A Few of My Favorite Things

Filed under: Humor — missedmanners @ 12:16 am

Sorry I’ve been semi-absent as of late. Things have been piling up and writing seems to be the first thing to go, like a bra during the first chords of September Rain.

I always get excited during this time of the year. I abhor the loss of summer and the only way I can console myself, short of booze and floozies, is to sink myself up to my clicker wrist in fall television. Here’s what I’m getting geared up for:

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: I’m always surprised that people don’t know about this show. It is one of the two funniest shows on television. I won’t blather on for hours about how Dennis has perfect pecs, or Mac dances like he’s fighting or how Charlie can’t read. Just watch it. Now. Seriously, go to hulu.com and watch all of the episodes. For free. Stop reading. Go there. Now.

Sons of Anarchy: Watched the first two episodes of this. Sopranos on harleys. Seriously. Biker chicks too. Incredibly entertaining.

Fringe: This stars the guy who played Denethor in The Lord of the Rings movies, so I kind of have to watch it. First episode mentions ketamine and LSD as the secrets to telepathy. I fucking KNEW it. Sold.

Heroes: It was a little hokey last season, but fuck it man, any show where people can fly and shoot fireballs out of their hands? I’ll watch it. If I have to pretend to like Grey’s Anatomy to stay in a conversation long enough to get a girl’s pants off, I should be rewarded with a live action comic book.

  2. Good call on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I was on Hulu today, checking out the different clips from the shows. Charlie as Serpico lol. Last weekend, we rented season one – so funny. It’s such an underrated show. I just posted the clip called “A Ton of Acid” on my bf’s myspace page. That clip is hilarious.

  3. Fringe has potential, but within the first ten minutes I could tell you what would happen the rest of the episode, including the big twist. (Writer’s minds are evil.) Although, anyone who hates butterscotch pudding is worth listening to. It’s a fact, like cake batter icecream is awesome and sex is better with… Well, nevermind that last part.

    You’re missing out on Dexter.

    Looking for a water tank,
