Criss Angel is a Douche Bag

Best episode title ever? Possibly. Will it make tonight’s episode of Supernatural totally awesome, even if it’s totally craptacular? Most definitely. Are kegger and I going to start saying things like, “You know who’s a douche bag? Criss Angel.” all the time? Absofuckinglutely.

You win, Supernatural.

Vocab Word of the Week

kegger and I are starting a new Are You Me? feature: the word of the week. Each week, we’ll post a new term, word, or phrase taken from a television show. For the inaugural edition, y’all get two words. You lucky people.

piss jitters [pis jit-erz] n; 1. a shivery feeling you get when you pee; 2. a strong feeling of imminent misfortune or danger; the creeps. “If someone said something to me about my family, it’d give me the piss-jitters, but I’d ask them about it, not hide in a kitchen.”

rehymenated [re-hahy-muh-n-eyt-ed] v; becoming a virgin again after being rescued from hell by an angel and having all your old scars and injuries healed. “Brother, I have been rehymenated. And the Dude does not abide.”

Weekly Wrap-Up: All Things TV

1. The Office was cute last night, but it felt off. Although we loved Michael’s “It squeaks when you bang it. That’s what she said.” moment. And how cute are Holly and Michael? Too bad David Wallace (Hi, David Wallace! Nice to see you! You’re awesome!) is going to bust them like a pinata.

2. Supernatural was okay, but not the best of the season. However–HOWEVER–it did end on an awesomely funny moment that we will watch over and over and over again. Some clever person over at TWoP has christened it “Thigh of the Tiger.” We think that’s brilliant.

3. Pushing Daisies is getting better and better as the season goes on. Getting backstories on Olive last week and Emerson this week really helps balance out all the focus on Ned and Chuck. Thanks to Emerson, we learned a new way to make friends (Hi. My name is Blah Blah. Do you like blooby-bloo? I do, too. Let’s be friends!), which is a nice follow up to his lessons in how the mind works from two weeks ago: “Do you understand how a head works? Do you? Because very time you say something I got to think it. You say ‘Monkey in a bellhop suit driving a car,’ I think ‘Monkey in a bellhop suit driving a car.'”

4. Chuck also continues getting better this season. We have to find a way to book DJ John Casey and DJ Mad Dog Carmichael for a party. Poor Sarah/Jenny/Katie/whatever her name is. Also: she beat the crap out of Nicole Richie. That makes us really happy, and probably a little mean. Also also: Corey is all grown up! But where were Shawn and Topanga?)

5. How I Met Your Mother should be called How Ted’s heart gets broken all the time. amelie knew Stella wasn’t the mother (amelie: unless she is and then I knew that, too), but poor Teddy boy. Maybe we’ll get to see another awesome break-up beard. This show is good at continuity, so fingers crossed.  (kegger:  The episode ended sadly, but can I tell you just how much I loved how Barney tried to resist the bridesmaids to get Robin but then ended up having a threesome?  That’s SO Barney.) 

6.  True Blood was about as uneventful as it was last week.  To give you an idea, here’s a recap of last week:  Jason’s ass, funeral, Suckie’s boob.  That’s it.  And this week:  Suckie’s boob, Jason’s strung out on V, bar fight.  They’re making Jason into a cracked out druggie (which he TOTALLY isn’t in the book) and they’re adding all kinds of shit that isn’t in the books that they shouldn’t have bothered with.  And Voodoo exorcisms?  Really?  Just because it’s set in Lousiana?  Really?  Come up with something a little more creative than that, please!  And please, Bill, please stop calling Sookie “Suckie.”  Or actually, “Suckieeeeeeee,” because he totally draws out that last bit, and it makes my ears bleed every time.

Weeknight Smackdown!

Things have changed, but not much. We get Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday nights off now. Sunday night is a grab bag–maybe we’ll watch True Blood, maybe we’ll watch something on DVD. The question is which night is better: Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday?

Cons: It’s Monday. We hate Mondays. And since Chuck and HIMYM overlap, we have to watch one and record the other, and that’s more work than we like to do on Mondays (if you’re amelie, that involves the wonderful DVR. If you’re kegger, it involves two televisions and a VCR. Either way, it’s less than fun.)

Thursdays: My Name Is Earl, The Office, 30 Rock, Supernatural (kegger:  Psst!  You forgot It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia!) (amelie: oops!)
Pros: We’ve already established that we like to laugh. The Office–we work with these people, y’all. Everyone who’s ever worked in an office has worked with a Michael or a Dwight or a Jim or a Phyllis, and kegger actually does work with both a Dwight and a Creed. Although kegger doesn’t really watch Earl or 30 Rock, she has to admit that they are a little funny and should be included on this list. One day, she will understand why Supernatural is on this list. (kegger:  I promise, I’m really going to watch Season 1 soon!  I promise!) (amelie: mmhmm.)

Cons: Once again, everything is jammed up all over the place. Record one thing and watch another live. It gets old, and we don’t like it. Plus, the shows we like are up agains CSI and Grey’s Anatomy, so they never win in the ratings. It’s no fun being a fan of a bubble show, and those seem to be the only shows we fall for (coughVeronicaMarscough).

So, who’s the winner of the Weeknight Smackdown? Drumroll please…

Thursday Nights
.
And we are unanimous in that.

What We’re Watching: Fall ’08

Chuck

amelie: Even though season 1 was cut by the strike, it was a pretty stellar set up for what’s to come. Where else am I going to get my geek/spy love each week?

kegger: It’s like Alias meets The O.C. I’m sold.  And can I just mention that Adam Baldwin is freaking awesome?

