Writers Come Back!!!

This writer's strike is killing me. I have watched more episodes of Friends, and Seinfeld in the past two months than I did during the entire decade of the '90s. What's even worse, these pregnancy hormones are making me all stupid, and I just found myself shedding a tear while watching an episode of Friends involving Ross and his monkey.

In other TV randomness, I'm not sure if I've been living under a rock or if I happened to find this show under a rock, but how is it possible that there is an audience for The Two Coreys, a reality show involving both Corey Feldman and Corey Haim? No, I am not the audience for this show - it happened to come on while I was devouring a plate of nachos for dinner, and I didn't want to lose my focus. Is anyone still curious about either of these two guys? I liked them in The Lost Boys, but I was only 15, so this cannot be held against me. Another thing that perplexes me is that in The Lost Boys, why did Corey Haim have a picture of Rob Low on his bedroom wall? Did I really just devote an entire paragraph to those guys? Help me.

So now I'm closing off my night with an episode of Scott Baio is 45 and Single, which is being shown on one of our local channels. I watched it back in the summer on-line, so now I'm trying to recapture the laughter on a screen that's bigger than 4"x4". It is pretty hilarious if any of you are looking for something to watch these days.

Is it pathetic that I'm actually excited about the upcoming series of Amereican Idol? Maybe I should give reading another try.

Maybe it means that you should name your new baby Corey :-)

Do you belong to Netflix? We're keeping them running during the strike....I just upgraded our membership from 2 DVD's at a time to 3.

What is this reading you speak of? Strike is painful, someone send help.

Oh and I made it through half an episode of The Two Corey's two different times during a recent marathon. It was very, very painful yet I couldn't tear myself away.

Oh, how it's worse this week than last when you posted it. Monday night came and went and not a single episode of anything watchable.

BBC Canada, Discovery, PBS - these are now uncharted and unexplored territories that await for me.

TV on DVD is the answer for us. Try Friday Night Lights, Veronica Mars or Firefly (I'm assuming you've seen Buffy and BSG??)

I didn't know about any of these shows -which shows how much tv I [don't] watch nowadays!

I thought Scott Baio was cute when I was in my teens. I wonder what I would have thought of him now?

I'm guessing they got him married off? ;)

I say read books, rent DVDs, take up meditating, or go for walks :)
