What we have on our DVR list tells us alot about ourselves. What we save for later sometimes hides our true pleasures. We watch when no one’s looking. I went through my “playlist” last night & found it to be insurmountable. This causes a real crisis. What do I keep? What do I delete? As I scrolled down I realized I didn’t even know what some of these titles were….like Baggage.
Turns out it’s a gameshow with Jerry Springer. Everyone comes with “baggage” & they have to fess up to it, but only after their potential date chooses one of 3 “baggage” choices.. the one they can live with. Things like “I have three testicles” or “I chew my toenails” & my favorite “I still live with my mom.” The dater chooses the one least offensive. The baggage chosen gets to hear the date’s own baggage….. then heaven! If not then it’s “Sorry, you have too much baggage!” DELETE!
As I contunue weeding out the unnecessary garbage, I stop suddenly…. I still have the final 8 episodes of LOST. Now I have a dilemma…. what do I do? Do I delete them & move on…. or save them in hopes of someday making sense of that crapfest of a finale? In the end, I couldn’t do it. They are still there for all time…. just like all the Losties were in the church, waiting for Jack.
Frasier has been my most recent trip down memory lane. I like to watch the older sitcoms from start to finish. I’ve done it with Roseanne, That 70′s Show, Becker & most recently, Reba. Now it’s the Cranes & I’m almost to the end. Niles has married Daphne & Frasier is still drinking sherry at every chance, but how can you not love their surly, snotty, self-righteous & of course, pompous airs. I have 4 episodes waiting for me. I’m listening….
Dating in the Dark! I thought it was canceled & here it is, back again. I had to see if it had improved. It was unbelievable. Especially Joey who, of course, had that Jersey accent so popular these days. Joey didn’t like the fat chicks. He didn’t want some girl who’d “let go of herself after havin’ a few kids” & that’s just what he told the 3 prospects when he first met them in the dark. He even did the ‘Ray Charles Wrist Check’ , grabbing up their wrists, looking for fat. He decided Natasha was a chubby & wasn’t for him. Later, a computer decided they WERE compatible, so a dark date was next. He proceeded to feel her up & down, checking for fat. When she realized what an asshole he was, you could see in her dark-light eyes, she knew he was a freak & just wanted to get away. Nope… the show hasn’t changed. DELETE.
I’ve had Hot in Cleveland stockpiled for a few weeks now. I watched a few episodes last night to catch up a bit. The show’s gotten better. I still think Valerie Bertinelli could get sent off somewhere & no one would notice. This is Wendie Malick’s show & is only funny when she’s in the scenes. Betty White has been toned down a bit & her one-liners remind me of Sophia from Golden Girls. As for Daphne (Jane Leeves), I keep expecting Niles to show up to smell her hair.
Last but hardly least, my new favorite show Medium, is on my DVR. Thanks to Flipit, it’s become my obsession. I have ‘season passed’ it on my DVR. Two episodes run nightly on Lifetime & I have just finished watching NBC’s 5th season finale & now they have started again with the series pilot. Seasons 6 & 7 are from CBS, so Lifetime doesn’t air them. I just have to say that this show is way more than a medium helping the DA’s office solve crimes. It’s a love story between Allison & Joe Dubois. I can’t get enough of it. I want a Joe in my life!
There are other shows on my DVR, like 6 episodes of Good Eats with Alton Brown. Ten episodes of The Simpsons that my kids watch when they’re bored. I have numerous movies, that I’ve yet to watch. I’m saving them for a rainy day. Have you learned anything about me now that you know what’s on my DVR? What’s on yours?
