Catching Up On TV

We've been catching up on episodes we missed while Husband was in the hospital, so I'm sure I'm way behind. Even when he's home, I rarely know when the air dates are since I just watch them as Husband plays the previously recorded episodes.

Weeds: I don't like the theme of this show as far as the mother engaging in criminal activity with her kids involved, but I do like the show because the characters and writing can be so funny and fun to watch. For instance, even as an unlikable guy, Albert Brooks is hilarious. I loved the part where Celia was in jail and how cowed and subdued she was as well as the changes in her make-up and hair style. Other than Albert Brooks and Celia in jail, I'm not enjoying this season as much as the previous ones. The Nancy-working-for-Guillermo story line is already getting old, and I miss the whole suburban subdivision setting and the Little Boxes theme song.

Greatest American Dog: This was a lot more fun to watch than I expected. Some of the dogs are pretty amazing in what they can do, and you have the usual assortment of people, some likable and some not. While the guy and his Boston Terrier (Michael and Ezzie) who got eliminated were not favorites of mine, I still think they should have stayed instead of that unbearable woman and her dog who wouldn't do anything (Brandy and Beacon).

Last Comic Standing: So sad to see God's Pottery gone. I really enjoyed those guys. I wish that Papa CJ would have been eliminated instead of them. I didn't like him from the beginning. On this episode, I thought Sean Cullen was hilarious in the little interview bits throughout the show. He wasn't as funny in the challenge, though. I guess some people are like that--really funny conversationally, but not so much in a stand-up comedy type way. I'm glad that Esther was eliminated. She got on my nerves, and I can see why the others couldn't take her raucous laugh anymore. Jim Tavare was funnier in this episode than I would have expected from what I'd seen of him before.

So You Think You Can Dance: The dances I liked best from the episode I watched were the Adam and Eve dance by Will and Jessica and, surprisingly, the Bollywood dance by Joshua and Katee. I thought the Adam and Eve one was really poetic and pretty, and they did it so flawlessly. I was totally amazed at the Bollywood. I didn't expect to like it, and it really wowed me. Really fun to watch. I haven't seen the results episode yet, so I don't know who got eliminated.

Now that Husband is out of the hospital, he's doing all he can to catch up on work, so I have to wait until he is back home in a few days to see more TV.

Aren't Summer TV shows fun? I saw your name on a posting from a friend's blog and had to ask: how did you get the name Tuppence?

I first knew if from an Agatha Christie series about Tommy and Tuppence. My beloved cat of 13 years was named Tuppence and I called her Tuppy.

Tuppence said...

Tuppence came about because our last name is Pence, and when we were trying to come up with an email address for the first time for the the two of us (Husband and me), he came up with tuppence for 'two pence'. Eventually he got his own email address, and I got used to using Tuppence online.

God's pottery made me laugh so hard. I am also sad to see them go.
