Today Is Quiet In My Town  
As I was sitting on my computer, USA playing in the background, a show started to commence within it’s allotted time slot. I’d heard of this specific show before - the actor playing the main character happens to be a rather talented one at that. British too. Funny how all of a sudden accents are the new cool thing. Oh wait, they always have been. Anyways back on point. Slowly my attention started to shift from dealing with over exaggerated drama online to the show itself. It was the pilot episode. Right away it was entertaining within the way it was shot, the rearranging of time sequence since the happenings were actually just a re-telling of the experience to a female barkeep (who understandably didn’t believe the man and simply pegged it for a very methodical pick up line). The title of the show? The Philanthropist. I know, I know. How in the hell is that even capable of being a good show, let alone an hour long one? No idea. However, I do know that so far I rather enjoy it. Luckily after my first encounter with the pilot there was the second episode right after. Good ol’USA network. Always got my back… except if you want to bring up the whole cancelling Touching Evil. I mean what the hell people? That was a damn good show. Then again, I should be thanking USA as well. If it hadn’t been cut, Michael Westen would not exist or worse, he would be played by a different actor. I looked up The Philanthropist and found out that it plays Wednesday nights. Sadly, I’d missed the third episode but I can watch it online, will I? Probably not. I hate watching things online - it’s just not the same for me. I did watch it tonight. Again, it was entertaining. It has a mix of everything I like. Funny moments, voice overs that teach you something meaningful, and a cute redhead. Point is, I’ll probably be tagging along with this show until it runs its course. Yeah, I know, not very optimistic of me. But I’m no fool, I’m well aware that my tastes often do not run with those of the greater American Public. I mean, American Idol? Really? Dancing with the Stars? Not to mention NBC has a sting of new shows coming this Fall that look like utter rip offs (On that note, all you people who watch The Mentalist… Psych is soooo much better. There’s pineapple!) …if the world was all about those shows, reality or scripted crap, I’d probably own a hell of a lot more movies then I already do. As of right now, I’m watching The Venture Brothers. I’m finding out that I love this show and all its stupidity.

You're so cute! You make me laugh! And WOW, you actually posted something on your LJ! O_O *is in utter shock*

As for Touching Evil, I totally agree with you, Dean got me watching that one day and I, in turn, got Arie watching it. It was great. Sad that it's gone... Alas, most shows worth a shit get cancelled!
Oh, and as for the Am. Idol & dancing w/the stars thing - I am SO with you on that! Those things are total waste of the human brain to watch.. I can actually feel brain cells dying as those shows are put on my television by others. I totally have to leave the room or fear that soon I shall be turned into the couch potato blob that most of America is.
See why I, personally only turn on the TV on Thursday Nights at 9 EST? *grins*

I figure it's about time I post regularly.
So keep your eyes open for more adorableness from me!

Was I blind as well as drunk?
*looks around* Oop, nope, just no more adorableness from you... already. *snort*
Well, that lasted a whole... what... couple hours, until you got distracted by something else? *gigglesnorts and shakes head*
You crack me up, truly...
