I am so way behind, it is time for a race through and catch up on some shows. Body of Proof continues to improve, Nikita ends its first season on a real high, Bones kills off a character, Hellcats future isn’t looking to promising and has been a little flat lately, The Killing isn’t quite doing
anything much while a whole stack of shows have been axed and quite a few on my viewing list. Drat! Chase, Off the Map, V, No Ordinary Family, Mr Sunshine, Lie To Me, The Chicago Code, Human Target – all I can say is there better be lots of good new shows…

The new comedy Mr Sunshine starring Matthew Perry is a bit hit and miss for me. Perry plays Ben, the manager of the Sunshine arena owned by Janney’s Crystal and while I don’t find the supporting cast that appealing, the biggest problem is Perry who is just obnoxious! His lecherous and selfish Ben is just not someone you root for. On the other hand, Allison Janney makes the show worth watching. She has a ball being completely over the top as she attacks children and Smurfs, ice skates and this week duets with James Taylor who plays one of her many ex-husbands. I was pretty impressed with her ice skating the other week, but she shows off a pretty damn great voice in a really lovely duet with the golden voiced Taylor. Some very funny one liners (mainly from Janney) and a very Studio 60 feel has me still quite enjoying this one.

While Glee and The Good Wife top my ‘best of the week’ list, two shows that I love but in a far more ‘ok, not classics but I love them’ ones were on my viewing list today. Hellcats is one part Bring It On (the very best – maybe only good – cheerleader movie), with a dash of Glee and a smidgeon of High School Musical (which I finally got round to watching and kind of loved today…the shame!!)
Hellcats works for me because I really like the characters. OK so lead character Marti looks and dresses like a pole dancer, but HSM veteran Ashley Tisdale is just so darn cute!
