Fighting an uphill battle against my PVRs diminishing freespace

Watched log for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

Well, I didn’t really get around to watching much of anything these last couple days, with all the family stuff going on. Here’s what I did watch.

SNL Goes Commercial (11/05/05)

Everybody Hates Chris: Everybody Hates Greg

Joey: Bachelor Thanksgiving

I also watched the first 3 episodes of Full Metal Panic: FUMOFFU which I got through Blockbuster online.

Watched log for Tuesday

Gilmore Girls

Last night’s episode was pretty good. Lane and the band were one of the minor story threads, and it was good to see them, even though Zack was being a dick about Bryan writing a song called “Lane”. I also am waiting for the “other shoe to drop” with Luke not telling Lorelai about his kid. It’s bad enough that I find myself yelling at Luke through the TV. The other thing I want to mention is Rory and Lorelai’s “prison stories” and Lorelai describing the time she was talked to about her virtue by a Rabbi, a Catholic Priest and… I can’t remember but it was funny.

My Name Is Earl

Another hilarious episode. Being a Subaru fan, I was appreciative of the mention of the BRAT being in the shop (which is a callback to the episode where Joy and Darnell were trying to kill Earl). I was rolling when Earl’s mom kept offering to leave him money on the porch. I certainly hope that Beau Bridges makes more guest appearances. One more funny moment was when Earl and Randy gave their dad a “Hitler” mustache when their parents Jewish friends were coming over. Priceless.

For those not able to watch all 18 hours of primetime television that are on every night, I’m doing a public service, taking the bullet and watching as much as I can and letting you guys know what’s good and what’s crap. Some things I decided were crap and haven’t even bothered with, but what I’ve watched so far of new series, I’ll give you the scoop.

Hello. The reason I’m starting this ‘blog is to document and comment on the rather ridiculous amount of TV I watch nearly daily. I will try to update daily, but may not. Please keep in mind, this is only what I watch. I don’t have any professional reason for watching.

I’m going to post here some of my prior ramblings on TV, including my grades of the new shows and the new seasons.
