Ern’s picks for round 2 of Twop’s Tubey Awards

  • Best new show- Girls (honorable mention to Homeland)
  • Best returning show- Breaking Bad (for the finale alone)
  • Best drama- Breaking Bad (but almost picked Game of Thrones)
  • Best almost-romantic-but-not-quite relationship- Nick Miller and Jess Day, New Girl (I wanted to pick like ten of these couples)
  • Best non-romantic friendship- Abed and Troy, Community (definitely NOT Walter and Jesse, TWOP, but this was a hard category to pick from too)
  • Best Family Relationship- George and Tessa, Suburgatory
  • Best Guest Star- Carrie Preston, The Good Wife
  • Best Musical Moment on a Scripted Show- Teach Me How to Understand Christmas, Community (I thought of this before even reading the categories)
  • Best Musical Moment on a Reality Show- Lindsay Pavao’s “Say Aah” on The Voice
  • Worst Reality TV Moment- Tyra Banks sucks Tyson Beckford's thumb in her Modelland reenactment (America's Next Top Model). So many of these choices were deserving, but I still have nightmares about that one.
  • Favorite actor- Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad. The boy needs more recognition for playing such an unintelligent character so convincingly and so that he’s the heart of the show. He’s like the angry, criminal Forrest Gump. There needs to be a spin-off where Jesse hunts child killers (HM: Matt LeBlanc, Episodes)
  • Favorite actress-  Claire Danes, Homeland “My Kingdom for a green pen!”
  • Worst Crime Against Fashion- Kurt's midriff baring, one shoulder poncho sweater thing (Glee)
  • Most egregious product placement- Disneyland (Modern Family)
  • Most Unwelcome New Character- Rory, Glee. Hate to say it. Love you though, Damian.
  • Most Welcome New Character- Jessica Tang (Southland). I bet Leeard picks J’aquen Hagar. Level of knowledge that I probably didn’t spell that right = 10/10. Level of interest = 0.
  • Most Appalling Reality Star- All of them, but I gave it to Paris Hilton (The World According to Paris), because she wasn’t even entertaining enough to get viewers.
  • Most Appealing Reality Star- Out of the choices they gave us, Phillip Phillips (American Idol). They didn’t give us much variety though.
  • Worst single episode of a comedy- "Extraordinary Merry Christmas" (Glee). I couldn’t believe that episode.
  • Worst Single Episode of a Drama- "This Is The Way The World Ends" (Dexter)
  • Supporting Actor/Actress deserving of a starring role- Jewel Staite (The L.A. Complex and Firefly)
  • Best Reality Smackdown- Nikki calls Lindsay out on having a fake emotional moment (The Glee Project)
  • Most wrongfully underused character- Jaime Lannister (Game of Thrones). But, as someone who has read the first three books, I understand why.
  • Most cringeworthy moment- Jim Bob Duggar tries to evangelize to an atheist Scottish street performer (19 Kids and Counting). I saw this on youtube. Sooooo awkward.
  • Best on-screen death scene- Gus Fring (Breaking Bad) No freaking contest.
  • Most Ludicrous Plotline- Kristina drove three hours to stop her niece of legal age from having consensual sex with an unwed city council candidate (Parenthood). I picked this, because I was the angriest about it. But everything on that list was also valid, especially Sue’s pregnancy.
  • Worst Payoff- Mona is A, or is she? (Pretty Little Liars) Sorry, I hated it. The whole reveal, Mona’s acting, the fact that people associated with the show TOLD US it wasn’t going to be Mona, and how predictable it was.
Also, I'm one season through Supernatural. So far, it's cheesy, but everyone assures me it gets better. I liked the finale. I know lots of y'all have been wanting one of us to get into this show for a long time. Dean > Sam.


  1. And Jess > Dean. Always always always.


  2. Supernatural doesn't really get good till the fourth season, but seasons four and five make the wait worth it. But seasons six and seven are pretty bad, so either quit once you finish season five or prepare yourself for the show getting very good for a while and then quickly going downhill.

