love my TV

Ok, so it is no secret to the world that I am a major cinephile and I also enjoy watching TV shows, and LOTS of TV shows. At the moment there are about 12+ shows I follow and I keep finding more :-) If there was a job where I would sit allll day watching one show after the other and reviewing them I would be the perfect candidate (hint hint, feel free to hire me :-P).

The shows that are hot at the moment according to me are (in no particular order other than what pops up in my mind at the moment):

NCIS -- you can never go wrong with some Gibbs, a dash of Abby, and some sexy DiNozzo in the pot! A great show I love to keep watching and recommend you to do so as well.

The Office -- I must say I was sad when Steve Carell left the show but rejoiced when I saw that James Spader joined the team. I love Spader as an actor (hello Boston Legal) and he is a great addition to the show. His character may still need to warm up a little more but I think Dunder Mifflin has taken him in with open arms.

The Big Bang Theory -- Uhm do I really need to explain myself here?? The whole gang, especially Sheldon and Walowitz crack me up every week and leave me wanting more. The intelligent, witty, hear-them-and-fall-off-your-chair-beacuse-you-are-laughing-too-hard is why we love our smart (and slightly ditzy friends).

How I Met Your Mother -- I think it is safe to say that we are all curious as to who will play the mother Ted is looking for but we are still not ready to find her yet. My favorite (if that is even possible to have one) Barney always surprises me with lines only Neil Patrick Harris can deliver. That is not to say that the rest of the cast don't do a great job, which they all do! Legen-waitforit-dary!

Chuck -- As it is the last season of the dorkturnedawesomeagent I feel that they did get a lot out of the show and as it will end I doubt we will be disappointed and left with questions (ehem Lost). It is cute, funny, and kick-ass but I think it is time to retire the tie and sail into the sunset for Chuck and the gang.

Glee -- Lalalalalala. Love the songs but must say that the drama has been spiked up waaay high, I mean Quinns transformation from celibatelittlegirl-turned-punkrockpinkhairedsmokingantihumans-turned-undercoversweetgirl to get her baby back...dial it down a couple of notches please and return to the awesomeness that is MUSIC!! Do not get confused, I still wait for a new episode every week! Such a gleek.

Hawaii Five-0 -- Enter sexy and funny Alex O'Loughlin as Commander Steve McGarrett. The bromance between Danno and Steve is what keeps me coming back to the screen week after week. The witty comments, acting, and "classy"-yet-subtle jokes holds the exact  right amount of humor, action, and (on few occasions) rrromance for us to love this power team. Plus the scenery does not hurt one bit. Mmmm Hawaii...

Rules of Engagement -- Oh Lord! Jeff Bingham played by Patrick Warburton is awesome!! The lines delivered during the short episodes crack me up like clockwork. Needless to say the men of the show are what bring the regular laughters but that doesn't mean that the women do not deliver, au contraire my friends, they deliver spot-on punchlines without hesitation. Season 6 and going strong, but I have one question to the producers: will Jen and Adam EVER get married?? I mean even Russell beat them to the altar, isn't it time for them to tie the knot?

Rookie Blue -- Not a whole lot of episodes out and have to wait til summer 2012 for the new season to air but I still wait for the Canadian show to return to our screens. I love the cast and must say that my guilty pleasure of romance is provided more than enough. SPOILER ALERT! STOP READING ABOUT THIS SHOW IF YOU INTEND ON WATCHING IT AND DO NOT WANT TO KNOW ANY MORE! Can't say I didn't warn you. Chemistry between Sam and Andy is through the roof! Even though a part of me cheered for Andy and Luke, the real "wow" factor came frome Sam and Andy finally hooking up. Ps. To the network: next time, don't let us wait a whole year to return to the show. Not cool. Not cool at all.

Cougar Town -- As we all know (who watch the show) the title is a hatedwithpassion piece of work that may change but has not yet been decided as far as I know. The Cul-de-sac crew bring back the laughter and awkward moments we love and cherish. I cannot wait for season 3 to air which will be sometime in 2012. Again, to the network: still not cool.

New Girl -- A new show I have fallen head over heels in love with!!!! Sad to see that Damon Wayans Jr chose Happy Endings (also a good show but do not follow it religiously and therefore is not mentioned here) but his replacement, Winston played by Lamorne Morris, does not disappoint. Awkward-start-to-sing-whenever Jess is such a cute character but let's face it the boys are what makes the show so awesome. Zooey Deschanel, a beautiful and talented actress and the perfect Jess! Her shenanigans and crazy situations along with the guys' hilarious take on life is why I love this awesome show and why you should watch it too. Finish reading this entry and immediately start watching the show. I mean it. No joke. Don't make me tell you twice.

