With April Fool’s Day arriving Thursday, it’s only right that we take a look at the five most foolish things we’ve seen on TV this season.


The Jay Leno Show (and NBC’s decision to eliminate 10 p.m. ET dramas) — No need to elaborate — this may actually go down as the most foolish decision in network-TV history.

Is there anything the internet can’t do? It’ll take something that no one asked for, give it to them, and then make you realize you wanted it. It will take two elements of the universe that have never been mentioned in the same sentence, breed them, and make a beautiful offspring.


Case in point: Lil’ Wayne meets the theme from The Office. If you’re anything like me, you’ve gotten to the point where you’ve heard the latter so much, you use your DVR to fast forward through The Office‘s opening credits. After hearing this, that should no longer be the case.

If you missed this episode, you didn’t miss much.

At one point in the last episode, Joel mockingly told Julia that “Only a Braverman can criticize another Braverman”, but anyone could criticize this episode, which saw most of the characters acting irrational and silly for no apparent reason.


It all started when Sarah illogically pressured Julia and Joel to hire Amber as their babysitter for “date night”. Later on, when they politely canceled, Sarah guilted her sister into changing her mind by telling her that Amber was sad about it and the “go-to girl of babysitting” in their old neighborhood. This was all a lie, because Sarah herself doubted her daughter. Despite the fact that she made vulgar accusations about her brother in front of the rest of the family and smoked a cigarette as she told Haddie to lie to her parents because “they’re like termites”, Amber did turn out to be a good babysitter. While making “paper turtles” with Sydney, she even noticed that her mother was sneaking around outside, trying to check up on them.

Now that Captain Kirk is almost 80, I’ll go ahead and confess to being a true Shatner fan, even if I’ve never been a Trekkie, never seen Boston Legal, never cared for the Priceline commercials, and found that my only favorite Shatner moment was he and Will Smith getting high on laughing gas during an episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.


I’m not sure what’s funnier: Shatner himself making fun of Star Trek or Will Smith making fun of Star Trek. Either way, when Shatner grabs Alfonso Ribeiro and says “Scotty you’re…black!”, it’s hysterical.

Have you recently bought a high definition television set and are not sure what all the fuss is about? Well stop worrying, the fuss has been justified.


On Sunday, the Discovery Channel debuted Life, the breathtaking new 11-part nature documentary that serves as de facto sequel series to the equally stunning Planet Earth. Unlike Earth, which focuses on terrains and ecosystems, Life takes a deep look at the wide variety of life on our planet and the fascinating behavior it often displays.


Every shot of the series makes you stop and wonder how it was accomplished, and the documentary even contains footage of wildlife behavior that has never been caught on film before.


The above clip showcases the first known footage of Komodo dragons on a hunt as they take down a water buffalo, and it’s nothing short of incredible. For the full experience, be sure to check it out Sundays on the Discovery Channel.
