Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Friday, June 19, 2009

June 19, 2009 by  

Sorry for the late posting of the spotlight.  I dorked out this morning and went to the Apple Store at the crack of dawn to the get the iPhone 3GS.  One hour in line and I was good to go.  Not too bad considering the 6 hours I waited last year.  Such a geek at heart.

It’s Friday. It’s the summer (although you would never know it if you are living in Boston). There’s not going to be a lot of great TV on tonight.  It’s just the way it goes.  I have tickets to the Sox game, but if I opt not to go (depending on the rain), it’s going to be a SUPERNATURAL marathon for me (see below).

Here’s a few shows you might want to check out tonight..then again, you might be better off watching TV on DVD. May I suggest GREEK?

Surviving Suburbia | 8pm on ABC
“Dirty Stevie”
Onno gives Steve a gun, and while Steve enjoys the feeling of power it gives him, Anne wants it out of the house; Monica sends Anne a bill for the food Henry has been eating while at her house.

The Goode Family | 8:30pm on ABC
“A Tale of Two Lesbians”
Gerald and Helen befriend a lesbian couple to impress the arts council, but it goes for naught when Gerald makes an inadvertent antigay slur.

The Soup | 10pm on E!
“The Week in Review”
A weekly recap of various pop culture and television show moments of the week. The show is hosted by Joel McHale, who provides sarcastic and biting commentary on the various clips.

Also Playing…

  • The Chopping Block | 8pm on NBC: The remaining teams must prepare a dish using aphrodisiac ingredients; a famous sommelier tells the winning team how to pair wine with food.
  • Don’t Forget the Lyrics | 8pm on Fox: A woman from Boston competes in hopes of winning money to send her hard-working parents on vacation.

On the late night couch…

  • Chelsea Lately: Nia Vardalos, Guy Branum, Arden Myrin, Chris Hardwick (R 6/11/09)
  • Last Call with Carson Daly: Kathy Griffin, the Ting Tings

Project Supernatural
It’s my goal to be completely caught up with SUPERNATURAL by the time it returns to the air in the Fall. It’s going to be tough, but I’ll try. I have no doubt that I will love this show as much as others if I just give it a shot. But I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t freak me out a little. I’m a big baby. I love don’t like scary stuff.

Tonight’s I’ll be taking on three new episodes (unless I end up at the Red Sox game)

Route 666 | Season 1, Episode 13
Dean gets contacted by his first love, an African American woman, about racist murders that occur on a desert route, caused by a truck that seems driver-less

Nightmare | Season 1, Episode 14
Sam’s precognitive dream leads the brothers to investigate a mysterious death which seems connected to a boy with the power of telekinesis.

The Benders | Season 1, Episode 15
Dean searches for Sam when he is kidnapped by a backwoods family who likes to hunt humans and use their body parts as trophies.

    Project Supernatural – Route 666 is not scary at all. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. The other two episodes are scary but not in the way that scare YOU. I can’t tell you how excited I am that you are digging in finally to catch up!

    Me? I will be reading a book tonight. Maybe start some FNL if I finish early.

    The Benders is so good – freaky and gross but good. I agree with Patty though – it’s not scary in the way that scares you Kath, so you should be okay.

    Don’t watch Route 666! I’m a die hard fan of the show but that is absolutely the worst episode!

    See, Emily, I think Bugs is the worst. Route 666 has a couple of key reveals that should be seen. So even if it’s only a one time watch that you don’t pay a whole lot of attention to, it’s still a must see. Unlike Bugs which I can do with never watch again except for Dean in the steam shower.
