Entertainment Critical's Entertainment Weekly Review for the Week of October 6, 2006

The reviews roll on, with the weekly edition of Entertainment Critical’s Entertainment Weekly Review. This week’s edition, numbered with the nice round figure of 900, has Kate Winslet on the cover. It also has EW pondering “If We Ran Hollywood…”


New & Notes: TV Comedy is Broken: Once again, a brilliant, if not short, article on why sitcoms on TV are flailing around like a chicken without its head. And if you think they are not, just remember, Charlie Sheen became the highest paid comedy star on TV this week.

Spotlight: 10 Things You Don’t Know about James Franco: What can I say? I am a big fan of the Spider-Man movies.

The Must List: #7 (Sarah Paulson on “Studio 60”) and #10 (Saturday TV Funhouse): One is a biting reminder on why SNL isn’t funny anymore and the other shows you how funny SNL was.

DVD Review: X-Men: The Last Stand: This movie was not nearly as bad as everyone thought it was. It’s no X2, but it certainly was no Hulk/Elektra either.
Must Watch of the Week: Lost: You said it, EW!


What Kate Winslet Knows/Hollywood vs. Women: I applaud EW for taking on the whole “Hollywood slights Women” thing, but as a man, I am not that invested in this battle. This could be a highlight or a lowlight honestly, but right now, it’s on my lowlight list.

“The Office” Secret Scene: What? Angela was pregnant last season, but they decided to excise that storyline? Noooooooooooo!

Music Review: The Killers: Having just seen the Killers live last weekend and been exposed to more of their newer music through MTV and VH1, they are dangerously reaching a level of personal overexposure. EW’s grade of a C to their new album doesn’t help their cause.

A fairly average week for EW. None of the main articles captured my attention and none of the reviews were particularly engrossing. This week, EW, like The Killers, gets a C.
