Entertainment Whore

I am a manslut for TV. I am, unlike a streetwalker, very particular about what I waste my time or money on. The following are what I rock, but in which I almost advise folks not to get involved because they are mad addictive.
My new faves? You’ll be surprised. First: Grey’s Anatomy. I never got into it, but the folks at Kristin were so insistent, I went ahead and, um, acquired all but 2 of the existing episodes. That shite is addictive. For those who watch: Dr. Bailey is the best thing since sliced bread. The actress who portrays her is frigging awesome, and the character is written so well that it has to be semi-autobiographical.

My other favorite newly discovered show? Entourage. I again, um, happened upon all of the first two seasons and became highly addicted to this show. Produced by Massachusite Mark Wahlberg, it is a sharp look at the culture of Hollywood stars and what their difficult lives consist of. For anyone who has a.) seen the show and, b.) knows who Marky Mark’s brother is, I have a question: do you think the Drama character could possibly shit more on Donnie Wahlberg, or is it pretty much the worst possible depiction of an elder brother?

Honorable mention goes to several off-beat shows: Campus Girls, which is on, of all places, Oxygen network, and runs with the Curb Your Enthusiasm/Always Sunny in Philadelphia vibe, but for menopausal women; Conviction, from BBC America, which is like 24 had a baby with CSI; Dinner for Five and Sunday Morning Shootout, both very inside looks at how the industry works; and Web Junk 20, pointed out to me by Kinseamus, a VH1 vehicle which is barely okay, but has my main man Patrice O’Neal hosting, so deserves respect.

I am rocking two Tivoes due to some technical issues, so I don’t miss a thing. If I have missed anything that needs viewing, let me know. If you want to have time for your family, friends, Jesus Christ, or the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH), then ignore this whole post, because these mugs will consume your time like a vicious fire.

  1. I heard Drama was based on a cousin or or another close friend. More importantly, did you ever catch Boomtown? Good stuff that went the Firefly route, ie, suffered an early death to the sounds of fan cries from around the world. It proved that Donnie definitrly ain’t no new kid anymore.

  2. I have been hoarding Entourage and Grey’s Anatomy on the Myth box – no time to watch them now but in the summer repeat season it will be awesome.

    Other shows we have been enjoying: Veronica Mars (fixes Buffy withdrawal), How I Met Your Mother (damn funny!!!! Also fixes Buffy withdrawal), Sleeper Cell (in small doses, because it is scary), and lately The IT Crowd (so goofy, maybe only funny if you work with computers or if you were a fan of The Young Ones :-)). Our big guilty pleasure right now is Four Kings, but if you cannot bring yourself to watch NBC “Must-See” schlock then at least grab yourself some Robot Chicken off the Cartoon Network – Seth Green at his goofy best.

  3. chandra wilson went to the high school for the performing and visual arts (public, no less!) a block from where i live now. so did beyoncé. go figure.

  4. I’m a bitch for Veronica Mars.
    I keep watching Four Kings, but it’s 99.7% crap.
    I’m happy 24 is back and that Prison Break will be back next month.

  5. ditto for VM… wallace is the mac.
    the wife and i are hooked on 24, the shield, rescue me and probably soon “thief”.

    i have less than no interest in black.white. despite ice cube’s involvement.

  6. Aw shit. Thief looks hype.

  7. I watch the commercial for Thief every time it comes on. I’m developing a hetero-mancrush on Andre Braugher. Plus, Ann from Arrested Development is on it.

  8. I went to school with Chandra. I am very proud of her in GREY’s. She is an excellent actress!
