I haven't discussed my TV viewing in some time, so bear with me as we get back on track here. If you're one of those people who has things like, "I don't watch much television, except for the Daily Show" on your Facebook page, you can go straight to hell.
Here's what I'm watching these days:
The Biggest Loser
Tim the Trainer got me hooked on The Biggest Loser. I used to roll my eyes at this show because it struck me as both stupid and too close to home. Turns out, it's fucking fabulous. Trainers Gay Bob and Icy Gillian are all well and good, but the real glory of this show comes in the form of humiliating challenges for the contestants. I mean, the producers work in cupcakes and spandex. Also, everytime these folks have to weigh in, they're forced into bikeshorts and sports bras. And Gillian, whom I love to hate, does this thing where she'll come up to someone in the middle of some really intense cardio, lean on the treadmill as they sweat all over the place and ask, "So, what's it like to be raped by your uncle when you were 4?" She's all about confronting demons. It's sick. That being said, if anyone wants to send me to The Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge, I'll gladly write about it. Fitness Ridge, by the way, is the actual Native American name given to the region. What a coincidence!
Parks and Recreation
The absolute best reason to watch this show is Aziz Ansari. Right?
The AMAZING Race
This is the most accurately named television show in history. It IS amazing. It's fucking amazing. As I've mentioned before, I am hell bent on getting on this show with my brother. I think Alex and I could take this thing. I've been a little bummed since Team Asperger got eliminated, so right now I'm rooting for the Globetrotters, whose names are apparently Big Easy and Flight Time. I love how the Amazing Race gives the team little captions as we watch them race around the globe. For example, Sam and Dan are sometimes captioned as, "Dan and Sam: Gay Brothers." Because they're brothers. And they're gay. Also, what country is Phil from? He has the most random accent ever.
Everyone's watching Glee. Everyone. For Sue Sylvester. Sometimes, it takes the bombardment of weekly television to really drive someone's talent home. Jane Lynch has been in movies for years, but suddenly, Sue Sylvester (and her retarded sister, OMG!) is the hottest ticket in town. I love her! And I love the gay! And I love Puck. OBVIOUSLY. Last week was the absolute best episode ever (wheelchairs and retarded people? Oh yeah...) so tomorrow night has a lot to live up to. Can. Not. Wait.
Really, it's quite a glamorous life I've got goin' on...
