James Patrick Stuart was in Bones 8x05! It was good to see Dick Roman sans sharp teeth, and I thought it funny when Booth said he was a monster and he kept repeating I'm not a monster! Fun episode, love it when Brennan danced.

I like SPN 5x04 Bitten. But then I like Cloverfield and Blairwitch, so no surprise there. Sam ate salad again. But he probably does have his protein and carb I guess? To maintain all those muscles?

Survivor - it just occured to me that Malcolm looked a lot like Orlando Bloom. Hey [livejournal.com profile] claudia603, you're still in it ;P, with Orlando Bloom as your closest ally!

The Amazing Race: Turkey - that was a very pretty episode. Love it when the first clue said Welcome to Europe, now go back to Asia. Such a lovely country, I want to go there someday.

Saw James Bond Skyfall and I enjoyed it very much - much more than the previous Craig!Bond movies. Maybe it's because then I kept comparing Bond to Bourne ( Bourne won of course ) and this year there was only that Bourne Legacy to compare it to and this time, Bond won, big time.

Anyone here have seen George Clooney's The Men Who Stare At Goats? That was HILARIOUS. What I like most about it is how serious everyone was that you could almost forget that it was actually a comedy.

Survivor:Phillipines is back yayyy!! I haven't seen it yet - [livejournal.com profile] shirebound, have you? - but I just found out that Lisa Whelchel is in it. The Lisa from The New Mickey Mouse Club of '77-'78 ( I think ) and the actress who played Blair from The Facts Of LIfe. Not that I'm much of a fan of her - Allison was my favourite mouseketeer -, but I did watch Facts of Life regularly, so it brings back lots of fond memories. I remember very well watching the Mickey Mouse Club on TV, waiting avidly for Allison especially!

Did you watch that show when you were a kid? Other than Lisa and Allison, I remember Kelly very well, and it seems that she went on to become a beauty queen? Though I guess nobody made it as big as Britney and Justin. I didn't watch the one with Britney and Justin though and I only just knew that Justin Timberlake used to be in the club when I was googling for Lisa and his pics kept turning up lol.

I've downloaded Downton Abbey 301 but haven't watched it yet. I'm so afraid that Mary and Matthew *still* won't get married. I wouldn't mind Mary getting back with Ser Jorah Sir Richard but Mary/Matthew is still my OTP!

Revenge: If Nolan weren't gay, I'd totally ship him with Emily. The way he tried to get her to just let go, that just made me go awww .... wild speculations on whodunit, with spoilers to the latest episode )

Survivor season twenty-four ( omg isn't that awesome? ) premier was a wonderful surprise because I was not expecting it to air this early. I thought it'd be some time in September! And if there's Survivor there'll be The Amazing Race and sure enough TAR S20 will premier this Sunday! And I totally hyperventilated when I found out that Brandon and Rachel from The Big Brother will be one of the teams racing. I said it here and oh, I'm so glad because it means they're still together, unless they're racing as friends of course, but I think not. Needless to say, I'll be rooting for Team Branchel!

ION, thank you [livejournal.com profile] tariana for the lovely v-gift, I need that little bit of cold here. It's 32C here and it's getting hotter by the hour. And thank you to the kind soul who has gifted me with the extra LJ paid time. MUCH appreciated *loves* ( Or was that from LJ? )

Saw New Year's Eve and I thoroughly enjoyed it, despite its poor rating ( which I found out after I watched the movie ). Loved all the Jensens in it ( Jensen this and Jensen that lol ), and omg I didn't know Ingrid was actually Michelle Peiffer until later. And Josh Duhamel! That was the first time I saw him in anything.

I think I've a new-found love for movies of this sort, you know, stories ala Love Actually ( a HUGE favourite! ) which are made up of several vignettes loosely intertwined, stories that leave you guessing on how the characters connect to each other, the epitome of chick-flicks, but chick-flicks or not, hubby and the boys loved that movie, too. Ahaha, and apparently the boys had seen Valentine's Day as well, which I haven't seen yet. And I need to find Paris, Je T'Aime, the sister movie to New York, I Love You.

Really enjoyed the last episode of The Amazing Race. Body-building omg rofl. Now I wish that the father and son team hasn't been eliminated yet. What I wouldn't give to see sweet Zac in that little ... thing. And wasn't Ernie such a patient, good man? I have yet to see him raise his voice. Lucky Cindy.

