A Thursday of NBC

What I’ve watched since I last posted:

I don’t know what you guys watched last night but from 8 to 10 my T.V. was tuned to NBC for two episodes of The Office, the premiere of Parks and Recreation, and some 30 Rock.

Let’s start with Parks.  The creators of The Office launched their new show last night which follows the life of Leslie Knope.   Knope is a free spirited, hopeful girl and has complete faith in the American system and Amy Poehler did a great job introducing her character in the first episode.  I imagine season 1 will revolve around the ditch that Knope has been given to turn into a park.  In any this show was pretty damn funny.

As for the two new episodes of The Office, all I have to say is Ryan is back.  Ryan is one of the most unfavored characters on the show, but he has always been one of my favorites.  I read a couple of weeks ago that Ryan would be return “In a brand new way and as a changed man.”  This of course peaked my curiosity, and man was that comment spot on.  Now blond, Ryan has been working at a bowling ally since his return from Tialand (if he even went).  That is until he is recruited by Michael.  Furthermore, with the Michael Scott Paper Company in the same office as Dunder Mifflin I can’t wait to see him run into Kelly.  He’ll for sure try to get back with her.

I really can’t wait to see where the show is going.  Obviously Charles isn’t gonna last for too long.  I imagine Michael’s business will do something good but, one way or another, he and his staff will end up back at Dunder Mifflin.

If you’ve never seen an episode of 30 Rock it’s time to start catching up.  b This is by far this is the funniest show on T.V.  The humor is point blank and every cast member is essential.  This week the gang celebrated their 50th episode of T.G.S. (The show that 30 Rock focuses on).  However, things didn’t go as smoothly as everyone thought they would.  Still, everything worked out by the end.  If you’ve never seen 30 Rock you need to go buy it now.

Just a final note, I haven’t been able to watch Lost yet, but I am watching it today so stay tuned on Sunday cause that is for sure what I’ll be talking about.


Did you see that?

Lets start with last nights all new Heroes episode, “Into Asylum.”  With all that has been going on for the super powered fugitives you would think things couldn’t get any worse.  Guess again.  With an alliance forged between the Hunter (Zeljko Ivanek) and Sylar (Zachary Quinto) the heroes are bound to have their hands full.  In any case you can probably rest assured Sylar has his own agenda.  Meanwhile Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) and Angela (Christine Rose) search for answers from higher places as Claire (Hayden Panettiere)  takes control of her and Nathan’s (Adrian Pasdar) situation in Mexico.

On The Office in “Two Weeks,” Michael (Steve Carrell) and the rest of the gang are learning to deal with Dunder Mifflin’s new Vice President, Charles (Idris Elba).  Elba does a great job portraying his character, the new guy from corporate with every intention of changing all the rules.  Really though, how long can this guy hold up.  Especially when he doesn’t even get along with Jim (John Krasinski).

Today was not a good day for Jessie

Today was not a good day for Jesse

This Week on Breaking Bad Jesse (Aaron Paul) struggles with his life falling apart on all fronts.  This is one of the reasons I love this show so much.  These characters are not on unimaginable, they’re real people with real problems.  As Jesse seeks guidance from Walt (Bryan Cranston) he is cold shoulder as Walt deals with his families trust issues after his recent disappearance.  If you have never heard of this show, It airs Sundays at 10 p.m. and is definitelyworth watching.  Without getting too much in detail, a high school teacher gets diagnosed with cancer and begins cooking meth to pay off his bills and secure his family’s financial situation.
Well that’s all the time I have for now but I’ll see you back here on Thursday.
