January 20 January 26: Sonia Goes Random Again

Orphans, the end of the Slayer, and Angel jumps the shark...

By Sonia Mansfield     January 20, 2003

Random thoughts alert!

I've got an idea for a reality show. Wanna hear it? Too bad. I'm going to tell you anyway.

It's called WHO'S YOUR DADDY?

Twenty-five orphans compete BACHELOR-style for the love of one potential daddy.

Hey, at least when these kids don't get picked they've got something to cry about. "It's back to the orphanage for you little Timmy."

Oh, don't get mad at me. You know Fox is this close to putting a show just like this on the air...

Yeah, so, CBS is planning a spin-off of that lame show JAG. What are the chances that they'll title it CSI: JAG?

The word is that this is BUFFY's final season. I guess it's time. They seem to be running out of monsters to fight, but I sure am going to miss it when it's gone.

I know I'm going to get tons of angry emails for this one, but I'm going to say it anyway. Anyone else think that ANGEL jumped the shark when Connor came back 16 years old?

It pains me to say this but ever since Connor returned from that dimension I've become less interested in the show.

I've mentioned before how much I loved ROBBERY HOMICIDE DIVISION. Well, if you loved it too then maybe you should check out SaveRobberyHomicide.com. I don't know if your effort will work these save our show campaigns so rarely work but it can't hurt. This little piece of info came from Remote Patrol reader Susan. Thanks Susan.

Yeah, so anyway, let me know what you think? E-mail it to me at RedSonia@cinescape.com.

Now, let me break down the week for you. Oh, and as always, check your local listings.

Monday, january 20

ABC has

Sean Connery stars in THE ROCK

got THE ROCK at 8 p.m. Oh, I mean the movie THE ROCK and not that wrestler that everyone seems to like.

Andy and Delia audition for the town's winter musical in tonight's EVERWOOD at 9 p.m. I suspect the musical isn't CHICAGO.

A family is found slaughtered in their house in this repeat of CSI: MIAMI (CBS, 10 p.m.).

The cartoon CLONE HIGH (MTV, 10:30 p.m.) is the story of the teenage clones of famous and historical figures in high school. I've seen it. It's hilarious. You haven't lived until you've seen a horny, drunk, teenage Gandhi.

TUESDAY, january 21

Fox unleashes AMERICAN IDOL at 8 p.m. I know you guys don't like this show, but I can't help myself from watching it. The first two episodes are priceless, filled with really, really bad singers and tons of Simon insults.

Lorelei may have found a new love interest in a guy she met at a business seminar in tonight's all-new GILMORE GIRLS (WB, 8 p.m.). Did I ever tell you that Lorelei is my role model? I wish I had gotten pregnant at 16.

Buffy and Spike establish a boot camp to prepare the potential slayers for combat with the First in tonight's all-new BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (UPN, 8 p.m.). I suspect we will also find out that Dawn is a potential slayer tonight. Come on, you know it's going to happen.

Lex's plan to bug his father's office goes horribly wrong in tonight's all-new SMALLVILLE (WB, 9 p.m.). I hate when that happens.

Dutch and Claudette investigate a torture and mutilation in tonight's all-new THE SHIELD (FX, 10 p.m.). Ahhh, torture and mutilation - just another day on the job.

You don't want to miss THE OSBOURNES at 10:30 p.m. on MTV.

WEDNESDAY, january 22

Archer and Trip visit an alien colony in this repeat of ENTERPRISE (UPN, 8 p.m.). Ummm, don't they do that every week?

Gwen Raiden, the hot chick with the electrical charge, returns in tonight's all-new ANGEL (WB, 9 p.m.).

A rookie cop


has an unusual encounter with a pimp in tonight's THE TWILIGHT ZONE (UPN, 9 p.m.). I bet they fall in love.

TNN has got FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN. Yeah, I know it's not as good as FRIDAY THE 13TH I through VII, but eh, what can you do?

Don't forget to check out tonight's SOUTH PARK (Comedy Central, 10 p.m.).

THURSDAY, january 23

The Cartoon Network has got a full hour of JUSTICE LEAGUE, starting at 9 p.m.

Fox is skipping all its usual great Sunday night programming to bring us a mediocre movie: INDEPENDENCE DAY at 7 p.m.

UPN is giving you a second chance to check out Wednesday's ENTERPRISE at 8 p.m.

Rutger Hauer pops up in this special post-Super Bowl ALIAS at 7:30 p.m. Hauer is Geiger, the man who takes over SD-6 after Sloane suddenly goes missing. Of course, this means nothing but trouble for our heroes the Bristows. Also, Francie and Will hook up. No joke.
