The shows we’re watching:
1. Top Chef. I’m just amazed that these contestants can come up with such great recipes in such a short time. The recipe I come up with under pressure is called Subway. My favorite contenders are Hosea and Ariane. What about you?
2. We’re looking forward to the return of Lost. Last season was great with the flash-forwards and the “disappearing” island. And, frankly, I miss Hurley.
3. I watch Biggest Loser on DVR. Which means I tape it and then fly throw it for just the good parts. I admire the people in what they are doing to turn their lives around and I like that it’s based on diet and exercise. And if you fly through it, you don’t have to watch any of the crying.
4. 24. I drive Mr MIP crazy by doing my version of Mystery Science Theater 3000 during this show (Do you miss MST3000 like I miss MST3000?). But last night’s episode was good…except for the overblown praise of the driver to Jack. Gag.
And right here, let me present the evidence as to why I don’t think Tony’s really, actually renegade, but just very very angry and probably a little ticked about DeRosa’s trade (note his mug):
Edited to add: Another show I like, but DVR so I can speed through is Food Network’s Ultimate Recipe Showdown. Anyone can enter and if you’re recipe is chosen, you have a showdown on air. The recipe that wins is put on the TGI Friday’s menu. We had last week’s winner’s recipe at Friday’s yesterday and it was good! (I feel like that was a complicated sentence!). It’s also cool that the show is posting all the recipes online at their site. Click here to link to the show’s site.
