Bits and Pieces

I've had a bunch of ideas for blog posts floating around in my head lately, but none of them really seemed substantial enough for a full-on post of their own. So we're going to do this bullet point style. What do you want from me? It's Friday.

--Beavis and Butthead return to MTV. Yeah, you read that right. It's been 14 years, but Mike Judge is bringing back B&B to our television starting next Thursday night, October 27th, over on MTV. And I couldn't be more excited. Beavis and Butthead was my first introduction (at the age of around 13) to adult humor in cartoons and metal music. Sad but true. So break out the TP and get ready for the boys to tackle Jersey Shore. If Daria makes an appearance it will be just about perfect.

--With all the new shows I'm watching this season, I'm afraid I've had to let some go from the DVR season pass. With the number of shows available for viewing on the internet and On Demand, there's just no keeping up with everything. But that's what winter hiatus was made for, amiright? This year's DVR casualties:


Gossip Girl

The Office

30 Rock

See you guys in December!

--There's been a lot of coverage of American Horror Story on the blog lately and look for more, because our brand new permanent blogger Clovis (aka Jayowolf) will be recapping the episodes in all their freaky, creepy, wackadoo glory. I couldn't be more happy since this show has turned out to be one of the biggest surprises of the season for me. I say surprise because I can't believe how much it's sucked me in to the craziness. For example: WHO IS THE GIMP? And damn, Jessica Lange is scary and awesome.

--Finally, if you like your tv cop mysteries smart, sexy, and British, check out Masterpiece Mystery this Sunday evening. They're showing the second of three Case Histories starring Jason Issacs (another of my secret boyfriends) as Jackson Brodie. He's an ex-cop now PI who solves the mysteries the police can't, but is still traumatized from the unsolved murder of his own sister when they were children. He puts on a gruff exterior but tends to get way too emotionally involved in cases for his own good. Once again the Brits school us on drama, and it's definitely worth checking out.

Happy weekend!

PSYCHED that Clovis (hah!) is recapping American Horror Story. I had to bail after the first ep but have been obsessing over other people's recaps. That show is BEYOND.
