TV Quick Quips are little late this week. My hope is to post them on Saturdays after all my weekly shows have aired. Also, TV Quick Quips are probably going to be a little random for awhile. Right now the only one of my "regular" shows that has started is The Office, so I will definitely be quipping about that every week. I'm not sure when the rest of my shows will start (some don't start until January), so in the meantime I'm going to try a few new shows and see what I think. I will quip about any I watch, but I may not continue with any/all of them if they don't appeal to me. I tend to get bored with shows fairly quickly. OK, here we go:
1. The Biggest Loser - I've never watched an entire season of this show, but I have seen a few random episodes and I must admit I enjoy watching the contestants (?) meet their goals. When I saw previews for this season I knew I had to watch. Abby, the woman whose husband and two children were killed in a car accident, really touched me. When I saw her in the previews I just knew I wanted to know more about her story. I will admit I was crying my eyes out when she told about how her entire life was wiped out in an instant. So for me, this show is all about Abby. I just want her to win. The woman is an absolute inspiration. (OK there was nothing Quick or Quippy about that. Sorry).
2. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - As I said earlier, Geoff and I had watched a few episodes of this show on DVD. Geoff had read somewhere that it was The Office-like. Well, after watching the premiere, I've decided that I'm not going to be adding this show to my repertoire. While the comedy in The Office is often awkward and over the top, the comedy in Philadelphia just goes too far. It crosses the line from almost offensive to offensive. I just didn't think it was funny. This show is just not for me.
3. The Office - This show has been my favorite TV show since it's second season (this is season 6). I will admit that season 4 and 5 were weak, but I'm just too committed to give in. I hope this season redeems the show for me. I thought the premiere was pretty good. There were some funny moments. I love the randomness that is Creed. And Pam and Jim are so sweet (I love the Pam and Jim story line). BUT, I did NOT like where they went with Stanley's character. It seemed a little too dramatic and serious for this show. I don't want to think about something so serious and upsetting in my favorite comedy. Awkward, no problem. Uncomfortable, go for it. Inappropriate comments, bring it on. But making a joke out of infidelity seems to be wrong for The Office. I will be curious to see where they go with this. I'm a little worried about it, though. We'll see.
OK, this week two new shows are premiering that caught my eye - Modern Family and The Good Wife. I'll let you know what I think.
