a mishmash of thoughts April 15, 2010

Posted by Meg C in 24, Biggest Loser, Idol, Parenthood, Shows you should be watching, Survivor.

I don’t have a full recap of Idol because, well, I could’ve recapped that sucker for you before it happened.  Bad lip-synching, corny joke, Andrew and Katie bite the dust, tears, end scene.  But seriously, are the lip-synched group performances really necessary?  Do we all really need to pretend that Tim Urban can hit that low note?  I really have to watch Katie try to dance like Elvis?  Elliot freaking Yamin is sitting in the audience and I have to watch this junk?

But I also have thoughts on a few more shows that are rarely brought up on this here blog, even though I watch them religiously.  So there’s just some things I have to get off my chest.

24 (no spoilers):  I know I mentioned this yesterday but WHAT THE HECK.  I still am not over it.  I can’t believe it happened.  I won’t believe it happened.  I could cry if I think about it much longer.

The Biggest Loser:  Did you watch this week?  Did you absolutely weep when O’Neill won the car and Sunshine ran in?  I mean, one of the best moments on that show, ever.   EVER.  Although I haven’t watched the second hour yet, so don’t ruin it for me.

Survivor: Russell has become a swear word in my vocabulary.  I can’t believe he got rid of Boston Rob.  This all started with stupid Tyson being stupid and making one really stupid decision. 

I know what you’re all thinking: who even watches Survivor anymore?  Awesome people, that’s who.  This season is EPIC.  And just because it’s been on forever, doesn’t mean it’s any less awesome.  So lose the attitude and start watching.

Parenthood: I’ll admit I only started watching this show because Lorelai was in it.  But it has become a highlight of my week.  The cast is terrific – Dax Shepard, who knew? – and it’s pretty addicting once you figure out all the relationships between them.
