The Ex List Xed off CBS

October 28, 2008 at 11:41 am (babbling, Entertainment, TV) (, , , , , , )

No more “The Ex List” on CBS.  Which I don’t think anyone was watching it, so no big deal there.

Sam and I gave up and deleted “Heroes” 2 weeks ago.  I felt guilty for about an hour or two, and then heard more friends deleting it and felt empowered.  I don’t want the creator Tim Kring to think he’s on the right track.

I loved Yahoo’s Jump the Shark list.  They list Heroes, Top Model, and Project Runway all which I agree with.  They add Prison Break (which I never got into), and then Hell’s Kitchen.

So what’s next to get canceled?  My guess Sara Conner Chronicles or Crusoe or Kathy and Kim.

Anyone add any of the new shows I’ve missed and absolutely love it/recommend me adding it?? My only two must see shows are Chuck and Fringe.  Chuck has had episodes with Huey Lewis and Rush… it’s makes me laugh EVERY week.  Always something new.

Other than that, I have an orange belt now and I’m aiming for yellow in December.

Anyone have any fun Halloween plans?? Sam and I will be at the Charity Screening/Party of Dr. Horrible at the Regency.

Chuck’s Premiere

October 1, 2008 at 11:41 am (babbling, Entertainment, TV) (, , , , , )

The Chuck premiere of Season 2 was Monday night.  Sam and I Tivoed it and watched it last night with Fringe.  These two pair very well together.  Fringe keeps you thinking, guessing and watching for new clues.  Chuck keeps you laughing and smiling.

Chuck encourages people to strive for more, to reach outside their comfort zone, to take a chance, and to embrace life.  The series is a bit of romance, a bunch of action and all spiced up with geek humor.  Subtleties like the name brand of the cereal Chuck is eating he sees something he wishes he had not, to the cheesy heart of the show made both me and my husband smile ear to ear.  I believe the Buy More could be in Burbank, and I’ve worked with people similar to Chuck’s co-workers there.  Please just don’t ask Scott about the pixie sticks.  🙂

John Larroquette will be on next week’s episode of Chuck.  So if you haven’t seen it yet and you have a soft spot in your heart for geeks and action, tune in or netflix it!!

Did anyone see the Life premiere? I missed it.

Tonight there’s lots for you to watch or Tivo:  Dirty Sexy Money and Pushing Daisies would be the two I would recommend for tonight.

All this to say:  Don’t forget to go outside and play!! Tivoing your shows and having just 1 or 2 nights a week to marathon is MUCH better than sitting inside on the couch every night.  I’ve lost 20 pounds since the Spring and I’ve never felt better.  I still have a ways to go, but being active is an even better escape than television.
