One Tree Hill Commentary: dedicated to #44

You will first have to pardon the following very disorganized blog. I am still sitting here, my face wet with tears after this heartbreaking episode of One Tree Hill. Sure, it's just a TV show. But death, loss, grief, and pain are such real, all-consuming conditions that touch everyone in one way or another. There is so much I want to comment on, I'm not even sure where to start. 

"He who does not weep does not see"
The two scenes in which Haley attempts to explain to her students why what has happened happens is beautifully done. As one angry high schooler shouts out, "whats the point?" Haley initially responds that there is none. And as much as the second response is the better one, THANK GOODNESS the show starts off with this one. Because to be bitter and upset and angry at the world is the natural first response. It would be a lie not to feel these things. Thus, OTH's take on it is completely true to life. How could anyone think that there is a point when good people are taken away too soon? Or when bad things happen to good people?

The second time Haley speaks to her class, she corrects herself and rightfully claims that the answer is, she does not know. And in a brilliant decision, she demands everyone to write about Q or about how they can make sense of it all: life, death, pain, take ur pick. Haley's speech about Literature and how ancient civilizations left behind stories of their own in an effort to make sense of such difficult things couldn't resonate more with my own English-majored lil heart. When pain or loss or grief or just plain sadness creeps in, how do you cope? How do you let it be known that you suffered or are still suffering? 

"Life is Short."
Maybe it is cliche. Maybe it is a phrase used so often that we forget that it has real, true, honest meaning. But there were several instances throughout the episode that highlight what it truly means to comprehend this significant thought. One example is Peyton telling Brooke not to let the "bitter ones make her forget how awesome she is." This is extremely important for Brooke to hear. Because we don't want her to become bitter and vicious like Victoria. We want to see her win despite all the crap her mother puts her through. We want to believe it for ourselves, that even when shit goes down, we can find a way to get through it... and it definitely helps when we're not alone. 

So many examples come to mind with this theme and I truly love OTH because of how they set up these important relations on the show. One of the first things that comes to mind is how Haley, Nathan, and Jamie all were connected to Q in their own different ways. And what better proof of that than when they visit Q's mom. Not to take away from the relationships Q had with Lucas and Skillz but let's be honest, we were most sad for the Haley/Nathan/Jamie clan more than anyone. Q had become family to them. For Nathan, Q was an image of himself. More importantly a version of himself who he could help NOT turn out like he did. And to solidify their bond even more, Q was actually helping Nathan get his game back. These two were tied by their bball dream--especially by the times when they almost lost that dream. (Nate's accident that lost him his NBA offer and Q's punching out K Fed that led to the chance of him not even playing bball.) In the case of Haley, Q represented the first real student she was able to reach out to. When we first met Q, he was loud, obnoxious, abrasive (hmm reminds me of an ex who plays bball =X) but with Haley's help, Q turned out to be a pretty decent guy. And if it wasn't for Haley pushing him to be better, who knows if anyone could have ever reached him? Lastly, poor poor poor Jamie. God, u gotta love this kid. Yes, he's supposed to be some intelligent brainiac child--but emotionally, he's pretty damn developed too. I might even go as far as to say that he handled Q's death better than any one of the grown ups! From refusing to believe Q would never play again, to asking for Q's jersey (only to give it to Q's little brother later), to the scene where he refuses to miss Q's funeral. "Q was my friend, and I want to say good-bye." ::SOBS:: 

...But perhaps the best moment of the entire episode was when Jamie pulls out the cape and lays it on top of Q's coffin. That MOMENT just put me over the edge. I had been tearing the entire episode and after that, I just lost it. For one, Brooke was standing by him and you could tell that in that same moment everything she felt, everything she had been holding in, everything she didn't know how to cope with.... just came POURING OUT. It was as if the cape was a shroud to cover her own pain and she was finally able to release it all without shame. This closing scene was just PURE brilliance.

Ok before I wrap this up, I just wanna mention some other moments of the episode that were also good because of how much it adds to the this idea of Human Connection. For lack of time, I'll just mention two. The first is Deb and Skillz. Of course their affair is ridiculous and hardly realistic. But even in ridiculous and hardly realistic relationships, we can find ourselves rooting for them if we can feel there is a connection between two people. Nevermind that Deb is old enough to be a grandmother. Nevermind Q and her hooked up through the internet. When she walks over to him at the funeral and stands by his have to admit that she MUST care for him. And the truth is, you HAVE to believe that. Because you WANT to believe that. Because again, no one should go through such pain alone. 

