Watching TV

Just how much are we LOVING the show Leverage? This week's episode was absolutely hysterical! I loved watching the various characters trying to do their fake jobs. Come on now, can we ALL agree that Parker is just not suited to be a flight attendant? When she started her comments during the emergency landing talk, I though I was going to spit. (" In the event of a water landing, your seat cushion can be used as a floatation device. But let’s face it, if this thing goes down in the water, more than likely, the impact will kill you.”) She is becoming quite a fav. Spencer as an air marshal, I understand, but I loved how he just talked his way past everyone just by flashing a badge. But I think I found Hardison as a 'corporate guy' the funniest. Him convincing everyone in that office that he had worked there for a while and that they all knew him, was priceless--and then they even threw him a birthday party. And to top it ALL off, Jeremy fricking Roenick was one of the guards at the office building. (Roenick plays for the San Jose Sharks--NOT a favorite player by any means, but a hockey player nonetheless.) A show that makes me laugh AND throws hockey some love is a winner in my book!

Now, on to Lost. I have watched the show from day one and I'm not sure I understand WHAT is going on. I still want to know what is happening to the characters, but things better start straightening out fast or I will have to break up with the show--and I really don't want to do that. I'm really loving the Hurley character more and more--he just is a big, cuddly teddy bear--about the only one with a real conscience. I will stick with the show for a few more weeks, but if I find myself looking at the TV, shaking my head, and saying to myself "HUH???" too many more times, I will have to stop. And that would be a shame.
