It was Friday night, time to party. That didn’t mean we could catch a bit of TV, too. Come on in!
Ghost Whisperer: Mones
It’s Friday night and I’m visiting my parents for the weekend, so for my mamacita and me that can only mean one thing: Ghost Whisperer!Â My mom got me hooked on this show a couple years back.Â At first, I sat and watched with her just thankful we were watching something other than Univision.Â This IS America after all.Â Then it turned into curiosity.Â What crazy get-up would J-Love wear next?Â How many earrings does Camryn Manheim have in each ear?Â Finally, David Conrad walked out in a wife-beater.Â That’s when I knew this was must see TV.Â Yeah, that first episode was awesome.
So last night, Melinda helps Robert, a man with Fatal Familial Insomnia and two ghosts who turn out to be his dad and sister.Â At first, Melinda’s visions of a blond woman getting stabbed and Robert with crazy devil eyes led her to believe she was reliving the OJ Simpson trial, but when the girlfriend showed up at the hospital with Robert’s dad The Gang was able to get the full story.Â Robert was adopted because GhostDad had accidentally cut RealMom’s arm during one of his own trips to Crazytown.Â RealMom bled to death and GhostDad died in the psych ward.Â He started haunting Robert with visions of his mom’s stabbing to keep him from starting a family of his own.Â It makes complete sense when you watch the episode, trust me.Â In the end, Melinda saved Robert from committing suicide and GhostDad and GhostSister go into the light.
Also in this ep, Jamie Kennedy gets to wear a snazzy suit but is still betrayed by that goofy face, J-Love’s fake eyelashes continue to expand exponentially, threatening to overshadow her new leather jacket and David Conrad gets stripped to his skivvies.
Last night on Dollhouse, the show gets cancelled. The End. Well, okay, more happens than just that. It’s 2020 and it turns out bur heroes didn’t save the world last week. A whole bunch of stuff happens, all of which can be filed under spoiler, still there is some stuff we can talk abut right now. Topher’s crazy, and DeWit is threatening to eat peoples’ tongues, oh and she’s not crazy. Tempe is still the most evil city in the world. Yay Continuity! There’s a lot of stress in Victor and Sierra’s relationship, mainly caused by his insistence in dressing like an extra in the Love is a Battlefield video. Eliza Dushku wildly overacts, and Scott Vargas is a landscape architect. Oh, and then the show gets cancelled.
Kitchen Nightmares: Chooch
I hate when company interrupts my viewing habits! I refused to watch the finale of “Dollhouse” while people were gabbing it up & smoking pot. Of course, I had to cook something to eat afterwards. Ymmmm…. mac & cheese! So it was late when I finally lost my buzz & the only thing I could concentrate on was watching the premiere of “Kitchen Nightmares” with Chef Ramsey. He went to the Hot Potato Cafe in Philly to help this coven of sisters, who by the way, stood around clueless as to why they were a quarter of a million dollars in debt… a quarter of a MILLION!! I just can’t imagine that much debt. Potatoes are CHEAP!
After a lot of crying & blank stares, Gordon does his magic & shows them how to cook a potato & remodels the whole place. One thing different this season, product placement! He gave them all new pots & pans with an endorsement for the makers. They also got a three months supply of Idaho potatoes from the growers themselves, FOR FREE! Gawd, I wish Ramsey was around when I had my restaurant. Free is Free! The one thing Ramsey didn’t do last night was make them get down on their hands & knees & clean. No bugs crawling all over the food either. God, I hope he finds filth & vermin on the next episode. As for “Dollhouse”, I have it preserved on my DVR. I may never watch it, just worship it on my playlist. LOST ON TUESDAY!!
