On the Glowy Box: Wednesdays are smurfing awesome

La la la-la-la-la la la-la la la! The Smurfs are coming to DVD, and I think it's about smurfing time!

Watched Last Night:
House: House-kus!
Mimicking disease
Seems more like he's a psychic
I'm not buying it

Chase and Cameron
Being squeezed into each plot
It's really awkward

Cuddy rocks hardcore
Her scenes with House are the best
Though Foreman's not bad

Boston Legal: Meredith's dead stepmom is on Boston Legal, and she's cuh-raizy! (But not legally.) She was the highlight of an otherwise kind of weak episode last night. In fact, the main case didn't even entirely make sense to me. Why did this guy have to register as a sex offender all of a sudden when his rape conviction was forever ago? Wouldn't he have already been registered? It didn't seem like the problem was town-specific, since he couldn't even find a job anywhere else. In fact, shouldn't it be a sealed juvenile record? Or was it unsealed when he took the stand in his own defense? Whatev--it was sad and all, but just seemed a bit of a stretch, and didn't really grab me.
