Two pop culture addicts' snarky musings…

Posts tagged ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Weekly Preview – 10/4/2010

So I’m not so good with the punctuality, hence, my very first preview being what you might call…late. So without further ado, let’s check out what’s happenin’ this week in the world of pop culture.

Monday – I like the way this season of House is progressing, so that’s definitely worth a watch. The must see of Monday night is still Hawaii Five-0. It’s just a delicious blend of snarky, sexy goodness.

New Release Tuesday – If you don’t own it already, or if you’re dazzled by an upgrade from platinum to diamond, buy Beauty and the Beast on Disney Blu-Ray and DVD starting tomorrow. You won’t be sorry because Robby Bensen is sexy (two words: Ice Castles) and because Belle is my hero.

Not a whole lot coming out tomorrow in the way of new music. If you’re an American Idol junkie, Archie aka David Archeleta has a new album coming out tomorrow. Oh, and it’s always Glee day on Tuesday so there’s that…if nothing else, check out Finn’s version of “Losing My Religion”.

Wednesday is my Euchre night so I’m not so much with the TV, but I do take time later on to watch Modern Family, which you should already be watching. Yes, that is the sound of me judging you for not watching.

Thursday – I’m still behind on Fringe, Hart Hanson has managed to write two episodes of Bones in which the characters do nothing but mill around each other and Grey’s Anatomy is lame. Okay, so that leaves…watching Private Practice because even though Grey’s has lost it, Shonda Rhimes is still a genius; watching Vampire Diaries because Nina Dobrev is impressively bipolar playing two characters on the same show and Ian Somerhalder is heartbreaking; and watching Nikita because it’s just good junk food tv.

Friday – Cas is back! This Friday’s episode marks the return of Castiel to the Supernatural scene. Apparently Heaven’s in turmoil and the apocalypse left a few loose ends behind when thwarted. Just watch it.

Saturday is officially Merlin day and there is at least one solid Gwen/Arthur moment in this week’s episode so I am all over it.

Week in Review – 9/25/2010

Ok, so there must be balance in the universe, thus a late Week in Review…all right, all right, I was tired, I have visitors and the blog has a had a lonely, neglected week. But better late than never right?

*I have decided that Jonathan Rhys Myers has the opposite problem of Orlando Bloom – he is a much better actor when he keeps his own accent. That being said, watch From Paris With Love anyway because John Travolta is a total badass in it.

*If you didn’t watch last week’s Hawaii Five-0, you totally missed out. Catch up on Hulu tonight and watch episode 2 tomorrow. You can check out my review in an earlier post if you need more nudging.

*I hate to admit it, but I think I might be getting sucked back into Gossip Girl – despite the epic Chuck/Blair moment in last week’s episode note being all that epic. I’m still a sucker for Chuck Bass though.

*One Tree Hill may be on the verge of jumping the shark with this whole Ghost-esque Clay/Quinn storyline. I can’t watch Clay wander around the hospital pining for another two episodes. On another note, Jamie is the most adorable kid ever and they need to give Brook and Julian a kid before this season is over. Anyone want to put money down now as to whether they’ll be able to get CMM to come back for the finale?

*I’m so happy I can do the Glee dance on Tuesdays again. It just makes my day better knowing that it’s Glee day.

*Modern Family is still the best comedy on TV right now. Can’t get enough Mitch and Cameron.


Season 2

*I remember how much I hate Thursday nights again. I’m STILL trying to catch up on all the premieres. Here are the cliffsnotes – Grey’s was lame and predictable; Private Practice had its moments, though still just a meh episode; Bones was better than I thought, but I still hate what they’re doing to Booth and Brennan; The Mentalist was worth watching just for the few solid Jane/Brisbon moments that were epic; The Office was actually funny again and worth watching just for the random music video ad in the first five minutes; and The Vampire Diaries still continues to be awesome this season with all the heartbreaking Damon moments…is it wrong to want to punch Elena?

*Supernatural finally premiered this  week after what felt like the longest summer break ever…and I have to say it was kind of anticlimactic. Their grandfather and creepy cousins are uber shady and something just isn’t right about Sam.  I did enjoy Bobby’s reaction to Dean showing up on his doorstep and that Lisa called Dean an idiot. The show is still crazy well-written and Jared and Jensen still have chemistry that can’t be bought. I just hope Sera Gamble and pick up the pace. On a semi-related note, I hate when they show things in the preview that don’t end up being in the actual episode.

All right, all. Have agreat week and buy the Glee version of Billionaire on iTunes. I love the new kid. If I were a twelve year old girl, he would so be my type again.

Mel’s Top Ten Anticipated 2010 TV Premieres

With the Fall television season looming before us, we figured it was only appropriate to compile a list of the premieres Sarah and I are most looking forward to. And by “compile a list” I mean two because sometimes we don’t share so well…

[Please be warned that there are possible spoilers in the following post that some spoiler-free readers may not appreciate. Read at your own risk.]

