What-cha watching on TV Tonight? Dancing with the Stars, Bone, Alphas and/or Warehouse 13?

DWTS1I love it when the new FALL TV season starts!!!  Woohoo!!!  What I don’t LOVE is when you have to decide which favorite show to watch:

Dancing with the Stars, Season 15
Bones, Season 8
Alphas, Season 2
Warehouse13, Season 4

DANCING WITH THE STARS:
Zzzzzzz, I’m getting very sleepy from watching a REPEAT of Celebrities from Seasons past.  I agree with Joey Lawrence, that if you are going to do Celebrity REPEATS, then it should be either All WINNERS or All Pam Anderson Damian WhitewoodLOSERS!  Not a good idea to mix both.  I thought I would never be tortured again by bristroldancestiffasaboardpalin.  Sadly, she’s back for more torture!  I will try my best not to pull my hair out, or maybe just watch a few seconds and then change the channel.  Why oh why must we be forced to such a horrible dancer?  Thank goodness they did not bring Kate Gosselin + Bristol = 2 many non-dancers.  But there are some good apples in the mix, like Joey Fatone, Kirstie Alley & Pam Anderson.  I love it when the DWTS season stops, but the celebrities keep dancing, like Joey and Pam did.  Kirstie Alley is a hoot!  I love the “spice” and sass she brings.  And she keeps Maks Chmerkovskiy in line!  I am a huge fan of Tristan MacManus!  I voted for him with Nancy Grace and Gladys Knight!  Go team Pam & Tristan!!!  I will be rooting for Joey, Pam & Kirstie tonight.

Bones2BONES:
Normally, I would DVR Dancing with Stars and watch Bones instead, since they air at the same time.  But tonight’s episode of Bones looks a bit boring!  Last week was great, bringing Temperance back and re-uniting her family.  I cried!  I normally don’t watch many crime or medical shows, but hey, David Boreanaz was Angel, and where Angel goes, I follow!

ALPHAS:
Alphas2My brother said that this show copies off X-Men and that is so true.  I love Alphas, it is a great Monday night treat when sandwiched with Warehouse 13.  It also has the very cool Malik Yoba, ya’ll know I want him to play Big Daddy Baker in The Vampire Dancer Saga one day on TV or in a movie.

Warehouse 13WAREHOUSE 13:
Another great, quirky show on the Sci-Fi Channel.  Speaking of the Sci-Fi Channel, Warehouse 13 and Alphas are the only 2 shows I watch on this network.  They used to have a lot of great shows, but went all “commercial” and cares more about making money from un-related sci-fi, like wrestling shows.  Greedy, but not cool Sad smile

House Hunters1HOUSE HUNTERS:
Yep, I admit I LOVE House Hunters!  I work from home and I DVR House Hunters every day.  So I watch a new episode during my 30 minute lunch break with some popcorn.  I have been a fan since the show started and wish I could be on the show one day.  Tonight’s episode airs at 10/9 Central.

So glad they moved Grimm to Fridays, so I can watch that with Fringe.  Can’t wait for the Fringe final season premiere episode.  I don’t care for the “Visitors” storyline, I think, they jumped the shark with that and it killed the show.  Wish they had gone a different direction, but I will be still be watching till the end.  I would be cool if Sci-Fi Channel picked up Fringe or NBC.

My birthday was last Saturday and I got some cool birthday gifts:Alphas

  • Alphas, Season 1 DVD
  • Fringe, Season 3 DVD
  • Grimm, Season 1 DVD
  • Once Upon a Time, Season 1 DVD
  • Warehouse 13, Season 3 DVD
  • The Vampire Diaries, Season 3 DVD

Warehouse13I also got a new ViewSonic Windows 7/Android tablet, but can’t figure heads or tales of that thing, so ready to send it back or resell it on eBay.  Last month I got True Blood, Seasons 1-4 on eBay and that was a great, cheap deals.  I’m in DVD heaven.  Can someone explain how to get the Tablet Wi-Fi to work on both Android and Windows 7?  It wants to do only one or the other Sad smile  Can’t wait to see Once Upon a Time 2 hour season premiere on Sunday, Sept 30th Smile

DWTS2What are your favorite TV shows this Season?

What do you plan to watch tonight, this week, this season?

Spammers go away please!!!  Comments, questions, concerns are welcome!

Casting Call: Which actors would you cast to play DWTS (Tom Bergeron, Brooke Burke), SYTYCD (Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy or Cat Deeley), or Buffy characters in the Movie Version of The Vampire Dancer Saga?

The Vampire Dancer SagaI’m working on having a script written for my newly published book, The Vampire Dancer Saga.  Who do you think will be great to cast in the spoofs of Dancing with the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance and Buffy the Vampire Slayer BTVS cast members?

Let’s see if you agree with my cast suggestions:

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
This casting is super EASY!  Let’s put most of the actors from the cancelled The Secret Circle back to work:

Mutant Weirdoes (SunniHell, CA)
Buff Dude (Vampire vanquisher)Chris Zylka
Angela (Vampire)
Zanadu (Glamour dancer)
Will Potter (Male witch from London)
Wiz (Werewolf)

Phoebe TonkinYou may have noticed that Buffy is now a Buff DUDE (she’s a man, baby) and Angel is now a GIRL (Angela).  Also Xander and Willow have switched genders as well.  With that in mind, here are my choices:

  • Buff Dude is now Chris Zylka (who played Jake Armstrong on The Secret Circle)
  • Angela is now Phoebe Tonkin (who played Faye Chamberlain on The Secret Circle)
  • Zanadu is now Shelley Hennig (who played Diana Meade on The Secret Circle)
    Will Potter is now Thomas Dekker (who played Adam Conant on The Secret Circle), hope you don’t mind a bit of red hair dye to look more like Willow, LOL
  • Wiz is now Gray Damon (who played Lee LaBeque on The Secret Circle)

Shelley HennigNext, let’s take a look at the “So You Think You Can Vamp” cast:

“Places everyone. Quiet please,” shouted host Bom Tergeron. With that, the judges, KarAnna, Blen & Runo from DWSDS and Ligel Nitchgow & Murph Mare from SYTYCV with special guest judge Triple T Debs took their places at the Judges Table.

  • For Mare Thomas DekkerMurph, I would recommend an actress who can dance such as Summer Glau.  We’ve seen her dance in episodes of Firefly, Angel and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.  She is a bit young to be Mare, but I bet she can shout HOT TAMALE TRAIN just like Mary!
  • For Ligel Nitchgow, I would recommend Anthony Steward Head from Buffy The Vampire Slayer.  Anthony is only 5 years younger than the “real” Nigel, so that would be perfect.  What is he up to these days anyway?
  • For Bom Tergeron, I would recommend Sean Maher from Firefly, Warehouse 13 and The Playboy Club.  He is 20 years younger than the “real” Tom but with a bit of gray hairs (ala George Clooney), he will look very handsome.Gray Damon

Kat Dealy replaced Rook Rurke as the co-host alongside Bom Tergeron for the 3000 Vampire Olympics Finals.  “Welcome Hepcats to our 3000 Vampire Olympic Finals. Let’s give a big hand to our JEEJEDGES,” announced Kat as the Special Guest judges took their seat. Bom cracked and said, “No one can understand your cockney British accent Kat, why don’t you just say: Judges?”

  • ForSummer Glau Kat Dealy, I would recommend Kaley Cuoco from Charmed and The Big Bang Theory.
  • For Rook Rurke, I would recommend Morena Baccarin from Firefly, V and Serenity,

Wow!  I just can’t get Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly out of my head.  I love ANYTHING by the master producer JOSS WHEDON!!!
