On "Undercovers"

I saw Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World tonight. It was awesome. I don't think my brain was capable of handling the rapid translations between romantic comedy and sweet action flick, so it just slapped a stupid grim on my face and made me feel a bottomless well of sadness that caused me to curse my blink reflex.

Anyway, that's not what I came to talk to you about. I want to talk to you about NBC's upcoming show "Undercovers." Or "The Undercovers," I wasn't too clear on that after the five minute trailer they slapped as a time waster in front of the regular trailers and in between Coke Zero ads.

Imagine if Mr. & Mrs. Smith had worked together from the beginning instead of trying to kill eachother. Better yet, imagine a T.V. remake of the movie Undercover Blues, accept it doesn't have Dennis Quaid or a baby or even young Dave Chapel. Now make the couple of reactivated former CIA agents black.

Essentially, it's Tyler Perry's Casino Royal.