On that note, I thank the writers of OTH soooo much for writing in the Haley/Brooke and Nathan/Brooke scene. Brooke is in a very dark, deep, and disturbing place right now and I have been watching since the premiere with such anticipation. Will she go crazy? Will she become a bitch? Will she do something she'll regret?! Because of these scenes in which both Haley and Nathan check in with Brooke, I'm not completely relieved, but I feel a little better that somehow... if she does go over to the dark side, there will be good people to pull her out. I am sooo glad that it was Haley and then Nathan who reached out to her. (shut up Leyton fans, bc I really do not believe Peyton and Lucas can help her with this). The fact of the matter is, Brooke is alone. VERY alone. Compared to everyone else on the show, she is flying solo. Even Deb and Skillz find each other. Mouth & Milli are having a blast in Omaha, Peyton and Lucas just got engaged. Which brings me back to the point that it is so important that Nathan tells her that it is HER who they are worried about and it is HER that they want to ask if there's anything they can help with. Basically he and Haley are the best people to reach out because they have a family to offer. I can only hope that Brooke will find solace somehow and it wont resort to other extremes.  

But seriously, Human Connection is sooooooo important. I can tell this Samantha Walker character will be trouble but the essay that was written for her by the OTH writers got it right. Someone, or anyone for that matter, should be jealous of Q because he did have human connections and proof of this is how he was extremely loved and missed by those who knew him. ***So this one's out to Haley, isn't that the point? Maybe it's another cliche, but maybe...death, loss, grief, and pain... the point of all those things is that they're a way to reveal what human connections we've had, still have, and will always have.

FRINGE Premiere Commentary 9.9.08

I must admit, this was a very strong and promising pilot. From its creepy, see-thru zombie like creatures to the teensy bit corny moments, witty banter and eerily familiar issues with our ever advancing science, FRINGE puts on a great premiere episode and I look forward to watching more of it (even though I will probably only be able to watch it if someone is watching with me because I'm a wuss and can't watch alone.) Now, let's proceed to a breakdown of this solid, first episode.


ahhh... the ole airplanes in a storm scene....(reminds me of Lost! lol...) Ok... you know sh*t is about to go down when there's a creepy, sweaty man who can't just sit still during a traditional electric storm. So he injects himself with an insulin shot that turns out to be ingested with chemicals that by contact of the electricity or whatever...(not really sure) turns the whole plane into a f*cked up zombie looking gut, flesh, and bone death trap.....but LUCKILY! because of our progressive technology! the plane is able to land itself! (hmm.. good to know that if this were to actually happen, a plane carrying a deadly virus could safely land itself to infect all of us =/ yikes!] Moving on... the credits remind me of House in that it shows different symbols and icons that represent the eerie FRINGE science of it all. Very nice touch with the end of icon "Fringe" piecing together or dissolving (just like what one would imagine is... Fringe-like.) 


So if you're a bitter, jaded pessimist like me... you'd take one look at that relationship between Olivia and Agent Scott and KNOW he is definitely UP to something. Inter-office relationships... always bad. Especially when you're initially shown in a skeezy motel-after sex romp scene, followed by a call to report for duty in which lover (aka Agent Scott) acts like ur just another colleague when people are around. Later, after a seemingly awkward conversation in which "i love you"'s are exchanged, we see Agent Scott suffer a chemical explosion that leaves him looking like those plane victims. 

Unfortunately, no one knows how to stop the toxins from spreading. So Olivia researches for a doctor or scientist specializing in flesh and finds Dr. Bishop. (she must have a great Google filter since she found the best guy for the job after one search!) We come to find out Dr. Bishop is, well...a little nutty. A very vague account of an experiment gone wrong that landed an assistant dead and him in the mental asylum is introduced, thereby needing his next of kin to be summoned since only immediate family can visit. Enter Pacey--er, I mean, Peter Bishop. High IQ, in debt, and on the run who despises his father and is reluctant to help Olivia but obviously there is an attraction and were already rooting for this clearly BETTER man. 

