True Blood...we MUST discuss!

I just realized that I haven't yet touched base on this killer season of True Blood!  This season really came out of the gate running didn't it?  Now that we are almost 4 episodes in I don't have to tell you that there will be spoilers so here we go...Tara is a damn vampire who was turned by Pam who is playing a larger role this season so far.  We saw her in a pale yellow sweatsuit with a kiddie design on the top that was a great way to kick off the season...I mean, come on, tough ass Pam in a Holly Hobby looking sweatsuit from a bargain mart, how could that not make your day?

So Tara's a vampire & currently furious with Sookie & Lafayette for turning her & in the last episode she was starving & went to Sam for help.  She cleaned him out of True Blood because she was starving & then he put her in the walk in cooler to sleep for the day & put a sign on it saying it was out of order & not to go in it.  Arlene being nosy of course went in & was added to the list of people who now know about Tara being a vampire & she freaked the hell out when she saw it too.  I cant wait to see what goes down tomorrow night.

Then there's Bill & Eric who are currently in prison for killing Nan & being held by The Authority which is a small committee that is led by Roman Zimojic who is played by Chris Meloni & the committee also includes Barb from Cougar Town!  Anyway, in the beginning we met Eric's sister whom he screwed like crazy so we saw some hot Eric ass which was awesome.  Sis, Eric & Bill were all taken & imprisoned with some other guy who was already there & the prison kind of sucks...Bill & Eric are being totured by these people via intraveinous silver & while in their cells they are occasionally hit with UV blasts as well.  The guys just recently informed Roman that Russel Edgington is still alive & the last episode ended with us seeing what he currently looks like which is freaking disgusting but he's repairing slowly.

Next there's Jessica, Hoyt & Jason to deal with.  In the first episode we saw crazy Steve Newlin at Jason's door as a vampire & he glamoured Jason to get into the house but just as he was about to take a taste of Jason, Jessica showed up & declared that Jason was hers so Steve left.  Jessica has been partying like crazy with the local college kids & having Rock Band parties & flirting & in general taking advantage of being single & of Bill being gone.  Granted she has no clue that he's in any kind of trouble nor does Pam know about Eric but Pam is distraught while Jessica is in the "when the King's away" mode claiming that she's in charge.  So during one of her parties Jason showed up & was obviously hurt when he saw Jessica making out with some guy & he tried to hook up with someone else but couldn't do it.  He told Jessica & she basically told him that she was just helping him out when she said he was hers & that she just liked hooking up with him & didn't want anything more.  So on the Jason side, he tried to repair things with Hoyt but he just dropped about 20 F bombs & basically ran Jason out of his mom's house so I'm not sure if Hoyt is living back there (him & Jessica has a house & she's back at the lair with Bill) or if he was just there helping mama out which he was complaining about doing a lot of lately.

So anyway, that was a ramble for sure but hopefully you get the point & now, what the hell do you think is in store for the rest of the season?  I can't wait to see what happens with Tara, I feel bad for Pam (we've also just started learning her "turning" story) & am wondering if she will go the route of Jessica eventually because someone has to run Fangtasia & Eric's chair just sits there empty.  Sam's girlfriend's daughter just turned into a wolf for the first time & they were hoping she'd be a shifter rather than a wolf so I'm also intrigued with that story line, oh, how could I forget, duh...Alcide said he killed the pack master so technically he's supposed to be the new master but he doesn't want the job.  So long as his hot ass stays on the show I'll be happy!  I'm honestly not that into the Bill/Eric story yet because I'm too confused by it...political intrigue & vampire laws are too much for my head to retain, it is already filled with at least 40 hours of shows per week and it's tricky keeping everything straight.  Tune in tomorrow for the next episode, I for one can't wait to see if Tara takes a shower.

What's on tomorrow, July 1?

Happy July ya'll!

Anger Management...I watched it

So I tuned in to the back to back two episode series premiere of Anger Management last night on FX & also tuned in for the season premiere of Louie so first let me say that I was not disappointed with that at all and I'm really looking forward to this coming season of the show...poor Louie, it's just so honest, I love it.

