You know how I said I was tired?
So let's talk TV. I can do TV. Last night I watched that new show Dirty Sexy Money. I think I'm going to like this one, despite the addition of Billy Baldwin to the cast. There is something that irritates me about the Baldwin brothers. Alex doesn't bother me that much, but the rest of them? Ugh. As a member of a large ensemble cast including Donald Sutherland and Jill Clayburgh and starring the absolutely wonderful Peter Krause, Baldwin won't drive me away. This show reminded me a lot of the early days of Desperate Housewives, funny, sexy and more than a bit absurd. I hope it can remain as amusing as the pilot.
I'm also watching the new Gorden Ramsey show Kitchen Nightmares. It shows yet another side of Ramsey, helping owners with failing restaurants to revitalize their business with changes in decor, menu, and especially employee problems. This week's restaurant was so filthy and disgusting it make me literally sick to watch. Vermin, roaches, rotten food. I swear, eating out is more dangerous than crossing the highway on foot.
The rest of my TV viewing are return shows. I'm into Ugly Betty since I watched the marathon at the hospital. It's really an innovative and interesting, although completely implausable show. But quite enjoyable, overall. I like Betty, but I like the other cast members just as much.
I watched the premier of House and, as usually, was hooked. There is something about that show that I find riveting in it's absurdity. It isn't the medicine, it's House himself. He's a character that, although unbelievable, is so curious to watch, and so freaking funny. His use of sarcasm is perfect.
Have you been watching Ken Burn's new series on PBS, War? It is spectacular. Amazing. Inspiring, Awesome. Ken Burns has never done a bad series. He's a genius at combining dialog, historical significance, music and still photos to create a living memorial to his subject. But this is his best series to date, even better than the Civil War. If you haven't seen it yet, try to catch a few episodes. It's must see TV.
Otherwise, nothing much on the fall schedule that interests me. What are you watching? Stumble It! JBlog Me
