Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy, The Office... ohmigosh, I can't wait to see all my "friends" return to my TV tonight :)

But I will have to DVR them for now as I already have a date for this evening.

Speaking of SYTYCD, I am really happy to see Lacey Schwimmer dancing on TV again. She's so fun to watch!

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Mad Men

After hearing a lot of buzz on FX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, I finally decided to check it out and DVR a couple of episodes. I've only seen one episode so far, "Mac & Dennis: Manhunters".

Wow. Whoever is behind this show is one sick bunch. Seriously! I mean, it's kind of funny, but kind of gross! I actually was in shock by how much these guys get away with. This particular episode dealt with cannibalism and tea-bagging (and I also learned about a new Gorilla thing that I totally didn't need to know about!)

I might check it out again... but I'm not sure if I'm cool enough to really embrace the sick wackiness of it all.

Over the weekend, I also finally caught up with this season of Mad Men. Love that show! I was so excited to see them win the Emmy for best drama series. It's a slick show and very fun to watch. I'm so grateful to not be a working woman in that era but it's still interesting to see how business places worked back then.

I heart Chuck and Blair

My friend PH and I were recently discussing one of our fave shows, Gossip Girl, and our love for Chuck and Blair. Seriously, this couple is awesome - I really believe this is/will be a legendary couple in TV land. Their tortured love / hate relationship is so fun to watch!

Welcome back, Gossip Girl! XOXO

Thoughts on 90210

Yes - I'll admit it, I had to watch the premiere of 90210.

Oops - I meant this version:

The premiere was TWO hours long and I watched ALL of it. They got me with that Entertainment Weekly cover story. Overall, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be... though, I'm not sure I'll add it to my DVR list.

Some random comments:

  • I do like the little tie-ins to the original show (besides the obvious Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty thing), like news girl "Hannah Zuckerman", Kelly's sister "Erin Silver", etc
  • It's nice to see Jennie Garth back on TV... even if she isn't ballroom dancing! (She's much better without Amanda Bynes, as well) She looks great, too, doesn't she?
  • The new "Brenda Walsh" girl (Annie) is way too skinny... and I think her teeth are too big, too. I'm just sayin'! Although she totally looks like she could be related to Lori Loughlin

  • Ethan is not enough of a dreamboat to be dating the "It Girl" - actually, there's no dreamboat on this show at all! Where is the Dylan McKay of the new generation?
  • "It Girl", Naomi, looks wicked old - she's supposed to be 16? OK. She also kind of looks dated, like she's from the 80's or something.

  • I think they try too hard to be over-the-top... I think it's ridiculous that a girl would, um, you know! in the school parking lot with all her classmates walking around nearby plus the drug stuff plus Lori Loughlin's suggestion to Naomi's mom that they exchange stories about her husband's man stuff, etc
  • Totally don't care about the story line with the druggie actress
  • A reunion of Nat, Brenda, Kelly - wowsa! Didn't even notice the tension between Shannen and Jennie
  • I actually like Dixon as the adopted member of the Walsh-like family - it's kinda cute
  • Are there really high schools with principals as handsome as Rob Estes?

That's all I got. Did anyone else catch it?

On a related note, I missed the premiere of Gossip Girl! I'll catch the repeat this weekend...

Jedi Training

One of the cutest things I've seen - Jedi training at Disneyland.

The Hills on TV Guide

I was so mad at TV Guide when I saw this at the grocery today:

But then I saw there was also a matching cover:

But still - Heidi and Spencer on a cover? Bleh.
