Episode 622

One final installment before I go on official hiatus (as opposed to the unofficial hiatus of the last month).  This time, I have a good excuse: HBO GO.  So many shows at my fingertips, there won't be much time for anything else.  Except Bachelor Pad.  It turns out the premiere was three hours long, and it turns out I watched the whole thing.  If it redeems me at all, I did delete Jersey Shore from my DVR approximately three minutes into the first episode (I had to record it since it was in Florence, but it wasn't even close to worth it).  In any case, all of my summer reality TV will be made up for by the high class shows that HBO has to offer.


Granted, I maybe didn't start at the top of the critically-acclaimed list, but what on earth is so great about True Blood?  I only made it halfway through the third episode of the first season before I decided to call it quits.  My main issue with it is this: Anna Paquin.  And the rest of the show.  And I think that's all.

So, until next time, I leave you with my top pick for the new fall line-up: Suburgatory.  No particular reason, I just have a feeling it's going to be a game-changer.


  1. I'm in total agreement about True Blood. I tried and tried to get into it since many people near and dear to me love it. I still catch the last few minutes of it every week because it's on just before Curb, which I am tuned in to five minutes early just in case it unexpectedly comes on five minutes early.

  2. My opinion is True Blood is confused on many levels. It's based off of a cheesey (though often funny) murder mystery with a side of supernatural sexy-times book series, converted into a tv series by a guy who likes his stuff seriously dark. If that's not identity crises for enough for the poor thing, it is possibly the most horrifically miscast show I have ever seen. Seriously, who cast that pilot? They need to never work again.

    Though, I'll forgive them if their also the one who cast Alcide. That man is smoking.
