Thursday Thirteen (TV)

Buttercup and Bean's 13 Must-See TV

Buttercup's Picks:

1) Lost - I am totally head-over-heels addicted to this show. I haven't forgiven the creators for killing off Anna-Lucia and Shannon, and I'm dying to know wtf is up with Michael! Please don't kill off Sawyer and Sayid! That would be unforgivable. I'm breathless with anticipation for Season III, which premieres on Wednesday, October 4th at 9/8c.

2) Sopranos - I started watching this show on DVDs with Raj, and the opening bars of music always make me think of snuggling up on the couch with him watching episode after episode. During the time when we were broken up, I couldn't bring myself to watch it. Thank god we got back together before Season 6! If you haven't seen it, you have to start watching. It's arguably the best show on television. Only one more season to go and the show's finito!

3) America's Next Top Model - Models, drama, and Tyra. What's not to love? 2 Hour Premiere Wednesday, September 20th 8/7c.

4) Project Runway - Love it, love it, love it! I want to hate Heidi because she's so damn gorgeous, but she comes across on the show so funny, cute, smart, and warm, that I just can't. Plus, she looks amazing pregnant, and who can hate that? I also love the judges, Nina and Michael, and also Tim Gunn, and regularly crack up at the phrase "make it work." As far as the contestants, Vincent and Angela are horrendous!!! I loathe them with every cell in my body. They completely lack talent and had no business getting as far as they did. I want Michael-I'm-No-Captain-Save-A-Ho to win. He and Uli are my favorites.

5) Charmed - I've gushed about my love of Charmed before. I used to be addicted, but have become less enamored with the show since the Avatars and Billy. I love watching old episodes on TNT or off of the Season I DVD that I proudly own.

6) Sex and the City - I missed the whole SATC craze while it was happening because of Law School and lack of HBO, but caught up in the year after I graduated by watching every single episode and loving it. There's pretty much nothing better than a rainy day SATC marathon.

7) Entourage - What SATC was for girls, for boys. Although some of the boys' behavior is, how shall we say, questionable - such as stupid Eric having a threesome with his girlfriend Sloan and then wanting to have sex with Sloan's best friend more than Sloan (idiot!!) - the show is endlessly entertaining.

Bean's Picks:

8) Prison Break - I start my week off well, watching this monday nights with my hubby. The two main characters, Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, are HOT and very smart.

9) Forensic Files - I like watching the killer get caught. It is very cool how some random piece of material can lead a trail to the killer.

10) Body of Evidence - The hostess of this show is Dayle, an FBI agent and criminal profiler. If I could have any job in the world, it would be a forensic analyst or a criminal profiler. (I always have to calm Tex's mind, he gets a little nervous that I am so into these shows, but I always tell him, don't worry, I won't kill you...It's not worth it, I'd get caught by some sort of evidence!)

11) Mind of Mencia - This show is really funny. Carlos Mencia makes fun of everyone, that's why I like him.

12) House - House, the main doc on this show is hysterical. His personality and sarcasm is harsh at times, but I love it. They come up with the strangest "sicknesses" and he always figures out the most random symptom or "clue" to cure the patient.

13) South Park - This is an off and on show. Sometimes, I am in utter shock about what they say, but the majority of times I am cracking up. Cartman is my favorite, I just hope that my children are nothing like him! "Respect my authoritay!"

Bean said...

Buttercup, it wasn't a spelling error, Cartman really says "respect my authoritay". That's just how is sounds. It makes it funnier! Love you

Buttercup said...

Bean - OH! I'll change that right away (put it in italics next time). xo

Raggedy said...

Have a wonderful Thursday!
My TT is up

Norma said...

I'll give you House.

My TT is up.

Amy said...

I love House, and American's Next Top Model is sooooo addictive! Nice T13!

Janet said...

Ooooh, I love Lost, too, and I'm with you on Sawyer & Sayid!

I also like South Park, never know what's going to be said!

Ali said...

i have to say, it's a little embarrassing, but i LOVE southpark.

Natsthename said...

I like some of your picks, too, especially Entourage. The season that just ended, though, wasn't as good as the first two seasons. I don't know what to blame that on, but I just got tired of the Eric/threesome thing, and the friend from back home that showed up for a couple of shows, and then left. Let's see what happens with Ari and the boys NEXT season! Will they take him back???

something blue said...

I could totally get suckered into more television programs.

No more reruns! It's one of the reasons why I look forward to Fall.

I'm looking forward to checking out some new shows: Smith, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Jericho.

Carmen said...

Lost Lost Lost! I need me some Lost!

Zeus said...

I'm so with everyone else: Lost! Lost! Lost! I can't wait to blog about it, watch it, read about it, and theorize about it!

Happy Thursday to you, and feel free to visit my list as well!

Stacie said...

The only one on this list that I can really relate to is LOST...I NEVER miss and episode and am counting down the days till the new season starts. I can't wait. I used to like Charmed too, but haven't watched in quite some time! Great TT, I played too. Stacie

Stace said...

LOST is greatness. I only watch it on DVD, so I am a season behind but I wouldn't watch it any other way.

kailani said...

No better way to start the week than with Wentworth!!

Jenny said...

I get really excited when we get a House double feature...happens ever once and awhile!!

Candy Minx said...

Oh hi, I am still catching up on some Thursday Thirteens, I only saw and read with a lot of emotion your 9/11 post and memeories...

I love this list...I watcha lot of these shows and can't wait for LOST and all their hotties!!!

Plus I agree with you about Project Runway...couldn't believe that Angela and Vincent came back!!!Ugh. I hope and think Michael will win. Yes yes!!! Can't wait to watch more designs from them.

I love how the show demystifies fashion in some ways. The talent and time frames amaze me. The show demonstrates how clothes can be amde for such low costs and so quickly it is astounding. It shows us how imagination is such a large part of the magic in design. Wow!

Um, thanks so much for visiting my blog yesterday and making comments on my list about the environment and maybe some changes we could make to stop the damage we are making in the world...a lot of people made some amazing comments...and today I posted a response in a new post. I hope you might have time to drop by and read that new post. I'd like to hear what you think...

"Lost', "Prison Break", "ER", NFL games (Buttercup just groaned), "Dancing with the Stars" fun to see how the non-dancers get really good! But "Lost" and "Prison Break" at the top of the list, they are on-the-edge-of-your-seat watching....the best!!! Go Sawyer!!!!!

Gypsy said...

House is mine! Mine, mine, MINE!! ;)

MommyBa said...

South Park is hilarious! I love your list!

Just catching up on TT and as they say, it's better late than never!!
