Season Premiere Week: Tuesday

The top of this desk is now so cluttered I don’t have enough space to set down my iced coffee. My only option is to hold it in my left hand and type with only my right, so forgive any typos.

On a non-Premiere Week note, I had the opportunity yesterday to see Transformers. I don’t have words to describe my love for this movie. When the Decepticon-possessed Mustang cop car took off after Bumblee in Camaro form, I was literally bouncing on the edge of my seat, yelling “OMG, this is SO AWESOME!”, at which point my children told me to calm down. This was good advice, as I have a pinched nerve or something under my right collarbone and my excitement was rather painful.


Dancing With the Stars: We didn’t watch it, so I didn’t get to watch my man Helio dance. Having 1 1/2 hour shows three nights in a row during Premiere Week is blatant manipulation they knew would piss off viewers. If they were one hour, maybe, but bleeding over into half of the 9 o’clock hour? Fuggedaboudem.

NCIS: Oh, so delicious. So many secrets, and I can’t even believe the Tony storyline. And I’ve had a serious crush on Armand Assante since…seriously, birth, I think.

I will also confess right here in public to having a huge crush on Ziva. Love her character. Favorite line—

McGee to Ziva: Since my parents raised a gentleman and yours raised a killer…

The Unit: Now sitting on the DVR with CSI: Miami because the man I inexplicably married wouldn’t DVR House. I’m kinda sad about that.

House: I love the humor in this show, and I love House’s despicable personality in a big way, but it disturbs me, too. Essentially he just tortures people until he accidentally figures out what’s wrong with them. I always want the patients to die just to be free of the man. The ransom thing cracked me up, though.

Cane: We passed. Too jammed up, with only 2 tuners in the DVR, and we don’t think this one will stick. Dynasty much? I give it four episodes.

Law & Order: SVU: DVR’d it because the husband HAD to watch some ventriloquist on the Comedy channel. Which he snored through. While I watched puppets.

I think tonight we’re going to get jammed up again. I haven’t looked yet, but I’m sure Bionic Woman, Kitchen Nightmares, and Dancing will all manage to show at the same time. I don’t even remember what else is on Wednesdays. My husband won’t let me buy another TV so I can have another DVR, therefore having FOUR channels at a time.

    Dr. Buffer cracked me up, and I was intrigued by that Olivia Wilde person. She seemed slightly evil, and that could be entertaining.

    I liked SVU, but then I almost always do, so I’m no judge. C Nixon was kinda creepy, I thought. Mostly because it was just bizarre to see her that way.

    Not sure what — if anything — I’ll watch tonight. I think the Top Chef finale is on, but if Tony Bourdain’s not judging, it may be relegated to watch-the-re-run-someday-if-I’m-bored-enough status.

    The only thing I really want to watch tonight is Private Practice. Yes, I’m a Grey’s Junkie, but I really have a big crush on Tim Daly. Taye Diggs isn’t bad to look at either. Still waiting to hear word on LOST. Not sure why. LOL That show really pisses me off.

    I won’t talk about The Unit since you didn’t see it yet. I want to rewatch the begining since I missed some because I desperately needed/wanted a shower to cool off. But, wow.

    Dr. Buffer cracked me up, too. That was a stretch, even for House. :lmao:

    Don’t watch Top Chef.

    And I never got into Grey’s Anatomy. :tomato:
