I am not a nutty TV viewer or anything, but this is ridiculous. I've no idea what to watch.
I've got to confess...I tried The Office. I was a little bit lost. Maybe I need more background. OR maybe I'm just not funny.
I've been surviving on reruns of Monk and Gilmore Girls.
However, last night I watched Tales from the Underbelly and laughed more than once. It followed Dance Wars, which was also surprisingly enjoyable. The King even graced us with his presence and watched. With his Crackberry.
But, here's my newest TV dilemma: To watch American Idol or not.
I think I am going to succumb to peer pressure and do whatever y'all do. (Didn't I just post yesterday about not doing what everyone else tells me to do?)
I love American Idol when it gets down to the 12 finalists.
I detest it during the Ridiculous Ploy to Get On TV portion.
If these poor people really think they can sing, then I feel sorry for them and can't bear to watch.
If they know they can't sing (and please tell me that they do) then I don't want to endorse their 15 minutes of pathetic fame.
I'm not sure that I can begin watching when it narrows to 12, though. I'll feel like I've been left out and there will be inside jokes that I don't get. If I'm gonna watch I've got to start from the top and stick it out.
The beginning is just so painful.
I really hate the dorks that try to get into a fracas with Simon. Like him or not, he is usually right.
Ryan has definitely gotten way too cool for his own good.
Randy is ok. I'm pretty much indifferent to Randy.
And Paula...didn't she just have a breakdown or something? Is she gonna be there?
It is one of those shows that is all consuming. Everyone talks about it and I hate to be one of the ones that is talking about it, but sometimes people are just not right about the best singer and someone has to tell them...
And it takes up 2 nights a week. Tivo is torn between recording Idol for me or The Unit for The King. Tivo chooses me and then there's a rift between them. (Perhaps if The King could learn to run the Tivo then it would pick him. Perhaps.)
And then there is the time spent hitting the stinkin' redial button to get my stupid vote included...
And then Melinda Doolittle gets voted off and the whole season is ruined.
So. I'm just not sure if I'm ready to make such a big commitment.
What are y'all gonna do? We've got to decide quick--there is a TWO DAY FOUR HOUR PREMIER starting tonight.
