I've noticed a lot of friends take part in this every Friday so thought I'd join the rest of the cool kids. Actually, it's just nice to already have a topic to blog about when you're feeling lazy. I'm not going to do this every single Friday b/c I don't really feel like being a T.V. Guide but for tonight, it'll work. So, here's what I've been watching:
- The Glades~ So, this is fast becoming one of my favorite shows. It's only the 2nd season of the A&E original show. It's a bit like C.S.I. Miami in that it deals with homicide & it takes place in... Miami! Now, nothing can replace C.S.I. Miami, Horatio & Det. Eric Delko! NOTHING! But, since CSI Miami isn't showing any new episodes until Fall, this definitely is a good temporary replacement. It held me over last Summer & it's doing a good job this Summer. The Glades is a bit less serious than CSI Miami is. There are little touches of humor spread throughout the show. The main character is Det. Jim Longworth played by the VERY beautiful, Matt Passmore. Matt Passmore is one of the few people I find to be just as sexy while talking w/ an American accent as he is when talking with his native Australian accent. (Australian & English accents REALLY get to me!!!) The character of Jim is great b/c he's quick witted & a COMPLETE smartass. (much like myself =)) I love to see Jim & Dr. Carlos Sanchez (played by Carlos Gomez) play off of each other. Most of the more humorous scenes in each episode take place between these 2 characters. If you're a CSI Miami fan & you haven't checked out this show, give it a shot.
|Not too shabby, eh?|
- The Closer~ This past Monday was the season premiere of the FINAL season of The Closer. I'm going to be sad to see this one go b/c it's a great show. Kyra Sedgwick is so FAB as Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. (the accent alone is enough for me) If you watch this show regularly & haven't yet seen the season premier, scroll ahead so I don't give anything away. In this episode Chief Johnson & her awesome crew investigated the homicide of a rapper, some of his friends & some ladies who happened to be "entertaining" them at the time the murder took place. Blah, blah, blah... all that's good but the best part of this episode was seeing Chief Johnson & crew take on Captain Raydor (Mary McDowell of Dances with Wolves fame) & Chief Delk (Courtney B. Vance of Law&Order fame). The homicide division is in a bit of hot water due to what Chief Johsnon & some of her detectives did to the killer in the last episode of season 6. We're seeing some changes taking place within the homicide division & it looks like Chief Delk is about to replace Chief Pope (J.K. Simmons known for playing the father in Judo & he's in all the new Farmer's Insurance commercials) but then, cut to the very last few minutes of the episode... looks like Chief Delk has had a heart attack or stroke b/c he quits talking mid sentence, grabs his chest & collapses to the floor. Then the show ends! I'd heard that one of the characters was going to die in the very first episode of the season & since no other characters died, it has to be Chief Delk. Plus, when they showed previews for next weeks episode, we see all the characters at a funeral. SO, what does this mean for Chief Johsnon, Chief Polk & the L.A. homicide division? Obviously, there's no way in the world Chief Delk can replace Chief Polk. Will Chief Polk maintain the position he now holds? Looks like the final season of The Closer is going to be full of all sorts of drama! As long as nothing happens to my favorite character, Chief Provenza (the HILARIOUS G.W. Bailey who played great characters in MASH, Police Academy & Felix, the security guard, in one of my favorite 80s movies, Mannequin), I think I can handle this being the last season.
- Rizzoli & Isles~ Like The Glades, this show is in it's 2nd season. The main reason I caught the first episode of last season was due in large part to Angie Harmon. I loved her on Law&Order and I think she is just gorgeous. Plus, I like her raspy voice. Anyway, I ended up liking that first episode so I ended up watching the entire first season. The last season ended w/ Angie Harmon's character (Det. Rizzoli) & Sasha (LOVE that name ;)) Alexandar's character (Dr. Isles) being held hostage. Det. Rizzoli ended up shooting herself in the stomach (Keanu Reeves taught her well! You know, "Shoot the hostage!", from Speed.) & then the episode ended. Gotta love those cliffhanger season endings! So, anyway, obviously we all knew they weren't going to kill of her character in very first season but still, I was wondering what was going to happen to her for almost a year! In this first episode of season 2, we see Det. Rizzoli being honored at some kind of banquet they have to honor officers. I actually don't feel like typing out everything that happened in this episode (I'm so sweet) so I'll just end the review of this show by saying although not as impressed with season 2's premier as I was season 1's, I still liked it & I'm looking forward to following the rest of the season. I love that Det. Rizzoli & Dr. Isles have been friends since childhood. Having the back story of the 2 main characters makes it a bit more fun to watch. Harmon & Alexander make quite a duo. A hot duo, might I add!
