DEXTER

Yes! Yes! Hell Mother Fucking YES!

My love affair with Michael C. Hall as DEXTER will resume this evening because Showtime will be airing a three episode mini marathon TONIGHT at 8:00pm.

I know, I know. This is not as exciting as the much anticipated Season Four Premiere. However, if they are showing a mini marathon, I simply cannot resist.

I do know that Showtime has announced John Lithgow will be joining the cast of Dexter for all 12 episodes in the upcoming fourth season. I think Lithgow will be an excellent addition to the show, considering how well he can pull of both creepy and funny. From what I’ve read, Lithgow will play a prolific serial killer named Walter Simmons. After watching Dexter’s unsuccessful attempt to train Jimmy Smits’ Miguel Prado as a thoughtful and deliberate killer during season three, I think it will be very entertaining to watch Dexter become the student again.

Season Four is set to premiere at 10/9c on Sunday, September 27, 2009.

Tosh.0

image0031

We’re a little less then a week away from the Comedy Central premiere of Tosh.0!  I wanted to send along the info to my kickawesome readers!  I’ve also included a new Tosh.0 original clip featuring comedian Todd Glass. [Todd pays Daniel a visit and has some not so nice things to say.  But perhaps he’s just jealous because he wants his own Comedy Central show as well.]

With razor sharp wit and biting commentary, comedian Daniel Tosh delves into all aspects of the Internet from the absolutely absurd to the incredibly ingenious in this new weekly, topical series, “Tosh.0” debuting next Thursday, June 4 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

“Tosh.0” goes deep into the Web, spinning commentary about blogs and vlogs both popular and obscure, tweets and pokes, popular sites and new technologies. In addition, the series will feature viral clips of the week, premiere its own original videos created by and starring well-known actors and comedians, as well as highlight a weekly “Viewer’s Choice” video chosen from among those uploaded and voted on via COMEDY CENTRAL’s flanker website, Atom .

Each episode will feature the segment “Web Redemption,” which will give subjects of infamous viral videos  a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they’ve become synonymous.

The unusual mind of Daniel Tosh has earned him the admiration of his peers by winning over audiences with his unique brand of stand-up comedy that has made him one of the most requested headliners in the country. His casual style and sharp material have proven to be greatly appreciated by his audiences, young and old (but mostly young). Named one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch” in 2005, Tosh has performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call with Carson Daly,” “Best Week Ever” (VH-1) and MTV’s “Punk’d.” On the film front, Tosh was featured in Mike Myers’ 2008 release, “The Love Guru.”

Tosh has a long history with COMEDY CENTRAL having hosted the network’s “Live at Gotham” stand-up series and performing on “Premium Blend” and “Friday Night Stand-Up.” Tosh has also been featured on the all-comedy channel in a half-hour stand-up special “COMEDY CENTRAL Presents” and his first hour-long stand-up special, “Completely Serious”. His premiere CD, “True Stories I Made Up,” was released in 2005 through COMEDY CENTRAL Records.

About Scrubs:

I *love* the TV Show Scrubs so very much. I have written about my love for this TV show time and again. Scrubs was created by Bill Lawrence back in 2001 and broadcast on NBC. The show has long since lived on my television. I welcomed every season with as much anticipation as any other thus far.

I have to admit; once George Clooney left the cast of ER back in 1999, I vowed I would never to watch another “hospital” related series. However, Scrubs takes on a completely different approach to work and life in a hospital setting with a comical twist.

Scrubs, is somewhat like the series ER, with the fast paced medical crisis and deeper hidden meanings of life. Mixed with a dash of the Seinfeld magic (four main characters which all have equal roles in each episode) and you have one very brilliant program.

The writing isn’t packed with medical jargon or overly dramatic scenes. Instead the lines are peppered with cunning sarcasm and steadfast wit. The writing is what makes the show unlike anything else out there these days. The story lines, the acting, the ever so perfect sound track, all good reasons as to why this sitcom has outlasted so many others over the past five years that have fallen short and to the wayside.

The lead character, Dr. John Dorian, “J.D.”, played by (none other than) Zack Braff, provides the viewer with his inner monologue during each episode. The seamless integration of reality and fantasy scenes are impeccable. J.D. embarks upon his forever battle to win the respect from his superior Dr. Percival “Perry Cox”, played by John C. McGinley. The never ending longing for approval and sheer nuisance of J.D.s desperate need to bond like father and son with Dr. Cox, gives way for multiple scenes in which Dr. Cox seems to get off degrading J.D. with the constant use of different female nicknames such as Vivian or Fiona. To quote Dr. Cox, “Back off Tiny Dancer, I have work to do.” Berating, all in the name of mentor. His wife, Jordan Sullivan, played by Christa Miller is the only person that can get away with giving it to Perry, and she dishes out just as much if not more to damage his super ego.

The show becomes even funnier when it is complimented by J.D.’s “man-love” for his best friend, the surgeon, Dr. Christopher Duncan “Turk”, played by Donald Faison. J.D. and Turk have an onscreen friendship that leaves you wondering, scratch that, knowing, they must be having a great time while filming. They make you want to drink apple martinis and get to know them in real life.

You add one gangly, neurotic, basket case, smarty, (and hottie) Dr. Elliot Reed, played by Sarah Chalke, a woman everyone can relate to. Every woman has been an “Elliot Reed” in one situation or another. Lest not forget to mention Sarah Chalke has a gift for the scenes that require some pretty crafty physical comedy as well.

Top that with the gossipy, know what’s best for everyone else, can’t take her own advice, heart of gold, spicy girl from The Block named Nurse Carla Espinosa, played by Judy Reyes. Nurse Carla Espinosa is married (on Scrubs) to surgeon Dr Turk, aka Dr. Turkleton.

One of the key characters in the show has to be the Janitor, played by Neil Flynn. The Janitor is the arch nemesis to J.D. Only, J.D. doesn’t know the exact nature of the Janitor’s hatred, even though it is apparent the Janitor is out to get J.D. at every turn. He may not be a lead character, but the series would not be complete without our “jumpsuit.”

The all mighty head of Sacred Heart Hospital, Dr. Bob Kelso, played by Ken Jenkins. The best way to summarize Dr. Bob Kelso is to quote him. “What has two thumbs and doesn’t give a crap? Bob Kelso, Nice to meet you.”

For the hospital’s legal department you have a mid 40 year old, spineless, still living at home with his mother, incapable of confrontation without passing out unconscious, Ted Buckland, played by Sam Lloyd

Last but certainly not least you have a possibly gay? Possibly straight? Always inappropriate, high “5? obsessed, surgeon Todd Quinlan, played by Robert Maschio

I looked forward to every single new episode. I own all of the previous seasons on DVD. The sound tracks are downloaded in my ITUNES. I watch Scrubs via syndication on Comedy Central. If you haven’t been watching Scrubs, you have seriously missed out on some of the best television program to come along!

About “Scrubs”:
The doctors and support staff of Sacred Heart Hospital are just your average band of medical professionals. You’ll find raging egomaniacs of all stripes (mostly surgeons and physicians), no-nonsense nurses, put-upon lawyers, ruthless administrators and a supremely overqualified maintenance man. Through professional ups and downs, romances and break-ups, they struggle through the drudgeries, tragedies and little victories of the health care industry. Follow J.D., Turk, Elliot and the rest of the doctors from Sacred Heart Hospital as they practice their own brand of medicine. From the evil Chief of Medicine to the crafty janitor, they’ll find that there’s plenty of humiliation that comes with the Hippocratic Oath. It’s the greatest advancement in health care since the HMO!