Now, on to the point...Charlie Sheen's new sitcom Anger Management where Charlie plays a therapist named Charlie.  Is he always so wasted that it's in his contract that his characters must always be named Charlie or what?  Anyway overall I thought the show was funny but I was of course comparing it to Two & a Half Men...probably because I watched a marathon of it for 10 hours on FX prior to this starting & of course it had similarities.  The humor was very similar & raunchy but not quite as witty as Men but I did laugh out loud a couple times during the first episode which is a good sign but the second episode I kind of walked away from 10 minutes in & then missed a few mins in the middle.

The premise is that Charlie is a divorced dad of a tween daughter & he's on good terms with his ex-wife.  He's sleeping with a woman casually who is also a therapist & is played by Selma Blair & I won't share much more about that in case you haven't seen it.  Charlie is a former professional baseball player & he also has anger management issues as well as his patients who he's currently seeing at his home. He runs a therapy group and the people in it as well as Charlie's neighbor offer a lot of comedic variations that work well with Charlie & the rest of the cast.  The second episode was a little more "kitschy sitcom with a message" when a woman from Charlie's past shows up & this whole debacle unfolds & yada yada.  Basically, I'm planning on adding this to the DVR lineup to see how the season plays out & when it's over I'll report back again with my findings.  Until then, check it out for certainly is worth watching.

Chasing UFOs series premiere tonight!

Tonight at 7:00 on Reelz is the 1st season finale of True Justice, up at 8:00 on Disney is the 2nd season premiere of My Babysitter's a Vampire.

Up at 9:00 on TeenNick is the 1st season finale of Breaking From Above, on NGC is the series premiere of Chasing UFOs which also airs another episode after, also at 9 on Reelz is the series premiere of XIII.

In the 10:00 slot on Health is the 1st season finale of Embarrassing Bodies, on SyFy is the 1st season finale of Insane or Inspired and on HBO is the 10th season summer finale of Real Time With Bill Maher.

Real World...Paradise?

I tuned into the brand new season of The Real World: Paradise Found which takes place in St. Thomas about 20 minutes into the first episode.  At 30 minutes later I cannot wait for this to end...I used to love Real World & Road Rules but now I don't see myself continuing to watch this show.  I can't remember the last time I actually made a point to watch a season every week, I guess it was the Real Housewives of my youth but now, it's just idiotic.  These people have been here for 5 minutes & already some guy is in love with some girl, another guy is fighting with some other guy, 1 chick is obnoxiously wasted, some other chick took a dump & didn't flush & not one single person this season is attractive (well except maybe Trey, pictured above).  The house of course is amazing as it always is & especially being that it's in St. Thomas the scenery & property are breathtaking but they take this diamond & fill it full of assholes & all for our entertainment.  Thanks MTV, I'm sure I'll spend at least one Sunday afternoon watching a marathon once I get sucked in by some sex story.  Just by the previews for next week there are already 3 "couples" formed and then the guy with the big spacers in his ears is left all alone.

Man v. Food

The newest show I've started watching on reruns and on Netflix is Man v. Food...I had never seen this show until it was on after an episode of "Best Sandwich in America" which is also hosted by Adam Richman who is the Man going against the food.  I never watched it before because I thought it was more similar to the show where Andrew Zimmern eats weird foods when in actuality it's nothing like that at all!  Adam goes to a city & hits up some local food & then also goes to a place in that city to eat something huge...kind of like John Candy eating the Ol' 96er in Great Outdoors.  

I live in Detroit so I made sure I fired up the Detroit episode on Netflix since I've never heard of any place in the area that serves some sort of giant anything.  First off Adam went to Lafayette & American Coney Islands as all food visitors do (there's history there, Google it if you are curious) and then he went to Slow's which is a newer & killer BBQ joint in a shadier area of Detroit that is now turning around thanks to them.  Last he went to a bar called Mallie's in Southgate where he & a team of 39 others attempted to break their own Guinness world record for the largest burger eaten in 2 hours.  As you can see by the photo the burger was huge, 190 lbs. to be exact & that pic doesn't even include the top bun, another layer of cheese, bacon, lettuce, pickles, onion and tomato!  Click here to see a video of the burger being made & built.  Unfortunately, food won this challenge...the crew of 40 left 30 pounds behind unfinished but I'm pretty sure that Mallie's has since broken their record more than once so they obviously found the right 40 people at some point.  I've never been here but they are known for their burgers...check out their site.