    1. THANK YOU. I've been wanting someone to definitively tell me which seasons were good. I had heard it goes downhill, and I wanted to know when the goodness stops.

  3. Best New Show: Homeland
    Best Returning Show: Louie (I love Breaking Bad but I thought Louie was mostly terrific throughout.)
    Best Drama: Breaking Bad
    Best almost-romantic-but-not-quite relationship- Nick Miller and Jess Day, New Girl
    Best non-romantic friendship- Abed and Troy, Community
    Best Family Relationship: The Bravermans (Parenthood)
    Best Guest Star: Enrico Colantoni (Person of Interest)
    Best Musical Moment on a Scripted Show- Teach Me How to Understand Christmas, Community
    Favorite actor: John Noble (Fringe) (Honestly, I love all the actors...but I just love love love the way John Noble plays Walter Bishop.)
    Favorite actress- Claire Danes, Homeland
    Most egregious product placement- Disneyland (Modern Family)
    Most Unwelcome New Character- Rory, Glee
    Most Welcome New Character: Rebekah (The Vampire Diaires)
    Worst single episode of a comedy: Something from Glee, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory (loved most of the episodes later into the season), or Two and a Half Men
    Worst single episode of a drama: Mostly Dexter. (Sorry, I don't remember the titles of any of the shows I
    Supporting Actor/Actress deserving of a starring role: Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead)
    Best Reality Smackdown- Nikki calls Lindsay out on having a fake emotional moment (The Glee Project)
    Most Wrongly Underused Character: Elijah (The Vampire Diaries)
    Most Cringeworthy Moment: Debra and Dexter dream kiss (Dexter) (I don't care if they are not blood related or they haven't really spent much time together. It's sick no matter what. End of story.)
    Best On-Screen Death Scene: Gus Fring (Breaking Bad)
    Rosie Larsen's murderer revealed (The Killing)

    Supernatural does get better after Season 1 and is consistently great throughout season 4. (I'm also catching up on Supernatural and am on Season 4 so far..haha) Yey! I decided to catch up on Fall Shows this summer and New Year shows this winter. Spring Break will probably be Teen Wolf and Suits...just want to get current good TV out of the way!

    1. Can't fault you for voting Louie in any "best" category. I fall in love with that show more every week. We tend to remember episode titles from the posts we do, haha. AGREE with Elijah being underused and the Deb/Dexter kiss. The next season where Deb is all in love with him is gonna be disgusting if they don't drop that.

      I'm liking season two of Supernatural a lot better so far.
      Ugh, Teen Wolf. I know I should watch it because Leeard and others say it's good, but I'm just not interested. Well, that's what I said about Louie until I made myself watch maybe. Never judge a show by its name, channel, or subject matter. Anything well-executed can be good.

    2. Supernatural, Nikita, The Vampire Diaries makes me love CW. Let's hope Arrow and the other upcoming series can do that (think they have better dramas than any of the networks.)

    3. better promising new dramas*

    4. This may sound lame to you guys, but I am absolutely avoiding all trailers for new shows, descriptions, and clips until the pilots air. I feel like seeing them ruins the pilots for me, and my expectations are never right with them. I'll just watch them all, like I usually do, and drop them when they suck.

    5. Heh. Some of the trailers do suck. But my picks are:
      1) Arrow
      2) Revolution
      3) Last Resort
      4) The Following
      5) Vegas
      6) Go On
      7) Nashville
      8) 666 Park Avenue
      9)Animal Practice
      10) The Mob Doctor

      I also chose some of these because I want them to be good. (Not basing all of them through trailers)

    6. Woops forgot The Following wasn't on the Fall Schedule.
      1) Arrow
      2) Revolution
      3) Last Resort
      4) Vegas
      5) Go On
      6) Nashville
      7) 666 Park Avenue
      8)Animal Practice
      9) The Mob Doctor
      10) The Mindy Project

    7. I'm hoping at least 5 of these suck but am hoping it's not Arrow, Revolution, Last Resort, Vegas or Animal Practice. Haha..I don't want to add an insane amount of good new TV shows. (But if they end up being good...I guess I'm stuck with keeping them)
