Life Continues

Turns out there actually is life after Desperate Housewives. haha :P

Makes me chuckle a little whenever I get a message online from someone asking how much I miss Desperate Housewives or if I’ve found anything else to watch on TV to fill the Wisteria Lane void. Gosh, I wasn’t THAT obsessed. Who am I kidding hahaha ;).

Turns out I have. :) In fact there’s actually a tonne of stuff out there worth watching. Well not a tonne, but a few new shows out there which have turned out to be pretty awesome! :). Thought I’d mention them on here…. I mean my life is so boring right now I honestly don’t have anything to share. But before I get started….

To anyone who has followed the blog or even just read random blogs where I’ve mentioned my best gay mate… well he was in a pretty serious car accident the other week. So have pretty much just been working & doing not much else. Sucks I have no one to hang with on the weekends or over on the odd random week night, but I’m just glad he’s still alive so I’m trying to not dwell too much on the loneliness.

It’s not really my place to sit here & blabber on for the world to read about him or his accident. But I will just tell you guys that on a Friday night he was driving out in the country. It’s not mountainous as such but where he was had some pretty big slopes & small valleys if you could imagine. So basically he went off the road & crashed 10 or 12 metres down into a gully/valley thing & the car landed over top a small creek next to a waterfall.

It happened late at night & he was basically trapped there all night till someone discovered him the next morning at bout 8:30. I only got to visit him once since the crash – & never even found out till the following Tuesday when his boyfriend finally notified me on facebook. Pretty much the last to find out.

He apparently broke his neck, or snapped something inside of it on impact and was in & out of consciousness during the night. The windows were smashed so the car retained no heat as the temperature dropped outside (remember its winter here in AKL) & he told me he had trouble getting to sleep because the waterfall next to the car was so loud – he laughed when he said that, so did I :P. He had to be cut out of the car & taken by helicopter to the hospital.

He now wears a big metal head brace thing with screws against his skull & is now recovering down in Hamilton {a long way from me} with his mum. He’s got no cell phone & doesn’t seem to be checking messages online so yea…. he has to wear the brace for at least 3 months but could be more.

So when I said goodbye to him at his bed in the hospital we pretty much realised we might not see each other till Christmas time… had a little cry after, but like I said am lucky he was found & is still alive. So that’s worth waiting a few months. Was even written in the paper: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10822875

But yea, probably said more than I should have. I’m sure he’s healing fine :). Now on to more positive topics :D

As Desperate Housewives is now nothing more than a memory… I’ve had to go in search of other TV show sedatives. I’ve even had a few guys ask what I’ve been watching now…..


Ok the first new show I discovered I love is GCB – stands for Good Christian Bitches. Well I should say loved, because its already been cancelled – before it could even finish a full season {like so many new shows these days}.

I know what you’re thinking ‘Are you fucking kidding me!!!!?’. Because after I watched the premiere trailer for it ages back I thought the same thing, looked cheesy & fake & the comedy seemed so forced. Also, the fact the studio & many others claimed it would be Desperate Housewives’ replacement – pretty much made me resent it. They even showed it a few episodes before Desperate Housewives ended so the viewers would somehow move from DH to GCB, but boy were they fucken wrong. The critics bashed the shit out of it, {of course because it makes fun of religion & all the bible bashing losers in America} one claimed it was “blasphemy at its worst!” while another said “yet another outrageous attack on the Christian faith.” and the viewers couldn’t really see where or what direction the show was going. Some organisations out there even tried to get it completely cancelled before it aired. Those mother fuckers need to pull their heads out of their assholes. It’s just a TV show! And a comedy at that.


I have my best mate {who just had the accident} to thank for falling in love with it. I won’t lie, he practically forced me to watch it. I knew about it months before he discovered it & I didn’t even mention it to him because I thought it would just be a waste of breath. Then I get a text from him a while back asking me if I’d just watched the pilot episode on TV & I tell him ‘no, it looks shit’.

Then the next time we hang out, he’s downloaded all the episodes, bought them over on his portable hard drive & plays it on the TV. I really had no choice but to sit there & watch it with him. And before the pilot episode was over I had almost blown a vessel by laughing so much. I was a fan from then on.


