The Goths Missed the U-Turn

Amazing Race Review:
Oooops! Strategy plays an important part in any game, so if you are going to U-Turn someone, ummmm.... make sure they're behind you, maybe, I'm just sayin. The Goths, knew full well that one of the most annoying teams to ever participate in The Amazing Race, Jen and Nate, were in fact behind them. The Goths chose to instead U-Turn the grandfather/grandson team, who were ahead of them. Grandpa and Junior came in second actually behind the Hippies. This proved to be a fatal mistake as the Goths are now eliminated.

There are only 4 teams left, this season seemed to go really fast. We have the Hippies, Rachel and TK, who are so laid back I expect them to oversleep one of these episodes and lose the race. And then there are their opposites, Jen and Nate, they are both wound up tighter than a drum and are ready to explode the minute something goes wrong. So fun to watch them! Also left in the race are the grandfather/grandson recently tattooed team, Nick and Don. I really didn't expect them to get this far. They are slow and at times seem really confused. The grandfather reminds me of Rudy from Survivor 1. Let's not for get Mr. Miyagi and his daughter, Ron and Chris. They are still in it! Ron, the dad, after a reprieve of being a totally prick to his daughter, this week went back to his old ways. I can only imagine after watching himself on TV and the way that he's treated his daughter that Chris must have got some really good Christmas gifts this year.

My pick for the winner. It's a tough one but I'll say Rachel and TK, if they can stay awake.

I Can Win Money on Lingo

I watched Lingo again. The red team was kicking ass. They were stringing 5 letter words together like nobodies business. Bye bye yellow team, pick up your departing gifts on your way out cause you got smoked.
Lingo is on at 11:00 pm, so I assumed that I was watching reruns, especially when the kick ass red team got to play Bonus Lingo because they won and when the show ended they had a grand total of $400.00. Yes, the decimal point is in the right place and yes, they have to split their winnings. Hardly worth the bus trip. Winning four hundred dollars on a game show is so 1980's, isn't it?
Let's go to Wikipedia, shall we? Lingo started in the USA in 2002 and Wikipedia tells us, "to present." Hell, I can win money on Lingo, I can spell. But it would cost me more than $400.00 to get to Los Angeles. If Lingo goes on tour, I'm there!

The Amazing Race Twists and Turns

Amazing Race Review:
Hey there was a non-repeat show on Sunday! Awesome! My two favorite teams, the Goths and the Hippies had the worst day. Everything went wrong for them. Broken down cars, flat tires, getting lost, loosing clues, I'm surprised they finished this leg of the race. Jennifer and Nate hardly swore at each other, it was kind of disappointing. They can go from "I love you" to "I hate you bitch" in 0.3 seconds, it's really very amusing. Maybe next week.
This past week was a non-elimination week so the Goths that came in last are safe. But a new twist this season, the dreaded "Speed Bump". A task that will spring up at any time during the next leg of the race that only they will have to do.
Let's not forget that a team took the Fast Forward Sunday. The Grandfather/Grandson team. Only once they got to the Fast Forward destination they found out they had to get a tattoo. hehe! There were permanently tattooed with the letters FF (Fast Forward) on the shoulders. That came in first though!

Boring Television and I'm Not Stupid

I know that during the blessed holiday season television consists of repeats and Christmas specials, I know that. But still I grab the remote and try to find something to watch. NBC and ABC have attempted a radical move. Yes, radical baby. They've had the same show on every night. Battle of some choirs on NBC and Duel with one of the Mikes on ABC. If you like one of the new shows you're set for the week. If you're like me and don't like a new television show being crammed down your throat you flip around with the remote until you find Lingo and end up watching that.
I suppose this post would have a different tone if either of these shows could hold my interest. I'm growing tired of spin-offs of reality TV and the choirs battling is just an Idol wannabe. And Duel, I didn't catch it from the beginning, so I'm clueless as to what's going on and don't care to take the time to figure it out. Lazy, yes, my television is a box that entertains me. It's turned on at night when I am unwinding. I'm not stupid because I don't want to understand a game show, just tired and want to laugh. And I'm so missing LOST!

Movie Recommendations Are Being Taken

I'm about to tell all about my families wild New Years Eve tradition. Hold on to your socks! We rent 2 to 3 movies and watch them all in one night. WooHoo! We also make pizza rolls and buy a couple pounds of shrimp and pig-out. It's so much fun we can't even stand it.
It's just this simple, we would rather not be on the roads New Years Eve. The husband and I are not party-ers, we stay home and worry about the boys. Boy #3 will probably be at home with us though. Which leads me to the purpose of this post. We have the husband, Boy #3 and me. Boy #3 and I are on the same wave length when it comes to movies - adventure, sci-fi, fantasy. The husband on the other hand, oh how do I explain this guy? War, movies based on real life experiences, uh he watches a movie and says, "That can't really happen."
I think you have all the information you will need to make a recommendation for us, don't you? I will look forward to your responses!

Can I Add Goldstar Galaxy to my Christmas List?

Once in a while I like to share a video on my blogs. Actually it’s also for selfish reasons. If I find something I like, I put it on my blog and then it’s easy to find when I want to watch it. I like this video by Sam Rader. It’s a song called Grey. Apparently someone posted it on YouTube but got it somewhere else on the web and didn’t know where it came from originally. It’s a mystery! The song Grey is from Sam Raders debut album called Goldstar Galaxy. I wonder if it’s too late to make an addition to my Christmas list.



House Repeats

One of the few television shows that the husband and I agree on is House. I like to be able to sit in front of a fire, next to the husband, laughing at what House is going to say next. We didn't start watching House the first season, maybe two, I'm not sure. Anyway on Monday nights CBS is showing repeats of one of the seasons we haven't seen. So it's all new for us. If anyone has been watching and knows what season it is please leave me a comment and let me know. Because if it isn't season one I would like to get it for the husband for Christmas. He doesn't read my blogs, can you believe that, so don't worry about spoiling any surprises!

Trusted Tours Take Me To My Happy Place

I had root canal today, yeah it really sucked. I tried to imagine myself in Las Vegas, that wasn’t working very well for me. So I don’t think there will be any reviewing today because the Novocain is starting to wear off and I have a bottle of pain pills. But now I want to go to Las Vegas again, it’s been a few years. The last time the husband and I were there we wandered into a very expensive restaurant on The Strip, in jeans, we tried to back out but the Madre de wouldn’t hear of it. We had a wonderful seafood dinner and innocently asked our waiter how to get downtown from the restaurant. He said, “Excuse me for a minute please.” He came back and said the restaurants limo was waiting for us outside! Awesome!
I’m going to sign up for Trusted Travel eNewsletter and keep my eyes open for discount coupons for Las Vegas tours. Signing up for that eNewsletter also automatically enters me into a drawing to win an iPod Nano. We can go to other casino’s around our state of Ohio, but once you been to Las Vegas your spoiled. So Trusted Tours and Attractions will keep me posted on the latest deals but first I have to deal with this root canal, I’m really starting to feel it now. I’ll go lay down and think of my happy place……… I can hear the slot machines………..