Ozzy! I really can't see him winning the million but I'm so rooting for him now, I didn't before, but now I just want him to win so very badly. And when he stood on top of that coconut tree ::HEART-DROPS:: How on earth was that even possible????

And the next day when we watched James Franco's The Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Caesar was standing on top of that tree, we were like (((((( OZZY ))))))

Anyone here has watched that movie? I didn't enjoy Wahlberg's Apes so I wasn't expecting much with this, but oh my, what a pleasant surprise! I thought it was good from the get go. Eeeeep, Caesar was totally eerie when he went through his transformation, his eyes. And I was thinking that this movie would have been awesome as the prequel to the original 1968 Planet of the Apes.

Survivor South Pacific : Omg why haven't I seen this guy before? Because apparently I had missed not one but two seasons with him in it. Read more... )

Fringe : And why oh why haven't I seen this show before??? I watched the pilot twice and I managed to get hubby to watch it with me ( he liked it, too ) with the usual "It's like The X-Files" bait lol. And I'm so happy that I got three whole seasons waiting for me and from I hear ( from Jas for one ) it's all good. And season 4 is coming soon though I'm a concerned about watching the new season without watching the previous ones first. What if any of the characters are no longer there because I like them all!

I like Olivia from the get go. She reminded me of Cate Blanchett and the girl from That 70s show, Laura Prepon. And she's just this right side of pretty too. So happy to see John Noble. That was a lovely surprise, seeing Denethor :)

Saw the trailer of Falling Skies on TV this morning. Noah Wyle! Aliens! I'm sold.

Finally got to watch TAR18 finale last night and lolol I don't think I've ever laughed so much in any of the season finales before. I completely cracked up especially during the first half of the show and what a fine, feel-good finale that was. But then, all of TAR episodes gave me that feel-good upper!

Poor Zev and Justin. It certainly wasn't their day, was it? Read more... )

TAR Australia has started. I'm hoping to find the episodes on the internet but so far no luck yet. It'll tide me over until the next season of TAR. Haven't heard anything of TAR:Asia yet but I hope they're continuing with it!

Survivor. You know what would be the perfect twist to it? To have the Redemption Island castaways go against the Murolinos. Hahah, I can just imagine what Rob's expression would be like lol. Yeah, not much of a fan here. I feel very much like Dave when he wrote Rob Rob Rob Rob on his voting paper. Totally rooting for Mike and I hope he'll be the one who stays. Last night episode I was hoping that spoilers )
layne67: (TAR passport)
my TV night life is now complete.

Oh gosh, The Amazing Race:Unfinished Business last night was so much fun! I love all the teams ( with the exception of two teams but then you need them in this sort of show lol ), but oh, how I wish that they had brought back the teams from the earlier seasons. I love the brother-sister team from Season 1, and to see Reichen/Chip again ( though technically they wouldn't qualify since they had already won their million ), or Lena-Kristy ( the girls putting on lipstick before they faced Phil, I'd never forget that ), or Kelly/John and Jonathan/Victoria - their bickerings were so, so precious!

And I love it that they brought in Boston Rob and Evil Russell for Survivor:Redemption Island. I'm hoping that Russell would change his game somewhat. Surely after not winning in the finales two times running, he'd have learnt something? Yeah, I like him even if most times I felt like throttling him!

So. These are now my regular, not-to-be-missed TV shows, in the order of my level of anticipation and excitement in waiting for new eps each week :

These )

I enjoyed that last episode of Chuck so very much. Omg Morgan!! I literally fell out of the chair laughing that was so funny! Read more... )

I'm enjoying Sela Ward's character in CSI:NY more and more, and dare I say it ... yes, I think I like Jo even better than Stella, and I like Stella a LOT. No wonder she was said to be the favourite Sister!

My favourite people from Survivor and The Amazing Race Asia had been voted out / eliminated. In a way, it's kind of good in the sense that it took the tension out of watching the shows. I can now watch them without my heart in my mouth and my toes all curled up, thinking, oh no, please please please don't vote her out, or oh boys, why on *earth* did you choose *that* detour????. So yeah, I'll be all relaxed and smiling and not be frustrated at all watching the remaining teams battle it out in TARA finale and the rest of the tribe trying to outplay outwit outlast each other.

