Our Must pick makes us giggle like a schoolgirl. What got you giddy this week?

I’m not sure that the video to the Backstreet Boys new single ”Bigger” is as entertaining as the parody PopWatch showed you last week, but the second video from the group’s latest album, This Is Us, gives me a wonderfully familiar flutter in my once-teenage soul. Unlike the band’s dance-track first single ”Straight to my Heart,” this song and video are a throwback to the BSB who had me shrieking and crying in fangirl joy (Wow, was that a month ago already?). Click the repeat button a few times, and I dare you not to hum the tune on the way home.

Now you go. In the world of TV/movies/books/games/online/music that makes you want to squeal in joy, what’s on your Must List this week? Don’t forget: Tell us why and give us your e-mail address (in case your suggestion gets put in the magazine!). Deadline is Friday, Nov. 6 at noon ET.

    Bill Simmons’ The book of basketball

    Sainthood, the new album by Tegan and Sara. Adorable, as always, and finally back with a new cd. Clearly, the top choice of everyone’s favourite Canadians.

    • Ryan

      Yes! I’ve been listening to Sainthood nonstop since it came out.

  • Laura L.

    Katharine Kerr’s The Silver Mage, the final book in her best-selling fantasy series (and my favorite book series of all time).

  • Jul

    Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin as Oscar hosts? I’m in!

  • S

    Nick Carter is still hot!

  • Seth F.

    Danny DeVito on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia- Has there ever been a more inspired “stunt” casting? Probably. Has there ever been a funnier one? Not a chance.

    A Matter of the Utmost Importance on popramblings.com- A bunch of knuckleheads debate pop culture questions and issues. Who’s the winner? You!

    New Super Mario Bros.- I haven’t been this excited about a 2D game in 15 years. Mario, Luigi, and some Toadstools team up to find the Princess again. I’ve got the feeling she’ll be in another castle.

      On board with all of those! About time Wii got some SMB loving.

      • Remy

        There’s a SMB game for the Wii?!

        You just made my day.

    Oh, Sandra, you called it. My once teenage soul fluttered, too. And the video was amazingly not embarrassing, for them or me. That, in itself, was pretty great. I really like the tune too.

  • Jeni B

    The new season of The Venture Brothers on Adult Swim!

  • Jonathan F.

    Wow, Nick Carter is a tool. What had me giddy? Maybe not giddy… but John Lithgow certainly got me shaking as the Trinity Killer in Dexter. Man, Dick Solomon got scary.

    Seeing my best friend’s articles posted online. :) And Harry Potter.

    My Must List for this week definitely includes the Glee soundtrack. Even though I already have all the songs, it’s so worth it for the new tracks (and to have the physical CD in my car for those rare days I forget my iPod).

    Uncharted 2 – It’s been a few weeks since it came out but it’s still the most fun, exciting, accessible, beautiful video game I’ve played in ages. What the last Indiana Jones movie should’ve been like (better acting, too!)

    “Raditude” by Weezer – There will never be another Blue Album or Pinkerton. If you can accept that, Raditude has got some of the catchiest, most fun music Weezer has produced since those landmark albums. Just crank it on in your car on a Saturday night with your friends, and try to be in a bad mood.

    Thanks for sharing Sandra — I second the BSB’s new video. I love them being goofy.

    Other than that and a salary cap for major league baseball, I can’t think of anything else thats a must right now.

  • ES

    V on ABC. I love Scott Wolf’s return to television. He’s as cute if not cuter than he was on Party of Five. The premiere was awesome. So much happened in a hour. Great plot. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

  • Sarah T.

    ooohhh-yes LOVE Scott Wolf!! Loved him on Party of Five and Everwood (miss Everwood too btw). Welcome back Scott!!
