Tivo List

Since I don't have a Tivo, I'll just have to post a list of the shows that it would hypothetically be set up to record. In no particular order I present the following:

My Name is Earl
NFL Cheerleader Playoffs
Desperate Housewives
Grey's Anatomy (for my wife)
Dancing With the Stars
Biggest Loser
Project Runway
Heroes (this might suck, but I'm interested to see how fast I'll get bored with it)
Bones (I've seen one episode, it looked ok)
Iron Chef America (in the hopes that somebody kills Bobby Flay)
Girls Next Door (don't judge me)
America's Next Top Model (seriously, don't judge me)
Any Justice League Cartoons
Teen Titans

Oh yeah, and Endurance or Endurance Island, whatever it's called. It's kind of like Survivor with 13 year olds. It's fun to watch because these kids aren't completely tainted yet and some of them still have morals. They want to do the "right" thing and stand by their "friends" even though it's strategic suicide.
Oh and anything that has the words "WWE" and "diva" in it.

Dagromm, To be honest, not too many surprises on your list, but that's probably because you are pretty open with your viewing habits. No guilty pleasures on your list by virtue of the fact that there are none you are secretly guilty about. I'm right there with you on Heroes. I'm anticipating a sort of X-Men knock off show but I do hope it's good. Of course we've already debated Dancing with the Stars. My least favorite thing are the announcers. They kind of suck. You should check out Battlestar Galactica. Actually, download the first two seasons through itunes onto your computer and then pick up with Season 3. It starts early October. I highly recommend it! As far as The Girls Next Door is concerned... My only problem is I keep waiting for them to take their clothes off!

See I just tivo anything that has "number 'x'" in the title. For instance "Wet and Messy big boobs number 10" you can't go wrong.

I'm afraid to watch Heroes when I get home tonight. I just don't want it to suck.

The 4400, though not consistent, has done a neat job of portraying a world where suddenly people with gifts appear.

Not consistant would be my take on it but I'm reserving judgement until a few more episodes into the show. My only hope is that they pace themselves better. Sometimes some of the storylines seam rushed. I'll not ruin anything for Gyuss but my first observation was about the character with the first lines in the story. Something tragic happens to him early on and while his character is sufficently fueled with motiviation by the tragedy he doesn't dwell at all on the tragedy itself. If the significance of his loss was so important to him you would think he would grieve just a little. I chalk it up to the show needing to move forward to quickly in order to tell its story. Also, some of the lines are a little corny and the delivery by some actors is uneven. However, there are some bright spots. The Japanese kid is great and the down-and-out mom is a good character. I really want to like the cheerleaders story but right now her acting is a little stiff. I'll probably do a review by episode 5 and give it up if by ten eps it proves to suck.

I haven't watched the whole show yet, but just now the internet porn MILF has hooked me.

and wtf? the cheerleader is from an "Odessa Texas" with mountains? there are frigging mountains

cyberman said...

Yep, the MILF is great. She played the defendant in Legally Blonde. Never thought about mountains in west texas. Funny! What did you think of some of the other characters, G? Dags, did you get a chance to watch the first ep?

You know, Heroes didn't suck.

It wasn't mind blowing, but it didn't suck.

I'm definitely in with Cyber. I'll watch 5 episodes and see where it goes.

I just watched "Blue Ballin' Heroes" is it anything like what ya'll are watching. Stephen St. Croix is awesome!

I watched the second half of the Heroes premiere. It was a solid "ok" with "uh-oh" on the horizon. As if anything with super powers involved wasn't comic-booky enough, they seem to be telling us that there will also be a comic book involved as part of the story. That's a big uh-oh. This is somewhat passable in a comic story where this happens, but given the audience for Heroes I don't think anything significant with this thought process is going to fly. Additionally the artwork on the cover of the comic looked terrible and totally implausible as a marketable comic that would be produced. Unfortunately, I think this will also bother the audience if it continues. Bad props are a sign of ignorance or indifference. If this is a major part of the story then neither of those explanations are acceptable.
On a side note a cheerleader that regenerates seems like the perfect girlfriend for the Q.

I totally agree, sex that involves gunplay with virtually no risk of incarceration. JACKPOT!
