Only Old Stuff Returning Tonight September 24, 2009

GREY’S ANATOMY.  I stopped watching last year when Izzie was having sex with a ghost even though producer Shonda Rimes claimed she didn’t have a brain tumor, she was lying and that pissed me off.  If you’re going to put a main character through such a shitty arc because she says negative things about the storylines you give her, at least cop to it or cut the girl loose.  You may have retained me as a viewer if you got rid of Izzie Stevens.  I think she’s a complete bitch in real life.  But if I’m wrong and this season’s good, feel free to let me know and I’ll reevaluate my take on things.




THE OFFICE.  Since they don’t show previews, I don’t know what’s set to happen this week.  What I do know is this: we’ll continue hearing about Pam and Jim’s baby and though Dwight and Angela broke up a while ago, they may not be done.  I can’t promise any of this for tonight, but I can promise Michael hijinks! 


REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA.  Actually, I think that would be a “new” thing and the reason is that Big Papa is on for the first time!  I doubt we’ll see his face, but we’ve never even seen his car so this is kind of a big night.


PROJECT RUNWAY.  I’m clinging on but I’m not thrilled about it.  I love fashion, but I think my problem is that everything that is coming down that runway right now seems like it’s been done in a past season.  I’m having the same problem with Top Chef.  Deja vu x2.


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.


Putting the Premieres Into One Post July 9, 2009

How does that sound?  I can’t keep bouncing back and forth talking about all the different networks and the offerings they will soon have for us, so I’m putting all MY shows (and some that I know are favorites but that I personally don’t watch) down right now.
