Oh what can I say about Tina Fey.

She’s smart. She’s beautiful. She’s hilarious. She’s cutting edge. She is *awesome.* And, she is my hero. The End.

First, she stepped it up on SNL with this killer comedy skit.

Secondly, she topped the first SNL skit with  this killer comedy skit .

Finally, she took no prisoners and crushed it on SNL with this killer comedy skit.

(I’ve watched all of those videos at least 15 times, and I still cant get enough.)

My FAVORITE show…(aside from House, Dexter, Scrubs, Chelsea Lately, & 30 Rock) is Boston Legal. I can’t get enough.

(I know. I know… another show about lawyers? Just keep reading.)

My mother and my father have been telling me to watch the TV show Boston Legal forever now. But as usual I never listen to my parents. Who listens to their parents? I mean really. They are old, what could they possible know about good TV. On the other hand, because they are parents, they DO know! Damn them! And, as usual, (as much as it pains me to admit) they were right. I started watching this show last year and I have been HOOKED ever since!

I don’t know if Boston Legal counts as a ‘situation comedy’ exactly. Boston Legal is like both a sitcom and a drama rolled into one. You never know which way it’s going to turn. This series makes me laugh until I need the use of my asthmatic inhaler, as well as it touches a soft spot in my cold bitter and disturbed black heart. It’s spoofy-ness on the legal system isn’t too far from the truth, but with a twist.

So whatever the ‘classification; of this series may fall under, trust me when I tell you Boston Legal is worthy enough to land on all blogger pages across the world. The cast is outrageous.

William Shatner as Denny Crane. Denny Craneis the senior partner of the law firm “Crane, Pool and Schimdt” whose mental elevator does not go all the way to the top. Yet somehow he seems to have all hit wits about him when it counts the most. His sexual tendencies keep an edge on each and every episode. At one point Denny had a blow up doll made to the exact likeness of another senior partner. I may have considered doing that with Alec Baldwin, but never, EVER, with some one from work! You will truly appreciate William Shatner’s finest role since Miss Congeniality.

I also loved the episode wherein he hired a complete ‘make up team’ including application of special effects like tubing put in his face to look ‘FAKE CRY’ in order to win over a womans heart.

James Spader as Alan Shore. Alan Shore is the typically cast yuppie. Someone I would loathe if I ever came across them in real life. He is a high profile, blood sucking, doesn’t play nice (and I am sure that he colors outside of the lines) lawyer. Alan Shore is completely despised by all those he goes up against. He will stop at nothing and stoop to any level to win a case. He is a superstar at crossing witnesses and then recreating the code of ethics of the legal system. He is a powerful presence on the show. Arguably the main character and / or backbone of the show.

Each episode ends with Alan Shore and Denny Crane having a heart to heart over a nice cigar and a glass of scotch.

Candice Bergen as Shirley Schmidt.
Shirley Schmidt is the peacekeeper of an otherwise dysfunctional, yet effective, and somehow magically successful firm. Her unofficial duties include boosting the firm’s depleted moral. She manages to keep a sense of decency and an ounce of decorum that evens out the scales of insanity. She is absolutely brilliant.

If only she could teach me how to execute just a little dignity in my own office.

I am SO excited to see what is in store for this season! Wooot!

And that is just the TIP of the ice burg.

 

Other Cast members include:

John Larroquette
Role: Carl Sack

Christian Clemenson
Role: Jerry Espenson (One of The Best characters on the show. Who suffers from Aspergers Disorder)

And Many Many More.

BOOYAH.

I am sure there are many of you out here just as excited for HEROES as well. Like I said, we have a lot of GOOD television to watch tonight! Yay!

Need I Say More?

Congratulations to the shows 4 nominations: Best Drama, Hugh for Best Drama Actor, Best Drama Direction and Outstanding Music Composition. Well deserved.

In case you have been living in a cave….About The Show:

HOUSE, an innovative take on the medical drama, solves mysteries where the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients. DR. GREGORY HOUSE (Hugh Laurie) is devoid of bedside manner and wouldn’t even talk to his patients if he could get away with it. Dealing with his own constant physical pain, he uses a cane that seems to punctuate his acerbic, brutally honest demeanor. While his behavior can border on antisocial, House is a brilliant diagnostician whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts afford him a great deal of respect. An infectious disease specialist, he thrives on the challenge of solving medical puzzles in order to save lives.

And…He is Totally Super Hot.

For the past four seasons, House has shepherded an elite team of young experts who helped him unravel diagnostic mysteries. In addition, he has a good friend and confidant in oncology specialist DR. JAMES WILSON (Robert Sean Leonard). There’s some volatile chemistry between House and DR. LISA CUDDY (Lisa Edelstein), the Dean of Medicine and hospital administrator; the two are in constant conflict over House’s duties and unconventional behavior, but even she would admit that his brilliance is worth the trouble.

And the rest of the cast kick ass.

I can not wait!!
