Now I can pay attention to the more entertaining shows like Person Of Interest, 2 Broke Girls, Two and Half Men, Mike & Molly and well just about anything else is more entertaining. Oh, and Person Of Interest.

Fixed for ya.

I just found out about this last night. It's old news by now given that it was announced 3 weeks ago. But this is great news for me. The only shows I watch that is CW-related are Ringer, Nikita and 90210. Having these three shows on Hulu will make my life a littler easier because now I will get email notifications of when new episodes are up, something that the CW site does not have. Also, CW streaming is usually hit and miss and is not perfect. I was happy when ABC went to Hulu for the same reasons. One of my biggest pet peeves about how the CW streams is if the feed stalls at any point in the episode and you have to refresh to reload, it doesn't pick up the episode from the same spot. This means I have to rewatch from the beginning. Hulu doesn't have this problem.

There will be a delay of new episodes, most likely 8 days after original air date. I checked to see if the latest episode of 90210 was up on Hulu (it's not), even though it's been up for a couple of days on CW. I will wait for it to pop on Hulu as I am done with the CW site, which also plays the most annoying ads. Sometimes they play the same ad back to back to back to back to back. Grrrrrr.

Officially crossed off Terra Nova off my list. What a waste of money that is being dumped into that show.

Unless I can find an alternative, it looks like I will be dropping Falling Skies, Southland and Leverage from my list through no fault of my own. TNT has come up with the brilliant idea of locking every one of their shows online. The only way to unlock them is to provide an access code from a list of Cable providers. My provider isn't on their oh-so-special list. F uck TNT. I love both Southland and Leverage, but I'm not about to start jumping though hoops because TNT says so. It blows my mind how some of these networks think. They are cutting themselves off at the knees pulling s hit like this. I will just look to see if people upload episodes on YouTube. If it's not there, I will just wait for the DVD releases.

I’m not going to post individual posts and follow these. Just too much going on.

House of Lies
Well the people behind this show know how to grab your attention. The opening minute has a nekkid Don Cheadle face buried in some female’s derrière, which turns out to be his ex-wife and chief competition in the consulting business. House of Lies is break neck storytelling, with tongue firmly in cheek. Often in the lightening paced dialogue, everything freezes, except Don Cheadle who then breaks the fourth wall and talks to the audience to explain things. I like it. It works.
The various storylines including his business, family and love life are all engaging and quite witty and surprising. Qualities that mean a lot to me.

Right off, my wife and I enjoyed the 30 minute show. We now have something to look forward to on Sunday evenings. Highly recommend.

Californication
Wow, talk about coming late to the game. First time viewing, but it’s already in its fifth season. Similar to House of Lies, the cast of characters are unique and fun to watch. Apparently no subject is taboo here either. Following David Duchovney is a hoot. Instantly liked this show too. We may try to catch up a little Showtime On Demand is showing all of season 4.

Shameless
Love William H Macy and his drunk, busted ass, lowlife character is too far and between in this chaotic plot. There was nothing here really grabbing me to stay on. While sprinkled with laid back humor, the story lines just lacked interest. Mostly likely will not follow this. It's not bad, but not great either.

It's a reality show. If Survivor isn't TV, then Face Off isn't either, regardless of its content.

In my mind, shows like Survivor labeled as ‘reality’ is misleading. Survivor and Faceoff are game shows. The object is to win a prize.

Reality shows have sub-genres. Some I like such as American Chopper and Dirty Jobs. Snapshots of observing people in the things they do. Unfortunately many other ‘reality’ shows involve talentless people doing absolutely nothing of value.
I absolutely hate game shows.  I never understood watching other people on TV compete in games. I think this started in my childhood days of the Price Is Right, Password, Jeopardy, etc. I think my idea of hell would be to forcibly watch game shows and talentless reality shows.

Which brings me to dilemma some may state when I say I enjoy FaceOff… a game. I think the exception to my own rule is…

1) I could care less who wins. It’s not about winning.

2) It’s about the talent. It’s the journey, challenge and solution.  Not everybody can do these things. Unlike most game shows you are watching someone with luck get through the show, but watching a smart person know stuff is just as boring. 

You could arguably say maybe I would enjoy Cupcake Wars or Tiara’s and Toddlers, but it only makes sense, I would have to have in interest in the subject of the game too.
