2011 Movies!!

I love movies!!! I've been very happy with my Blockbuster online subscription. We've got so many great movies waiting in our Queue! Here are a few I'm excited about seeing in 2011!

I read this book earlier this year and it was just fabulous. I thought their choices of Robert Pattinson & Christoph Waltz were perfect! Reese Witherspoon was the only one I didn't picture like that, but she's such a great actress, I think she can do anything!

Lewis and I love all the Fast & Furious movies! We would see this even if it looked awful - but thank goodness it doesn't!! I'm excited that everyone is back in this one!

Jake Gyllenhaal is one of my faves. This looks pretty good! It definitely seems different to me, although it reminded Lewis of Quantum Leap. I've never seen that.

Kinda worried this one isn't gonna be good because the trailer has been out forever, but the movie isn't coming out until March 2011. I'm still gonna see it because I like Vanessa Hudgens & Mary-Kate Olsen.

I've mentioned this one before, but Lewis & I are both really pumped about it!! Girl power. LOL

I heart Amazon

Anybody wanna buy me an early Christmas gift??

Most of the shows I want on DVD are on sale right now on Amazon!!!

You could buy gifts for less than $30 & I'd think you spent $50! LOL

I'm only kidding, but those are still great deals on Amazon right now! Check them out!!

TV Update!!!!

Here's where I'm at right now in my shows:

I am definitely not on board with keeping couples apart in the TV shows. I'm really annoyed with it right now.

Grey's Anatomy - Seriously - Lexie & Sloan need to be together. Like yesterday.

Bones - There was a point where you should've finally gotten Bones & Booth together & that point was at the very latest sometime last season. Now you haven't done it & my husband will no longer watch your show with me. Jerks. I am holding on, but it's not really worth it.

90210 - Liam & Annie need to stop all this annoying back & forth "we like each other & then we don't" kind of junk.

Some things I'm happy with right now:
House & Cuddy are doing good. Relatively.
Elena & Stefan are staying strong in Vampire Diaries.
Meredith & Derek as well as Owen & Cristina are staying together.

Also, I love Mondo on Project Runway. He needs to win. Bad.

One thing I'm not okay with: political commercials. I have the weeks leading up to an election. Makes me want to throw things at the TV.

Fall Shows Premiere 2010 - Week 2

Last week The Ellen Degeneres show premiered & I loved seeing Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Mary-Kate & Ashley & Ben Affleck!! I missed Ellen this summer! In the 90210 premiere, I was really ready for Annie & Liam to get together & I'm kinda annoyed that they didn't. I don't enjoy the whole situation with Naomi for several reasons. Overall, though it was good. Gossip Girl was good, I just hate this Dan/Georgina/baby thing. Ick.

On Tuesday there was One Tree Hill, Life Unexpected & Parenthood! One Tree Hill was okay, but I'm still not 100% convinced that it's good that they are having another season. I hope it gets better. Next week is another of the episodes where they have someone in a coma or dead but they're walking around like they're all good. We've seen this with Keith & Karen & Lucas already before. We'll see how that goes. Life Unexpected was great! I surprisingly didn't see the Lux & her teacher thing coming. I want Cate & Baze to be together & I'm sort-of ok with Lux & Bug breaking up. Parenthood was pretty good. I just really like that show & I can't explain exactly why. It makes me happy!

This week is a big week for tv premieres! These shows are premiering:

How I Met Your Mother
The Event

Raising Hope

Modern Family
Cougar Town

The Big Bang Theory
$#*! My Dad Says
Grey's Anatomy
The Office

Saturday Night Life

Favorite Music Videos 2010

Watching the VMA's is making me think about  music videos this year. There have only been a couple of music videos that stuck out to me this year & that's probably because the first 2 weeks after Isis was born, I left the TV on AMTV2 all night, so videos were always playing when I woke up to feed Isis. Those were some rough nights with my baby blues & just being exhausted, but these videos made me feel better somehow! Now I think they'll always remind me of those nights with Isis & while at the time they were rough, looking back on it is great for me because they were my first days with my baby girl!