Todd the Schemer Wins Survivor China

And the winner of a million dollars is...... Todd! The schemer! And he did scheme his way to a million. I didn't think he'd get anyone on the jury to vote for him but he told them all what they wanted to hear. He totally played Jean-Robert - again! It was great.
So Todd, Amanda and Courtney turned on Denise the lunch lady just like we and she knew they would. Denise tried to plead her case by saying she's just a lunch lady and she will have to go back to her $7.00 an hour job, but the final solid three didn't care. And either did the school she lunch ladied for, they demoted her when she got back. She is now a night shift janitor. Denise was told she was a distraction in the lunch line. Yikes! I don't know maybe they're right. When a bunch of third graders see Denise getting ready for a swim in her dark pink bloomers and unsupporting bra, I can see it as a slight distraction. She ended up with a charity check of $50,000 from Mark Burnett. James won $100,000 for the popular vote.
My least favorite part of Survivor is when the final survivors reflex on the voted out survivors. This season was no exception, the final four could barely think of anything nice to say about the voted out bunch and mumbled through it. What a waste of time, show me more back stabbing.
We have a new season in February to look forward to, one team will consist of former survivors and the other team huge survivor fans. I hope they get the keep their clothes this time.

There's Something About Johnny Depp

The vast array of characters that Johnny Depp has chosen to portray in his acting career has left me kind of in a confused state. I left the theater after seeing Secret Window, thinking, “Wow, he totally pulled that off.” I hated him so much in the last scene, when he was eating that corn on the cob. But I told all my friends to go see it. Let’s face it, you just have to say Johnny Depp and they go running. We ran to see him as the unco-operative hero Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, “Will you be saving her then?” What a great line of his right before he jumps to save Elizabeth.So now Johnny Depp seems to have sunk his teeth into another strange, intriguing character Sweeney Todd. You can visit the official Sweeney Todd movie site here. I have to go see this movie, Johnny Depp never disappoints. And together Tim Burton again, priceless! There are a lot of Depp/Burton fans all over the web looking forward to this movie you can visit Sweeney Todd on MySpace and several other message boards. It opens December 21st. I will have my Christmas shopping done by then, I will, I will. Then I can have relaxing evening at the movies. If Johnny Depp will let me, but I’m thinking I’ll be on the edge of my seat.

The Vampire Show

Moonlight Review:
It's a vampire show. I've been wanting to see Moonlight since the fall previews but didn't want to get into another show. The husband went to bed early last night so I watched it.
Apparently vampires in the 21st century have evolved enough to withstand a wooden stake to the heart now. Huh! I had no idea what was going on in this episode, the entire show for that matter. I did not see one vampire chomp on any one's neck, close but no old school vampire antics. I'll have to watch it from the beginning to figure out what the hell a vampire is doing working with the local police and a TV reporter.
I was really surprised by the wooden stake thing though. But I guess when vampire rules aren't clearly defined the writer's can claim creative liberties.

Survivor's Final Four

Survivor China Review:
We are down to four! Amanda, Denise, Todd and Courtney and the final episode is on Sunday. Three hours of Survivor. The final episode is the one I dislike the most. It's the sappy episode. The nauseating episode. The episode where the final three reminisce down a winding path of voted out fellow Survivors. Gag me with a spoon.
I was pulling for Peih Gee last night, only because I wanted to see the alliance scramble and start eating there own. Now that is worth the price of admission when they have to turn on each other.
Oh and you know what else I hate about the final episode? The stupid questions the jury members ask and the dumb comments they make. And then the final two sit there and take their abuse, I would totally vote for the one that actually stood up for themselves.

Reach in and Grab a Couple Balls

We watched repeats last night. What a drag. Then the husband went to bed and I watched Lingo. I don't know why I keep watching that game show. Maybe so I can yell at the contestants who can't seem to string 5 letters together to make a word. Or maybe it's because I giggle every time the host, Chuck Whoolery says, "Reach in and grab a couple balls." Tell me that doesn't make you laugh. And guess what? It's bad to grab a red ball. You loose a turn. Haha! I better get myself a good book or start watching my LOST CD's before I get myself into trouble. Oh the blue balls are better, they have numbers on them!

The Amazing Race Takes a Back Seat to Survivor

The Amazing Race Review:
So Jennifer and Nate were at it again. Last week he called her a bitch and this week she said, "I hate you, I hate you, I hate you." And Jennifer freaked out because the cab driver wouldn't let them in his cab because they were wet and the grandson and grandfather got ahead of them. What a hoot, I couldn't stop laughing! Every week I think the grandson and his grandfather are going to come in last and they manage to squeak in before some other team. They meander around getting lost and the grandfather takes his time, driving the grandson crazy. The grandfather reminds me of Rudy from the very first Survivor. But they are getting the job done. The team that didn't get the job done was Azaria and Hendekea, the brother and sister. And yeah, I had to look up the spelling of their names and I don't know which ones which. But they're eliminated.
The Amazing Race won't be on next week, because the Survivor China Finale is on. The three hour long drawn out, let's honor the people we've back stabbed to get here episode and reunion show. Three hours of Survivor and then that show is done too.
I'm going to have to start reviewing more commercials.

How Creepy is King?

Is anyone else as creeped out as I am by the Burger King commercials? Wasn't it bad enough that "King" was sitting in bed with a guy when he woke up with breakfast ready? Now we are watching three moms trying to have "King" whacked? And all because Burger King supposedly makes a great sandwich. Do the three moms see him as competition or as some freaky guy in a plastic mask wearing tights, threatening the well being of their children? If he's a freaky guy, wearing tights, chasing kids with a sandwich, then yeah, let's have him whacked. But if he just wants to give our kids a sandwich........ummmm, I don't want that guy anywhere near my kids, somebody cut his brake line. While trying to get the gist of this commercial, I think I've managed to work it out for myself. Nevermind.

Eric the Virgin Didn't Survive

Survivor China Review:
Well this episode was packed with predictability. Yawn. It was the tear-jerker episode, you know when the Survivor's family members are paraded in front of them, coaxing them to win the reward challenge so they can spend time with their loved one. It always brings tears to my eyes and then I get mad at myself for being such a wuss.
Peih Gee won immunity again. I can't believe she's still in the game. Eric of course is not. There goes another one I wanted to win. Out of the five that are left, I really don't care who wins now.
Oh and I don't know if Todd pulled a Johnny Fairplay move or not. Remember when Johnny Fairplay from Survivor Pearl Islands, had devised an evil plan during the family parade and pretended his grandmother died? Well Todd asked his sister about his other pregnant sister and apparently she lost her baby. But no one knows if it's true or not. And immediately when the drama unfolded every Survivor fan and all the remaining Survivors thought of Johnny Fairplay. They didn't show Todd talking to the camera about his sister, so I'm guessing it's true. But I've already spent more time discussing it than I hoped. It was a boring episode though.

Electric Sex Gleaming in the Window

The dog and I ventured out this evening for a walk. It's about 25 degrees out there. I wanted to see some Christmas lights. I know the Dog Whisperer would frown upon my dog walking habits, but you can't look straight ahead when there are bright, shiny lights everywhere. We made our way to the street that goes above and beyond house lighting decor. This street usually never disappoints. Maybe I was a little too early tonight because I was disappointed until that is, I looked up at a house with just the living room light on. No Christmas lights, no wreath on the door, not even a inflatable snowman in the yard. But what I saw glowing brightly in the window was worth the walk in the cold, dark night and being dragged by the dog, for there in the window was a Leg Lamp. Just like the one in the movie A Christmas Story.

