TV talk

I just read an article that said Bret Favre was debating on not retiring now, that he was in talks with other teams besides Green Bay. I said when he announced his retirement that I wasn't holding my breath about it. I was being cynical about it because of the last time he said he was retiring and didn't. He still has never given his written notice to the league, so see, until it's official official I'm not buying it.

In more happy news, Battlestar Galactica starts back up tomorrow night. This is one of the best shows on TV. My emotions are mixed though because although I'm very excited that it's starting back up I'm saddened because it's the final season but then we're going to find out all the answers we've been wanting so I'm right back up again. It's a roller coaster that's for sure.

While we were out sick we caught up on everything we had DVR'd since January or was it December? I'm not sure now, I just know some of the shows were recorded while the writers strike was still going on. We cleared out everything but 3 movies and finally decided to try Torchwood which we had from Netflix. We had the first 3 discs of the 1st season but we only got through the third show before we decided not to watch anymore. It wasn't that it was bad, because it wasn't, it was actually pretty good. But after watching one show we didn't want to immediately watch another one we did just because that's all we had. We both agreed that although it was a pretty good show we could take it or leave it so we decided to leave it and try the next one. Sorry Natalie, I know you like it.

I've heard such great things about Freaks and Geeks and Entourage and I have both in my queue. I'm thinking I'll go with F & G first though since there's only one season of it or are there two? I can't remember now how many seasons it lasted before it was canceled. Anyway, we'd be able to fly through those and get to Entourage and try it out to see if it's worth watching. I really love me some Jeremy Piven. He used to be on my list of 5 for the longest time. Ok, I went and fixed my queue to go with Freaks and Geeks first. I forgot I also have The Tick on there too. Loved that cartoon and I think we only saw an episode or two of the live action show but we both like Warburton so I'm a little excited to watch it also. I might have to go to that one before Entourage also.

And what the hell happened to Lost? I didn't know they were going to go on hiatus this season. I thought since it was a shortened season it was going to run straight through to the end but nope, hasn't been on for the last few weeks. Just went to their website and they're not scheduled to return until the 24th! Unreal! Whatever.

What else, oh yeah, Jericho has been canceled. But we sort of knew that was coming. We're just glad that the fans were able to bring it back for the shortened season to be able to resolve everything and have it end in a way that could have left it open if it got renewed but still resolved everything else in a way that was good enough in case it wasn't. I hate when shows get canceled without being able to resolve things, sucks big time.

We've been rewatching Friends. I had actually done it from the beginning last summer and got as far as 1/2 way through the 9th season but for some reason didn't finish. So while sick I finished them up. I convinced HDiTty to rewatch them so I've been watching them again with him. I still laugh just as hard, such a great show.

I've been wanting to rewatch Buffy and Angel too but we don't own those so I'm thinking we need to go out and buy 'em. I have 100 bucks burning a hole in my pocket that I received for my birthday (isn't that nice, I'm 38 and I still get money for my birthday!) and I haven't made up my mind what I want to use it on. I've gone back and forth between the latest seasons of Gray's Anatomy and Battlestar or both even but I'm thinking either Buffy or Angel would be better. I could get a whole series instead of just one season, sure I'd have to kick in some of my own money but that's ok. Or even better yet, if they're at Border's Bookstore I have two gift cards for there also so I wouldn't have to kick in any of my own money. Hmmm, I'm going to have to seriously think on this.

Media quote of the day: I am the wild blue yonder. The front line in a never-ending battle between good and not-so-good. Together with my stalwart sidekick, Arthur, and the magnanimous help of some other folks I know, we form the yin to villany's malevolent yang. Destiny has chosen us. Wicked men, you face The Tick. - The Tick

I've been watching Torchwood and really like it a lot. Freaks and Geeks is more fun to watch than Entourage but I love both shows SO much. I picked up a season of Angel at a used music store for $20 check around.

I've read such good things about both shows, I'm really looking forward to them. F & G came in the mail on Saturday be we haven't had a chance to start in on them yet. Hopefully we will sometime this week.

I never thought to check out the used places, I'll have to do that.
