Summer Top 5

Did you know yesterday was 8-9-10?! That is awesome!! Turns out it was also a great day to cut my hair off! Will post a pic as soon as I can talk someone into taking one. :)

Anyway I just had to take a second for my SUMMER 2010 TOP 5....or in other words, 5 reasons that I'm glad it's summer (pretty much the only 5 reasons!).....


#5: So You Think You Can Dance!!!

I haven't cared for many of the contestants this year....who cares about them when so many of my favorites are back!!! Seriously I love the all stars!!

#4: Rescue Me

I actually gave this show up...but it turns out alcohol is not the only thing that can be an addiction. :)

#3: Drop Dead Diva

Oh my goodness I love this show sooooooo much!!!! A few weeks ago it was hands down my favorite....but that was before I rediscovered #2 and discovered #1....

#2: Mad Men

The picture pretty much says it all....my good heavens this show is so unvelievable!!!
Seriously this might be the best show of all time. OK it won't ever beat out ALIAS but every week it leaves me thinking "How is it possible to make a show this good??" At the end of season 3 I thought they should get out while the gettin' was good--I usually hate it when shows reinvent themselves. But HOLY COW I cannot believe how it is head and shoulders better than itself. AMAZING!

I struggled over putting this one at #1 or #2. In the end I gave it the #2 spot because after watching an episode of Covert Affairs, I feel happy. And at the end of a Mad Men epi I find myself wanting to jump off a buliding. haha


#1: Covert Affairs

I was a SERIOUS skeptic because I didn't want a show replacing my beloved ALIAS. But I am happy to report that my ALIAS void has really been filled!!!
Last week's epi was sooooo good I've watched it 3 times!!! Trust me and check it out....what the hell else do you have to do at 11pm on a Tuesday night? Even you summer lovers can't be out in the sun at that time of day! :)

I watched Covert Affairs on hulu last night because of you talking about it...and you're right...it totally fills the alias void! I love it. Can't wait to watch eps 3 and 4. K. Back to work. :)

I have *got* to review my cable deal and get HBO! It seems like I am missing on all of the good shows... We did get SYTYCD on CTV and I loved the All-Star concept this year! The dancing was so much better because of it. The dancing was top-notch right from the first week. I'm now getting a double dose of SYTYCD because the Canadian version just started right after the American one stopped airing. I'm afraid it might turn into dance overdose, even though it is my favorite summer show...

Oh it's so nice to meet another Alias fan! I miss that show so much and was excited to watch Covert Affairs when it premiered here in Australia two weeks ago. And I wasn't disappointed ... definitely adding this to my regular viewing, love it!

:( I didn't know that SYTYCD had an all-star cast this year! I should start watching TV again. . .

We totally didn't watch the same shows this summer. I watched SYTYCD and loved the all stars but that was it. My obsessions for summer have been Big Brother, Top Chef and The Closer. In August, I added in Flipping Out and Rachel Zoe Project and I am in LOVE with that one...she cracks me up and I want both you & Vanessa to watch it so we can all talk like her together. Oh but you don't have Bravo, do you???

Did you really cut your hair off? I loved your hair! (says she, queen of the short 'do'!) Show us a picture, Shannon! So nice to read your blog; it was great to meet you in Sydney. Big hugs, beautiful girl. Bron xx
