Things that I love: Television Edition

Now, first let me say that I copied the title of this post from one of my favorite people that I haven't had the opportunity to meet, Mindy Kaling. (one of the writers for the show, "The Office" (more about that later)) Whoa...second post and I'm already doing a parenthesis within a parenthesis. Is this even allowed within the rigid structure of American grammer? Paige, comments? Anyway, I thought I'd take the time to give a little insight into some of my favorite things. Since I'm an evolver, and a word maker-upper, these "things" are subject to change, but I doubt it, at least for the next couple of months. So up first....

Television: more specifically premiere week, when all my returning favorites try to out-do each other with flashy, addictive, and belief suspending episodes. On my "God, next week can't get here fast enough...Is it next week yet...I can't take it anymore...Please put me out of my misery... In no particular order... Except for the first one" list is:

The Office where we left off: "It's a date!" Cue me..."sob..Finally!...sob...I knew this day would come!...sob... Oww the tears!...sob...These tears taste of glory!...sob. Oh sweet baby Jesus, victory is so hurts to look at it in the face...oh sweet tasting victory...sob...thank you, thank you! sob...sob." Cue Jennifer..."What is wrong with you?"

Grey's Anatomy where we left off: Mcsuicideville. Check out the last 9 or so minutes...I dare you.

Heroes where we left off: Sylar is hot. Oh and Nathan flew his brother Peter into the sky to blow-up, consequently saving the world and allowing Claire to prance around in a cheerleading outfit for another glorious season...or for her co-star Milo....dun dun dun!

Ugly Betty where we left off: I tivoed through most of it because I believe I was eating or something (shocker). But I do vaguely remember a death and a car wreck and myself thinking, nothing says comedy gold like a bunch of ugly chicks crying. So to refresh your memory and mine.

Friday Night Lights where we left off: The Panthers went to State and I'm sorry to say I do not know the outcome because I accidentally erased it before I saw the ending. Sorry Jennifer. Please don't kill me. What I can say is that the show films in Austin, yipee!, and Taylor Kitsch, aka, Tim Riggins, should reproduce and fast. Also, and not to harp on it's awesomeness, but the show is fucking unbelievable. I'm surprised my guy friends...the one or so that I have, don't watch it. Hello it's Texas...with girls being slutty.

How I Met Your Mother where we left off: No one watches this show but me so just humor me by watching this clip with Robin Sparkes. It'll blow your mind.

Flight of the Conchords: the season ended already but it's a must-see. Set your tivo's for the reruns. Here is the duo during one of their concerts. (not their show). The song is called "Business Time" and I almost fell out of my chair laughing. See Ashley, I did watch it ;)


Veronica Mars: where we left off: cancellation. Big V and crew weren't strong enough against such competition as Who Wants to Be the Next Pussycat Doll so alas it said goodbye in May. And I'll spare you my rant on how unbelievably idiotic the American public at large is... So I won't go into detail about how their pea-sized intellect can't process anything that takes a modicrum of post second grade rationalization... And I definitely won't discuss how every year it is unfathonable to me that an overproduced show that rewards subpar singers with a recording contract is the most watched program for three years running....or that Joey Fatone and Howie Mandel have paying jobs. No, I'm not going into it. In any event, here's to you Veronica, you made us laugh, cry, and crap in our pants time and time again. May your new stint on Heroes be as fraktastic as your previous gig.

Arrested Development: Your awesomeness will live inside of us.

On a final hasn't escaped me that I watch too much tv...or that I use a lot of ellipses.

Hey Monique! I love the new Blog. I can always count on you to entertain me. Keep the posts coming. If anything, at least you can say you have one reader ... Oh, and I believe it is called a parenthetical within a parenthetical. Paige?...

Your Tivo must be working extra time, because I know that you failed to talk about Top Chef, Lost, Weeds, and other greats. Have you ever thought about butterflies in the sky and taking a look at the reading rainbow? Who am I kidding the feeling of allowing your brain to become mush is awesome! Yeah TV!
