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 4/19

April 19, 2010

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

NCIS: Los Angeles
I had high hopes for this spin-off because of my love for NCIS, but because of characters like Dom (Adam Jamal Craig) and Kensi (Daniela Ruah), I haven’t really gotten into it.  I have been watching it mostly for the great chemistry between Callen (Chris O’Donnell) and Sam (LL Cool J).  In this episode, however, I have me new hope for the show with the addition (and hopefully new recurring character) of Eric Christian Olsen (Vaughn from Community, anyone?) as the liaison between NCIS and the LAPD.  More Vaughn please!

Saturday Night Live
Tina Fey
I’m so late watching this episode, but I had to write just to say how good it was!  Tina Fey was a big loss to SNL, but we benefitted in 30 Rock.  Was it just me or did it seem like they gave her extra long skits, too?  My favorite sketch: Tina Fey as teacher to student-crush “Jason” (Justin Bieber).
Some good reviews here and here (this one has clips!).

The New Adventures of Old Christine
“Revenge Makeover”
Good episode (even though I think the show is past its prime) because what woman can’t identify with the revenge makeover?  And let’s face it, any episode with Papa Jeff (Scott Bakula) is fine with me!

TV Shows I’m Watching

April 12, 2010

For my first blog post, I am just copying over a post from my personal blog.  Some of the info has changed, but it was my first public admission of loving TV, so I thought posting it on my new TV blog was appropriate.

At the risk of getting the judgmental eye-roll from my father, I would like to share what TV shows that I’m currently watching.  I am really only doing this because I feel the need to post on my blog, but also because I have 82 Google docs and have found that they make excellent blog fodder.  Here are some examples if you don’t believe me: my journal from Indiabooks I’ve read, and my essay on To Kill a Mockingbird.  And that’s just to name a few!  So here’s my list of TV shows I’m currently watching, taken straight out of my Google doc of the same name (and please don’t ask why I keep a doc of them).
