It's Jonathan's World, We Just Watch In Disgust

Best quote so far from this season of "Blow Out": On the birth of his newborn baby, Jonathan says, "That kid is worth all the hair product in the world."

However, I did see on a preview that during a weepfest at the shrink's office (naturellement) he sobs, "I'm so over me." Well, you maybe over you, Jonathan, but I'm not. Say what you will about this man's ridiculous monomania, he gives damn good t.v.

On the episode about Jonathan shilling Jonathan Product at the Sundance Film Festival (naturellement), he kept sobbing about how awesome it was doing the hair of "an Oscar winner." Having missed the beginning of the episode, I tried to figure out who on earth he could be referring to. His usual "celebrity" name-drop is Lisa Rinna, but I'm fairly certain she's never won an Academy Award. So who could it be? Halle Berry? Jessica Lange? Dare I hope it...could it be Cher? Nope. It was Marlee Matlin. Now, I don't want to be mean, but seriously, Marlee Matlin is about as far down on the D-List as you can go and still be affiliated with the Oscars. She's like two notches below Marisa Tomei. She's the Lisa Rinna of Academy winners. Oh, stop. Don't look at me like that! Just because she's deaf doesn't mean she gets honorary A-List status. I don't make the rules, people. Don't beat the messenger.

I, too, have only love for the ever-mezmerizing Jonathan...I knew this season of "Blow Out" would be a winner when, in the first four minutes of the new season, he had already had one tantrum and a weepy breakdown about being "just a kid, man,....stuff like this doesn't happen to guys like me." Oh, but they do!