On Tonight

Sorry guys, I didn't get a chance to formally post what's on tonight so please refer to yesterdays brief "what's on tomorrow" post so you don't miss anything! 

I am watching Laguna Beach & I still love it!

So I am currently out at the lake where my friend recently had cable & wifi installed.  He used to have a dish & no internet at all so if we were stuck inside there was nothing to do, especially after the dish got bumped in a storm & only 6 channels came in!  Anyway, I like to have some TV & coffee time in the morning to get my engine going & when I got up he was watching an Underworld movie but as soon as he went out I changed a Laguna Beach (the photo is off my lake "Laguna Beach") marathon. 

I miss this show...the drama of rich kids is like the drama of the Real Housewives franchise...its hilarious and enticing.  The drama between LC & Kristin & Stephen sucked me in instantly of course & watching it now is so funny knowing how they "ended up".  Well, actually I don't have a clue what happened to Stephen...I remember that he was on a TV show there for a while, who knows maybe he still is but its a show I obviously don't watch.
Back then we saw LC (now just Lauren) aspiring to be a Kelly Cutrone & now she's a full on fashion designer with a "good girl" reputation, she's not exactly the type to be showing her vag to the world in Us Weekly.  And of course there was Kristin who was the bad girl then and she tried a hosting career there for a while but as far as I know she's just a "Football Wife" in training now & pregnant as well.

I don't have a clue what folks like Polster, Jen Bunny & Morgan are up to & I haven't seen season 2 with that stupid girl who made terrible choices in guys & was always chewing on her lip in a long time...Netflix only has season 1 & I've only seen season 1 being rerun as well.  I'd like to see season 2 again to remind me of the antics there because all I remember is the LC & Jason drama as well as that dumb girl & all her man troubles that she was bringing on herself.  Anyway, I should get back to watching TV so I'll have more to share later about Man vs. Food which is my new addiction!

The Newsroom premieres tonight

Tonight on DIY at 8:00 is the 3rd season premiere of Mega Dens with a "colorful basement surprise".  Then at 9:00 on TLC is the 3rd season finale of Sister Wives, on VH1 is the 4th season finale of Tough Love on VH1.  On TV Land also at 9:00 are the AFI Life Achievement Awards honoring Shirley Maclaine.

I've seen previews of this show and a few of my readers suggested that I watch it and I hate to say it...especially being from Michigan but I can't stand Jeff Daniels.  Every time I see him in anything he's Flap from Terms of Endearment & I can't move past it...I also don't care for Olivia Munn or Emily Mortimer so I think I'll skip watching this one.  As I'm sitting here re-watching True Blood & Girls in HD from last week I've seen a couple different new previews for it I initially thought (a couple months ago) it was a comedy & was intrigued but then a few seconds into that initial preview I realized it wasn't & lost all interest.  These different previews don't change my mind either, it just makes me not want to watch it even more but from what I hear it's supposed to be really good...Alan Sorkin is behind it so I'm sure it isn't terrible!! 

At 11:59 on Adult Swim is the 9th season premiere of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 review

I wasn't sure how I would feel about this show but now that I've seen 2 episodes...I love it!! The salon is called AJ's & it's owned by AJ who is a lovely man that I really like & I think he's gay but I'm not sure. Next up we have Valincia the bitch who is always starting something & she's straight, has a huge Afro & has been working for AJ 20 years.

The salon manager is Niki & the sales manager is Q & I like these ladies as well but they haven't brought any drama so I don't know much about them yet. This brings us to Katrell who is a makeup artist & Valincia hates with a passion. It's the Olivia/Tracy dynamic with these 2. The other makeup artist is Austin & she is so cute, she's really little & the only white girl but she's pretty hood for a white girl. She reminds me of Taryn Manning but way more conservative & this week she went out with a Chicago Bears player on a first date that was kind of wah-wah.

