TV shows I should probably watch.

Last night I was at Target to buy cat litter, and moseyed over to the DVDs. They had a bunch of em on sale, including Golden Girls for $8.99 a season. It’s hard to get a good feature film on DVD for that price, much less an entire season of a show. Unfortunately, I was a bit late to the party, as most of the seasons were out of stock. And for some reason, Season 1 was not on sale and was $20, which would normally be a good deal but, comparatively speaking, was not.

Anyway, I have too many DVDs waiting to be watched. I’m still less than halfway through with the third season of Grey’s Anatomy (I have somehow managed to watch the first two seasons). I have Mad Men Season 1 on DVD but have only watched a couple of episodes. Both of which I liked. But I get so easily distracted, damnit. I’ll be all “Oh I should watch a DVD tonight,” then get distracted by some meaningless thing on TV, or decide I want a nap. It’s one reason I’m kind of terrible at Netflix.

But I do find time to browse and pick out shoes that look like they’re worth something. Below, a few shows on my radar.

I don’t get HBO, but have heard and read some really good things about this show. I’m kind of an advice column junkie because I love reading about how screwed-up other people are. I also probably should be in therapy. So this intrigues me. It’s on my Netflix queue, but at the rate I’m going, I may not get to it until 2013 or so.

Religious dysfunction? I can get behind that. Also, I am in favor of any TV show with opening credits where the cast is figure skating.

This show comes recommended by my friend over at Bubblegum Culture, as well as others. Just about every critic in the world loves it. True, I went to a football-crazed Texas high school, so I might constantly compare the real thing to the TV version (which is based somewhat on a book about the real thing). And I even get NBC, so I don’t know why I haven’t caught this show yet, even just while flipping through channels

I believe this episode of Project Runway requires a Viagra ad.

I have some fake news in my brain, but then I saw a Viagra commercial an instead must ask: Why the frack are these commercials on everything I watch? Conan O’Brien, The Daily Show, just about everything except reruns of Golden Girls, and even then I just might not be paying attention.

I don’t get it and I am sick of it. Why can’t some of these damn drug companies go bankrupt? The ED ads are the worst, but there are ads for everything and honestly, I like my meds, but I prefer to find out about them on my own or from my doctor.

I think they should start tailoring them to the programming. For instance, if Cialis wants to run ads during the 700 Club, the ads should say, “And on the seventh day, God said, ‘Man must bone his woman. Viva Viagra!’

In short, I want everyone associated with those ads who possesses a penis to never be able to get an erection again. Or failing that, I wish to become a lesbian.

I need to go to bed now. With any luck, I’ll have a nice dream about Tina Fey, who did the best parody ever in a spot for Conan O’Brien’s show: “If your Conan lasts more than three hours, call a doctor.” Maybe she can turn me over to the other side. I should be so lucky.

Cheesecake or Death

So the trip to the Big City was not so good. At least our main objective did not pan out at all the way it was supposed (the going to of the football game). But we ate at The Cheesecake Factory and while I may just be easily impressed, this particular location was really darn good. Continue reading
