The Confrontation

I can’t believe I missed this when they first did it in 2006.  Here’s Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel singing The Confrontation from Les Miserables.  Just brilliant!

How I Met Your Mother: “Thank you.”

The past few episodes have been very emotional for me.  I have been watching this show from the start.  I can’t believe there is one episode left.

On Friendship…

And that's how it goes, kids. The friends, neighbors, drinking buddies, and partners in crime you love so much when you're young - as the years go by, you just lose touch. You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever. That's why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.

The TV Shows I Follow

I watch A LOT of shows. But I’ve never really counted them, and I was inspired to count when a friend mentioned that he follows 30 shows.  So, let’s do this…

I have never followed Dancing With the Stars. But I will start following it now that I have “discovered” Derek Hough.  He’s such a great dancer!

I’ve never followed Dancing With The Stars.  But because of this dance, I just might follow the current season.  That dance was hot AND beautiful!

My TV Shows

by Robert Couse-Baker on Flickr

I follow way too many TV shows.  I watch while I’m working at home, I watch before I sleep, and I watch while in traffic.  Some of the shows I follow are really good, but there are others that are really just guilty pleasures.  Sometimes, I even wonder why I’m still following a show – there are shows that I don’t really like anymore, but because I’m heavily invested and I’m so into the story already, I continue to follow them because I want to know what’s going to happen next.  It takes a lot for me to stop watching a show that I’m following.

Here’s a list of all the shows that I’m following:

Undercovers

When I found out that JJ Abrams has a new show, I got really excited.  And then when I found out that it had the same premise as Mr. and Mrs. Smith, I got more excited!  The show, entitled “Undercovers”, is about a couple who used to be spies.   They retired after they fell in love and got into the catering business.  They were asked to go back into the spy world, and then there was no turning back.

Alas, after watching the first two episodes, the two words that best describes the show is “NOT ENOUGH”.  The show, being a spy show, tries to be exciting and action-packed, and it tries to be funny too with all the banter and bickering between the two lead characters.  Sadly, it falls short of everything – for me, it’s just not exciting enough, not hot enough, not funny enough. The action scenes are bordering on lame and there are too few, the sexy scenes are not hot, and the bickering is bordering on annoying.

The biggest problems, in my opinion, are the following: casting of the female lead character, and the chemistry of the two lead characters.  Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who plays Samantha Bloom, lovely as she is, just doesn’t come across as a credible and hot spy.  It doesn’t even matter if she wears sexy clothes, and has some sexy scenes.  She doesn’t look like a natural when she’s trying to unlock a door or difuse a bomb.  And then when she has scenes were her husband Steven Bloom, who is played by Boris Kodjoe, I don’t see the chemistry.

I’ll see if the next few episodes will be better.  I really hope so…

Chuck Season 4


Photo from Daemonstv.com

Nerdherders are rejoicing now that Chuck is back! And boy, is it stronger than ever!  The first episode of the fourth season brings a strong message – that Chuck means business.  And that they are doing everything to stay.  If the episode is an indication of what’s to come, then I would buy the full season if I were the network.

The producers realized that Chuck/Zachary Levi have a female following and decided to build on this by including shots of him topless.  He also has more close up shots.  They also made sure the guys had their fair share of sexiness by making Sarah more playful and adding Olivia Munn into the roster.  I just hope that her character will be important, and that she’s not just there for show.

One of the best, if not the best elements of this season is the addition of Linda Hamilton’s character, who’s pretty badass.  I can’t wait for her story to unfold.

So, fellow Chuck fans, things are looking good.  I hope this continues for the next few episodes so that we’ll be assured of a full season!
