No More Hiatus!

March 28, 2007 at 12:18 pm (Television)

 Ok this is going to be a rant but bear with me. I am just upset right now because both of my favourite shows The Office and ER have decided to take a bit of a hiatus. I am sure that all the Lost fans out there can sympathize with me because that show also took a very long break.

 The thing is that ER took a break after two of my favourite characters got together and now I have to wait over a month to find out what happened. Now The Office on the other hand is that one show that I look forward to every Thursday but for the last couple of weeks I have been disappointed to realize that the show either wasn’t on or they were showing reruns.

Now I know that they can only shoot so many episodes per season but instead of having that giant break in between shows just end the season sooner. I just think that people would appreciate it if their shows were shown consistently , it makes things easier to follow and remember and it keeps the audiance interested.

Anyways I guess that I will just have to depend on Grey’s Anatomy to get me through this dry spell.

Dancing with the Stars an Abomination

March 21, 2007 at 10:02 am (Television)

I was flipping through the channels the other day and paused just long enough on I think Extra to see Joey Fatone dancing. I was kind of taken aback but then I realized that the next season of Dancing with the Stars had just begun.

I really don’t get it when I saw the ads for the first season of this show I started to laugh thinking how quickly it would be taken off the air. To my surprise and horror this piece of garbage is still on and still getting incredible ratings from what I hear.

I really just don’t get it I am a big fan of reality I love Big Brother and Do you Think you Can Dance? but Dancing with the Stars is just terrible. It’s hard to believe that people actually enjoy watching “celebrities” awkwardly trying to make it through a dance routine.

Britney Out of Control

February 21, 2007 at 8:39 pm (Television)

So like most of you this week I have been bombarded with pictures of Britney Spears with her newly shaved head. Yeah it was kind of funny to see for the first time but now it just seems like her life is out of control.We all knew that something was amiss when she married K-Fed (I mean what girl in her right mind would ever be with him) and then she had those two babies.

Even when everybody thought that her life couldn’t get any crazier she became best friends with Paris Hilton and started flashing people. 

Her crazy lifestyle is not what has been bothering me, what scares me is that she has two young children. It seems like at this point she is barely able to take care of herself let alone her kids. At this point most people would suggest giving her sons to their father until she figures things out but their father is K-Fed enough said.

I do kind of sympathize with Spears but I think that it was extremely irresponsible for her to have those kids at such a young age and with such an unstable lifestyle. Hopefully she will take rehab a little more seriously then some other young stars (Lindsey Lohan) and get her life in order if not for her then for the kids.

TV Recap

February 16, 2007 at 11:56 pm (Television)

So every Thursday I sit down and watch all of my favourite shows, this would include ER, The Office, Grey’s Anatomy and The Duel. This week I was totally impressed by how good each episode was.

First I will start with Grey’s Anatomy,  personally I think that Meredith is a little too dramatic about things and the whole her almost dying was kind of stupid but the rest of the episode was fantastic! Izzy finally started saving lives again, George found that little boy and Alex helped people and professed some feelings for Addison. I can’t wait until Addison and Alex officially get together!

The Office was awesome (although it always is)  it was however missing that Pam and Jim connection which I love so much. When Michael came and complimented Pam on her paintings I was totally relieved, she just seemed so sad before he came. Finally how funny was it when Jim was trying to convince Dwight that he was turning into a vampire! I love when Jim plays pranks on Dwight just because they are so clever and the reactions that Dwight has are hilarious.

Sadly Thursday was also the season finale of The Duel a Survivor like show on MTV. I am so happy that Wes won he totally deserved it!

I love Thursdays!

I also included this little Office clip because I really like it and Dwight, Jim and Pam are my favourite characters in the show.

The Office Recap

February 2, 2007 at 3:28 pm (Television)

 

So I don’t know about anybody else but I was really excited to see a brand new episode of The Office on yesterday. Like always it was super outrageous and ridiculously funny.

I am so happy that Karen and Jim are starting to have problems with their relationship. Hopefully by the end of this season fans will finally get what they have been waiting for for three years now, Jim and Pam together!

So enough about that, how funny was Benjamin Franklin. I could not stop laughing! The fact that he came completely dressed in his Ben Franklin outfit and then became all creepy and kept hitting on Pam was hilarious! Also I love when Michael asked the guys who wanted man meat.  I would also like to give out a little shout out to Todd Packer who shows up every once in a while and makes the episodes so much better.

For those of you who don’t watch the show I know that you will have no idea what I am talking about but hopefully there will be at least a couple of you out there who can follow this blog. Finally this opening was awesome so I had to include it, Michael and Dwight together are so good!

Grey’s Controversy

January 30, 2007 at 3:12 pm (Television)

 

I know that a lot of people in our class love Grey’s and I am no exception. I love the characters in it and the plot line is also pretty interesting. However the brilliance of the show has been overshadowed as of late by the ugliness of prejudice. By now I am sure that everyone has heard the details behind Isaiah Washington’s two outbursts.

I can honestly say that I have no sympathy for the man and think that he should be fired. I know that I am not alone in this regard, they did a vote on Extra or something and the outcome was pretty overwhelming in its verdict. I don’t remember the exact numbers but it was something like over 80% of the viewers thought that he should be fired.

So why hasn’t it been done? At this point the only thing Washington has to do is go to counselling which is barely a slap on the wrist. This is a big show that is bringing in a lot of money, I don’t understand why they would risk viewer’s for a man that has spoken such hateful words on at least two occassions.

If you watch interviews with a lot of the cast members it seems like they are equally opposed to his behaviour and ultimately this situation must have led to some tension on the set. How awful would it be for T.R. Knight to have to go to work knowing that Washington has been pretty obvious in his beliefs surrounding gay people.

Some people might argue that his character is essential for the show but I would disagree. All they have to do is make his hand injury one that can’t be fixed and have Christina say no to his proposal and bye, bye Dr. Burke, people would get over it.

I know that this is a long rant but I just want Grey’s Anatomy to go back to being that fun show that I wanted to watch every Thursday, that show where ultimately the entire cast of characters came together to help people and gave me that one hour of blissful entertainment. My sister argued that it is still a good show but for me it is just not the same.

I really think that this clip really sums up everything and gives a better idea of what is happening behind the scenes at Grey’s Anatomy. I think that it is really sad that people are still so hateful and I really hope that Washington pays for what has been said. Finally I just want to throw out my support to T.R. Knight (George O’Malley) he is awesome and has always been my favourite cast member!

The Office

January 24, 2007 at 1:13 pm (Television)

This really has nothing to do with what we are learning but I love the show so I have to write about it in my brand new blog. First I can not say how happy I am that Pam and Jim seem to be flirting and affectionate once again. When those two team up you know that the pranks that they pull on Dwight or more recently Bernard are going to awesome.

I’m also really glad that Dwight has been brought back to Dunder Mifflin by Michael (how funny was the scene where they were “reunited”). Dwight is a staple of the show and it would not be nearly as funny if he left.

I am also quite partial to Ryan and Toby their facial expressions are more hilarious than a lot of what they say. Finally we have to truly appreciate the genious of Michael Scott although a lot of his rants are so embarassing I can hardly watch.

Finally I can’t wait until Thursday I promise you that I will have much more to say about The Office on Friday so stayed tuned. I’m really hoping that there are some other fans out there so if you love the show let me know.
