Things I Love Tuesday

Every girl has their favorite bra, right? For day-to-day comfort, I am currently loving the Victoria's Secret Perfect One Full Coverage Bra.

Since it's the summer, I wear a lot of T-shirts and this is the perfect T-shirt bra. Well, it is at least a lot better than what I used to wear. I can't stand when you can see the bra lines (you know, the outside of the cup) when you wear a T-shirt and this bra does a good job of hiding them. Probably because it's full coverage. The bra is comfortable, too. I dig it.

What is your favorite bra?

P.S. Next week I think I'll change it up. I think TV Tuesday and Things I Love Thursday sounds better, right?

Flashback Friday: Tron

I don't really remember the old Tron movie from the 80's but apparently there's a new Tron coming out this year (thanks Comic Con news!). And apparently it stars a hot young actor, Garrett Hedlund. The only reason I know him is because he is just getting ready to film On the Road with girl crush Kristen Stewart. OK, now I'm paying attention.

I checked out some clips and it looks pretty cool! I also looked up clips from the original to see if it would ring a bell, but it didn't. I did get a good laugh at how much movie animation has improved in the last twenty years.

TV Thursday: Covert Affairs

It's summer hiatus for a lot of the big network shows, but never fear - I can always find some good TV! Thank goodness for cable TV...

I tried out a new show this week, Covert Affairs (10PM, Tues, USA Network). It premiered last week but I didn't pay much attention to it until I saw a bunch of buzz about it on Twitter.

It stars the adorable Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly, anyone?) as a fresh-out-of-training (i.e. the "farm") CIA operative. I would say she's undercover... but are all CIA peeps undercover? Eh, whatever.

Anyway, yeah, it sounds like Alias, but not really. She doesn't have all those crazy disguises like good ole Sydney, although she did have to play a DC call girl for a bit.

The show has some other familiar faces, such as Chris Gorham (or to me, Henry from Ugly Betty) who plays her guide of some sort (and buddy) at the CIA. A blind guide, ironically. There's also the big boss man played by Peter Gallagher (who to me, will always be the ballet director from Center Stage).

So there is some action, some fight scenes... I would almost consider it a poor man's Alias. But I do find Piper very likable so there is that.

Oh and there is this also underlying story line about a brief romance that Piper's character had two years ago. The dude just abruptly left her with no explanation and left her broken hearted. At the end of the pilot, we learn he may possibly be another CIA operative that disappeared long ago but reappeared once Piper's character joined the CIA. He even saved her from being choked to death by the bad guy villain in the pilot - and then of course disappeared immediately afterward. I personally think they could have picked a more handsome fella for this love interest, but that's just me.

Anyway... I'm not completely sold on this show, although I did add it to my DVR. I worry that they may try too hard to create these complex story lines which is how my beloved Alias ultimately lost me. I'm already struggling to remember their TLA (three letter acronym) department names.

On a separate note, The Closer is back! Love that show :)
