The Lost Boys (well at least part of it)

After watching the first part of it (which I think I’ve seen only bits of) I have a  greater understanding of a few more of the jokes from the Tree House of Horror episode of The Simpsons where Bart becomes a vampire.

That 70’s Show: Fun It

Stacked: iPod

American Casino: The New Spa

Alias: The Horizon

Wow. This is probably one of the most surprising and best episodes of the season. Best because it concentrated on Sydney and Vaughn and also Jack was totally bad-ass.

The Venture Brothers: A Very Venture Christmas Special

Doctor Who: Eps. 9 and 10 of 2005 series.

Watched these episodes on my PSP. I was testing out the converter program. It works pretty good. Also the episodes were really good.

What I Like About You: For Love or Money

Watched log for Sunday

Saturday Night Live; Host: Jason Lee, Musical Guest: Foo Fighters

Good episode. Monologue was funny, Weekend Update good, “‘Stachen” (as in moustache) talk show sketch good, with Horatio Sanz totally losing it. The best sketch was “The Falconer” with an Indecent Proposal spoof.

Celebrity Poker Showdown: Kevin Nealon, Oksana Baiul, Nicholas Gonzalez, Richard Belzer, Dean Cain

Desperate Housewives: Coming Home

Really, the best part of this episode was the first five minutes, when the depths of George’s dementedness are shown and Bree not understanding what the life-size “Bree-al doll” was for. (I want credit for the coining of the “Bree-al doll” moniker.

Grey’s Anatomy: Owner of a Lonely Heart

Leeches, quints, breakfast, inmates and lonely Izzie. Izzie is forced to take care of a quint that is likely to die, Christina continues to take babysteps in her relationship with Burke and also condescends to patients again. Mere does… not a whole lot, George has leech problems and Olivia-the-nurse problems. Alex has to deal with basically killing the thirsty guy from last week.  

The Dead Zone: A Very Dead Zone Christmas 

Kind of a silly episode. Doesn’t really affect the continuity any, so even though I still have 7 episodes of The Dead Zone from last season that I haven’t watched yet, it’s ok to watch this one.

The Boondocks: The Reality* (A Date With the Health Inspector)**

There were parts of the episode that had me rolling, especially the white gangstas with one of them voiced by Samuel Jackson, giving the “What ain’t no country I’ve ever heard of” speech from Pulp Fiction.

*I’m not sure, but I think Cartoon Network is not giving the correct listing information for The Boondocks, because the description and title don’t seem to match the episodes. I hope that they get it straightened out, because I would hate to miss any episodes due to mis-labeling.  

**Later re-airing of this episode had the correct title. Edited 2/26/06
