Fall Premier Watch List

I've been trying to get here to post my fall schedule for days and my life is just not helping me out. Sorry to be so late with this info. Most of these shows will premier in the next 2 weeks so get your Tivo ready!

Here is my list of old favorites that I love and will be picking up again this fall: (this list is in premiering order)

The Vampire Diaries
Two and a Half Men
Hawaii Five -0
NCIS: Los Angeles
Modern Family
Harry's Law
The Big Bang Theory
The Mentalist
Blue Bloods

New shows I will be checking out (in premiering order)

Ringer (Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to TV Wahoo!)
Up All Night (New parents vs baby let the battle begin)
Free Agents (LOVE Kathryn Hahn, excited to see her do a main role)
The Secret Circle (from the makers of the Vamp Diaries, need I say more?)
2 Broke Girls (not much hope for this one but sometimes these comedy's can suprise you)
New Girl (Zoey Deschanel!!!!)
Unforgettable (Poppy Montgomery is a detective with special powers. Interesting)
Revenge (love a good revenge story!)
Person of Interest (my favorite writer JJ Abrams w/ Jim Caviezel SWEET!)
A Gifted Man (A surgeon who sees ghosts. Hope he's a good one or he is gunna be super busy!)
Pam Am (Mad Men has created a whole slew of these period dramas this season and Christina Ricci joins the small screen family so I'm gunna check this one out. The Playboy Club will also be of this genre.)
Terra Nova (with a 16 million dollar price tag on the premier alone we are in for some GOOOOOOOD TV)
Hart of Dixie (looks like a sweet medical drama from the CW)
Suburgatory (A teenage girl moves from the city to the suburbs. Looking for some tounge in cheek rowdy fun from this one)
How to Be a Gentleman (not much hope for this one but I'm gunna check it out)
American Horror Story (love a good horror TV show. VERY excited to see this one)
The League (a show about a Fantasy Football Leauge? I'm all in!)
Last Man Standing (Tim Allen and Nancy Travis. LOVE IT!)
Man Up (Three modern men try to get in touch with their inner tough guys and redefine what it means to be a real man... some fun dumb man humor is always a plus)
Grimm (Those fairytales were not just stories, they were warnings! OHHHHHH I'm excited!)
Once Upon a Time (Centers on a woman with a troubled past who is drawn into a small town in Maine where the magic and mystery of Fairy Tales just may be real. This and Grimm seem to be similar. We will see which one wins out)
I Hate My Teenage Daughter (A story of two life-long friends who realize their children have turned out to be the same type of unlikable bullies that made high school insufferable. Could make for a good comedy)

These are mostly network shows. There are some other cable channel things that I will need to add later.
It is NO coincidence that premier week falls on my birthday people! BEST WEEK OF THE YEAR!!!

If you have any questions about a particular show dont hesitate to ask. There are a lot more out there and I just don't have time to watch them all

Teen Wolf on MTV

So traditionally MTV shows are not my favorite. A) 90% of them are reality shows and B) their scripted shows are usually WAY over sexed.

So I tuned in out of curiosity. I mean come on, a tv series based on Michael J Fox's Teen Wolf, this had to be a disaster of epic proportions. You just can't remake a classic. Turns out MTV may have finally hit their mark.

Other than the main characters being named the same as in the movie, and there being werewolfs, the similaries pretty much end there. Which I think is a good thing. They have really taken this idea and made it their own. Its fresh, fast, and has LOTS of good story ahead. I think I would compare this to Vampire Diaries as far as look, style, and vibe of storyline. I'm 2 episodes in and can't wait for more.

The Adjustment Bureau

The previews just do NOT do this movie justice. I can’t say that I felt any driving need to see this movie. It looked interesting and Matt Damon is always good. I had a morning to kill, so I walked myself in to see The Adjustment Bureau and saw one of my favorite movies of the year (yes I realize its only March).

This movie is character driven. If you couldn't invest in the characters, in their drive, in their hearts, in their connection, then this movie would fail miserabley. It doesn’t. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt draw you in at first sight. You will sit on the edge of your seat the entire movie to see what happens to them. They truly play their roles to perfection. They let you see their personalities and the way that they interact as a couple. They share a unique bond that will make you truly believe they are soulmates.

This movie really is all about a love story but it is not just for the girls. It will entertain the guy in your life as well. It is a movie of strategy, of how the smallest of alteration in your life can completely change your path. Bend down to tie your shoe and you may never meet that one person that you share a one of a kind connection with. It’s about taking your fate into your own hands and making your own path. My favorite quote of the movie by Matt Damon's character "Holy Shit" (you'll get it when you see the movie). Everyone should get a moment like that in life.

I can’t say enough about this movie. The best way to describe how much I love it is that I was ready to buy another ticket the minute it ended. Don’t miss this movie!!! 5 of 5 stars on the Taleen scale.

83rd Academy Awards

I did a lot of fast forwarding though these awards. James Franco as a host did not carry his weight. Thank goodness for Anna Hathaway who really carried the evening with her spunk and energy. There were some fun acceptance speeches, most notably the F bomb being dropped by Best Actress in a Supporting Role winner Melissa Leo. Her genuine surprise and excitement was refreshing.

My favorite moment of the night was the Best Original Song performance by Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi. It was just so sweet!

Most of the winners were not a big surprise. It also dawned on me, while watching the awards, that there were no real blockbuster movies released this past year. I have a feeling next year will be a little more exciting.