One of my favorite quotes from the movie:

"Only one thing in the world could've dragged me away from the soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window."
I stood in front of the house for a couple minutes admiring the lamp and the sense of humor the people that live there have. Merry Christmas to them and thanks for making my walk memorable!

It Has Begun

The repeats. What a drag, I'm really jonesin' for some Dancing With the Stars. I miss all the hoopla. I have The Amazing Race and Survivor China that are left with new episodes and then we wait until January for anything new. February for LOST, dear God I miss Sawyer!

Happy Hero Thoughts Until January

Heroes Review:
How many times have we seen someone die on this show and then brought back to life? So Niki and Nathan fans hang on to that until January. Or you can search the forums for spoilers like I am later today. If anyone has a spoiler, feel free to leave me a comment and a source. But my gut tells me those two are done. I can think of a few other characters I would rather have gone instead, like most of the new ones except Adam, but that's me, oh and Hiro annoys me, there I said it.
Speaking of Adam, Hiro put him in a coffin! Yeah, in a graveyard, buried and alive. That time-travel super hero power is really starting to work for Hiro.
HRG makes a deal with, uh, the Company? The secret organization that has it's members being killed by Adam, has deadly viruses that can kill the entire populace of the world stored in Texas, keeps heroes with super powers locked up to do experiments on them or just kill them, you know that company. So HRG makes a deal with the Company, for them to leave his family alone and he will remain with the Company. HRG goes home to freak out his family, because he's one of the back from the dead people. Claire loves him again, teenagers.
Mohinder gets back to his secret underground apartment were Sylar and gullible Maya are waiting for him. Maya is making breakfast! She finally catches on that Sylar is an evil-doer, wait she doesn't catch on. Mohinder has to spell it out for her, she was un-able to catch on even by Mohinders obvious fear of Sylar. She starts with her black killing tears and this is what eventually wakes the slumbering Molly. Sylar shoots Maya, thank you, but she becomes another one of the back from the dead people. Mohinder has two shots of the indestructible cheerleader, virus killing serum. He was taking it to Niki before Sylar called him, but Niki blew up in a building, she won't be needing it. While Mohinder is giving the shot to Maya, satisfying Sylar, that it isn't poison, the electric chick, Elle shows up. She's trying to catch Sylar for daddy, but she screws it up and he gets away with the shot. Sylar will be cutting out brains again in no time.
Nathan, Peter and Matt decide it's time to go public. Nathan's idea, he wants to tell everyone that he can fly. Matt is there on one side of Nathan using his hero super power mind convincing thingy. And Peter, is on the other side of Nathan. It's a good thing too because someone had to catch him when he fell from the 3 gunshots to his chest.

They Are Suppose to Win, Right?

Amazing Race Review:
The Hippies came in first this week and the Goth singles were right behind them. These two teams so far have shown the most composure in the race. They don't yell at each other, they support each other. Now those other teams are coming apart at the seams. It's getting fun to watch. Especially Jennifer and Nathan. Please, if their family and friends are paying attention, don't let those two get married! They'll kill each other.
Who came in last? Those Blonds. The object of The Amazing Race is to win, at least it was last time I checked. But the Blonds used a U-Turn option last week, which lead to the demise of Lorena and Jason. Which lead to bad karma vibes shooting towards the Blonds from the other teams. So I guess the object of The Amazing Race is to win but do it in a nice way.
I hadn’t really picked a favorite team this season. But the fun-loving hippies and the dark soul mate goth couple look like they can win only because they are not slowing themselves down with arguing. That’s how the blonds lost this week and Jennifer and Nathan will fall because they just hate each other.

There's Football on the TV

There's football on TV. The husband said he wanted to have a fire in the fireplace tonight and just sit and watch television.
I said, "Good, find us a movie to watch."
"Oh. I kinda wanted to watch this football game."
"Oh. I kinda didn't."
And I'm ready to put a muzzle on the dog today. She's been barking at us and whining all day. Her boyfriend next door was out most of the day and she could hear him. We don't rake our leaves with as much enthusiasm as the neighbor guy. It was about 30 degrees out today and we elected to stay in and hope our leaves blow into his yard. So the lovebirds were separated.

Is Maya That Stupid?

Heroes Review:
I had a rough week. My husband and I were both sick and I didn't watch Heroes until Tuesday afternoon. Then I forgot to blog about it. Let's see if I remember anything that happened.
Oh the Mexican twins and Sylar where in this episode. Sylar killed the brother, not by cutting out his brain, just by stabbing him. I don't think he can cut out brains anymore. Or that's what he needs Mohinder for. So Sylar tells the Mexican twin girl, Maya to get control of her abilities so she doesn't need her brother anymore, cuz she's draggin him down. He'd be much better off alone in a foreign country not being able to speak English or better off alone in Mexico where he is wanted for murder. Maya gains control of her abilities and tells her brother to hit the road. That whole scenario is so believable isn't it? Or the writer's, that are on strike now, think we are incredibly stupid. This story line is really annoying me. Now Sylar and Maya are calling Mohinder from Mohinder's very own secret apartment. Sylar tells him he needs to get home now, he's relieved the babysitter and Molly is fine for now. Mohinder and Matt are doing such a great job taking care of Molly aren't they?

James! What the Hell?

Survivor China Review:
James, James, James ..... Dude, do the math. You have 2 immunity idols, 7 people left, what are you holding on to them for? A souvenir? Two souvenirs? I thought he was playing smart but he made a stupid move last night. He knew something was up.
So James is done, I thought he would win. Now I don't know who'll win. I want it to be Eric the Virgin, but he's the under dog.
I'm all screwed up with my reviews this week, I realized last night that I forgot my Heroes review, so I'll do that next.

Lost Some Brain Cells Last Night

If I get hooked on anymore television shows the husband will leave me. Therefore, I watch nothing in particular on Wednesday nights until LOST returns in January or February or the year 2010, who knows. I found myself in control of the remote last night. The husband is sick and went to bed early. I would have liked to watch Pushing Daisies from the beginning. I've flipped around enough to catch it here and there and I'm intrigued. If the writer's strike continues maybe I can catch it the second time around, I'll put it on my secondary list along with that vampire show, Whisper, I think?
So while flipping through the channels last night I stumbled upon a show called My Fair Brady. Today I am trying to regenerate the brain cells I lost while watching that stupid show. Is this kind of television that we are in for if the writer's stay on strike? Peter Brady use to be my favorite Brady, not anymore. I look at him and say, "Ewwww."

Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Visit the official Sweeney Todd movie site and tell me this doesn’t look creepier than creepy to you. Johnny Depp certainly picks interesting rolls. And Tim Burton is right up his alley. The movie is called Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. It sounds scary and creepy already doesn’t it?
I was directed to a site called Sweeney Todd’s Confessional where people can vent and spill their guts on revenge they have taken out on people – yikes! You can tape your own confession. I’m afraid to watch them, go watch them for me and report back to me!
And of course you can visit Sweeney Todd on MySpace. Who doesn’t have a MySpace? There is a lot of buzz about this movie going on, it certainly looks intriguing. When you combine Johnny Depp and Tim Burton you have to expect a hit movie don’t you think? It’s about a guy who has everything taken away from him, thrown in jail and seeks revenge. He really looks pissed! Did I mention creepy?It’s coming out at Christmas. Just at the right time when college student are home from school and high school students are on the holiday break. I have decided if I want to go see it yet, maybe I’ll send my teenagers first!


