Come Together

Why American Idol may say goodbye to Kris tonight

Kris Allen IdolI don't pretend to understand the motivation of the American Idol voters, but after watching last night's performances by the Final Four, I'm convinced that Kris Allen is going to be the odd man/singer out tonight. It's not that Kris was the poorest performance; I agree with Kona that Danny's "Dream On" was a bit of a nightmare. No, Kris will be done in because he chose the wrong Beatle song.

Rock night on American Idol, with Guns 'n Roses' Slash of all artists as a mentor, was bound to fall on the hard end of the rock spectrum. That did not suit Kris's mellow music man vibe at all. If he wanted to impress the judges -- and win over the fans -- he would have been better off going against the grain and not trying to compete with the heavy duty rock star wannabes on the show.

Dirt: Come Together

Alex Breckenridge stars as Willa McPherson in Dirt on FX. (S01E07) Well it's about time, but this was finally the first episode where I really started to get into Don's character and storyline.

Before I get into that though, I have to talk about the "Previously on Dirt" montage again. This is the second or third time that I've mentioned it and if you don't bother watching it, then you need to. It's freakin' hilarious. Don narrates it and this week he essentially insulted us viewers since he had to recap all this for those of us "with a worse attention span than he has." Moreover, he's not trying to offend us, but we "should really be up on this sh*t by now." The stuff is laugh out loud funny and really helps to separate the show from anything else on TV.

Alright, back to Don in the episode. I don't think I'm alone, but I actually felt bad for the guy this time around.

Heroes: Collision

Heroes(S01E04) A big helping of grossness pretty much right off the bat, when Claire undoes her own autopsy. I don't know how that coroner missed seeing a head wound heal right before her eyes. Guess you don't see what you don't expect. Note to Sylar and other potential villains: the way to put Invincible Cheerleader out of commission if you ever have to -- leave a stick in her head.
