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!

Week in Review – 9/4/2010

Okay, so I’m cutting it a little close, but I did post two things in one day so that has to count for something, right? I actually don’t have a whole lot to say this week because not a whole lot has happened, but let me see what I can muster…

*Dancing with the Stars should rename itself Dancing with the Reality Stars since that seems to be half the new cast anyway. And to quote the great Joan Rivers “Bristol Palin’s going to be on DWTS with the guy from Jersey Shore? Perfect! The Situation will be competing against The Embarrassment.” I’ll watch a little bit just to see Jennifer Grey and Margaret Cho. Nobody puts Baby in the corner!

*So excited for White Collar next week. I loved how they cut this week’s eppie right before they opened the music box. Suspense is great and all but WHAT’S IN THE DAMN BOX?

Preview for the White Collar summer finale airing September 7th

*Weird freckle faced little boy is still playing Young Shawn on Psych. Where is my Liam?

*Emmy’s = LAME, what a let down. The only highlights of the night were Ricky Gervais‘ waiter trying to hand Matthew Perry, an alcoholic, a beer and Eric Stonestreet winning Supporting Actor. Everything else was just predictable…HBO wins, Mad Men wins, Bryan Cranston wins, Jewell is still lame…shall I continue?

*ATWT has official lost my respect and my viewership with the impending death of Doctor Reid Oliver. The Young and the Restless and I are now exclusive – especially now that half the cast of As the World Turns and Guiding Light are now on Y&R anyway. Holla for the upcoming entrance of Paul Leydon. Soap operas can never have too many Australians.

*Maroon 5’s new album Hands All Over is up for Pre-order on iTunes. The Lady Antebellum collaboration alone is worth the money. Also, my beloved Gin Blossoms also have a new album on the horizon. I need to stop iTunes stalking before I go broke.

Ok, so apparently there were interesting things that happened this week. Not to steal Sarah’s thunder, but since she’s gone this weekend anyway, I don’t think she’ll mind, but I need to Sons of Anarchy, which premieres next week on FX. Despite Charlie Hunnam’s unfounded whining about Kurt Sutter’s tight lipped story methods, Katy Sagel will be brilliant as always and Charlie Hunnam is still a damn good actor despite his unfortunate need to bite the hand that feeds him.
