Mad Men record ratings
T: And I’m still bored. (At this point, I’ve dug my grave, might as well go with it). 3.5MM viewers watched the long awaited season premiere. And I was certainly one of them. I was just disappointed. I thought it was the most boring episode the show has ever done. 2 hours and 10 minutes wasn’t needed. EW message boards would eviscerate me for saying this. Just as...
What to Watch, 3-26-12, Part 2
M: The Voice on NBC wraps up the battle rounds tonight! So if we’re lucky, maybe Christina is still wearing a bedazzled 45 on her head & Adam is wearing his granny sweater! A couple of the battles last week were really tough choices (Angel Taylor went home; and although she’s not my taste, I thought Gwen Sebastian did a great job w/one of my favorite songs, We Belong by Pat...
What To Watch, 3-26-12
T: Very easy night. I sheepishly reco ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. Last week was pretty fun. Like I said, I can get through the show pretty quickly, usually about 10 minutes for the 2 hour broadcast. Last week, however, I found myself sucked in. 8p-10p. I’ll let M comment on the other Broadcast shows she recos tonight. That’s it from me for primetime. Late Night...
What You May Have Missed Watching 3-25-12, Part 2
Frozen Planet on Discovery. Don’t worry - it repeats Tuesday at 7PM PDT. I had to boot Once Upon a Time for it. Summer - polar bears, fur seals, king penguins, bison, cariou. And, Alec Baldwin used one of my favorite phrases (and it sounded really cheesy - I need to say it less). He cited one of the caribou of being a lover, but also a fighter. T: I am so glad you posted this....
Am I a Hypocrite because I Like GCB and Disdain...
M: In my defense, Teri Hatcher was the initial star of DH, and I think she’s a terrible actress, not cute when she’s acting clueless, and cloying. I don’t dislike anyone to that degree on GCB. I love Leslie Bibb as a protagonist. And I LOVE Annie Potts. T: Annie Potts is the BEST thing about GCB (which I like)! Teri is indeed bad. But everyone is stepping up on DH. Even...
Why don’t you buy yourself a fancy hat…or a mask or something.– T: Roger—Mad Men. HAHAHAHA M: LOL - I laughed too. I know Roger is becoming a little irrelevant, but he is such a silver fox.
T Critique--The Hunger Games
T: Well, here we are. This is going to be unpopular. But M and I are honest and critical in our critiques and this, despite the entire world seeing The Hunger Games this weekend, isn’t the time to change that. Bottom line: I was bored out of my mind. I could not wait for this movie to end. (And it went on and on and on…and on…). This review comes from someone who has...
What To Watch, 3-25-12 (aka MAD MEN DAY!!!)
T: After 18 months, bliss is finally back tonight. Read on. Mad Men is FINALLY back on AMC! There is no better consolation for no Walking Dead for a while than this. It’s been 18 months since we last dropped in on Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce and I CANNOT wait to see the premiere. AND, it’s two hours! If you haven’t watched this (you are crazy), start. I’m very...
T--Analysis: The Killing
T: So, The Killing is finally almost back. April Fools Day is the day, which I suppose is ironic. The public outcry over last season has pissed me off to no end. The continued attacks on the season are just outrageous. EW has an article about whether viewers will want to come back. First: GET THE F OVER IT. (M: Seriously) People, do you not remember a time when entire summers were built...
Air Supply musical on Broadway (seriously)
T: Featuring the classic songs of Air Supply with four new songs written just for the musical. Starring Constantine Maroulis. Of Idol “fame.” Kill me now. Listen, I can’t say I haven’t ever sung along with an Air Supply song (where on earth did they get that name?). But I can say that the idea of a musical comprised entirely of their music (and especially with...
During contract negotiations, Felicity was willing to literally give up part of...– Doug Savant via Entertainment Weekly re: Felicity Huffman. How very, very classy.