This brings us to Macray, the hilarious & feminine gay guy who took Austin shopping for her big date. There is another guy...he's a barber & the football player was in seeing him when he spotted Austin & had to take her out. I of course forgot the barber's name & he & a date also went out with Austin & the baller.

This show has drama, stylists, and style like Jerseylicious but it doesn't have the stupid phrases & crazy Jersey clothing that I jut adore. I will definitely keep watching this one but I really prefer Gayle, Ant & the crews in Jersey.

Bunheads...I watched it

I watched Bunheads...well sort of watched it.  I was baking cookies & it was on TV so I caught enough of it to know if I would like it & certainly enough to form an opinion because that only took 5 minutes.

I don't like it...the show has potential but it's trying way too hard to be Gilmore Girls & the leading lady is no Lauren Graham.  Sutton Foster (formerly on Broadway) plays Michelle Simms who was a Vegas showgirl who married a man on a whim & moved to his small town with him.  She met his mother Fanny Flowers played by Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore) who is a dance teacher and then I think he dropped dead or was in a car accident or something...I'm pretty sure he died let's put it that way.  After this Michelle decided to stay in town & also teach dance so I guess I missed the middle but I saw a couple parts & that's what I didn't like about the show.

There was a scene where Michelle walks into a party (for her & her husband I think) and she's late but heads straight for the bar area & grabs a glass of wine, she takes a sip, makes a face & spits it out saying how gross it is.  This was not funny, comical, cute...this was forced & this Sutton Foster just isn't Lauren Graham (I got a very strong Lorelei Gilmore feel from the character) & it was pretty obvious to me that they should have cast this show better or not made to so closely resemble Gilmore Gilrs.  

I won't be watching this one & I've not yet heard if it has been picked up by the network as it's only been on for a couple weeks but I have a feeling it will last.  Moms can watch it with their daughters & dancers will like it I'm sure but it's too fluffy for me & too poorly acted.

Dawson's, 90210, Roseanne, My So Called Life...

These are the kinds of shows I grew up on & TV is nothing like it used to be...I'm sure my parents would say the same thing.  I used to watch TV with my mom growing up so I enjoy shows like Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, Rhoda, All in the Family & a lot more but obviously my key shows are those like Party of 5, Melrose Place, Family Ties, Growing Pains, Webster...the list can go on forever but since I'm currently unemployed I've been watching a lot more TV that I wouldn't usually watch so I can better blog about what's on but I find myself going back to Netflix, my DVD collection & reruns.  I spend the majority of my free time lately watching 90210, Dawson's Creek & Roseanne...I watch at least one of these shows every day but some days I'll catch all 3.  Dawson's is on Netflix, Roseanne used to be but now it's on Oxygen most days, it's on WGN & TVLand weeknights too & then 90210 is on SoapNet daily plus I have every episode on DVD.

Yes I'm thrilled that True Blood is on, Breaking Bad is coming back...etc, but I guarantee that when the season premiere of Breaking Bad is over I'll probably put on Dawson's Creek or Roseanne after.  With these shows that I watch all the time...I've seen each episode multiple times already.  I have seen 90210 beginning to end at least 18 times, Dawson's probably 5, Roseanne...shit, probably 25, My So Called Life about 6 & just now I've started re-watching Melrose Place again to add some variety.  Now Melrose I gave up on pretty early in so I will most likely not continue on past the point that watched it originally but that one I've only seen the once so it's kind of new again which I'm's like dating an old boyfriend from high school again in your 30s.

Anyway, my whole point is that now, TV isn't all it used to be.  Seasons have gotten shorter, characters have become less identifiable, sitcoms have nearly disappeared & most of the good shows are on cable channels that you have to pay for...what the hell is that all about?  I miss the fluffy with a lesson learned drama of shows like My So Called Life & 90210 & the outright humor based on real life in shows like Roseanne but now that technology has taken over (clearly, I'm currently watching TV through my blu-ray player) there is nothing left to identify with other than a house full of people in different rooms using different gadgets.  I guess this is why reality TV has become so popular & even legitimately scripted shows like Modern Family are filmed as though they are reality shows.  I love reality TV like crazy but, I'll take Roseanne the sitcom over Roseanne's Nuts any day!!

