If you are like me, and addicted to TV while trying to wean yourself from Bravo you might be eyeballing some other options with the rollout of the new fall season. I’ve been cheating on Bravo like a trophy wife whose elderly husband is being held hostage in Somalia. So I thought I would give you a brief overview of just who I have been laying around with.
Michael J. Fox (The Michael J. Fox Show)
I grew up with Alex P. Keaton and I was excited to see MJF coming back to my small screen, Parkinson’s and all. If enough time passes since the break up, you start to forget the bad stuff about the relationship and think maybe the relationship deserves another chance. We’re older and more mature now, right? Well, I gave it the good ole college try, and I’m sad to report the spark wasn’t there. Plus, he expectedly lasts for just half the time now and I am just not sure what to do with the other half hour. It’s not working for me. Plus the name of the show is stupid.
Robin Williams (The Crazy Ones)
Speaking of only lasting for half an hour, I had to miss spending some time with Robin Williams to hang out with MJF. Despite the much higher ratings for The Crazy Ones, those who chose Robin for their Thursday night guy seem to have left a bit dissatisfied as well. I may give him a shot this Thursday. I heard that Brad Garrett is on this show, and I find him incredibly sexy. Yes, I do know that is weird. Which is why a show called The Crazy Ones, will probably be right up my alley. we’ll see.
Stuart Townsend (Betrayal)
Betrayal premiered on Sunday and I was stuck with Bravo at the time so last night after all of you guys went to bed, I stayed up and got to know a new guy named Stuart. The problem with Stuart is that he looks pretty much every other guy on TV. I have this same issue when I watch Nashville. He’s an interchangeable good looking brown-haired guy who is having an affair with a woman who is married to another good looking brown-haired guy. The chick that Stuart’s character, Jack, is screwing is the star of the show. She is now in a BAD situation. She is married to a decent guy with political aspirations who is a prosecutor. He’s a good father and seems like “the good guy.” But Jack…Jack has presented himself to her as someone who , like her, has never really felt a strong connection to anyone until Jack showed up at her photography exhibit. They have undeniable chemistry. But we’re not really sure yet if Jack is a hero or a villain. He is a defense attorney. Her husband and her lover will be opposing attorneys on a murder trial. Juicy, no? I plan to spend a lot more time with Stuart, albeit it, perhaps not on Sunday night.
Gabriel Mann ( Revenge)
After spending time with Stuart last night, I totally wanted some time with my gay best friend Nolan Ross. I tried to watch the new episode of Revenge but very quickly stopped the recording because I needed to see the finale again for anything to make sense. So I watched the two-hour finale and will probably go hang with Nolan as soon as I get a chance today. Nolan is perfect in every way. I hope he doesn’t die this season! No spoilers please!
James Spader ( The Blacklist)
James and I have a long standing love affair. The Practice and Boston Legal were must see TV for me. The there was the movie, The Secretary. Oh, yes please. But now he has gone all Silence of Lambsish on me. I do not care for scary stuff. But never fear, The Blacklist is not scary, but it is a thriller. I missed the first episode and was able to pick right up on episode two. It’s sort of like any legal type show in that while there are season long story arcs, each episode can stand alone as well. James plays “Red” a terribly bad man who comes to the FBI and offers to help them catch all the other bad guys for immunity. So far, they are still working out the details of that. Red makes no effort to hide his dastardly ways and this show is delicious. Because RHOM has moved to 10pm on Monday, I will end up watching him in the dark of night. Which seems deliciously appropriate. I don’t mind sharing if you want to check him out.
Who have you been cheating on Bravo with? Come on, I know you are doing it. Spill the tea.
