review2015smallReview has continued to be highly entertaining in its second season. Last week, TV critic Forrest MacNeil had three more hilarious life experiences to review. First up was “being falsely accused” — and his assistants arranged for him to take the fall for setting a sorority house on fire. It looked like Forrest might really go to jail; however, the real perpetrator was caught and he was exonerated. After that, a young student asked Forrest to review what it was like to “sleep with your teacher,” which Forrest took literally. He found the young man’s married teacher Suzanne and had sex with her on camera. And for his final review of last week, Forrest took a look at what it was like to be a little person. He retrofit his office with giant furniture and a comically large phone and walked around on his knees like Dorf. As he tried to cook a meal for his new girlfriend Suzanne in his father’s house, Forrest accidentally started a fire. However, the fire extinguisher was too high on the wall for a little person, so he just made his way out of the house and let it burn, cursing the plight of the little person the whole time. Meanwhile, he could have just stood up, grabbed the extinguisher, and put out the fire while it was still small.

I really enjoy the serialized nature of this series — how the consequences of each of Forrest’s reviews continues to build off the previous ones. And I love how earnestly and seriously Forrest takes his reviews. It is hilarious how clueless he is to the wreck he is leaving in his wake, both to his own life and to others around him. Will Forrest’s father forgive him for burning down his house? Where will Forrest and his dad live now? Will they move in with Suzanne? And will Forrest ever find a review so bad that he’ll finally utilize the two vetoes he’s been given this season?

On tonight’s episode, “Cult, Perfect Body,” Forrest starts a cult; and tries to sculpt a perfect body by undergoing a series of enhancements.

To see Forrest’s crazy antics tonight, tune in to Comedy Central at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Under the Dome, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, Married, and Documentary Now!.

lipsyncbattlesmallI’ve been enjoying Lip Sync Battle. I love LL Cool J, and I think Chrissy Teigen’s adorable. I have to admit that I didn’t watch Justin Bieber’s episode. But my favorites, I think, have been Anna Kendrick vs. John Krasinski, Anne Hathaway vs. Emily Blunt, and Derek Hough vs. his sister, Julianne, not necessarily in that order. It’s a fun show to just sit back and relax to, since you don’t have to worry about the contestants having actual singing talent, and most of the celebs really just give it their all to look and act silly and fun.

On tonight’s hour-long season finale, which should be a lot of fun—especially for fans of FOX’s biggest hit last season, Empire—Cookie and Lucious…I mean Taraji P. Henson & Terrence Howard compete against each other to see who can lip sync & perform the best, including songs “BrickHouse” and “Just Fine.”

Watch Terrence & Taraji battle it out tonight on Spike TV at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Boom!, Food Fighters, Man vs Child: Chef Showdown, Beat Bobby Flay, Rookie Blue, & Geeks Who Drink.
