(S01E12) Not bad. Not bad at all. Actually, it's unfortunate. Last week was a great episode and so was this one. Now the finale is next week. Why do shows always seem to get better when there's fewer episodes left?
Lots of stuff going on, especially the leak of the Julia/Johnny sex tape. It was bound to happen, but I truly didn't see it turning out the way it did. I suppose all signs pointed to Julia being behind the leak. When I first considered that it could have been her, it felt too convenient and I let the idea pass. Had me fooled.
John McCain and his Straight Talk Express are back! His "lost the war" Freudian slip was beautiful, was it not? Maybe his bus really does enforce truth... Perhaps people should swear on the Straight Talk Express in court.

"Blondie": Henry Waxman is Batboy with a dying caterpillar for a moustache. As for Valerie Plame, she's very compelling... And by "compelling", I mean "f**kable"... And by "f**kable", I mean "a little too pretty to talk to Congressmen".
We'll get to all of that in the coming weeks though. For now, there are setup fish to fry. For me, the best part of this episode was how they showed each of the characters dealing with all of these changes. Of those, I thought Dahlia's story was the most interesting. The burying of the money and the towing of the RV both served to show hard it is for Dahlia to let go of her old life.

Here's a few shows coming down the pike from PBS and National Geographic:
Tonight at 9 p.m. (but check listings) on PBS, "Hijacked" will be shown on American Experience. The film tells the story of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine whose members hijacked four commercial aircraft and commandeered a fifth in 1970 to attract attention to their cause. Six hundred people were taken hostage, four planes were blown up, but no one was killed. The documentary will explore both the parallels and differences between terrorism then and now.
Sending Richie, the poster child for eating disorders, into a "fat camp" is just plain obscene, not to mention dangerous. "Proper eating" consists of more than laxatives and Red Bull, and Paris is no wellness champ either unless, of course, your idea of "wellness" involves mixing a line of blow with Strawberry Quik to balance its bitter aftertaste - last year's trend among Hollywood's starlet set. But, I'm not giving the kids at these camps enough credit. They're not stupid. Maybe, they'll even teach Paris and Nicole a thing or two - like how to ingest solid foods.
I love Stacy on What Not to Wear and she has held her own pretty well when she has appeared on Oprah to talk about jeans and great clothing finds. Stacy brings a lot of sass to What Not to Wear and I hope that carries over to her talk show.
Shut Up! It's Stacy London premieres Friday, April 6 at 10 pm on TLC after What Not to Wear.
Both CNN and Fox News were fighting to get a seat in the front row of the new White House press briefing room, and CNN has won.
The White House Correspondents Association decided to give the front row seat to CNN "based on CNN's 27 years of covering The White House, as well as the resources it brings to the in-town and travel pool, and its daily prescence at the briefings."
CNN wasn't the only winner. Veteran journalist Helen Thomas, who was knocked back to the second row to make way for the cable news outlets recently, will get back her front row seat. The association has decided to honor a commitment they made to Thomas years ago. She has been covering The White House since the early 60s.
The new White House briefing room will be ready in June. (And if anyone isn't sure what that headline means, I'm referring to an old commercial with Bob Uecker.)

To celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of Three's Company, TV Land is airing a 24-hour marathon that will feature the first episode, two test pilots, the retrospective episode hosted by Lucille Ball and the series finale. Also featured during the marathon will be episodes of the two Three's Company spin-offs: The Ropers and Three's A Crowd. The marathon begins tonight at 8:00 p.m.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has confessed to multiple acts of terrorism, including the 9/11 attacks and letting the dogs out. Calling him the "Horatio Sanz of Jihad" was interesting because as soon as I saw that awful picture again, I thought of Sanz's appearance as Mohammed on Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update".
Here's a new twist in this whole "who is the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby" story.
Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, is suing Fox News and Bill O'Reilly for at least $10 million. O'Reilly called von Anhalt "a fraud" during his February 20 O'Reilly Factor, referring to von Anhalt's claim that he could be the father of Anna Nicole's baby girl Danielynn. Here's the whole quote:
"Look, this guy's a fraud...we know he's a fraud. But let's - what I want to talk about is - he's done. His credibility is - finished."
The prince says that people are not only sending him e-mails calling him a fraud, he's also getting a lot of dirty looks at the supermarket when he goes grocery shopping. (Wait, a prince goes to the supermarket to get his own groceries?)
I'm not a lawyer, so I have no idea if this case has any merit or not, but I'm glad Bill O'Reilly is getting sued.

Former TV stars don't fade away, they just get new gigs on hip new shows on cable.
David Duchovny, Agent Fox Mulder of X-Files fame, has just signed on to star in a new comedy for Showtime. He'll play a writer named Hank Moody who is divorced with a 16 year-old daughter. He's not only still in love with his ex-girlfriend, played by Natasha McElhone of Solaris), but he has a lot of addictions too. The show will premiere this summer and be paired with another quirky show, Weeds. There's no title yet, though the pilot was titled Californication.
This might be the series that finally makes me get Showtime. Oh, this and This American Life.
