Golden Globes

Last night I watched the Golden Globes. I had not seen any of the movies that won awards and many of the TV shows were new to me as well. I guess I need to catch up on TV and movies. The show itself was really good. Everyone dressed in black to show support for women who have been sexually harassed or abused by men in Hollywood. The #timesup hashtag was huge.

But the big deal from the show was Oprah. She won the Cecil B. DeMille Award. But her speech was simply amazing. She was very presidential. Everyone started tweeting Oprah2020. I did the same. I would love it if she ran for President. But I know she wouldn’t win. Our country is still too backwards to have a black female president. I still think she’s great.

I walked 1.45 miles today inside.

The Newsroom

Are you watching the recently new series on HBO called The Newsroom? I have watched it from the beginning and I have been skeptical about it’s success and if I even like the show. But Sunday’s episode solidified it for me. I like the show. The characters are likable and the stories are real. It goes back a couple of years in the news and shows how a cable news show could have covered some of the major stories of the day. Sunday’s episode tackled marriage equality and the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011. I really liked the way they handled the story and told about the events.

The character of Sloan Sabbith (played by Olivia Munn) really shined in Sunday’s episode. I have liked Olivia Munn since I saw her in a short lived series on NBC called Perfect Couples. It only lasted a half a season but I enjoyed her character on the show. I think she’s a good actress (even though she’s so young). She really does a great job on The Newsroom.

Have you been watching this show? What do you think? I know, too much use of Wikipedia in this post, sorry.

Obama Night

As much as I admire Obama and really want him to win the election, I'm not sure how I feel about him having a 30 minute infomercial on several stations tonight. Does anyone feel weird about it?

Update: Okay, I just watched it and it was pretty good. I know it was the images, the music, and the stories, but the video gave me chills to think he just might be our next President. I'm feeling really good about it now.

Reality Shows

Is anyone else getting tired of the reality shows? I mean, I love watching them and all but it seems like all the shows this season…..which are all ending soon….seem to be very predictable. I'm still loving Project Runway and Big Brother but I have no interest in seeing the new Survivor. I don't know. Maybe I'm just ready for a new season of TV.

Childhood Memories

There are times when things show up on the news that remind me of my childhood. That happened today when I saw that Evel Knievel died. Instantly my brain started to provide memories of my childhood.

I can remember being a kid and watching Evel on the Wide World Of Sports jumping some outrageous amount of cars or buses lined up in a row. All my brothers and sisters and I would crowd around the TV to see if he would make it or if it would be one of his crazy crashes. I'm sure a few of us were hoping that he'd crash to see him tumble on the asphalt. I also remember when he tried to jump the Snake River Canyon in 1974. I was only ten years old but remember it well. They build up to that jump was a big waste of time for a 30 second jump. Of course he didn't make it.

Anyway, it's sad to see him go but his death does bring back some fond childhood memories.

Charlie Brown Christmas

I just finished watching “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” I'm not religious or anything but that show always brings back great memories of childhood and Christmast time. Things were simpler back then. Too bad we can't go back and enjoy those great times. I think the message is a good one even though I'm not religious. I do enjoy the show. And I don't have to always catch it when it's on TV, the boyfriend has it on DVD.

BB8 Is Done

Now that the Donatos have secured their place in the final two, BB8 isn't even worth watching. I don't care for either of them so it won't be a big deal to watch the final episode on Tuesday. Yes, I know, they have been great players and deserve to win but when it gets dominated like this, the show just isn't any fun anymore. Where's the drama now? It's the drama that we all tune in to see each week. It's over now.

The View Sucks Now

I've never liked Elisabeth Hasselback. She's just stupid and her politics are fucked up. Barbara is old and irrelevant. Whoopi is okay but she's no Rosie. I think the only reason I'd tune in to see the View is Joy Behar. I like most of her politics and her opinions on topics. The rest of the show sucks. I guess it's time to take it off my DVR record list.
