DVR FAIL! Why did my DVR not record the new Melrose Place last night? Arg. I will have to catch it some other time. What did you guys think? Better than the 90210 remake? Better than the original? I've actually never seen the original because I was playing with legos or something, though I remember my parents forbidding my older sister to watch it. I particularly enjoyed the New York Times review of the new MP, with its classic NYT avoidance of taking a stand on whether the show is good or bad.
Hey, what if we made Twilight into a show? If you're into teen vampires, Vampire Diaries premieres Thursday @ 8 on the CW. I'm not into vamps, but I do like Nina Dobrev, my Degrassi fave who had to deal with the discrimination that comes with being a teen mother who also wants to be a cheerleader and a model. The show already has a spinoff of sorts, a web series called A Darker Truth.
Fox is also getting a head start on the new fall season with its Glee premiere tonight @ 9. Most of us have already seen it, since they showed it back in May to (successfully) create buzz. Not sure if the show has staying power, but I'm excited since it's something different and fun. I'm also amazed by the fact that the show's cover of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin" became a bigger hit than the original one ever was. That's kind of a big deal, no?
