Sorry, I’ve been LOST

February 4, 2010

Basically I’ve been a bad blogger. I have no good excuse.

Well, I have a good excuse for last night. Last night I meant to blog before LOST, but I got so caught up in the LOST anticipation, then the 3 hours of LOST on TV while simultaneously talking with Laura about what was happening on LOST, then the post-LOST euphoria that I just couldn’t squeeze in the blogging.

It went a little something like this:

Laura: 3 MINUTES
Me: ahhhhhhhhhhhh! man, you have noooo idea how insane this is going to be. the stuff i read was crazy
Laura: do not say a thing. or I will hate you forever

Let’s pause here. First of all, yes, we chat about shows we’re watching at the same time from separate, far away states in different time zones.

And yes, I read spoilers. I read spoilers like it’s my job. I’m the person who asks you what the ending of the movie is before we watch it and if you won’t tell me, I’ll look on IMDB. I read the ends of books before the beginnings. Yes, it’s a problem. I JUST LIKE TO KNOW!

Laura doesn’t like to know. Thus, I have to be careful. Because otherwise she won’t be my friend AND she’ll hate me forever. She’s so serious too. This is the girl who wouldn’t answer the phone the day I finished Harry Potter 7 and instead made her boyfriend answer and tell me that she couldn’t talk because she was afraid I would tell her pivotal details.

She should have gotten up early, picked up her reserved copy of the book, and finished it in a few hours like me. Problem solved.

I digress.

I don’t know if you have ever seen LOST, but basically it’s a show full of confusion and stuff you never saw coming, and even if you read the spoilers you’re like HOLY CRAP! WHAT JUST HAPPENED? WHY? WHAT IS GOING ON?!

And no one knows what’s going on. It’s like willingly being high while in a maze while eating ice cream. You’re dazed, you’re confused, you don’t know what’s happening, BUT IT’S SO TASTY.

Examples:

Laura: Im already confused
Me: this is insanity

****

Me: man you are so lucky i keep refraining from telling you the things i know
Laura: HATE FOREVER. BE STRONG
Me: i am, i am

****

Laura: WEIRDNESS!
Me: that is CRAZY
Me: holy shitttttt. holy mother effing shit
Laura: WHO THE HELL IS THAt?

****

Laura: WHY IS EVERYONE DYING 😦

****

So, that’s basically what will happen if you watch LOST. YOUR BRAIN WILL EXPLODE. And you’ll like it.

(And you won’t be able to blog).

I Love TV Part 1

October 7, 2009

Basically, if we’ve ever met for probably even just 5 minutes, you know that I love television. I love it. In college, I couldn’t do homework WITHOUT the television on. However, I find both silence and music to be distracting. Weird, I know. It probably says really horrible things about my consumption of media (right, Sarah?).

Every new TV season I get really excited because so many shows seem amazing and then it turns out that most of them suck. But, this season, primetime TV is awesome. Super awesome. So awesome that I can’t contain myself and therefore have to share all my findings. Consider me a television investigator and you get to reap the rewards.

To begin, all my favorite shows are back and are still so good that I still favorite them. These are television gold that everyone should look into for their own benefit. Ask Sarah, she’s now addicted to NCIS.

Favorites: NCIS, Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, So You Think You Can Dance, and 30 Rock, whenever it returns. (And, just to make it clear, LOST. But, it’s on hiatus).

Unfortunately, other shows that I used to favorite, have had to take a backseat.

Favorite shows I have given up: America’s Next Top Model, Project Runway, Fringe. (Though, as I write this I’m watching a Project Runway marathon of all the new episodes and I plan on catching up on Fringe later because Shlee told me to… so… this list is really just shows I only make time for when I feel like it).

So, with that established, I present you with

“Awesome New Television: Part 1.”

Eastwick: I’d be surprised if this went beyond 3 seasons. It’s sort of a throwback to Charmed (classic), but a little more weird and a little more funny. Either way, the cast is awesome and my interest has been piqued. The plot is sort of odd (I mean, they’re witches), but it takes place in a cute small town a la Gilmore Girls, and there is mystery and laughter. However, I usually watch it on Hulu instead of when it’s on TV. (Wednesdays, 10pm, ABC).

Cougar Town: Heyyy, funniest new show on TV. That is, if you like sort of over-the-top humor mixed in with adult/inappropriate humor. I do. And, it has COURTNEY COX (Hallelujah)! Reason enough to watch. Plus, everyone else on the show is funny too. Fo realz. Unfortunately, it conflicts with Glee so I have to watch it on Hulu. Sorry, Courtney, but I love singing/dancing combos. But, I’m glad you’re finally on a show that won’t be canceled. (Wednesdays, 9:30pm, ABC).

Glee: I’ll be honest, I genuinely dislike one of the subplots of this show. Fortunately, it is overshadowed by the amazing talent of the largely unknown cast (except Jane Lynch, whom I know and love). Already featuring awesome guest stars like KRISTEN CHENOWETH, Glee is a powerhouse of singing and dancing and I love it. Then I love it some more when I download all the songs on iTunes and listen to them on repeat while I run. Anyway, my Dad would probably hate this show, but people who like singing/dancing/drama will enjoy it. And anyone who enjoys the gays. (Wednesdays, 9:00pm, FOX).

Note: All these shows are on Wednesdays. Clearly Wednesday is a great night for TV.

Consider this a gift from me to you. Stay tuned for “Awesome New Television: Part 2.”
