You Too Much TV...

Last night's House, M.D. finally made a decision of sorts, one that I'm happy with (though I know not everyone is). But the part of the episode that made the biggest impression was the impressively excruciating punk music produced by the Victim-of-the-week. It was kind of grating in general, but the scene where House and Wilson were trying to talk over it in House's office reached EPIC levels of aggravation. I was squirming on the sofa, ready to howl like a dog plagued by a police-car siren. Good god-- what an awesomely obnoxious collection of sounds!

In other TV news, we just finished Season 1 of Arrested Development on DVD. The finale for S1 was fantastic ("footage not found"), and I vacillate between being sorry that the show didn't make it past S3 and amazed that it actually made it that far. Such clever, twisted, off-the-wall writing. One of the things I love about the show is that it will make some reference to a bizarre event in the past, and often you'll get a visual flash of it-- like the "Dip-A-Pet" business Lindsay had briefly, and the shot is her chasing after an escaping dog that is half-toxic green (in honor of St. Patrick's Day). So much weirdness in a 5-second interval!

Some think it might be the original brothercest show-- Michael and Gob always had a strange vibe between them, mostly due to Gob's relentless flirtation. Of course, the guy was an idiot, so who knows what he was thinking?

Tonight: Pushing Daisies?? No idea-- the Sacramento Kings' basketball game is taking over the channel in my market. Is there a new show tonight? Must I go to Torrent for everything these days?

So, who recognizes the source of the quotation in the Subject line? Huh? Huh?