Ok, moving ooon....

Man Up -- Funny show but may be hard for people to fall in love with. Give it a shot, who knows maybe you'll like the 3 men trying to make the best out of the lives they live. Oh and the "look at your man now look at me now look at your man now look back at me" guy (Henry Simmons) is on the show and he is HILARIOUS!! Give the show a chance, you might like it. I know I do :-)

Revenge -- A story if a woman returning to the summer house she lived in as a child to destroy the family that destroyed hers. It is a riveting story and hard to stop watching. The actors are great and some you love while others you cannot stand. All I know is that I am rooting for Team Emily or should I say Amanda. Just watch it, don't ask any questions.

Pan Am -- Beautiful makeup, awesome clothes, crazy acting, cold war, hot pilots, gorgeous stewardesses. Need I say more? Ok, plot that is easy to get caught up in. The influence of the 60's is back with all its grace. Wonderful show that every Sunday has me and my mother glued to our Television screen.

Once Upon A Time -- Who doesn't like fairy tale stories? With a twist to the "happy" endings, the characters we have all grown up to love or fear are stuck in time in a town waiting to be rescued. A little boy leaves to find the one person who can save them all from the evil witch's spell.  The story moves back and forth from the magical land of stories to the modern spell bound town. We follow Emma's quest to try to figure out what is going on with this community where she is supposed to be the savior they are all waiting for. Adorable Henry brings the cute factor through the roof. If you love fairy tales then tune in every Sunday and watch as our known characters such as Snow White and Cinderella are not quite as we know them to be :-) The show were recently picked up for a full season of 22 episodes and I couldn't be happier. It is fun to figure out who is playing what character, some easier to spot than others.

Up All Night -- A couple former SNL cast members appear on the show. Will Arnett and Christina Applegate play the married couple who loved to party and feel young and suddenly find themselves being thrown into parenthood. Together with Maya Rudolph this cast will sure make you spit milk (or wine or whatever beverage you prefer) through your nose! Maya is hilarious as is Will. The dynamic of the whole cast is fantastic and also we get to enjoy some crazy cute baby time. Who can say no to cute babies that we don't have to take care of but instead just watch as two parents crumble under the pressure of tending to a fragile soul. Pour yourselves a glass of whatever, put your feet up, and just enjoy!

2 Broke Girls -- I am not gonna lie, this show is staying alive solely on the awesome punch lines delivered by the cast. Do you really need anything else? You have a waitress with bad ass attitude who hates her job but has no choice but to serve other people at a diner run by a hilarious Asian man. She never fails to serve the meal with a side of bashing. Then you have a super rich girl gone poor after daddy was caught embezzeling money resulting in all assests being frozen and now this girl must work as a waitress. These girls find each other and move in, along with rich girl's horse. Yes, you read it correctly, she has a horse. How awesome isn't that?? Then we have the horny, I think Russian, chef who is always hitting on the girls while still making sure they are ok...awww. Then we have the hot love interest who is intrested but still...well it's complicated so you just have to watch the show. Of course we have many more characters but come on, I aint getting paid for this so do your own research :-P

Allen Gregory -- Jonah Hill. (ssshhhh no need to say anything else. ssshhh)

I am on the lookout for a few new shows such as Tim Allen's new show "Last Man Standing" which seems hilarious! I think we can expect it to be a bit like 8 Rules to Date My Daughter but still not. And then we have Jaime Pressly's new show "I Hate My Teenage Daughter". If the title doesn't intrigue you then I don't know what will. Consider yourself a lost cause. I'm just kidding. No, I am not. No, I am...or am I?

Of course there are soooo many more shows out there that I watch such as: The Mentalist, Bones, House, From Lark Rise to Candleford, Modern Family, The Middle, Secret Circle, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, and so maaaany moooore. How do I have time to do anything else you might ask yourself, well it is now 5 am and I am still wide awake. So, muchas gracias streaming links and good ol fashion Television.

I hope I have opened your eyes to at least one new show and more so I hope you enjoy em as much as I do. There is nothing like good entertainment that allows you to escape the lives you lead.

Until later my sweet friends
