It’s Alive!!!!!

So it’s been, 5 months?   That’s a long ass time.   My job sucks.  My real job.   It’s been so bad I still have Bones, Criminal Minds, Agent’s of Shield, New Girl, and The Following from last season still on my DVR.  Not to mention Suits, Rizzoli & Isles, Graceland, and The Americans from the summer.  It’s bad.  I can’t promise I’ll be back more and posting more and podcasting more…I can’t.   I wish I could but I can’t.    But I will get on here as much as I can because I miss talking to my favorite peeps about my favorite past time!

I’m going to bring back my network by network preview and try to get my fall preview podcast out this week.   And then in just a short while…the new season begins!!!    Can you believe it?    Man this summer flew.   But I’m ready for fall and the new season.

For those of you who still check in every once in a while to see if I really am still alive….I should send you money.   And thank you!  If I lost you, I understand and maybe I’ll be lucky and get you back.   Either way, I’m ready for the new TV season.

2014 Mid Season Premieres UPDATED

Happy New Year!   So glad I’m not sick anymore but this crazy weather of 50 degrees one day and 9 the next isn’t helping.   Ugh!

The mid-season premieres and returning shows are upon us so I have updated that sections with all the latest dates and shows.   And just to reiterate, if a show isn’t on there (like Game of Thrones) it’s because it doesn’t have a date yet.  GoT should be in April at some point but nothing has been officially announced yet (come on people we’re dying over here!!!)

Here’s what I’m most looking forward to in 2014:

Returning Shows:

  • How I Met Your Mother: the series finale.
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • The Blacklist
  • Arrow
  • The Following
  • Parenthood
  • Revenge
  • The Good Wife
  • Castle
  • The Americans
  • Grimm
  • Agents of SHIELD
  • Orphan Black
  • Suits
  • Episodes
  • Dallas
  • The Winter Olympics!

New Shows:

  • Intelligence
  • True Detective
  • Enlisted
  • Black Sails
  • About a Boy
  • Crisis

Not a whole lot of new shows I’m checking out.  I can’t keep up with what I currently watch so if it really doesn’t blow me away, I’m out before I start!  Sorry!

What about you?  What are you looking forward to seeing return or premiere?

RIP Larry Hagman

While this news is not surprising, it is certainly incredibly sad.   Hollywood lost a true legend on Friday.  Larry Hagman, at the young age of 81, passed away after complications from cancer with his family and friends.

Arguably, Hagman created one of the most, if not THE most, iconic TV characters in TV history…J.R. Ewing.  A role he recently reprised in the summer reboot of “Dallas” on TNT.   Hagman is most known for his role of J.R. Ewing, which he played for 14 seasons on the original “Dallas” run (1978-1991.)  Hagman is also known for his role as lovable Major Tony Nelson on “I Dream of Jeannie” (1965-1970) with Barbara Eden.   He was also the son of Broadway legend Mary Martin and Ben Hagman.

I remember watching “Dallas” as a kid.  I was on 4 when it first came on the air.  But one of the first TV episodes I remember watching was on March 21st 1980…the infamous “Who Shot JR” episode.  I remember it not so much for the episode itself, but for the way my family reacted watching the episode and how they talked about it all summer long.  I remember being in my house at the Jersey Shore and my aunt saying to my mother that she was rethinking it was Cliff Barnes that shot JR and that maybe it was really Sue Ellen.   They went back and forth all summer….would it be a big character, would it be a smaller character.  And their answer came in November 1981 (but if you want to find out who shot him, you’ll have to watch the show!)

There have been so many iconic TV characters over the years…Lucy Ricardo, Mary Richards, Archie Bunker, Ralph Kramdon, Columbo….but right up there with all of them is J.R. Ewing.  And while a good portion of that was due to the writing, in my opinion, it was because of Larry Hagman and his perfect portrayal of the “love to hate him” bad boy Ewing.

