New format. TV review.

I’ve decided that I watch too much TV to try and maintain a stream of separate posts.  So what I will do now is list several show per post and what I liked and didn’t like about them.  Let’s do this!!

Sanctuary

Like – Nikola Tesla!!  He’s so sassy and awesome.  And vampiric.  Being a bit of a double agent suits him well.  The subplot of Will and Biggie seeing those abnormal get fried was really as engaging as seeing the main thread.

Dislike – Nothing much to dislike this week.  I just miss Kate a little bit.  And what happened to Helen’s new lady love affair?  I thought that was especially hot and I want to see it addressed again. 

 

Bedlam

Like – I like that Kate finally realized what a mega-dick her dad is.  And I love that Ryan clearly has a thing for Jed, and sleeps with Molly anyway.  Molly should have been a little less overbearing though.  Straight or gay, who needs a need bitch like that?

Dislike – Kate’s still the biggest bitch ever.  She’s such an asshole to everyone around her, why does anyone talk to her.  And why on earth would Jed even consider making a move on her.  Especially since she pulled that dick move on her ex-lover married guy.  I’d like her more if she was still a bitch, but just a hint more compassion.  Ryan – seriously!  Why are you kidding yourself with this sleeping with women thing.  You were so happy at the gay bar a few episodes back.  I don’t feel bad for Molly, but I do for you.  Come out!!

 

Dexter

Like – EVERYTHING!!  I love how Dexter is contemplating his own darkness because of Brother Sam.  Nick had that shit coming.  What an ass.  Even Debra is interesting this season!  I haven’t been interested in her plights since season one.  I like the trials that she’s going through with the promotion and LaGuerta is like a bad news/bad advice angel.  I’m glad she’s not marring Quinn.  Though I expect that she’ll reconsider by the end.  Travis letting that girl go was crazy awesome, but Gellar is going to be so pissed!!  And I’m really pumped to see Dexter’s brother.  :::gasp::: Trinity’s son!!

Dislike – I miss Dexter’s table.  Too bad he had to drown Nick.  I like the kill rooms.

 

Walking Dead

Like – Glenn gets laid!!  Super awesome.  Lori is a weirdo.  I wonder whose baby that is…it would seem obvious that its Shane’s so maybe it should be Rick’s.  Shane’s still a little crazy, but not as crazy as he seemed last week.  Daryl continues to prove that he brother is not related to him at all.  Out of all the characters on the show, Daryl is the one guy I’d want near me at all times.  And truth to tell, he’s easy on the eyes a little bit too.

Dislike – Andrea and Dale bore me.  I get it, Shane looks like he’ll get over Lori by climbing on Andrea.  But honestly, I couldn’t care less about her and her shitty attitude.  Dale is old and boring.  Oh and I get it, Carol.  It’s your kid and you are losing it without her.  But you are as useful as tits on a log when it comes to helping find her.  You are damn lucky to have Daryl around.  Anyone else think the old surgeon man should have been played by  John Lithgow?

 That’s it for now. 

Cheers!

Birthday!!

Yesterday was my 34th Birthday!  I still get kid excited for my birthdays.  Presents are the best!!  My mom got me another Michie (sp?) bag.  Its those bags from TV that have the removable outside.  They are surprisingly wonderful!  And instead of buying all the different covers (which is expensive), I sew covers to slip over the existing one that I have.  Pretty neat if you can sew!  My husband got me this dress. He’s so awesome!  They only have it in an extra small now, so I guess he got the last XL.  Things like that run small, so I can’t even picture who can get into an XS!!  At school, I got treated for massage.  In fact, I got a four handed massage.  Two guys treated me and I just can’t recommend this style massage enough.  It wasn’t intentional in my case, we just had an odd number of students.  I came out the winner on that!

I hope everyone has a great day today!  I’m still in my birthday glow…

Cheers!

Challange Progress #3

Week 3 progress – Studying.  All my classes have high marks except one.  Neurology still eludes me.  I just can’t get all those name straight!  They all sound exactly the same with two letters changed.  There has to be a way for my ridiculous dyslexic mind to figure this out…Saving money is happening!  I should have $500 saved up by tomorrow.  With the holidays coming and all the traveling I need to so, this will be a life saver soon enough.  The wii – I did it!!  I managed to squeeze in 30 minutes of dance just before Dexter on Sunday night.  It took a lot, but I did it!  I hope to extend the time and do it again this week.  Best score – Iko Iko  Worst score – Jump In The Line  Most difficult – Body Movin’.  Cleaning went super well.  For this week I cleaned the “guests are coming” stuff.  So all I have to do really is dust the living room and hard mop the kitchen.  I asked if I taped magic erasers to my mop, if that could be a thing that works.  My friend mentioned they already make the magic eraser mop!  Can you believe it!?  I can’t.

I hope this week turns out even better!

Cheers!

Once Upon A Time

New Show Time!

