What I’ve Been Thinking

Oh, 2016, you went out with a delicious hissy fit, not a whimper. I don’t know why negative nellies are slamming Mimi’s New Year’s Eve performance. Mariah Carey livened things up with a spectacle sure to top pop culture lists for a decade. Here’s what I’m thinking about that and a few other things on TV.

Mariah Carey Anyone can deliver a forgettable professional performance, but when things went sideways, Mimi embraced the debacle, calling out the sound people while pacing the stage in a glittering flesh-colored onesie. Bless those bewildered backup dancers flailing about with Mimi’s feathers and a can-do spirit as their star went rogue and stopped singing in favor of throwing major shade at whoever she planned to have killed after the show. Our girl was all out of f-cks to give and had no intention of sending an assistant to fetch some more…

The Bachelor stepped on my annual opportunity to mock the SWF parade. One after another, black, brown and biracial beauties stepped out of the limos. Good, we deserve the same right to cry and claw at roses as everyone else. Nick Viall gave sophisticated Rachel the first impression rose. Expect the Dallas attorney to get a lot of airtime this season. What a time to be alive…

Have you ever been in the presence of someone you once loved, but things went awry and it’s not that you hate them now, it’s just it would be unpleasant to be seated right next to them at a wedding. That’s how I feel about the return of Sleepy Hollow tonight. This was my favorite show for so many reasons until the rug was yanked out from under heavily invested fans with an insulting send-off. (Abbie Mills was not a mystical negro!) I’m still bereft and hostile. Instead of a giddy mass viewing with the Sleepy Sisters on Team Ichabbie, I’ll drink alone in a dark room out of a sense of duty and curiosity. Sigh. Sleepy Hollow’s fourth season begins tonight at 9/8c on Fox…

I am intrigued about the premiere of Emerald City which debuts tonight. Based on the previews, it looks like a dark, exotic, fantasy show for grown-ups. It airs at 9/8c on NBC…

So what are you thinking about TV? We love to read your clever comments. They don’t appear right away, but we promise to get through them after my crying jag.
