A TV box when i grow up.

Always wanted to have my time on 30 Rock but never got the chance to. So after a few nights with my Family Guy, i was torn between some of the life’s toughest decisions.

1) Continue where i left off – Brothers & Sisters Season 2

2) Continue where i left off – Grey’s Anatomy Season 3

3) Rewatch and waste time – The L Word Season 1

4) Star off afresh with some XOXO love – Gossip Girl Season 1

5) TINA FEY – 30 ROCK

30-rock

So i didn’t want to get wrenched up watching the Brothers & Sisters’endless squabbles and I didn’t want to be crying buckets tonight with Grey’s cos it makes me sad. And hmm, I have my reservations about XOXO cos i’m more of an O.C fan. I prefer the West Coast kinda drama than the opulent Upper East Side New York City. Besides, there isn’t any Ryan Atwood equivalent in there or so i observed. And no, i’m not going to rewatch L Word  and like i’ve said – Waste time. I shall be good and patient and wait for Season 6 in January 18th ’09. Omg, i even remember the air date.

30 Rock, 7 episodes straight on non-stop and exclamation – I’m loving it. The whole Tina Fey sense of humor makes the show and if you’re for those of Scrubs or say Family Guy, 30 Rock won’t disappoint. Lastly, if you’re a Tina Fey fan, you will love it. The woman is a Genius. She is like the emblem of Anti-Thrash of Hollywood. She makes good shows (30 Rock, SNL), good movies (Baby Mama, Mean Girls  – it was actually Good. until they got Lindsay Lohan in it.) and is a good actress/comedian (Her Sarah Palin days just say it all doesn’t it). Love Tina Fey !

Cheers, love it when there’s a good show. 

Speaking of which, locally, our very own Channel 8 has got the thumbs up for the new ’34 Episodic Blockbuster Drama’ Little Nyonya. Maybe i’m being a little bit biased cos there is Jeanette Aw in it (Yes, i’m not afraid to admit that.) but after catching for the 3 episodes religiously, this show is indeed worthy of the ‘Blockbuster’ belt. It has been awhile since i actually caught a Ch 8 drama cos the last time i could remember, it got me scratching walls. Of course initially there was some skepticism. Okay, aplenty. But the drama in Little Nyonya is pretty engaging and intense enough in the right amount. It kinda reminds me of the Hong Kong drama War & Beauty. So hopefully, the good will continue and bring back my faith in Ch 8.  I always love to support a good local show.