This time we try out Once Upon A Time.  And it was pretty good.  Robert Carlyle was my main draw into this show.  That guy is the greatest and he sure didn’t disappoint as Rumpelstiltskin!  The idea of this story is that fairy tale characters are real and their world was cursed into because this picturesque town in Maine.  The Evil Queen takes all the happy endings away but dumping everyone into an ordinary life in Maine.  In the small town scenario the Evil Queen is the mayor of Storybrook.  Jimminy Cricket is the town shrink and snow white is a school teacher.  Rumpelstiltskin owns the town.  Anyway, Prince Charming and Snow White has a kid named Emma and they give her into a protective tree closet and she ends up in Boston.  Its prophized that she will return and restore everything.  She also has a kid that she gave up for adoption and the Evil Mayor adopts him.  The kid finds his birth mom with a stolen credit card and drags her up to Maine.  Evil Mayor is evil and doesn’t love her adopted son.  Emma realizes this and rents a room to stay for a week.

I’m really curious to see where this is going to go.  This could either be really great or really awful.  This, as a series opener goes, was the former.  I liked the flashing back and forth between real world and fairy world to show how things were going to unfold. I wasn’t too sure about how a 10 or so year old boy can get from ME to MA on a stolen credit card, but I’ll bite that no one stopped him or asked where his parents were or why he’s buying tickets with a credit card himself.  Also, how willing to drive to Maine is a person that doesn’t want to be found by her given up son?  Maine is far.  We aren’t talking an hour there and an hour back.  I would have just called the police and let them sort it out.  But I’m dead inside, so there’s that.

Overall, I’ll suspend my disbelief into the next episode and try to see more Robert Carlyle!

Cheers.

 

 

The Hunger Games

Holy Shit!!  New character posters are up for the Hunger Games!

http://io9.com/5854009/8-new-hunger-games-character-posters-show-off-lenny-kravitzs-crazy-futuristic-eyeliner/gallery/1

Let’s have a look!

Effie – She looks AMAZING.  Almost how I pictured her while reading.  I hope she has a reasonably quirky accent like I think she should.  🙂

Cinna – This is not how I pictured him, but I really love this casting.  And I haven’t liked Lenny Kravitz in like 10 years.  I think he’ll have that empathic demeanor and look in his eyes that I always thought was there.

Peeta – Still not on board with the bakery beefcake.  I just don’t like his face.  I’m sure I’ll be wrong about it.

Katniss – She looks perfect.  Every bit of youthful and bravery.  This is the best casting they’ve done.

Gale – Hottie flavor of the month.  I won’t lie, he’s hot.  I’m a cougar to that kid.  I don’t care. . .oops!  I got stuck thinking bad things about that dude.

Rue – I’m already going to cry.

Cato – Would have made a better Peeta.  Also, very hot.

Haymitch – I’m wrong!  This is THE BEST casting choice ever.  His look in the poster is a bananas!  I can’t even wait to see him fall down drunk and being a gross pest to Katniss.

That’s everyone for now.  I can’t wait to see the design team and Peeta’s design team!  I am crazy excited for this movie.  If you haven’t read the books yet, hurry up!  They are crazy awesome!

Cheers!

2 Broke Girls

I wasn’t going to watch this initially because it’s a sitcom and it does not take place in outer space or involve dinosaurs.  But, at the urging of a girlfriend, I checked it out.

She was 100% right!  This show is outstandingly funny!  Especially if you are familiar with being poor and the hipsters that loiter Williamsburg Brooklyn. 

Now, because sitcoms don’t have any notable plots I won’t be reviewing it.  But I will pop up the best lines thus far (because I’m real late to the game…again!)

 

  • Max to customer: “I wear knit hats because it’s cold out. You wear knit hats because of Coldplay.”

 

  • Caroline on ex-boyfriend: “What’d you see in that guy anyway?”

    Max: “He had those muscle thingies. . . . I don’t know what those are called but they make smart girls stupid.”

 

  • Max to Caroline: “Don’t smile. Because it raises the bar and then I have to smile, and I can’t be doing that. It’s exhausting and I have a bad back.”

Happy Watching!

Cheers

ps – this isn’t on demand with Fios for some reason.  I guess I’ll have to use an “alternative” method of watching…

Bad Movies

I was recently asked what terrible movies I watch in spite of the fact that they are terrible.  I had a lot of fun remembering these three movies!  And they are beyond bad.  Yet I still watch them like they are Oscar gold!  Check them out!

Balls of Fury  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0424823/
This is truly terrible, but I can never not watch it!  I mean, Walken is in it!  And I have a thing for Dan Fogler.  hahaha.  Its also really funny if you can take dick jokes for an hour and a half.  I can!!  Its about ping pong, killers, and the FBI!  I hope I’ve sold you on this!  ❤
 
Class Act  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103978/
This is a little dated (1992) but I don’t know why I love it so much.  It is really terrible.  its about a twist on the changing places story, except totally extra cheesey.Starring Kid and Play.  😀  and Pauly Shore has a cameo.
 
If Looks Could Kill  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102095/
Another old one!  But they up the cheese factor with Richard Grieco!  He’s a student that gets mistaken for a secret agent!  A french student!  in France!  This might be my favorite movie on this list.

Happy Cheesey Movie Watching!!

Cheers!
