I hope everyone had a nice Christmas! Ours was great.
This blog will be a little longer than usual because I had
to play "catch up" last week!
I made myself a nice TV-theme Christmas wallpaper
slideshow. If you type any TV show's name and "Christmas
wallpaper" in Google images, then you'll see lots of great
Xmas desktops to use, for most shows. Mine had Buffy and
Angel (from "Buffy
the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel"),
Brennan and Booth (from "Bones"), Peanuts
characters, "Star Trek"
characters, Robin and Patrick (from "General
Hospital") and more.
I've been watching a lot of Lifetime holiday movies. They
have a lot of them On Demand.
I watched the new "Doctor Who" Christmas special! It was
really good. Much better than the regular season was, in
fact. I actually liked The Doctor again. It was a good
mystery and had fun in it.

I didn't watch much else today besides watch more
Lifetime holiday movies. I'm so far behind on everything
All of our regular shows are in re-runs....

We tried to find some good comedy to watch, since my
husband is off work and has more free time to watch TV. I
went to the Comedy Central On Demand section, to see if they
had any good stand-up, but nothing we found was very funny.
We're going to see Bill Maher live on New Year's -- we
always watch his show on HBO, so it'll be fun to see him
live. Hopefully it won't just be the same old jokes that he
has on his show. We saw Dennis Miller years ago and there
was quite a bit of repeat jokes from when we saw him on TV.
And that was back when he was funny! Before he became just
an old right-wing jerk who lost his sense of humor.
We ended up just listening to music on the cable channels
that play music from the 70's, 80's, etc. I only like the
oldies pop/rock stations, and the seasonal station, and the
showtunes and classical stations, but my husband also likes
the country and rap stations. Yuk. But we were both
pretty tolerant tonight and just listened to mostly the 70's

This week I plan to catch up on my reviewing new shows,
and the DVD's etc.! I caught up on a lot of other work
I watched half of this 4-part series on the Sundance
Channel called "One Child". It's really good so far! It's On
Demand so you can watch it even if you missed it before.
I also watched "The Mentalist", which I never miss. I
love that show. I'm so going to be sorry when it's gone. I
can't get enough of Simon Baker, and especially as Patrick
I notice that
Drew Carey will be hosting "The Late Late
Show" all next week, and then the ladies of "The Talk" will
be hosting it the week after that! Filling in until
they get the new host, I guess.
Every week I look at all of the talk show guests, to see
if someone who's on one of the shows we cover is appearing,
so I can put it on our pages... I have to admit that when I
see the guests for "Last Call with Carson Daly", I don't
know who most of the people are! I guess there are a lot of
musical guests...I'm too old to know them!

Tonight I watched "Major Crimes", which is always a
favorite of mine. Last week's was a lovely Christmas episode
- so much fun! I loved it. This week's was another gripping
drama. Great show!
I stayed up late updating a bunch of pages...nothing new
We have a great new volunteer, Suzan D., who sent me
transcripts that she worked hard on transcribing
(we're missing a few from the last two seasons). It'll take
me a few days to put them all up, but we're sure glad to

I enjoyed another great episode of "The Librarians". Love
it!! What a cast, too. Some of my favorite actors, like Matt
Frewer and John Larroquette. However, it does make me miss
"Warehouse 13" a lot more...
What are your new year's plans? Anyone just stay at home
and watch the music shows and other holiday fare, or do you
actually go out? We usually stay home, but we're going out
this year! I can't wait...
I don't follow the soaps regularly any more, but I catch
bits and pieces here and there while I run the
It was great seeing the new year's episode of "General
Hospital". I love Anna with this new guy, even though he
seems not to like her. She hasn't had a "new guy" in quite a
long time. It's always been Robert, Duke or Luke for a very
long time. It's about time! I have to admit that I kind of
like Duke and Lucy together, too. It was nice to see most of
the couples happy, at least for one night.
Hospital" or "Days
of Our Lives" on Thursday. Wednesday GH and
Thursday "Bold &
Beautiful" are re-runs. Everything else is new episodes!

I was busy most of the day with new year's stuff.
It was great seeing Bill Maher. He's even funnier in person
than on TV. We had very good seats, just a few rows away -
orchestra, Row D.
Later on, after midnight, I decided to treat myself to
some David Tennant and finally watch "Broadchurch". I'm a
big fan of "Gracepoint" but didn't want to watch the
original until all of "Gracepoint" had finished. It does
seem almost the same. Kind of weird! I do love Tennant a
lot, though, and I'd watch him in almost anything. No Nick
Nolte or Anna Gunn, though....that's too bad.
Happy New Year!

Some of my favorite shows are returning this coming week,
like "The Good Wife" and "Gotham"!
I'm also really looking forward to "Galavant", although I'm
disappointed that it's only 4 episodes. I hope it's really
successful and they then decide to make it into a regular
series. I've loved the promos I've seen so far. It's a
musical; it's set in medieval or fairy-tale-like times; it
stars Timothy Odmundsen; it has John Stamos and Ricky
Gervais. What's not to love? Plus it looks funny.
I've been proofreading these Season 10 "Smallville"
still... So it's weird when I turn on "The
Young & The Restless" and see Justin Hartley! Hey,
what's Oliver Queen doing on Y&R? :) Of course in one way
he'll always be Fox to me (from "Passions").
And yes, sorry, Stephen Amell, I love ya on "Arrow",
but Justin Hartley's the real Oliver... I really miss "Smallville"
and Tom Welling. I'm going to have to check out his movie
"Draft Day" and the upcoming "The Choice".
Well, after typing that, I thought, "Hmm, I wonder what
else Tom Welling and the other Smallville actors are up to?"
So I ended up finding lots of info and updating our
Smallville Appearances Page! Two hours later...LOL!
