Second Sight (BBC)

Been watching this BBC crime drama series about (described on netflix as “absorbing”…eeehhh…not really all that absorbing) -Det. Ross Tanner, played by Clive Owen back before he had giant white caps put on his teeth, is going blind because of some weird eye disease thing.  Aren’t we a bit tired of all the different gimicks writers use to make the detective story “fresh”?  —The crimes in this series are fairly easy to figure out ahead of time and not very interesting….Clive is the only thing really making it worth while to follow….but I tell you, if you want a BBC crime drama, check out Wire in the Blood.

Wire in the Blood (finished series)

Was a great series.  Sad to be done with it.  I hope they give us a season 7 one of these days.  Dr. Tony Hill was one of my favorite TV characters.  And I learned a bit about psy profiling.  I didn’t care as much about the who done it of the crimes as much as I enjoyed watching Tony figure it all out using psychology.

Jersey Shore

I’m from (and live) in the Southern US…so we have our fair share of “types.”….so it is interesting to me to watch these “Guido” Jersey types doing their thing….but I can’t decide if I like this reality show or not.  I think I wonder about the “reality” of it.  I think I’d rather see them documentary style in their natural habitat instead of “Real World” put into a house together with a hot tub to see how much sexual drunken fighting drama crap breaks out.  Seems like they’re fitting all the drama in fast!  But…maybe that’s how it goes wth Guidos….I’m still watching.  Can’t believe some guy punched a girl in the face!

Wire in the Blood –Season 4

I’ve finished season 4 and if not for my total love of the character Dr.Hill and the drool factor for the actor who plays him (Robson Green), I wouldn’t have watched this season out of spite!  They took Carol off….the flirtations between Dr.Hill and Carol were great and I am pissed they dropped that storyline.

The It Crowd: Series 2 episode 1

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia BBC version

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia BBC version

I’m on my fourth glass of wine and started this show with episode one of series 2 so I thought it was chuckle worthy…reminded me a LOT of It’s Always Sunny and a bit like Flight of the Concords minus the singing ……I’ll try a few more episodes….let’s start at the beginning shall we?

The Rachel Zoe Project

That's bananas!

That's bananas!

BRAVO –In this episode, Taylor is the only one with organization and cool…the one who never makes mistakes and knows it all….Brad feels he’s doing his best and it isn’t appreciate…Brad and Taylor squabble….Rachel is tired and stressed and busy busy…A celebrity pops in…..oh yeah…that is EVERY episode!!!  That’s the most annoying part of this show….the noticable formula and the feeling that some dramas are a bit staged or at least played up for the camera.  Other than that I really enjoy it….love all the dresses and shoes and bags and the fantasy of having Rachel’s job 🙂  It’s mindless fun but I dig it.