30 Seconds to Mars

Owl City


Kings of Leon
Sex on Fire

What were your favorite videos this year?

Fall Shows Premiere Week 2010 - Week 1

Last week Vampire Diaries Season 2 premiered on the CW. Hellcats and Nikita also had their series premieres on the CW! Vampire Diaries rocked my socks off! It was absolutely amazing - probably my favorite show on TV right now. Diana & I are now having Thursday night pajama parties watching it together at her house! Hellcats was ok. It wasn't my favorite & I'm giving it one more week. Nikita, on the other hand, didn't even last 10 minutes for me. I hated it from the very beginning. It will not be added as a permanent addition to my DVR.

This coming week these shows premiere:

The Ellen Degeneres Show
Gossip Girl

One Tree Hill
Life Unexpected

None of them are new series for me, so I'm pretty pumped about all of them!

Saddest character death

I made it through the meme!!! Here are my 5 saddest character deaths.

Buffy on Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I mean, come on. It's Buffy & she died! And we didn't know at the time that they were going to move the show to UPN so not only the viewers, but also the people who made the show thought this was the series finale! It was super sad.

Libby on Lost
We all thought that Hurley finally had a woman who loved him, so he'd have a girlfriend!! I'm pretty sure most people connected to that because Hurley is just so sweet! But then she gets accidentally shot by Michael & I cried.

Denny Duquette on Grey's Anatomy
I also included this scene in the best scene ever category. It was just heartbreaking! Denny was so lovable & such a great character on the show! I love that he's been back a few times, too. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is just awesome.

Joyce on Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Her actual death is shown at the end of I Was Made to Love You, but The Body is all about the death. Besides being super sad, I think that is one of the best episodes made on Buffy because it was just so different & so emotional. No music, lots of long takes. It was just really captivating.

Keith on One Tree Hill
I cannot even tell you how much I cried the first time I saw this episode. It was unbelievable. It really was shocking to me! We all still miss Uncle Keith!!

Current TV show obsession

There are a lot of shows that I watch regularly right now. But there are only 3 that I really think I could categorize as a current obsession.

This show makes me giddy.

I am a young adult vampire fan. No True Blood for me. This completely satisfies my TV vampire interest.

This show is hilarious. I laugh out loud at something in literally every episode & I can watch them over & over. I never get sick of them.

First TV Show Obsession

I think this was the first...

I LOVED this. I remember I was super excited before it even started & I watched it from the very first episode. I loved Dawson & Joey. I loved that her name was Joey. I thought it was so cool that she climbed in his window. It was all just super fun! I kinda fell off the bandwagon after a few seasons, though. I never was on board with the Pacey & Joey thing & I never saw the last couple of seasons. I really do need to pick it back up. I keep saying that!!

Best Pilot Episode

I'm making this short & sweet because my life is overwhelming me right now! haha!
These are the pilot episodes that had me hooked into the shows immediately.
(Again, obviously add Friends & Buffy to all my lists like this.)

OMG WTF? Season finale

Vampire Diaries - Season 1
I freaked out when Elena was Katherine & Damon kissed her & she chopped off the dude's fingers, etc. It was just all crazy.

Big Love - Season 4
Bill wins the election & comes out as a polygamist. J.J. is doing all kinds of crazy in-vitro inbreeding craziness & Adaleen sets fire to his fertility clinic office. Oh my gosh.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Season 2
Buffy kills Angel right after his soul is restored. Then she leaves. We all cry & wonder what will happen the next season.

Gossip Girl - Season 3
Chuck was shot!!

Friends - Season 4
Ross says Rachel in his vows at his wedding to Emily. OMG

A show you plan on watching (old or new)

I shared a post earlier this summer with the new fall shows I plan on watching. Here's a show we've been meaning to watch for a while now. I know it's ridiculous we haven't been watching it already!

