Three Things I'm Loving This Thursday

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I really need to start doing this meme again, it helps me take stock of all the things I enjoy. This week I am loving...
  • Spoofs. Have you seen Brad Pitt's existential Chanel No.5 commercial? It's meant to be serious, but it's Hi-larious! I think they've pulled the ad spot after all the spoofs started showing up on YouTube. SNL did a whole series of them too. But my favorite is Kennel No.5 by the charity Pet Collective.

  • 1950s portable television set
    New TV Shows. It's been awhile since I got excited about the fall television season, but a few scripted shows have won me over this year: the military drama Last Resort on ABC, the juicy country music prime time soap Nashville also on ABC and FOX's adorkable The Mindy Project. I also watch on occasion: Guys with Kids (NBC) and Go On (NBC), but these comedies are a bit stiff and don't see them sticking around for long. Remember when NBC was the comedy king?!

  • GLEE. I hit a rough patch with my beloved musical-drama-comedy series. Too many transitions. Too many new faces. Rachel and Kirk in New York. But I should have been faithful. The how soon hit its stride and now they are preparing to perform Grease! I am shivering in anticipation, DVR at the ready. Grease is the word.

I've never even heard of Brad Pitt's existential Chanel No.5 commercial, which I guess shows how out of it I am. I did watch an adult television show for the first time in two years though. We watched Sherlock Holmes. It only took about two months of coordinating schedules to find the time to sit down together and watch the first episode. Of course, we streamed it on Netflix, so there were no commercials. Grease is also the motion, if I remember correctly. I love that movie!

Lol, I LOVE Mindy Project and Last Resort; and I'm a GUY! Mindy is hilarious, and I'm glad I gave it a shot, for it is exactly the kind of suburban, thirtysomething comedy I need after a long day working at DISH (surrounded by TV, lol). I got their Hopper HD DVR, and the PrimeTime Anytime feature is amazing. I set it to record, and it gets the entire primetime lineup on all four major networks! I never would have thought I'd get along with Mindy, but having all those recordings in my playlist made me take a chance; I'm very glad I DID!

Great list...I actually like the episode of Glee but then I don't watch it every week...the Kate Hudson character is a meanie!!

I was just saying yesterday that I have never seen Glee. that's what I've been doing daily when I don't get too busy, Instagram what I'm thankful for. its so easy to get sidetracked.
