Things Have Been Crazy and TV Has Been Slacking…

I promise I will get everything squared away by the weekend, but for now don’t talk to me about:

  • Ugly Betty
  • Biggest Loser
  • Parenthood
  • The Pacific
  • Treme
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Tina Fey on SNL
  • Nurse Jackie
  • Glee
  • RuPaul’s Drag Race
  • Criminal Minds

Soon I will get my shit together (except tonight is going to be bad…  Glee, LOST and Biggest Loser…  c’mon!)


What’s with the Possums?

Did anyone else notice that NBC had two shows both featuring possums this week?  (Parenthood and Parks & Recreation)  What’s up with that?


Warm & Fuzzies

I’m still not completely sold on NBC’s Parenthood, but for some reason I got the warm and fuzzies during the pot smoking scene between the brothers and sisters.  Anyone else?


Thumbs Up


I watched it last night (well really early this morning) and so far so good.  It is a show with an ensemble cast (which I’m becoming more and more of a fan of) so the first episode inevitably had several introductions to make.

First off Peter Krause, oh how I have missed you!  I like to see you as the family glue and cannot wait to see how your character develops.  I enjoyed Erika Christensen’s character, Julia and want to see what happens with her relationship with her daughter and of course there is Dax Shepard as  Crosby.  I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so I’ll just say I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with his character.  Also welcome back Lauren Graham.  I love her but I want to see a little less Lorelai Gilmore (I also kept trying to think of Maura Tierney in the role…  I don’t know if I would have believed it)

A couple of notes:

  • I want that house
  • I enjoyed the music they had and how they used it
  • The mom kind of seems more like a step-mom than a mom
  • This kind of reminds me of the movie, The Family Stone (Craig T. Nelson also plays dad)

I will be watching next week.  Let’s hope this keeps getting better and better.

Watch Parenthood Tuesday at 10pm EST on NBC

Note:  Nora O’Brien (who the pilot was dedicated to) was an executive at NBC who died on the set of Parenthood in April 2009.


Lauren Graham Come Back…

So Parenthood premieres tonight on NBC at 10pm EST.  I’m excited because I miss Lauren Graham on television, but I’m nervous.  Why?  Well because every preview makes the show look like a slightly more serious version of Modern Family.

Originally Lauren Graham’s role was supposed to be played by Maura Tierney, but she had to drop out for health reasons.  This pushed production back, but apparently the show is supposed to be good *fingers crossed*

There was good news for the show as it was set to premiere this fall, but with the changes it was pushed back.  I’m just hoping Ron Howard does not let me down…

Parenthood on NBC premieres tonight at 10pm EST

And We’re Back!
