So many shows didn't air this week

Because of that bitch hurricane Sandy a ton of shows I watch didn't air this week & I'm sure a ton of others didn't either.  I missed the Monday night CBS lineup & then last night Private Practice wasn't on nor was The New Normal and I get that news coverage of the hurricane & its aftermath are important but the networks didn't indicate when we can expect to see the shows that didn't air.  In the past when shows have been preempted by the President or other news the shows end up being aired at like 4 am but that didn't happen so I don't know if the shows will air next week & then just continue from there or what.  I have asked CBS & ABC when we can expect to see our shows return but I haven't yet heard anything from them.

I just hope that whenever these things air that my DVR will catch them & record them...unlike the season finale of Flipping Out which was on last night & my DVR didn't record.  I'm kind of heartbroken by this because I absolutely adore Jeff & crew & I searched my TV Guide & it's currently not scheduled to rerun either which is just unheard of!  Since when doesn't Bravo air reruns like they are going out of style?  Ah well, I'm sure I wouldn't be so annoyed if I had anything else to look forward to or occupy my time during the week!!  If I hear anything from any of the networks about shows being replayed I'll let you know so make sure you follow @DVRslave on Twitter!!

The Houstons: On Our Own...oh hell no!!!

OK...we all know that Whitney Houston died earlier this year and we all heard all kinds of stories about the drama within the Houston family but now, we get to watch it all as they proceed to capitalize on the death of Whitney.  It's bad enough that this show is airing less than a year after her death but to make matters worse...they started filming 3 months after!  Whitney wasn't even cold yet & the family was signing contracts to start their own reality show, this to me is beyond tacky & I don't know who is more to blame...the Houstons or Lifetime for making & airing the show.

Anyway, Lifetime aired 2 back to back episodes of the show & I reluctantly watched them both & will not be watching further.  First of all, Krissy (Bobbi Kristina) is a mess & we get to see plenty of it starting with her damn can't tell me that she doesn't have the money to get that huge damn gap in her teeth fixed, I mean, it's big enough for another damn tooth!!  Then, we learned that Whitney's godson Nick who was like a brother to Krissy is now her boyfriend (in the second episode her fiance) so it's like incest but not really...regardless, it's gross.  Nick has huge eyebrows, he's a total mooch & she's obsessed with him.  

So aunt Pat is now Krissy's guardian & Pat is Whitney's brothers wife & Krissy doesn't listen to a damn thing she says but I don't blame her...she always says it to the camera rather than Krissy.  We see Krissy at dinner drinking & Pat whispering to her husband that she won't stand for that yet she doesn't say anything to Krissy.  She of course bitches to the camera about Krissy drinking saying that she won't be acting like that on her watch & in the next scene she's sipping wine in the kitchen with the rest of the family.  Sure, Pat tells her she can't be doing that & takes the bottle from her hand but that's not going to do was pretty clear that Krissy was already wasted on something when she arrived for the family dinner to begin with.

The whole fam went to see grandma Cissy in Jersey for mothers day and on the trip they visited Whitney's grave site (the tombstone is pretty plain & small & generic) & we watched Krissy sit there & weep & then learned that it was only 3 months since her passing that this was taking place.  The whole family also went to church that morning but Krissy & her boyfriend didn't show up & when Pat asked why Krissy said it was too soon to be in that church again because the last time she was there her mother was in a casket.  Pat said "oh yeah, you're right, I didn't even think about that, I'm sorry".  Seriously?  Are you effing kidding me?  She hadn't thought about it?  Right then I knew who must have been behind this entire show & everything else...aunt Pat, trying to make a buck.  

Pat's husband Gary & daughter Rayah are secondary on the show...I feel bad for Rayah because her mom is so focused on Krissy & getting her singing career going that she really seems to care less about her own daughter.  Speaking of Krissy's singing career...her mother had her working with a coach to get her moving in the right direction & Pat is trying to get her to work with someone else & Krissy isn't having it so she just doesn't show up for a meeting.  She instead spent the day with her man at the arcade...yep, sounds like she's ready for a career.  There isn't anything about this show that is good, I am appalled that I even watched it but I had to so I could report back to you & tell you all about it.  If this gets picked up for another season then James Cameron really might have to dive down to the bottom of the ocean to raise the bar (this is a South Park reference) because we all need to check ourselves.

I know this post is all over the place but I had so many thoughts going through my head that I was typing like my fingers were on fire.  Here's some of what was said on Get Glue by myself & other viewers:

@michl what does Nick DO?? he's 23 and it just looks like he's mooching of bobbi kris
@Darrell James I have no words for this child...
@Toni Varone Bobbi Kristina is SO high..This is like a repeat of her father in their last reality show!
@Sherrie Ann White Back again...I think Pat has a lot of nerve! I really believe that when she looks at Bobbi Kris , she sees $$$, just like she did w/Whitney. So sad :(
@DVR Slave "We're 2 people who stand each other up" uh, does he know what it means to stand someone up? What a fool & he needs an eyebrow wax too!
@Jasmine Suntrell Whitney didn't die for this...

As you can see...most people were horrified by this show, I'd say about 1 out of every 20 comments was a positive one or one calling out the other 19 for being so rude.

Cancellation/Renewal update

For this post I'm going to tell you which shows are doing poorly as nothing has been cancelled since I last posted a cancellation update.  

- 666 Park Avenue & Last Resort are both doing very poorly in the ratings while Scandal, The Neighbors & Nashville are doing somewhat poorly in the ratings.

- Partners is doing very poorly in the ratings while CSI: NY, The Good Wife, The Mentalist & Vegas are doing somewhat poorly in the ratings.  On the bright side of things, Big Bang Theory has already been renewed.