Mel’s Top Ten Anticipated 2010 TV Premieres


Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan

10. Hawaii Five-0 (Monday 10pm EST on CBS, September 20) – Two words: Alex O’Loughlin. (Picture from tvguide.com)

9. Life Unexpected (Tuesday 9pm EST on The CW, September 14) – I breathed a hefty sigh of relief when The CW renewed this little show that could for a second season and also kept One Tree Hill on the schedule for next season since the media whores had us believing we couldn’t have them both. Described as Gilmore Girls meets Juno, the show has all the heart and charm of an old school WB show. Not surprising since half the cast used to be on WB shows back in the day. I’m excited to see where they take the show next. I love Kerr Smith, and from what I’ve read he’ll be sticking around, at least for a while. The Kate/Baze pairing appears to have been back burnered for this next season. Let’s see how long that lasts…

8. Bones (Thursday 8pm EST on FOX, September 23) – Normally, this would be much higher on the list considering this is my favorite show on television right now. However, I have beef with Hart Hanson. Mr. Cryptic (read The Ausiello Files’ more apt names for him here) continues to ride the Mulder/Scully track of unrequited love and I am just about at my flux capacitor max where I will be reaching into the television to knock their heads together. Throwing the Booth/Brennan fans a romantic Hodegla shaped bone does not negate the fact that we have yet to get some solid action out of the brooding twosome. I understand the concept of dramatic tension, but much more and you won’t be able to cut it without a proverbial chain saw. And Booth goes to the desert and gets a girlfriend? Please…

Check out the Bones Season 6/Fringe Season 3 teaser.

7. Brothers & Sisters (Sunday 10pm EST on ABC, September 26) – Let’s have a moment of silence for Mr. Rob Lowe who ditched us for Parks and Rec…ok, moment’s over. Now, with Emily VanCamp and Balthazar Getty officially leaving (Wait, wasn’t he gone already?), who else is going to ride off into the sunset? As long as it isn’t Kevin or Scotty, all will be right with the world. I can’t wait to see where this season is going to take the Walker clan.

6. Fringe (Thursday 9pm EST on FOX, September 23) – Award for most “What the Hell?” moments in a season finale last year definitely went to Fringe. Between the alternate dimensions and the look alikes, how can anybody be sure of who’s who? Anyone want to start a pool for how long it will take Peter to figure out he’s pining after the wrong Olivia?

Michael C. Hall as Dexter

5. Dexter (Sunday 9pm EST on Showtime, September 26) – Aside from “OMG! OMG! They killed Rita!” I really have nothing to say about the upcoming season of Dexter other than bring on the blood!

4. Vampire Diaries (Thursday 8pm EST on The CW, September 9) –  Talented eye-candy aside, I continue to be impressed by how engaging the writing on this show is. The introduction of werewolves has me a bit worried, but as long as they steer clear of the confusing mythology detailed in the book series, they’ll be golden. What I’m most looking forward to is for Ian Somerhalder to play Damon’s reaction to Katherine being the one he kissed, not Elena. I think I just felt a chill…

And just because it could be the sexiest promo on TV

3. One Tree Hill (Tuesday 8pm EST on The CW, September 14) – While I appreciated the genius of the season finale of OTH last year, I can’t get behind the Clay and Quinn attack. It’s like nanny frickin’ Carrie all over again. I started reading the spoilers for next season and I just don’t see how they can possibly have survived that. As long as Brooke gets to stay happy for longer than two minutes and Haley doesn’t set anymore pianos on fire, they’ll be golden.

2. Sons of Anarchy (Tuesday 10pm EST on FX, September 7) – It feels like this show has been gone forever, but I still can’t stop thinking about where they can possibly for from here. Able’s been kidnapped and Gemma’s been framed for a murder a fed committed. It’s all twisted up like a pretzel and Katy Sagel still got shafted at the Emmy’s this year, the jerks.

Sam and Dean trapped in a meadow that looks suspiciously like one I've seen Bella Swan pining in...

1. Supernatural (Friday 9pm EST on The CW, September 24)– Where has this show been all my life? On a whim a few weeks ago I watched the pilot and two weeks and a lot of groggy days at work later, I made it all the way to the end. I can’t wait to see what happens next! The respect and reverence the writers give both the characters and the episodes is completely refreshing and downright awesome. You can’t really get any bigger than an apocalyptic Lucifer/Sam, Michael/Adam, Dean show down, but I have faith they’ll figure something amazing out…like a pop culture vampire satire called Live Free or Twi-Hard.

Honorable Mentions:

Glee (Tuesday 8pm EST on FOX, September 21) – Just because it’s Glee and it always makes me smile to know it’s Glee day!

Grey’s Anatomy (Thursday 9pm EST on ABC, September 23) – I don’t watch religiously, but the crazy, suspense-filled season finale has me wondering how the premiere will be picking up the pieces.

Ghost Adventures (Friday 9pm EST on Travel Channel, September 17)– What can I say? They’re hot, ghosts are scary and I find their excessive use of the word “dude” endearing.
