HELLO … IT’S ME …

HELLO

IT’S ME

AND I’M STILL ADDICTED TO WATCHING TOO MUCH TV …

 

It’s been a while.

Yeah.

Like, a really long while.

Whatevs.

 

I’m not going to waste anyone’s time with details, excuses, or dramatic re-enactments explaining my disappearance. Aint nobody got time for that. This isn’t an episode of Snapped.

However?

And, luckily for y’all…

My undying love – for all things television – has NOT been compromised.

not. even. a. little.

In fact – during my unexplained absence – my love affair with TV has grown even stronger.

 

 

With the newest viewing options; from cable and networks providing ondemand capabilities – to Smart TV’s and RoKu apps, such as: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime?

I’ve inevitably developed a sixth-sense.

For real, people.

I’ve been given a gift. Finding the most awesome television shows, ever.

Some people read fortunes, see the dead, or communicate with the other side. Other people provide stock options, develop retirement plans, or figure out super fancy shit with money. Some people learn. Some people teach. Some people have degrees. And some people just flip burgers or mop floors.

I am not any of those people.

I’m just a television junkie. Committed to all things TV since 1974.

 

 

And I am here to give you the inside info.

  1. I’ll let you know when something is worthy of binge-watching. And I’ll give you the reasons why.
  1. I’ll let you know when something is NOT worthy of binge-watching. And I’ll give you those reasons why.

 

Why?

Because I’m nice like that.

 

 

On the other hand?

I am NOT going to research facts, or spend hours perusing IMBD, or spend one second looking up Rotten Tomato or other notable Critic Scores. I am NOT going to read reviews before, during, or after – watching any show, on any venue, ever.

This is just an unbiased and un-researched television junkie’s blog.

That. Is. All.

 

So…

Brew some coffee, or pour yourself a cocktail, and let’s watch worthy TV, together, again!

Hope y’all enjoy my recommendations, as much as I enjoy watching these shows.

 

* PS: Suggestions are ALWAYS welcome, usually on my Facebook account. Except for anything SyFy and/or History. NO. Because, BORING. Denied.
FYI: I favor crime/suspense/murder/mystery – on any & all venues. And then I will lean on: Comedy, HGTV, IDTV, BRAVOTV, or even Reality TV, when desperate.

Charlie Sheen Is Going Off The Rails On A Crazy Train

Last night I sat down to watch ABC’s 20/20 interview with Charlie Sheen. After witnessing him self-destruct on CNN with Piers Morgan, I thought nothing could surprise me. But I was wrong. Very. Wrong.

To say Charlie Sheen is off the deep-end would be the understatement of the decade. Not even the world’s greatest fiction writer could come up with the disturbing statements that came out of his mouth.

I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available. If you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.”

“I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars.”

“If you borrowed my brain for five seconds, you’d be like, ‘Dude! Can’t handle it, unplug this bastard!’ “It fires in a way that’s maybe not from, uh… this terrestrial realm.”

“I was banging seven-gram rocks, because that’s how I roll. I have one speed, I have one gear: Go.”

“Look what I’m dealing with, man, I’m dealing with fools and trolls.”

“I’m bi-winning.” “The only thing I’m addicted to right now is winning.”

“I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words — imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists.”

“ CBS picked a fight with a warlock.”

“I will not believe that if I do something then I have to follow a certain path because it was written for normal people. People who aren’t special. People who don’t have tiger blood and Adonis DNA.”

I literally stared at my television with my mouth wide open and my jaw on the floor. I had no idea just how delusional Charlie Sheen has become. And quite frankly, it’s alarming at best. Although I have to admit, Charlie made ONE coherent and rather lucid statement when he said something along the lines of how it’s disturbing when ‘Breaking News’ revolves around what’s been happening in his personal life as opposed to what’s happening in Libya.

Yet clearly, Charlie should NOT be giving live interviews on television. Especially considering his publicist, Stan Rosenfield, recently dropped him as a client. And here’s a little tip, Charlie, please do not speak with the media while you are obviously undergoing crack-cocaine withdrawl. It’s too upsetting to watch.

While I don’t particularly believe the fact that he’s a mega celebrity means he has an obligation to present himself as a role model to the general public. However he most certainly has an obligation to his family and all five of his children.

What’s happening to Charlie is indeed very sad. My heart and sympathy go out to his father Martin Sheen. As a parent myself I can’t even begin to imagine how Martin must feel watching his son, Charlie, completely unravel AND in front of America. It has to be absolutely devastating.

As of late, Charlie has lost his job, he’s lost his children, and seemingly he’s lost his mind. I fear if he continues down this destructive path he’s going to join the ranks of Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson.

* I am participating in the Charlie The Rock Star from Mars Sheen Blog Carnival on Tribal Blogs.

So tell me boys and girls, what are YOUR thoughts on Charlie Sheen?

