Here we go again

October 14, 2005

More TV- you’d think I haven’t got a life.. Which I don’t really, by the way, but I did go out on Wednesday night so I suppose I’m not a complete loner.. Anyway, I discovered a new show last night – House. Now I don’t know what season it was or anything, I have never watched it before, but it was quite good. I used to watch Chicago Hope a lot when I was younger, and ER in it’s glory days, but since then I’ve kind of gone off medical dramas. So it was nice to see one that I can start to watch, seeing as I clearly don’t watch enough TV as it is… I guess it could be that it’s not really that good and I just caught one of the better episodes, but I’ll keep watching for now. and it has Billy from neighbours in it, so it can’t be all that bad – even though he is nowhere near as good looking as I remembered him from Neighbours.

Also caught last night, One Tree Hill. What is going on there? Why would Hailey even imagine leaving Nathan for that Chris guy? OK, so Nathan isn’t all that, but Chris is just repulsive. Really. But I really like Lucas’ mum’s new boyfriend. He is hot… And what is up with Lucas moving in with Dan? I missed the first 10 minutes of last nights episode, so I didn’t really get that bit. I guess it is to buy his medicines but the whole thing is a little far fetched (like the rest of the show is so realistic…). I am liking that teacher guy who is seeing Karen’s mum. He’s hot. I wish he was my teacher. Not that I have any teachers.

Do-not-miss telly tonight:

  • 8.00 Eastenders
  • 9.00 Boston Legal (I just discovered this a couple of weeks ago – love it) But I have just realised have I got news for you is back on BBC with Jack Dee as guest host. What to do, what to do…
  • 10.00 QI – it’s funny and makes me feel clever because it is hosted by Stephen Fry
  • 10.35 – Friday Night With Jonathan Ross.

That’s about it. My friday routine usually involves falling asleep on the sofa somewhere near the end Jonathan Ross – you’d think I was about 40 years old or something… I think I have entered middle age somewhat early.

More TV

October 12, 2005

I’m still watching Veronica Mars, and I’m liking it more and more. I have missed out a couple of episodes due to Living TV’s ridiculous scheduling (every day is just stupid..) But yesterday’s episode was quite enjoyable – and the teacher man seemed quite familiar.. I could be wrong, but is it the boss from 21 Jump street? I used to love that show when I was younger, I remember it used to be on just after I got home from school, and I have seen every episode several times, as my best friend taped all of them.. Unfortunately she has since taped over them and I haven’t seen it for years – and that is probably a good thing, it may have lost some of it’s magic as I have gotten older. Although I wouldn’t bet on it, I still love cheesy American teen dramas. And Johnny Depp is still hot. I did see a box set in HMV the other day, perhaps I should invest..

TV and stuff

October 6, 2005

I haven’t been blogging for a while – I’ve had the flu, so I really didn’t feel like it. But now I feel better, so here I am. The good thing about being ill is that you have a great excuse to just lie on the sofa and watch crap TV. So you can safely say that I’ve had my share of crappy daytime TV, which seems to mainly be about paternity tests and lie detector tests, for a while…

Anyway, Living started showing Veronica Mars this week (great timing), and I had heard quite a bit about it so I got very excited. They are showing it every day (when is that ever a good idea, once a week is enough – I have other things to do), so I have seen the first three episodes so far. I’m not sure what I think. It’s not quite what I expected – for some reason I had imagined it to be a bit more snappy… A bit like Buffy. But it’s not. The strange thing is though, I don’t really mind that it’s not. I think I like it – and I’ll keep watcing. For now. But please, one episode per week is enough!! Or maybe two.

Anyway, I’m off to watch old episodes of Buffy. Season 6, when she is rolling in the haystack with Spike. I know a lot of people thought that was stupid, but it was the best bit of the whole show. We all love a bit of a bad boy…