To sum it up, the show follows Amanda Vaughn – who is a recently widowed mother of two – who, to get a fresh start, moves back to the affluent Dallas neighbourhood where she grew up to find herself in the whirling midst of salacious gossip, Botox, and fraud. Thanks IMBd :D


Amanda use to be the ‘hot queen bitch’ back in her high school days & of course treated everyone else like dirt. But the shock horror twist is, she’s actually a pretty decent person now but those 4 other girls she picked on the most won’t let her forget it & try to rub it in her face & get their own.


Cricket


The show is pretty funny. But seems not for everyone. I guess maybe I’ve just been accustomed to all that ‘women in their 40’s’ type of humour due to 8 years of watching Desperate Housewives. But I think it’s more the fact I’m a homo ;). Even so, it really has its moments – every show does.

Both me & my mate think the character ‘Cricket Caruth-Reilly’ is the best. She has one of those attitudes that I admire & her lines & the way she says them always make me smile & laugh. Her & Carlene {the new ‘queen’ bitch} have this relationship that me & him relate to. They’re best mates but are always bitching & play fighting with each other. We always try to be better than the other, and just like Carlene I am tiny & he’s taller like Cricket. I’ve even listed him in my contacts now as Cricket. And Carlene is married to this big hunky buff stud {just what I’m into} & is constantly horny {just like me}. I could go on…. :P. Basically it’s like seeing me & him if we were in our 40s & women! :P


Tyler Moore


There’s loads of other characters that rock. Like Amanda’s mother Gigi played by Annie Potts. She’s a mum we all secretly wish we had. Show also has a few hotties including Cricket’s husband who is actually gay & plays round with gorgeous ranch studs. Turns out Cricket is the only one who knows – pretty weirdrelationship. But they’re great together :).

It sucks it only lasted 10 episodes but it also kinda makes it that much more special. Plus if you add up all the minutes some other shows lasted – for example my BBC fave Gimme Gimme Gimme – those ten 43min episodes work out to be almost more than 3 whole seasons of GGG :P.

Can I also say that the Pastor is played by Tyler Jacob Moore who is fucking gorgeous. I dont know if it’s because hes a tall blonde handsome athletic stud but… no yea that’s definitely it. He makes me moan with every scene he’s in. Deff worth checking him out. He’s the perfect amount of cute/hunk all in one.

OK, next up is one that is actually loved by many people as it finished a full 22 episode Season 1 & has already been renewed for a 2nd Season which is coming out in less than a month. Revenge.


Now I must be careful with this one, could be sat here talking all night about it hahaha. I love this one too. GCB is more of a comedy show, but Revenge is over-the-top soap drama at its BEST!

Just like with GCB, I saw the trailer for Revenge ages ago. It was a lame as trailer – especially for the show it has now become. It didn’t create any ‘sparks’ for me & to be honest I thought it kinda gave off this weak overdone tone. Plus it had the hot blonde, Emily VanCamp, from recently finished ‘Brothers & Sisters’ as the lead & kinda seemed like they only used her because her last show was over & she’s young…. {everyone in Hollywood is getting old}.


I even watched the very first episode when it aired on TV here in NZ, but it didn’t seem that great. I got my sis to watch it with me & she agreed it seemed to be nothing great. She said the show was based on an idea that would make for a great movie, but couldn’t possibly be stretched out for a TV series. So that was that. I think it was about 2 weeks later, after the 3rd episode had aired on TV, that I got a text from my mate saying he’d been downloading it as it was being released in the US & he was addicted.


I figured – he’d already introduced me to so many things that I ended up adoring, so might as well dive back in. So I went online & watched the episodes I’d missed & begun rewatching it on TV & sure enough, I caught the Revenge bug.

I wasn’t the only one. The show has had COUNTLESS rave reviews, many saying it’s the best new series on TV in years. Even being nominated for countless awards, including Best New drama at the ‘People’s Choice Awards’ & ‘Teen Choice Awards’. And leading actress Madeleine Stowe was nominated ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series’ at the Golden Globes!

