Re: Attack of the Show appreciation thread

Sounds like Friends with married people. In addition to Munn, it's got Bobby from "My Boys" (which is underrated, IMO), and the waitress from Always Sunny.

From EW:

THIS JUST IN: NBC has picked up the romantic comedy Perfect Couples, bringing to six the number of new shows the Peacock net has ordered for fall. Keep reading for the official show description…

Per NBC, “Perfect Couples depicts the misadventures of three engaging couples as they struggle to find out what makes the ideal relationship — and how to maintain it through humorous trial-and-error. The series explores their heroic journey in search of the perfect relationship without destroying each other in the process. Dave (Kyle Howard, My Boys) and Julia (Christine Woods, FlashForward) are the relatable, normal couple, but Julia’s hope of remaining the cool, low-maintenance chick is tested by Dave’s attempts to keep both his wife and his needy best friend Vance (Dave Walton, NBC’s 100 Questions) equally happy. Vance, along with the neurotic Amy (Mary Elizabeth Ellis, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), are the high-passion, high-drama couple who bring out the best and worst in each other. The third duo features Rex (Hayes MacArthur, She’s Out of My League), a reformed party guy, and his wife, Leigh (Olivia Munn, Attack of the Show), who considers herself as the group’s mother hen. Believing that they are relationship experts, Rex and Leigh have attended every class and seminar on relationships — and regard themselves as the ‘perfect couple.’”

Perfect Couples joins previously announced NBC newbies Chase, Undercovers, The Event, Love Bites, and Outsourced.

The little Cameos I have seen her in, I dont think Oliva Munn isn't remotely a good actress, I have a friend who did a Internship at G4 this past summer and said she is very stuck up and nothing like she is on the show in person.

Don't know what she is like in person, but she doesn't seem to be a very good actress to me either, but there isn't much range involved in most of her parts (ie hot girl number 2).

Munn is getting a tryout with The Daily Show as one of the corespondents. Her first appearance was tonight.

BTW - thread is useless without pics:

Spoiler:


Dang, I haven't seen an episode with Haislip. I don't watch daily, I've probably only seen under 10 episodes this year. I'll have to check her, I mean those episodes, out.

i did really like the chemistry between Kevin and Alison Brie who co-hosted the other day. she was really good.


Spoiler:
ooooooohhh I gotta find this episode where Brie was on there. Yes. I must.

I should watch this show more often. I used to watch it a lot a few years ago, then G4 got taken off the channel lineup, but I think it's back now.

Whoa, didn't know Alison Brie had cohosted. I could see her being a great fit on there, Kevin seems like a pretty charismatic guy.

Although she presented herself well, she was completely upstaged by the other correspondents in that report last night.

Yeah, but she was pretty playing the role of the straight (wo)man while the other 4 made the jokes.

I thought that was the whole point of the bit.

I don't really know why they brought her on to do a skit like that, but she played it exactly how she was supposed to.

I would watch AOTS more often if Verizon FIOS would carry it in HD.

I can understand people preferring HD over SD, but not watching a talk show because it's not HD?

AOTS used to be one of those shows I would just happen to watch when I was channel surfing and came across it. It was never "appointment television" for me.

Now, practically everything I watch is in HD, so I only scroll throught that part of the program guide when I'm browsing and channel-surfing. Therefore I never chance upon AOTS anymore. The only show I watch that isn't available in HD on FIOS is Doctor Who on BBC America. I have a pretty large screen (65") and SD really starts to look "soft" at that size. The main reason I would watch AOTS is for the lovely women (Munn, Haislip, et al) and I'd really like to see them in HD.

I looked too and couldn't find anything.

I wish the show was in HD too. But I guess I'll take it. You guys remember when it was on TechTV? Seems like a long time ago.

Update your Flash media player.


BTW, looks like they've been auditioning Jessica Chobot (below) in the last couple of shows to possibly take over as co-host and apparently she did a really good job.