So we find that Dr. Bishop was once the head of Fringe science (science that involves weird freaky stuff that isn't real or is it?!) and he shared a lab with Massive Dynamics CEO William Bell. (who we also find isn't very cooperative and has a snooty, spooky assistant with freaky robot arm!) To make a LONG story short, we witness Olivia do everything in her power to save her beloved Agent Scott (including some freaky LSD, brain-probing experiment and chasing down Creepy Sweaty Man's twin who used to work for William Bell and killed his own brother). Finally, with the help of ever-so-sweet and saving the day Pace--er, Peter (sorry), Olivia is able to get the info she needs in order for them to reverse the chemical reaction and save Agent Scott. With all this great detective work under her belt, she is approached by a superior who is impressed by her work and wants her to work for him in investigating additional weird scientific occurrences that seem to make up a "pattern." But Olivia doesn't want to hear it. She just wants to go back to before. Meaning she's more concerned with getting back to Agent Scott.

...but here's the twist.

Agent Scott WAS IN ON THE PLANE'S WEIRD ZOMBIE DEATH TRAP! He actually put the twin brother up to sacrificing his brother's life in order to unleash the chemicals! WTF!!! So then the newly cured Agent Scott kills the twin brother as Olivia is rushing back to the hospital to warn everyone. A car chase ensues and Mr. I Love You is now trying to run Olivia off the road! (i knew he was a jerk!) But Karmas a bitch and his SUV flips over. Olivia rushes to his side and despite her efforts, he doesn't give her the name of who he was working for. Poor girl. After spending almost the entire episode trying to save the man she loves, he turns out to have been the enemy. So with her freshly broken heart and trust and all the other craziness she's witnessed in the past few days, she realizes... maybe she really can't go back to before.

So she rushes back to the lab where Dr. Bishop and Peter are about to leave. Apparently, Dr. Bishop has briefed Peter on the freaky experiments he and William Bell used to do in their old lab. Now Peter wants to get the hell away from there ASAP. But....the attraction is strong and once Olivia asks for their help.... it's clear we're witnessing the beginning of a wonderful series. 


I'd have to say the best moment was right before Olivia entered her drug induced LSD trip to meet with her beloved Agent Scott in unconscious land. ONLY because as he so sexily applied those wires to her body, Peter says, "i hope your guys worth it." ::SIGH:: only Joshua Jackson could deliver such simple, yet endearing lines. The father son connection between him and John Noble was also convincing. The woman cast as Nina Sharp (William Bell's snooty assistant) was perfect for the role. That robot hand was very eerie. And to close out the episode we see her announcing they will question Agent Scott's dead corpse. Ooook...freaky much? And overall, the entire episode was shot very nicely. From aerial views to just the picture was almost like watching a movie, not a tv show. Good job J.J. Abrahams... (psh, like u needed my approval, ur a TV god!)

The Hills 09.01.08

"how would you like to be dumped?" 

hahahha... I forgot how much I love this show. This episode is probably the best one so far this season. Even better than the premiere. And from the previews of next weeks episode, the season is finally picking up on what it does best. With that said, how Awesome is it that Whitney may finally have a real boy toy on the show! its about damn time!! and I must say her and Alex have way more chemistry than Lauren and Doug. And can I get a boss like that to hook me up with a model!! If only my friends could learn how to set me up on a date like that, maybe I would've coughed up the balls to do some damage this past weekend! =X

Lauren and Doug....I sooo knew that relationship was going nowhere! That's right, I knew it and so did Brody! (lol...yes, great minds think alike.) How EFFIN cute are Lauren and Brody anyway! God can they please get together already!!!! The fact that he watches out for her and already knows which guys aren't right for her... Can u just be the One already!! why do these people who belong together play with my emotions!!?!! I can't even live vicariously thru these people's romantic relationships anymore! 

Heidi, Speidi who? I think the most interesting thing regarding that whole part of the cast is when Stephanie says, "it used to be a hamster but now its a guinea pig." uhhhh huh..... THATS why you and Spencer are related! thanks for reminding me that you're both STUPID!!! lol anyway... 

Best quote:

"My type is someone I've already dated."

Oh it's sooo silly how much Lauren and I have in common sometimes. LOL...I think once upon a time I had this same conversation! I can't wait for next week. The countdown to Audrina's getting kicked out could have started. And Brody and Doug in jail!!! Whaaaaaatttt...! and of course, Frankie manages to stay out of trouble. He really is the smartest of the bunch. lol...that's kinda sad. He's like Fez but smarter. haha... go Frankie!

Gossip Girl Premiere!!

