So much for my weekly re-caps. How bout every 2 weeks? That’s still good, right?! I have lots to catch up on so here are a few shows you may have skipped on the DVR.
1. CHUCK –
Love this show! For all you folks who love spy stuff and computer geeks, this show is for you! Chuck, a normal guy who works for a computer geek squad ends up becoming a CIA intersect. Basically, he sees a computer full of CIA stuff and it becomes part of his memories. He then is trained by CIA agents to use the information in his head to help them get the bad guys. Chuck is on NBC on Monday nights. The characters are smart and the comedy is witty! I never miss an episode 🙂
2. MODERN FAMILY
This show is hilarious! Ed O’Neil (Al Bundy) plays the patriarch of the family. He has two grown children who have their own families. These characters are ridiculous. One of my favorites is Phil. He’s one of the son in laws. He tries to be cool but always fails. My favorite episode was one where he had a kidney stone and pain and torment that caused him. Knowing that pain first hand made watching it super funny! If you haven’t caught this show yet, check it out at www.hulu.com or on ABC on Wednesday nights.
3. THE BACHELOR –
Ok, I didn’t want to keep talking about the Bachelor, but come on, it’s been absurd. The girls are by far the strangest group of women ever on this show. I kind of feel sorry for all of them. Jake seems to be holding it together, but everything has to be so dramatic with the girls. I would have never picked the last four women. The only one I liked from the beginning was Ali . However, Gia has grown on me with her sweet and quiet personality and Tenley is also being portrayed as the nice girl. She’s been divorced and that seems to be the only blur on her image. Maybe Jake can heal her heart. (Insert cheesy sigh here). Now for Vienna. What’s the adage, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all? Well, she’s crazy and dramatic and all over Jake, but it’s boosting the ratings. The producers must love her for that! I don’t get why Jake likes her, but to each his own. They had hometown dates tonight and I won’t spoil it for those of you who have it DVR’d to watch later. But let’s just say there is an abundance of tears and furrowed brows.
4. SNL – Ashton Kutcher
I’m a fan of Ashton. He’s usually clever and funny in his movies. Also, I’m a fan of SNL, but the last year or so it has really been lacking in the funny. The only characters that get good grades from me are Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig. They usually come up with one or two really funny skits. This weekend’s offering of comedy fell a bit short. There were one or two funny bits: Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen as Garth and Kat singing on Weekend Update was one of the funniest things. They kept making each other laugh, which I think is awesome!!
Well, friends. That’s about all I have for now. I’m not feeling super witty this week so I apologize for the lack of creativity. Perhaps it’s the lack of vitamin D since we haven’t seen the sun much this year. Also don’t forget to post your own reviews or comments if you have them! Have a great week!
