I was home tonight trying to find something good to watch on TV, which took awhile, because summer programming is brutal. What happened to dynamic summer series? Remember when Nip/Tuck was on in the summer? Those were the days. At any rate, as I was flipping through the channels I had an epiphany. Several actually. And because I'm bored and have a vehicle to share these thoughts with you, please read on...
1) What's up with AWFUL American talent competitions? I can barely tolerate American Idol. But So You Think You Can Dance? America's Got Talent? America's Next Big Thing? Seriously people, I feel comfortable saying there is NO talent left in America. Let's move on.
2) Law and Order Criminal Intent is mIIII-serable. To say I'm obsessed with Law & Order SVU would be putting it mildly. However, that deep love does not extend to Criminal Intent, which features the daughter from "What About Bob" all grown up, some dude who sounds blown out all the time and was once in a movie with Vince Vaughan, and Angela Bassett's husband. This show is so bad they pulled it from NBC - unfortunately this means it is cluttering up USA now and cutting into my SVU rerun time.
3) Is that Lauren Holly commercial for March of Dimes Walk America running anywhere else? It looks like it was shot as part of a high school film project and Holly looks like she's been hit in the face with a sack of nickels. Remember how cute she was in "Dumb & Dumber"? I hope it's just the lighting doing her wrong.
4) I finally settled on watching I Love The 90s: 1998. WAIT - 1998?!?!?!!!111!! Are you kidding me? I, like, REMEMBER 1998! Those shows are supposed to feature stuff I can vaguely recall, like Terminator I or Shrinky Dinks not Dawson's Creek, Frasier and Jay & Silent Bob. In addition, Aaron Karo has been added as one of the random ass talking heads. Wasn't he the dude who authored the Ruminations on College Life email digest? How the HELL did he get famous? Maybe there is hope for me. Check out I Love The 20s: 2022, where the Catch Up Lady will be prominently featured.
Ahhh, I feel better venting. Just a little over 2 months until fall premiers. I can almost taste How I Met Your Mother Season 3! I'm going to read a book.
