some random television thoughts

What is UP with "Studio 60"? When this show debuted, I really liked it, but the more I watch it, the more it's really starting to annoy me. The language - the way people speak - is just sooooo...contrived. And everyone seems so self-righteous. I swear, if Greg didn't like this show, I wouldn't watch it at all. I still watch it because it's one of the few things we enjoy(ed) together. But seriously, Aaron Sorkin, get over yourself.

The big "Top Chef" finale is on tonight. Because the webmasters over at Food and Wine magazine obviously can't handle themselves, they accidentally managed to post an article about the winner (one of the prizes is a feature about the winner in that magazine) online for about 15 minutes the other day before they realized their mistake and took it down. So, yeah, I now know who wins. I will not comment on that, but I will comment on how disappointed I am with the cast this year - the only reason I'm happy Marcel made it to the end is because the rest of the cast just basically acted like douchebags the whole time. Focus on the food, people. So, once again, I get to the finale of a show and ultimately don't really care what happens. But I'll watch, of course, however probably not until tomorrow, since I already know who wins.

This is perhaps the most painful of my TV thoughts - I don't really care about the return of "Lost" next week. It's so crazy because I basically lived for this show two years ago, and now...meh. I'll watch it, sure, but I recently read an interview with one of the creators who said that they are going to focus much more on the relationships now, and less about the mysteries on the island. They think everyone cares much more about whether Kate is in loooooove with Jack or Sawyer. Ohmigod, I so totally don't care. Give me mystery! Give me action! Give me adventure! Give me Locke! Not some stupid drippy love story between three people that clearly have emotional problems anyway. Bah.

Luckily, my old standby "Survivor" starts up next week, and "Amazing Race All Stars" soon thereafter. Wahoo!

Yeah! Douchebags! All of them. Sam was hot though. Have I mentioned that? Could we maybe just have a whole season of Sam and Harold shirtless?

I thought that about Studio 60 the first time I saw it. I much prefer 30 Rock. HI-larious!
