– Michigan vs. Virginia Tech.

Work It
– So, about this Bosom Buddies knock-off … Do not consider this a recommendation to watch a good show. Consider it a recommendation to watch a show that’s so ridiculously silly you have to watch it at least once.

Taboo: Secret Lives
– Wow. Among the people living secret lives are a married (and successful) businessman who pretends to be homeless, a psych student who pretends to be a blue cat and a woman who pretends to be a paraplegic dependent on a wheelchair.
