Welcome to the very first post from the TV Blog Coalition, a fabulous group of TV bloggers (organized even more fabulously by Dan from TiFaux), each of whom will pick their favorite blog entries each week and pool them together into one convenient superpost, which will then go on everyone's site. It's so chock full of bloggity goodness that I can hardly stand it. (And please forgive us any stylistic or technical glitches...it's our maiden voyage!)
So without further ado, here's the best of the TV blogs for the past week:
BuzzSugar: We reminisced about My So-Called Life and wondered how well everyone remembers it. We mulled over the current state of Heroes. We thought HBO's In Treatment sounded more intense than a college course. And we actually liked Blake Lewis' first single post-American Idol. Yeah, we know.
Daemon's TV: Sandie finds weird couples on TV and shares her new TV addictions (Supernatural, Malcolm in the Middle, and Torchwood). In addition, she gets a first look at Rachel Bilson (Summer in The O.C.) in NBC's Chuck.
Give Me My Remote: The TV Writer's Strike is on everyone's minds, but there's still a lot of TV to talk about in TV land. GMMR is shocked to discover that she misses Karen Filipelli on The Office, but not shocked that she isn't missing Cameron, House and Foreman on House. Should she be? And her readers are wondering if her love for all things Pushing Daisies is healthy or something they should be worried about. GMMR ended her week as she always does by catching up on all the latest TV news with a cocktail.
Glowy Box: Liz answered questions posed by the Googling masses about Desperate Housewives, The Bachelor, and Grey's Anatomy. She also marveled at the extreme improvement in Desperate Housewives' writing this season, and shook her head and sighed at Brad's poor decision-making skills on The Bachelor.
Mikey Likes TV: Mikey listed the many ways in which he’s disappointed by Heroes: Generations, was surprised by how much he likes the new season of Nip/Tuck and forgot about it all after news of Joss Whedon’s blissful TV partnership with Eliza Dushku.
Ramblings of a TV Whore: We recalled about our favorite Halloween episodes from classic Roseanne to Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Ugly Betty. Plus, Rae found out about Joss Whedon's new show, Dollhouse, which proves she'd follow him anywhere... even to Fox.
Scooter McGavin previews the first two episodes of Nip/Tuck. And for those that like to party like it is 1999, he reviews new albums from Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys. No word on when the new Lou Bega album is coming.
Tapeworthy: Vance is watching Project Runway Canada until Heidi and Tim return. He defends Chuck over Reaper, and like everyone else, is still all over Pushing Daisies , especially after their Halloween episode. Finally, Vance thinks they sure can dance at the So You Think You Can Dance Live Tour in Toronto!
Televisionary: This week, Jace was overjoyed about Joss Whedon's Dollhouse, dubious about the rumored Office spinoff, disappointed in Chuck, furious about FOX's US version of Spaced, and enraptured by Pushing Daisies. Also, his blog came in third place in Hey Nielsen's first annual TV Blog competition. He'd be a really happy boy if Joss actually had those seven scripts written.
TiFaux: Which TV character has the biggest daddy issues -- Lost's John Locke, Dexter or maybe Dirty Sexy Money's Nick George? The new episode of Reaper reminded Kyle of the new DVD package of Twin Peaks. Also, we suggested some last-minute TV-oriented Halloween costumes inspired by Pushing Daisies and Heroes.

TV With MeeVee: We're going wOOt crazy on Writer's Strike Updates. We're finding Criss Angel something less than phenomenal. We're mocking NBC's Green Week, while at the same time kinda respecting it. And we're all over the new season of "Project Runway."
