Any other Medium watchers out there? Marc and I really enjoyed the series, especially the family dynamics and Bridget. They did a lot of interesting, different things over the years. But the series finale? Seriously disappointing. I can't believe they resorted to the old "it was all a dream" cliché. Really? And that whole ending shot killed me with its cheesiness. It's too bad a good series had to go out on a low note.
Dear Joe: I love you. Congrats on surviving all those years of being awakened by Allison's dreams and having crazy things happen (like when she doesn't recognize you).
House. I love the repartée in this show. Also, it seems that they finally quit using that stupid tactic of taking you inside the body to see what's happening. Good call.
I guess the story line of House getting clean and being a teeny bit more of a caring person wasn't very popular, because that is all out the window now. It's truly remarkable how much of a jerk someone can be, and perhaps even more remarkable that people genuinely care about him. And I wish I knew how Hugh Laurie can portray such a convincing American. When I hear him speak with his British accent, that sounds fake to me. That's how good he is.
video of Laurie on Ellen. I love him.
Survivor. We watched it at the beginning, and then for some reason we missed several seasons. Jill got us back into it a few years ago, and I have to say it does not disappoint. This is one show that manages to stay fresh and entertaining despite being in its 20th season!
Could you stand Russell's huge ego? And what happened to his mad immunity idol-hunting-without-clues skills? For once, his tribe wised up and voted him out when they had the chance.
Boston Rob. Charismatic and funny as ever. I love it when he talks to the camera. It's funny that even though he is about the biggest threat anyone could be, no one seems to think about getting rid of him. (Except for crazy Philip, that is. How funny is it that they put a question mark after his "former federal agent" title?) Rob's definitely still got it.
I think Redemption Island is a great twist. We are totally rooting for Matt – with such a great run of wins, he is a serious competitor. How cute was it when he was so excited to receive that pink Bible?
We do like tv around here. But lest you think it's all lowbrow fare, I do love me some BBC productions. Season 1 of Downton Abbey is currently on my docket. And my sister-in-law Lisa sent me Persuasion for my birthday! Rupert Penry-Jones, ooh la la.
