we both can’t wait for the new season of Rescue Me, John got me hooked on that one. i had my first taste of 24 last night and boy is that stressful – it’s a great show but my heart rate was up for 2 straight hours. i’d never seen an episode before and was pretty impressed. another big show neither john or i have ever seen would be Lost. everyone’s talking about it – i was just never compelled to watch it but maybe it’s worth a go? although it’s the season for big network season premieres, still i must admit my fave shows are usually found on Discovery Channel and Showcase (shh ;p) and since i’ve gotten digital cable, IFC has become my new best friend.
just as i looked over at john and said – ‘where have all the mid-season stupid reality tv shows gone?’ i see an ad for ‘skating with celebrities‘. laura is a junky for this kind of thing, dancing with the stars brightened up her summer and she’s ecstatic that it’s coming back. the kind of show i was talking about would be like…temptation island, paradise hotel, the chair… my roommate in boston was addicted to the sleazy cheat on your bf/gf shows or hook up with as many people as you can for money shows. aside from the ‘good’ reality shows like Holmes on Homes and some makeover/renovation shows that i’m completely addicted to, what i really look forward to is Amazing Race. i swear my sister and i would totally kick butt on that show – we’re fairly well travelled between the two of us, we speak 3 languages, street smart and not too bad to look at (maybe, perhaps). The last season was a family edition and they stayed mainly in the continental US so it was a bit of a snoozer.