Cut-Throat Bitch is Gone

She actually cried at the end of this episode. She gets us to hate her for the first half of the season and then shows us some emotion other than conniving bitch after she gets fired. I'm not falling for that. Good-bye, Amber, that's her real name. House wanted to keep all four of the applicants, no wait three of them, but picked two and Cuddy said he need to have a woman so she let him pick three. Okay I was under the influence of Nyquil, let's try again.
House is keeping Kumar, 13, and the plastic surgeon and fired Cut-Throat Bitch. Well he fired 13 but then Cuddy said he could hire her back. I'm sure I got that cleared up for you. Nyquil is a wonderful drug. I'm taking it again tonight, because it allowed me to breath out of both nasal passages all night.

Thanks for Entertaining Me

Dancing With the Stars Final Review:
In the first 10 minutes we saw Marie Osmond get the axe. When you lumber around on the dance floor in a big giant doll costume and say, "I did this for my fans." What the hell do you expect? Has everyone had a big enough dose of the Osmonds? I'm good for a while, a long while. She was like having a relative visit and stayed just a few days too long. Sure it was nice to see her, but enoughs, enough already.
I recorded the two hour extravaganza, because the husband and I watched House, then started watching it at 10:00. I fast forwarded through so much fluff that I almost caught up with the end of the show - live! I did get to see Albert Reed swing his hips around again, no fast forwarding there. I don't know what draws me to this show, it certainly isn't the re-capping. Holy Crap the drama!
After I was sure Marie Osmond didn't win the big mirror-ball trophy, it didn't matter to me who won. Helio and Mel B both were deserving of the prize. I voted for Mel B, but that was because I wanted to continue to see Maks dance, cuz he's a babe. So congratulations Helio and see ya next year Maks! And thank you Dancing With the Stars for entertaining the hell out of me.

That's it? What the hell?

Dancing With the Stars Review:
What the hell was Marie Osmond doing? Why didn't someone stop her? Isn't Jonathan, her dance partner, a professional dancer? What the hell was that? What was she thinking? Len was disgusted and so was I. Okay, done with my rant. I'll laugh my ass off if Marie Osmond wins. I hope she does.
Was it just me or did this season's final lack something? I just remember the dancing in the finals being better. Did Marie Osmond ruin the finals for me?
Okay let's go on to the next thing I noticed. I love to watch who is in the audience of Dancing With the Stars. Last night all the Spice Girls were there. Did anyone else notice how very little Victoria Beckham was smiling and applauding? Something tells me she likes being the center of attention, it's just a vibe I'm picking up. She didn't look all that impressed.
So tonight is it. Dancing With the Stars will be over, what a drag. This show entertains the hell out of me.

Amazingly Boring Race

The Amazing Race Review:
The problem with recording a TV show on a Sunday evening are the football games that precede it. One must take into consideration overtime. I learned this the hard way over the past few years. I make sure Cold Case is recording because it comes on right after The Amazing Race. Thank goodness I did because CBS was behind for like 54 minutes.
Lorena and Jason fell victim to the not so hot blonds, they think they are hot but the husband says they're not and he's a guy so he knows these things. Such a cute couple Lorena and Jason are. But it all started last week when Lorena couldn't get enough milk from the camel and she had a break down. Leaving them to start the race this week in last place.
Those blond bitches "U-Turned them"! I know! The U-Turn is a new one for me, it use to be a yield, I think. But anyway, Lorena and Jason had to go back and do the other task, making them do both of the tasks instead of one.
All and all this episode was kind of a bore. For about 15 combined minutes we had to listen to Lorena and Jason tell us how they weren't giving up and they were in this to win, anything could happen, yada, yada, yada. Enough already.

It Was a Re-Cap Show

Survivor China Review:
It was a re-cap show. I hate those. Some unseen footage, but nothing earth-shattering. They ate some worms.
Why the hell can't I add an image to this blog today?
There we go! An image! Let me go put Frank's image in my last post!

Frank Caliendo is Really Hysterical, but.....

Frank TV Review:
Let me just start off by saying that my entire family really likes Frank Caliendo and we really wanted his new show on TBS to be successful. It pains me to say that his show really sucked. Big time. He needs to stick to stand-up. There I said it. I will watch the next few shows in hopes that it grows on me, because I want it to. But if he does the Seinfeld Show again I'm changing the channel, really.

My Conscious is Clear

Ladies and gentlemen, live from Hollywood, this is Dancing With the Stars Review:
Everyone knew that it was probably Jennie going last night and so did she. The producers of Dancing With the Stars know how to drama it up though. The two dancing couples left under the red lights, in no particular order damn it, just happened to be Julianne Hough and Helio next to Derek Hough and Jennie. Wow brother against sister, cruel.
We got to see Sabrina and Mark dance again! They danced to Avril Lavigne singing Complicated. I fast forwarded through her first song, but wanted to see Sabrina and Mark and so did everybody else. Every time Sabrina and Mark took the dance floor the audience cheered over Avril Lavigne's singing. While watching Sabrina dance I kept saying to myself, "Marie can't do that." My conscious is clear I didn't vote for her.
Hey, Mrs. Brady was in the audience again! I wonder which of the Brady kids she's going to talk into being on the show next year?

You'll Shoot Your Eye Out

Heroes Review:
Hiro wants to go back in time to save his father. His father tells him it's destiny, but he does stop time long enough to see it is Adam (the English guy that speaks Japanese from Ancient Japan) who kills poor Sulu from Star Trek. And we find out that Adam has regenerated his cells so much that he can't grow old so he's like a thousand years old or something.
Matt tones his super hero powers to where he can persuade people to do what he wants them to by putting a thought in their minds. Cool.
Claire the cheerleader hates her dad again. She gets kidnapped by bad guy Bob and decides she loves her dad again. HRG kidnaps bad guy Bob's lovely, horny daughter Elle. He sticks her feet in a bucket of water. Water and her electric shooting hands don't mix. Bad guy Bob drains a pint of Claire's blood before they switch hostages. Mohinder is helping bad guy Bob. So much so that he shoots HRG in the eyeball, oow, just like Issac's painting said he would. Claire gets away with her flying boyfriend.
And this is how the episode ends. We see HRG laying on a hospital bed with his eye shot out and then we see an IV dripping blood into him. You see where I'm gong with this? Yeah, his eyeball starts to heal. He sits up and says, "Whoa." I wonder if he's going to still need those glasses.

Dancing With the Stars night of 10's

Dancing With the Stars Review:
The 10's were flowing freely last night! Whoa! Even Marie and Jennie got 10's. It will be very interesting to see who goes tonight. Seriously, I can't say who I think would go home because it could be anyone of the four. I really think Helio and Mel B should be the final two.

Last week when I reviewed Dancing With the Stars, I threw out the question, "Who is that guy they keep showing when Jennie dances?" I found out. Ken Howard aka The White Shadow, it was a TV show in the early 80's. There seems to be no connection with Jennie except they were in a few episode of Melrose Place together. I had no idea his name and asked my husband about the TV series about a basketball team in the early 80's. He immediately said White Shadow, Ken Howard. He knows this because it's about sports. I did double check and googled him. I won't tell my husband this because I don't want that well of information to dry up.

