Ohh yes… I have a new obsession :)
Big Bang Theory is one of the funniest comedy series that I’ve watched in a while. Just discovered it recently and they’re already on their third season. And as usual, I’ve been doing a viewing marathon with my hubby and SIL. We’ve just finished the second season and I’m on a hunt for the 3rd season. It’s so addictive!

The series is about 4 nerdy friends and their one hot girl-next-door friend. Never realized that there can be many different type of nerds. There’s Raj – the girl-shy nerd; Howard – the ladies-man (in his head) nerd; Leonard – the self-aware nerd; and my fave… Sheldon – the OC nerd. :) These four + Penny (the cute neighbor) have so much chemistry and comedic timing, I can’t count how many lols I have per episode.

Check it out and be hooked.

The story is getting better and better! And as expected, I’m so addicted to it, I can’t wait for wed-thursday to get the new epis.
I think I’m soo enamored by Tae-kyung! Sour on the outside by sweet and squishy on the inside :) No matter how hard he tries to be mean, he still ends up being the nice guy.
Shin-woo is also sweet, but I feel so sorry for him. He’s trying to court a very clueless girl. Haha!
And Mi-nam/Mi-nyeo.. she looks so much like Eun-hye on Coffee Prince, but I think I’m liking her more. She got the innocent look to a tee.
Oohh.. I can’t wait for the love triangle to get even more intense. AND I can’t wait for next week :(

Dunno if it’s because I watched it right after “My Girl” but after reading so much hype about My Lovely Sam Soon, I got disappointed with the story.  I must admit, the overall concept is nice.. and the show has it’s moments but.. *sigh*

Ok, the story is about a 30-something, ordinary looking Sam Soon, who just got dumped in public.  She got hired as a patissier and a pretend-gf by the rich and handsome, Jin Hun.  Love triumphs over beauty as Jin Hun chooses Sam Soon despite his mother’s objections and the fact that his perfect ex-gf wants him back.  Seems like an ideal cinderella story, right?  The formula for a romantic comedy are there.. it clicked with everybody else.. why not me? =( *double-sigh* let me count the ways..

1. Sam Soon is really not supposed to be instantly attractive, I get that.  But is she supposed to come out so unrefined?  It’s the small things, chewing with the mouth opened, being so disagreeable, walking with no poise at all..

2. Jin Hun – he can’t seem to make up his mind.  He likes Sam Soon – he likes the ex – he’s sure he likes Sam Soon but he’d have to do this for his ex though it hurts Sam Soon.  The hell?!?  Poor Sam Soon. =(

3. The EX – she’s depicted to be the perfect girl.. and she originally left as a sacrifice to Jin Hun because of her love for him.  Does she deserve to be cast aside?  Hmmm?  Does Sam Soon deserve to get the guy more than her?  Hmmmm..  So sad.  Probably I should watch it one more time.  Give it one more chance?  We’ll see..


A 16-episode drama finished in 5 nights… talk about addictive. =)

Well, this story revolves around two interesting characters bound together by a lie. There is Yoo-rin, an expert fibber that you cannot help but love. And Gong-chan, he’s stuffy, righteous, rich and oh so handsome (fan-girl squeal!).

I haven’t watched lots of korean drama but I’m guessing this will stay on my top 5 lists. It is not a ‘hit you with a mallet” love story. The characters fall in love with each other gradually you don’t even notice it. It’s such a feel good story, with just the right amount of drama to give you an occasional cry =) **sigh** Hope there are more than 16 episodes of this.

And might I say, Gong-chan is one drool-worthy lead.. *squeal!* heh.. =)

Yep… that’s me!

This is what happens to me when I start watching a Kdrama (Korean drama). I can’t seem to stop watching until I finish the whole series.. which is not possible ‘coz I have to go to work at daytime (damn work!) So now I cram my watching at night until early morning.. and I spend my working hours browsing through the net on reviews for the episodes I haven’t watched =(

Yes, I know.. You can say it.. ADDICT!

