Glorious TV Time!

Can we talk TV for a minute or two or so!? I DVR a few shows and I just cannot say how excited I get to watch the new episodes. Jeremy and I love to go rent series on DVD and then just watch them all at once, it really is the best. I think all shows should come like that. I watched the first two seasons of LOST that way and I don't recall doing anything productive for about 2 weeks! But more on that show later. Let's chat about the random great ones that I just love to watch.

Real Housewives (every city) on Bravo. I think this show is freaking hilarious! Anyone else watch it?! I know Brad and Staci do! Atlanta was by far the most entertaining because of Ne-Ne (however she spells her name). Oh boy, she is a funny gal indeed. Also the one that thought she could become a country star but was the worst singer you have ever heard! Simon would have ripped her a new one on American Idol (coming up as well). She was NOT 30, no way, no how. 40.. yes... 30 NO. Anywhom, OC wrapped up last night with the reunion show, which was all over the place! I am not a fan of Vicki and Tamra... we (as in Jeremy and I... yes I make him watch it, but deep down he loves this show too.. he knows all about it!) liked Tamra at the beginning but not so much anymore! She is a biatch! Anyways.. who cares if Gretchen has a boyfriend?! I think her and the whole Jeff thing was sad, but also strange. Maybe she felt like she couldn't break up to him because he was dying of cancer and was just kind of stuck and, sorry to say, just waiting it out. Maybe?! Who knows?! But I am excited for NY episodes. Simon and Alex are SO BIZARRO!

Next... Project Runway... please come back. "Leatha"... best part by far.

While we are still on Bravo.. Top Chef. I like this show and it makes me slighty want to learn how to cook, but not so much. I don't want Stefan to win, he is so cocky and annoying. I like what's her face..... can't think of it, but she is the only girl left and she makes me laugh. She sings some of her words and I connect with that and like her now :)

LOST... Who does not watch this show besides Allison, Tyler, and my parents?! Everyone does! I have NO idea what is going on and its in the 5th season. Sad, but true. Just when I think I have come up with a new theory, Jer shoots me down! What happened to Aaron? How is John to come back alive since he died? Are Jake and Kate the two skeletons we saw on the first episode? Please answers my questions.. or don't... I don't think I would get all of it anyways.

American Idol... not sure what I think about the new judge yet. I could honestly do away with everyone but Simon. The first 'live' show last week the new judge was too close to her mic and it was annoying. Apparently, I nit-pick.. who knew? Simon is funny, Paula is on drugs or is just a complete moron (possibly a mixture of both), the new judge... tries a bit too hard at the moment for me, and Randy..."uhh it was a litte pitchy dog, I just don't know about that one.. for me, it was aight". Blah... you are boring. I don't have a favorite yet.. that comes when we are down the top whatever amount it is. But I do like that there are not an equal amount of boys and girls this year... now actually the top people will get in.. not just the top girls and then the top boys.

Heros.... we are one week behind and not really hurrying to watch it. That should say something.

First 48... if I didn't have to get pepper-sprayed to be a cop, I might think about that in my spare time. Maybe a two days a week summer job.. be a homicide detective. Sounds reasonable to me. Who wouldn't want me to work their case? CPS cases.. Homicide cases... same basics. Throw me in Sarge... I'm ready!

Dexter... Adam and Stef told us that this would be a good show and we decided to rent disc one AND two of the first season. We were thinking we would breeze right through them. Well, the due date came and we had not even taken them out of the case. So... we re-rented them and watched all of disc one and we are on disc two. Pretty clever show. A tad graphic at times, but nothing like True Blood or Deadwood (RIP). I like it, Dexter makes me chuckle because he has no feelings and what he says is just very dry. If you liked Boondock Saints (spelling?!) you might like this.. same type of concept. But, yeah, pretty different. The only similarity is that he kills bad guys. I tried to make a comparison!

True Blood, Deadwood, and Entourage... all great HBO series. True Blood, if you can get past the first few awful ones, it is pretty good and it sucks you in. Get it?? Sucks you in.. and they are vampires?! Anyways... Deadwood was amazing, Jeremy and I LOVED this show but they stopped making it after a few season. Entourage.. everyone loves it. Arie and Lloyd are my favorite, by far. Can't wait for Sunday nights to start up again!

Any other shows that I should watch?! Keep em coming, I love DVR! Best creation since light fixtures that come with remotes. They both go hand in hand, don't they?!

Wow! And I thought I watched a lot of tv! lol J/K I love The Real Desperate Housewives of OC and ATL but not the NY one, they were kinda boring , not enough drama, but I do agree Alex and Simon were very very strange! And I don't like Tamara or Vicki either but they are fun to watch!
