The Best Years Premieres Tonight

So, I must admit. I never watched Degrassi or, rather, I never watched it regularly and I certainly haven’t watched in recent years. However, Degrassi creator Aaron Martin has a new show permiering tonight and I’m thinking about giving it a whirl. Plus I know I have several fans of The N shows reading, so [...]

BB8 Houseguests & Twist…

YAY! CBS has finally released the list of people who will be in the house this year! Not to mention this year’s “twist”… only I’m not as excited about that. I really prefer it when we have complete strangers in the house. This twist will guarantee tension but I prefer classic BB tension to built [...]

They can’t take away his skills…

Casting News: So, J’Doh apparently got himself a fancy new role or something. Some little birdie (or everyone on the Internet) might have whispered it in my ear. I’m happy for him. I stick by my original opinion of Moonlight, though. Until I’ve seen that Greenwalt has worked a miracle on what he inherited, I [...]

I Know, You Know

Know what I just got at Target??? PSYCH, SEASON 1 YAY!!! Of course, I didn’t realize it came out this week even though we (holly96, tarfrimmer, and I) were JUST talking about the other day. So, I kinda fail as a Psych fan and TV whore. But, whatever, I have it and I’m watching James [...]

Postin’, Blockquote Style

Commentin’ on TV, spoiler-free style: On the Lot A decent episode but that’s probably because we’re back to the talented directors. However this has become watch-while-I’m-doing-other-things TV for me. That’s probably not what they were hoping for, eh? The guest judges continue to actually add to the show whereas Carrie and Garry can barely remember [...]

Classic Appa!

Things that are awesome today: My friend’s son hurt his foot (not the awesome part) so he’s here at the office and watching Avatar on his little DVD player. Needless to say, it’s been a morning of Avatar “breaks” for me! Age of Love I talked about this episode yesterday but I didn’t really get [...]

I like to eat.

First up, y’all I can’t get over how much I’m loving Age of Love. Maybe I spoke too soon about that guilty pleasure thing because this is a show where I feel like I should feel guilty for getting such a kick out of it. NBC offered to send out the second episode for screening [...]

I’m gonna throw you in my DeLorean and gun it to 88.

Movietime: Finally got to see Knocked Up yesterday and it’s just as hilarious as everyone says. The first real comedy I’ve seen in a long time. You know a movie is good when it’s been out for a few weeks and it’s still packed during a Saturday matinee. Even when it’s skin-meltingly hot here, like [...]

Video-Gamers Anonymous?

The subject of an email discussion currently happening in my inbox at work: Is video-game addiction a mental disorder? Some highlights of the discussion: Is this just a new way for parents to blame someone else for their lack of control over their kids? Will this open Pandora’s box in our justice system allowing people [...]

Big Brother is Back!

I generally hate the term “guilty pleasure” because there are very few things I feel guilty about enjoying. I’ve never understood why, just because the majority have decided they don’t like something, it has to mean that I should feel guilty because I do like it. Different strokes, different folks. Then there’s Big Brother. I [...]

I looked a lot better when the day started.

Happy second day of summer! I’m t-t-tired but it’s Friday and this makes me h-h-happy. It’s possible that I feel this way because I started the day with hot Krispy Kreme donuts. YUM! TV commentary for the shows I watched last night is up first: Traveler I don’t really know why but I don’t have [...]

I obviously wasn’t drinking out of the same cup…

I didn’t watch all of my shows last night but I did watch two I felt most likely to get spoiled on today, So You Think You Can Dance and Top Chef. As it turns out, these are the two that I didn’t discuss much last week so don’t be too surprised if a little [...]

The only thing really scary about it was that it could’ve gone on longer.

Why is Supernatural fandom imploding? DON’T answer that. It was rhetorical. Not to mention, if you spoil me, I’ll have to kill you and that’d kinda put a kink in my plans to not go to prison for the rest of my life. The vague freakouts were ok but, since the posts seem to be [...]

Random!

People, what is up with me being so busy lately? It’s summer, things are supposed to slow down and be laid back at this time! (LIE! It’s the end of our fiscal year so it’s ALWAYS busy at this time despite school traffic being very light.) Anyway. As you can probably tell, I’m busy and [...]

My father is Bob Barker.

My local NBC affiliate is pissing me off. We have a tornado warning in the area and, yes, it is important that people pay attention but do we really need the weather guy to dissect it for 20 FUCKING minutes?! Seriously. He’s been talking so long that the storm has started to dissipate… GRRR. For [...]

Is 40 the new 20?

Confession time. I am not generally opposed to reality shows but if there are any that I dismiss out of hand it’s the dating ones. Especially if the premise has the show ending witih a marriage propopsal. It’s all way too fake for me. Kinda like dating online (don’t get me wrong, I don’t think [...]

VM T-shirts for Invisible Children

Can someone tell me how I ended up with one swollen foot? Good thing all my friends are out of town because I have no excuses not to go home and chill out on the couch in an effort to get the swelling down. I’d like it to just go away but, with my current [...]

A question for the floor.

Ok, I have a bunch of TV to post about and I still have to catch up on some of last night’s shows before tonight’s Pirate Master, So You Think You Can Dance, and Studio 60. However, this post has nothing to do with any of that! Has anyone reading ever ordered a shirt from [...]
