Time out for some tee-vee


The couch potato in me absolutely adores nothing more than vegging out in front of the telly with some potato chips and a good program to watch, most preferably something that's of the reality show genre or a serial. Must see shows on my list go on, and on, and on... No wonder some survey in America said that adults routinely watch about 40 hours of television a week! *faints*

Just now I was watching the final minutes of this week's episode of season three of The O.C., that hip show about teenagers living in posh Orange County who get "all shook up" when a guy from the wrong side of town gets adopted into the family staying there. For a season I had a crush on Ryan Atwood (played by Benjamin McKenzie) because of his brooding bad boy character, but his monosyllable dialogue was a bit too sparse for my liking. Now Seth Cohen (Adam Brody) is someone I can talk to, but gosh, how to like a geek who looks like a stringbean? LOL!

I remember when I got my hands on season one, I watched an episode per night, totally hooked. The cool location, the beautiful people to watch, the funky rich parents, the pampered brats... this generation's version of Beverly Hills 90210. I liked the show so much for a while my conversation was peppered with one-liners from the show. It's so yogalates, you know? *wink* Oh, come on... don't salt my game, k? Ahahaha.

I personally think that the first season was the best... The O.C. never evoked the same kind of feel in seasons two, three and finally four (which just ended in the US). If you'll excuse me now, I'm going to look at my season one pics again.

Aiseh, I am not too keen on Series, or even Realities.. I just wanna watch good movies.. All kinds of movies, except maybe not the Horror/Gore genre. But I love potato chips!! Whee *crackle*.. *scrunch*..

L B said...

jo: Series are like mini-movies! Except it happens every week (or day, if you follow the Chinese drama serials). It depends on the type of series for me too... I don't follow stuff like 24 and Alias.

angel: It is! But I'm completely lost because I've not been able to watch it from episode one... only saw like bits and pieces here and there. So potong stim when I dunno what's happening. But Hiro is super-cute! *runs off to save the cheerleader, save the world*

l b: *comes back after failed attempt to locate the cheerleader*

No Series? No Reality TV? *eyes fill with tears, lips tremble* Nooooo.....

Movies? *cheers up* I like most movies except Horror/Gore genre too! *shakes hands*

You bring the movie, I'll bring the potato chips!

l b: *looks for the official THHC Excel record file* Hmm, looks like this month's tally has yet to be opened...

rinnah said...

chen: Think of all the time you've saved by seldom watching tv! *grin*

may said...

despite me having a TV all to myself, and all the good series being shown here, I think I'm too used to not watching the boobtube for a long period of time. movies are better, though even that, I'm not getting enough of!

rinnah said...

may: I used to have a mini 14" tv all to myself, but that one had no Astro, only an old VCR (in the days before VCDs).

I only watch movies when I visit Uncle Ho! *giggle*

I never watched that particular series. I do enjoy some reality shows and I like a lot of the sci-fi and horror stuff on TV nowadays.

rinnah said...

simple american: I know... you watch The Amazing Race All Stars! I am sad that Romber is no longer in the game. TARAS will be less interesting for me from now on.
