T.V. Tuesday: Volume 1 Issue 3
Saturday and Sunday were stay at home days (mostly) and I used the time to knit and catch up on some programming.
First on Saturday I watched two episodes from last season’s Covert Affairs, which returns to USA’s lineup this evening. I started watching the series when it premiered last summer, mostly on DVR and OnDemand as sitting still during the summer is near impossible for me. I’m not really sure I like the show. I do know a few things though…
1. Piper Perabo is not one of my top 100 actresses. I didn’t much care for her acting in Coyote Ugly and I don’t much care for it in this series either. She seems fake and not fake in the good way a CIA operative should be, like fake in that she is reading lines and trying to match up her facial expressions. It results in a giant train wreck.
2. Christopher Gorham IS in my top 100 actors. I love his character Auggie. I sort of wish that Auggie still had his sight so that he could be a field operative. I am not going to lie or bypass the fact that he is very attractive, as evidenced by this photo.
Sure I could have gone with this one,
3. There is something about Peter Gallagher. Mostly it is the eyebrows, but there is something else that I can’t quite put my finger on, but I do enjoy him.
4. And finally, I cannot look at this character without thinking of the movie Soul Man. And that is all I am going to say on that subject.
My DVR is set to record this season and being that it is pretty thinned out on recordings right now, I am sure I will be watching during my weekend knitting sessions.
On Sunday I settled in to catch up on this season’s episodes of Flashpoint. When the series first began, I was going to watch and then something happened and I didn’t watch. Then last season I picked it up again and am totally in love with the show. I am finding an affinity for Canadian produced television shows. I have the first two seasons on DVD which I need to catch up on, but will have plenty of time this summer. I am totally in love with Hugh Dillon and his character Ed.
Also, I think Amy Jo Johnson is just adorable.
imdb!). CBS started this season’s run a little early when they pulled CHAOS from their lineup. If you haven’t watched, you should, but the show centers around a Toronto (I am assuming by the overview shots) Emergency Response Unit team (think SWAT meets Criminal Minds psychology). It is jam packed with action and clever puzzle solving. It is a cop show, but has more of a human psyche element to it. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite cop dramas.
And that is today’s show. Stay tuned next week when we discuss the season premier of Covert Affairs, games four and five and possibly six of the Stanley Cup Finals, and Friday’s episode of Flashpoint. If time permits, and someone, i.e. me, watches So You Think You Can Dance, expect coverage of that as well. Thank you for tuning in and we’ll see you next week.
