Swingtown 1x1: Pilot

The first thing that attracted me was Grant Show, which isn't surprising because not only did he spend most of Melrose Place with his shirt off, I have a feeling he will be spending a lot of time on Swingtown with his shirt off.

Nevertheless, I wasn't as impressed with this pilot episode as I have been with other pilots. It was interesting, but I due to the risky nature of the plot, I have a hard time imagining it will make it that far. Example: Inconceivable was a very short lived show (2 eps) on NBC about a fertility clinic. There was sex and backstabbing and took some giant leaps that many other shows hadn't approached. I thought that was a great show.

Either way, if Show keeps taking his shirt off and they keep playing great music, I'll stick around.

Unlike networks, I'm willing to give something a chance past two or three episodes.

Weeds Season 4 Coming June 16

May contain spoilers:

Anyone as excited as I am for this?


a day in the life

the month is already flying by and i don't feel like i have yet to accomplish much for June, except reading and watching movies/television.

two new shows have premiered recently that i started watching:
In Plain Sight with Mary McCormack about a US Marshall who handles cases with the witness protection program.
Swingtown with Grant Show ("Melrose Place") about couples in the 70s.

the former is better than the latter. but it's still early. i may change my mind.

in other television news, the SAG (aka Screen Actors Guild) is in talks to renew their contracts, however they are running into the same problems that the WGA had, which could mean yet another strike for television and movies. oh brother!!

i went to wendell/twin falls this weekend. two BBQs and a 1st birthday party for my cousin Kyler. seeing family was a nice relaxing time ... for the most part.

short work week. the happiest place on earth is calling my name and so is PIRATES. if that didn't make sense, i'm leaving thursday for DISNEYLAND!!

i'm back to having writer's block. this sucks.

Top Ten Mer-Der Moments

Grey's Anatomy Magazine #9 has come up with their Top 10 Meredith and Derek Moments. Do we all agree?

1. Bubble Bath (Season 3, Episode 8)
2. Elevator Rendezvous (Season 1, Episode 2)
3. Prom Night (Season 2, Episode 27)
4. Double Dating (Season 3, Episode 3)
5. House Party (Season 1, Episode 5)
6. Rose Shows Up (Season 4, Episode 10)
7. Derek Rescues Meredith (Season 3, Episode 16)
8. The Ex-Wife (Season 1, Episode 9)
9. The Train Crash (Season 2, Episode 5 and 6)
10. The Morning After (Season 1, Episode 1)

So ... are these the true top ten moments? I'm kind of feeling that there were some ones left out. I wish they included the house made out of candles.

In Plain Sight 1x1: Pilot

Not bad for an opening show. Like many of the reviews have stated, it's hard to picture Mary Shannon as this tough cop who's great at her job and terrible at her life without thinking at the other tough cop/terrible life women in television. Big example: Brenda Leigh Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick) in the Closer or Holly Hunter in Saving Grace (which is on my list to start watching).

Overall, I enjoyed the show very much and think it can only grow instead of decline. Every show deserves a chance and it seems like cable networks are the only ones that give them the opportunity before canceling them after two episodes.

In Plain Sight  is about a US Marshall with the witness protection program who is in charge of taking care of those place in New Mexico. It is a very interesting storyline, not just your typical good cop bad cop.

It will be fun to see where it goes and if she can sort of get her life together.

New Screencaps

I updated my scrapbook to include some new Kyra Sedgwick screencaps.

The Woodsman:
Making Of
Deleted Scene

I heart John James Preston

Sex and the City: the Movie is quite possibly one of the best and most enjoyable things I've seen in a long time.

Topped off with great girl friends, a packed and laughing theater and nothing could have been better than watching the four best girlfriends in the world out on the streets of New York.

Every woman needs to watch this ... but maybe watch the first six season first. :)

We all need amazing friends like Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte.

And every woman needs a Big.

Happy Sex and the City Day

The girls are back in town

and they brought a lot of fun.
Jeremy Bentham?!?

I honestly wouldn't have guessed it.

I would have to say that was a pretty amazing finale to leave us hanging until 2009 when Lost finally comes back, and this time with no writer's strike to scare us.

We got so many answers, still have so many questions, and a couple great and fantastic kisses. It was one surprise after another and I still want more.

Will we ever get a point where we don't?
