It was makeover day on America’s Next Top Model and I’m always amazed by how much of a difference a cut and color can make. Then I got to experience this in real life when my son came home from last night with his head shaved. His hair was to his shoulders when he left the house. Needless today when I saw him this morning I thought there was a stranger in my house!
Project Runway was a bore last night. There just aren’t any surprises with this bunch. Top Design was a little better but I disagree with whom they sent home.
In the middle of the night, I caught an early look at the new Knight Rider On Demand on Cox. It’s so 80’s and I love it. They go straight for the James Bond-esque action sequences with no apologies about the cliches (which are come hard and fast). And KITT is way cooler than he ever was. It’s escapist fun if you don’t go in expecting more than that.
Two big premieres tonight, both on The CW, Smallville takes off in a new, darker direction and Dean’s back from hell in Supernatural setting them off on a new road, as well.