But having said that, I'm so happy that my favourite team is still in the running for the top three in The Amazing Race. GO DOCTORS!!!

Last night's The Amazing Race Asia was so awesome! This is the first time they're airing the original TAR at the same time as TARA and while both are great fun, I'm thinking that for this time around, TARA is a bit more awesome than TAR. Oh I'll always like Phil better than Alan but maybe because I can emphatize with fellow Asians much better and to a certain extent I know the way they think better than I do the Americans. Maybe.

Brenda of Survivor continues to be amazing. Omg she's so cool and so smart *fangirls her* I don't quite like Nay but I hope she won't be voted out anytime soon as she's one of Brenda's strongest allies but how I wish she'd cool it down. And hey, [livejournal.com profile] lassiterfics, Brenda kind of make me think of you :))

And I hope Chase will continue to be on Brenda's side. There's just something so strong and good and trusworthy in the name "Chase". Like Chase Edmunds of 24. And House's Chase! Read more... )

I wasn't exactly thrilled when they first revealed the racers in The Amazing Race Asia Season 4. I mean, come on! They're mostly celebrities ( again ), young and hot and sexy and incredibly giggly, most of them anyway *grumbles* I'm thinking that those people have been invited to audition and I know that in the original American TAR, the casting crew scout for interesting people ( read pretty ) to take part but the eye candies are maybe, like, a team or two only. Beauty queens here and there, models, a few of the lesser-known actors. I undestand the need to get these people in, I do, but the teams in TARA 4? I'd say 6 out of the ten teams racing are made up of celebrities *huffs*

I'm totally rooting for the 3 teams that I think are genuine - the two best friends, the husband and wife team, and the father and daughter team. And maybe the Rebel Best Pals. The rest ... meh.

But having said that, last night first leg was totally AWESOME, and hey, they began in my country! It was fun and vibrant and colourful and I'm so glad my teams are still in. Though it was a close call for Dad/Daughter team.

Survivor Nicaragua. It's still too early to say I guess, but this thing about dividing them by age ... IDK, but it felt kind of wrong to see the younger team flaunting their youth, vigour and vitality, sashaying in the way they did when they had their first challenge. I'm hoping that they'll reshuffle the tribes soon. But I like the girl who found the medallion, Brenda I think her name is? She reminds me of Kristin Kreuk! And Fabio omg, that guy is unbelievable lol.

The Amazing Race ( the original version ) premiers next week. I'm looking forward to see how the doctor plays the game. It's a first time I see a doctor in TAR, plenty of lawyers before but no doctor yet. I hope she'll do better than Dr McSteamy did in Survivor!

Did anyone else see the Jimmy Kimmel Aloha To Lost? That was hilarious. And I thought I was going to die from happiness when Jimmy said that Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson could now go on The Amazing Race together. I hope that Jerry Bruckheimer heard that! *wishes long and hard*

And that Survivor spoof! I almost cracked a rib, I was laughing so hard! I thought that was going to be a genuine alternate ending and I didn't get it until Jeff walked in omgomgomg *is still laughing*

I wish I know how to do the video clip thing but there's always YouTube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtCMFf0dGAY

And a couple of caps, God, that was one good laugh I had there!

The tribe has spoken )

Speaking of Survivor, I saw an episode of its first season - Survivor:Borneo. The show was such a baby back then! And Jeff looked almost exactly the same then as he does now. He got better of course, and more confident, but it was such fun seeing how the show and Jeff were when the show was in its infancy.

I remember the hoopla caused by the show, so much excitement here as it was held at an island off the coast of East Malaysia. Haha, I guess calling it Survivor:Borneo sounded more exotic. Survivor:Malaysia? Meh, so tame :)

Wow, that was intense. I got spoiled for the winner, saw it on the Yahoo headlines ( aarrgh! ) but I still enjoyed it nevertheless and I'm satisfied with the result.

Going to the movies this evening. I want to watch Clash Of The Titans while hubby wants Date Night and how ironic is that? We couldn't decide so we're not booking the tickets, just go there and see what's available/convenient. The reviews for Clash over here isn't so good but oh, Sam Worthington!

On another note, I'm glad that I watched Survivor after SPN last night. I laughed so hard at the mud race that I quite forgot to be depressed.