30 Rock
I know, you're shocked. I really need to watch it ASAP.

Best quote

There are so many quotes that I love from TV shows! I could pick a couple of Grey's Anatomy ones & of course some Friends quotes. Sex and the City has great quotes!! But the only one that stuck out right off the top of my head was the one at the end of the school shooting episode of One Tree Hill. I think that's saying something, so I decided I'd just go with that.

"Does this darkness have a name? This cruelty, this hatred, how did it find us? Did it steal into our lives or did we seek it out and embrace it? What happened to us that we now send our children into the world like we send young men to war, hoping for their safe return, but knowing that some would be lost along the way. When did we lose our way? Consumed by the shadows. Swallowed whole by the darkness. Does this darkness have a name? Is it your name?"
One Tree Hill
With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept

Most annoying character

Gossip Girl
She just gets on my nerves every time she's on the show. I feel like she's unnecessary & always creates drama that I don't want to be there.

One Tree Hill
I kinda think she's a bad actress & I just didn't like a lot of her storylines.

She's way too whiney.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Again, whiney! Maybe I just don't like Michelle Trachtenberg. 

Dr. Erica Hahn
Grey's Anatomy
I just don't like this actress & I didn't think she went well with Callie & it was just all really awkward when she was around. I was never a big fan of her being introduced as a real character that we're actually supposed to like.

Favorite series finale


I don't think I can avoid doing Friends or Buffy for this one because most of my favorite shows are still on the air, so these are the only 2 that have actual series finales. And I didn't love the Lost series finale enough to put it on here.

I love the Friends finale because it's just really funny. There are several quotes from Friends that Lewis & I both still quote on a regular basis that came from the series finale. I love that Chandler & Monica have the babies & Ross & Rachel get together! Phoebe is so happy she's singing like in a musical! It's just a great episode.

I love the Buffy finale because it's like girl power to the highest degree. I love the whole part at the very end where all the girls from all different places are standing up & becoming slayers & realizing that they can take on the world. I love that Spike sacrifices himself & that Buffy finally tells him she loves him (and I believe she really does). It is awesome!!

Favorite relationship

Apparently on other 30 Days of TV memes, this one is called "favorite ship." I think that's stupid. So it's favorite relationship on my blog. Again, I have a top 10 in no particular order. And by the way - I'm having a hard time with all these favorite whatevers. I've already thought of like 10 more favorite kisses that could've fit somewhere in my top list from yesterday!! It's so hard to pick!!!

Mark Sloan & Lexie Grey
Grey's Anatomy
I've already said that I love that he goes from a major player just going from girl to girl & not really caring about anybody to being totally changed by his relationship with her. I'm all about that.

Buffy & Spike
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I have always been a little more partial to the relationship between Buffy & Spike over her & Angel because Spike chooses to be good based on his observance of how Buffy lives. Angel is cursed, not making a choice.

Buffy & Angel
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
They were the original. Forget Bella & Edward or Elena & Stefan. Buffy & Angel were the original human/vampire couple for me & I love it!

Booth & Brennan
Seriously, these two have got to get together soon or I'm going to stop watching the show. Okay, that's not true, but I'm going to keep threatening!

Nathan & Haley
One Tree Hill
I like it that they got together in the first season & have been through a bunch of crap, but are still together almost 8 years later!! It's awesome. I am not one who likes when TV shows bounce people from relationship to relationship. I think it's great shows that can make one relationship work over that amount of time.

Jim & Pam
The Office
They are just the sweetest. I don't know how to even begin to describe why I love them except that they are just so sweet! It's really cute.

Monica & Chandler
They complement each other perfectly! He's quirky & funny & she's neurotic & organized. It's lovely.

Rachel & Ross
They were just meant to be together. What more can you really say?

Rachel & Joey
I was definitely on board with Joey & Rachel & actually would've been ok with them ending up together rather than Rachel & Ross. But I would've been fine either way I think.

This last spot is a toss-up between Chuck & Blair from Gossip Girl and Carrie & Big from Sex & the City. You pick.
