2005 Geekies: Non-Technical Awards

It's time for TVGeekSpeak.com's Second Annual Geekies Awards. On this first day, we'll get some of the smaller awards out of the way.

Least welcomed newcomer: She’s not here yet, but just the mere announcement that a syndicated, 5-hour weekly helping of Rachael Ray is marinating for fall is enough to put me off of my food.

Most welcomed newcomer: Jason Lee and My Name is Earl. Trailer trash TV done right- with warmth, intelligence- and laughs. Bravo to NBC for taking a chance on this one.

Most disturbing trend: Watching sci-fi and supernatural Lost knockoffs multiply like pod-people on the planet Zorqon. Well, honestly, nobody really watched them. They suck. No surprise there.

Show I wish more people knew about: I’d say Arrested Development, but that ship has sailed- or, more accurately, sunk. So instead, I’ll opt for Fox’s Prison Break, a moderately watched, well-acted drama which nicely fills the oh-come-on void left by 24’s annual fall hiatus.

What I'd like to see on the tube in 2006: Arrested Development get a new home- preferably on a pay cable network with deep pockets and an appreciation for quality television.

Be gone and stay gone:
• Any comedy on ABC.
• Any medical drama on NBC.
• Any procedural drama on CBS not named CSI.
• Rick Shroder.
• Tony Danza.
• Paula Abdul.
• Any show featuring spouse swapping, home remodeling, or attempted matchmaking.
• Any cable show that features scads of green-screened, unfunny comedians riffing on the greatest week, month, year, decade, or millennium ever.
• WWE.
• MTV.
• Stuart Scott.
• Chris Berman.
• Lame bloggers who insist on shoving their shallow, bitter opinions down the throats of tens of readers.

4 other geekspeak:

  • I'd like to see two things in 2006. First I'd like to see Geekspeak add an email or submission form. Secondily, I'd like the see the Alias spinoff that TV Squad is reporting.

    It might not have the luscious Jennifer Gardner, but who can deny that a show featuring Sark and Sloan wouldn't kick ass. They could get new writers to improve the plot and bring in a whole new suite of hot characters who look awesome when torturing good guys.
