Friends’ Thanksgiving Episodes Ranked

In: Donovan, TV Shows
best-friends-thanksgiving-episodes

First and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving to all our US readers. Hope you’re not eating too much turkey today. Something I can never accomplish. I tend to overindulge big time during the holiday season.

To celebrate turkey day, I thought I’d rank Friends‘ Thanksgiving episodes. Their holiday-themed shows were typically their best and most anticipated of the season. Til this day, I still enjoy watching the classic NBC sitcom. Check out how I ranked the episodes below. To refresh your memory, I added a memorable scene from each. Enjoy!

Man Crush: Brett Dalton

Since I resurrected my Model Behavior series this week, I thought I’d do the same for my Man Crush feature. For my return, I picked the best thing about Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Let’s face it, the only redeeming part of that hot mess is Agent Grand Ward played by Brett Dalton. I will say though, the past couple episodes have gotten marginally better.

Dalton was born in San Jose, California. He attended both University of California, Berkeley and Yale where he received an undergraduate degree and Master of Fine Arts degree respectively. Hot body and brains to boot. Sign me up. Before landing a series regular gig on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the 31-year-old appeared in episodes of Army Wives and Blue Bloods. He’ll next appear in Chris Lowell’s (Veronica Mars) directorial debut, Beside Still Waters.

If you haven’t watched him on the ABC series, check out his best (ahem shirtless) scenes below, along with several photos. Let me know if you think Brett is crushworthy in the comments section.

glee-100th-episode-remix

There are only a handful of episodes left before Glee reaches its 100th episode. Ryan Murphy and company are leaving the power to the people. They’re asking Gleeks everywhere to vote on ten songs that the cast will cover on the milestone episode. Dubbed “Glee 100th Gleeks Choice: You Vote. We Remix.,” the list of choices has been narrowed down to just thirty.

As expected, the cover that started it all, “Don’t Stop Believin’” made the cut. While I love that performance, I say save it for the series finale instead of the 100th episode. Shame on Murphy for not including the epic mashups from Season 1, “It’s My Life/Confessions Part II” and “Halo/Walking on Sunshine.” For that matter, I think including songs covered this season shouldn’t be on the list. Do we really need to hear “Roar” again so soon?

My personal picks are “Bust Your Windows,” “Defying Gravity,” “Telephone,” “Take A Bow,” “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and “My Life Would Suck Without You (Glee Cast Version).” Check out all the choices below, along with Lea Michele’s debut single artwork.

The X Factor: Top 8 Do Big Band

What a difference a 25-piece orchestra makes. The X Factor finally delivered a night where I didn’t feel like tuning out halfway. Apparently, the contestants sing on pitch much better with a live band. For the most part, the Top 8 performed solidly. No one truly stunk up the joint, making it a bit harder to rank the remaining acts. Check out the videos and my rankings below.

On a side note: How interesting is it that all the judges each have two acts in the competition still? I thought for sure Paulina or Demi would’ve been wiped out by now like Cee Lo Green is on The Voice?

Bob Harper Comes Out On The Biggest Loser

Not that it should come as a surprise to anyone, but Bob Harper is one big ‘ol homo. The 48-year-old trainer publicly talked about his sexuality for the first time on Tuesday night’s episode of The Biggest Loser. It’s worth noting that Bob has never denied being gay. In an effort to inspire contestant Bobby Saleem, who was having trouble coming out to his father, the fitness instructor shared his own story. He wanted to show Bobby that he doesn’t have to live in shame.

I’m gay. I knew I very long time ago that I was gay,” Harper revealed. “When I came out — when I was 17 years old — it was one of those things where I realized that there was going to be so many obstacles, but being gay doesn’t mean being weak. And being gay doesn’t mean that you are less than anybody else. It’s just who you are.”

After their chat, Bobby revealed he would come out to his strict Catholic family. Once the show aired, Harper received an outpouring of support from his Twitter followers. Check out the Biggest Loser segment below.

American Idol XIII Promo: The Stats Don’t Lie

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Up until now I’ve refrained from posting any of FOX’s American Idol promos. With their latest though, I couldn’t resist. As I’ve said before, until The Voice can produce a bonafide superstar like Idol has, the veteran competition will still be on top. The statistics don’t lie as evident in their latest promo.

408 #1 hits, 19 platinum albums, 11 Grammys, and an Academy Award. It’s safe to say that no one has a track record like American Idol! Hell, they even have a Dancing With The Stars mirrorball trophy thanks to Kellie Pickler. The only thing missing from their mantle is an Emmy. That’s the one category that The Voice has bragging rights. The NBC show recently dethroned The Amazing Race for Best Reality Competition.

American Idol returns to FOX on January 15. Though they’ll never return to their glory days, I predict Season 13 will be a comeback of sorts. Harry Connick, Jr. is the best thing that’s happened to the show in ages. The chemistry on the new judging panel is undeniable and infectious. Check out the new promo below, along with the previously released ones. I highly recommend, “Who Will Be Next?,” “Inside Look At Season XIII,” “Fun With The Judges,” along with “The Stats Don’t Lie.”

dwts-season-17-winner-amber-riley

As long as Jack Osbourne doesn’t pull a miracle out of his ass, I’ll be fine with either Corbin Bleu or Amber Riley winning. I just wish the latter was paired up with someone else than Derek Hough. Does he really need another win under his belt. With that being said, I don’t think Amber would’ve done nearly as well without Derek’s insane choreography. He’s definitely the most talented out of the pros.

The show kicked off as the season began, with that wicked group number choreographed by Mandy Moore. After that, each of the stars danced an encore. My personal favorite retreads were Bill Nye’s “Weird Science” and Snooki’s “Work, Bitch.” The latter introduced a whackload of new dance moves. Lady Antebellum, Colbie Caillat, Enrique Iglesias and Swedish duo Ylvis all dropped by for the two-hour extravaganza. Being the cheesefest that DWTS is, everyone got into “The Fox” spirit and donned their faux animal ears. Can we put this novelty single to pasture to keep “Gangnam Style” company?

It’s also worth nothing that viewers picked Amber and Derek’s freestyle as the encore. Is that foreshadowing the winner or simply a red herring? I think the former, but anything can Ellie Goulding happen.

Apparently, I’m much more skilled at predicting results for The Voice than I am at both The X Factor and American Idol. I ranked all eight performances last night and my bottom three fell in line with America’s votes. And my list was written before iTunes released their overnight sales numbers.

Ellie Goulding stopped by this week to perform her UK chart-topper “Burn” with Matthew Schuler, Will Champlin and James Wolpert. Ellie jokingly stated later she now knows how it feels to be part of a boy band. The Top 8 joined forces on “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” and a OneRepublic medley consisting of “Apologize” and “All The Right Moves.” Cee Lo Green also got in on the action and performed “Amy” off Goodie Mob’s latest album, Age Against The Machine.

As always, the most entertaining filler of the night was the confessional segment. The best moments include the contestants’ impressions of the judges. The biggest revelation though was the fact Tessanne actually has a Boston accent instead of a Jamaican one. Wicked good. Enough stalling, let’s get to the eliminations.
