Oh. Bother.

By Robyn

I don't even know how to review Tuesday's show. I felt like I was watching bad, recycled outtakes from last year -- beginning with Paula's cartoon "rat" routine. The judges seem bored and tired. As did the talent pool. And only one real crazy loon to speak of.

The "pre-Hollywood" shows are supposed to be the crème de la crème of Idol. You know, the outtakes they flood us with all season long... If Tuesday night's opening episode was any indication, it's going to be a long run 'til May. So much for starting strong.
