Saturday August 15
Welcome to anyone who's reading this that's new to our site
or my blog!
As promised, I've been catching up on watching new shows
to review on our
site. I thought "A Wicked Offer" on The CW was pretty good.
It's a reality show in summer time on the CW, so my guess is
that it won't last. They're not too good about bringing back
their non-fiction shows, aside from "Whose Line Is It
Anyway" and "America's Top Models." I guess not many people
watch The CW in the summer. It's too bad because they have
some good shows.
I tweeted about the show, and the show's host thanked me!
That was very nice of him. :) I don't usually watch reality
shows, but I'll probably record it to DVD and maybe watch
more of them. I found the first one to be pretty
fascinating. When I told my husband about it, he was
aghast. He thought the whole premise was kind of disgusting.
Then again, he doesn't watch much TV and doesn't realize how
lowbrow most reality shows are. Ah, well.
I spent a lot of time catching up on our
Primetime News and
Schedule Pages this week. Check it out!
is here and
will be here.
usually gathers all of the press releases for me each day
and sends them to me and
Angie, and then
Angie goes through the main ones and edits them for me, to
put on the News and Schedule Page. I usually go through them
as well and pick out other information that might be useful
for our site.
Danielle is on vacation this week, though, so I've been
trying to cover some of it for her...she's really amazing,
so I can only do some of it. Also, she was very good about
doing a lot ahead of time before she left. I wish I had ten
more volunteers like her and Angie!
We have many great
volunteers, but a lot of them can only do one thing or
just work a few hours per week, so it's difficult with such
a big site.
We really need someone to write
Y&R updates for
our site, especially backup ones for
Ellen who's gone
or sick a lot.
Email me if you can help out! It's not hard... you just
and describe what happened.
I can't wait to see "Longmire" return in September on
Netflix! Such a good show.
I still have quite a few new shows to watch and
Sunday August 16
This weekend I caught up on watching "Rizzoli & Isles"
for this season. That was fun. I wish there were more shows
like it that were light and fun but without being stupid.
Sometimes they're serious, too. Both it and "Major
Crimes" are good that way. They have a nice balance between
fun and serious. It seems like a lot of the other shows I
watch take a lot more of my concentration or they're just
I was going through my DVD's and realized I only have a
couple of episodes of "Unreal" left to watch, so I'll be
easily caught up on that one, too. I also need to catch up
on "Dark Matter," "Dominion," "Humans," "Wayward Pines,"
"Mr. Robot," "Impastor," and then we'll see from there. I
have a few other shows that I don't like nearly as much that
I may or may not watch.
We were happy as always to watch "Real Time with Bill
Maher" and "Last Week Tonight" with John Oliver!
I'm going to go see "Rikki and the Flash" on Wednesday
with a friend. I can't wait! It stars Meryl Streep and Rick
Springfield. I loved him when he was on "General
Hospital," and I read that he's really good in this. He's
always been a great actor as well as musician. I hear he's
very good this season on "True Detective," too. Meryl
Streep is always wonderful, of course. I usually only go to
see scifi movies, but I really want to see this one. Oh, and
Streep's daughter, Mamie Gummer, plays her daughter in the
movie. You may remember her from the CW show "Emily
M.D." or from "The Good Wife."
We have some great volunteers and contributors who send
us lots of photos at fan events. Today I put up a bunch from
the GH Fan Weekend,
the Bold & Beautiful
Fan Event, and the
Young & The
Restless Fan Event, and
some other events,
so check them out. We should have more as well, soon,
from the GHFW from
Tomorrow I get to interview Elaine Hendrix from the FX
show "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll," which is great. I really enjoy
that one. Now if only the call weren't at 7am my time!
Monday August 17
It was a great interview...I wasn't sure what to ask at
first, but I came up with some good questions. Sometimes
it's better if I hear what other people say, and then I get
ideas. She seems like a nice person and very into animals.
She's a vegetarian activist. I asked her about the style of
music and also about what she wears on the show.