She plays the ‘queen’ of the Hamptons – Victoria Grayson. Or as most people call her ‘Queen Victoria’ or just ‘Queen V’. She is without doubt my highlight of the show. Such wicked style with looks that can pierce like knives, she really is a hot evil bitch at its best. She almost reminds me of Ravenna from Snow White! hahaha. So much of her dialogue is just awesome. Such evil heartless comments but with such grace & beauty. She also has a soft vulnerable side & as it turns out wasn’t always such a power glam bitch. It’s hard to believe that she is 54!!! My god, I hope when I’m in my 50s I’ll be as amazing as her! LOL :P

The show is pretty simple to sum up. Basically Amanda Clarke has returned to the Hamptons to get revenge for the betrayal/false convictions/death of her father many years ago. She’s been planning it for a while and has returned as Emily Thorne & befriends the people she needs to slowly eradicate the people who are responsible for the downfall of her father. Of course there are a few hiccups along the way – remember they had to stretch it out for 22 episodes! lol, but you never get bored. I think it just took a while to property get its roots in the ground. But now its growing like crazy!


The finale of the show was pretty amazing – especially the last 5 minutes. Had everyone at work talking about it the next day. It was done so brilliantly, the music, the slow motion plus the whole cliff hanger over the death of Queen V & overdose of her daughter & the realisation of Amanda Clarke’s mother being alive which she had no idea…. not to mention that the Grayson’s were not solely responsible for the death of her father – it goes so much, much higher…. dun dunn dunnn! ;). I was literally on my feet screaming at the TV – to Victoria not to get on the plane!


I guess this is probably the closest to DH I’ll get, am almost excited for Season 2! And as DH no longer airs on Sunday nights – its primetime spot for 8 years – guess who was lucky/worthy enough to have it…. Revenge!!! Yep, so you could say in a way that Revenge has replace the drama on Wisteria Lane. I’m glad! I wouldn’t want it to be any other show haha ;)

My other TV addiction has come in the form of Once Upon a Time. Unlike the others, I didn’t really hear about this coming out in the states – well I mean I did but didn’t take much notice – but when I saw the promos play here on TV I was pretty intrigued.


Unlike Revenge, Once Upon a Time had an amazing pilot episode – which is actually one of the strongest of the whole season – so I immediately fell in love.

It’s even more easier to sum up. It follows an enchanted realm where all the fairytale characters we know live, until The Evil Queen places a curse on the land which sends everyone to the real world {our world} to a town called Storybrooke {ok stop laughing!:P} where there is no magic & they now live their lives as normal people without any memory of what had happened or their pasts.


I think it’s just the mix of Disney  {but keep it quiet lol :P} fairytale characters in the show that I’ve grown up watching in movies ever since I can remember. Plus they are age old characters that people of all walks of life know of, even if their stories differ. The thing I love about this show is that the ‘Disney’ lovable characters we all think we know are not what they seem. This show has almost completely rewritten the origins & storylines of these characters. For example red riding hood is the one who turns into the wolf – & her granny is not the soft helpless woman we all thought. And that’s just the start….


But it also is the shows downfall I think. I mean there are so many characters and storylines going on & intertwining that many times you just forget what’s happening. Some storylines are stronger than others, some last multiple episodes while others are just one episode wonders, while some storylines seem neglected & seemed rushed or not thought-out. I’ve had to ask my sister {who, as well as my mum, LOVES this show} to remind me what’s going on or why this character did that or said that etc. I’ll admit, a few episodes in the middle – I did zone out a bit, but the show definitely picks up towards the end! :)


Also, the show tries to stay as ‘G’ rated as possible which is totally understandable {trying to score as many viewers as possible} and I’ve found some episodes, especially some scenes are just so clichéd and ‘camp’ {ya know flamboyant}. The best episodes I’ve found are the darker ones, more serious ones. But even as I say that I still enjoyed them.


