Happy Birthday America! You may be 242 but you don’t look a day over 200!
Wednesday is a really dumb day for the Fourth of July. I don’t recall networks ever deciding to just run reruns for an entire week. WTF?
What are your plans for the day? Mine involved waking up to watch a bit of the Peachtree Road Race and then going back to sleep. I used to make hot dogs on a George Foreman grill but a few years back the grill started to smoke a bit and I decided it needed to go. This year, I might go through the Checkers drive thru for a chili dog and buy some beer. Or I might go buy some bread and make a BLT out of my giant orange tomato. Or I might take another nap. Or watch some Big Brother live feeds.
My greatest hope of the day is that a kid shows up to cut my grass. I haven’t seen hair nor hide of one in three weeks!
I do have some binge watching suggestions during these difficult times. There is new show on OWN called Love Is _____? The title is stupid but the show is great. We are about three episodes in. Also on OWN is Queen Sugar. We are a couple of episodes into that. It is also good.
AMC has a new show called Dietland. It’s quirky and the lead character is an overweight woman working in the beauty industry who is contemplating weight loss surgery. Along the way she in up investigating a group of serial killers who are sort of feminist revolutionaries. Or something. After the first episode, you are not sure what is going on but people keep getting killed. The more you watch the less weird it seems and the more you figure stuff out.
FX has Pose. It’s really good but kind of depressing and heartbreaking. The Lady C is recapping Pose this season so she can catch you up with that!
Also on my play list this week is The Affair on Showtime. It’s a great show and the newest season just started after an excruciatingly long hiatus. There are essentially four main people on the show. Each episode focuses on two people who have had interaction over a period of time. The first half of the hour is how one person saw what occurred and the second half is how the other person recalls the events. It’s really interesting.
This week would be a good time for y’all to remember what good shows were like before our brains got rotten with Bravo crap.
So ? What are you plans today? I think I am going with hot dogs and curly fries today.