“Hi, I’m Ms. Sofa Spud. And I’m a TV Addict…”

… but I can dream right? And read fan fictions =)

1. Lucas Scott & Haley James (One Tree Hill)
2. Ryan Evans & Gabriella Montez (High School Musical)
3. Michael Guerin & Liz Parker (Roswell)
4. Eli Sammler & Grace Manning (Once & Again)
5. Sark & Sydney Bristow (Alias)
6. Lex Luthor & Chloe Sullivan (Smallville)
7. Daniel Meade & Betty Suarez (Ugly Betty)
8. Tristan DuGrey & Rory Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)
9. Penny & Sheldon (The Big Bang Theory)
Draco Malfoy & Hermione Granger (well, not really TV.. but…)

How come I always root for the unconventional pairings? Because they usually have more chemistry than the main pairs? And there are sooo much possibilities. And unrequited love has more drama? And UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension) is more thrilling? All of the above? =)

And why do writers and networks doesn’t usually give in to what we (or I) want? Because when these couples become mainstream, there’s no where else to go from there. After a while, they become boring.

Case in point:
1. hyde/jackie (that ’70s show)
2. jess/rory (gilmore girls)
3. logan/rory (gilmore girls)
4. logan/veronica (veronica mars)
5. addison/maddie (moonlighting)
6. nathan scott & haley james (one tree hill)

For these characters’ squeal-worthy moments, stay tuned to future posts.. this one’s long enough =)

Well.. this is not really tv, but how cares.. it’s my blog =)

I’ve a new obsession. How can one be so obsessed with a book? Probably because the characters in the book are a collection of damaged vampires?

Can I choose which of the brothers fascinate me most…

Phury
Rhage
Vishous

Wrath
Thorment
Zhadist

and…

Butch..??? hehehe.. I wonder after all the fascinating names given to the brothers, the best name the author can think of for the human cop is Butch…

Living outside U.S. is a big disadavantage if you’re addicted to American TV.
It’s even more of a disadvantage if you live in Singapore where downloading eps can get you thrown into jail.

So for me, I rely on forum discussions on those TV shows and my imagination… that is until clips get uploaded on youtube, my new best friend =)

Best website to get intelligent and witty discussions would be on televisionwithoutpity. Try it, you’ll get addicted.

A lot of people was not satisfied that Rory’s reason for being upset about the wedding was because she wasn’t there to see it.

I found it believable. My initial reaction when I found out Lorelai eloped was disappointment for Rory. Rory should be there to see her parent’s getting hitched. She can be upset about other things, but the main reason should be because she wasn’t there. Getting married is a big thing. And knowing how close they are, they should be together in that big moment.

Just my 2cents.

laley_small.jpgOne thing that I really loved about this show is the friendship between Haley and Lucas. (We’ll aside from the fact that those two boys are sweet, sweet eye-candies.. heh! =) )Season 1 had shown that friendship quite well. After that, there more of like strangers. Which kinda made the show lose its magic for me.But in this last episode (Nothing Left To Say But Goodbye), when Haley got hit by a car (I know.. huh!? corny!), then Lucas was freaking out and had a heart attack ( hahaha.. hihi.. so cheezy.. supposed to be dramatic but.. )Well, the story line was just so overly dramatic that I found it funny. But that’s beside the point. I found it sweet that Lucas was so concerned and was freaking out that he suffered a cardiac arrest. Morbid I know, but it just showed how much he cared for Haley.

Ok. Here’s my list of heart-stopping, breath-hitching, heart jump up your throat tv moments. Mostly, scenes from my favorite couples.

1. Logan Echolls & Veronica Mars (Weapons of Class Destruction)

Nepture Grand scene – started with a ‘thank you for saving me’ peck on the cheek.. that turned into a 360 degree view of a full-blown make out scene!

I got me transfixed.. then after that scene, had to rewind back and watch again.. and again.. and again.. I switch on the sound, switch it off, on again.. I was totally captivated.

2. Ryan Atwood & Taylor Townsend (Metamorphosis)

It’s all supposed to be pretend. But I can totally understand Taylor when she fell for that kiss.

Scene: She was pleading with her husband’s divorce lawyer to grant her the divorce. Suddenly, Ryan comes in pretending to be her lover and plants the sweetest kiss on her. To complete the moment, Ryan taps her nose twice after the kiss before letting her go.

**sigh** Won’t get tired of watching that one. Taylor’s expression after mirrors what I felt after watching them.

So now, I’m obsessed.

