It's Sad to See You Go

So it's been a while since I posted a new story and in this time several shows have been axed 3 of which I watched every week, so let's break it down in this short post.

1. Eastwick - show about 3 witches in a small New England town.  Ok there was already a great show about 3 sister witches in a big city a few years back, a little show called was great, of course on the little WB that could (all the good shows were on the WB when it was just the WB and not the CW, CW lacks in several areas but we'll save that for another day)  The show got axed mid-production so it probably won't wrap up any story lines which bugs the crap out of me.  I want to know the link to Darryl VanHorne and Sebastian Heart and what he has to do with the 3 witches from the past and the new witches.  Plus who doesn't love Lindsay Price and Rebecca Romaine?

2. Trauma - as can be seen in an earlier post i had high praise for Trauma, and still do.  Maybe if NBC didn't have ratings killers like Jay Leno on then shows like this could have a chance to live out a full season.  I still think the characters are better developed and have more potential than any other new medical drama but hey i don't get to choose what goes on the air.  All I have to say is somehow Mercy is still on the air and that show is flat out horrible!

3. Dollhouse - and finally the one that really grinds my gears...this Joss Whedon (God of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame) sci-fi show on FOX is great.  I agree with some of the critics out there who felt that it started off as a show where each episode had a new client and then trouble ensues but the point was to get across how the dollhouse functioned and to see the inter-workings of that particular house in LA.  Cut to this season (especially after the announcement of cancellation) and you get one of the best suspense sci-fi thriller shows on TV.  You never know what is going to happen next and the unraveling of the Rossum Corp. has been dramatic to say the least and very interesting.  Hard to believe there are only a few episodes left for good...I blame FOX for this one.  It's like they weren't even trying to get people to watch it.  They never advertise for the show, they put it on Friday night at 9pm (at least last year it was led in by The Sarah Conner Chronicles) following a comedy program you can't lead into a sci-fi drama with a comedy (especially the stupid one that actually did lead into it).

A few other shows have been canceled already including Ashton Kutcher's CW show The Beautiful Life:TBL (like no one saw that coming) and ABC's Hank starting Kelsey Grammar, but the 3 above will be missed the most.

See you in the New Year everyone

P.S. to those of you wondering, I finished watching Twin Peaks and let me just say this...what a strange show!

Something to hold all you Lost fans over to Feb 2, 2010 here is a Spanish promo made by the station Cuatro for the show that creator Carlton Cuse dubbed the best promo for Lost he's ever seen

Coconut Milk and Sunless Tanner

Did anyone watch "Accidentally on Purpose" last night? (or on your DVR later since i'm sure you were all watching Favre beat the Pack to make him the only QB to have beaten all 32 teams in the NFL).  Well if you didn't go find it online cause the show as gotten better.  Apparently sunless tanner can be removed with coconut milk as Zack learns from a pharmacist after he accidently grabs sunless tanner instead of lotion when he tires to "ride the alone train".  HAHA! Then then must take a bath in coconut milk to remove the orange coloring! Hilarious...oh and of course he took the milk from his restaurant (60 gallons!) and then says he plans on returning it so they'll never notice it's missing...

no clip yet but hopefully one will become available on youtube later

FlashForward will take over for LOST next year

To all of you looking for a show to fill the void that LOST will leave at the end of this television season, I have found the answer to that void....FlashForward!  This show is amazing and has a lot of the WHAT? factor that LOST gives you.  It has been on for 2 weeks now and it is very interesting and leaves you wondering what is going on and gives you more questions to answer each week.  Genius!  Great show everyone should watch the first 2 episodes online if you have not yet watched and get yourself hooked!
here's a clip

Boom Goes the Dynamite: Trama is NBC's big hit this fall

Thank God for DVR and Hulu or I would never be able to watch all the shows i watch (networks and ratings need to take better account of all the people out there who watch shows online and after the fact on DVR so if a good show doesn't make big numbers cause say there's a ton of good shows on the same night, then it won't get canned!)  I digress, Trama started off with a great helicopter crash which takes place a year earlier to set the emotions for the rest of the cast (great idea).  The cast is likeable and the explosions are realistic enough (for CGI).  This medical show has much more depth than say NBCs other new medical set show Mercy, I watched the premier of Mercy last week and it was not nearly as good as I'd hoped it would be but I'll give it another week to prove me wrong.  However, I think Trama is a nice replacement for the loss of ER (NBCs most memorable medical show).  Plus I love most shows set in San Francisco, it's just a great backdrop for wide shots and intros and filler.  If you have yet to watch Trauma or you watch Two and a Half Men, or Gossip Girl, or Lie to Me at 9 on Monday i don't blame you those are all GREAT shows, but check out Trauma on or set your DVR next week to tape it, it's got the chops to make it if it can get the ratings...

I don't know much, but i know...this is a creepy commercial!

This is one of the strangest commercials I have ever seen...the part where the creepy lumberjack guy stares down the camera gets me every time.  Not only that but the Chinese guy with his fake tear running down his eye.  Why is he crying? Did he lose his job because of the economy?  Is GE going under? I mean it's possible.  I've been out of town but I was watching Sunday Night Football when this spot came on and I had to post something on it because it's been bothering me for a while now..
Watch below if you've never seen it.

All the Single Football Players?!?

If you did not see last night's episode of Glee you missed one of the funnest hours of television! This show gets better every week.  From the moment you see Kurt rehearsing the Single Ladies video in his room with 2 female backup dancers you know you're in for a ride.  Non-stop laughter, that's the best way to describe this new hit show on Fox.  And Fox did it right from the start...airing the pilot episode of Glee during season finale time in May, GENIUS!  Get people talking about the show all summer and see what their reaction is to a show will help you judge how it will do in the fall.  As someone who works for an NBC affiliate I can tell you, i think this is a great premise and other networks should rip this page out of their book.  But as far as last night's episode of Glee is concerned.  Quinn in preggers, which coming from the president of the chastity club is hilarious.  Not to mention the fact of the story she tells Finn to convince him he's the father even though they've never had sex (but apparently she has had sex with Puck...geez what a slut.  i mean getting drunk on wine coolers and sleeping with your boyfriend's friend).  How will anyone believe that hot tub story she tells Finn?  Anyway, Sue is great as usual (Jane Lynch is a genius comedy performer) and Rachel quits Glee club, oh yeah and Kurt is gay...who didn't know this? but i'll leave you with the two funniest clips from last night...

Twin Peaks

I've discovered that the Crime and Investigation Network (i love these random cable channels) is airing Twin Peaks. I've heard good things about this early 90's show so I thought i'd give it a try. So far i've seen about 6 episodes and it's very weird to say the least. The entire premise is "Who Killed Laura Palmer". That's basically what the entire series purpose is to figure out the answer to this question. There are some very strange things about the people who live in the town of Twin Peaks that adds a sense of "WHAT?" to the show - like the log laddy whose log (literally a log) talks to her, or Laura Palmer's mother who has strange visions and Agent Cooper's meaningful dreams. It seems like an ordinary Whodunit type of show only instead of solving a weekly crime it's one crime the entire series (and the movie that was made as a prequel). I think the series is also avalaible to watch at so if you're a TV nerd (espcially one who likes Sci-Fi) you will like this show. I can't say the end will justify the means since i have yet to watch the entire series but I will get back to you on that at a later date.

What are you watching new or re-runs?
