Ok so Michael and I bought season 1 of Mad Men and started it this past weekend. Let me start by saying please please don’t give any spoilers or anything away. I do love to go read spoilers on shows from time to time but I hate when something is spoiled when I wasn’t wanting it to be. Understand??? Ok now on to the show. We are only 4 episodes in but so far I don’t get the appeal. I guess I can say it is well acted and well written but the plot lines, so far, are extremely boring. Not to mention I simply HATE Don Drapper. I think most women think he is an attractive Man but I always just thought he was ok and now I can’t stand to look at him. Not to mention PEGGY drives me crazy (I am not going to go into why because it would be too cruel). Anyways I can’t find any character to hold on to…I like Betty right now but I have been told I won’t for long…. UGH and when I just went to find out if I got her name right I read a spoiler that I didn’t want to know – see I am annoyed now!! Mad Men fans out there tell me, am I ever going to like these characters? Is there ever going to be more interesting plot lines?

Right now I am really wishing we started watching GLEE first.

New Judges on Idol

American Idol has officially welcomed two new judges to the panel: JLo and Steven Tyler have taken the spots sitting next to Randy Jackson this coming season. I must admit I am interested to see how these two interact with the contestants and what they will bring to the show but no one will ever be able to completely fill the shoes of Simon. I am more excited to see Steven Tyler then JLo.

What do you think of the new judges?

New Bachelor???

Remember him? Yes that is the Brad Womack the bachelor who chose no one. He left DeAnna and Jenni in the cold and said he didn’t want to continue a relationship with either bachelor contestant. I actually really liked him because I felt he was one of the more REAL people on the show. It is rumored that ABC is looking to re-sign him as the next Bachelor. As most everyone knows the Bachelor franchise likes to have “familiar” people take the spotlight each season. They haven’t had a “new” bachelor/bachelorette since 2008s Bachelor Matt Grant. If you remember since then we have had Jason and Jake. ALL the Bachelorette’s have been previously rejected women: Trista, Meredith, Jenn, DeAnna, Jillian, and Ali. Apparently ABC tried really hard to get Chris L. (runner up in Ali’s season) to be the Bachelor but he declined the offer. They are also rumored to be looking at Ty from Ali’s season but I think he would be boring. I say bring back BRAD! At least he might throw some curve balls!

Why I Won't Watch DWTS

I can’t tell you the number of times people have said to me “YOU DON’T WATCH DANCING WITH THE STARS??? YOU WOULD LOVE IT!” Last night my husband and I sat down and watched the last 5 contestants perform and I am sticking with my original decision to not watch this show. I know it seems like a logical choice for me to watch. It has two of my favorite things in the title “DANCING with the STARS” – if you know me at all you know that I LOVE famous people! It is a weird obsession of mine (don’t worry I am not a stalker or anything). I love keeping up with what is going on in their lives and I have a weird pull on my heart for them (I know that is weird) but it is true! I have met several famous people over the years and it has been AWESOME and I always exercise extreme class and grace in those moments (class and grace equals, grabbing arms, screaming, taking pictures, and telling them how much I love them, right???). I also love DANCING! I am known for being the first one on the dance floor. A girl from my high school (thanks Leslie) actually made me a tape (yes a tape) of our high school dance team dances. I wasn’t on the dance team just love to watch their awesome dances. I also love SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE!

With these two things clearly in the show you would think I would love it, but I don’t. Let’s review these two things again. STARS – the people on this show are barely stars (I know if I saw them I would probably get excited) but I don’t really care about what is going on in their lives. There have been exceptions over the years because of my love of TV they have had some people on that I would be interested in (Jeannie Garth, Shannon Doherty, Audrina Patridge) but overall I don’t care about these people. The only other draw to the people on this show is Chelsie Hightower because I LOVED her on SYTYCD but it was PAINFUL to watch Michael Bolton so I don’t think I will be sad to miss that. DANCING- The dancing is MEDIOCRE at BEST! Most of the dancing was extremely painful to watch and made me appreciate the contestants on SYTYCD that much more. I don’t enjoy ballroom dancing that much to begin with and this show is ALL ballroom and not even GOOD ballroom. My two favorite styles on SYTYCD are contemporary and hip hop. I am not impressed by this show and I don’t find their contestants amusing, more desperate.

On the plus side this won’t be taking up space on my DVR.

Other shows I am interested in trying:
Mad Men
The Event

I will let you know if they get added to my DVR

Happy Fall Watching!

Fall TV is BACK!

And it has begun….

Fall TV has officially started back! I love this time of year for so many reasons, I love when the weather it starts to turn cool (not cold), I love ALABAMA football, the holiday’s are quickly approaching, and of course I love fall TV. I must say so many of the shows I watch are well past their primes: Grey’s Anatomy (for me the loss of George and Izzy was too much), One Tree Hill (this show pretty much ended after they left high school), Desperate Housewives (it feels like the same repeated story lines over and over), Private Practice (they have royally screwed up the couples on this show, I don’t know who to route for anymore), Gossip Girl (season 1 was great but it went downhill fast), and Brothers & Sisters is still hanging on but some of the story lines have been pretty icky (Justin/Rebecca). Lost was the only drama for me that fully kept my attention until the very end (but even it peaked in seasons 1-3). All that being said enter the best two new shows of last season: MODERN FAMILY and PARENTHOOD! If you aren’t watching these shows YOU SHOULD!!!! I know there are a lot of GLEE lovers out there and you have finally won my attention (I want to rent season 1) but it took me a while to have that desire. It looks like the cheesiest show on TV, almost like a High School Musical wanna be, BUT I am giving in and I will try to rent season 1.

