Ern's picks - Tubey Awards Finals Round Three

Best Unexpected Plot Twist - Vampire Diaries.
There is no way I am putting the plot twists on here in full. No way. They are too great and too spoilery. I’m mad Leeard saw two of them. I’m not picking Supernatural because how is that unexpected? That’s literally the only place Dean hasn’t been. It’s about time. The Dexter one should have happened one season early and I saw it coming. The Mad Men one wasn’t much of a shock either. I don’t watch Sherlock. The Once Upon a Time, Walking Dead, and Fringe ones were good, but can’t compete with the others on the list. Saw the American Horror Story twist coming a mile away, and it wasn’t that original. That leaves The Vampire Diaries and Breaking Bad. The great thing about these twists is not only were they surprising, they will cause repercussions in the shows’ futures. They were game-changers. I think I was shocked by the Breaking Bad twist the most, but I liked the Vampire Diaries one better.

Best “Hell Yeah” Moment - Joan kicks her husband out of the house, lets him know that she never forgot the fact that he raped her, Mad Men
I liked: “There are brave men knocking at our door. Let’s go kill them.” – Game of Thrones, Elena kissing Damon on The Vampire Diaries, Lane punching Pete on Mad Men, Leslie winning the election on Parks and Recreation, Tyrion slapping Joffrey again on Game of Thrones. I didn’t see: The Castle kiss, The One Live to Live death, and the Sherlock fake. I didn’t like: The Supernatural one. How was that a “hell yeah” moment? The one I picked was the one that actually made me say, “Hell yeah” out loud, so that’s the winner. That needed to be addressed. Plus, I really love Joan.

Best Pop Culture Reference - Mr. Garrison explains the plot of Game of Thrones, South Park
This was the funniest one left in the categories. That show NEEDS to be explained. Plus, it’s classic inappropriate Mr. Garrison.

Most Overrated Show - Modern Family
At this point, I don’t think 30 Rock, Glee, How I Met Your Mother, and True Blood are getting much praise. I like Girls, Mad Men, and The Vampire Diaries more than most people. It comes down to Big Bang Theory and Modern Family for me. Modern Family gets more praise, and this season was just okay. I’d call it repetitive, but since I’ve said it before, that would be ironic.

Most Underrated Show - Parks and Recreation
This was a much harder pick. I strongly considered Awkward. (for being on MTV, this show has some substance), Cougar Town (for being adorable), Justified (for excellent writing and dialogue), Vampire Diaries (for being the best show on TV after Breaking Bad), and Parenthood (for general excellence). I picked Parks and Rec because its last two seasons have been stellar and I feel like no one I know watches it. It is shunned with awards, and I don’t think anyone knows how funny and sweet it is.

Best Competitive Reality Show - The Voice
Ugh, I hate them all. I can remotely stand So You Think You Can Dance and The Voice. The Voice keeps me longer. I usually drop out somewhere in the middle of these shows’ seasons.

Best Candid Reality Show - Dance Moms
Intervention is not on here. POO. Hoarders is funny, but it’s mostly the same thing every time. Someone hoards. Breaking Pointe wasn’t as good as it should have been. It was too tame. You know what’s not tame? My pick.

Best Reality Smackdown - Nikki calls Lindsay out on having a fake emotional moment, The Glee Project
I didn’t see most of these because scripted TV is too good to waste my time with reality TV. But Nikki telling Lindsay to get real was appreciated.

Most Egregiously Offensive Reality TV Show - Toddlers & Tiaras
Now, here’s my category! Toddlers & Tiaras beats Jersey Shore by a nose. Those kids don’t have a choice. The Jersey chodes do.

Best WTF Moment - Zou Bisou Bisou, Mad Men
Of course the Breaking Bad death was in the running for me, but I still can’t get Zou Bisou Bisou out of my head. It took me a LONG time to decide if I liked it. I was like, “What is she doing?” It was the definition of WTF.

Worst WTF Moment - Deb loves Dexter, Dexter
The way I picked this was asking myself which moment I would eliminate/take back from the show. I nearly picked the Grey’s Anatomy death that made me so sad. But I think the Dexter thing is the worst, most unnecessary thing to happen to any show I’ve ever seen. I don’t give a crap about how Santana came out of the closet. We’ve had enough of those scenes on Glee.

Best Scene-Stealing Supporting Character - Castiel, Supernatural
I asked myself, “Who steals the most scenes?” I almost picked Castiel, Schmidt, Rebekah, and Jaqen, but I think James Van Der Beek makes his show. So I was gonna pick him. But then I picked Castiel because he’s cute. I hit the button on that. So I have to be honest with you guys on what I actually wanted to win this one, haha. I actually don’t like Colin Sweeney on The Good Wife that much!

Most Annoying Teenaged Character - Declan, Revenge
I disagree that the following people are annoying: Blaine, Elena, Kurt, Rachel, and Sugar Motta. Sugar is funny. The only time I’ve hated Kurt is when he compared something to “modern-day stoning” when there is still real stoning. Idiot. Joffrey isn’t annoying; he’s detestable. Declan is a useless, un-hot diversion from interesting things on his show.

Favorite Showrunner - Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad
Well, I haven’t met any of them. THAT needs to change. I like Bill Lawrence as a person, but I think the person doing the best job as a showrunner is Vince Gilligan. He refuses to compromise on this show, taking it to dark and moral places. He’s not afraid to try his audience’s patience. He’s teaching us to wait, analyze, and commit to something great again. I love shows that require my patience and brainpower, and then reward me sufficiently. Like LOST.


  1. Out of curiosity, what other TV blogs do you guys read and/or like?

  2. TWOP. Ummm. That's usually it. Sometimes I read Entertainment weekly online, if I'm really bored. My subscription to the magazine ran out a while ago. Huffington post/vulture online isn't bad if the other two don't cover the show. TVLine. You know, the major stuff.

    Really though, we try not to look at these sites before we make a post or watch an episode because we want to stay true to our initial opinions on here and not be swayed by other opinions. We don't read a lot of other TV blogs. I check my faves once every two weeks or so. Leeard mostly only reads TWOP and checks it once a week, except during Tubey awards season. It's better to just watch the show and start writing, if you want to have your own blog.
