'The Ex List' premiere: Waxing indignant

Posted on

Exlistpremier_lI know I’m supposed to be grateful that I live in a country where a woman can talk about her “Gandhi” wax job, on CBS of all places, but it freaked me out on Friday’s premiere of The Ex List (watch the episode here, read EW’s official review of the show here). Also probably not helping: Vivian (Alexandra Breckenridge) lifting up her dress to show off her Gandhi to her skeptical friend Bella (Grey’s Anatomy‘s Elizabeth Reaser, pictured). Should I feel guilty that I wouldn’t be a good enough friend to look?

The wax debate aside, how did you feel about the The Ex List? I think Friday is a good night for it — it fills that escapist-yet-relatively-smart void left by the cancelation of ABC’s Men in Trees. Even though I’m not 100 percent sold on the regular cast, I like that Bella’s psychic-induced quest to find the Mr. Right she’s already dated — and marry him within a year or face a lifetime alone — should allow for some hot guest stars. (Eric Balfour’s never done it for me, but he came close with that punk look in the premiere.) I’ll keep taping. For now. As long as it stays on Fridays following Ghost Whisperer.
