Private Practice: Good Time Guys and Gals
Private Practice this past week was heavily focused on relationships. Even the major case of the show had to do with a pregnant woman having a stroke, who was in a messy divorce with her husband. The other was a woman trying to get pregnant using her dead daughter’s fertilized embryos, but in life they had major mother-daughter issues.
Addison was a bit miffed her brother Archer took a job at Pacific Wellness. Yes it seems he’s taking Wyatt’s place, who was no where to be seen this weekend. She wanted him to go, she didn’t like how she reverted to a teen when he was around. She felt he was working too close to her, as well as doing her best friend. In the end though, she lightened up and realized it might not be bad having him around. I would actually love it if the show gave Grant Show a role personally.
Archer and Naomi were getting it on, but Naomi was a bit worried. Archer was dating around and refered to himself as “A Goodtime Guy.” She was afraid all she was was “A Goodtime Gal.” Addison warned her that women who get involved with her brother get hurt. In the end, Archer seemed to put his playboy status on the side and decided to see how things went with Naomi, who he called “A Keeper.” I think these two are actually pretty cute together.
Probably the best part of this episode was Sam and Noami, who were trying to become friends and give each other sex advice. Poor Sam was uncomfortable at first, as his new girlfriend was making him wait. It was a neat role reversal where the wife was going out and having the fun in the bed while the husband was being forced to wait on a real relationship. Sam was also suffering asthma attacks (when he got too worked up) and he had one the night he and his girlfriend were going to do it for the first time. She called 911 for help! Poor Sam, how embarrassing for him. Later Pete gave him some herbs to mix into a tea to help him, which it did.
Cooper and Charlotte continued to have issues. Cooper tried to apologize and explain, but Charlotte was still holding a grudge it seemed. Meanwhile Violet learned that neither Sheldon nor Pete wanted kids, and she felt stuck. She didn’t know what to do. In the end Pete decided to move in with her to help her. Of course as he was packing to leave his place, Charlotte came over to apologize and suggest she move in like he wanted to months ago. He told her he was moving in with Violet! Oh brother! That’s where the show unfortunately ended, so we have to wait till next week to see the fall-out.
I feel like the show is jerking us around a bit with Violet and Cooper. Who are they going to end up with? Pete/Sheldon and Charlotte or each other? I get that Cooper is moving in as a friend, but who knows where this could lead. They once tried to get it on with each other, and Cooper was in love with Violet for a long time.
ABC is set to remake, possibly, the cult 1980s miniseries and show “V,” which originally aired on NBC. I’m scratching my head on this one, as how could NBC let an actuall
possible hit pass them by!
Variety is reporting that ABC has at least ordered a pilot to be made of the show. Scott Peters who wrote “The 4400″ is writing the new pilot. According to Variety it centers on . . .
Erica Evans, a Homeland Security agent with an aimless son. When the aliens arrive, her son gloms on to them — causing tension within the family.
There is no word yet on whether or not any past cast member will resurface. For awhile rumors had persisted that there would be a new “V” movie or miniseries and both Robert Englund and Marc Singer were rumored to be attached to it.

Donny Dances With The Stars
ABC has yet to reveal who will be in the next line-up on “Dancing With The Stars,” set to begin in March. Officially they themselves are still casting.
Rumors had it that Cindy McCain was going to be in it, but she and her husband have since said it won’t happen. Kevin Federline was also rumored to appear, but that’s been debunked as well.
Donny Osmand however seems to have revealed he is going to be in the new season. His sister Marie was a finalist a few seasons back.
There is also a rumor that Misty May Trainer, who had to drop out last season due to an injury, could return. She was an early favorite in the show.

Earlier today I posted this press release from ABC, detailing the new Wednesday and Thursday night comedy blocks.
I was multi-tasking as usual, and missed a very small detail in the release, that in fact is huge. Beginning March 26th, “Ugly Betty” is on hiatus until the other shows run their course, upon which it will return.
The problem of course, there is no telling when that will be! Ausiello has speculated it could be as late as June.
This is when ABC is also supposedly going to air the final episodes of “Dirty Sexy Money” and “Pushing Daisies,” though again we still have no assurance that will happen.
Should ABC pick up some great new summer reality programing, we could kiss “DSM” and the “Daisies” final episodes goodbye until they show up on DVD. As for “Betty?” Would ABC dump it as well?
The United States of Tara
So I just watched the first three episodes of this new Showtime show last night and fell in love with it. If you haven’t seen it, I’m sure Showtime will do a marathon soon enough. Or if you have digital cable you should be able to go to your OnDemand channel and find it under the Showtime/Series headers. You can watch in online, but like “True Blood,” I imagine there is some heavy edits (mostly for language).
Watch this show, you will not be sorry! To be honest, when I first heard the name I dismissed it, thinking it was some kind of reality show staring Tara Reid. I did not need to see that! However that is not what it is at all.
The show stars Toni Collette as Tara, a painter/decorator, wife and mother of two. She also suffers from Multiple Personality Disorder (now often called Dissociative Identity Disorder). She made the decision along with her family to go off her meds because they basically turned her into an unfeeling zombie who couldn’t eat, have sex or enjoy anything. However in doing so “the alters” would come out whenever Tara was stressed or having a hard time dealing with things. The family was prepared for this and copes with them.
Tara has three alters. The first is just known as “T” and is a 15 year old horny nympho. She and Tara’s daughter, also a rebellious teen, are fairly good friends and get into trouble. T for example bought the daughter morning after pills.
The second alter is “Buck,” who is basically a porn watching redneck who claims his equipment got blown off in Vietnam. He beat up the daughter’s no-good boyfriend in a recent episode.
The third alter is “Alice,” who is the perfect uptight 50s homemaker mom, who happens to like the cooking sherrie on the side.
The show is written by Diablo Cody, who wrote “Juno,” and is produced by Steven Spielberg. It has an amazing cast, John Corbett stars as Tara’s husband Max. Seriously, give this show a try, it’s really great. It is on Showtime though, which means adult situations and language.
