It’s always interesting to see what other channels put up against sports - especially football.
As a woman with eclectic tastes - both sports and nerdy - I’m grateful for the “last” button on my remote.
Yesterday, “Serenity” was on television. “Serenity” stars Nathan Fillion as the lead character, Mal. Mr. Fillion is great with a quip and a mean look. He’s a little more angry than Han Solo, partially because Mal was on the losing side of an intergalactic war. He’s got some issues. We all love the man with issues and a dark side.
Is it sad I know exactly when in the movie Mr. Fillion is not wearing his shirt? And that he is the reason I ignore my hubs for an hour each Monday night to watch Castle?
Today, during Round 2 of football, “17 Again” was on TV. I think Zac Efron should be in more movies - more comedic roles. He works well with Tom Lennon, of whom I am a huge fan. However, back to the sad old lady I’m turning into.
Zac is adorable in this movie - and funny. I enjoy the beginning where he dances like MC Hammer (because it’s supposed to be 1989) and then tells off the school bully in the cafeteria in whatever year is supposed to be “today.”
Maybe I’m a sucker for this movie and Zac because he is hitting on Leslie Mann, who is supposed to be my age in the movie. I’d be off kilter if Zac Efron was hitting on me whether it was for a part or not.
Oh, and they open the movie with Zac without his shirt.
See? Sad. And a tad bit creepy. Especially since I could be his inappropriately aged teen mom. Nathan Fillion - less creepy, he’s my age.
Another sad, sad middle-aged thing: when Law & Order was on this morning - I had seen all of them. No matter who was Jerry Orbach’s partner, no matter who was the assistant D.A. with Jack McCoy - I had seen all of them.
"Community" and "Psych" are in my Hulu queue, but I don’t think that counteracts the fact that I also like “Harry’s Law.”
I think it’s because I’m Gen-X that I am a hot mess when it comes to my pop culture/TV preferences. And that I'm objectifying men. It’s definitely not because I’m middle aged.
