Picks and Pans Review: PEOPLE Staffers Recommend ... What We're Watching During the Strike

Posted on

MY SO-CALLED LIFE (DVD) Canceled by the same network geniuses battling the writers’ guild, MSCL’s 19 episodes are like potato chips—can’t consume just one. Get the new DVD box set and succumb to a marathon of authentic teen angst, secret crushes and pre-cell-phone gossiping. —ALLISON ADATO

PROJECT RUNWAY (Bravo) The fourth-season sew-off has been fierce, as hotshot contestant Christian would say, thanks to delectable challenges like creating couture from candy (a Twizzlers dress—yum). Still craving more? Check out Runway’s Canadian version on YouTube. Iman hosts! —MICHELLE TAUBER

JON & KATE + 8 (TLC) The Gosselins raise 3-year-old sextuplets and 7-year-old twins. Fascinatingly intimate, and it sure makes you feel better about your workload. —SAMANTHA MILLER

FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS (DVD) Not up for American Idol belters? Try HBO’s wry comedy-with-music about a New Zealand folk duo. —TOM GLIATTO

MYTHBUSTERS (Discovery) So is it easy to shoot fish in a barrel? Jamie and Adam test such notions while blowing things up as often as possible. —CYNTHIA WANG

DOGTOWN (National Geographic) Heart-warmer about a no-kill animal shelter that puts pups on the road to adoption. —RENNIE DYBALL
