Feeling Must-y?

If not, here’s something deliciously snarky from the Interweb to inspire you, courtesy of the Onion News Network:

Truly, we’re kind of awed by the job The Onion did in reproducing the EW milieu. "Rorey Covey" does an excellent job as a tenacious EW journalist, and the faux Iron Man cover couldn’t be truer to form. (Though in all honesty, our ceilings aren’t nearly that high, and that weird azure glow seeping from the offices makes it seem like we’ve all been consumed by our Blu-ray technology or something. Which might be closer to the truth than we’d care to admit.)

Howzabout you, PopWatchers? Which current TV shows/movies/music/books/games/websites make your Must List this week? In the comments below, list up to three, and include your e-mail address so we can contact you if we decide to use your submission in the magazine. Deadline is tomorrow, Thursday, April 17, at 10 a.m. ET.

    1) Kristin Wigg on SNL. She has some of the most distinguished original characters (Target Lady, Judy Grimes, Penelope, Aunt Linda, Suprise Party Girl, etc.) Does some of the best “celebrity” impressions (From Peyton’s “Face Time” to a spot-on Jamie Lee Curtis). And she makes even the most boring sketches entertaining. Yup – I’m in love with this ferocious funny female.
    2) Melissa McCarthy on Samantha Who. McCarthy’s Denna is like a cherry atop this sundae of a show.
    3) pandora.com. The tagline says it all: “Listen to Free Internet Radio, Find New Music.” Just type in the name of your favorite artist, song, or composer and they create a radio station featuring that music and more like it right there! Who needs XM?

    1. Bones, back from a too-long hiatus, solving murders and being awesome.
    2. Eli Stone, which has been consistently entertaining from the first episode to, I know, the finale tomorrow. Here’s hoping George Michael cameos as the God of Eli’s subconscious.
    3. WNYC’s RadioLab podcast of the show–it’s interesting, funny, with cool production.

    – Juno on DVD – the single-disc edition has all the features you’ll need, including commentary by director Jason Reitman and Oscar-winning screenwriter / EW columnist Diablo Cody.
    — Thursday night comedy block on NBC – My Name is Earl, 30 Rock, The Office and Scrubs have returned, with all new episodes until the end of the season!
    — Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead on DVD – see the role Philip Seymour Hoffman should have been nominated for.

    i wish you would do a biggest loser recap. that show is under the radar, but it is fantastic. so uplifting- the best of reality tv. at least these people accomplish something and inspire w/ their screen time.

    The documentary “The First Saturday in May”. Billed as being “in the tradition of Hoop Dreams” it is the story of six horses and their trainers and the path to the 2006 Kentucky Derby, including Barbaro. An indie film, it has been making the rounds at film festivals and getting great reviews from the critics. It has finally gotten distribution in a few cities nationwide and opens on Friday. It should be a great introduction to the sport for those who are interested, as well as a great story and movie. You can go to their website, http://www.thefirstsaturdayinmay.com to see the trailer and find a theater.

    I would say The Palace of Illusions by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. It came out in February, but I just recently got a hold of it. It’s the story of the Mahabharata, the great Hindu epic poem, from the POV of one of the main female characters, Draupadi.

It’s the story of the Mahabharata, the great Hindu epic poem, from the POV of one of the main female characters, Draupadi. It has beautiful prose, and it’s definitely a book people interested in the Hindu religion and ancient India in general should pick up.

    Smallville! – it’s back with one of, if not the best episode(s) of the season (Canadians get it a day early) Spoiler Alert – Plot revolved around the death of a major charecter.

    Jpod, the series on CBC (canadian tv) is available for viewing online at http://www.cbc.ca/jpod/ and is awesome. Based on the book by Douglas Coupland, it has to be seen to be believed. Like nothing else on T.V.

    I know that nothing particular is happening with him THIS week, but Casey Affleck has joined my personal must list over the past few months. He really is an amazing actor and I hope to see more of him in the future.
    If not Casey, I’ll thow out Vampire Weekend as well. Their CD is so much fun to listen to!

    American Idol is on my must list because the singers are amazing, especially David and Jason.

  • Karen

    My Must List includes:
    Idolatry on ew.com: There is nothing funnier – or more on the nose – than Idolatry. American Idol is fine on its own but every single person watching, competing and judging AI should be checking out Idolatry for the real facts.
    Rock Band: This game has completely consumed my life. No other video game has done more to turn non-gamers into hardcore-rocking-at-the-top-of-your-lungs-until-3am-on-a-work-night-gamers.
    Supernatural: I’m obsessively counting down the minutes until the final four episode grace my airwaves again starting April 24th. It’s definitely “can’t miss” TV. Umm… only 11368 minutes to go.

    the book of ‘bert’ is a hilarious book about mustaches – also love idol’s jason – hate archueletta!

    Kristen Wiig on SNL. If they gave out emmys for comedy sketches, “Surprise Party” would win in a walk.
    like watching a star being born

    My must is rewatching entire seasons of shows past…in particular and at the top of my Must List is ‘Six Feet Under.” The box set is great, with a cd and sweet extras on an additional DVD. Rewatching the show just drives home all the more what a travesty it is that the show wasn’t more awarded when it was on the air…Frances Conroy, Peter Krause, Michael C. Hall, Lauren Ambrose…the writing…the directing…everything was brilliant. Definitely a must!
