The Weakest Link

While watching Grey’s Anatomy last night, I realized that Meredith is the least interesting character on the show. And that got me thinking: Why is it that there are so many shows where the “main characters” are actually the weakest link on the show? Some examples:

  • Will and Grace: Everybody knows that Jack and Karen are the real stars. I understand the need for straight men (no pun intended), but that doesn’t mean they have to be dull.
  • The Office: Don’t get me wrong, I love Steve Carell, but his character on the show is just not as strong as the others. Whereas Ricky Gervais played David Brent as a sort of desperate, narcissistic fool that you still end up pulling for, Carell’s Michael Scott is just a jackass. Dwight and the Jim/Pam story are much more real and compelling. The show is hilarious, but I wish there were some more dimensions to Mr. Scott.
  • Scrubs: Heresy, I know, but Zach Braff is just a little too Braffy these days. It seems like he’s either mugging for the camera or showing us how precious he is. J.D.’s relationship with Turk is great, but when he’s alone onscreen, not so much. Again, I love the show, but sometimes Zach Braff just makes me say frick!

Make A Grown Man Cry



According to AP news, editors at the Superbowl Half-time show took advantage of the 5-second delay and edited out a controversial word in the song "Start Me Up." The word is "a reference to a woman’s sexual sway over a dead man." Huh? Can anyone find the everyday word that’s now considered perverse before I use it in front of children?

According to CNN, Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow are splitting up. In a statement they said, “After much thought and consideration we have made a very tough decision to split up.

We will respect that request. (Other than this post.)