When Marie ended her first dance, I think it was her first dance, tell me I'm wrong I'll believe you. Anyway, she ended it by dropping into a bunch of her bothers laps. One of them was Donny, but I don't know who the rest were. I was a little icked out. She has the audience in the palm of her hand. I'm pretty sure she isn't going anywhere. Talk about a career boost!

Waiting in the wings to boost his career, Bruce Jenner. He so wants on the next season. He was in the audience again. Hey, if you would go on Skating With The Stars, Dancing With The Stars is a huge step up. Mark my words we will see him next season.

Amazing Race and Unpredictable Animals

Amazing Race Review:
Mr. Miyagi was subdued last night because he had a hernia. They tell us he had to see a doctor and the doctor explained to us he pushed the hernia back in. I'm not a medical expert but, ewww. So Mr. Miyagi's comments were kept to a series of grunts and groans and he and his poor daughter managed to stay in the race.
It seems this season there are more animal road blocks, they're so unpredictable and make all the girls cry. I can see why they're are in the show, so much drama trying to get milk from a camel. It was pretty funny watching Lorena, of one of the boyfriend/girlfriend teams, wig out. But they managed to stay in the race also.
Last nights losers were the sister team, Marianna and Julia. They were pretty much flying under the radar then all of a sudden it's like, oh look who came in last, whatshername and her sister.

Michael Needs a Hug

The Office Review:
What the hell? I felt so terrible for Michael. Jan is suing Dunder-Mifflin for wrongful termination. And she dragged Michael through the mud. The deposition started out funny, but ended sad. I thought Michael would start crying, I wanted to cry for him or at least give him a hug. I hate Jan.
Back at The Office, we had a big ping-pong match going on. Jim vs. Darryl which turns into Pam vs. Kelly. Kelly's annoying. We also find out that Dwight knows every ping-pong champion there is and are not at all surprised by that fact, because he's Dwight.
I didn't watch or record My Name is Earl. I figure with the writer's strike and all, I'm going to be needing something new to watch when all the repeats are airing.

Survivor's First Snowman Voted Out

Survivor China Review:
Frosti got the boot last night. I didn't see that one coming. I thought it would be Eric for sure but he has charmed his way into the ladies hearts. Mine too! I like how a lot of the challenges haven't been about brute strength. The skinny girls are winning. Peih Gee won immunity, which was bad for Frosti because Peih Gee pissed off James the Gravedigger. She was a on the chopping block. Todd thinks he's running the game but James the Gravedigger has him so outwitted. They have to use sub-titles when James the Gravedigger talks, can't understand him. I try turning up the volume, squinting to read his lips, I don't know what he's saying.

The Punisher

I finally watched The Punisher. I recorded it weeks ago. I love action movies with a hunk as the star actor. Thomas Jane has his shirt off a lot, so I'll probably watch it again. Yes, I liked the movie.
Special agent Frank Castle had it all: A loving family, a great life, and an adventurous job. But when his life is taken away from him by a ruthless criminal and his associates, Frank has become reborn. more....
I saw The Punisher on regular TV, so the swearing was cut out and I'm sure there was more blood. It's rated R so there might be boobies in it too. Just in case you rent the DVD! I was entertained and that's what matters.

Too Many Characters in House

House Review:
There was a lot going on in this episode. Where to start...........

The patient of the week is a teenage boy who has a huge cyst on his face and his stay in the hospital and re-constructive surgery is being filmed for TV. House stares at the camera, a lot and finds places to hide with his team while trying to diagnose why this kid had heart failure in the operating room right before the reconstructive surgery started.

Cut Throat Bitch, I'm sorry that's what House calls her, is really pissed that the CIA doctor is there. We spoke of her last week, Michael Michelle from ER when I use to watch it. The CIA doctor has nothing to add to the diagnosing, in fact she sucks at it and House is blinded by her beauty. Foreman questions her and basically calls her stupid. House realizes he hired her because she's pretty and fires her. Cut Throat Bitch is ecstatic! Oh and she put some lipstick on for the TV show. Thirteen, that's what House calls the other woman doctor applicant, is the one that properly diagnoses the teenager and he eventually has the reconstructive surgery.

Good episode, I just wish there weren't so many characters. But I'm starting to like Kumar from Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and Thirteen. I really want Cut Throat Bitch to be fired, I don't like her.

Marie Osmonds Fans Take Her to the Semi-Finals

Dancing With the Stars Elimination Show Review:
Wow, it's going to be interesting to see how far Marie Osmonds fans are going to take her. I thought Jennie would go last night but it was Cameron. Jennie will probably go next week. Why do they keep showing that guy in the audience when Jennie is dancing? He looks familiar and I know he's a television star but I don't know his name, is he her father? I will investigate!

I watched this episode this morning because my husband refuses to watch it and it's on the same time as House. House is one of the very few shows we both like. So I record Dancing With the Stars and at the end of House flip over to see who's done. Then when I watch the episode from the beginning I know who's going and I watch them closely. I really think that they know they are going, but that's just me.

Now We Are Getting Somewhere With Heroes

Heroes Review:
Okay now we're getting somewhere. I don't know why this episode wasn't the season premier. Nathan and Peter flew into the sky to save New York from being blown up, right? Peter can regenerate and Nathan can't, this they realized high in the sky. Gaa! So Peter flies away from a burned up Nathan, blows up, regenerates, catches a now falling Nathan, lands, takes Nathan to a hospital and runs away. Then Bob and the psycho, electrified blond, Elle find him and she zaps him. Peter wakes up in Bob's office, with Elle hanging all over him. Ewww. They want to cure Peter and he's all for it. Peter gets a nice room next to Adam, the guy from ancient Japan. Are you still with me?
Now if you've had a guy locked up for 30 years and put the new guy right next to him with paper thin walls, well you're just asking for trouble. Of course they escape. And then they save Nathan with Adams blood. Nathan is back to his hot self.
Adam and Peter get the hell out of there and run into the Haitian and Electric Elle. Elle goes after Adam and the Haitian after Peter. This is why we find Peter at the beginning of the season handcuffed in a big crate with no memory, cuz the Haitian did it.

The Judges want Helio and Mel B

Dancing With The Stars Review:
Clearly the judges are telling us who they want in the final two. Helio and Julianne and Max and Mel B, because the rest of the stars got scores of 8. And at this point in the competition an eight means you suck. It's time for Marie Osmond to go, then Jennie, then Cameron.
Mel B did grab Tom Bergeron's butt after the Judges were done with her. And then again after the second dance and Max copped a feel too. Laughed out Loud while watching it with the dog and I woke her up.
We have been told that Gloria Esteban will be on the drawn out elimination show tonight. Wasn't she suppose to be on a few weeks ago? I must have missed the explanation when I was fast forwarding.
I'm guessing Helio and Julianne will be the encore performance and Jennie will go home, because Marie Osmond has the fans big time.

Forgot About Earl

Yes, I recorded My Name is Earl and finally watched it. I can't remember why I started watching this show, but I am growing concerned that I'm loosing precious brain cells while watching these episodes. You must watch My Name is Earl with a group of people and preferably under the influence of alcohol. It's trailer trash at it's finest and goes beyond stupid.
You have been warned!

Where are the Hunks?

