If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/25/13

I would be looking forward to this weekend, except I’m going to be spending all day tomorrow helping get a house ready to go on the market—painting, cleaning, and so much more. Blah. On the bright side, I have tonight’s line up of television to help me unwind and mentally prepare for the work tomorrow. Let’s see what you should be watching.

I would have to disagree. 🙂 Kitchen Nightmares amuses me to no end, and it makes me giggle with delight when Ramsay has to school people. Perhaps I may be slightly sadistic, but I enjoy watching clueless people learn lessons—it’s soothing. Regardless of why I watch, I find that every episode keeps me interested, and it should be a must-watch for you, as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Olde Hitching Post,” Chef Ramsay confronts the owner of the Olde Hitching Post in Massachusetts, who refuses to allow his daughter and co-owner of the eatery have any say.

To see how Ramsay deals with this control freak issue, tune into FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Kitchen Nightmares @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Spartacus and Four Weddings.

Interview with Steven S. DeKnight from Spartacus: Vengeance

Earlier this week, the creator, writer, and Executive Producer behind the amazing franchise of Spartacus, Steven S. DeKnight, took some time to chat with journalists. He had so many wonderful insights into the newest installment, Spartacus: Vengeance. He discussed the reason why certain characters must meet their demise, the plans for our favorite characters, and so many other fabulous insights.

Just to prepare you for the rest of the interview, here’s a brief synopsis of what this new installment is all about. Basically, it’s just purely epic.

On the heels of the bloody escape from the House of Batiatus that concluded Spartacus: Blood and Sand, the gladiator rebellion continues and begins to strike fear into the heart of the Roman Republic in Spartacus: Vengeance. Gaius Claudius Glaber and his Roman troops are sent to Capua to crush the growing band of freed slaves that Spartacus leads before it can inflict further damage. Spartacus is presented the choice of satisfying his personal need for vengeance against the man that condemned his wife to slavery and eventual death, or making the larger sacrifices necessary to keep his budding army from breaking apart. Containing all of the blood-soaked action, exotic sexuality, villainy, and heroism that has come to distinguish the series, the tale of Spartacus resumes in epic fashion.

Just reading that is exciting, isn’t it? Keep up the excitement by jumping ahead to read the interview. Continue reading

TV News – 10/4/10

What a crazy, busy day it’s been for me! How was your day? The TV season is well under way and so is the TV news, so let’s take a look.

A few posts ago I discussed the sad news that Andy Whitfield from Spartacus, would be stepping down from his role due to needing treatment for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma again. The executive producer had been deciding whether they “close up shop or recast”, they chosen to recast. While I understand that ‘the show must go on’, can it really go on with someone else in Whitfield’s role? I’m not sure, what’s your thoughts? Source

TV News – 9/27/10

It has been a busy weekend, with lots of crazy family things going on. I have to admit while I’m overjoyed to be pregnant, this exhaustion and nausea is driving me a bit bonkers. 😉 Let’s take a look at some TV news.

Darren Criss (Eastwick, A Very Potter Musical), is joining the cast of Glee in the much anticipated role of “Blaine, a cute and charismatic gay student from a rival Glee club” . This character may or may not end up being Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) boyfriend but the writers are just keeping everything under wraps and leaving their options over. I’m excited about this casting, Criss is adorable. I hope that he ends up being Kurt’s boyfriend because they’d make a cute couple. Check out his audition video after the jump.Source

More after the jump. Continue reading