I have 3 months worth of "General
Hospital" on my DVR. I only watch some episodes when I'm
too lazy to find a DVD to watch, and there's nothing else
new on my DVD. I watched one today from late January.
I know a lot of fans are upset about Dante cheating on
Lulu. If you go back, though, you can see that they've been
having problems that started when Johnny came to town, way
back last November.
Now I'm catching up on "Dark Matters," a good show on
Syfy. It reminded me of "Firefly" at first, but now it's
moved beyond that. I really enjoy it.
I watched the new CW show "Significant Mother." It's a
silly show, but pretty funny.
I enjoyed seeing "Rikki and the Flash," but I wish it had
Springfield, and I wish he got to sing more. Meryl Streep is
the focus of the movie, and we barely see Springfield's
character in the first half. She's the lead singer, so he
mostly sings backup. Too bad. But they were both really good
in it, as were everyone else. I noticed that Sebastian Stan
played one of her sons. He was the first "Mad Hatter" in "Once
Upon a Time!" He plays Bucky (AKA Winter Soldier) in the
"Captain America" movies.
I had to write a
Bold & The Beautiful Article. The show is just so good
Tuesday August 18
Last night I did more catching up on
TV shows to review!
Whew! Only a couple more and then I'm caught up for a while.
Just in time for the new Fall TV season! LOL!
Sometimes it's difficult to watch TV before bed because I
have some really weird dreams or nightmares. I try not to
watch anything too violent or grisly before bed. However,
last night I had lots of weird dreams after watching the
documentary "What Happened, Miss Simone?"!!! I have no
idea why. I guess because her story was just so sad, and she
had mental problems, and her husband beat her, etc.
Still, I didn't expect such weird dreams from it.
Today I watched 3 episodes of the new show "Public
Morals" that will air soon on TNT. It's a really good show,
with great writing and a fabulous cast, but I don't like
shows where they have corrupt cops or where the protagonists
are supposed to be "good" yet they do terrible things. I
really don't like mobster shows, either.
I got a lot of work done on the site today. There's
always tons to do!
Wednesday August 19
I'm still watching and enjoying "Teen Wolf," even though
I find it very confusing at times. Part of the problem
is that there are a lot of new cast members and I have
trouble telling them apart at times.
I read that Jason Dohring (Logan on "Veronica
Mars") is going to be joining "The
Originals!" That's awesome!! I love him. I wonder if
he'll play a vampire, like he did on "Moonlight?"
I also read that Shannen Doherty (Prue on
Brenda on "90210") has breast cancer. I
hope she'll be okay! It's so strange because a woman I know
on Facebook, who lives in L.A., had mentioned a few months
back that she saw Doherty at the hospital (her daughter
works there or something). She must have been getting
treatment at that time, or visiting her doctor.
It's very sad that Yvonne Craig (Batgirl) passed away,
too. So many of my childhood favorites are gone now.
Thursday August 20
really enjoying Jason Gedrick on "Beauty
& The Beast!" What a great character Liam is. I should
have known that he wouldn't just be a one-note villain.
Tess and JT's romance is certainly taking a terrible beating
this season. I hope they both survive, relationship intact.
Great reveals this week, too.
For the second time this week, I noticed that my DVR
didn't record a show that it should have! I hope it's not
dying or something. I've had that happen before with DVR's.
First it didn't record "Young
& The Restless" earlier this week (thankfully I record
it on my other DVR, too, as a backup). Then I noticed
that it didn't record "The Whispers" last week! I went to
watch this past week's episode and realized that the "last
time" part was unfamiliar. I had to find it On Demand and
watch it there. Good episodes, though. I don't think Minx is
really Drill. I think that Drill somehow faked it to make
her look like she was the one.
I got some new blu-ray DVD's to review today for "The
Diaries" -- those will be great to watch.
Saturday, August 22, the new show "Blunt Talk"
begins on Starz! It stars Patrick Stewart. Sounds like a
great show. I can't wait to see it. I'm hoping Starz will
give me access for my review. If not, I'll have to wait
because I don't get Starz, only HBO.
I have a bunch of
new interviews to put up this weekend, too.
Have a great weekend!
