|well, looks like i'll be downloading some new stuff on isohunt...
it's a relatively new show on etc, started mid-2006 on tbs.
about a tomboyish female sportswriter in her late 20's with a set of sports fanatic male friends. the show focuses on the usual... life, love and dating then throw in a little sports analogies here and there.
my take on it...
i didn't get the sports talk at first (well, i still don't get the sports talk) but after watching a couple of hilarious scenes with jim gaffigan (and after noticing how hot reid scott was) i got hooked.
the show is funny, smart and while it's not totally laugh-out-loud funny, it has it's moments, like the "douche-bag intervention" (one of my favorite episodes so far). and i can totally relate to the female lead with regards to interests (not sports though) and her level of maturity at her age, which is from about zero to none.
but despite the show being an in-between season replacement for the cool shows and its underratedness (is this even a word) it had its share of well-knows guest stars. so far ryan reynolds, jeremy sisto, johnny galecki and even scrubs regulars neil flynn (the janitor) and travis schuldt (keith) as well as 30 rock's "kenneth" stopped by.
right now the show just ended it's 1st season with a cliffhanger that is killing me and no news about when the 2nd season will start due to the writers strike.
fondly dubbed "GG" by it's fans (for me though Gilmore Girls was and always will be the only GG).
i'm not exactly proud to admit that i actually like watching this show. but while a lot of people are tuning in coz of the love lives of the young 'uns i tune in to find out what happens among the adults in the show. i really want 'rufus' and 'lily' to get back together, which of course would mean doom to their kids who are currently a couple. man i'm old!
the show is like "mean girls" meets "cruel intentions" meets "the o.c."
the songs they feature aren't that bad either, so far they've gone through jt, fergie, timbaland and aqualung songs.
if you're bored and looking for new shows to watch i recommend that you tune in to these two on etc.