Pushing Daisies

amelie: Poor baby was not just shortened by the strike–season 1 barely existed! But PD is that one show that doesn’t need a lot of episodes to make an impression; the pilot alone is unforgettable. The oversaturated colors, the quirky characters, the underlying layer of sadness beneath the shiny surface of humor–I want it all back and I want it back NOW. Or, you know, next Wednesday. Whatever. I’m easy like that.

kegger: I love Chuck and Ned!  And I love all of the shiny happy colors.  This show reminds me of a colorful Edward Scissorhands for some reason.

The Office

amelie: Hopefully the NBC wanktards have learned that burning off all the hour-long episodes at the beginning of the season was a colossal waste of time and talent. And even if they haven’t learned, I’m still this show’s bitch and I’ll watch whatever they come up with.

kegger: Don’t get me wrong–I LOVE hour long episodes of The Office, but KNOWING there was a strike coming up, couldn’t they have spread it all out a little bit so we wouldn’t have to go through Office withdrawls?  I hope this show never ends!

30 Rock

amelie: Each week this show gets wackier and funnier and more outrageous. And each week, I still want to hit that.

How I Met Your Mother

amelie: It’s back, babydoll! I will cry foul for years and years until NPH gets his freaking Emmy. He managed to Ted out in the season opener without douching it up. He’s funny and sweet and surprisingly deep for a self-proclaimed bimbo lover. Okay, okay, so Barney isn’t the center of the show–the whole gang is important and I’m glad we still don’t know who the mother is. I’m content to watch it play out for as long as Bays and Thomas want.

kegger: I’m a new HIMYM convert–I got hooked on it during the strike.  So this will be my first season that I get to watch while it’s actually on television and not on DVD.  And I have a feeling it’s going to be… legen… wait for it… dary!  (Shut up.  I know that was cheesy, but I couldn’t resist.) [amelie: It will also be de…wait for it…lightful. Delightful!]

Supernatural

amelie: This is my new baby, which I still haven’t gotten kegs to watch yet. I’m working on it, though. I only just caught up with season 3 (thank you, CW reruns!). The season 4 opener was so strong and wonderful that any disappointment I had in season three has been conveniently forgotten. Bring on more pretty boys hunting things. Whee!

kegger: I’ve actually never in my life seen an episode of Supernatural (and it’s all your fault, you whores at DirecTV that don’t freaking give me the CW!!!) but amelie has been trying to convince me to watch it for a while now.  I’m game.  Hot guys?  Works for me.  Or, it WOULD, if I freaking had the CW!!!!!

True Blood

amelie: I’m still on the fence about this one. On the one hand, it’s got pretty people and vampires and I think we’ve covered the fact that I’m easy. On the other hand, GOD the accents. So it’s a toss up.

kegger: I have a thing for vampires and witches and all things supernatural (which means I would probably love Supernatural, amelie!) so I’ll probably give this show a chance longer than amelie just because I like the genre.  But, I do have some serious problems with it.

1.  The books are just okay.  So far, anyway.  I’ve only read book one.  And logically, it makes sense to me that if a book that is just okay, is going to make a show that’s just okay, or worse.  Usually worse.

2.  There’s a LOT of unnecessary sex.  Don’t get me wrong, sex is fine, but unnecessary sex is just kind of annoying.  We get it.  You’re on HBO.  You can show boobs all day long.  Enough, already.

3.  The Southern accents make me cringe every time I hear them.

4.  They freaking pronounce the main character’s name “Suckie” instead of “Sookie.”  What?!?!?  Suckie?!  Um, NO!  I don’t care how Southern you are, no one would call that poor girl Suckie! [amelie: Uh, yeah, except for the part where you and I call all things True Blood-related “Suckie.”]

But still.  Vampires and hot boys?  I’ll keep watching for now.  [amelie: Psst: There are vampires and HOT BOYS in Supernatural. In case you were wondering…] [kegger:  I do believe you’ve mentioned that before, amelie.]

Supernatural Picspam: The Pilot

So, I got bored. And apparently this is what happens when I get bored. I think it’s always best to start at the beginning of something. So here it is: the pilot of Supernatural, as explained by the ‘bee.

The Supernatural Guide to Life

I’ve decided to take this summer to get started on shows I want to watch but don’t have time for during the regular season, beginning with Supernatural. I’m in the middle of season 1, but here are a few useful things I’ve learned so far from this delightfully demonic (and very…uh…attractive) show:

1. White nightgowns or dresses + blonde hair = you’re gonna die.
2. Whatever creepy thing is out there, it’s always behind you. IT’S ALWAYS BEHIND YOU.
3. Children are probably evil.
4. Never leave home without rock salt, holy water, a shotgun, a flare gun, a pistol, lighter fluid, and a lighter or matches. A false bottom in the trunk of your car can safely hide your anti-evil armory.
5. Seriously, dude. It’s behind you right now.
6. Faith healers cannot save one life without taking another. Cosmic balance and all that.
7. Ancient pagan traditions are all fun and games until people start dying at the hands of murderous scarecrows.
8. For the love of all that’s holy, pay attention to horror movies and don’t go into abandoned, haunted insane asylums/houses/cemeteries/etc.
9. Bugs suck. They suck and you should kill them before they kill you.
10. When the lights start flickering and go off for no apparent reason and when your clocks stop working, also for no apparent reason, there’s some bad jujumagumbo coming. And it’s probably behind you.
