Perfect Couples – “Pilot”

I hear you, cherished partner.

So I recapped the preview of Perfect Couples that aired back in December and found a great deal to dislike in the episode. I was going to skip viewing the pilot, but Matt begged me to check it out just for his own amusement. Adding to this review happening is that the folks who got screener copies of this episode and the second episode said that these episodes were somewhat better than the preview episode.

They’re not wrong, but Perfect Couples remains an obnoxious show that I have no desire to ever revisit again. (Sorry, Matt.) Read more »


Podcast 008: Hope Dies Last with TV Fans

“We’re going to make our name by talking about television in relation to our BMs.”

We’re totally all over the map here. As we stand on the precipice of the mid-season, the Monsters discuss everything from our expected disappointment in The Cape (though, if it’s expected, can it really be disappointment?), shippers and underdogs, how to end a series with a bang, how tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother will reflect on the last one, and, at some point, bowel movements. Apparently, we’ve been listening to a little too much Smodcast.

You really want to listen to this one all the way through. It’s kind of amazing.

Perfect Couples – “Perfect Tens”

Was it good? Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm.”

According to IMDb, this is actually the ninth episode of Perfect Couples. Is the pilot that horrible that NBC needed to show the ninth episode instead? That cannot bode well. And, in fact, it did not bode well.

Perfect Couples is perfectly horrible in every horrible way. I mean it. If the ninth episode is this bad, I do not even want to think about how bad the pilot must be. Consider yourselves warned.

I mean, do you need to be warned? It’s not like you were going to watch it anyway. I mean, American Idol is on at the same time. And you know I think something is bad when I would rather watch American Idol. Read more »
