Summer Shows

So we all know there's a serious slump when it comes to Summer tv. Which actually can be a good thing, maybe we could actually get something done during "prime time". But these shows are getting me through my summertime blues (i.e. no 30 Rock, Office, or House). Re-runs of this: da-da. (That's supposed to be the sound effect from Law & Order) I love this show, what can I say, figuring out "who did it", than the great angles the D.A.'s come up with to convict the criminals, even when obstacles come up. Oh, and they will come up, you can count on it.

This reality show really sucked James and I in a few years back, and if you're curiosity gets the better of you, we have it on DVD.

The equation: Corbin Bernsen + Stephen Baldwin + Kathy Griffin = pure hilarity, you wouldn't think so, but really...

So imagine how excited I was when I heard they were doing the Mole again. A bit disappointing it wasn't "Celebrity" Mole, but we were definitely going to give it a try. And if you have any doubts about its entertainment value, just picture this guy:

Being pushed in a wheelbarrow by this girl:

because his muscles were sore from a soccer game the day before. I don't think I can describe how pathetic/comical this incident was.

Anywho, those are the shows I'm currently watching, what about you?

We're watching So You Think You Can Dance and I'm embarrassed to say I am also watching The Bachelorette!

You guys HAVE to add So You Think You Can Dance. It sounds horrible, but it is so good, even Dave likes it (if that will help sell it to James). And you better believe we will be watching it in Coronado.

Just kidding.

Or am I?

we loved celebrity mole, too!

So You Think You Can Dance is pretty good, but I'm kinda getting sick of the whole star search genre.
One reality show that you HAVE to watch is Flipping Out on Bravo. Imagine a gay, OCD real estate investor in LA with his 3 personal assistants (who he makes take his dog to a psychic and masseuse), housekeeper and ex-boyfriend- it's pure drama. I love it!!
I haven't seen Celebrity Mole, but how can you not love anything with Kathy Griffin in it??!

You guys got Jeff and I hooked. We're watching it this season. Although it's not quite the same without the celebrities.

I am in a summer TV slump big time! I haven't found anything I'm really into yet. We've resorted to watching reruns of The Office, King of Queens, and the other night I started watching Felicity again. I have been checking out past Masterpiece Theatres though and those have been fabulous!

Thanks for the t.v. advice. If you want some recommendations, we like to rent the DVD's and watch our shows that way. Two that we have loved are Veronica Mars and Friday Night Lights. I highly recommend both.
