What I'm Watching on #Netflix

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

This week's picks from Netflix Instant Watch:

TV Show:
Nip/Tuck.Thank you Kia for recommending this show! The pilot grabbed me like that alligator and did not let go! A pair of hotshot Miami plastic surgeons deal with the pitfalls of success. One is an aggressive, skirt-chasing, unethical boar and the other is a passive, unhappily married, perfectionist bore. Their contentious partnership makes for great television. I am hooked!


Movies:
Morning Glory.I adore Rachel McAdams and think she is a great actress, so it pains me to see her in a movie role meant for a C-list actress. McAdams plays a 28-year-old television producer married to her job. She attempts to rescue a failing network morning show by recruiting a grumpy, veteran journalist played by Harrison Ford. Diane Keaton plays his co-anchor and they do not get along. It's not that the movie is terrible, it's just a lightweight comedy that is beneath these heavyweight actors. I kept expecting to see Ashton Kutcher show up as the boyfriend.

I thought that Morning Glory was a cute movie. I enjoyed it. I haven't ever seen Nip/Tuck. I recently started watching Warehouse 13 episodes on Netflix.

Nip/Tuck rocked! Forewarning - it does start to get (even) crazier after Season 3. The Mister liked it but eventually bailed on it because he felt it was too much. After years of watching, I had to see it through to the end.

They were showing Season one on TV the other night and I was all over it. I need to start watching from the start again.

Oh, I am sad to hear that Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford were also in such a disappointing movie. Someone had to work hard to make a bad movie with a cast like that!

I watched the first season of nip tuck. The doctor in it has the same name as my Shaune - SHaune McNamara.
