Brillandericwatchtv_upfrontOn the heels of last week’s preview of John From Cincinnati, we take a look at a show that is almost as strange, but slightly more accessible — Showtime’s Meadowlands — about a British witness protection program that might be even more of a punishment than staying in the real world.

We go back to HBO to make the inevitable comparison between Flight of the Conchords and Tenacious D, taking a second to admire the work of supporting actress Kristin Schaal.

Kyle XY returns for what looks to be a promising second season, causing Eric to try and out-pretentious Brill in his analysis.

On the news front, CBS throws fans a bone and orders seven episodes of Jericho for midseason, Grey’s Anatomy lets Isaiah Washington know that sometimes "sorry" isn’t good enough, Jeremy Sisto joins the Law & Order force and Kevin Carradine hunts a serial killer on Dexter.

Brill Bundy has spent her entire career covering TV and pop culture. This is what happens when your parents try and limit your viewing habits to three shows a week. Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