- Nothing has been cancelled here but 90210, Emily Owens M.D, Hart of Dixie & Beauty & the Beast are doing somewhat poorly...I still doubt any of them will be cancelled because this network rarely cancels anything.

- Nothing cancelled here either but The Mob Doctor is doing very poorly while Ben & Kate is doing poorly. On the plus, Bob's Burgers, American Dad, Family Guy & The Simpsons have already been renewed.

- Up All Night is doing very poorly while Guys With Kids & Chicago Fire are doing somewhat poorly.

This season of opinion

There are a couple spoilers in here so if you haven't caught up yet don't read this.  So this is the 7th season of Dexter that we are watching now and I hate to say it but so far after 3 episodes I'm not impressed.  As most of you already know I can't stand Deb & she has such a large role this season that it's driving me insane.  I don't like the fact that she knows about Dexter's dark passenger because it removes so much of the tension that kept me on the edge of my seat...all of the "oh no, he's going to get caught" is over & that's a huge part of the show.  Dexter is spending so much time trying to convince Deb that his work has a purpose and not enough time killing people and that's the whole point of the show.

The second line of intrigue that I was enjoying was that of Dexter & Louis but the Russians killed him off so there goes that...I couldn't wait to see what Louis was going to do to Dexter but now he won't be doing anything.  Now, speaking of the Russians, I'm really not liking this whole story with the strip club, the strippers & the Russians who own it's boring, it feels a little to Sopranos for me, I keep expecting Tony to come out of the back room telling Batista & crew to leave the Bada Bing.  I really hope that story line gets a little more interesting, more so than dipshit Quinn banging one of the stripper/witnesses which is nothing new.

Now...about this Hannah broad, I'm not sure if she's going to be a new love interest for Dexter or if she's going to end up just being connected to Mike, the cop who was killed in the first episode.  It's because of Mike that this whole Russian stripper thing is going of them killed him & then Dexter killed the killer which now that I think about it is a big waste of money.  Dexter kills these people while the police are wasting time, money & manpower to attempt to solve these cases...that's not cool!  So these Russians are on to Dexter & are looking to take him out for killing their guy and I don't think he knows yet so I'm looking forward to that exchange & also looking forward to seeing what happens to Harrison.  Dexter sent him to spend some time with his grandparents in Orlando which tells me that either he won't be in the rest of the season or something will happen to him & his baby-sitter while on their journey.

I have no plans to give up on Dexter but I'm about as into this season as I was season 3...basically, I'm bored & need more killing, more intrigue, more nail biting suspense and so far this season isn't giving me any of that.  Also, like every other season...I want Deb to die, I can't stand the way she talks & she's gotten on my nerves since episode 1!

Question, did Dexter send the hand to Masuka & note that it was from Louis or did Louis send it?  I could have sworn in the previous episode it was Louis who was drawing on the hand but then again Louis did send it to Dexter so maybe it was Dexter.  Clearly I was confused by that part & probably because I was on vacation so I had a week off to forget everything that had already happened.

Anyway, that's my take on this season so far...what are you thinking?

Steel Magnolias vs. Steel Magnolias

So I watched the Lifetime version of Steel Magnolias starring Queen Latifah & Alfre Woodard & here is what I thought of it.  First of all I need to tell you that I am a HUGE fan of the original movie starring Sally Field & Shirley Maclaine & I know every word, every movement, every everything about the movie from beginning to end.  I knew that this new version wouldn't be the same because it was going to be on Lifetime, plus it is clearly a newer more updated version although when I saw the cast on Anderson they said that it was the same script as the original movie just with a different cast and director.  Well, I beg to differ!

I had a hard time watching the movie because I would repeat the original line after everything they said because it wasn't said right.  The movie is supposed to take place in Louisiana yet none of the women had a southern accent which I found very annoying.  Scenes were blended together, like lines from the middle of the movie were suddenly being said during the wedding at the beginning of the movie and then there were so many scenes that were omitted & new scenes that were added & that bugged me.  Another thing I didn't care for was the removal of a major core part of the movie...the relationship between Shelby & M'Lynn.  In the original movie this is a key plot line and in this version it really wasn't, it seemed to focus more on M'Lynn in general & that (for me) removed the emotion from the movie.   

I thought Alfre was a good Ouiser and Phylicia was a good Clairee but the rest of the cast wasn't the best...for starters Jill & Queen seemed too young to be playing the roles they had.  I didn't buy Condola as Shelby or Adepero as Annelle who in the original had a funny & cute story line but in this version she barely had one at all aside from Shelby giving her a bunch of clothes which didn't happen in the original either.  

The "here, hit this" scene was moved to the beauty shop & lost the entire effect that the scene has in the original when it takes place in the cemetery.  Like I said earlier, this version was really lacking the emotion the first one had, I didn't shed a single tear, didn't feel a single tug on my heart, I didn't feel for anyone in the movie because their characters were so underdeveloped.  Perhaps had I not seen the original I would have liked it more but since the original is one of my favorites I don't think I could watch this again, it was a pretty shabby remake so if you are a fan of the original I'd skip this as you will probably be annoyed with it too.  If you aren't familiar with the original (a lot of the cast of this version never saw the original & that's not right) then you might like this's your call.

My vacation!!!

Hey everyone...since I didn't post anything extra last week I wanted to at least share some photos from my vacation.  My mom & I went to San Diego for 5 days & I completely fell in love with the city...the weather, the views, the food, all in all it was one of the best vacations I've ever had & all I kept thinking is "why don't I live here".  Yes, I love Detroit & that will never change but when we landed into 45 degree weather with rain I just wanted to turn back around, send for my dog & start scheduling interviews for jobs in San Diego.  If the right reader happens upon this & wants to pay me to write my blog...hint, hint I wouldn't think twice before moving to that area since I've only been home one day & am already miserable & missing the sun.
