woo-hoo, fall is almost here!!

by Amy K. Bredemeyer


Monk: I didn't particularly care for the enemy in this episode, he was a meanie. Monk was able to solve the case(s) in the end, but we never saw how exactly the first murder was committed... unless it was shown and I somehow missed it? I dunno, I just can't get in to this season. If this is the case for everyone, maybe it is time that they ended it.

The Goode Family: waiting to be picked up again.


The Simpsons
: September 27th

Family Guy: September 27th

American Dad: September 27th

King of the Hill: I caught it specifically because it was the series finale (which I had thought ran last spring, LoL). It wasn't anything special, just two half-hour shows. In the first episode, Bobby (who appears to have slimmed down a bit, not sure if that's a recent development or if it's just a general comparison from years before) can't find a date to the dance. Three "smart, A-list girls" decide to have some fun with him. (sidenote, why does Bobby's hairline look like it has stitches??) The makeover was very Daria in style, like the flashing of the random pics of the girls in strange hats and the like. Meanwhile, Hank and his friends decide to create a "homeless cart" four carts long. I can't figure out how in the world Hank could ground Bobby on the night of the dance when all he was doing was waiting for a phone call!

In the second episode, Peggy is going to leave Hank and Bobby alone for a night, and Hank is dreading it. They go out to eat, ordering steaks. Bobby argues with the waiter over the quality of the meat, and is promptly asked to join a meat-grading team at the local community college. WHAT THE HELL IS A MEAT EVALUATION TOURNAMENT?!? And how bad must it smell for there to be four cow carcasses hanging in a gymnasium? GROSS. And the hard-coreness is ridiculous... pepper in the eyes? hijacking of a bus? srsly? What exactly did Peggy want Hank to charter a bus for her for...? Glad Bobby could save the day, but it was ridiculous. And the final moment with the entire neighborhood coming over for the steaks that Bobby and Hank prepared on their twin grills was strange, but appropriate enough for the show.

How I Met Your Mother: September 21st.

Little People, Big World: October 19th.

Lincoln Heights: The new house is crazy big, sucky they don't get to actually live there. Lizzy has no friends? Why Hawaii? Why is Lizzy always having to play detective? Why didn't Tay do anything when he saw the little girl just leave, was he just in shock?

House, M.D.: September 21st.

Lie to Me: September 21st.

Jon and Kate Plus Eight: Kate's never grilled? It's not hard. She was pretty emotional. Jon and the kids had a good time fishing, and I was surprised to see he's living in New York City now! That's really all I have to say about that episode...

Table for 12: who knows?

The Secret Life of the American Teenager: off-season.

Cake Boss: off.

18 Kids and Counting: the previews really made me intrigued. And a lot kinda happened... the Wilson family came and helped them lay the concrete for a basketball court and a sidewalk, and they showed flashbacks of learning to build the house with them. The little boys tried to entertain themselves inside while the concrete dried. Jana was watching the little girls (no idea where the other big girls were during this time). Then Jim Bob decided to create a huuuuge slip-n-slide (which John-David confirmed was the "redneck" way of doing it) witha large pool at the bottom. The girls explained the "new" "modest swimsuits" (they are different from the ones they wore previously... I still like Anna's the best). Then, Jim Bob and Michelle told the kids that #19 is on the way. The expressions on most of the kids' faces were strange, and not at all as exciting as the ones last time (but that was on live tv, so I guess that's different, LoL). And I loved how Joy Anna managed to call Josh & Anna and fill them in before Michelle had a chance, haha. But overall, the episode was kinda plain. Anna should be "due" soon, how about we see more of the preparations at their house??

Still missing "Duggars in Dixie" and "Duggars and Bates Reloaded"

South Park: October 7th.

Glee: I don't like those d@mn cheerleaders corrupting Rachel. grrr. no-thumb guy better not last, I don't like him. And I don't like the way Rachel bluffs. Mercedes' lines suck. What car does Dakota drive? Why the hell do two of the HS boys since for the adult group instead of the HS group? I mean, I understand their reasons, but it shouldn't be allowed - it's just dumb. And, seriously, why is the adult group necessary? They're already giving Will enough stage time with his family and the Emma issues... plus he WAS the glee leader until he just... stopped going? Annoying. It seems like they just wanted another type of musical number, and it's not working for them. Why the HELL was a "gayvention" necessary? Whether or not Mercedes has a grip on the truth, why would Rachel and the other girl need to step in? And why in the world was it necessary for Mercedes to bust the windows? I seriously am ready to stop watching this show if they don't change her character. I can't handle her disrespect. And her lines just got worse when she talked to Kurt after he came out.

Wipeout: season finale! it was a DISGUSTING course!! Ketchup, mustard, and chocolate sauce are gross things to slip/slide/fall in. The first guy was ridiculous with the motivator and the "onion rings." I couldn't believe #2 also got the motivator! and a third one before the first commercial break! The girl who "makes ugly faces" was also not impressive. "these are ugly" and "this is like summer camp from hell" were funny quotes. all of a sudden, a FOURTH motivator gets used!!!!! the fifth one was weird, I missed why the girl had been disqualified already... That cheese sweeper looked haaaaard!! and faaaaast! Four of twelve done in one shot! HIGH!!!! oh geez. Cereal is another rough thing to have to swim into. "Billy Goat Gruff" had a horrible poem. no girls in the Wipeout Zone = :( Gears are so much harder when they have the teeth. Guy #1 just sucked on that course! I wish he had gone later, so they would have stopped him much sooner! 15:50 is ridiculous. Guy #2 beat him with a 15:16. Guy #3 was the worst on the scary-go-round that I've EVER SEEN. Just bad. #4 (who is 54 years old) annoyed me. He should have taken the penalty on the gears after one try. Then all you had to do was hold on during the drop bridge! It took him three times, but luckily he made it with less than a minute to spare!! geez.

16 and Pregnant
: off-season.
