This is one heck of a good news for me. Because you know what this means?

Kristen Bell is back on TV!!!

Okay, you can go and argue with me that she never really left TV because after the awesome Veronica Mars was canceled, she moved to Heroes and after they killed her character there, she is now in Gossip Girl as Gossip Girl – the voiceover character. But you know what, I don’t count her stint on Gossip Girl because even if she gives great voiceover in that show, that’s just what she is there – a voiceover. I want to see her acting. So, this news made me so excited.

I’m not really familiar with Don Cheadle’s works but I’m sure I know him from somewhere. I’m sure I’ve seen some of his shows. (Sorry, I’m too lazy to go check his Wikipedia page.) I hope he’ll have great chemistry with Kristen Bell. Not that chemistry – the other one, the great partnership kind of chemistry.

According to Showtime, the new comedy is a scathing look at Marty (Cheadle), a self-loathing management consultant from a top-tier firm who is never above using any means necessary to get his way with and for his clients. Bell will play Jeannie Van Der Hooven, a razor-sharp, Ivy-League graduate who works at Marty’s firm. Sounds really interesting and looks like I’ll be hearing snarky, witty dialogues from Kristen. I miss that so much.

I’m so looking forward to this. Please, House of Lies, don’t disappoint me. Be amazing.

If only I get some news that Jason Dohring will also have a new show, that would make my day really complete.

He is his school’s “obligatory psychotic jackass.” Yes, he can be a good friend but once you crossed over his bad side, be warned, for he will torment you every single day. He’s a freakin’ asshole that he will not think twice of swinging a crowbar and bashing your headlights. Yeah, he is like that.

“And let’s not forget Logan Echolls.
Every school has an obligatory psychotic jackass.
He’s ours.”


But what exactly drives this person to be this kind of jackass? People may think he is living a privileged life but if you look closely, this seemingly perfect life is full of cracks – cracks so huge that it can crash anybody’s world. His girlfriend died. His mother jumped off a bridge and took her own life. His long abusive father is an adulterer and a murderer. Now, he is Logan, a tormented and tortured soul. Yes, he is damaged, but is he damaged beyond repair? Is he an un-reformable bad boy?


“And then, there’s bachelor number three. He’s got it all. Motive. Access.
Looks like an evil-doer, smells like an evil-doer.
But surprisingly, not so much.”

In his crazy life, he met Veronica – the person he loves the most. He was his girlfriend’s best friend and he was her boyfriend’s best friend. They were The Fab Four. But Lilly’s death changed everything. He started to hate her but, he cannot hate her forever and ended up falling in love with her.

But life is not always colorful in LoVe-Land for these two star-crossed lovers are so opposite that they clash most of the time. You just can’t combine Logan’s learned hedonism with Veronica’s unrealistic expectations and trust issues.

“And you know what? I’m not built to stand on the sidelines. And I think we have a choice.
I think we can take a tough, but survivable amount of pain now…or stay together and deal with unbearable pain later. So I vote for the pain now.
But I’m always here… if you need anything.
But you never need anything.”

They get together and have a few months of contentment but once the veil is lifted, reality smacks them hard in the face and they break up. Too jaded for each other, too broken for anyone else. Can’t trust each other, can’t love anyone else, can’t be alone. How can you even begin to describe a relationship like this? I have no idea.

But one thing’s for sure , their relationship is EPIC.

Logan: I thought our story was epic, you know, you and me.
Veronica: Epic how?
Logan: Spanning years and continents. Lives ruined, bloodshed. Epic.
Veronica: Come on. Ruined lives? Bloodshed? You really think a relationship should be that hard?
Logan: No one writes songs about the ones that come easy.

A shout-out to the adorable, charming, gorgeous and talented Jason Dohring – the person who brought us Logan Echolls and the person who made “psychotic jackass” looked so appealing.
