'Blue Mountain State' Recap: 'One Week' (3.10)

November 10th, 2011 2:33am EST
Blue Mountain State
Art imitates life in this week's Blue Mountain State: the program gets a TV show made about it - and Coach Daniels puts a golf club through his TV upon seeing the end product. Ouch.

One can't really blame him, though. "One Week" is no "Hard Knocks" and this is no ESPN or NFL Network. It's full of bombastic narration and whoever wrote said narration is clearly interested in sucking up to offensive coordinator/coach in waiting Gilday (Anthony Lemke). But the device of sticking a camera in everyone's faces gives us the hilarity of them trying to come off much better than they all ar...

Blue Mountain State: Season Two (Lionsgate)

Spike's original series Blue Mountain State is one of my guilty pleasures. It's vastly inappropriate and doesn't always make sense, but it doesn't pretend to be anything other than a hilariously good time. In season two, slacker QB Alex Moran (Daytime Emmy winner Darin Brooks) is stuck trying to keep egotistical "star player" Ra...

'Blue Mountain State' Recap: 'Blackout' (3.05)

October 20th, 2011 2:40am EDT
Blue Mountain State
It's time for a big rivalry game on Blue Mountain State - at least until a blackout forces a postponement and some ill-advised off-the-field competition.

This allows Alex to confront the girl he lost his virginity to, who's now a cheerleader for the rival school, dating the captain of their football team. Thad, of course, vehemently dislikes his opposite number, and so it comes to pass that there's a beer pong challenge thrown down between the four of them. Unsurprisingly, the rules of the game change about every two minutes, depending on what seems like a good idea at the time. Ev...

'Blue Mountain State' Review: 'The Peak' (3.03)

October 6th, 2011 2:37am EDT
Blue Mountain State
This week's Blue Mountain State teaches us a proper lesson in a tasteless way: popularity is fleeting.

For a guy who was in his own version of hell at the beginning of this season, Alex Moran has come a long way in a short time -- he's riding high this week, having thrown seven touchdowns in an upset of the top-ranked team in the country. And with victory, everyone suddenly wants to be your best friend. "Alex played awesome today, which means I care about him now," Thad tells his teammates, perfectly summing up college popularity in a nutshell.

Reveling in the attention, Alex be...

'Blue Mountain State' 3.01 'The Captain' Review

September 22nd, 2011 2:39am EDT
Blue Mountain State
Mayhem is back in session at Blue Mountain State. It takes about thirty seconds for the show to resume complete insanity on all fronts, which is what we watch it for, isn't it? I mean, this show is about football as much as Celebrity Deathmatch was about boxing.

How did Thad Castle become ineligible for the BMS football team? Well, it involves blabbing to reporters, a ton of cocaine, and something about possibly declaring himself for the NFL Draft. Thankfully, we only have to see him cry for a couple of minutes, because that's really uncomfortable.

Coach Daniels is back on decent t...

Interview: Talking 'Blue Mountain State' With Darin Brooks

December 15th, 2010 8:40pm EST
Darin Brooks - Blue Mountain State
Yes, I know you're sad that there's no new Blue Mountain State tonight. However, I can ease your pain: Alex Moran himself, Darin Brooks, dropped in for a chat this afternoon. Continuing from our conversation in October, we discuss Alex's misadventures in the first part of season two, how they could possibly get any worse, and just how much longer we might have with the BMS football team.

The last time we talked, you mentioned that Alex was in a lot of trouble this season. Right now, he's certainly in it - he's been high out of his mind in one episode, and the next week he slept with ...

'Blue Mountain State' 2.07 'Debra' Review

December 2nd, 2010 2:36am EST
Blue Mountain State 2.07
Is Alex still high from his marijuana-fueled escapades last week? That would seem a good defense when he finds out (after the fact, of course) that his latest bedmate is his coach's ex-wife, now the dean's wife. You can't really go much more wrong than that, unless you manage to burn the university down, and even then I think it would be a close call.

Watching the first part of this episode is like watching an impending accident; you know something horrible is going to happen, but you also know that you can't do anything except cringe. I've taken to thinking of the guys of Blue Mou...

Denise Richards Is 'Inappropriate'

October 20th, 2010 11:10pm EDT
Denise Richards
Former Bond girl Denise Richards has joined the cast of risque TV comedy "Blue Mountain State" for the raunchy series' second season.

The actress will play the sex-mad ex-wife of a football coach who seduces quarterback Alex Moran (Darin Brooks) on the "Animal House"-inspired show set on the campus of fictional Blue Mountain State college.

Her ex on the show is played by former "Hill Street Blues" regular Ed Marinaro, a former running back for the Minnesota Vikings.

Richards tells the USA Today newspaper, "It's a fun, over-the-top show. I enjoyed pushing the envelope, being a little inap...
