Sure, the acting is suspect and it took an episode or two to really get moving, but overall this is what I call entertaining TV.


yeah, it's cheesy, but entertaining, decent suspense, some hot skanks

Watched two episodes of Nurse Jackie on Showtime and it's pretty good. It's about a nurse (played by Edie Falco of Sopranos fame) who's good at heart and is very helpful to the patients, but also does a lot of dubious things, like banging her pharmacist to get more oxycotton because she has a bad back. It's worth a look.

I'm also loving the return of True Blood on HBO! Sookie bares her breasts again in the first episode of Season 2. Very nice! ;-D

ratings my friend. As a loyal follower from day 1... it pissed me off. They even have an entire episode in season 3 titled "save our bluths" joking about it. In season 3 several times joke things like "tell your friends" etc... Jason Bateman once went on Letterman I believe begging for people to watch. This was before Nielsen tracked DVR recording. Just like Family Guy, AD was killed due to poor ratings. The cast of arrested moved onto other projects. It could have been brought back because of the DVD boom in sales... like family guy... but the cast was doing other things. Family Guy has a relatively unbusy cast. That came back fairly easily. Stupid Fox. Pulling both of those shows in the first place shows how dumb they are. I rewatch the entire series every month or so. Yeah, you read that right... every month or so. I rotate through the entire AD series and The Office seasons 1-4 while I'm trying to fall asleep every day. Usually watch 3-6 episodes or more a day.

Can't wait for the movie! ;-D :-D

Entourage and Family Guy reruns. My two favourite shows never get old.

First episode was interesting. 6 WRs vs. 6 DBs. But there was too much gratuitous puking (I don't need to see that). Also - at the elimination, there were 2 WRs and one DB and the DB got sent home. It makes me cringe to think Irvin might favor the WRs in this much like he does in his TV analysis.

It's on Monday nights at 10:00 on Spike.


I like the show. Have it DVR'd. Michael Irvin has that no nonsense attitude. ;-D

He better continue to be tough on them because I don't want some chump on my team.


I love this show. Might be because I'm a diehard 'Boys fan and love to root for the underdog making the squad but some of this "reality" show is pretty legit. I hope to see whoever comes out on top of this tight show go on to make a difference. We all know legitimate depth in the WR core can't hurt nowadays...

So my wife and I watchd 5 episodes in a row yesterday and we are officially hooked (the episodes were DVR'ed). I never really like Irvin before, but he comes off very well in this show.

It's about time Gamble got sent home. He was due to go home two episodes ago.

I also must say that McGann got royally screwed over after posting 150 yards and 2 TDs and they did not bring him back. They told them that if they outplay any of their counterparts that they could switch jerseys and stay in the house. He did that. What more could they ask for? Were they looking for 250 yards? 4 TDs? C'mon. :-t

The new season of Entourage started and it keeps on proving why it is the best show on TV. Ari is still venemous like a snake, and the rest of the cast is funny as hell. More importantly, however, I've found Emmanuelle Chriqui to be my new favorite hot actress. She looks amazing this season and she looked awesome in Zohan (movie of the year, too, IMO).