The Good Wife

picture-24

The Good Wife,  is a new series on CBS airing TONIGHT at 10/9C. And, not to abuse the term LOVE, but I have always loved Julianna Margulies and Chris Noth. For. Real.

As for the premise of the show, Julianna Margulies plays the role of: Alicia Florrick, wife and mother who boldly assumes full responsibility for her family and re-enters the workforce after her husband’s very public sex and political corruption scandal lands him in jail. While Chris Noth who plays the role of: Peter Florrick, her husband, the cheating politician.

About The Show:

THE GOOD WIFE is a drama starring Emmy Award winner Julianna Margulies as a wife and mother who boldly assumes full responsibility for her family and re-enters the workforce after her husband’s very public sex and political corruption scandal lands him in jail. Pushing aside the betrayal and public humiliation caused by her husband, Peter, Alicia Florrick starts over by pursuing her original career as a defense attorney. As a junior associate at a prestigious Chicago law firm, she joins her longtime friend, former law school classmate and firm partner Will Gardner, who is interested to see how Alicia will perform after 13 years out of the courtroom. Alicia is grateful the firm’s top litigator, Diane Lockhart, offers to mentor her but discovers the offer has conditions and realizes she’s going to need to succeed on her own merit. Alicia’s main competition among the firm’s 20-something new recruits is Cary, a recent Harvard grad who is affable on the surface, but is competitive to the core. Fortunately, Alicia finds an ally in Kalinda, the firm’s tough in-house investigator. Gaining confidence every day, Alicia transforms herself from embarrassed politician’s scorned wife to resilient career woman, especially for the sake of providing a stable home for her children, 14-year-old Zach and 13-year-old Grace. For the first time in years, Alicia trades in her identity as the “good wife” and takes charge of her own destiny.

I am not sure this show will end up on my Must See TV list, but, it certainly something worth checking out! What do you think?

So Many Choices Tonight

‘Gossip Girl ‘ (8PM, The CW)
Poor Dan Humphrey … guess he hasn’t read the ‘Gossip Girl’ books, because if he had, he’d know that the new rich kid on the block is one Aaron Rose, destined to be the next boy toy on the arm of one Serena van der Woodsen.  Of course, in the books, Dan is also bisexual, so the TV series will probably never be 100 percent faithful to the book series, but it is true that Aaron (‘Stick It’ star John Patrick Amedori) is Serena’s new Dan. Meanwhile, Humphrey kid Jenny makes a new friend in the rebellious Agnes, who convinces Little J that she needs to make a bold move with her fashion career, lest Blair’s mom squash it before it even begins.

[Yes I Like This Show.]

‘Heroes’ (9PM, NBC)
Good guy gone bad (Suresh), baddie (Sylar) with a chance to do good and save his bro (Peter) and a major catfight throwdown (Claire and the returning Elle) … there’s a little something for everyone. Trapped and terrified, Nathan and Tracy (Adrian Pasdar, Ali Larter) fight for their lives against a much-changed, monstrous Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) to free themselves and the doctor’s other test subjects. Elle (guest star Kristin Bell) returns with a surprise for Claire (Hayden Panettiere) and her family, and Angela (Cristine Rose) tries to persuade Sylar (Zachary Quinto) to save Peter (Milo Ventimiglia).

[Im So OVER This Show.]

‘One Tree Hill’ (9PM, The CW)
Lucas’ cheesy prose not only makes his second novel a hit, but a big Hollywood so-and-so wants to option it for a movie. Only on The CW, kids, only on The CW.

[Blah.]

‘My Own Worst Enemy’ 10PM, NBC

Edward treks off to Mexico to get info on Russian weaponry, but gets double-crossed. So what happens when a guy with dual personalities is double-crossed? We dunno, but it sounds like math might be involved.

[And we generally try to avoid math of any sort.]

‘Boston Legal’ 10PM, ABC
Murderous Catherine Piper (Betty White) returns to get help from Crane, Poole & Schmidt because, this time, she blew up her doctor. In her defense, she only meant to burn his office down; exploding him was a miscalculation. Elsewhere, Alan and Denny hit a dude ranch.

[[[HELL YES!!]]]

Chuck 8:00 PM, NBC

A life in espionage starts to take its toll on Chuck (Zachary Levi) who’s forced to try and explain his unusual behavior to Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) and the Buy More efficiency expert (guest star Tony Hale), but a new assignment only complicates things. Then, a global terrorist comes looking for Jeff (Scott Krinsky), and Chuck has to socialize with him in order to find out what role he plays in the mission.

[I love Chuck.]

The Big Bang Theory 8:00 PM, CBS

He got the brains; she got the looks. Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) twin sister, Missy (guest star Courtney Henggeler), is in town, and it’s lust at first sight for Leonard, Howard and Raj (Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar). Sheldon puts an end to their competition for her attention by telling them he’ll decide whom she dates. A confidence drug helps Raj talk to Missy and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) but wears off at the worst possible time.

