jump in the fray.
C: So if you have homework, yet miraculously also make enough money to afford premier cable, you’re in the small group of people this might negatively effect.
E: Here’s a quick key to help you as you read:
E: Before announcing the winners, Nigel shared his opinion that this year’s top four are so beloved he felt that people would be happy whoever won. It’s no more than what I said to Mr. E a few minutes before. Each of these four deserved it. I don’t always think that, and even when I do I often have a strong preference for one dancer over another. But no, this year I couldn’t decide; each time my mind would propose a favorite, all I could think was “but ____ is so wonderful! Think how much winning would mean to them!”
Of course, that also means I’m equally disappointed on behalf of the two who didn’t win.
E: Wow! That was – to borrow a word from Carly Rae Jepsen – amazing. These four dancers are so talented, so likable, and so deserving! But, um, hello – we’re not going to find who won until NEXT WEEK? FOX couldn’t pony up a single night this week? Brutal!
Okay, so. Cat Deeley bursts on the scene in this amazing beaded and studded dress – cream with bands of black at the neck and hem, and so much blue and gold in the beading that it looks as much blue as anything else. The dress has a deep v; flapper is my first thought, but the more I see it the more it seems like the 1920s filtered through the 1970s. Cat’s big fluffy glamorous curls are definitely 1970s Miss Piggy. Whatever you want to say about Cat’s fashion sense, it isn’t boring. I love it.
E: When did May becomes the best summer movie month? Because the popcorn epics you long to see? They’re in May. Those hot documentaries you want to see to impress your hipster friends? They’re all in May. The sequels? May. May May May May May.
M: Well, given that Star Wars opened in May in 1977, I think it’s been a while.
E: Yes, but it’s not just one movie. It’s at least one every weekend, for five weekends in a row. It’s awesome.
M: As for the “hot documentaries,” as you well know I have little interest in seeing anything to impress any hipsters, friend or foe. I’ll see the documentary if it’s interesting to me.
C: Yeah, hot documentaries seems like a contradiction in terms. And there are some good movies coming in June too. But May is starting off with a bang!
