Patient Huge Tits?

June 9, 2009

“Well, look who’s back.”

My ears perked up at the dulcet tones in episode two, season three of Arrested Development (yes, it’s down to people like me that the show was ever cancelled. I knew I’d like it, but I put it off until it was too late.)

Imagine my surprise at being greeted by the beautemous crimson visage of one Coco Peru, star of boozetube favorite flick, Girls Will be Girls, as a wig store owner.

Coco: “Are you going to buy this time, or are you just curious?”

Tobias Funke: I suppose I’m buy curious. I have a big tv opportunity.

Coco: This is where all the big tvs come.

I guess things didn’t work out with Dr. Perfect and the big move after all. IMDB alerts me of something called Girls Will be Girls: Delivering Coco, Part I which promises that Coco’s mom needs her liver, but Evie wants it too. The only question is, why am I not watching that right now?


Keeping up with the Televisional Joneses

May 2, 2009

A couple weeks ago a good friend of The Booze Tube shared the list he had made up to remind himself what shows to watch throughout the week. Like me, this friend tends to watch tv the day after it airs, so, in a semblance of order, for me, that’s….

Monday: Huh, nothing.

Tuesday: One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, How I Met Your Mother, Greek, and Chuck

Wednesday: Huh, nothing.

Thursday: Lost.

Friday: Holy Cats! The Office, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and Ugly Betty.

Saturday: Dollhouse.

Shows that aren’t in season right now, but of which I am a religious follower: Secret Life of the American Teenager, Big Love, Mad Men, True Blood.

And that’s not to mention whole seasons of shows I’m just catching on DVD.  90210 (classic, not the current waste of prime time space), Melrose Place, Smallville, Flight of the Conchords, Arrested Development, and Battlestar Galactica.

Writing all that out makes me feel funny, like when Lynette lined up all of Bree Van de Kamp’s wine bottles on the porch with a note that said: “Still think you don’t have a problem?”*

But hey, when I’m a top tv blogger no one will question me! Or when I get my dream job of pairing foods with tv shows. 90s nighttime soaps go great with cheese, I mean, obviously.

*Though from what I remember, there were only like, 12 wine bottles. I guess I’d need to know the time span, because if that’s per day, then yeah, Bree totally had a problem, but if that’s over like, two weeks and she’s just lazy about recycling, then I think that’s a lot more borderline.  Incidentally, remember how Bree confesses in some later season that she sometimes fantasizes about opening the Chardonnay she knows is chilling in the fridge? What kind of assholes is she living with that keep wine in the fridge of a recovering alcoholic?
