TV review

Ack!  I saw on sarah_mae13's journal that Arrested Development has been cancelled, along with Kitchen Confidential.  AUGH!  What is the matter with people, those are both great shows.  I am so disappointed, especially when shows like Meet Your New Mommy and crap like that are still on.  It's total bullplop I tells ya, bullplop!  Makes me glad that at least some shows like Lost still managed to survive and thrive.

In other TV news, I still ♥ The Apprentice.  The Donald has been going nuts with the cuts this season!  I think the producers were telling him to stretch things out for as long as possible at first, now he just says "screw it" and gets rid of people left and right.  Four in one shot last week, two together this week.  Crazy!  I also enjoyed Lost, I think it's cool that they're basically starting over by going to the storyline of the other Flight 815 survivors next week.  My dad pointed out that Jack walked by in the hospital when Shannon and her stepmom were getting the terrible news!  I didn't even notice, it was literally a 2-second cameo.  So clever.  Stargate SG-1 was pretty good, it was kinda funny to see Teal'c getting some Earth nookie!  I think I'm going to do with Atlantis what I did with SG-1: wait a couple years, then start picking up the DVD sets if I still like it.  That way I can decide if I really want to commit to buying them, plus I think I will enjoy seeing them more after some time has passed.  Still loving Prison Break, though I'm sad to find out Nov 28 will already be the season finale.  Alas!  I've also enjoyed Commander in Chief more than I thought I might, and it's a good lead-in to Boston Legal.  Of course, I am still tuning in to The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, Desperate Housewives, and Grey's Anatomy on Sunday -- all good shows!  My goodness, I am such a TV junkie!  Now, I just need Scrubs to come back and maybe I can get over some of my misery about Arrested and Kitchen... *groan*

Oh, by the way... Dad managed to catch two mice today and I haven't seen any running around this evening. Looks like poor Norman has finally gone to the big cheese in the sky. :(

Oops! Thanks for the heads-up. I was so distraught I didn't even think to double-check that I had it correct. *wry grin*

Re: N C

I definetly prefer their first two albums, although I'm deeply in love with the song Doubting Thomas from the third (newest) one.

*gasp of dismay* Oh, no!

Isn't it, though? Have you watched the Martha Stewart version? I don't like it as much, but it's still entertaining. There's one guy named Jim who's a total nutball, but he somehow manages to be be an effective nutball! The most hilarious dismissal on the Trump version this season was Marcus, sitting in the taxi going "Umm, yeah... I think... well, you know... I speak, umm... very intelligently and... yeah, I, uh... I say what I'm thinking. If, uh, you know, that's too much for people to, umm, you know, handle... well, I can't, uh, I can't do anything about that." *ROFL* I seriously was cracking up. The egos some of these folks have, huh? :P

I've watched Commander in Chief every week so far and I like it pretty well. Donald Sutherland is underappreciated as an actor...even though I despise his character on this show (that must mean he's doing a good job?).

Wow, a fellow scrubs fan.

I'm just hoping for expedited release of the other seasons on DVD.

Re: *waves again*

That would be cool, I wouldn't mind picking those up one of these days. Do you know when they're scheduled to come back? I just checked the NBC website, it still doesn't say. *sniff, sniff*
