Dancing with the Stars continues its impressive season tonight with some new dances sure to challenge.
Good Monday to you all! Did you have a busy weekend? I went down to San Pedro Harbor in California to see the ship model used to film the original Poseidon Adventure. So huge and so cool. This thing takes up half the room. It gave me chills just to see it sitting there knowing that it was such a huge part of movie history. Yes, I’m a geek. I admit it and happily!
I also spent my weekend clearing out the DVR. First it was Friday’s Sarah Connor Chronicles and I both loved and hated this episode. Loved the interaction with John and little Savannah and John Henry’s part in the whole thing but hated that they killed off my favorite character, Derek. Guess that answers the question about Brian Austin Green getting cast on another TV series in the fall, though I have my doubts that we’ll be seeing another season of Sarah Connor. The big finale is this Friday.I gave Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse another try because my husband loves it but I’m still bored. The episode dealt with Echo and her little band realize they’re dolls and try to escape the dollhouse but it’s all a ploy by the woman behind the madness — something about allowing them to complete unfinished business? I’d like this show better if they were real dolls in a real dollhouse, now that would be creepy.My cable favorite Running in Heels was on this weekend and it was an embarrassment of riches — in that I was totally embarrassed for the girls. Ashley horned in on Samantha’s idea for blogging the Kenneth Cole book event and then Talita broke all the rules by going straight to Rihanna’s publicist to ask for an interview for the magazine. Poor thing, she was so dressed down by the magazine editor and believe me, I’ve been where she was and it makes you want to dive off a building.Let’s turn our minds toward happier thoughts, shall we, like a new episode of Dancing with the Stars. . .
