TV Quick Quips


Here's my take on this week's episodes of my favorite shows:

The Biggest Loser - I was so excited that Danny won! He really struck me as a really decent guy. I liked Rudy too and his transformation was completely amazing. But, I think the best man won. I hate to be catty, but I thought Rebecca looked cheap and sleazy. Her hair looked terrible, her dress was way too short (I could see the all the extra loose skin on her thighs flapping as she walked) and she seems to have morphed into a hootchie mama. What happened? She didn't look "hot", she looked ridiculous. I know that's mean, but it's true. Of course, she deserves a ton of credit for losing all that weight, but no matter what size you are, you need to dress for your body type. She failed in that. I was also glad to hear that a new season of The Biggest Loser will be starting on January 5. I've never watched this show before, and I just assumed it was over until next fall. Yay!

Modern Family - It was fun to see Phil's Dad on Skype. The apple didn't fall far from the tree apparently. Loved Jay's comment about not being in Columbia since there are "no goats in the street" and Cam's description of the baby swing as "something astronauts would train in". Very funny. Another great episode. This show keeps delivering week after week.

Glee - Yes, yes, I know I said was done with Glee. But after Modern Family, Madeleine wanted to watch Glee and since I was so comfy snuggle up on the sofa, I decided to watch rather than give up my prime location in the family room. (It's not often I get the sofa). I actually thought it was a pretty good episode. It seems they've put to rest the two pregnancy story lines that were bugging me. And it's nice to see the two couples who should be together moving in that direction. I was surprised when Madeleine said that episode was the season finale. Though it was a great finale episode. Way to keep the fans on the edge of their seats. But, then I heard from Karen at A Peek at Karen's World that part two of the season will begin again on April 13th. I reserve my right as a woman to change my mind about this show.

The Office - Once again, Creed had the best line of the episode - "What if I've been evil"? So Creed. Love it. Darryl was also great in this episode when Oscar came to the warehouse with Matt's (Mark's?) check. Very nice. I love the random Creed and Darryl moments. This season they've used Creed a lot more. Time to give Darryl more screen time, as well.

I was a little surprised (and sad) to see that both Modern Family and The Office aired their Christmas episodes last week. I guess that means there won't be any new episodes until after Christmas. With Glee finished until spring and The Biggest Loser finished until January 5th, I guess there won't be much to watch on TV for the next couple of weeks. I guess that means I'll have plenty of time to watch all my favorite Christmas movies on DVD.

I'm still enjoying Glee, though I admit it was a relief to finally get the truth out about the two pregnancies. It'll be a long wait until April, although LOST will help pass the time when it comes back in February.

Loving Modern Family. Definitely the most consistently good new show this year.

I'd been following "Biggest Loser" all season, only to have our DVR receiver go belly-up on Monday so I didn't get to see the grand finale. I never dreamed when I first began watching it this season that underneath all that fat there was such a nice-looking guy buried when it comes to Danny. What an amazing transformation! I rooted for Liz all season. It seemed like each episode she'd say something pensive that resonated with every midlife woman's heart. One thing was how she'd been so busy taking care of everyone else thru the years she'd forgotten to take care of herself. Isn't that the truth? I'm not much of a TV watcher otherwise, outside of the taped PBS shows I have for the grandboys. I've never watched any of the shows you've mentioned here.

I LOVE GLEE! I am a dork, I DVR-d it, and I seriously watched the performances (most especially the end, ah, the kiss!) about 3-4x. I'm behind an episode on The Office so I skipped your review for that one. Glad you caught Glee's finale, though. And thank goodness about the pregnancy storylines. It was making me nutty!

I'm late (ahem, what else is new) but wanted to chirp in with my love for Modern Family AGAIN. "Feel" made me laugh during the whole Christmas is out thing.

Happy Holidays!!!
