I was watching "General Hospital" from December, when
Sonny was getting beat up in prison. They showed bruising on
his face right away. Um, bruises take a little while to
form...his face was all purple. LOL!
If you're a fan of the old soap "Guiding Light," you
might remember Beth, played by Beth Chamberlin. She has a
new fitness career.
Check out her video!
I don't watch "Young & The Restless" any more, but I saw
part of yesterday's episode where Adam (Justin Hartley) and
Chelsea were going at it, and it was great to see him
ripping his clothes off! I miss seeing him, when he was on
Rest of the week!
I haven't been very good about keeping up on the blog
this week. I'm just always so busy, I put it off. Tsk tsk!
This week's Primetime News and Schedule is
will be here! Check it out. I have great help now with
Angie, so I had some extra time to put in more video clips.
The Daytime Emmys are supposed to be airing tonight, but
on a channel
called POPTV. Most people haven't heard of it. It's a new
name for the TV Guide Channel. It's owned by CBS.
Unfortunately, those of us on Time Warner Cable don't get
that channel. They do show some of their regular shows and
movies On Demand, but TWC tells me that they don't usually
put live events On Demand. Well, that sucks. Hopefully
someone will put a good copy of it up YouTube,
like I did last year when they only streamed it online,
or maybe it will be available on Torrents. As soon as I find
it, I'll let you all know! Meanwhile, you can check out our
daytime pages for
news about who won!
Entertainment Weekly made a boo boo (not that I'm
surprised). Their latest issue made a lame joke about Alex
Trebek hosting the Daytime Emmys. Oops, he hosted the
non-aired craft awards, not the Daytime Emmys. That's being
hosted by Tyra Banks.
been recording "Days
of Our Lives" for a friend. I don't usually watch it,
but I caught some of the scenes where John is finding out
that Paul is his son. I used to watch the show, and John and
Marlena were my favorite couple. That new Will (Guy
Wilson) is terrible. Sorry, but he can't act. He's cute (but
not as cute or charismatic as the previous Will) but man,
he's awful. Almost reminds me of Austin Peck, who was one of
the worst over-actors I've ever seen on soaps. This guy made
William Shatner seem subtle. However, he did improve
some, especially when he was on "As
the World Turns" and then "One
Life to Live." My guess is that the TV directors
on these shows have a huge impact on the acting, much more
than we viewers know (particular novie actors). I think on
DOOL they encourage them to over-act. Wilson is not
the only one chewing up the scenery on there. Let's
hope he gets the chance to improve one day, like Peck did,
and like Brandon Routh did (he used to play Seth on OLTL,
and now he's on "Arrow"
Don't forget to visit all of our DOOL pages because our
volunteers Michele & Cheryl, as well as others, do a great
job of adding new content to them all of the time!
Also, they seem to be dressing Kristen like Cruella DeVil
someone else besides me notice how much the actress who
played her on "Once
Upon a Time" looked like
Eileen Davidson? LOL!
I've been trying to make more room on my DVR because it's
really been getting full. I have GH going back to December
still, so I'm watching that whenever I can, but I don't
really enjoy the show that much, so it's hard to keep
watching it. I just like the actors and I've watched the
show off and on since 1984, so it's hard to completely give
it up. I mean, I gave up all the other soaps, easily, but
with GH it's hard, even though I don't like the way they
write it (and really haven't liked it since sometime in the
90's). It's better, in some ways, than it was 10 years ago,
but not enough. Still too many criminals, and not just
mobsters and criminals but they never pay for their crimes,
even murder. I don't mind Sonny and Jason, but there are
just too many on there now, and then they make the "regular"
people into criminals as well, lots of times. It's not
ENTIRELY a moral objection. I find it to be very unrealistic
and inconsistent. I don't mind a little fantasy, but it
shouldn't be laughable and ridiculous. I love seeing Anna,
but I hate how they've ruined her, and Duke, and their
relationship. Well, enough ranting.
Anyway, I also have most of this season's "The 100" on my
DVR, and also "Arrow".
Other than that, it's a just a few stray specials that I
want to move to DVD.
still waiting to find out if "Constantine" will be canceled
or not. The showrunner, Daniel Cerone, is finding out on
Monday. It probably will be canceled, so I don't have much
hope left. It's a very enjoyable show, but I think it was
too dark and quirky for network TV, and the characters are
not "likable" for the mainstream. I'm frankly surprised that
"Grimm" has lasted as long as it has.
I always love watching "The Good Wife." It's a shame that
Alicia had to resign as state's attorney, and it's also a
shame that Kalinda is leaving the show... I'm glad she's not
very sad that "Mad
Men" is almost over, too. It's such a good show. Even
when it's not that good, it's always interesting and
entertaining. It's hard to know who I'll miss most on the
show because I love all of the characters. Roger is always
the funniest. Don is kind of a twisted hero. All of
the characters are just so damaged. Peggy is a weird type of
heroine. Pete has good intentions but always says and does
the wrong things.
