I watch TV and write about it. Sometimes I watch movies too.



Weekend Roundup: TGIT recaps

Let’s just say that out of the three TGIT shows, Bones closely resembled the fake-turkey Brennan wanted to serve for Thanksgiving, Grey’s Anatomy was the staple heaping pile of stuffing everyone loves, and HTGAWM… well, it’s like that godawful yam/marshmallow casserole that I still can’t wrap my brain around why is has a place on the dinner table and isn’t served as dessert: some people seem to love it; I just have no appetite for the stuff.

Grey’s Anatomy: death & sex & freaking out

A few minutes into ‘Old Time Rock ‘n Roll‘ we had a pretty good idea the episode was going to be all about sex.

Instead of having fish nibble on the dead skin of their feet, which is pretty gross in an of itself if you ask me, one of them gets her foot lodged in a floating skull. Yuck. I think we should really give the writers props for continuously coming up with new disgusting ways to discover the bodies. Keep Reading!

Catching up with last week’s episodes: Bones


If last week’s HTGAWM episode seemed to be heading in the right direction, and Grey’s Anatomy was perfectly fine, Bones’s second episode of the season doesn’t fare as well. Is it possible the show has jumped the shark, or am I just being grumpy?

Episode 2 contained zero surprises, really. Well, maybe one. Let’s take it from the top:

Catching up with last week’s episodes: Grey’s Anatomy

Continuing our TGIT recaps, and since I rambled on and on about HTGAWM, I’ll keep Grey’s Anatomy short and sweet.

I know I’m a little late for the TGIT roundup, but I have a perfectly good excuse.
