What to Watch…Monday, July 7, 2008

July 7, 2008 by  

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a nice long weekend (well at least those of you in the good ‘ol U.S. of A.).  I had a fantastic 4th of July weekend, spent with family and friends. I can’t say I watched much TV, but that’s ok because it’s a new week, right?

And speaking of new…this is the very first GMMR post on my brand new Mac Book Pro.  Yes, I have officially made the switch from a PC to a Mac and I couldn’t be more excited.  Still getting the hang of this new machine, and I haven’t scratched the surface of what I can do, but I just got it yesterday so there’s plenty of time to play around and get acquainted with it.

I’m still without a good photo editor tool (hence why not all of the programs listed have images next to them).  I’m just excited to finally have a computer again.  And now that I do, let’s put this puppy to work.

Check out what might be worthy of your tunage tonight.

    Woo – hoo for Weeds! I’m almost sad that I have caught up to real time – we’ve been watching the DVDs and now I don’t want to have to wait a whole week to see what’s happening next!

    My favorite Monday show (until The Closer starts back up next week) is The Middleman on ABC Family. I loved Men in Black, and it is just a fun show to watch. I am interested in the shows on Showtime, but I don’t have any pay channels beyond basic cable. Other than The Middleman, I watch American Gladiators just because my 8-yr old son likes to watch it, and I use it as an opportunity to talk with him about competition, training, and not giving up.

    I’ve only seen the first 2 eps of “Secret Diary”, but I liked it! Looks like it’s going to be a really good show!

    I’ve (secretly!) been watching Secret Diary. I’m not sure what I think about it, but I’ll keep watching. Can’t wait to read your thoughts on it, Kath!

    I love The Middleman too. It is a lot of fun to watch. It is the only show I’m watching this summer, at least until Psych returns.

    I’ve actually gone through all the Secret Diary episodes and while I think it was an enjoyable (and risque) series, it was very forgettable. Then again, they are only 20 minute episodes… honestly, The main reason I kept watching was to see whether or not Billie Piper’s character would get together with her best friend.