But even as I say those bad things, I do love the show & really enjoyed tuning in each week to catch up on the fairytale drama. It was nominated for ‘Favourite New TV Drama’ at the People’s Choice Awards and 3 Emmy Awards –mostly for graphics & costumes as they’re pretty good ;). And the Evil Queen WON ‘Favourite Villain’ at the TV Guide Awards. She fucken rocks.

Yes it seems that 2012 is the year of the hot evil bitches because ‘The Evil Queen’ played by Lana Parrilla is right up there with Queen Victoria and Queen Ravenna. I love Queen Regina. Just so much about her that makes me adore her – costumes, lines, beauty. Plus like they always do, she has a soft side that breaks through {quite a lot actually…} & has a past which shows she wasn’t always such a bitch. She has a great look and is pretty stunning! Have been on her side the entire season.

I also need to mention that Prince Charming – played by Josh Dallas is a fucken stud. He’s hunky & blonde/reddish and is the perfect fit for prince charming. mmmmmm he gets me wet. Wish I had a prince like him to myself.

It’s funny I’ve finally decided to write about these shows in my blog, as they all finished months ago & in fact are beginning new seasons in just a few weeks from now {well except GCB :(}.


As usual True Blood came & went in its 5th Season – only has 12 episodes a Season so really flies by. The last 2 Seasons I’ve done entire blogs talking about the show & it’s almost pornographic content, but figured there was no point this year. Besides the only gorgeous babe the show really has left is Joe Manganiello – as the rugged werewolf. Sure Ryan Kwanten is still sexy as hell, but he’s got NOTHING on Joe. YUUMMM. The show never disappoints. However I didn’t enjoy this year’s whole religious theme – pretty lame. Hopefully Season 6 will get better :D.


I’ve also been following Body of Proof with ex Desperate Housewives star Dana Delany. Yes Dana as Katherine Mayfield is the only reason I gave this show a go… and I don’t regret it. It’s a nice little show. Doesn’t try too hard or try to get out of hand, has a very comfortable feel to it – if that makes any sense. I know I’ve said I don’t follow any of those millions of CSI/detective/cop shows out there & have even trash talked them countless times, but yes ok I guess I made an exception for this one. Because although this is a drama with a female lead, at heart it is another one of those crime scene detective genre types. Then again, this show is more about HOW they died, not WHO killed them which sets it apart – and also every single victim is dead hahaha. Been following it since day one & really enjoy it. Also just read that it’s been renewed for a 3rd Season – so I can’t be the only one who thinks so ;).

Is it just me? or are 90% of the shows I follow from ABC Studios? haha strange….. :)

Well I think I’ve talked enough TV bullshit to make you all fall asleep lol. Trying to plan another one of my sexy themed blogs which keep many readers happy lol. Again sorry for the delay, but seems like a common thing with this blog nowadays isn’t it. :( I’ll try change my ways!

Thanks for reading, or just perving haha :P

Laters.

    Sorry to hear about your mate. If you like Once Upon A Time, you may want to look for a program called Grimm. Same type of production. Another show is Haven, based on writings by Stephen King. I think Stephen King sucks but some stuff is okay. Yep, GCB got cancelled because of the nut job christian folk who think it was sacriligious. Yet they have no problem with discriminating against anybody else. You think it drives you crazy? You should try living in the States with these religious freaks. Please don’t think they are the majority, they are only the most vocal. Odd, but the most normal people are the ones who keep their mouths shut and the fanatics take control. But in their own words “the meek shall inherit the earth”, and they arent the meek ones. They are divisive and discriminatory. I should start my own blog… Anyway, good to hear from you, take care, and best wishes to your mate for a quick and successful recovery. I had a friend break his neck in a motorcycle accident, so I know what he’s going through.

    I love Once Upon a Time! So excited for the new season! I love how it takes old stories that we have mostly heard about, and changes them to weave them into one amazing story.

    Sorry to hear about your friend. But its Spring not winter :P

  5. joseph Says:

    Hey Davey, love reading your blog, even the ones that you think are boring. Sorry to hear about your mate, that had to have been a horrible experience. Glad to hear that he is recovering. Are you able to watch The New Normal down there? It just started here in the states and I think its hilarious. I hope all things are great with you. Dont ever stop writing!!!
