My friend, the tv

I finished watching the entire Alias series on dvd several weeks ago, so I was relieved when the new season premieres started.

What else does a girl with a deployed husband and three kids have to do at night?

Ok, so dishes, laundry, vacuuming and unpacking all come to mind, but let's be honest.

Not gonna happen once the kids are finally in bed and quiet.

So I dvr'd a new series or eight and have been working my way through them. I'd watch them on actual tv, but this whole Central Time thing really throws me off.

Plus, I really like how fast the fast forward is when the commercials are dvr'd.

Anyway, I had high hopes that Bionic Woman would fill the Alias-shaped hole in my life, but Jamie Sommers just doesn't have the rockin pink hair and fantabulous clothes the way Sidney Bristow does. She does kick some serious booty, though, so I'm not giving up yet.

So I turned to Big Shots in the hopes that a series with Michael Vartan would fulfill me. While I was glad he seemed to be the only halfway decent character, I haven't gotten around to watching the second episode yet, and don't really feel drawn to.

And then came Pushing Daisies.

It is cute, quirky, original and I loved it.

And couldn't wait to watch the second episode.

And with clothes like these, how could you resist?

And while that last one lacks appropriate, er, foundational garments, I tried in vain to find a good picture of the dress with red flowers that Chuck wore in last week's episode "Dummy" and couldn't, so the um, unsupported dress with red flowers had to do.

And Olive's rendition of "Hopelessly Devoted" had me laughing out loud.

I LOVE this show too!!! I only strarted watching it because i was intrigued and I would watch anything with Kristen Chenoweth. I have fallen in love and hope that they do NOT cancel it!

Pushing Daisies is also one of my new favorites. I smile the whole time I'm watching and it just leaves me feeling happy for some reason! I am so disappointed with the Bionic Woman---I fell asleep halfway through the second episode and still haven't gotten around to watching the third.

Check out 'Chuck' if you like fun action shows. We also like that one a lot. Cute, funny, but also has an adventure element to it. Pretty good show.

It's on ABC and while searching for pictures of Chuck's dress, I read that ABC had already picked it up!

I agree. This is fun and totally quirky and I love it! I'm glad you had fun with Joy and got some good refresh time.

Nothing can take the place of Alias. Unless of course they bring back 90210, but even then, I doubt it!
I tried to watch Big Shots too, but Michael Vartan wasn't enough to make me watch another episode. I have been watching Cane, Dirty Sexy Money, Criminal Minds, and Friday Night Lights.
And of course, lots of HGTV and TLC!
