The Wheel of Fortune, Still on the Air

Holy Crap! The Wheel of Fortune is still on TV? During an early flip through the channels today (because I'm lost without my Dancing With The Stars) I stumbled upon Pat Sajak and Vanna White. Vanna is still in charge of the letters but doesn't have to turn them anymore, she just pushes a button. Pat couldn't sound any less enthused.
Question? Do the producers of the show pick dumb contestants to play so those of us at home can feel smarter? For the five minutes that I watched, I saw two guys that were a team, go bankrupt twice and ask to buy the vowel A............ twice.
Dude, it's Leprechauns hidden pot of gold. You can't see that?
Apparently in an effort to spice things up, there are teams playing against each other. Tonight was Grads and Dads, clever. The dad on the far right is going to have his hands full with his grad, the hot-headed Wheel of Fortune player that buys for A's before thinking.
During my five minutes of The Wheel of Fortune the camera's didn't zoom in on Pat or Vanna, so I can not report on how well they are holding up. But they have to be the two most boring people in the world after playing Hangman for, what? about 50 years.

Thank You Dancing With The Stars

For entertaining the hell out of me! Call me a geek if you want to but I love Dancing With The Stars and I enjoyed this season a ton! I even voted the last week and I'm convince that I'm the one who was responsible for Kristi Yamaguchi winning the Big Giant Mirror Ball Trophy. I've watched the Cha Cha Face Off on You Tube about 7 times already and decided it needs to be on my blog:

I enjoyed Dancing With The Stars more than American Idol this season. There has been rumor and speculation about Paula Abdule being interested in next season's Dancing with The Stars. Oh please, please, please let that crazy woman be on the next season. That's an entertainment bloggers dream. Is there a petition I can sign to get her on the show?

Getting to the Bottom of LOST

I’m thinking of taking my economic stimulus check, hopping on a plane to Hawaii, then rent a car and drive around the islands until I find out what the hell is going on, on my favorite show LOST.

Who’s with me? I’m going to need a head count when it comes to the car rental part of the trip. I love LOST but I can’t take it anymore. I’m the kind of person that reads the end of a book first. It doesn’t help any that Claire seems to be in on what’s going on. She’s hanging out with her dead father now. I guess that’s more fun than dragging a baby around the jungle week after week.

So when you get your economic stimulus check, let’s go stimulate the hell out of Hawaii and find some answers!

Oh and I haven’t posted on LOST because being the impatient person that I am I’ve found out some spoilers and I’m afraid to slip!

American Idol Dorks

Finally! Jason Castro is free of American Idol. He didn't want to be there anymore than Simon does. I really think he tried out as a bet with his buddies and as a fluke made it as far as he did. I heard Ryan say, "You almost look relieved that you're leaving."
Jason actually said, "Yeah a little bit. There are three songs next week, I didn't know what I was going to do."
After seeing the Ford Mustang Commercial they had to star in, I got down on my knees and thanked the Lord above for a fast-forward button. The four finalists will be haunted the rest of their lives with those embarrassing matador costumes. I can't watch these results shows anymore and expect to keep my sanity.

A Decent Set of Knockers

Only in the name of science could House deliver the line, "Where can I find a decent set of knockers?" My husband and I laughed so hard we cried. House was trying to find out if his patient was impotent. In the name of science I'm telling you. The patient ended up having an allergy to quinine but getting to the diagnosis is quite entertaining. Hey Dr. House! Just look at my previous post!

Just Leave Paula Alone

She's an American Idol treasure for God's sake. And she can tell the future. What would the American Idol wanna-be's do without her infinite wisdom? Go right from Randy's "check it out dawg it was a little pitchy for me" to Simon telling them they sounded like cruise ship entertainment and they are utterly boring and forgettable? Paula is their "take a deep breath" babble buffer. A lull between two storms. A voice of non-sensical, un-constructed criticism. And she tells them they look good.
I've read the blogs. There are those who think enough is enough, Paula should leave the show. The hell you say! She's damn good, live television entertainment!

Explaining LOST

If you are a avid watcher of LOST have you ever tried to explain a scene to anyone that isn't? Last episode the husband decided to stay up instead of going to bed when LOST came on. He's under strict instructions to be quiet until commercials. During the episode when Sawyer found Aaron alone in the jungle crying I knew there was no way I could explain this to him to have it make any sense. But it went a little something like this:

That man in the middle of the night, deep in the jungle, that Claire saw holding her baby, Aaron, is indeed her dad. Only he's suppose to be dead, that's why Jack was in Australia, to bring back his body. Oh, Jack and Claire are brother and sister by the same dead guy, but they don't know they are related. This dead guy keeps showing up on craphole island, Jack found his coffin, conveniently empty.
So Claire followed the dead guy that was holding her baby and disappeared. Aaron, who Claire has been holding since she had him, is alone crying in the jungle. So where the hell is Claire? Walking around the jungle with a dead guy?

You see where I'm coming from? Claire has already gone missing, we've been there and done that. We know something happens to Claire and she doesn't make it off the island and Aaron does. I can't think of anything more annoying as to why if the explanation is that she just disappeared.

Survivor Blindsiding

It's awesome to watch these people get voted off not having a clue that they are about to be blind sided. Three blind sides in a row, Ozzy, Jason and then Alexis. Natalie is becoming quite the Survivor Bitch and it seems to be a role she's very comfortable in. She just might have a place in the top 5 bitches of Survivor secure. She wants to floss her teeth with Jason's jugular. Yikes!
James injured a finger, it got infected and medical took him out of the game. He's one of my favorite survivors. He walked into Tribal council and sat in the jury box hooked up to an IV. Another Survivor first. I'm going to miss him.
I'm enjoying this season. To keep my view of the television shows I watch my own, I've been avoiding the site Television Without Pity. One of my favorite sites and I will be catching up over there during the summer. There are some good writers on that site.
