Almost Back to our Regulary Scheduled Programming

November 26, 2006 by  

I don’t know about you, but the holidays have thrown everything just a bit off for me over the past few days. Hey, I’m not complaining about a four day weekend, but I have felt a little out of sorts as of late. Perhaps it’s all the time with the family and away from my TV (again, not saying that’s a bad thing). There is a little part of me that is looking forward to getting back to my routine tomorrow. Blog, work, dinner, watch TV, blog, sleep….ugh, forget about it, maybe that’s NOT worthwhile to get back to. Anyway, I’ve missed all of you and I’m looking forward to catching up. Here’s a little glimpse of the week ahead on Give Me My Remote.

The Newbies...

Yes, I have sacrificed a good portion of my Sunday afternoon for YOU. How may you ask? Well I’ll tell you. I had a whole bin of unwatched screeners just taking up space in my living room. With all my existing appointment TV, it’s hard to make time for the screeners. But I have finally made the time and this week you’ll get my two cents on a few of the new midseason replacement shows coming your way – one of which I really liked a lot. As an avid TV viewer you want reviews to come in right before the show airs…not months in advance, right? I know I want to be able to make that game time decision to throw a newbie on to my TiVo or not. So later this week expect the inside scoop on TBS’s two new comedies: My Boys and 10 Items of Less, as well as SciFi’s new miniseries The Lost Room starring Peter Krause (Six Feet Under) and Juliana Margulies (ER).
My Picks of the Week…


Prison Break – Tomorrow night is the Fall Finale of the show, so be prepared to expect BIG things, as well as a cliffhanger to tide us over until the show returns in late January.

How I Met Your Mother – Wayne Brady (Whose Line is it Anyway?) guest stars as Swarley’s Barney’s gay, black brother. Yeah, this one is going to be good.


Veronica Mars – The Hearst rapist is revealed and someone goes the way of Lily Kane, Beaver, Harry Hamlin and Guttenberg by the time all is said and done. Rumor has it this is a BIG episode for LoVers (uh oh, not good). Never a dull moment for Roni.


Day Break – Ok, maybe it’s not filling the void of Lost, but it is an hour filled with Taye Diggs, and THAT my friends ain’t ever a bad thing. So what’s going to happen? Well, Taye wakes up at 6:18am and relives his day all over again (oh damn, should I have marked that one with a SPOILER ALERT?)


The Office – I’m just counting the hours until the cold open. This week Michael is going to find out one of this employee’s has a criminal past and then act all Michael-like and embarrass himself, Dunder Mifflin and mankind in general.

Must See TV! is back this week with an all new Thursday night comedy lineup on NBC. More on this later, but get prepared to laugh your asses of again on Thursday nights; My Name is Earl (8pm), The Office (8:30pm), Scrubs (9pm) and 30 Rock (9:30pm). Note to self – NEVER leave the house on a Thursday night again


Battlestar Galactica – Conflict still remains between the former settlers of New Caprica and those who remained with the fleet during the Cylon occupation. Admiral Adama organizes a boxing match to work out some aggression, and in the case of Apollo and Starbuck, some SERIOUS sexual tension.

    Too much turkey. Too little Office. Yep, it’s been an off week … 🙂 Jennie

    Did you get a screener copy of The Office for this week, Kath? I think you did a nice job last episode generating interest (as if we weren’t interested… :o)) yet not giving away too much…

    It was really really hard–that’s what she said–getting through this week w/o The Office. I am about to pee myself in anticipation for this Thursday’s episode! So excited!

    I don’t think i have left the house on a Thursday night when the Office was on (re-run or a new one) Since March of last year…. I guess i need a life, But then who would watch my Tv? 😉
