Editor’s Note: whoops!  This doesn’t premiere until Wednesday, Oct. 14 (tomorrow).  My bad!  I’m used to it being on Tuesday….


It returns tonight, and I know I’m not the only one who feels like the wait is eternal in between seasons.  Honestly, I probably should have stopped watching this show ages ago because it is so line-crossing that sometimes even I have a hard time watching (and I’m about the least PC person you’ll ever meet). 


This year, the recession hits the business and the boys have to downsize.  I’m so done with “the economy is for shit” storylines.  I’m not going to pretend that the economy has affected the rich THAT much — they had better stock portfolios than me before the recession, and they’ll have better ones after. 


Last season Christian got married to Liz.  And (SPOILER ALERT) they’re already heading for divorce.  I know Christian’s supposed to be great in the sack, but I don’t think he’s so good he’ll turn a lesbian.  Anyway, tune in tonight (times vary dpeending on your feed but mine is at 11pm) since this is the next-to-last season.


Doozy of a Thursday September 21, 2009

For whatever reason, I’m just now getting around to writing about last Thursday’s premiere night of both The Office and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.  Actually, I know why it took me this long.  I am hopelessly addicted to Friday Night Lights and I had a marathon session for the past 2 days, causing me to go into a football coma, unable to watch anything else until the first 2 seasons were complete and while I await the 3rd season discs in the mail.  That said, let’s focus on the other good stuff.




Is Tonight a Good Night for TV? You Betcha! September 17, 2009

And I’m sure you’re wondering why.  As I’ve recently learned, I happen to maybe offend people right here on this blog.  Some would call me crass, some a downright biotch, but hopefully most find me to be a witty delight.  If not, I suspect you’re on the wrong blog and need to be moving on over to Watch with Kristin’s far more conservative use of vocabulary. 


On that vein, we’ve got some viewing pleasure coming atcha this evening that could offend almost anyone: it’s the return of It’s Almost Sunny in Philadelphia and tonight, the Gang Exploits the Mortgage Crisis.  Let me just tell you that if you do not watch this show, you are missing out on something special.  It may be zany to say the least, but FX is bringing us a show that I believe to be a true marker of our generation, much like some feel South Park is.  It’s not PC in the slightest, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.  In fact, they keep that sucker out of rotation and off the air until 11pm so either record it or plan to stay up late (or late for me at least). 


Additionally, we have always-amazing The Office on NBC and Real Housewives of Atlanta to boot and Kim is using the ol’ smoker’s singing voice for us.  As for The Office, I don’t actually know what to expect but what I do know is that we left last season with a prego Pam and Michael back in his rightful spot at Dunder Mifflin. 


Party?  Hearty.
