The TV MegaSite's Blog Post #98

  • Sunday 10/6
I finally finished watching "Devious Maids" today. It was really good. I can't wait for it to return!

We watched "The Simpsons" again. It was the Halloween episode. I thought it was slightly better than the previous episodes, but still not as funny as it should be. Same with "Family Guy". I also watched "Revenge", which I always love. I caught up with last week's "Castle" On Demand. My DVR deleted some shows last week so I lost quite a few that I'm going to have to find On Demand or online. Now I'm watching last week's "Law & Order: SVU". This is the episode where they combined the Trayvon Martin case with the Paula Deen scandal. It is a bit silly...
  • Monday 10/7
Now I'm watching "Haven" On Demand. I kinda figured Audrey would still not remember who she is.  I also watched "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", which is awesome!

I also watched the new show "Super Fun Night". I don't get it. If I wanted to see fat girls on my TV, I'd videotape myself. I'd be funnier and sing better, too.

I saw the rest of epsiodes of "CSI" and "NCIS" that had gotten interrupted when my DVR ran out of room, too. So sad to see the end of Ziva.

I'm posting more on our Primetime Forum and trying to keep up with that a bit...

For some reason, my DVR keeps saying it's full, even when I have room left! Grrr. So annoying.

I watched "Bones" and now watching "Sleepy Hollow". Good shows! Glad Pelant is gone.  Then I also watched tonight's "Castle".

Then I started watching up on the soaps. I last left off around Sept. 9. I'm running transcripts as I catch up.
  • Tuesday 10/8
I spent a lot of time watching soaps, and then I also watched a bunch of primetime shows off my DVR: "NCIS", "Supernatural", and "Person of Interest". Some of my favorites! Glad to have them all back.

I got a second DVR for the bedroom, but it keeps having problems and the cable guy keeps coming out to fix it. It's crazy!!  So I keep missing some of my shows. Thank goodness for On Demand and the internet. I think I'm about 3 episodes behind on "Criminal Minds" now... for some reason, that one's not on On Demand, so I'm going to have to catch it on Hulu or iTunes.
  • Wednesday 10/9
I have a huge stack of DVD's to watch and catch up on. I just watched the premiere of this season's "White Collar", a great show. Tomorrow morning (too early!) I get to interview the stars of the show, so that's why I had to watch it. But glad to watch it, too.

Gisele runs The TV MegasSite with me. Her daughter, Shannon, is now helping me a lot with our Primetime Forum! She's doing a great job, too. We have so many great volunteers for our site but always need more so please check out our list of jobs and let me know what you'd like to do if you have a few free hours every week...
  • Thursday 10/10
I did a dumb thing! I ran Wednesday's transcripts and named the files bb.html, yr.html etc. and then didn't put them up yet, and so I ran thursday's "Bold & The Beautiul" and "Young & the Restless" but used the same file names so they overwrote the Wednesday ones. D'oh!  Such an idiot. I have to re-run Wednesday's now. LOL!

Actually, that's only the second stupidest thing I did today. I had left a note for my husband to wake me up so I could go to my interview with the "White Collar" stars, and I left it on the laptop on a NOTEPAD file, and Windows rebooted, so he never saw the file, and I missed out on getting to talk to them. Very sad! I love those guys. I had questions all prepared.

I've been running some of the older ones whenever I can...

This morning I watched "Law & Order: SVU" (which was pretty good) and "Back in the Game" (not sure yet why I'm still watching that).  I deleted some other shows off the DVR because I'm recording them in the other room or because I can watch them On Demand. I was running out of room again and had to delete stuff.

Tonight I watched some great comedies. I laughed pretty well at "Big Bang Theory", and then sort of grimaced through "The Crazy Ones" (I only watch it because I love Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar, but it's not very good), and I laughed really hard at "Two and a Half Men". Awesome episode.

I don't know why there are so many horrible dads on TV sitcoms this year. Hey, writers, work out your daddy issues somewhere else, okay? Just concentrate on making the shows FUNNY and not full of angst.
  • Friday 10/11
Friday has some of my favorite shows - "Haven", "The Neighbors", and "Real Time with Bill Maher". Woo hoo!  We watched "South Park" kind of late, but it was funnier than the first two episodes this year. They mixed a parody of World War Z and the Trayvon Martin case.

Otherwise, I've just been catching up on the soaps! I record them all, run the transcripts for our site as I record them to DVD. I really don't pay close attention to any except for "General Hospital" and "One Life to Live", though. I mean, I know what's going on generally with the others but I sometimes don't hear or see what's going on if I'm out of the room or doing something else. Right now I'm on the Sept. 12 episodes.
  • Saturday 10/12
Still watching the soaps but need to watch the DVD's as soon as I've gotten somewhat caught up on the soaps.

I just found that OWN skipped one of the "One Life to Live" episodes and cut quite a bit out of the episodes, so I'm going to have to go back and watch them on Hulu or iTunes.  I'll need to do that, anyway, to fix up the "One Life to Live" transcripts. The closed-captioning is not great on those, so I have to fix them up.

"Days of Our Lives' is okay but kind of boring, for the most part. I miss John. I do love Justin (Wally Kurth), and Marlena, and Eric. I like Will, Chad, and Kristen, but they're all going to be leaving the show within the next year, so that's annoying. I can take or leave the rest of them, or at least their stories.

I don't like what's been going on with "Young & the Restless", particularly the story with Delia. I haven't watched those episodes yet, but I've seen parts of them. I didn't like the way they had Paul and Chris get married during Katherine's memorial service. That was just weird. The rest of it was ok.  I don't like Sharon being so crazy, talking to her daughter in her imagination and obsessed with Nick, and especially her using Faith in her plotting. It is nice to see Cassie again, though.  I also don't like the storyline about the chick that's going after Cane (or Devon?). I can't keep that all straight. I like the story about Nikki and her long lost son, even though that's been done a million times. They've re-cast the younger people so much, it's hard to feel much about them. I like Noah a lot, but they need to give him more to do.

As I said, I missed a lot of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" that I need to go back and re-watch, but I really don't like the new actor who plays J.R. I don't think he's a very good actor, and he looks too young to be A.J.'s father. I love seeing so many of my favorite AMC actors and characters on there more than I like any of the stories.

"Bold & The Beautiul" has a lot of stupid stories, but I do like the relationships between Bill, Liam and Wyatt.

I'll probably always like "General Hospital", good or bad. The stuff with Ava and Morgan is icky. I hope they get rid of Ava soon (and I'm pretty sure she is the one who killed Connie). I like the actress, but not the character. It's great that they gave Monica some good scenes with A.J. The actors who play Silas and Franco are doing a great job, but I really do prefer them playing John and Todd. However, I didn't like the way the GH writers wrote Todd at all (he was too comical), so that doesn't really bother me all that much. I do miss John McBain, though. I was glad to see Todd on "One Life to Live", but they really needed John as well. Starr...well, they ruined her story so much on "General Hospital" that it ruined her character as well. They're not writing her new character Kiki as being all that interesting.

I have so many other primetime shows I need to catch up with, too!  Enjoy your TV-watching this week...