Now let’s talk about Modern Family (Comedy) and Parenthood (extremely underrated dramedy).



  • It just won an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. (Beating out The Office, 30 Rock, and YES EVEN GLEE).
  • Also the lovable character Cameron played by Eric Stonestreet won the Emmy for best Supporting Actor in a comedy series. All the other adult actors were also nominated for Emmy's except Ed O’Neil (who should have been nominated).
  • CAST CAST CAST – the cast is wonderful and the chemistry is simply brilliant.
  • The one-liners you will now have stacked up in your vocabulary is reason enough.
  • Laughing! The main reason you should watch this show is because it will make you laugh!

Here are some great clips from the show:


  • Seriously this show is extremely unrated, under watched, and under appreciated.
  • Loosely based on a great American CLASSIC - If you haven’t seen the movie you should!
  • I love the cast (Lauren Graham - Gilmore Girls, Peter Krause – Dirty Sexy Money, Monica Potter –ConAir Patch Adams, Head Over Heels, Dax Shepard – Punk’d, Craig T. Nelson – Coach, Mae Whitman – One Fine Day) Seriously you MUST see someone on that list you love!
  • The story lines are intelligent, new, funny, and entertaining. The story lines seem simple, believable, yet are very interesting.
  • The characters draw you in immediately; you care and feel for them.
  • The amazing foundation of a family that really loves one another.
  • PERFECT TIMING – I feel each cast member has perfect timing.

Happy FALL Watching

So I have been bored with blogging lately, mainly because there isn’t much on TV. I do love the Bachelor Pad and the 2 hours of trashy TV it provides me each week but I can’t bring myself to blog about it. (I will say that I think I like Jesse K out of everyone). I can’t wait for Fall TV to start back. That being said let’s play a game.

I am going put some great quotes down and you tell me the movie it is from. I love quoting stuff so I thought this would be a great way to get ya’ll involved. I am aware I probably only have 2 readers but it at least it gives me a reason to look up fun quotes that I love!

These quotes are not the quotes the movie is known for, there won’t be straight give me’ s like … "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." It needed to be a little bit challenging. One hint the oldest movie premiered in 1987.

Comedies: (It is the most fun to quote Comedies)

1. “Your famous for you mud? How’s your Chinese food?”
2. “Simple. There's no way on earth we're going to get out of here tonight. We'd have moreluck playing pickup sticks with our butt-cheeks than we will getting a flight out of herebefore daybreak.”
3. “That's right. You better walk on. I'll hit an old man in public”
4. “John, I was first team All-State. I can put the ball anywhere I want to. I'll make it rain outhere.”
5. “We're family, we're gonna be doing lots of dumb stuff together. Wait 'til Christmas.”
6. “Bank Teller: [cashing ******'s first paycheck] Okay, so how would you like that?
******: Three dimes, a hundred dollar bill and 87 ones.”


1. “Well, it's certainly more enjoyable than my average day... reading philosophy, avoiding gang rape in the washrooms... though, it's less of a problem these days. Maybe I'm losingmy sex appeal.”
2. “Brothers, what we do in life... echoes in eternity.”
3. “Pop Quiz Hot Shot…….What do you do?”
4. Nine million terrorists in the world and I gotta kill one with feet smaller than my sister.


1. “So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me,every day.”
2. “I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn't have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, "Hey, how about... oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie... for as long as we both shall live?"
3. “When you first entered the restaurant, I thought you were handsome... and then, of course, you spoke.”


1. “ I do not see plays, because I can nap at home for free. And I don't see movies 'cause they're trash, and they got nothin' but naked people in 'em! And I don't read books, 'cause if they're any good, they're gonna make 'em into a miniseries.”
“Well, you know what they say: if you don't have anything nice to say about anybody,
come sit by me!”
“I'm not crazy, I've just been in a very bad mood 40 years!”
2. “But enough about me, let's talk about you... what do YOU think of me?”
3. "This old gypsy woman once told me that if you jump backwards nine times before the sun come up you won't be pregnant. Well, I jumped so far I had to take a bus back and then I had twins.”
4. “Dear God make me a bird so I can fly far, far far away from here.”
5. “There's not a day goes by I don't feel regret. Not because I'm in here, or because you think I should. I look back on the way I was then: a young, stupid kid who committed that terrible crime. I want to talk to him. I want to try and talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I can't. That kid's long gone and this old man is all that's left. I got to live with that. Rehabilitated? It's just a bullshit word. So you go on and stamp your form, sonny, and stop wasting my time. Because to tell you the truth, I don't give a shit.”

I have a whole list of movies to continue with but I am going to stop for now...maybe there will be a movie edition 2.

Next up TV quotes.....
