Real World DC

In case you hadn't heard, the new season of Real World is being filmed in DC. Lucky for me, my sister lives there! Sweet!

Or not?

Check out this Anti- Real World Blog that is chronicling the castmates times in DC. Crowds following them around? Scheduled appearances? Everyone knows who they are apparnetly.

Oh, and here is a picture of the house!

LOST at Comic-Con

(according to the NY Times)

"Producers wanted to stir one fan conversation in particular: Will last season’s cliffhanger — the detonation of a nuclear bomb that the castaways hoped would scramble time — erase the post-crash existence depicted on the first five seasons of the show? Most of the teases turned on the idea that the crash of Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 never happened. In one video the big-bellied Hurley (Jorge Garcia) is shown in a commercial for a Mr. Cluck’s fried chicken restaurant once landing safely. In another an Oceanic flight attendant boasts of the carrier’s “perfect safety record.”

The biggest tease was Dominic Monaghan, whom producers brought onstage as a finale. Mr. Monaghan, who played the recovering drug addict Charlie Pace, drowned in the show’s third season but not before writing a message on his palm. As he waved to the crowd, eagle-eyed fans could see there was a new message inked on his hand: “Am I Alive?” (It was a busy convention for Mr. Monaghan. ABC announced there on Friday that he would be joining the cast of its new fall science fiction drama “Flash Forward.”)

Yet even as the “Lost” producers toyed with the audience they injected some doubt, something they often do on the show itself. Mr. Garcia, in a scripted bit from the audience, complained that if the bomb gambit worked and the castaways never crashed on the island, that “would be a real big cheat.” Mr. Lindelof agreed, assuring him that the producers knew that approach would be a cop-out. “Just trust us,” he said."


Fall Schedule!

So all this week I have been adding fall premiere dates to my calendar and it is starting to get overwhelming! These are just the shows I want to watch (I guess my HIMYM love will have to be pushed off for hiatus’. I just don’t have time!)

Sunday, 8/9

Sunday, 8/16
Mad Men, AMC 9pm

Monday, 8/31
Greek, ABC Family 8pm

Wednesday, 9/9
Glee, Fox 8pm

Monday, 9/14
OTH, CW 7pm

Thursday, 9/17
Community, NBC 8:30pm
Fringe, Fox 8pm

Monday, 9/21

Thursday, 9/24
Flashforward, ABC 7pm
Grey’s, ABC 8pm

Sunday, 9/27
Brothers and Sisters, ABC 9pm
Desperate Housewives, ABC 8pm
Dexter, Showtime 8pm

So you might be thinking, “Geez, Danielle. How in the world am I going to make this work?” Well, I will tell you. This is what I suggest.

Watch OTH at 7, followed by Greek at 8pm. DVR or catch DWTS online in time for the results shows on Tuesdays. CW and ABC Family both have sucky video players and it is hard to find episodes online.

DWTS day. I never cared much about the results show, but you can watch the show from the night before on DVR or online before you find out who gets kicked off!

Have a nice peaceful evening with Glee at 8pm. Oh, and catch up from some of that leftover Sunday television!

I’ll give first preference to the new shows- Flashforward at 7pm and Community at 8:30pm because they will need the ratings to survive. Although, that does give you an awkward half hour break… sheesh. If you have to watch one thing that night pick Grey’s at 8pm because it is by far the most popular and what people will be talking about. DVR Fringe or watch it online. It has too much suspense for commercials anyway!

Personally, I am watching ABDC at 8pm, followed by Brothers and Sisters at 9pm. I love Desperate but MTV’s video player is so slow. I can easily find Desperate online somewhere. The same goes for cable shows Mad Men and Dexter. Catch them later in the week.

Hope you weren’t planning to have a life this fall!

Emmy nominations!

So it has been forever since I last posted. Trust me, I am aware of that. I promise I will get back into it as soon as my regular line up of shows starts again (with the ABDC premiere on August 9th! yes!). But for now, I couldn't resist posting some of my thoughts on the Emmy nominees.

Actor in a Comedy Series: Jim Parsons as Sheldon on TBBT. Alec will probably win. But anyone who has seen TBBT knows Parsons is comedic genius.
Actress in a Comedy Series: Christina Applegat as Samantha on Samantha Who? I’ll admit. I do not even watch this show. But I am sick of Tina Fey winning every year. Plus I don’t think ABC should have cancelled Applegate’s show and this would be a nice slap in the face.
Actor in a Drama Series: Jon Hamm as Don Draper on Mad Men or Michael C Hall as Dexter on Dexter or Bryan Cranston as Walter on Breaking Bad. Please don’t ask me to choose.
Actress in a Drama Series: Elisabeth Moss as Peggy on Mad Men. Sally Field is a close second. The Walker kids had her in all sorts of drama this season and she handled it beautifully, but Mad Men is a better show and Moss deserves the accolades.
Animated Program: Robot Chicken because I like Seth Green.
Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series: 30 Rock. If five of their actors are nominated, that means something right?
Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series: True Blood. Since TB got left out of a lot this year, you gotta give ‘em this one.
Outstanding Choreography: Anything but Mia Michaels.
Outstanding Comedy Series: HIMYM. Hands down.
Outstanding Drama Series: Dexter, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, AND Lost? Win-win situation here.
Guest Actor in a Comedy: While I love love love Mr. Hamm, I gotta give it up to JT on SNL.
Guest Actor in a Drama: Jimmy Smits as Prado on Dexter was super creepy. He wins.
Guest Actress in a Comedy: Tina Fey as Sarah Palin on SNL better win. She changed the show, politics, pop culture…
Reality Host: Tom Bergeron of DWTS is a brilliant live host.
Main Title Design: Dexter is my all time fave, but since it isn’t nominated, my second all time fave True Blood better take it.
Reality Competittion: While I love DWTS, Top Chef and Project Runway feature way more talented contestants.
Reality Program: Dog Whisperer. I doubt it will win, but I can hope.
Supporting Actor in a Comedy: NPH for HIMYM. Duh.
Supporting Actor in a Drama: Michael Emerson rules as Ben Linus on Lost.
Supporting Actress in a Comedy: Please give it to Chenoweth for Pushing Daisies. It will forever be one of the greatest shows I have ever seen on television and ABC is so stupid for taking it away from me! She is a dream!
Supporting Actress in a Drama: Sandra and Chandra’s characters on Grey’s both evolved so much this season.
