It is Tuesday and sadly, there is not really anything on that I watch tonight. “Dancing with the Stars” will be back shortly, and the results will air on Tuesday nights. Until then, I am just going to ramble on. I have given a lot of thought into the shows I watch religiously. Some of them aren’t even really that great anymore. I continue to watch out of habit mostly. Let’s take a look at which shows I think went to complete shit and lost my interest nearly entirely.
Ok, I am going to start with my utter anger with ABC. I have grown up watching the ABC soaps. My mother and grandmother had them on everyday. I have memories of the soaps as far back at the late 80s/early 90s. How the hell could they cancel my soaps? “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” were my favorites. “General Hospital” has always been an “okay” show, but it was always the one I could miss for a few days and not worry. My favorite character was Kendall Hart Slater. I have even used that name as a forum alias, and an in-game name. Some of my friends only call me “Kendall,” and I answer to both. It is all very involved and it has a long history in my life. I was disappointed with the final results for “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.” For now I will continue to watch “GH” because I really like the new girl they have playing Maxie. Her name is Jen Lilley, and she is terrific. If you want to check her out, you can find her Twitter here.
Next on my fail list is “Two and a Half Men.” I am a huge Charlie Sheen fan. I love everything about him, including the fact that he is a piece of shit sometimes. Drug addiction is something I have battled with as well, and I can understand just how hard it really is to beat. Do I agree with his actions? Hell no. I think he was stupid to act like that and leave a show that was so damn good to him. Chuck Lorre did the best he could with hiring Kutcher, but he is not all that funny. In fact, I only thought the first two episodes were laugh-worthy. I have not watched much of the show this season, I have been focusing on writing more about the first seven seasons, and occasionally looking at the other stuff with the currently season. Just don’t like the whole Kutcher/Cryer thing. Lame.
So pissed off with NBC letting Christopher Meloni go! WHY?! Ugh. Last summer was awful for the fans of “Law and Order: SVU.” Fans were crushed with all the changes. How could the show go on without Benson AND Stabler? While Season 13 has had some decent moments, it is still not the same. Kelli Giddish is a decent actress, but I don’t buy her as a police detective. Danny Pino is a great addition, but they really didn’t need him.
I guess I am hard to please when it comes to my television shows. I love so many of them, and change really hinders me. I guess I will just stick to enjoying the few shows I love and tolerating the rest.
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🙂
