The Tudors - Can I just say, I am sooo glad I didn't live in England in the mid-1500's. What a brutal time it was. I can still not get the image of the women struggling with the guards as their husbands were being hanged for treason. It's haunting me.
American Idol - Even though I agree it was time for her to go, I was sad about Lil being sent home. She started out as one of my favorites, but she really seemed to go downhill after a great start. And it was definitely time for Anoop to leave. I never really liked him all that much as singer. From now on it's going to be much harder to see the contestants go. Right now I'm betting on Adam, Kris and Danny as the top three. Adam is still my favorite, but Kris is starting to impress me.
LOST - I LOVE these recap shows that LOST airs every now and then. They feel like review sessions for the big final in my most difficult college course. Every time I see one I realize how much I've forgotten over the course of the season. And how much I never really "got" the first time around. Can't think of any other show that I'm actually not disappointed when there isn't a new episode every week. But I do have to wonder about a show that is so confusing that I need a refresher course part way through the season. I'm beginning to think I'm a glutton for punishment.
The Office - Yay! It was so nice to hear Pam talk about planning her wedding to Jim. When is that going to happen anyway? Double Yay, for Jim FINALLY not looking like a bumbling fool in front of Charles. That whole story line was really bumming me out. Loved the scene when the Korean woman got in the van and everyone just stared blankly ahead. Classic The Office!
