Mondays With M

Welcome back to Mondays with M! Lots to talk about for the upcoming week...

Last Week's Leftovers

We have entered the first sweeps session for 2007! Since I just started blogging again late last week, there's not much left to talk about. The weekend was pretty much taken over by Superbowl events... the game itself was okay, the best commericial for me was a three-way tie between K-Fed's self-mocking, the dalmation-wannabe and the first Bud commercial with the rock, paper, scissors (I can't help it, I'm a sucker for throwing things at people!) Also tuned in for the beginning and end of the My Boys marathon on TBS - it really can't be said enough: what a terrific show. I love the last scene of the season finale - although, I have a feeling that the PJ/Brando relationship will be similar to the ups and downs of Ross & Rachel. The only downer for the night is that we didn't get a fresh Battlestar, meaning it will be two weeks to see the repercussions of the discovery of Kara's prophetic apartment art.

M's Weekly Spotlights

Monday: Heroes (NBC, 9pm) because we get to see Hiro interact with his Dad and Claire interact with her "real" mom. (Honorable Mention: Studio 60, NBC, 10pm, because the three-parter Harriet Dinner finally wraps up!)

Tuesday: Veronica Mars (CW, 9pm) because we get to see LoVe break-up AGAIN, this time for valid reasons (vile Madison!)

Wednesday: Lost (ABC, 10pm - note the new time!) because we finally start the real season, beginning with an amazing Juliet-centric episode! If you need a catch-up, don't forget to tune in an hour early at 9pm for a refresher on what's happened so far!

Thursday: OC (Fox, 9pm) because there are only three episodes left, and this may be the best season ever on the OC (getting rid of Marissa may have been the best decision ever!)... and also, we finally get to witness an earthquake in California! (Honorable Mention: Ugly Betty, ABC, 8pm, for the Alex(is)/Daniel relationship alone!)

Friday: Psych (USA, 10pm) because Shawn and Gus make a mystery/crime show bearable again (down with CSI!)

Sunday: Battlestar Galactica (Sci Fi, 10pm) because Baltar is finally put on trial for crimes against humanity - don't you want to see him fry???? (Honorable Mention: Desperate Housewives, ABC, 9pm, because Ian's wife finally dies!)


In case you're the last person on Earth to have not heard this, Ed Helms got made into a series regular on The Office, which is quite exciting - who knew Dwight couldn't be the MOST irritating person on television? Although, the interesting part is that Rashida Jones (Karen) did NOT get announced as a regular... good things in store for Jim & Pam? Maybe not... Roy is playing his A game this season, and somehow got hot over the summer!

Also, in case you're one of those five people in America that doesn't watch 24, Heroes, (or in my case both), David Spade's new comedy Rules of Engagement starts this week on CBS, Mondays at 9:30. I might have tuned in if it wasn't up against good television. Also, isn't it the same premise as 'Til Death (of which, admittedly, I have only watched one episode, after which I vomitted and stay the hell away from?) New couple is all cute 'n' cuddly, old couple is jaded and sarcastic - humor ensues? I don't think so.
