TV Junkie: Weekend Wrap Up; Studios/Networks Milk Social Media
What were your TV highlights of the weekend? For us it was all about Sunday: "Curb Your Enthusiasm" deviated from the "Seinfeld"-reunion storyline which was welcome - it's a good idea but an even better one not to over-exploit it. Larry David manages to create yet another 1/2-hour of toe-curling embarrassment this time featuring real-life couple and series regulars Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen. 9:30's "Bored to Death" was fantastically hilarious and while Parker Posey was perfect in her guest role, we feel like we just didn't get enough of her (for our liking). We finished the evening off with the raunchy humor of Showtime's "Californication" and while David Duchovny's Hank Moody sometimes feels a bit one dimensional, it's the supporting cast and guest stars like Rick Springfield that makes us feel that the show has the legs for at least a couple more really good seasons.
What we effed up: Not Tivoing "Mad Men" so we're watching it later tonight. Not that you can spoil it for us since it will probably involve Don jumping in the sack with yet another woman, some new account or other work crisis, and Betty doing something risque. We're not saying that the show is predictable or boring because these are major plot points for almost any show and what makes "Mad Men" special is the style and delivery. Cheers.
