Summer TV

It’s summer, and you would think my TV watching would have slowed down.

Alas, no. I started watching The Starter Wife. Meh. So I was wary when I started watching Army Wives, but it is AWESOME. Wow, great characterization, 4 different women and a man who form bonds based on their husbands and wife being in the Army. You have the lady who is the leader, you have the abused wife (but her abuser is not who you think), the feisty wife, the woman with a struggling marriage and the sole husband of a colonel who just returned after 2 years overseas. The first episode was a little off for me, but by the end of it, I was hooked. And the third was a stunning cliffhanger.

I’m also catching up on The Unit, which I stopped watching when American Idol was on. I know, shallow girl. I like the show, but not enough to bump AI.

I’m watching Smallville and Roswell now that I have a bit more room on Tivo. Jane Seymour as Jensen Ackles’s mom? And is John Schneider still not the cutest? That gorgeous hair. I’m not as enamored of Roswell, but Izzy is on it.

Then there was a show on National Geographics, I think, about pararescuers. I told my son, “That looks like Lackland.” I spent many summers next door to Lackland, and I teach near there. He blew me off, but I could have sworn I saw Wilford Hall in the background. (I was born there – Dad was in the AF.) Finally the pararescuer candidates were talking about going to Schlitterbahn, and they boarded a bus with Lackland on it – I was right! Just from looking at the terrain and the sky. And the water tower. So I have 2 more episodes of that to watch.

We watched For Your Consideration and Crank on DVD last night. Don’t bother, though I’m thinking Crank would make a good erotica novel.

Today is the dh’s party, so I’ve got to get his cake, do the floors and one more round of straightening. See, being blocked is good for the house.

I loved John Schneider on the Dukes of Hazzard when I was younger, and I really liked him as Clark's dad on Smallville. He has aged well.

Whew... how do you manage all of that? You're amazing!

Have fun with the party!!

April, it's not too much. I cut Roswell, because it's just another teen soap, but Army Wives and The Unit only come on once a week, and Smallville 3 times. Gilmore Girls is still my daily dose. Apparently I've not seen all of season 2 ;)

ooh, for a sec, i thought this was your painterboy who just painted your bedroom white. :)

hope the party rocked his flipflops off.

Ha, Dawn - that will never happen. Though if I could get Jared to paint....

I still haven't painted the living room. Was going to do it this weekend but now we're busy. Again.
