What to Watch…Tuesday, May 27, 2008

May 27, 2008 by  

Well hello there. It’s been awhile. I hope all of my crazy American readers enjoyed the holiday weekend. If you’re on the East Coast like me I trust you had some great weather, just perfect for the unofficial kickoff to summer. For those of you not in the old U.S. of A., then sorry for the lack of updates yesterday. It was just too nice of a day to be writing about or even thinking about TV.
Happy Birthday, Lila So let’s get back into it. What’s on tonight? Not much. Lots and lots of reality shows. As happy as I am that IDOL is done and over with, I realized it was one of the few shows I actually watched on Tuesdays and Wednesday. Guess that leaves plenty of time to try to do some damage on my summer TV catchup. Namely, Project: SUPERNATURAL. (Those Winchester boys are hot and funny…a nice combo.)

Before we get into a few TV suggestions for the night, I need to wish my niece Lila a very happy 4th birthday today. So bummed I can’t be there to celebrate in person. How time flies.

Project Supernatural

First aired: 11/8/2005
Dean and Sam arrive in a town checking up a report of a mysterious death, and stop at a realtor’s open house barbecue. Sam meets the realtor’s son Matt, who is fascinated with bugs. Soon the town is invaded by swarms of deadly bugs, and there may be no way out. [I can’t tell you how much I’m not looking forward to this episode. I have this irrational fear of bugs and I know this episode is going to freak me out. Ugh.]

First aired: 11/15/2005
When Sam has nightmares of their old home, the brothers return to Lawrence, Kansas to investigate. They discover that a new family has moved into the Winchester’s home, and the woman is the one that Sam has been dreaming about. The family has been hearing and seeing frightening things, and the brothers think it might be haunted by the thing that killed their mother. They enlist the help of their father’s psychic to rid the house of the angry poltergeist. [The only thing that freaks me out more than bugs is anything having to do with ghosts. It’s the reason I didn’t watch this show in the first place. Blood and guts I can deal with, but ghosts…this is going to be a rough day.]

“Asylum ”
First aired: 11/22/2005
When Sam and Dean investigate a mysterious asylum that has a history with abuse, an evil force inside causes Sam to lose his sanity and turn on his brother.

    How interesting that I watched all the episodes of Supernatural you mentioned just last night! I am not a huge fan of “Bugs” but there are a few good moments that make it worth watching. It’s probably my least favorite episode of the whole 3 seasons. “Home” is wonderfully angsty and “Asylum” is just downright scary. Keep watching! I can’t wait to hear what you think!

    The “special” effects on Bugs were very poor and the story was not the best.

    Home was excellent.

    Is that Karen’s daughter?! She’s beautiful!

    Yeah, Dawn. That’s her youngest. Adorable, right?

    “Home” is one of the better season 1 episodes and one of the few to genuinely scare me. Mostly, I find SPN to be creepy, not scary, but there are scenes in that episode that I find hard to watch.