The Amazing Race Review:
Grabbed another nickname! There is a Asian team, a dad and his daughter, and one of the other teams called the dad Mr. Miyagi. I don't have a favorite team yet but Mr. Miyagi is on the bottom of the list. He nitpicked and belittled his daughter the whole episode. And when he ran out of things to nag his daughter about he sought out more young folks that needed his utmost wisdom. The guy never shut up.
On one of my message boards, it was pointed out that there is no alpha male team. You know, the hunks of the race? What a drag, I noticed it too and I'm wondering why. The lesbian reverends came in last this week and were eliminated. They didn't seem to be in that much of a hurry, so it was inevitable.

Dancecenter on Dancing with the Stars Season 5

I finally found Dance Center, from Dancing With the Stars. Kenny Mayne, Jerry Rice and Len Goodman are a hoot! It's only the first part and then there is a dance after it.

Greenweek is a Bust on The Office

The Office Review:
For NBC's greenweek we find Michael trying to be Survivorman. It was great because he got back to the office, Dwight saved him from eating lethal mushrooms, and he decided he liked air conditioning and lights. But he did make a hat out of his pant leg.
Jim and Pam continue to be cute together and Creed is awesome. Jim was put in charge of the office while Michael went into the Pennsylvania wilderness. Jim made and executive decision to have everyone's birthday party on one day to get them over with. Everyone wanted their own cake. Creed was adamant on a peach cobbler. "Make it happen Jim!" I love Creed.
I have My Name is Earl recorded but haven't watched it yet, stay tuned.

Pick a Side Denise

Survivor China Review:
Uhhhh.... Did Jean-Robert really think he was a power player this season? He was totally out-witted. I've never seen him play poker, I hope he's better at reading people around the poker table than he is around the camp fire.
The lunch lady Denise better wake up, she was dissed big time. No one picked her in the reward challenge so she had to sit it out and no one told her they were all voting for Jean-Robert at tribal council. Pick a side Denise!
If you could hand pick an immunity challenge that Courtney would be sure to win, you would have picked the challenge they had last night. All she had to do is sit and not move. Hey, she's really good at that.
Next week I think we should see a big shake up and I'd really like to see Todd go home, he's annoying as hell.

Waiting For LOST

I don't have anything that I'm watching on Wednesday nights. Not until LOST comes back in February that is. So my husband has full control of the TV on Wednesday nights. What does he watch? Last night he watched a rerun of Sanford and Son, the History Channel and ESPN. I never liked Sanford and Son, probably because it was on the same time as the Brady Bunch.
I hope this writer's strike does mess up my viewing enjoyment of LOST.

House Cures the Secret Agent Man

House Review:
House is such a world renowned doctor that the CIA comes to get him in a helicopter to cure a secret agent man. No one believes him and Cutty thinks he's trying to get out of clinic duty. Of course he cures him because he's House. He's also flirts with a CIA doctor shamelessly. She use to be on ER back when I use to watch it, Michael Michell. House offers her a job or a shot at the job that he's been stringing along all the other applicants for. Cut-Throat Bitch is going to be pissed. We finally got rid of one of the applicants though. Brennan? He has nice eyes. Turns out he was fixing results of the tests that were being run on a patient Foreman was is charge of. Said she had Polio. He has some secret agenda for poor people. Go figure.

Dancing With the Stars Elimination No Surprise

Dancing With the Stars Elimination Show Review:
I searched all over for a picture of Kenny Mayne, Jerry Rice and Len Goodman in a segment they did during the show that was very entertaining. It was like an ESPN Sunday morning show analyzing the final 6 contestants, Kenny Mayne was great and he had loads of make-up on. I will either post a picture on my blog or better yet if a clip shows up on YouTube ASAP.

I have to say that this elimination show was one of the better ones they've done. Or maybe it's because I'm a Kenny Mayne fan I don't know. Oh I know, the less competitors left the less torture we have to see them go through, that's it.

My prediction was right, Jane Seymore is done. I'm not going to say that Marie Osmond should go next because she just lost her dad. She's going to have a tough week.

The Going is Getting Tough

Dancing With the Stars Review:
The judges kept reminding us that they are going to be tougher, yeah, because we're getting down to the finals. No one got anything lower than an 8, but they're tough 8's. Two dances for each couple! And boy did we hear how tough that was. Mel B and Max were awesome again they are my favorites. Did anyone see Mel B give Tom Bergeron a smack on the butt? I swear I did!
On a sad note Marie Osmonds father George passed away this morning. I'm guessing Marie won't be there tonight. Just another twist in this very odd season, what are you going to do it's live TV?
I think Jane should go home tonight, we shall see!

Whoa Heroes!

I think we're starting to get somewhere! Hiro has finished whatever he set out to do in ancient Japan but not without really pissing off the English guy that speaks Japanese, let's call him Adam. So Hiro thinks he saved the world, but we see that Peter has found out there is a new threat looming over mankind - a plague.
Peter has all these super powers but has amnesia and doesn't know how to use them. So he moves in time, just like Hiro, but into the future. Dragging his new Australian girlfriend with him. New York looks deserted until the military shows up and takes them to a decontamination facility. There is where Peters mother shows up but he doesn't know her. She commands him to remember and to save the world. Now if that woman told me to do something I'd do it too. Poor Peter, the first thing he remembers is probably the one thing he's wants to never remember and that's dear ol' mom. She gives me shivers. Peter moves in time again, oh and leaving his new Australian girlfriend in the future, she really knows how to pick em, huh?
We find out that Matt's dad The Nightmare Man isn't the really bad guy, he's a puppet of Adam, the really, really bad guy, you see where I'm going with this? Adam escaped 2 weeks ago and is killing everyone in that picture.
We see Peter in a room trying to figure out where he is and trying to move in time again when someone comes to the door, opens it, Peter shoots an electric fireball at him, it hits his hand and he heals! Oh it's the English guy that speaks Japanese and was in ancient Japan with Hiro. He says, "Peter what are you doing?"
Peter asks, "Who are you?"
And the English guy that speaks Japanese and was in ancient Japan with Hiro says, "It's me Adam."
Oh snap!

And They're Off!

The Amazing Race has started! One of my favorite parts of the show is the nicknames the teams give each other. I only caught a couple last night, the freaks and the blonds. Hopefully we'll get some good ones in episodes to come.
So the couple that came in last this week were Ari and Staella, there are some very different names this season. Ari and Staella are the couple that stole a cab, laughed about it and told their donkey that if it didn't move they would chop it up in to little pieces and eat it. Now that they are out of the race I'm sure PETA will be contacting them for some re-education classes. Everyone who has watched The Amazing Race in the past knows you don't piss off a donkey.

The Office and Earl

My Name is Earl and The Office are TV shows that do not require too many active brain cells to understand, in fact I suggest you turn some off. Also watch these two shows with people, it makes them funnier.
My Name is Earl Review:
Earl is still is jail and Randy is a prison guard. I confess I haven't been following this show very closely. Some shows had to suffer when the Cleveland Indians were in the playoffs, but I don't want to talk about that right now. It was another C.O.P.S. episode, which wasn't as funny as the first time they showed the entire cast on a C.O.P.S. show but then again, I watched it by myself.
The Office Review:
This show is funny whether you watch alone or with your family. The characters are perfect and Pam and Jim are soooo cute together! I'm so glad Stanely isn't leaving. I'm not up to date on all these episodes either, again, the Cleveland Indians, right now I'm leading a basball free life.