There's this fun new show on Yahoo called "Other
Space". It's a scifi comedy and pretty well done. Check
it out. You can binge-watch on there like on Netflix. It's
written by the same guy who wrote "Freaks and Geeks" and
"Bridesmaids." If you liked "Quark" or "Red
Dwarf," you'll like this.
still watching and enjoying "Younger" on TVLAND. It has a
lot to say about how women are treated, especially older
women. The characters are fun and it's a nice, fun, light
show. I'm sure anyone would enjoy it, but especially women
over 40. I'm still not buying that 40-year-old Sutton Foster
can pass as a 20-something woman, but other than that, it's
a good show.
The new CW show "The Messengers" is pretty intriguing. In
the second episode, they explained why the "angels" are
there, but I'm sure it's more than it seems.
are a lot of great shows on TV, but "Once
Upon a Time" is still my favorite. It's just always so
good. Sometimes there are little plot points that I have
problems with, but in general it's really good. Like this
week's episode made me wonder, how did Lily know that Emma
was out of Storybrook and looking for her? If she didn't
know, how would she have been able to get into Storybrook?
The timing was just a little too pat.
I've also been enjoying having "The
Flash" and "Gotham"
back. Now if I can just catch up on "Arrow!"
Don't forget to check out our
page because it tells you all of the new stuff we put up!
Next week is the season finale of "Backstrom," and I hope
it gets renewed, too! I love that show.
We've all been so busy lately on the site. Since ABC and
NBC changed the way they do the closed captioning on their
daytime shows, we have to do extensive editing on GH and
DOOL. Gisele has been editing GH, since she watches it
regularly anyway, but it's still a ton of work. We're trying
to get someone to help us with editing DOOL, but it's
difficult. I posted a lot around the net for help, and we've
gotten some new volunteers, but so far, not someone to help
us with editing DOOL.
Still, it's good that we have new volunteers! We need all
the help we can get. Willy is going to write Y&R fan
fiction for us. That should be up soon. Laurie is
proofreading some older transcripts. Stay tuned for new
announcements for other people.
Every month I choose two winners for our
Sometimes I don't get around to it until later... I just
chose March's winners, and now I'll be choosing April's. The
prizes do get sent out, either way, but sometimes it takes
me awhile. Don't forget to enter the May drawing starting
been putting our newer design on the rest of our
Daytime pages. I did
and "Loving and the
City". Next is "Guiding
Light." After I finish with the daytime section, I'm
going to take a break from putting on the new design and
create a bunch of new pages for other current primetime
shows like "The Good Wife," "Empire," and "Daredevil." Then
I can start building up all of the pages and put the new
design on our other
pages. Then all I'll have to do after that is keep pages
updated and write more stuff, add more great content, and
build new pages for shows as they come along That's the
This week I get to talk with the "Family
Guy" Executive Producers Steve
Callaghan & Richard Appel. They're having this
about the upcoming 250th episode. I hope it's a good one!
Last week's was pretty good. It's always been a hit-or-miss
show... but when it's funny, it's hilarious!
The big thing on Twitter this week, that all of Hollywood
was talking about, was the Bruce Jenner interview with Diane
Sawyer on ABC. I didn't watch it. I don't really watch many
shows that aren't fiction. I don't care about "celebrities"
per se, just the ones that I like from my particular shows
or movies. I don't wish her harm or anything, and I hope she
is able to help other people with her story, but I'm really
not that interested in her or her problems. I feel the same
way about most celebrities, like Tom Cruise or whomever. I
mean, don't get me wrong, I would love to interview any
actor, director, writer or producer, but about their work,
not about their personal lives, by and large. If
they're someone I really like, I might read about their
personal life, but I don't usually go out of my way to do
it. They're just people, like us. Some of them just
lead more glamorous lives than we do, or like Jenner, are
hope the whole zombie trend is over now. I don't like
zombies, and I don't watch any of the zombie shows (iZombie
is okay). They're just too gross for me. It seems like
angels and other non-zombie people who've come back from the
dead are the new thing.
Showtime has a new black comedy, "Happyish". You
can watch the
first episode for free online!
I can't believe it's already April, can you? And in just
a few weeks we should start learning which shows are coming
back next year and which aren't. Brace yourselves!
Then there will be tons of re-runs, plus summer shows...
nowadays we don't get much of a break between TV "seasons."
I'm looking forward to the new TVLAND show "Impastor"
starring Michael Rosenbaum (Lex from "Smallville"), and more
Netflix comic book shows, and "Aquarius" on NBC!
