This Season On TV (For Me)

November 7, 2010

I suppose this post is a long time in coming, but frankly, I’ve just been too busy watching TV to write on this blog! Oh, the irony.  But it’s actually a good thing because I’ve finally decided what shows I’m keeping, adding, and dropping.  So here’s the official list, and I will probably write some explanatory posts for each show in the coming weeks.

Clip Show: Week of 4/26

April 28, 2010

Clip Show posts are just snippets of thoughts from shows that I didn’t think deserved a whole post.

Rules of Engagement
“The Score”
Patrick Warburton getting a shot of estrogen?  Very funny premise and almost wish it would have been played out further.  Instead, they played up the Tivo-ing of a Rangers game and trying to avoid the score all night.  The latter has been done to death.  Still, a funny episode overall.

The best part of this episode is Abby’s apparent jealousy over a girl’s crush on McGee.  It did not live up to the hype of Gibbs’ taking a polygraph.

NCIS: Los Angeles
Pretty good episode, mostly due to the addition of a new recurring character.  But will he be back?

Rules of MENgagement…

April 12, 2010

…cuz, let’s face it, we watch it for the men of the show, not the women.

Rules of Engagement is a trivial show, which is perhaps why it only gets half-seasons.  There just isn’t much of a purpose to it.  But every year I’m excited to find it has been renewed because it is funny.  Sure, David Spade’s character is basically a rich version of his “Just Shoot Me” character, but the interplay between him and the two couples works well.  And Puddy’s in it, ’nuff said.

Again, this probably won’t be a show I write about much.  But I watch it.  And I wanted you to know that I watch it.

Maybe I’ll do a daily (or weekly) summation post of shows I watched but didn’t write about, just in case someone has something to say about one of them.  And now you can say you were there when this amazing idea was born!
