Dollhouse delivers more thrills on Fox and speaking of thrills or lake thereof, American Idol went pretty much the way I thought it would last night with two of my favorite guys, Adam Lambert and Kris Allen took two of the top spots with Allison Iraheta winning for the girls.
I know Adam’s not the best singer on American Idol, but he’s very charismatic and comfortable on stage and that counts for a lot. Kris will have to step it up a notch if he expects to make it to the top ten, but right now, I like him. But seriously, the only way to watch these results show is with a DVR. I can’t stand how much time they waste with worthless banter.
The special effects team really got a work out with last night’s Eleventh Hour was electrifying as more than thirty people in one small town were killed by lightening strikes during a storm. It turned out to be a nano-virus that was building a metal mesh infrastructure in the top layer of skin turning everyone into human lightening rods. Ouch! That’s gotta hurt. I’m still not sure how I feel about the new addition to the team. I think Felix is there to represent the audience point of view, but too often he feels like an overexcited puppy and that’s not how I like my FBI agents.
Just a reminder, Celebrity Apprentice returns this Sunday on NBC and plenty of great shows on tonight. Check it out.
