Sorry I’ve been off the grid a couple of days! Between a nasty head cold I contracted last weekend and a completely awful and demoralizing day at work, I haven’t really had much inclination to be on the computer for fun.
Since I was sick this week, I had plenty of time to catch up on my new favorite TV show, Downton Abbey! The second season is showing now on PBS as part of Masterpiece Classic, but the first season is on Netflix’s instant queue right now. I absolutely love British period dramas and this one is no exception. It’s very well acted and the writing is riveting, everytime an episode ends I can’t wait to see the next!
Are you watching Downton Abbey? What TV shows are you hooked on?
Have a great weekend!
I have begun watching Asian Dramas again on KSCI! God, love that channel. This one is called Cain and Abel, it’s Korean. Unfortunately I came into it partway through, so I’m a little fuzzy on the storyline so far. I think I came in midway through the first episode (I hope). It stars the same guy as my other favorite, So Ji Sub from Thousand Years of Love. Apparently Cain and Abel just finished airing in Korea. I like that its current!
On Tuesday night I was watching another drama when I was trying to fall asleep. It sucked me in though, so it didn’t help It was a period drama
and I can’t remember the name. Found it! It’s called Princess Ja Myung, and I guess it’s still in its original airing in Korea! Awesome!
Hopefully I’ll remember to keep up with these. I’ve always heard that Korean dramas are the best ones, that do you think?
Ok, I’ve been looking forward to the VMAs all week because I knew Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen), Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan), and Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black) would be there and would actually be presenting an award. Ecstatic! I missed the pre-show, but luckily Teresa DVR’d it so I was able to fast forward through it and make sure that I didn’t miss any Twilight cast interviews. FINALLY the show comes on. And I sit through Russell Brand’s awkward intro, Jamie Foxx’s weirdness, etc, and FINALLY OMG THE CAST OF TWILIGHT UP NEXT. I barely managed to suppress the fan girl in me, I was so giddy with excitement.
And finally! There they are! Walking on stage! Kristen looks so cute! And OH! Cam Gigandet (James) is there too! Lovely! They start talking… they each say their piece and now it’s Rob’s turn.. he says exactly ONE word, POSSIBLY TWO, when RUSSELL FREAKING BRAND INTERRUPTS HIM WITH SOME BULL CRAP ABOUT MYSTERY, AND THEN THEY CUT TO A PERFORMANCE OF PARAMORE. And Rob. Gets. To. Say. Nothing.
Why, Russell Brand, WHY?! You have Two! Hours! As the host of the show to talk! Talk to your heart’s content! Why interrupt Robert Pattinson in his ten seconds on stage?! Why?! JUST SHUT UP AND BE QUIET. Oh. I cannot convey my irritation at that moment.
I will now go troll the intarwebs for some red carpet interviews. Hopefully Russell Brand didn’t figure out a way to interrupt him there.
*edit* haha I wasn’t the only one who noticed!!