The wrong I had to watch it!!

So the other night I DVR'd The Choice (hosted by Cat Deeley) on FOX just to see if it was as terrible as I thought it would be since the show claims to have the world's most eligible celebrities & Paulie D was on the first episode.  If Paulie D is considered a most eligible celebrity we have problems!!  Anyway, this show is modeled after The Voice since the bachelors cannot see the ladies when they come out, they can only hear what the ladies have to say during their 30 seconds on stage.  Dudes...there wasn't a single girl that came out that was larger than a size 8 & the ones who to me were the most annoying ended up getting the dates!  The other celebrities that were up were Romeo, a guy from GH & some skier guy...yup, definitely most eligible, I don't even know who they are & I'm freaking single!!

Anyway, in the first round ladies come out & give their "pick me because I'm spicy" ramble for 30 seconds & the guys turn around if they like what they hear.  Then the lady picks the one they want out of the guys who turned.  Next round is a quick question round where the guy asks the girls questions for like 30 seconds, then the next girl, then the next...etc.  The guys then eliminate a girl or 2 & have another round where the girls on each team are each asked the same question from their picker.  After that the guys come up & pick the one they want to take out on a date that night.  Next episode we get to see the date & meet the next 4 bachelors (Joe Jonas & then 3 guys I've never heard of) & group of attractive thin girls that they get to choose from.  This show will definitely be a hit but it's just so wrong I think it passed right half way through the first episode.

Push Girls...I watched it

So I checked out the series premiere of Push Girls on Sundance earlier in the week & I ended up adding it as a series recording.  The show felt very much like The Real L Word which airs on Showtime but it's about girls in wheelchairs rather than lesbians.  

There are 4 girls that the show is focusing on, first up is Tiphany who is blonde & very pretty is also sexually open...she had/has a boyfriend but she is also dating a woman.  I cannot recall what Tiphany does for a living or if that was even discussed yet but she is in a wheelchair because of a car accident that she had when she was younger.  She seems like a firecracker, she's outspoken & works out & all in all seems like a lot of fun to hang out with.  I really should have more information but I'm writing from the road today & left my notes at home so please bear with me.

Tiphany has a roommate, Angela who is a model & is in the chair because of a terrible accident that made her a quadriplegic where the other girls are all paraplegic so Angela has limited use of her arms & little dexterity with her hands so she needs assistance & her aunt is currently helping her out at home.  Angela is currently trying to get back into modeling & was having some head shots done in the opening episodes & she was also dealing with her husband who is the Asian guy from 21 Jump Street...the TV show.  He might be her ex-husband now but I can't say for sure...again, it's in my notes.  I do know that she needs to make money to pay for help & rent so she wanted to get back into modeling which she had done before & was wonderful at it...she's tall & thin & very exotic looking & she photographs really well.

Next up is Mia who works in an office (not really sure what she does) and at the beginning was dating an able bodied guy who she later broke up with after a year and a half.  Mia is really strong willed & isn't willing to settle for anything in any situation...not work, not men, not anything so it makes her a little hard & closed off which kind of reminds me of me, LOL.  Mia is the only one in a chair because of something other than an accident, she had a spinal embolism or some to that effect when she was a teenager I think...God, I really should remember this but's in my notes.

Last but certainly not least is Auti...she also was in an accident & broke her back in half which put her in the chair.  Auti is a hip-hop dancer & also now a ballroom dancer & in one of the first episodes we get to see her compete in a big ballroom competition & win her category which has nothing to do with wheelchairs.  Auti is married to a hot guy who is really supportive of her & puts up with her stubbornness as well, they are really cute.

All in all this is a great show & since the information I gave you is pretty poor I think you should check Sundance for reruns & start watching the show yourself!