It's All About a Million Dollars

Survivor China Review:
They merged! But before the merge there was hidden immunity idol drama. Jamie went through James the Gravedigger's things and felt up his pants, didn't take anything out just felt two of them. Then later saw something on the ground the same size and figured James the Gravedigger must have dropped one, because she's not as dumb as she looks. You have to give the editing guys of Survivor credit, they sure know how to help make someone look stupid. Not that Jamie needed much help, she waved around the fake hidden immunity idol at tribal council to no avail, she's got voted out and Jean-Robert lives to see yet another episode of Survivor China.
Up until last nights episode I hadn't picked who I want to win. But I so want James the Gravedigger to win now. He was awesome last night. His interviews cracked me up, he says it like it is and he called Courtney "that skinny little bitch", not to her face, because it's all about a million dollars.

What Kind of Breakfast is That?

I'm going to leave my spider on my blog, I just have to title it differently. And I'll move him down a little. But he's staying I've grown attached to him, suppose I'll have to name him.
Alright, here is my question of the day: A few Hereo's episodes ago, Claire's mom was making breakfast. She had a pot of boiling water on the stove and she cracked an egg over it and it dropped in and boiled it. I have never seen an egg cooked that way! Has anyone else? What do you call it? Please get back to me on this!

Is That Wrong?

House Review:
House is great. My husband and I love to watch him insult people. Is that wrong? I don't know the medical name for the patient of the episodes aliment so I'll try to describe it. The poor guy doesn't know who he is and his blood is too thick, like sludge. So they have to keep him in a hot tub. And of course run thousands of tests. He has some kind of disorder that has him mimicking the "strong alpha dominating person in the room" or whoever is there by themselves. So all the crazy doctors that want to work for House learn a little bit about themselves this week. Foreman is back working with House, they complete each other. LOL! They will make each other miserable, should be fun to watch.

It's Always Been a Popularity Contest

Dancing With the Stars Review:
I wasn't able to watch live. My husband and I watch House, which was awesome last night, so I watched my recorded Dancing With the Stars elimination show at 6:30 am this morning. But I had to find out who got voted out, so I went to the message boards. Yes, Sabrina getting the axe was a huge surprise and she definitely didn't deserve to go, but if you have been watching long enough you know this is a part talent and a part popularity contest. It's wildly entertaining and if you say you won't watch anymore, I don't believe you.
Now on with the review. Jane Seymour has food poisoning so Tony had to dance by himself in the group dance, yeah that was the encore performance. He also stood alone under the lights and was the second to find out he and Jane were safe. So were Max and Mel and I'm convinced that my voting for them made all the difference. I think Dancing With the Stars got excellent ratings when Marie Osmond fainted, because they are trying to make her faint again and she seemed a little less bubbly this week. Tom Bergeron was just about to tell Marie Osmond and Jonathan if they were safe and Sam sent us to commercial. And thank you so very much Barry Manilow for sticking Mandy in my head for, I'm sure, several days.
Who, besides me, is wondering just a little bit if the stars know they are going home before the show starts? Sabrina looked upset the whole show. I'm just saying. Anyone wondering that?

They Judges Were in a Good Mood, All of Them!

Dancing With the Stars Review:
It seemed like all the judges were in a good mood last night. Or they just like all the stars that are left. They were really careful to tell Jane Seymour she sucked in a nice way. Mel and Max got a perfect 30 and we were told they only practiced for 6 hours. I voted for them again. I didn't get my alloted amount of votes in, this time I run out of time in my time zone. Huh. Jane and Marie Osmond should be in the red lights tonight. Marie Osmond has a huge fan base, so I think Jane Seymour will go.

More Sub-Titles?

Heroes Review:
Oh Dear God another language of subtitles. Ukranian. We had the Japanese subtitles going and the Mexicans were in this episode, why don't they just write a book? You can call me lazy, go ahead. I read all day, by the time I sit down at night I'm tired and just want to be entertained with people and their superpowers.
If you didn't see this episode and you want to know what happened leave a comment or check back later. Because right now I'm a little anti-heroes right now.

Boring Weekend of TV

I settled on watching Crash Saturday night. I'm not really sure what it was about, except a bunch of racist. Late at night on the Game Show Channel I watched Chain Reaction and Lingo. I like word games. But all and all I was reaching there with the game shows. There was nothing on. I did see a commercial telling us the The Amazing Race is starting this coming up weekend, Nov. 4, 2007. Last I checked it wasn't starting until February. Huh.
I hope Dancing With the Stars entertains the hell out of me tonight, I'm sure it will! I hope no one faints this week.

Saturday, October 27, 2007

I Got the TV on the Weekend

My husband has to work tonight. I have two movies recorded for an evening such as this. Crash and The Punisher. I just have to decide which one. If anyone would like to suggest one or the other be my guest.

The Object is to Win

Survivor Review:
Oh for goodness sakes another challenge is being thrown. And wow it doesn't look obvious at all. Let me ask you something. Sure it's great to win a reward challenge, but immunity it where it's at, right? When you have to sit out people for challenges and they can't sit they same person out twice, wouldn't you sit out, for immunity, the one person that continually lets you down, would blow away with a big gust of wind and is an idiot? Sit Courtney's ass down for reward challenges. How is she still there?
Jean-Robert thinks he's in control of the game, because he's a poker player and can read people, he must not be very observant because an immunity idol was found right in front of him and he doesn't know anything about it. Todd is running the game at the moment and he has the numbers on his side, including the clueless Jean-Robert.

Should We Try to Figure out More of Heroes?

There's a love triangle brewing in ancient Japan between Hiro, the Japanese girl and the English guy that speaks Japanese. Nuff said, it bores the hell out of me.
When last we discussed Heroes, Mohinder was fretting over Molly and decides to take her to the very people he was hiding her from. This is against the strong advice of H.R.G. (Horned Rimmed Glasses). But he does it anyway because he's just a scientist and stupid. He sees Nikki there only she's in Jessica mode and he tasers her. Then when she Nikki again he tells her he's getting her out of there. She says no way I like being locked up, they're going to help me.
More head spinning logic.
Mohinder is sent on assignment, yes he leaves Molly's side, with his secret institution issued taser, to go pick up a subject. That subject is Micahs girl cousin. The one that can learn anything by watching it.
I went to bed with the head spins after this episode and I was even drinking.

She See's Dead People Cuz She's Trippin'

I love House. My husband would punch him in the face if we had him as a doctor. Yes, I know he's not really a doctor. A doctor like him I mean. I'm really starting to hate the blond girl that got the diagnosis right this week. House is screwing with all of them and it's great. Last episode when he was getting rid of applicants he had a Tribal Council, like on Survivor. This week he gave flowers to all the applicants but one, like on The Bachelor. It was a hoot! I hope he weeds out the rest of them soon, because I miss Wilson/House interaction. Too many characters. Anyway, the patient that saw dead people, was an organic freak. She was tripping on mold that was growing on her bread and the combination concocted ingredients that they use to make LSD. How do they think up these things?

