Weirdly enough, every one of tonight's wannabe photos looks better than any photo of any of those pretty-but-average giantesses who "cycled" through Tyra Land before.... The most interesting women are the most trouble, of course.
To love the series, it helps to be exactly Spike TV's target market - a young guy who, when he can't be out drinking beer and throwing up with his friends, loves nothing more than to sit in front of a giant-screen TV doing all of the above.
What the series gains this season by giving us more history and more compelling storylines, it loses by repeating some of its, er, epic mistakes. Again, no battle scenes - some of the most important in all of history - are shown.
So, two quantum physi cists walk into a bar and one says to the other, "It's 10 p.m. Do you know what time it is?" If you love that joke, or if you even understand that joke, have I got a fifth season for you.
Tonight, through the miracle of modern medicine, the show comes roaring back with a plot that includes the, er, trauma of Seattle Grace Hospital being downgraded from the number two facility in the state to the number 12.
Not that the show will be everyone's English cup of tea, but there are enough "A" list Hollywood stars (making fun of themselves) each week to bring in even the most easily offended, but curious, viewers.
