Week in Review: Vulture Gives Back

We warned you about the Comedy Hit of 2009, treated your ears to some of the finest country singing ever to come from a cast member of the original Star Trek, explained the difference between our two favorite shows, and gave Philip Roth the Friars Club roast he never had. Additionally, we politely refrained from explicitly calling any of the following people crazy this week: Charlie Daniels, Rolling Stones fans, J.K. Rowling, Artie Lange, and Ben Silverman (who really is crazy if he doesn't green-light MILF Island posthaste). You're welcome, everybody!

We told you where to find the original version of Jason Castro's "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and, even though a few of his fans didn't like it, we said what needed to be said about David Archuleta's performance. We helped you decide which Western Conference NBA team to root for at the Tony awards and saved you from reading a thousand-page George Clooney New Yorker profile, all while working to reunite Errol Morris with long-lost friend Tony Kornheiser.

First, we called attention to the important matter of Uwe Boll's crimes against cinema and told you how to help (it's not our fault the petition didn't work). Next, we put a spotlight on the plight of poor New Yorker dance critic Joan Acocella, who was forced to write about Dancing With the Stars. We praised the noble efforts of one selfless filmmaker, and called for the humane treatment of movie critics. Also, we bravely interviewed Patrick Stewart who threatened to kneecap us.
