The purpose....

Of this blog is to discuss what's going on TV and pop culture. I'll be sharing one guy's view from the couch and see what's on the minds of the few folks who happen to wander onto this site.

I hope I'll entertain and enlighten while I rant, rave, and reveal what I think about what's going on the boob tube. (I never liked that name, because now more than ever, there's a LOT of smart TV on the networks).

It's the most wonderful time of the year for those of us who are addicted to TV. My poor DVR is going to explode with all the choices this season. I've gone through my Entertainment Weekly and read every story I could get my hands on to help me choose what I'm going to watch this TV season.

I tried to check out "Vanished" but I was bored after a few minutes. So poof! I'm gone. I'm going to go on a limb and say this show will be one of the first few casualties of the season. But then again, the WB's "Twins" managed to stay on a long time despite the poor concept.

A TV show I know I shouldn't be watching is "Celebrity Duets." My God, that show is awful like a five-car train wreck but I CAN'T STOP WATCHING!

I keep waiting to see who's going to crack first. Marie Osmond or Little Richard. Marie talks waaay too much and Little Richard is on crack. I mean no one understands a word he's saying. I don't know if he's senile or what but he needs to be yanked off that show with a quickness. I'm rooting for Jai Rodriguez because at least he has a bit of a voice ad so does Alfonso Riberio but the rest are awful.

Carley Patterson needs to cartwheel her butt out of there and Cheech Marin is hor-ri-ble. I suspect he'll be the next to go. Lucy Lawless needs to work on her voice but she's got the look. Hal Sparks keeps yelling at the audience and yelling and singing isn't quite the same thing.

"Nip/Tuck" started last week and it's going to be awesome. Christian attracted to Sean? Christian might be gay? I know that'll get the gay audience in but at the same time, practically everyone I know who's gay is ALREADY watching so I don't quite know what purpose this serves.

I'm looking forward to the return of "Deal or No Deal." My partner and I stood in line for three hours to try out for that show when it was here in San Diego. After that, we got asked one question "What would you do with $1 million?" I fumbled an answer out so I know they weren't impressed because I've not heard from them since.

I cannot wait to see "Heroes." I saw a preview of the first episode at Comic-Con and can't wait to see the finished project. "Ugly Betty" looks interesting but it has Vanessa Williams and after her last show tanked, I hope that the cancellation stink/curse will be gone from her.

"Kidnapped" look as if it could be the next "24" because of the concept. Jeremy Sisto has some big shoes to fill in because no one can replace Jack Bauer!

I'm breaking up with "Lost," because last season was waay too frustrating. I'm iffy on "Desperate Housewives." I'm going to give it three episodes and that's it.

Tomorrow I'm going to try to lobby some support for a show you should be watching. Here's a hint: Tuesday nights at 9 and the new CW!
