The Muppets – I think I laughed at one thing during the first episode (I’ll tell you what, later). It’s supposed to be a comedy, right? I miss the old Muppets.
The Grinder – I fell asleep through part of the first episode. Not a good sign, huh? But I like Rob Lowe, so I’ll give it another try. But if I fall asleep through the next episode… CUT!
Queens – Couldn’t even get through the first episode.
It wasn’t scary. It wasn’t funny. It was just bad.
Blindspot – The first episode wasn’t awful, but it just didn’t interest me. Then again, my husband is the one who wanted to record it in the first place, not me. I’ll probably end up watching it because he is.
Rosewood – Haven’t even watched the first episode yet. Wondering if I should, now. Hmmm…
It’s probably just as well I’m striking out. It’s not like I need to add to the long list of shows I currently watch. What do I watch? Well, here’s the list (in no particular order):
Madame Secretary; Sleepy Hollow; Masters of Sex; Rizzoli & Isles; The Big Bang Theory*; 2 Broke Girls*; Hawaii Five-O; Elementary; Mom*; NCIS: New Orleans; NCIS; Bones; Amazing Race; Survivor*; Castle; The Vampire Diaries; Arrow; Flash; Gotham**; Masters of S.H.I.E.L.D.; Agent Carter (if it comes back) and New Girl***
*Not a fan of the show, but Hubby watches it and I’m usually in the room with him (I’ve told him he can watch without me, though).
**Lost Season 1 of
the DVR (when that thing fried), but liked what we saw of the first couple of
episodes, so we’re waiting to see it on DVD (we’re like 90th on the library
wait list) and will record & save Season 2 until we can watch it.
***I’m not so sure I want to watch this show anymore.
Hmmm… Did I say I WASN’T a TV junkie? Looks like I am, doesn’t it? Most of the time the shows pile up and we watch them during the winter or spring breaks. Or my husband just likes watching particular series all at once (like Masters of Sex—we have yet to watch the first episode). When he teaches a couple of nights a week, or there’s a hockey/football/baseball game on, we get behind in a lot of our series watching.
Now for that joke from The Muppets: A female Muppet said to a male Muppet, “Did you know the band’s original name was Imagine Dragons?” He said, “That is their name.” She said, “I know. They kept it.”
For some reason it made me laugh. Too bad the rest of the show didn’t.
Last night I watched “Slap Shot” for the first time. Heck, I’d never even heard of the movie until Tuesday (and if you’ve never heard of it, it’s a crude hockey movie starring Paul Newman made back in 1977). The Penguins were playing
Tampa Bay (on TV!) in , the winning city of the Kraft
Hockeyville contest. Well, Johnstown,
War Memorial Arena is where “Slap Shot” was filmed, so of course they were
showing lots of clips from the movie. I told my daughter I wanted to see the
movie. I shouldn’t have been surprised that she owns a copy. Fun movie! Don’t
know if I would have appreciated it as much before I became a hockey fan,
though, so maybe it’s good I didn’t watch it until now. Johnstown
Still, I’m shocked I didn’t know about this Paul Newman movie. Shocked, I tell you! J
So… Do you watch any of the same shows I do? Which ones? Have you ever watched “Slap Shot”?
Have a great weekend! I think I’ll be watching some football. Go Bucks! J
