Still Alive

First off I'd like to apologize for the large lack of updates lately. Been feeling terrible and have barely managed to get out of bed the last few days. My pain is your gain though! I've had a chance to catch up on a number of shows. I recently went back and watched the first 3 seasons of Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which is easily one of the best comedies on television right now.

I cannot recommend Its Always Sunny enough. It follows the crazy and hilarious hijinks of a group of friends who own and operate a bar. It just goes to show that people that work at bars have more exciting lives than you can ever dream of. Hulu has a few episodes that you can give a shot. I don't think you'll regret it.

One of the shows that has never ceased to amaze me is Chuck. It was a show that was hyped a lot in the media when it first came out but I never caught onto until the second season. It follows the tried and true storyline of "Nerd gets super powers, hot chicks ensue". It IS worth noting that the women in the show are nearly always flawless. From the blondes to the redheads, if you have a penis then this show will probably catch your attention.

Rumored to be cancelled at the end of every season, it has managed to pull through for the past two years now by the fans petitioning and generally just bitching about it wherever people will listen. If it works, why fix it? This show is entertaining, fast paced, but it still hits the same notes that you've seen before on shows like this. Will he get the girl or will he shoot some guy no one gives a shit about? Highlights have included Brandon Routh as a hero/villain in Season 2. If you're a fan of the Baldwins or you work for the Geek Squad. You might as well watch an episode and check out the eye candy.

House M.D

One of the main shows I was looking forward to this Fall was the return of House M.D. Hugh Laurie is one of the few actors that is on television right now that knows what he's doing season after season. At the end of the last season, we have a bit of a happy ending of sorts where he and his love interest Cuddy get together at the end of the episode and he decides not to take Vicodin. 

This season starts up on a note that you're not very used to with this show. Everything is happy go lucky. House isn't being a narcissistic asshole and there really are moments in the show where you wonder "Why would they do this?". I'm hoping that before this show runs me off that it'll come back to the sarcastic humor that its known for. Any thoughts?

Fall TV Looking Better Already

Normally, I am very hesitant about the beginning of Fall. Sometimes your favorite shows come back with the same vigor and formula that you love, while some try to add something new to the mix. With this blog, I hope to keep you updated on a number of shows to look forward to, while I vent about whatever has happened to me. Hopefully, you'll get a laugh and some good information at the same time.

My first pick is the Showtime show Dexter. Before this season, it was one of the best written shows on television, and this season doesn't appear to disappoint. Starting off slow with its season premiere, we get a glimpse of what the main character Dexter Morgan, a serial killer, is like when there really is no emotional mask to put on. The scenes were well chosen, and even if the possibility of romance being hinted between Deb and Quinn is predictable, I expect the show to make up for it with enough blood and body bags to remind us of why we watch in the first place.
