Mix Maven’s Tidbits 8/12/2008

Hey Pumps and Gloss-ers,

Just wanted to update you on some of my favorite things.

One of my favorite shows is Lincoln Heights.  Many fans were waiting with bated breath wondering if the show would be renewed for a 3rd season.  The new season will begin September 16, 2008, 8 PM Eastern Time.  I cannot wait to see what the writers have come up with!!  I am sure there will be more drama than the first two seasons.  Cassie and Charles will still be in a romantic limbo.  Dad and Mom will continue to face challenges in their workplaces and Lizzie and Tay will continue to learn how to navigate the mean streets of the Heights.  Set your DVRs!!!

I was sad to learn that Las Vegas on NBC has been canceled, even though I knew the show was going to be canceled when James Caan left the show and Tom Selleck joined the cast, but how I am supposed to get my weekly Josh Duhamel fix.

I also wanted to see more of the storyline with Piper and Mike and how their relationship would develop from their weird, drunken wedding.  Molly Sims bored the stew out of me as Delinda, so well.. nothing more to say about her.  I just hope that Josh Duhamel will be on my television soon, with his fine self.  If you have never seen this show *gasp* check out old episodes on TNT.

A Few of My Favorite…….

Happy Holidays (Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa) to all.

This writer’s strike is really bothering me. I am missing Conan O’Brien, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. If there were not other important things going on in my life, I would have no reason to exist. I hope both parties can come to a suitable agreement, so I can see my men live on the TV once again.

My top 5 favorites shows are (not in any specific order) that I have never discussed on Pumps and Gloss before:

  1. Eureka on the SciFi Network – Mr. Maven turned me on to this show as he is a sci-fi fan, but not in a weird/nerdy way. The show is about a sheriff who moves to a town where all the residents are geniuses. One of the major employers of the town is Global Dynamic where scientists work on high-level, top secret assignments for the Department of Defense. The show has a nice mix of romance, science and mayhem, which I totally love. The ensemble cast includes Salli Richardson, Joe Morton, and Colin Ferguson.Eureka - SciFi Network
  2. The Nanny -I love this show. When the show first aired, I was a freshman in college. At the time, I liked how Nanny Fine dressed because I, too, loved the short skirts and wore them as often as I could. The show is a classic just like “I Love Lucy.”The Nanny - Source:Amazo.com
  3. I am not a huge animated fan, but I love “The Boondocks.” This sharply written animated show is definitely NOT for the kids. The show is based on the cartoon strip of the same name. The strip contained a biting critique of popular and political culture in the United States. My favorite episodes include Gangstalicious, a rapper who gets shot and kisses a fellow male rapper. I am still trying to figure out who he is supposed to represent.The Boondocks - Cartoon Network
  4. Chuck is a new show on NBC prime time. We missed a few episodes in the beginning. Thankfully, we were able to catch on easily to the show. “Chuck” is a show about 20-something techy nerd, who accidentally downloads NSA and CIA information into his brain. Chuck works at BuyMore as a tech support that works in the Nerd Herd (i.e. Geek Squad.) He works undercover for the government and each week battles, along with his spy handlers, terrorists and other evil-doers. Chuck - NBC.com
  5. Las Vegas is worth watching for Josh Duhamel alone. He is definitely fine!! I liked the kick-a$$ nature of the show, until James Caan decided to leave the show, I am sure for valid reasons. The new addition of Tom Selleck as casino owner is a, somewhat, dull . Would have been super nice, if Mike got the President of Operations job, considering he has a degree from MIT. Still I enjoy the show, but I waiting for an increase in kick assery.Las Vegas - NBC.com
