I don’t have patience for TV series. I forget schedules. I can’t take cliffhangers. And so what I do is forget about something I really like and when it’s all over, I get the DVD of the whole season and watch episode after episode until I get pissed because a cliffhanger at the end makes me want to teleport to the future just so I can see the next season.
In a way, this is the reason why I like series that have already marked the end of their run. Friends, Sex and the City, The Sopranos, Alias, Gilmore Girls, and many others. Well, if you haven’t seen CSI from season 1, then it’s also good. Bad if you work for a company or for the government because I remember calling in sick on a Monday night just so I could finish the last 4 episodes of the 4th season three years ago after going at it straight for almost 3 days.
I love the SHOWTIME series The Tudors. Not only because my mom infected me with that fondness for anything that involves monarchy, but because I looove Jonathan Rhys Myers. He was with Scarlett Johansson in that Woody Allen movie, Match Point. He’s not the conventionally good looking guy but he is HOT! Well, I am drawn to sexy sexy bad boys who have personal issues–he’s an alcoholic. Hehe. And having a looooooot of sexy scenes in both Match Point and The Tudors doesn’t help. LOL. Which is why, I can’t wait for the second installment. 2008 is inching up way tooooo slow for me. Peter O’Toole is set to join the cast, which makes it all the more interesting. Thing is, every time I see Peter O’Toole, I remember his scenes in Caligula and even if Malcolm McDowell topbilled that movie, I remember O’Toole more. I even had to watch that sick movie again when I realized that Helen Mirren was in there. Jeeez. Hehehe. I mean that movie was ok but, man, that was really just sick. I respect people’s sexual perspectives and their “methodology” but that movie was really disturbing. But then again, I think it had lots to do with Malcolm McDowell as well. He always makes movies and TV shows unforgettable everytime he figures in them.
I also love Grey’s Anatomy because Meredith Grey is clumsy and funny and real. And because I am in awe of doctors. I want to be one but I can never be one. Ugh! And of course, who wouldn’t love George O’Malley! Unless of course, you can’t separate the character from the real-life actor and you are a homophobe. I am also wowed by Addison Shepard. She’s the poster girl for glam. I can’t wait for Private Practice, Grey’s spin-off, to officially go on air and wrap up the first season at least, so I can watch the whole season uninterruptedly.
I love a**holes who play lead not only because I like the ATTITUDE! but because they justify my being a bitch in a way as well. LOL. And that is why I love Boston Legal, the awesome spin-off of The Practice, and House. Alan Shore reminds me of Napoleon Chotas, the lawyer of Constantin Demiris of Sidney Sheldon‘s The Other Side of Midnight and Memories of Midnight.
More of this later…
