So I know I mentioned earlier that Gene and I have a DVR now and we are official junkies when it comes to that stupid, stupid machine! I thought I’d talk about a few of the shows we have on series record (hah, look at me, with the DVR-speak, I’m sooooo cool now).
first and foremost would be my new favorite cartoon, My Gym Partner’s A Monkey. I just happened to run across this cartoon one early morning while browsing TV before I headed off to work. I usually don’t stop on morning cartoons because they’re way too innocent for my taste. Well, this cartoon is HILARIOUS! I love it! Actually had Gene schedule it to record for now on so I can keep up with it. I just find it hilarious that the name of the school is Charles Darwin Middle School.
Coming at ya for number 2 would be Family Guy. I don’t talk about my FamGuy obsession much on my website. I think most people who know me “in real life” know about this and its pretty obvious since all I ever seem to do is quote the show and find oddball ways to relate it to real life situations. I can’t really describe my Family Guy obsession in words. I love the show and I don’t know if I’ve ever watched a TV series in my life that makes me laugh as much as this one does. I think it’s Freakin’ Sweet.
Late Night With Conan O’Brien is number three. I love Conan. There was a long time where we didn’t watch it very much because it comes on so late at night. Before we became DVR-Junkies, we were hardly ever able to watch it. I really love Conan and I am seriously thinking of making New York our honeymoon destination just so we can catch a live taping. I really want to be one of the idiots that is screaming above everyone else when he first walks out. I want to be the one he says “Thank you sir” to when said screaming is echoing above The Max Weinberg Seven’s instruments right before the monologue.
Weeds is a new show we’ve started recording. I saw one episode last night that was extremely odd and I loved it. It had a pretty good mixture of humor and drama. The humor is very subtle and dark. I don’t have much to say on this one as I’ve only seen one episode.. But I think I’m going to love it!
Flight of the Conchords… Um… This show may be the death of me. This show may be what causes me to actually pay for an HBO subscription. That is, assuming they have another season. This show has me absolutely falling off of my chair when I watch it and I think I have watched nearly every single video that is on The Tube. You know which Tube I’m talkin’ about people, the one that people flock to like a bunch of crazy ass seagulls. The one that houses the oh so popular Leave Britney Alone video ;) Yes.. that one! Search for Flight of the Conchords on there and watch some videos, it’ll give you a good idea of what the humor is like. I loooove their accents too :) I don’t know if I ever mentioned this before but I do not care much for the British accent. Most people in this country just fall head over heels in love with any one that has a British or Australian accent. I’ve never really understood why but to each their own. But I find the New Zealand accent totally AWESOME! I don’t “fall in love” with it but I do like it and I think it’s awesome. Or maybe It’s just Bret and Jemaine that I like so much!
Well that is all I have time for right now. There is more.. Oh yes there is more!
