I refuse to write anything else…

…until someone joins in my conversation about the new fall season of shows. This is my passion people! And you aren’t getting any more from me until you comment. This includes you "A Huge Fan" let me know what you really thought. This also includes you family. There is now an embargo on Nathan pictures, and don’t go trying to get around it through Meredith either. I am taking away her camera card reader until the embargo is lifted.

    OK, I’ll bite.

    Studio 60 – haven’t seen an entire episode, just small bits and pieces. I’m sure Amanda Peet is doing well, but it’s hard for me to get over the image of her in the upstairs window in "The Whole Nine Yards". (If you’re a guy, and have seen the movie, you know what I’m talking about.) It’s not that I’m a perv or anything, but like you said, that just happens to be the role that I first saw her in, so it stuck. She’ll always be that girl.

    Heroes – watched the premier, it was pretty good. Very X-Mennish though, I keep expecting the characters to throw on some Spandex and come up with cool nicknames for themselves. Mix this show with some adamantium and a guy that got bit by a radioactive octopus, and I think you’d have something.

    All I’ve seen is "Dancing with the Stars". Can tell you from that, Sara Evans is smoking hot! Hope this helps.

    Dancing with the stars? Really?

  4. Andrew says:

    All right you got me…. I want Emmitt Smith to win, but Mario Lopez is a favorite, too…even though he’s always breaking the rules. Harry Hamlin got hosed this week b/c America wants to see Jerry Springer learn to Waltz for his daughter’s wedding. If Sara Evans opens another button, she just might win, although she’s got some stiff comp from the other ladies. BTW, I’m still in love with Cheryl Burke from last season with Drew Lachey.

    I’m pretty stoked about Jim coming back to Scranton tomorrow night. Go Jim and Pam!!!

    Gotta get back to my Law and Order reruns on USA.

    Can we see more Nathan pictures now?

  6. The Average Youth Minister says:

    Seriously, there is a new Aaron Sorkin drama on, along with a whole host of well written shows that don’t assume that you have an IQ below that of a houseplant and you guys are talking about Dancing with the Stars! These are the storytellers of our time and you are watching people who can’t dance try to dance!

  7. -B says:

    Actually, Mario Lopez is a heck of a dancer. I just keep waiting for Joey Lawrence to bust out with a "Whoa!" I concur with Andrew on the "opens another button" take.

    Who’s Aaron Sorkin? Is that Donna from 90210’s dad? I thought he died.

  8. The Average Youth Minister says:

    I think my heart just broke a little. You cannot compare Aaron Spelling (sp?) to Aaron Sorkin. One makes soap operas and the other wrote The American President and the West Wing! Ugh!

    this really touched me..BRAVO!! BRAVO!!

    I watched Heroes monday and really enjoyed it, enough to overlook the obvious downsides of a pilot episode. It made me think of a show that was on probably 15-20 years ago, I think it was called "Misfits." A bunch of teens (maybe older/younger) that never fit in anywhere else, but found each other and discovered their exeptional abilities. Does anyone else remember this show?
    I’ve been working 2 full time jobs and going to school full time for the past 2 years, so I’m just getting back to TV, and from what I had seen, I was afraid there were no more REAL TV shows. Reality TV is sad. They victimize people and humilite them for the entertainment of non-compassionate America. And those of us who watch such shows should be ashamed of ourselves for treating these poor peoples’ misfortune as entertaining. There are some "reality" shows that do show the good side of the coin, but very few.
    Anyway, I really posted this to see if anyone remembered Misfits; didn’t mean to rant about crappy TV.

  11. Pastor C says:

    sorry I can’t spell . . . should have previewed the post.
    humilite should read "humiliate" . . .I think :)

  12. The Average Youth Minister says:

    Are you talking about Misfits of Science? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misfits_of_Science It stared a young Cortney Cox who could use her mind to make things happen, and that really cool dude who could suck power out of things and shoot it at people, but who got hurt by water. (I remember him getting burned by water more than once)

    It was in those old days of TV when there were a ton of those superpower type shows. Anyone remember Manamal or Atom Man? Maybe not Atom Man, it was the one where the guy was made by a computer and had a cursor that could draw things like his cool glowing car.

  13. Betsy says:

    I am glad you all are talking about fall t.v. shows. Has anyone been watching the Amazing Race this season? The show has a couple from a coal mining town in KY. Of all the people that auditioned for the show, why did they have to pick this couple.

  14. The Average Youth Minister says:

    Death to reality shows! Of all of them I guess Amazing Race is the best, but still DEATH TO REALITY SHOWS!

  15. Betsy says:

    You have to watch one episode just to see that couple before you claim death to all reality shows. The other couples are cheerleaders, beauty queens, models, and then the coal miners from KY. We need better representation from KY on tv.

  16. Pastor C says:

    Shane, I’m not sure if that was it or not. (and you’re posting links, are you any relation to "Huge Fan"?) It’s probably about the right time frame. I don’t remember "Monica" being in it though (her first role i remember her in :) ) I can’t remember much about it except that for some reason I keep picturing a the kid with glasses from the original Bad News Bears only with long hair. I know that must sound weird but . . .

  17. Nathan's Mom says:

    Betsy, I’ve been watching Amazing Race and if that was the only people from Kentucky I’d ever seen I don’t know that I’d have married someone from Kentucky. Of course, I’m from Alabama and we don’t have the greatest representatives on TV either, except for Courtney Cox.

  18. Andrew says:

    I came here looking for good commentary on the new fall TV lineup. Am I in the right place? There was a new show on NBC tonight…Studio 18 or something, I tried to watch it during the Bachelor commercials, but it didn’t look that good. Anybody else?

  19. Betsy says:

    They had to pick the worst couple from KY to be on the show. I was hoping they would be off the show this week but they are still there. They are probably going to win. Meredith, I think you and Shane should apply for the upcoming Amazing Race.

  20. -B says:

    I haven’t seen 30 seconds of Amazing Race. However, if Shane’s on it, I am so there. Did TiVo Heroes last night, and watched a little of it. Maybe I’ll catch on.

    Sorry, can’t type more right now. Dancing With the Stars is on at 7, and I’ve gotta whip up a couple of Go Sara! posters.
