The New Stuff

Here’s my thoughts on the new TV shows that have been debuting.

Dirty Sexy Money – Trashy fun. Peter Krause is a good guy lawyer who ends up working for the twisted family his father before him worked for. Billy Baldwin having an affair with a transvestite was an interesting twist.

Ugly Betty – Just fabulous! As, again, Amanda steals the show on the premier.

CSI – Not bad. This episode specifically centered around the search for Sarah who the Miniature Killer left her under a car in the desert.

Chuck – This was a big surprise. I didn’t go in with much expectations but I really liked it. Great humor and action in it. A Nerd Heard employee (a take off of the Geek Squad) gets involved with government spies after his former roommate emails him sensitive info.

Desperate Housewives – I think the show is getting a little “same old, same old” syndrome.

The Simpsons – Still as great as ever, though they have moved into the Futurama level…that is, they used computer animation in certain scenes. Specifically when the private jet was landing and taking off. Instead of a flat picture of it moving in one direction, instead, the camera angle moves as the plane goes by. It’s hard to explain but when you see it, you’ll know it. Is that so bad? I don’t think so. The best part of the new episode is the opening sequence was a direct reference to the Simpson’s Movie (IE – Town in ruins and the giant glass dome).

Coming up soon: Dexter, Pushing Daisies, and maybe a few more.

Yesterday the Hubby had an afternoon tour. So we did some house cleaning and yard work in the morning. There was a strong breeze that helped disperse the heat of the day. He left for his tour and I met up with our friend, M., who wanted to see the Ugly Betty premier. And since the hubby hadn’t seen it, either, we decided to invite her over for dinner and some gay-friendly television.

Well, M. is not working at this time as she prepares to sell her condo and move up north, so I told her we could go into the Magic Kingdom to see the Haunted Mansion improvements.

The funny part is I walked right past the hubby and his tour and didn’t even see him as we entered Main Street. We road the Mansion. Then off to Pirates since she hadn’t seen that with it’s Captain Jack additions. We then decided to do Splash Mountain because she had never been on that. I told her you don’t get too wet.

Wrong!

And it wasn’t the big drop that got us so wet. It was right at the start where you float past the brier patch and you see the riders going down the big drop and the water splashes out of the thicket making it look like they went underwater. Well, we were at the perfect spot to get really wet by the water effect. Oh, well. It was out final ride and M. had clothes she could change into in her car.

But it was a lot of fun taking her on the attractions, pointing out the new stuff, and telling her facts about them (having worked there for 10 years I’ve gathered, and experienced, a lot of info – also got it on inside an attraction once with another cast member – Shhhhhhhhhhh!)
