Week in Review…Early Again – 9/18/2010

So I may or may not be leaving the state for a much needed mini-vacay, but I didn’t want to leave the blog hanging, so the review is a day early again this week.

*I am definitely going to need an iTunes budget with all the upcoming new music, plus Glee. For those of you who missed it, iTunes posted all the Glee Season 1 tracks on their service, including some that were previously unavailable like Accafella’s riveting version of “I Want to Sex You Up.”

*I made the best discovery ever this week. Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester from Supernatural for those of you playing the home game) can totally sing. Simply because I can, enjoy his cover of The Band’s “The Weight” below.

*While I’m not sure One Tree Hill came back with a bang, it certainly came back with a bite. Given that this season picks up right after the finale last season, it seems awfully miraculous that every female character has a completely different hair color. The Clay/Quinn thing was completely contrived and predictable, yet still managed to make me yell at my TV when Nathan walked away from the house. Favorite line of the night came from Julian when he told Brooke’s mom to “Get Alexander’s dingo out of your wallaby and fix this!”

*I can already see Life Unexpected is going to frustrate me this season since we now know that Ryan has a dirty little secret named Julia tucked away in his past. And once again, Baze gets screwed…granted if he would start thinking with his brain instead of his libido, he may also get to win occasionally.

*The Vampire Diaries is still amazing. The writers are showing no mercy this season to any character. I enjoyed the scene between Damon and Jeremy and hope that they explore that dynamic as the season goes on. I am also loving Caroline the vampire. Not that we need more Stefan’s in the world, but I don’t want Matt to get his heart broken again.

*While I’m not sure how riveted I am by Nikita herself, I am completely fascinated by Lindsey Fonseca’s character, Alex. Hopefully, they’ll keep pushing her out there more. And for the record, I disagree with the critics’ assessment of Shane West’s performance as stiff. I think he’s just warming up.

All right, I’m outtie. Everyone go see The Easy A and watch Ghost Adventures tonight. They’re in Gettysburg so it should be interesting.

Peace!

Sarah’s Weekly Preview – 9/12/10

First, I have to apologize for being absent lately. My excuse? I’ve been completely wrapped up in the sadly disappointing end of “As the World Turns,” and the couple I was watching for: Luke and Reid. Expect a rant dressed up as a column on that soon.Also, just as I sent Mel into the world of  “Merlin” and Camelot, she has trapped me in the back of Dean Winchester’s Impala. It’s so very comfy back there, I don’t plan on leaving soon.

So, finally, here is a preview to what to watch this week (this may seem like a repeat of my last preview, but never fear, next week will be better)!

Monday: Rizzoli & Isles. I can’t say enough about this show, it’s frickin’ awesome. God bless you TNT for airing this amazing show. And even if you don’t do femmeslash, the lesbian undertones in this show are barely undertones at all. I get why there’s so much slash fic for this show running around. Unfortunately the sneek peek from TNT won’t embed, so I can only give you the link: http://www.tnt.tv/dramavision/index.jsp?oid=69096&eref=sharethisUrl

Tuesday: The first half of the two-part season finale to “Warehouse 13” on SyFy airs this week! After a season of romance, insanity (literally) and body-swapping, it’s sure to be an amazing finale. They go to Egypt y’all, it’s bound to be epic. Also, the season finale of “Covert Affairs” on USA.

Wednesday: Because I don’t watch reality television, hump day is a dry television day, at least until “Criminal Minds” returns, and even then I’m not that psyched. So I plan on feverishly watching all the seasons of “Supernatural” so far so I can be ready for the sixth season. I suggest you use it to catch up on your favorite show too.

Thursday: The Vampire Diaries on The CW. I still consider myself somewhat a newbie when it comes to show, but I was very much impressed with the acting from all the lead characters last week. Nina Dobrev did amazing with the double-acting of Elena and Catherine, Paul Wesley seemed to realize he wasn’t the small screen’s Edward Cullen and went from broody to sinister and I loved it. Ian Somerhalder was, of course, brilliant and I’m really looking forward to see how the seaosn goes. After that there’s “Nikita,” which I also really enjoyed and didn’t expect to.

Mel already posted the preview for next week’s TVD, so here’s the promo for “Nikita”

The Weekend I leave up to you, gentle viewer, since there usually isn’t anything on except movies and sports. I plan on spending more time watching Sam brood behind his ever-growing bangs and Dean wolf down some more food.

See you next week when finally television returns!