[Either way?]

 

NFL Football 8:30 PM, ESPN

Look who’s in first place in the AFC South. For once, it’s Peyton Manning looking up at a rival, in this case Kerry Collins and the Tennessee Titans, who could enter tonight’s game in Nashville against the Colts a perfect 6-0. Last year these two teams split their season series, and it was Collins, in relief of an injured Vince Young, who engineered a second-half comeback versus Indy in Week 17 to get Tennessee into the playoffs.

[No Thank You.]

 

Primal Fear 9:00 PM, HIST

This two-hour documentary looks into what drives our fears and how they strike terror in an individual. Each fear — drowning; vermin; being buried, eaten or burned alive; the unknown — will be explored by looking at its history, the science behind it and a contemporary experience. Call us crazy, but don’t all of those things seem worthy of fear? You know what’s really scary? People who don’t find that stuff scary.

[Too scared to watch that.]

My Own Worst Enemy 10:00 PM, NBC

Edward (Christian Slater) is ordered to Mexico to get schematics for Russia’s next-generation nuclear bomb and finds himself double-crossed. Henry (Slater) agrees to meet with an inquiring FBI agent after discovering Edward inadvertently put his daughter Ruthy (Bella Thorne) in danger. Tom’s (Mike O’Malley) wife, Mary Grady (Missy Yager), becomes suspicious of his many business trips and hires a private investigator.

[Too bad its up against Boston Legal] 

CSI: Miami 10:00 PM, CBS

Too bad Emmy has ignored this series — at least where the acting is concerned — because Emily Procter deserves a shot at a statue. That’s evident in this episode, in which her character, Calleigh Duquesne, is almost hit by a car. She shoots at the vehicle, and it crashes into a store, where a woman is found dead. From Calleigh’s guilt at possibly having caused the death to her relief at learning the truth — the woman was murdered — Procter’s acting is spot-on.

[I only like CSI-VEGAS]

About Life On Mars

abch-728x90-0318.jpg

Where were you in 1973? NYPD Detective Sam Tyler finds himself in the cultural hotbed of New York City in the tumultuous times of the Vietnam War, Watergate, women’s lib and the civil and gay rights movements – without a cell phone, computer, PDA or MP3 player…suddenly hurtled back in time when he’s ripped from 2008 after being hit by a car while chasing down a criminal. He’s trying mightily to understand what has just happened to him and how he can get back “home.”

What exactly is going on here? It’s like Sam is on a different planet; uncontrollable criminals, police on the take…whom can he trust? Forced to use a different moral code and without hi-tech crime fighting techniques, Sam clashes with his new boss at the 125th Precinct, the irascible Lieutenant Gene Hunt, who would rather use his fists than his brains to solve a crime. Hunt, who has earned the adoration of the men under him, does his best to hide his humanity behind a gruff exterior and great gut instincts, in contrast to Sam’s more politically correct cutting edge style. But the two begrudgingly combine to make a powerful team. Whether they like it or not.

Then there are the other squad members of the 1-2-5. Detective Ray Carling, a big, mean guy in a street-fight with life. Ray may be a rough, tough sexist, but when the chips are down, he’s a handy guy to have in your corner. Until Sam came along, Ray was the golden boy of the force and Gene’s go-to guy. It’s the man’s man against Sam’s charming wit, charisma and eerie futuristic knowledge of not just police procedure, but the whole culture, that puts them toe-to-toe in this face-off for Gene’s approval.

Annie Norris is a member of the Police Women’s Bureau. At a time when females were only allowed to do menial tasks and not real police work, she’s the smartest person in the room. Little does she know that her dream of becoming a real cop will come true. Right now she’s struggling to deal with being undermined, under-used and in general against the sexism of the times. However she’s the one person Sam can turn to to help guide him in his new reality. Theirs is a strong bond. After all, they’re both outcasts.

Rookie Detective Chris Skelton is a sweet guy trying to make it in this uncompromising world, but right now he’s out of his league with Gene and Ray. He’s impressed with Sam’s new way of looking at and thinking about policing, but that means he’s at odds with Gene and his old school style.

In his 2008 life, Sam was in love with Maya Daniels and, although Maya and Annie will never meet, Annie’s workplace battles have paved the way for Maya to become a full-fledged cop. But a fascinating, unique love triangle evolves between Sam’s “real” in-the-moment friendship with Annie, his longing to get back to Maya and the fantasy of what could be.

At home in Sam’s apartment building in the East Village, there’s Windy, a free-spirited, post-hippie chick who can teach Sam a thing or two about the cultural revolution taking place in front of his unbelieving eyes.

