Be a Tool To Play a Tool


True Blood: I must admit a few annoyances with the show. I’m sick of Sookie fawning over Bill all the time but then I’m just not a fan of them together. I have grown to love Bill’s new sidekick Jessica, she’s totally fucking insane, which I love of course. I’m still kind of thrown by Maryann but the pieces are coming together. Poor Sam, he just can’t catch a break can he?

Mad Men: I just finished season 2 (season 3 starts in August) and one thing I really love about this show is it doesn’t try to shove too much down your throat every episode. They take their time, they let their characters develop. I think the show itself is a lot like the time it is set in. People then didn’t scream and shout, they brooded. As a viewer I’m always trying to figure out what is going on in everyone’s head because they don’t let you in easily.

So You Think You Can Dance: It’s just not doing it for me this year. I mean I like the routines and all but there isn’t anyone I really love on the show like I have in past seasons. Now I just dvr the show and skip past all the extra stuff so I can watch the dancing.

Entourage: I was left alone the other week and got bored. I couldn’t watch Mad Men or House because I had to wait for Manly Man to get back. So I ended up watching Entourage (I know, for shame) and I definitely don’t like the characters, they are just annoying. The only good thing about the show is Jeremy Piven. He plays a tool so well but probably because he is one in real life.

    I’m with you on SYTYCD. It’s kind of blah this season. At this point, I like all of them, so I don’t care who makes it to the final, because they’re all kind of equal.

      @Amanda, I am always a fan of the nerdy boy though, I can’t help that so I do like Evan but not like I liked Benji or Neil.

    True Blood:the drinking game….drink every time (1) Sookie says “oh Bill” (2) Anyone says “Sookie’s in danger” – or any variation of that. (3) Anyone has sex (4) anyone says “I must be out of my mind.

    I have yet to see how an episode ends. But I love that show!!!

    In the books, Sookie and Bill get in quite a fight, and I think it might be coming up in the show, thanks to his maker showing up.

      @Avitable, I can only hope.

    I’ve been enjoying Breaking Bad, which I think appeals more to people who have been critically ill (especially with cancer) and can identify with the main character.

      @Grant, I am critically ill, but only in the mental way.
