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.

The Moment Of Truth


Could you? Would you? Tell the truth for half a million dollars!! Even if telling the truth means you might get fired from your job or divorced from your spouse?

The Moment Of Truth. A New television show airing TONIGHT @ 9/8 C on Fox.

I am SO watching this.

“While contestants are strapped to a lie detector test, at a chance to win $500,000 participants have to tell the truth. Of course, the questions are easier when the stakes are low – but as the prize amount increases, they will be challenged to fess up to matters they might normally lie about. The touchier questions could be especially revealing because participants reveal their answers in front of spouses, relatives and friends, hanging on every word. What deep dark secret will someone divulge for hundreds of thousands of dollars?”

Lets Find Out!

Celebrity Apprentice


Last night’s episode of The Celebrity Apprentice was AWESOME.


Because the ego maniac, and highly UNATTRACIVE (and quite bullheaded) Gene Simmons was rightfully BOOTED. I mean, how dumb can one person be? Donald Trump GAVE him the name of the woman that should have been fired. What did the ‘brianiac’ Gene Simmons do? He set her FREE. Nely Galan, who drove the Kodak executives absolutely UP THE WALL, never shut her mouth long enough to figure out WHAT THE CLIENT was looking for. I cannot believe she was excused from facing the Board Room. Not only did Gene MISS THE MARK COMPLETELY when it came to The Task, but he wasn’t bright enough to figure out how to save his own ass. He deserved to be FIRED on every conceivable level.

My FAVORITE part of last night’s episode? The ‘surprise’ guest appearance. My Husband, Alec Baldwin. Mmmm. The Baldwin Brothers are all fantastic and completely out of their minds, which of course makes them all the more attractive to me, however, Alec is the LOVE OF MY LIFE.

When Alec showed up to help support his brother Stephen my heart was a flutter. Alec was sofa king funny. He is so handsome, so adorable and hilarious. [insert swooning]. I hope and pray that Stephen Baldwin never gets fired. This way there is always the slim possibility of another Alec sighting.
