The TV MegaSite's Blog Post #133

This week's Primetime News and Schedule is at

Next week's is at  at starting Sunday. Hopefully!

Last week I caught up with my site's daytime transcripts! Yay! About time. They should be up more regularly now that my company has left. 

I'm also catching up on TV shows on my DVR because it's filling up fast. So far tonight I watched this past week's "Longmire", Monday's "The Colbert Show" and "The Daily Show", and "Unforgettable".

I had company for the past 10 days, so I fell a bit behind on my TV watching. Also, I had many DVD's to watch (I still do have quite a few left). I review the DVD's on our site. Sundi also reviews many shows.

My friend that was visiting, Barb, is more of a sports fan than anything else. She does love scifi, but unlike me, she watches shows sporadically or casually. I could never do that. If I watch a show, I have to keep watching it (it has to get really awful before I'll stop watching). I can't just watch an episode here and there. I have to know what's going on.  We all have our own preferences and priorities, I guess. Barb and I like a lot of the same movies, so I don't know why she doesn't like all of the same shows, too.  :) It's silly!!

At least she doesn't mind watching what I like, and she likes a lot of the same actors I do. We both enjoyed watching "Extant" and a few other shows. We tried to watch "The Invisible Man", a 70's scifi show starring David McCallum. She had brought me the DVD. Well, I loved it back in the 70's, when I was around 12, but now it's kind of boring. Shows were just very slow back then and can't measure up to today's shows, for the most part. Also, this show did get canceled pretty quickly so wasn't as good back then, either, as many shows that were popular.

We tried to watch "The Strain" but it was just too gross. It has great writing and the acting is fabulous, but it's just too disgusting. I don't like "The Walking Dead", either.  This show is kind of like Zombie Vampires. Blecch.

Barb did convince me to start watching Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert again. I got out of the habit last year, but now I'm recording them again on my DVR. They're pretty funny, especially Colbert. I like Bill Maher a whole lot more than she does, though.

I spent a lot of time this week watching the 6th season of "Star Trek: The Next Generation", which is just out on Blu-Ray. Love it!!! It's fun to geek out.  Which reminds me - Comic-Con is starting this week. I wish I could go! At least we do have our regular photographers who go each year and take many photos for us. Check out the past ones.

I was very excited to learn that Shemar Moore is returning to "The Young & The Restless" in September! I wish it were for more than two episodes. The show can really use him.

It was a sad week because James Garner died. He was one of my favorites. I grew up watching "Maverick" and "Rockford Files" as well as his movies. He was so gorgeous, and what a great actor, too.

Have a great week and if you're at the General Hospital Fan Club Weekend or Comic-Con, have extra fun for me!!
