tv on a 3-day weekend

I just LOVE 3-day weekends.

I usually have big plans like cleaning the apartment, doing laundry, going to the gym, etc. But what always happens is that I catch up with my TV and eat. A LOT. For example, I rarely ever eat donuts but this weekend, we passed by Krispy Kreme and I think I inhaled about 6. YIKES.

And I think I totally overdosed on TV too. I caught up with most shows (except Studio 60 and Gilmore Girls) and I blew through a cumulative total of 10+ episodes to get almost-but-not-quite caught up with Smallville and Friday Night Lights.

Honestly, I’m not sure why I still watch Smallville sometimes, lol. Lex and Lana (the characters and their relationship) are ruined to me and I’m finding myself really loving Chloe. WHAT IS GOING ON?!

But Friday Night Lights is a completely different show and gawd, I absolutely love it. I cry for Jason, I get angry at Smash, I am sad for Matt, I am horrified yet understanding about the Street/Taylor lawsuit, and I go “Awww” for Matt/Julie and Coach/Tami. This show? It sure makes me feel. I especially love all the men. They’re the ones that make this show work for me. The ladies are great too (except Tyra — after 13 episodes, I haven’t warmed up to her at all) but they don’t really hold a candle to Coach, Matt, Jason, Tim, Smash, and Landry. *hugs them all*

So I’m watching the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy and all of a sudden, I see an old friend of mine from high school!!! He was playing a paramedic at the beginning of the episode and he actually had a few lines talking to Derek. Is that weird OR WHAT?! Back in high school, he was always the one who tried out for school plays/musicals so I’m not surprised to find that he’s still working at it. I’m so happy for him. We weren’t super close or anything but we had a lot of mutual friends so we kinda ran around the same circles and went to school events together as part of a big group. (Robyn, if you’re reading this, it was Tim!) The other big surprise of the episode was the very end. You know what I’m talking about. Mmmm. 😀 Also, Izzie needs to learn when to keep her mouth shut. Chastising George about his marriage was SO not appropriate at that time. I used to love her so much. But now, I can’t stand her. I think I might even like George more than her. Which is saying a lot.

The series finale of The OC is just days away. The penultimate episode was great but I couldn’t watch it without feeling sad. I did love the following moments:

— Ryan: I suddenly have the urge to listen to Death Cab and….read comic books.
Seth: Really?
Ryan: No.
— the callbacks to prior storylines and characters… Lindsay/Sadie, making a list of everyone Ryan’s punched in Newport
— Taylor diving into the kitchen before shooting her mom. BWAH.
— Ryan: I don’t know if I mentioned…
Seth: You did.
— Ryan and Seth becoming blood brothers
— Seth: If we could’ve turned this into a body swap comedy, we could’ve squeezed another year or two out of this.

I have high hopes for the finale. *sobs*

I think I’m giving up America’s Next Top Model. I have too many shows to keep up with and something has to go. Especially since I’d like to give The Black Donnellys a try.
