Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Saturday, May 23, 2009

May 23, 2009 by  

The first full day of a long weekend. Excuse me while I become a Woo girl for a moment…WOOO!! No. Work. Till. Tuesday!!

I’m heading out this afternoon to go to the Cape for the night with some friends, and tomorrow I have a few BBQs to attend. I know GMMR can be light on the weekends but unless there is breaking TV news (and I can’t imagine there will be), I’ll be signing off for the weekend. I’m leaving the laptop at home friends!

There’s plenty on TV to keep you interested.  If for some reason you are home today, or have an empty DVR just waiting to be filled, you should definitely check out the BAND OF BROTHERS marathon on The History Channel. If you’ve never seen this mini-series you will be floored by how epic and moving it is.  Brilliant storytelling and fantastic acting from a cast filled with familiar faces…including more than a few from our favorite TV shows.  If you’ve never seen it, you should definitely watch.

And the of course there’s always Mrs. Doubtfire.  So there.  Something for everyone.
