Saturday is the “Recycle Bin” for TV. I’ve definitely got my night planned. I’m falling asleep on the couch. More after the jump…….
I listened to my sister and watched “Ghost Whisperer” last night. It’s “Sixth Sense” meets “Cold Case”. Last night’s plot is what made me watch. The GW went on a cruise ship full of dead people. The DP’s were all upset because the ship was going to be made into razor blades and they wouldn’t have a home anymore. (watch out, your Schick could be possessed). This one girl ghost kept trying to make out with this guy in room M108. His wife was pissed that she wasn’t getting laid and told anyone who would listen including GW. Ghost girl thought he was her man and she tried to kill him because she was dead. Got that? It all ended happily though. GW figured out who really was ghost girl’s man & that she didn’t need to kill him. It was her own fault she was dead. Dumb bitch slipped on her own sweat and fell. Everyone went into the light, all except one ghost, who liked being a ghost. She stayed when the ship was no longer going to be razor blades but a floating museum. I just have one question. Who was the dude in bed that GW called to talk to all the ghosts over the phone? A boy GW? There are more than her?
Enough ghost talk. Let’s get on with our Saturday night viewing choices…….