3 words, 8 letters. ::SOBS:: Why didn't you just say it Chuck!?!?!!? if you and Blair are truly meant to be together...WHY DIDNT YOU SAY IT!!!! Why do boys NEVER just say it! lol...You know what, it's ok. Because clearly you still love her and you'll be pining over her all this season and somehow you'll whisk her away from the dashing British lord. But after you learn your lesson. Besides, that British accent is just what the cast needed. (ironically Ed Westwick aka Chuck has an accent in real life!) He is a little on the dry side though... I already forgot his name... James, was it? Well, he would still be the perfect distraction/rebound for Blair. But only for the meantime. As for other introduced story lines, well...
Nate and an older, married woman... Hmmm... a lil too cliche for me. I need that story line to get a lot juicier and more original if continued. Dan and Serena get back together... was it just me or was that WAY too easy?! ::sigh:: that just means they've got a hell of school year coming at them. To be honest I didn't really care where Vanessa was. And lil J gettin snubbed as an intern, didn't we see enough of her being snubbed last year? As far as season premieres go, this one was just a tad bit too tame for me, especially it being Gossip Girl and all. But here's to hoping it'll get much more controversial. XOXO =)

One Tree Hill Season Premiere

I just knew the opening was too good to be true, but lemme indulge in it once again. Oh that first fantasy shot of Lucas married to Brooke....I speak for all Brucas fans when I say it was THE best way to start off the season. I thought it was very wise of the writers to write in a possible scenario with each of the girls so that everyone would be pleased. Except that when Lucas' quickie fiance really turned out to be Peyton, I felt like vomiting.  But whatever, I've been told I'm biased. But in defense of Brucas fans everywhere, Brooke was the first and the longest of the imaginary wedding anniversaries--that's gotta count for something! 

Now that the biggest news is out (Lucas picks Peyton::yawn::), let's move on to the other shocking plot additions this season. First of all, NANNY CARRIE...aka CRAZY FUCKIN BITCH ran over DAN! and is now keeping him hostage in her creepy dead father's old hospital stuff. WTF! I'm already scared for what crazy shit she's gonna try to do to hurt anyone in her way. Poor Naley, there's always something going wrong. And how cute was Jamie and Haley dancing to Flo-rida!! ::tear:: Why can't this family just stay HAPPY! ::Sobs:: And Nathan's back problem... will he never live his dream and play for the NBA!? Hopefully he does someday so we can get some cute NBA stars on the show. What is the deal with Mouth moving to Omaha?? I can't decide if its more excruciating to watch Deb with Skillz (coz its pretty gross), Mouth and Millicent (coz its semi boring and corny), or Lucas and Peyton in their skeezy Las Vegas hotel room with mirrors on the ceiling...(coz they are just soo gay together--Leyton fans be damned!) But nothing could shock me or break my poor lil heart more than seeing Brooke ALONE!!! 

So alone in fact, that she gets mugged right before the damn episode ends! WHY OH WHY do the writers hurt me this way! The previews for next week look very dark and I just can't stand knowing that Brooke is always saving her friends and yet at this moment she's left ALL alone!! makes me sick. Since Lucas is an idiot for thinking he's destined to be with Peyton, we've got to work on getting her a decent man! I've heard that Owen the Bartender will be back this season, but I really didn't find that prospect to be that interesting. I'll even take Chase or Angie's doctor, Ethan. He seemed genuinely interested in her. My goodness... Nothing could have prepared me for that horrific ending and I was expecting someone to get fucked coz everyone seemed to be a lil too happy and we all know that doesn't happen for very long in Tree Hill. I guess I'll have to hold on to the opening scenes of Brooke and Lucas to get me thru until next week. POOR, poor Brooke. ::sniff::

The Hills Season Premiere!! 8.18.08

Ok, so I've been following my ultimate reality heroine Lauren Conrad for quite some time now. From Laguna Beach to Hollywood Hills...I've witnessed the cute, but flawed not meant to be Stephen years, the cute, but flawed not meant to be Jason years, and the recent cute, but (again) flawed not meant to be Brody season. CAN WE PLEASE find this poor girl a decent, Meant To Be boy?! Her life is starting to imitate my own! Let's see... I guess the best way to describe this season opener is how the 3 girls reacted to the question "how to describe this season." They all hesitated and accordingly said 3 unconnected answers. In an essence, that is how I felt about this first episode. Here's why...

