Let me just start off by saying how excited I was for the new fall television season to get underway. We've lived through many months of nothing to watch all summer long and couldn't wait to be able to sit in front of the television together instead of, oh I don't know, having a conversation or playing with the baby or something. So, below I will share my thoughts and feelings of this year's line up.
SURVIVOR: I have been hooked on this show since the first season and still love it so. I have a secret desire to go on because I know I could win that million dollars even though I have no idea how to build a fire or eat bugs. I'm sure there's a manual somewhere that I could read. Mike and I are hoping that one day there will be a couples Survivor and we can go on together. Let's get down to this year's participants. First of all, after 25 years of Survivor being on, anyone going on that show should know that at some point you may be whisked away to a secret location wearing only the clothes on your back. That being said, why would the clothes on your back consist of anything less than a good pair of athletic shoes, some sort of short or athletic type bottoms and for girls a good sports bra. These clowns this year were dressed totally inappropriately. And, honestly, I'm the one paying. After three weeks of seeing them try to compete in challenges wearing teeny tiny underwear I seriously want to gauge out my eyes. Have they not ever seen the show?! Last night one of the guys actually got naked to compete in a challenge. I guess he thought no one would want to touch him with all of his bits and pieces hanging out. I really wanted to vomit. Because even though the network blurs out exposed body parts, people I have a very vivid imagination. And all of those things flying around and coming dangerously close to falling out of flimsy undergarments is keeping me up at night. Until last night I really wanted James the gravedigger to win. That was until I saw his dark side where he made fun of people who pray and skinny girls. I'm telling you God will make him pay for the prayer remarks. As for the skinny girl, I think God would like to see her eat a sandwhich or something.
THE BACHELOR: I had given up on this show years ago, but was talked into watching it this year by Amy, partially because the Bachelor is from Austin. He is very cute and seems like a nice Texas boy. This show is like a train wreck. You want to look away, but you just can't. I can't get over these girls crying over this guy they've known for about five seconds. We've seen everything from webbed toes to the human pretzel to the girl with "morals" who takes her top off every chance she gets. Quality entertainment.
GRAY'S ANATOMY: I must admit that we almost decided not to watch this season because last year this show drove us crazy. THE DRAMA! It's ridiculous. This is a show about doctor's who you'd think would be very smart people. Only these doctors are all disasters outside of the hospital. Is anyone else as sick of Meredith Gray's character as we are? I know her dad left when she was a kid and her mom was a nut job, but does that really give her the right to be so selfish and mean to others? I think not! I think I might not make it through the entire season. However, I do enjoy the spin off show Private Practice that came from Gray's Anatomy.
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: I'm here to say that this is the best show on television. The first episode begins tonight so if you missed it last year, you should tune in! The only thing that I'm confused about is how the coach's wife is having a baby tonight when she wasn't pregnant in the last episode? Thoughts please.
LOST: I think it starts in two weeks. It has also gotten a little ridiculous but there are still many interesting characters and since I know the show will go off the air in three years I'm sure I can stick it out to the end just to find out what's really going on over on the island.
