The Return of Television

April 29, 2008 at 11:16 pm (Entertainment, movies, TV)

Well scripted television shows are slowly returning as we quickly approach May sweeps.  It’s the time of year networks show their best episodes, of their best shows and the ratings count the most towards advertiser dollars and renewal contracts for the fall.

My first episode of Overhaulin’ premiered last week. Fans were overall positive about the new show, saying they liked the new format and felt it was more like a car show.  TLC hasn’t been advertising it much though, and has hidden their website for it so I’m fairly certain it’s done for – but that’s NEVER written in stone and just me guessing.  It was a fun show to work on although I’m sad I never got to meet Chip Foose.  

Being an editor you see so much footage of the people on the show you feel like you know them – although you don’t and they have NO idea who you are for the most part.

I’m still working on Bridezilla’s Season 5.  We are about 1/2 way thru our episodes and will premiere in June.  The staff has changed a bit and overall I like everyone I’m working with.  

What am I watching now??  Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty, Hell’s Kitchen, of course Battlestar Galatica, and House.  I will be watching Heroes and I do catch Lost online.

Summer movies??

I bought tickets early for Sam and I to see both Iron Man and the new Indiana Jones movie opening weekends at the Arclight Hollywood.  If any of you live in Los Angeles and haven’t been to the Arclight theatre, it’s the best.  From reserved seating, to no lines, optimal sound and audio, and your feet not sticking to the floors it’s Sam and my favorite theatre.  Sam’s resistant to us going to the theatre at all, wanting to save for a huge HD TV, but there are just some movies you HAVE to see opening weekend.

Other ones I want to go see:  Get Smart, Wall-E, Wanted, Dark Knight, Hell Boy 2, X-Files, and maybe Tropic Thunder.  Some I will rent, but that’s WAY more movies than last summer.  Last summer was disappointing.

What are you watching right now? And what summer movies are you looking forward to??

    Well Natalie, I’m glad you asked about the movies this summer. Hoping to go see Iron Man this weekend, and as luck would have it we are going to see Indiana Jones with you and your husband for double date night! HOORAYYYY!! Can’t wait!

    Movies I’ve seen so far include:

    Made of Honor – can’t help my love for McDreamy, although the big screen transition for him wasn’t as Dreamy as I thought it would be, not a horrible movie, definitely cheesy, girlie fun

    Baby Mama – I have mad love for my girl Tina Fey, not all the funny parts were advertised, and I definitely laughed out loud at a handful of parts, and many surprises – Steve Martin, Greg Kinnear
    another fun movie for the girls

    Harold and Kumar Escape from G. Bay – No, you don’t have to partake in “bake” sale before you see this flick. It was really funny, and lots of stuff that kind of knocks you on your ass and you can’t believe that just happened on screen. Wish there would have been more of NPH. Never enough Doogie!

    Forgetting Sarah Marshall – Hands down the FUNNIEST movie I’ve seen in FOREVER. Funnier than Superbad, or 40 year-old virgin or Knocked- Up. Marshall (Jason Siegel) from HIMYM, totally steals the movie. He doesn’t even try to be funny, he just is hilarious on screen. His Dracula Rock Opera steals the show! I love this movie and I will see it again and again and buy it on DVD. TWO THUMBS WAY WAY WAY UP!!!!

    Movies I can’t wait for are:

    The SEX AND THE CITY movie! I see the previews and I’m over the moon. Guess you aren’t as huge a fan of SATC as me though.

    Dark Knight, the previews are SCARY, but I’m really interested…

    Indiana Jones is going to be awesome, even if it isn’t awesome, its still Indy!

    This summer will be great! Tons of movies to escape to in the theater. Love, love, love it!
