The TV MegaSite's Blog Post #102
Sunday November 10
I can't believe we're a third of the way through November already! And Thanksgiving is coming soon (Although, it's late this year).
Friday November 22
I haven't been very good about typing in here the past few weeks. I've mostly been watching the soaps. I constantly have to delete stuff from my DVR, so watching the soaps gets rid of them.
I'm very sorry to see Billy Miller leave Y&R! He is fabulous. I know he will go on to many wonderful things. I'm glad that David Tom will be returning. I hope he does a great job. Last time he played Billy, he was playing a really young guy. A kid, really. Billy is more mature now, with a son and a tragedy behind him, and a failing marriage. Somehow I can't see him going up against Victor. But we'll give him a chance.
I'm currently watching the soaps from October 28, so I'm slightly less than a month behind!
As for primetime shows, it seems the only ones I am able to keep up with consistently (besides Family Guy, which I watch with my husband) are Castle, CSI, Law & Order, and Haven. I'm behind on everything else! Yikes.
The problem is not only time but I tend to think, oh, I can delete this from the DVR because I can watch it On Demand or on Hulu. But there are still shows from the summer I'm behind on and they are long gone from either of those places. I'll have to buy them on DVD or something.
Am I the only one with this problem? Somehow I doubt it.
The site is coming along well... we always need more help, though!
This past week I created two new sections of our site for "Covert Affairs" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm". Covert Affairs returns next year for its 5th season. Curb Your Enthusiasm hasn't been canceled, but it's up to writer/creator/star Larry David as to whether he brings it back, or when. It's such a funny show!!
Next is a section for "Dallas". I have about 15 other shows I want to create sections for, too! It takes a good day or so to create one section because it's not just making new pages, but I have to make new buttons and also create content. That means finding information online, writing, working with graphics, etc. Time consuming!
This week's news page is at http://tvmegasite.net/prime/news/news112413.shtml I'm sure it's mostly re-runs since this week is Thanksgiving.
I was sad that Jennifer Love Hewitt's show "The Client List" has been canceled. I'm very glad that "Drop Dead Diva" has been renewed, though, and also that "The Killing" will be back, even if it will be on Netflix.
We live in Hawaii, which has a lot of channels in Japanes, Chinese, Korean etc. We've been watching this Korean drama called "Mystery Housemaid". It's very good; a little soapy. It's a kind of mystery. This family's mother commits suicide because the husband is having an affair. They hire a new maid to help take care of the kids, and she is very odd. The rest of it is all about finding out what her mystery is and how she grows closer to the family, and whether the father will choose his mistress or his children. They should make an American version. The housemaid is very strange, so it makes you wonder, as the children do: is she magical? Is she a robot? Is she a ghost or perhaps possessed by their dead mother? It's in sub-titles, of course.

I finally got a lot of the soaps off my DVR (meaning that I watched them and put them on DVD, with no commercials), and I finally got through all of the DVD's that were sent to me. So now I'm finally catching up on the other primetime shows like Bones and Revenge.
I've been sick this week, so I haven't had as much time to work on the site as I usually do. Ah, well!
One of our site's best volunteers, Boo, passed away suddenly last week. It's very sad. She was about my page, only in her mid-50's. She'd been in pain for years, though. She used to have so much energy and worked so hard on our site! She was my right hand for quite a while. The great thing about Boo was that not only was she good at writing, and she did lots of stuff, all the time. I really don't know how she did so much. I could really rely on her. She was also very good with the other volunteers and got to know them all very well. She is definitely missed!
Thank goodness we have so many great volunteers on our site! We're so lucky to have so many wonderful people. Many of them have been working on the site for many years.
This time of year, I send out lots of holiday cards. I especially enjoy sending them to the volunteers. The little bit I can give them to reward them for their help makes me feel better about not being able to pay them! Or me :)
Happy Holidays to all!
