Blue October 'Foiled'
FOX BROADCASTING NEWSLETTER
WEEK OF FEBRUARY 4, 2007
ALL-NEW TUESDAY 9/8c
While battling for his handicapped parking spot, House deals with a teenage gypsy whose family refuses modern medical treatments.
That is the description, as you can see, from the Fox Network promoting the television show House.
I busted out laughing when I first read that.
I tried watching the first season of House on DVD from Netflix. Yes, I found the show somewhat entertaining and yet I found nothing to keep me watching more than 12 episodes. House only got 2 out of 5 stars from me on the Netflix grading scale (meaning that I “didn’t like it”).
And when I read the above description, my first thought was that the writers are now coming up empty for stories and their ripping off something from Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman. They just swapped out the horses with handicapped parking. Come to think of it, that’s rather creative.
To me, House got tired real quick. I know one thing… I wouldn’t want to live in the city where Dr. House practices because that town is LOADED with rare and hard to diagnose diseases. The whole damn place should be quarantined or burned to the ground for a good old fashioned cleansing.
And since I’m talking TV, here’s a list of the television shows that I have given up on:
Ugly Betty (funny but I found my mind wandering when on)
Ghost Whisperer (they dropped the hot black chick and therefore wiped away half of their cleavage quotient and the stories were getting sappier)
Extreme Championship Wrestling
The last one has actually been replaced by Wrestling Society X (where you can watch full episodes on the website) Tuesday nights at 10:30 on MTV. The WSX is more like ECW from back in the day. It’s violent and it pleases me very much. There’s barbed wire, exploding fences, and electrified wires. It’s everything I love and it’s actually on MTV. There are wrestlers that I have longed missed like New Jack, Kaos, and one of my favorites… Confederate Currency Chris Hamrick.
I haven’t been this excited about a new wrestling promotion since my discovery of the ECW. How’s that for irony?
And ladies, if you don’t have a Valentine this year, check out this website. Whether your investment is short time or in the far 10 to 20 years from now, you may be able to find someone who won’t mind robbing a convenience store, knocking someone off, or even tossing your salad.
The site has available men both straight and gay. Women are encouraged to post, but so far to my displeasure, none have. I’m looking for some lady convicted of embezzlement or involuntary manslaughter. Call me a snob if you want, but I have to set limits even for love.
It’s just too damn bad that Amy “The Long Island Lolita” Fisher is a free woman and not looking for love on that website.
