Happy 90210 Day!

I was going to ignore the "holiday" all together since I never watched the original show all that much, but I came across an article that was too good to keep to myself!

Flavorwire examined 90210 and how Mad Men is it's modern, yet retro, take on similar characters. My favorite is the blurb about Pete Campbell and David Silver:

Pete Campbell = David Silver
Pete and David: Young, scrappy, and sometimes too precocious for their own good. Prone to temper tantrums and bad hairstyles, it’s usually these guys’ big mouths that get them into trouble. (Remember the disaster that was David’s “relationship advice” radio show?)

2010 Emmy's: Jimmy Fallon's Born to Run Opener

It's a little late, but NBC finally put up the full opening number with the Glee cast, Kate Gosselin, Nina Dobrev, and Tina Fey. The short segment with Betty White and Jon Hamm is among the best seconds of television this year! The opener was the best part of the show, so if you haven't had a chance to see it yet, now's your chance!

How I Met Your Mother: Season 6 First Promo

The buzz around the next season of How I Met Your Mother is going strong! All signs are pointing to a much improved season after their weakest season yet. With a mysterious wedding hinted at in the clip, I can't wait for it to start!

The Girl at the Video Game Store

Olivia Munn just gets better and better. She was great on Attack of the Show on G4 and I'm excited to see how she fares on Chuck and The Daily Show this season. She knows she's sexy, but isn't ashamed of her nerd background. It's no wonder she's so popular with the fellas!
