America's Next Top Model (Cycle 7) - 7x11 "The Girl Who Becomes America's Next Top Model"

CariDee won, news which deserves hosannahs -- but what else is there to say about the episode? That the editing was particularly noxious (e.g. the ridiculously brief (i.e. less than a second) cut to CariDee's hands during the final judging)? That the show was nice enough to string Melrose along so that she believed she had a chance to win the competition? That no one remembers Eugena already? That the only way the show could create suspense over the final decision is a history of judging so arbitrary and capricious that I couldn't shake the feeling that they'd go with the irrational choice of Melrose? That this was the most boring cycle so far, and is only saved from being the worst cycle by Eva, Yaya, et al from season 3?

And so on, and so forth.

Indie rating: The Knife - "Silent Shout"
