Since we're TV junkies, and because we love to share and/or spit out our opinions about anything and everything, I wanted to let you know what we've been watching lately and how we feel about it.
1. Top Chef Season 8. This season is set in Washington, D.C., and the contestants seem pretty fun (but maybe not as strong as those in previous seasons). In keeping with our game of picking our favorites (two guys and one girl each--and we've picked the winner every year since we started our game) during the season premiere, we picked three chefs each to root for. I can't even remember the names of the contestants we chose right now, but I know who we didn't choose, and that's Angelo. I'm sure he's good, but he's a tool and a half. I'd like to see him wear a little less seersucker and a little more humility, and I can't wait to see him crash and burn during the team challenges. ("Crashed and burned, eh, Mav?" "Slider. . ." [sniff, sniff] ". . .You stink." Oh, Top Gun, how I love thee.)
2. Breaking Bad. Technically we're not watching this currently because the season finale was last week, but I feel like I should take every opportunity that I can to shout from the rooftops about how everyone and their mom should be watching this show (unless your mom doesn't like drug dealers and brutal violence). You can get it on Netflix and catch up on AMC during the summer, bitch.
3. True Blood. Vampire porn just gets more and more fun, doesn't it? And this season boasts a lot more pups, which means that Mitch is more into the show than he was before. Is it just me, or is Eric getting sexier by the episode?
4. Friday Night Lights. Eric the Vampire may be getting sexier, but he's got nothing on Coach Eric Taylor or Tim Riggins. (Or on Tammy or Black Tyra, if you're reading this and aren't as into the sexy men.) The show seems to be getting a little more raw, and I still haven't made it through an episode without crying. Also, a short scene where Matt and Julie play Scrabble has helped my phone Scrabble scores tremendously; za is a word. Thanks, Matt Sarasen!