I don't care (and have never cared) what anyone says.... to me, "the Drama is Real." Or at least, I felt it, wished it, and forcefully believed it to be so--- up until now. My once borderline scripted soap still had some aspects that made emotions and connections seem real even if dialogue wasn't. But after this first episode, I have to admit that some of the scenes just felt a little bit too contrived. What happened to the reality show that no matter how publicly fake it was, I still fought hard to believe it was real?! Doug and Frankie are suddenly best buds and wear matching Laker jerseys?! Where the hell was Brody? Is this a weak attempt at a metaphor by using Doug as a visual replacement for Brody? If it is, it's almost an insult to audience members like me who are still rooting for a real significant romance for Lauren. Plus! It isn't even entertaining at all! Doug was a TOTAL BORE. I guess we're supposed to be more interested when we find out that Stephanie Pratt goes behind Lauren's back and goes out on a date with him. Perhaps. But if people like me don't like and more importantly, don't care about him in this first episode, why would it matter that he's seeing Stephanie?! We already KNOW he's not right for Lauren! and let's not kid ourselves... Lauren is the only reason this show has lasted for so long. She's the character most girls identify with. She's the reason we watch.

On a completely opposite level is the supposed new Speidi controversy. OOOoooH... Heidi's sister (who totally needed that LA makeover) wants to move in with the newly made-up couple. BIG EFFIN DEAL. I could care less. Didn't Heidi and Spencer say that they didn't wanna sign on for another season because it's not very glamorous or something to be on a reality show? Ugh this bit was soooo boring, id rather hear about what went down at Bolthouse when Heidi supposedly got in "big trouble." Come on, if its all fake anyway, let the audience see her get FIRED. Oh look, I'm done with this insignificant portion of the show already. 

Okay, Audrina's Birthday party. First of all... I think its rather interesting that everytime Audrina has friends on the show, they make it seem like these people are from another planet. Giant earplugs, Neon colored mohawks, Justin Bobby! These people exist in Beverly Hills?!!? With that said, I really do appreciate her presence and the presence of her friends on this show! Because it completely exposes the very real fact that not everyone in the world is as rich, white, and mainstream as Lauren (god help her) and all of her other friends. 

I must admit that the part of the show with the most REALITY value was Lo and Audrina's not so peppy "pep talk." I have truly loved Lo since Laguna Beach days and though I understand how she can easily be perceived as "bitchy," I also know she just doesn't bullshit with people. Ahhh... two traits I can identify with. So maybe I'm a little biased but as much as I do like Audrina, the "we can never be friends" line doesn't exactly make her look like the bigger person. Neither does that shot of her taking her top off in the pool with Justin Bobby in the previews. One can only wait and see what other crap she'll take from that ruggedly handsome, burping, rebel withOUT a cause. 

Thrilling. Romance. and what did Lauren say as her answer to the word describing this season? I already forgot. Hopefully the following episodes will be better otherwise, I may start a petition for a spinoff starring Frankie-- who is the show's unexpected philosopher. LOL... the guy always finds himself asking the superficially rhetorical questions of the show. It's like hearing Meredith Grey or Lucas Scott's voiceover but on a reality show, thereby making it as I said before, superficially rhetorical. And yet, I still watch.

Pre-FALL TV Premiere Commentary

Upon entering the month of August, one is quick to think about September and the following Fall season. Leaves will change colors, the winds will pick up, kids will begin back-to-school shopping, and I will once again start planning this year's big event (another birthday party of yours truly, of course). But all of this is really tantamount to the exciting new FALL TV LINEUP! From hunky heroes to deliciously backstabbing gossip girls, here is a preview to what will prove to consume much of my time and attention for the next several months. (til January when the midseason stuff begins-- then i'll really be Lost!)

what i'll be watching: this night belongs primarily to the CW. First of all, GOSSIP GIRL was my favorite new show last season. And those ads promoting "every parent's nightmare" as a response to the pathetic moms and dads who rallied to accuse the show of its bad influences....fucking BRILLIANT. Then to be followed by ONE TREE HILL! It's every scheming/wicked/dramatic/bitchy girl's dream! (yes, i described myself, don't hate.) The only problem is.... the needy, girly, still-hoping-for-a-Brooke-and-Lucas-reunion side of me will have to battle it out with the hardcore sci-fi nerd in me because HEROES is on at the same time as OTH. its a toss up as to who will get put on the streamline list, but if OTH begins to have too much of those hi-im-Peyton-and-im-emo-all-the-time episodes....HEROES it IS.