Just how will Sam deal with all this ambiguity while trying to remain a top detective, as he desperately attempts to get back to 2008? He might just find things aren’t so dissimilar in New York circa 1973 and 2008.

*Video Preview Here*

Cast Members Include:

Sounds even more awesome right?

The cast alone has me very very very interested in watching. Not to mention that I love when TV gives a ‘Throw Back’ to the ever so Groovy 70’s.

So which one would YOU watch?

I’m leaning towards Life On Mars.

Yes?

*Follow up post-review to follow after I decide and subsequently watch one of these.*

CSI-Vegas: Season Premiere

csi_lasvegas_season6.jpg

Oh! Hell Yes.

Ive been waiting FOREVER to find out what’s going to happen after this cliff hanger from last years season finale last year. Warrick shot in the head? And…by the head leader of the CSI department.  And so soon after the loss of Sara?

Tonight CSI -Vegas (the best one out of all the CSI’s) will premier at 9pm on CBS.

Will Warrick live or die? Will he live long enough to tell somone who shot him? Will the corruption in the department finally be exposed?

[*biting off my freshly manicured nailes with anticipation*]

Sofa King Excited!

Will you be watching? And What do you think is going to happen?

Dexter

dexter.jpg

 

I feel like I have spent the last few days cheating on my husband, Alec Baldwin. I seem to have found a new love/obsession with a serial killer named DEXTER.

This show hooked me within the first thirty seconds. After watching the complete Season One in non-stop marathon fashion it’s safe to say I am officially addicted. (And currently fearing all Ice Trucks in my immediate area.)

The flash back scenes involving Dexter as a child with his foster-father-police-officer are beyond intense. The way his father cultivates Dexter’s ‘Need To Kill’ is impressive to say a the least.

Based on Jeff Lindsay’s novels Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Dearly Devoted Dexter this crime thriller follows Dexter Morgan. Dexter is a forensic blood spatter expert for the Miami Dade Police Department. He is the main support for his sister. He has a steady girlfriend, with two kids who adore him. He also has an active “night life”. Based on a code instilled in him by his foster father, Harry, he hunts down people who have escaped justice and makes sure they don’t get away with a crime again”

Now, since I don’t subscribe to Showtime (shame on me) the only way I was ever going to be able to watch this show was waiting around for the next season on DVD’s.

I am thrilled my mother (who is also a HUGE FAN ) broke down and ordered SHOWTIME, just so we can watch this again. On Demand. wheeeeee.

Thanks Mom.

But for all of you out here still lacking  Showtime  or for whatever reason unable to buy the DVD, Dexter, is coming to CBS. I shit you not.

Debuting February 17th at 10:00 pm ET/PT.

However, I have NO IDEA how the network is going to pull this off. Dexter is a rather violent TV series with graphic language and nudity…all good things in my book, but I am afraid the show may loose some of its sharper edge in order to comply with network restrictions and time constraints?

Either way, with my favorites like House temporarily shut down (due to the writer’s strike), the never enough 30 minutes a week I am grated access to Alec & Tina on 30 Rock, and only American Idol left to fill my screen, it is SOFA KING nice to have discovered this treasure of series.

HOUSE and his fellowship candidates take on baffling cases this month as the competition at Princeton Plainsboro for the slots on House’s team comes to an exciting conclusion. In “Whatever It Takes” airing Tuesday, Nov. 6 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), House is recruited by the CIA to treat an agent with an illness as mysterious as his previous assignments, and Michael Michele guest-stars as a CIA doctor who offers up very little information about the operative’s history. Meanwhile, the fellowship candidates race to diagnose a stock car driver who passed out after a race. In “Ugly” (Tuesday, Nov. 13, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), House and his team are followed by a documentary film crew as they treat a teenager with a major facial deformity who suffered a heart attack prior to a reconstructive procedure. As they work to diagnose the teen, House finds himself distracted by several of the candidates vying for a spot on his team, causing him to question his own motives for having chosen them. Next, in the Tuesday, Nov. 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) episode “You Don’t Want to Know,” House encounters a magician whose heart failed while performing an underwater escape act. While the remaining fellowship candidates work to diagnose the illusionist, House is determined to prove that he’s a scam artist faking his ailments to cover up the fact that he nearly drowned during his act. In “Games” (Tuesday, Nov. 27, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), House assigns the candidates to a particularly challenging case – involving an uncooperative, over-the-hill former rock star with a history of drug abuse and civil disobedience – while Cuddy orders House to make a final decision and hire the members of his team.

Across the country at Finn McCool’s in West Hampton, NY, Chef Gordon meets Buddy, a retired dad who poured his entire life savings into the family restaurant, and his son, Brian, the head chef who is making everyone unhappy … including the customers.

Season Premieres

Whats On TV Tonight? Friday September 28th, 2007:

Sorry people its slim pickins for television. I am thinking of making it a DVD night. Here is the line up for tonights season premieres:
