Mr Magic

Speaking of TV programs, they're reviving the once-popular shows Heroes and 24.

 

What's the point of doing a series finale if the show is going to be revived anyway?

Heroes didn't really have a series finale. I think the way the final show played out, there was the intention of it running another season.

Too bad about Raising Hope. Well it lasted longer than the last show Garret Dillahunt was in.

Man!  Will Greg Garcia ever get to finish a show?

Here's something:  Mrs steak gets surprised by shows a lot.  I'm often willing to check out a new show, and she complains about them...until she starts hearing funny or interesting parts.  Offhand, I remember her turning around on

Breaking Bad
She thought it was incredibly boring until the 5th(?) episode, when Walt throws the magnesium)

Brooklyn Nine Nine
On SNL, she finds Andy Samberg's goofball schtick incredibly grating.  But the ensemble cast has drawn her in and she's over the Samberg thing.  This show is still low priority for her, but at least she's stopped asking "why are you watching that that's stupid" and actually laughs at parts.

Glee
I don't remember why she thought this one would suck, but it became must watch for both of us.  We've been well over it since a few episodes into season three, but those first two seasons were great.

shakin: I don't suppose you've heard the routine that Jim Gaffigan did on people and McDonalds? I just remember he was giving people who think they're "better" than McDonalds a real raking, and then mentions that even if you don't eat at McDonalds... you still have your "OWN" McDonalds.

It could be Starbucks, US Weekly Magazine, or watching Glee.

"It feels good goin' down."

and then later...

"I think I'll kill myself."

Well Greg Garcia is working on The Millers now. Personally I don't care for that show. 

Glee was awesome for the first season. To me season 2 was "The Kurt show". By season three the show sorta redeemed itself. The show really took a blow after the death of Cory.

Umm...?  If it was in the "Mr Universe" special, then yes, I did.  I guess I don't remember it though.  Is this about shame, or is it about really being no better than anybody else? 
I guess my low moments of consumption are frozen Michelina pasta trays and too much TV in general.

eh?


*googles*

The Millers airs Thursdays at 8:30 (ET/PT) on CBS, following The Big Bang Theory.

Um, yeah, I am not watching that.

Yeah. The Mr. Universe special was the one. I think it was in sticking with his persona as a McDonalds aficionado and him railing on people who say "I would never eat at MCDONALDS", but then go pick up some rumor mag or watch brain dead television.

Well, I guess McDonald's and Glee do both come with a lot of cheese...

Here is one that I have been digging recently...



I've seen many Scooby-Doo shows through the years (since the original run), but this one is by far the best. Though the artwork has that simplistic, squarish look to it, the stories are well done, and there is an overarching story that continues to play out that is very intriguing, even to an adult.

The original voice cast are present here, though mostly as the gangs parents, instead of the gang themselves (with the exception of Fred, who is still voiced by Frank Welker).

This is a great show that took me by surprise. Check it out on NetFlix if you get the chance.