404theoc230.jpgA brooding Ryan and an energizer bunny Taylor.The most unlikely tandem? I don’t know.But their first kiss? Was the cutest and sweetest thing I’ve seen in a while =) Though it’s all pretend. And that nose tap after the kiss? **sigh** Swoon-worthy!

oc_big.jpgHeh!Season 1 of the OC was one of the best tv show of all time. There is the adorkable Seth, the bitchy Summer and the tortured soul Ryan. (I’ll just leave out wooden Marissa if you don’t mind).Also, there are the best ‘rents ever, Sandy and Kirsten.Season 2 gave us a whiny Cohen, an alcoholic Kirsten, an almost adulterous Sandy and Ryan’s drama got tiring. Though, Summer’s still cool.Season 3 I wouldn’t know. I’ve stopped watching. Though I know they killed of the wood at season finale. Which lured me back to watching season 4.And my show’s back! Wow! I’ve no complaints yet so far. And I’m back to being totally in love with it again.Seth’s back to being adorable. Dorky? not so much.Summer’s still cool.Ryan started off being the tortured soul still (bleh!) But him in a wifebeater? No complaints here =)Sandy and Kirsten’s back to being the best tv parents!Julie and mini-Julie.. most believable mother-daughter tandem.And.. Taylor! How can I say this without gushing! I love her! Best character in a long, long time!Welcome back O.C.!

1. Jack Bristow (Alias)

Spy Daddy!

2. Lionel Luthor (Smallville)

3. Logan Echolls (Veronica Mars)

4. Sark (Alias)

1. Veronica Mars (Veronica Mars)

2. Sydney Bristow (Alias)

3. Chloe Sullivan (Smallville)

4. Lorelai Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)

1. Logan Echolls (Veronica Mars)

There’s something about bad boys… =) Can’t stay away from them..

2. Landon Carter (A Walk to Remember)

The boyfriend that only exists in dreams. The boy that would make all our wishes in your wish list come true.

3. Lucas Scott (One Tree Hill)

They say never fall in love with your best friend… But if your Haley and your best friend is Lucas Scott, why the hell not?

4. Daniel Meade (Ugly Betty)

(1) Rich; (2) Gorgeous; who cares if he’s immature? He’ll grow up eventually.. when he’s 50? =)
Anyway, there are glimpses of a great guy underneath all those childishness..

5. Jon Stewart

Huh?!? What! He’s wickedly sarcastic, intelligent and not bad to look at. You’ll never run out of things to talk about =)

well.. my one tree hill obsession is back..
I don’t know why.. Just suddenly, I have this picture of Lucas Scott’s famous squint and I’m obsessed again..

I couldn’t be pregnant again, right? The last time I was like this was when I was pregnant with our baby boy. Not a bad idea to be obsessed with them at that time, our baby turned out as gorgeous as the two Scott boys. =D

One of the most intelligent shows I’ve watched in a long time. The attention to detail is remarkable. The story for each episode are all fascinating. And the character growth of the main characters are sooo great!

I’m really obsessed with this show. And I’m sooo obsessed with Logan Echolls’ character. Initially, he’s the typical out-of-the-box jackass you normally see on any show. Then he became the character you really love to hate. Then the onion of the show, the one with all the layers to it. Then you’d start feeling sorry for him, then love him, then back to not understanding his motivations, then back to liking him. Well.. he’s a very complex character. It also helps that the actor playing Logan is one hell of an actor.

As I’ve said… I’m obsessed with Logan Echolls. =)

Though it’s not just him that made Veronica Mars one of the greatest shows this season. It’s everything about this show, the storyline, the acting, the twists-and-turns. It’s just written so intelligently. I’m just so in love with this show. I’m sure if you watch it you’ll agree with me. =)

One of my favorite tv shows. I can’t get enough of the dialogue. All interactions are just so witty and fast and it has all these pop-culture references. It’s a challenge to see if I can identify the shout-outs they put in the show.

Love how quirky Lorelai is and how grounded Rory is. Their mother-daughter combination is inspiring. I hope to have that same type of open relationship with my kid when he (they) grow up.

One guilty pleasure of mine. There’s not much depth to the stories and most of the situations are unbelievable, but what can I say… there’s just too much eye candy there =) Nathan Scott is one gorgeous boy.. hehehe…
