What to Watch…Tuesday, December 11, 2007

December 11, 2007 by  

What to watch…what to watch? None of my regulars shows are on tonight, so maybe I should check out something new. Anyone out there watching BOSTON LEGAL? I loathe William Shatner and I haven’t enjoyed James Spader since Pretty in Pink (ok, well maybe Mannequin) but I hear the show is pretty funny. Then again it’s my Dad that thinks it’s funny and his comedic choices have been questionable in the past (no offense Daddy). Let me know if you watch it and think it’s worth me checking out.

There’s a lot to choose from so here’s a sample of what’s on the ‘ol tube tonight. What will you be watching.

For the kids (or kids in all of us)…

Shrek the Halls | 8pm on ABC
ShrekShrek, Fiona and the kids try to celebrate the holidays as a family, but visits by Donkey, Puss in Boots, Gingerbread Man and others turn a cozy gathering into a chaotic Christmas. Voices include Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas.

    I understand your Dad situation. Mine LOVES Two and a Half Men and thinks Charlie Sheen is a great actor. I almost had to disown him. I told him he lost all of the cool points he earned by watching The Office. 🙂

    Tuesday nights have been quiet on the TV front for me all seasonlong. I’ll probably just catch the TBS reruns of The Office tonight.

    I think Boston Legal is okay from what I’ve seen of it but I’ve never understood all the award nominations and wins it’s received over the years. It’s never been a show I’ve felt the need to watch either.

    I have a feeling tonight will be a night of no tv….
    *le sigh* I guess studying for finals is a good substitute

    I’m a big fan of Boston Legal and anything with David E. Kelley’s name attached. It’s definitely worth watching to see if you like it. There’s a lot of humor, but it’s not to be taken seriously. It gets predictable with the lawyers winning pretty much every case, but the characters on the show are characters you won’t find anywhere else. And you’ll love James in this show – he has the biggest heart and the best one-liners.

    I’m constantly astounded that more people aren’t fans of Boston Legal. It can be over the top at times. But it also has some of the most compelling and thoughtful dialogue of anything on TV. And its often very funny and very moving at the same time.

    I know the Emmy’s get it wrong a lot. But there is a good reason both Spader and Shatner have won. They are both so awesome. Challenge yourself a little and I think you’ll find it worthwhile.

    I think last seasons Christmas episode of “Bones” is on tonight so I think I rewatch that 🙂 It was one of my favorites!

    I usually enjoy Boston Legal (though I’m not so sure about the Emmy wins). However, I think it appeals to a very specific sense of humor, and to enjoy it one must have that sense of humor as well as a high tolerance for preachiness (which I don’t mind, since it’s usually of the progressive sort). And to be honest, it helps if you find the Shat hilarious. Though Candice Bergen is fantastic enough to make up for most Shat hatred.

    I know most people who get on this website are reality-show haters but I have to say that I’ve really enjoyed The Biggest Loser this season. I’m a fan of any show that inspires people to get healthy and lose weight. Plus Jillian the trainer cracks me up.

    I don’t think GMMR readers are reality show haters as much as they just don’t watch as many of them. We have readers who are really into The Amazing Race, SYTYCD, American Idol and many more reality shows that I just don’t happen to talk about here. I used to enjoy The Biggest Loser but I don’t talk about it on the site because I don’t have time to watch it. And if I don’t watch it I can’t really talk about it with much authority. 🙂

    I know some readers are “Wicked” fans and I was just writing to let you all know that the current LA Glinda, Miss Megan Hilty will be on Deal or No Deal tonight in case any of you want to watch.
