The TV MegaSite's Blog Post #174

If you watch "The Young & The Restless," we could really use your help! We are desperate to find some more update writers. This just means you watch the show and then type up what happened. It's not that hard!

I was on vacation last week, so I didn't keep up the blog at all! I went away for over a week, so before we left, I had to try to get as much off my DVR as I could....I was worried that when I recorded my shows while I was gone, it would fill up too much. I could only get it about halfway cleared off. That's because I still have the entire season's worth of "Arrow," "The Flash" and "Gotham" as well as 4 months of "General Hospital." I'm saving the first three to use for transcripts, eventually... I've already watched Flash and Gotham. Fortunately, it all worked out! I'm in no hurry to watch those GH episodes, though, but I can't quite bring myself to delete them, either. Old habits die hard.

I recorded the "Tony Awards" June 7 but still haven't watched those yet, either.

While I was away, I couldn't run our site's soap transcripts, but I did record the shows, so I'm slowly catching up now on running those, since I'm back... as of right now, I'm about half done. I should be all done by the time you read this!

I'm still trying to catch up on "Defiance" second season so I can watch the current one! It's so good. The first season was so-so at first, but it got really better.

This week's News is here and next week's is here. This has the schedule for you of all of the upcoming TV shows this week on the major and cable networks (well, not ALL but most of them - we're not really into reality shows too much and there are just too many of them to list). We put up most of our Primetime news & schedule up on the weekend, so check back!

I didn't have any interviews last week, but this morning I had one with Tony Denison of "Major Crimes" on TNT. Great show. He was such a nice man on the phone. I really love that show and have been enjoying it. I'm looking forward to catching up on new episodes of "Rizzoli & Isles," too.

I'm watching the last 2 episodes of "The Messengers" on The CW. I really enjoyed this show. It's sad that they didn't even give it much of a chance. I'm glad there are still 3 more episodes left, though!

San Diego Comic-Con is coming up soon, and I have volunteers who go there for me and take photos. Some of the networks are kind enough to invite us to their parties or events! Especially NBC, Syfy and FX.

I still have to catch up on "The Whispers" from the past two weeks. I like it so far, but finding room for another show is a challenge! I'm already behind on "Beauty & The Beast" for this month and haven't yet watched the newer episodes of "The Comedians", "Dark Matter", "Wayward Pines," and "Unreal," and I still have to check out "Astronaut Wives Club," "Proof," and "Complications!"  Whew!

Speaking of "Beauty & The Beast," the fans of the show have made a cookbook, which they're selling in order to raise money to fight Juvenile Diabetes (star Austin Basis has that disease, so it's a cause close to him).  

As always, I took a bunch of DVD's with me on vacation and didn't watch most of them...just so busy! We were busy having fun :)

I'm sorry for the fans of "Hannibal" that it got canceled. I know how painful that can be. I know why it got shafted, though. I mean, it was on 3 seasons, which is a lot for a summer show on NBC. This is the only Friday one I didn't watch that they canceled! Like "Dracula", "Crossbones" and "Constantine." Not to mention "Law & Order!" I guess they kept "Hannibal" around because it was artsy and by Bryan Fuller. They only did 10 episodes per season and I guess, they thought it might pick up some more audience members. To me it was just too gruesome, slow and self-indulgent.

I was at a party over the weekend and told someone what I do for a living, and she turned to me and said, "Wow, that must takes up a lot of time." I replied, "Yes, it sure does!" All I told her was that I interview actors over the phone and review all of the new shows. That's enough, but I do a lot more! As do all our volunteers.

Last night I had a dream about characters from "The Young & The Restless," which is really unusual. If I dream about any soap at all, it's usually "General Hospital." On Y&R right now, for real, Jack has been replaced by an evil twin, and Victor is behind it. In my dream, it was Victor who'd been replaced by an evil twin. I seemed to be the only one who knew, yet I couldn't tell anyone, but I was trying to let them know, anyway. Everyone was already pretty suspicious because he was being really bad, even for him. It was a very weird dream. I wish I could remember it better. I know that his wife Nicki figured prominently.

I don't normally watch any sports on TV, but my husband is a big sports fan. First, we watched the Triple Crown winner June 6. We went to a bar that had the race playing. I really didn't care. I just went with him and I was bored, but then I kind of got into the race. The whole bar was pretty excited. That's always fun.

We had a similar experience last week when we went to Las Vegas. Although I don't care about sports, I like to bet on them when we're there. I usually bet on my home team, or as close as I can get. I bet on the San Francisco Giants because the game was one of the few playing when we went to bet. It turned out to be a great game, and once again I found myself in a crowd of excited sports fans at a bar, cheering on our favorite. It was a lot of fun! And I won my bet, so woo hoo! :)

I hope you get to watch "Mr. Robot" on USA because it's a very good show. It's exciting and has good characters and excellent writing.

Sometimes "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver"  does these hilarious spoofs of TV shows using real actors. They had one a few weeks ago "Pre-Trial Services" that featured Dean Winters (whom you may know from "Battle Creek," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Oz" or other shows. It was so good. Great to see him again. I hope he gets another good show soon.  Josh Duhamel, too!

Speaking of canceled shows, we got the news last week that "Constantine" won't be coming back... they had hoped that another network would pick it up, but they couldn't sell it. That's too bad. I admit it wasn't the best show on TV, but I really did enjoy it.

I'm so behind on everything, due to being on vacation. I have about 4 or 5 interviews to transcribe. UGH. I hate doing that.

I found this last week: Kelly Hu from CSI:NY, Arrow, Vampire Diaries and Sunset Beach stars in this Viagra commercial!

One thing I always love to do when I'm in Vegas is take photos of the latest TV- and movie-themed slot machines. I found a few this time, which you can see in my Facebook photo album (you'll see all my trip photos there, not just the slot machines).  I'll probably put them on the site a little later. I already have some from my last trip there.

I'm almost done with running this week's soap transcripts. Whew, it sure took a long time to catch up!

On "Bold & The Beautiful," I'm glad that Rick and Maya are finally being shown again. The Wyatt/Steffi/Liam/Ivy baloney is so boring. The only bright spot was Quinn. We haven't seen Deacon very much lately, either.

Everyone who's ever watched "General Hospital" is very sad that Tony Geary (Luke) is leaving GH. It's a real shame. I wish they had better writers to write for him, and all of the other actors on the show. I wish him well and hope we see him in other films!

I don't watch any of these shows regularly, but I see bits and pieces while I run the transcripts. I was glad to see a great moment recently between John and Marlena on "Days of Our Lives!" They've always been my favorite.

Congratulations to our May Giveaway! Winners - Aretina Trepczyk and Angela R Eppley! I'll be choosing the June winners sooner. Make sure to enter after July 4th.

Have a great week!