The reboot of “Dallas” is currently filming its second season, which is set to premiere on Jan 28th on TNT.  At this point, they are 6 episodes into shooting.  There are 15 episodes scheduled for Season 2.  There is no specific plan on how Hagman’s death will be dealt with on the show but the show runners have said that they are looking at revising scripts and will give J.R. the big send off both the character and the fans deserve.

Rest in Peace Mr. Hagman.  I hope you are finally at peace and thank you for years of gracing my house with your talent and charm.   You were truly exceptional. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends at this difficult time.

New Format…Sort Of

I’m going to try a few different ways to do my recaps since it comes down to not having enough time to go through every episode the way I would like.  Let me know what you like and don’t and majority rules.  But here’s how it’s going to go:

  1. Recaps/Review of Multiple Episodes at a Time (unless it’s a huge episode then I’ll talk specifically about that.  Otherwise to get caught up, it will be a few at once)
  2. One network at a time (I might try to do CBS one day, ABC show another, etc)
  3. Days of the week shows (I think this is self-explanatory)
  4. Comedies and Dramas…again, you get the picture.

We’ll see where it takes me, but my goal is to get more show recaps out more quickly without going so long and feeling overwhelmed to catch up.

Here goes….

RIP Michael Clarke Duncan

Very sad news from today.  Michael Clarke Duncan, known mostly from his Academy Award nominated role in “The Green Mile”, passed away today while being hospitalized following a myocardial infarction on July 13th.  Mr. Duncan was only 54 years old.

I know Michael Clarke Duncan was primarily known for his film career vs. his all-too-short TV career on the short-lived “The Finder” last season, but I had to send my condolences to his family and friends.

Everything I have ever read about Duncan, painted him as a kind and loving man…a gentle giant.  All the interviews I have ever seen with him showed a man who loved what he did. had a genuine love of life, and a humility about him that was rare in Hollywood.

It’s always sad when people leave us, especially when it is way before their time.  Michael Clarke Duncan, we may be crying down here, but I’m sure they are smiling and singing tonight in Heaven now that another angel has passed through St. Peter’s gates.

Rest in peace!

2012 Fall TV Season Previews Coming This Week!!!

It’s almost here everyone….the new TV season!!!  It is already time to preview the fall season and see what we are all excited about watching whether it be for the first time or a returning show (can’t wait till Castle returns!!!!)

I was going to post two networks today but it was Fantasy Football weekend at my house (my teams are awesome by the way) and it seems my husband’s fraternity brothers decided to hang out much longer than expected.   Which I don’t mind at all because I love those guys but it makes it a bit more challenging to blog.  Plus we had to do a True Blood marathon to get ready for tonight’s finale!!   Which by the way, are you as bored by this season as I am?  I just think there is WAAAAY too much going on with too many characters….but I digress.

So each day/night I’ll do one network and it will be the same format as last year….what’s returning, what’s new, what I’m excited about, what I could care less about, what I am giving a life raft to (one more season), and what to watch for in the new season.

The blog is gearing up for fall.  After you hear what I think, you have to let me know what you think!

I’m Back!!!

Hi Gang,

I know you’ve been wondering, “where the hell has she been?  I thought this new job was supposed to mean MORE blogging!!!”   Or you could care less and have moved onto other things.

Well this is the longest I’ve gone without blogging or podcasting…YIKES!!!   But my new job has been A LOT more challenging out of the gate than I had anticipated (working from 7am until 11pm/midnight is not my idea of balance.)   But I’m hoping that circle of insanity will be coming to a close in the near future.

Starting this weekend I am going to be popping out some posts and hopefully getting a podcast squeezed in as well.   I will have my thoughts on the Emmy Noms that just came out (still no Nick Offerman, really and where the hell is The Good Wife for Best Drama????!!!!!)   I’ll also be catching up on Suits, Covert Affairs, Bunheads, Pretty Little Liars, The Closer and Rizzoli and Isles.   WOW that’s ambitious.    But I’ll give it my best.

I’ve missed you all but hopefully I’ll be back with a little more regularity!!!!
