Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Wednesday, April 22, 2009

April 22, 2009 by  

Back in Boston! My flight landed around 5:30am and I’m already back at the office. (I hope the bosses don’t mind me taking a few minutes to post tonight’s TV spotlight.)

L.A. was amazing! I had a fantastic time catching up with friends during the Paley Festival. But 8 days without TV and the internet left me feeling all kinds of anxious. Please be patient with me as I play catch up. I’ve got lots of pics from Paley to share as well as a few anecdotes. And for you GREEK fans I can’t wait to share updates from my time spent on the set with Rebecca Logan and CAPPIE!!

But one thing at a time. How about we start off with a few highlights from tonight’s TV lineup.

(Glad to be back. I missed you guys!)

    i’ve been watching the unusuals. i’m really liking it. There’s one story line that i could do without but all of the rest is very interesting and engaging and fun. I like it.

    I like the Unusuals too. I like how the characters are a little quirky. Makes for an interesting show 🙂

    Looking forward to “Better off Ted!” That show cracks me up!

    I’m actually really enjoying the Unusuals. While it seemed like the quirks were the characters in the first episode, now the characters are quirky which is a lot of fun. The combination of Better Off Ted and The Unusuals is making me look forward to wednesdays on ABC again (which as a non-lostie I haven’t been able to say in a while) .

    The Unusuals is alright. Its no Eli Stone, but its ok.

    I’ve really been enjoying the Unusuals and I hope it gets picked up. I also lovee Better Off Ted!! I’ll also be watching Scrubs and Lie to Me!

    Last night I quit the Unusuals mid-episode and cancelled future recordings.

    It seems almost all quirk. I couldn’t relate to any of the characters except to Amber’s character and her partner. I know they are the center of the show, but everyone else pulls me out of the show. Amber and partner seem to be in one show and everyone else is in a different show.

    Grant, I’ll take any Eli Stone shout out I can get! Can’t wait for the final episodes!

    Not watching anything….at work (boo) DVR is set for Criminal Minds. Hopefully Scrubs is online. I’ve seen some of them since the move to ABC. It’s different, but I’ve always been a fan.

    Scrubs & Better Off Ted are my Wednesday Ha ha Shows, and then I get creeped out by Criminal Minds. I LOVE me some Better Off Ted, and last night’s episode was hi-larious!