This is a Family Show Mark Cuban

Dancing With the Stars Elimination Extravaganza Show Review:
I won't make you wait until the very end of my long drawn out post to see who gets eliminated - Mark Cuban!
We got to see Max and Mel dance again, because the judges liked them best this week. And all my voting for Max paid off they were in the top two instead of the bottom two. Panning the audience we see Florence Henderson aka Mrs. Brady there again. Every week she's there. And she's heavily involved in the "audience comments" portion of the show. Are we going to see a Brady next season?
And Dancing With the Stars Recap show, who does recap to the hilt, shows us unseen before footage of Marie Osmond fainting. They showed us several times.
Mark Cuban will now learn that you don't say the "F" word on Dancing With the Stars, even if it's bleeped out. This is a whole different audience Mark!
I'm looking forward to the following weeks. All of the stars left are pretty good and when they start getting eliminated I might feel a little bad for them.

My Head is Still Spinning

Heroes Review:
Where do I start? We only had Japanese sub-titles this week no Mexican. The two dads and a girl are very much a part of this episode. Mohinder tells Matt since you sent Molly into a coma you might as well go after your father. All of a sudden Matt's hesitant, I guess it was okay when Molly was in danger, but whoa, you want me to do what? Mohinders stays back to fret over Molly and Matt teams up with Nathan and they head over to apartment 9. They got there quick because Nathan flew them there. Dear ol' dad is overpowered by Matt and tells him just take off these hand-cuffs and I'll tell you everything. Oh and dad can read minds too! It's a hereditary thing I guess. Dad tells Matt I need to show you something in this room back here. Right. Matt falls for it and finds himself in a jail. Nathan breaks down the door and finds himself in blown up New York. This is where my head started to spin, a lot. Because it looked like they were each fighting someone else. Matt, the prison guard and Nathan, the burned up Nathan in the mirror. But they were really fighting each other. And that my friends is why Molly calls Matt's father the Nightmare Man. Wheew!
to be continued.......

Gotta Love Live TV

Marie Osmond is genuinely having the time of her life on Dancing With The Stars. You can just tell she's having fun. Laughing and not taking the judges as seriously as they take themselves. I was thinking yesterday, "Jeez, I haven't really written a word about Marie Osmond in my review blog." I thought of something, but I'll save it. Because everyone is talking about Marie Osmond fainting on Live TV. She finished her dance with her dance partner Jonathan, she's waving to the audience, hugging Jonathan and Tom Bergeron, going back and forth with the judges. Len (we only call him Lennie when we speak of his favorite Jennie) started to tell her the dance wasn't that good, in a nice way, when she went down in a thud. Tom Bergeron, Len and Jonathan were visably upset. Tom Bergeron sent us to commercial. Extra commercials, but no one changed the channel. I called my mom to make sure she was watching. She was. Tom Bergeron brought us back and told us all is well, Marie is back stage, she just fainted. We see her in the arms of Jonathan, telling us that sometimes when she gets winded she faints. Good to know, now. The judges still think her Samba was just so, so. She gets 7's from all of them. At this point in the major competition, it's a little low. Do you hear that Mark Cuban?
Mark Cuban said the "F" word. Actually he said the "F" word and the judges in the same sentence. F#$% the judges. Whoa! Can you say the "F" word on Dancing With The Stars? His partner, Kim I think, said, "You can't say that." Damn right! My 70 year old mother is watching. He wanted to make their dance different. They used the "I Dream of Jeannie" song. Kim was dressed like the Jeannie and Mark Cuban was dressed like a nerd. Hello? Everyone knows that Jeannie was found by the astronaut, J.R. Ewing.
I voted! I voted until my voting quota was used up for Max and whatshername. I have no idea who will be under the red lights tonight. But I hope it's Mark Cuban.

No World Series For Me!

I'm not as grumpy as I thought I'd be. Maybe because I am a Cleveland fan and I'm use to disappointment. Yeah, that's it. My husband bought me a mocha cappuccino this morning, that helps my mood tremendously. For some reason Cleveland fans are not allowed to enjoy sports. I listen to a local talk show on WTAM in Cleveland, the Triv Show, Triv is very much a Cleveland fan. He told us Friday, if the Indians lose this ALCS series, he's taking this week off. Because he would be too pissed off to do his show. It would be bad radio, he said. We'll see what happens a 3:00 pm today. I kind of hope he's not there, I don't want him to bring me down from my mocha cappuccino high.

Do you Really Want to Make James the Gravedigger Mad?

Survivor Review:
Survivor powers that be had a new shake up of the tribes this season. Which ended up having two members from each tribe switch. The Zhan Hu tribe ends up with Aaron and James the gravedigger. Jamie and Peih Gee do a little strategizing and decide to throw the challenges to get rid of Aaron and James the gravedigger. Because it's all about the merge. So they giggle through the entire challenge. Then admit at tribal council that they threw the challenge. James is pissed. Real pissed. And they vote off Aaron. Huh? Do they think James the gravedigger is going to pull his weight around camp now? This will come back to bite them in the butt.
Their silent partner, Erik goes along with the plan after it's over. My head hurts. Erik is going to follow Jamie around like a puppy dog the rest of the season. They had a touching conversation in the water, about how they like each other, they trust each other and oh by the way Erik is a virgin. I don't know why we need to know this or why the entire viewing audience does, but we do, so let's just see were this bit of information goes in the weeks that follow.

Dancing with the Stars 1st Week - Albert Reed

This is one of my favorites if not the favorite dances of the season so far! I will miss Albert Reeds hip action!

Rose Petal Cottage

I recorded Heroes and when I record a television show I fast forward through the commercials. Except when the dog needs attention, I leave them on. Why the hell didn't anyone think to invent the Rose Petal Cottage when I was a little girl?

Wow, Nathan's a Babe

Heroes Review:

I never noticed last year. Maybe because he was a politician. But now he’s hot, except when he looks in a mirror and a severely burned face looks back.
Claire is lying to her Horned Rimmed Glasses father and he’s lying to her. Same old, same old.
Micah is living with his Katrina surviving cousins and his grandmother, Lt. Uhura. The older girl cousin is discovering she has hero powers. She can watch something on TV and instantly learn it. Kind of like Neo on The Matrix. She knows Kung Fu.

Now let’s review the two bachelors, Matt and Mohinder, living in a secret apartment with the Creepy Girl. Its all kinds a wrong but they’re protecting her. From who, well a guy that is scarier than Sylar and we find out its Matt’s father. This is where my eyes crossed a little bit and I amazingly kept watching. Creepy Girl agrees to “find” Matt’s scary father. That is her hero power, she can find anyone with a map and a pushpin. He’s in an apartment building, in apartment number 9. Mohinder is really pissed at Matt because he’s putting Creepy Girl (Molly) in danger. Molly freaks out and says he knows I’m here and she collapses, but Matt can still hear her calling for help. Mohinder’s really pissed now.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Under the Red Lights?

The hell you say! And next week is Latin Week? I got the Cleveland Indians on one channel and Max in the red lights on another channel. You know what this means don't you? I have to start voting now.
What happened to Gloria Estefan? I thought she was suppose to entertain us. That's the problem switching back and forth, you miss the explainations. Drew Lachey has made a career out of Dancing With The Stars and was reunited with his dance partner Cheryl. They danced to Wayne Newton (yeah, he's back) singing Danke Shen. I couldn't watch. I know Wayne Newton is a legend but.............damn, people pay to see him perform? I've said too much, but he should retire. Really.

Floyd the boxer went home and Mark Cuban lives to dance another day. So I was half right.