what else is on: Dancing with the Stars... over it. (never really into it for that matter), Samantha Who? at 9:30 (which i find such a bizarre time slot) i absolutely love this show and kudos to Christina Applegate. it will definitely be on my streamlining list. Chuck, my apologies for not being able to watch this show, I hear good things. How I Met Your Mother and Terminator: Sarah Conner Chronicles are also shows I need to find time to start watching. And last but not least, Prison Break.... I will not attempt to deny that I missed the entire last season. Until I do, it wouldn't be right to watch this coming one. I truly hope I hear redeeming things about it.

what i'll be watching: these nights will solely belong to FOX. Last season's HOUSE finale was by far the best written, best directed, and best performed season finale-- a complete masterpiece of shocking moments, heart-breaking moments, and just DAMN good tv! Watching how the reverberations of what happened unfold will be a delight. In addition to Hugh Laurie and co. Fox has the highly anticipated FRINGE shortly following. This sci-fi/fantasy-esque premiere starring (one of my former loves) Joshua Jackson (yes, Pacey. bless his heart!) is produced by none other than J.J.Abrams of Lost himself. It's gotta be worth watching, right? Let's hope so. 

what else is on: not much of a competition guys...Opportunity Knocks (game show comes to your home! --er, sounds lame and kinda creepy). The Mentalist (psychic turned detective....blah blah). NCIS (JAG thanks). The Biggest Loser: Families (why didn't my family get chosen?) Without a Trace, and Eli-are u frakkin kiddin me got resigned??--Stone. Oh and yes, the return of 90210. Ok, its not that I'm not excited about it, but given the recent hesitation from Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering, the premise that the newly moved kids Dad as the new West Bev High principal, and dammit! I still haven't forgiven Kelly for stealing Dylan from Brenda... I'm just not exactly happy they chose to bring this show back. I mean, by all means, make it a great show and I will issue a formal apology but they frak this up... it'd be just sad.

what i'll be watching: i think Wednesdays will be the day I do most of my homework since the shows that will be airing aren't exactly must-see TV. the only thing I'll look forward to is Dirty Sexy Money sans Samaire Armstrong as a regular cast member. It had many good moments last season but was it memorable? the jury is still out. but I am glad it was renewed as opposed to some of the shows listed below.

what else is on: Welcome back CSI, Criminal Minds, Deal or No Deal, Bones, and Top Model. But Lipstick Jungle?!?! seriously!? How did this show get renewed and not the better, more interesting Cashmere Mafia?! and no disrespect to Shonda Rimes (coz i luv her!) but Private Practice needs some ooomph! to it. I loved the characters of Amy Breneman and Paul Adelstein. Can we focus more on them and less on Addison and Pete. We've been there and done that! Pushing Daisies, I'd like to start watching but I'm still traumatized from the power of touch since I watched the movie Fallen so it may take me awhile. and last but not least, Knight Rider. Although the mini-movie premiere was watched by many, I'm sure some of those viewers found it to be VERY....corny? campy? really, really bad writing? Let's hope they made some significant changes over the past couple of months. It'd be a shame to get cancelled (especially since it took Jamie and Babe away from All My Children).

what i'll be watching: luckily my Thursday line-up will stay the same. ABC with its Ugly Betty, Greys Anatomy combo is my most expected solid 2 hours of the week on TV. I hear Henry isn't signed on as a regular cast member. Does that mean we'll be seeing a serious relationship between Betty and Gio??! And poor Derek and Meredith...yeah, they FINALLY got together on the finale but where the hell did McDreamy run off to!? and mothereffin Izzie is officially not being written off. Merde!

what else is on: Supernatural and Smallville if ur looking for some Abercrombie turned actor looking types. I hear Supernatural is good. I dont give a shit about Smallville.  Survivor and CSI..blah. Moment of Truth... hmm.. didn't really enjoy watching all those liars on TV. where's the fun in lying and getting caught by everyone!? My Name is Earl and The Office are the only shows worth streamlining. 

psh...yeah right, I have to get out sometime. these are nights to interact with REAL people. 

this is the day of rest and detox from the two days before. i'll definitely watch DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES--more out of habit and loyalty than interest. and of course, my dearly treasured BROTHERS AND SISTERS. I cannot stress enough what a great show this is. Mostly because of the incredible chemistry all the characters have. They get along soooooo tremendously well that it extends right out of the TV screen into your own home. the result: YOU are a part of this crazy, nutty, lovable, funny, adorable family. Watch it if you don't already love it. 

....well there you have it. a preview of what's to come. For a list of showtimes and premiere dates check out in the meantime, catch up on all those shows you didn't finish. Fall is just around the corner!!
