What I'm Watching

With the writer's strike now officially over we can all be excited about our favorite shows coming back to our TV sets. But it will still be at least 4 weeks for most comedies and closer to 8 weeks for dramas and serials. So what am I watching in the mean time?

LOST: No surprise here. I have talked about this show before. It's pretty cool with all the new online stuff that corresponds to the show. By far the show that has made me think the most.

Big Brother 9: 'Til Death do you Part: I watched the first BB and I thought it was cool, but this one absolutely blows it out of the water. In addition to the 24/7 webcams that you can watch on the website there is a show called Big Brother: After Dark on Showtime Too nightly from 11pm-2am. It's rated TV-MA and is really good because it's almost totally uncensored and it's when the house guests are making the best deals and doing weird things.

Survivor: Micronesia (Fans vs. Favorites): This version is pretty sweet with favorites (former players) going against first time contestants but huge fans of survivor. It's gonna be good.

What are you guys watching these days?

UPDATE: Also, there is some sort of Valentine's Day special hopper of games for Halo 3 this weekend and they are giving rewards for certain things people do, but they won't tell us. Just thought you all should know.

great topic. during the strike i finally had time to watch all of arrested development and now i dvr episodes of law & order and watch those. there's usually 5 or 6 on per day but now i'm starting to see reruns so i'm going to start watching the wire soon. i contemplated watching lost for a little bit but decided against it. i'm also getting myself caught up on episodes of entourage and curb your enthusiasm that i've missed over the past few seasons.

The next Futurama movie releases March 18th so I'm hosting a party for that. I watch SC every morning before work, Seinfeld, Around the Horn, and PTI after work until I do other things, then I don't really watch anything at night. If I'm watching something I'm watching myself play a vid...and yes I know that hasn't happened for a little while.

Daymonster said...

I recommend the PTI podcast. You really don't need to see Tony and Micheal to get enjoyment out of the show.

Dammer said...

Very true. Especially when they have special guests.

Dammer said...

I start my flex schedule next week. 6:30 to 4. I'll have every other Monday starting 3 Mondays from now off. I couldn't get a Friday unforunately. I watch TV while I eat breakfast.

Daymonster said...

K of C I am super hungover may still durnk and pissed, please listen to my story.

So I went to this party last night, I was playing some COD4 and then I got a phone call, I knew the party was going on but I really wanted to play COD4, long story short they talked me into going.
So I went to the local liquire store bougth some booze and went. On arival I start drinking, then they make me play these super gay games, like get to know you camp games. I suggested Kings cup or quarters, no one went for it. Needless to say I was tilted hard, so I drank more. Then a chick challenged me to a beer chuging contest, and another dude joined to shotgun, he thougth that was faster, so i beat those people and kept drinking. As the night went on people got lamer, most people stoped drinking and such, not I. So I tryed to get people to keep partying, I suggested we dont go to sleep until all the booze is gone, no one really went for it. So at that point I just enjoyed my BV and coke and the beer I had in my other hand. This is where the night gets really bad. Some chick started telling me that I am self destructive, wtf is that all about. I am just enjoying some booze, and she goes off telling me I am really self destructive. What a pretentious bitch. Naturally I just finish the booze and ask to go to the bar, eventually I make it home. Point of the night/story is, I really miss drinking with people who, A. dont make me play gay games, B. like to actually drink, C. dont think drinking is being self destructive.

Final note, I need a drink right now bad, and I SB wakes up before Noon, I am skipping all my classes and getting wasted! I hope to god he does.

Pablito Neal said...

if you don't think it's self-destructive, why do you make no drinking pacts? why not just be drunk all the time?

Dammer said...

That story is downright horrible. Did the chick explain why you were being self-destructive? Did you explain to her that she doesn't know what she's talking about? That you have many successfull friends that consume mass quantities of booze and don't see very many long-term consequences?

Josey WaIes said...

No Dammer I just drank. Also I am in class because fucking SB did not wake up but I am leaving as soon as this class is over. Dammer should I come visit? I just have to find my car first and then i could be there in like an hour.

Pete said...

haha i can confirm that josey was indeed very wasted an angry last night. i made him a pizza, which he was very excited about, but he passed out before it was finished cooking.

i heard josey yelling at me to get out of bed around 11:30, but i am hanging out with rose later and we have dinner reservations for tonight because i could not go out last night due to a soccer game. i knew if i got up, josey and i would get wasted, which would not end up being a good thing.

Josey WaIes said...

I am pissed because now I know when I skip my next classes I know pete will not booze with me, fuck!

Dammer said...

You should come tomorrow. After our dinner last night Dana and I started to watch LOTR, at which point her stomach erupted in pain and she went home for fear of puking all over my couch. In other words she feels bad and wants to make it up to me tonight. Me and a couple work friends are going to possibly bowl and drink tomorrow afternoon/evening then hit up a bar later. Of course, I plan on sleeping late and then video gaming myself until we do said things so if you wanna partake let me know. If you come before noon I can almost guarantee that you can meet my girlfriend, she'll want to go eat somewhere before she has to work and I can invite you.
