Lovin' Lost

I just watched the third episode of the new season of Lost and I am loving it. I had just watched season 2 and there was a throwaway line regrading an old US Army pocket knife and (spoiler alert) tonight we found out that the US Army had a hydrogen bomb on the island and a run in with the Others. I love that the show goes back to info from past episodes.

We find all this out because our castaways are currently bouncing around time. Do I understand everything that is going on? No. That's why I love it, it keeps me coming back for more. Plus as long as Juliet is around, and Desmond and Penny, I don't really mind what they do with the others! For a more in dept breakdown of the first three episodes check out Doc Jensen on

More Bachelor

Can I just say I am loving this season of the Bachelor?! For a couple reasons..

1- Love the Jason. I think he's a smart guy who really wants to find a wife. Sure he's kissing em' all, but I think he is doing it so he can find the right lady. (he's also got some nice biceps, which never hurts)


2- Love that a lot of the girls are normal-ish and down to earth. I also love that there are a lot of crazies. (ie: Shannon & Megan)

Last night we saw a two-on-one date that sent poor shy (Sandra Bullock with side-burns) girl Nikki home.

and left Stephanie, who I think we can all agree is ultra sweet and a good mom. BUT Jason just ain't gonna pick her. She's a bit motherly and I just don't see a spark.

We also saw a one-on-one date with one of my favorite girls Ms. Molly..

She's cute. She's fun. She seems real. Is he going to pick her? Something tells me no. But I could be wrong, I need to see more. Then the last date was the group date. One very painful group date for those girls. I sat there thinking to myself that there is no way I could have sat through that if I was one of those girls. No wonder they were all crying. Sometimes ABC can be a bit ruthless. I know, I know we need ratings.

It was extremely obvious he just wasn't into Megan and Shannon (SHOCKER!) I really think that Shannon must be different in real life, but she just came off weird to the rest of America. Seriously when she was begging him to keep her, I had flashbacks of how all girls are when they are 16 and just don't know how to play hard to get.

But the winner of the coveted "Giving Caitlin an Extreme Headache Award" goes to...

I think she's a closet dominatrix and am oh so glad I don't have to hear her bossing J around next week. He had one rose left, and instead of giving her another chance he booted her. You could tell she felt stupid when she left. She bugged. 'Nough said.

That leaves us with my top two faves. Gorgeous Naomi and darling Melissa.

For some reason I think Melissa is a touch in the lead, but am sure that next week we will see a bit more. And hopefully we can see blink blink Deanna come back to get rejected. This show makes my Monday's oh so much more fun!
(didn't include Jillian, because she just didn't get much face time, and i can't tell if he likes her that much. hopefully next week we see her a bit more.)

The Bachelor

Well what a night it was on the Bachelor! Oh the drama. I never really liked this girl after the first show, and I couldn't put my finger on just why. But I think we all saw a different side of her last night didn't we?

4 things in fact..

1- I believe she must be part oompa loompa with that orange spray tan

2- She likes bears.. all bears. (super deep conversation) "Sorry I lost my train of thought, what were we talking about? I was thinking about how beautiful I am."

3- Materialistic much?

4- She's a witch! Good riddance and good job Jason, for not choosing her on looks alone.

Um and when she said she was getting sick of being stereotyped for her looks, and then went on to say how amazing she was, I about wanted to barf. I bet you that ruins her dating life for a while.

As for the other girls? Stalker Shannon gets weirder and weirder..

.. I think she means well, but let's be honest. He's not choosing her. Stephanie is sweet and it was nice to see her with her little girl, but she is just awkward, and I think she acts like Jason's mom. I was uncomfortable watching her try to kiss him.

I don't like how they are trying to squeeze drama out of this show. When they had the girls sit there and call everyone out, I thought it seemed like they were trying to make it one of those trashy VH1 shows. Like Rock of Love or something. And what's with all the random people singing?! I think I am a Bachelor purist :)

My top picks are still:

I am also liking Jillian, she seems real and I like that. Plus she has way cute style.

I am booting Lauren off my list this week, because she stirred a little drama, and named names which I think always backfires. Also thank heavens that Erica left. She was one of the most annoying girls for me. And I'm sorry but she was a little butch. I am not sold on Nikki, I think she doesn't seem natural. Um and Jason is still darling. I am waiting with baited breath to find out when Deanna comes back, and I can't wait for him to turn her down down down.

The Bachelor w/ Jason (2 hour Premiere)

It's that time again for the Bachelor. Not only that, but t.v. is in full swing! Now I am getting pumped for Lost.

Okay, last night we met the girls vying for Jason's affection. I have to say it was a pretty tame crowd. There was no obscene drunk girl. And only a minor display of losing it from this lovely lady..

I guessed a lot of the girls he picked, and was shocked (as always) at some. These two in particular..
I know that they tried to edit it so that Shannon looked a bit crazy. But I think she may be a bit stalkerish, and I think that she seems like she may be currently dating someone.. (Jason in her mind) Her laugh reminded me of that cheerleader who was in the Top Two with Deanna when it came to Brad Womack.. who I realize now was the smartest man to get rid of those two girls. Deanna turned out to be a self centered pill, and the other girl got married to an ex boyfriend almost as soon as Brad dumped her. I liked how Brad was honest, and think he got a bad rap. Oops, getting off subject and season...

And Stephanie? I'm sorry, but she seems a bit old and mannish. Let's look at her again. Yep, Michael Jacksons upper lip.. or lack there of. I'm being harsh. She just seems a bit old. I think he kept her because of the sob story.

Also a new twist. (well sort of) The attempt to make the show feel like Survivor. By having the girls vote on who they wanted kicked out. But in a not so shocking twist was who actually got a rose. (Jessica called that one.)

This lady got the votes and the rose. And received it very gracefully..politely saying to the crowd... "You're a bunch of @$% holes." Lovely lady.. really.

My thoughts for the evening..

-Jason is still a hot hot man. If I were single I would be salivating. Okay, there still might be a little drool.

-I was a bit surprised to see that Deanna is coming back, have to say it all seems a little staged thus far.. but am willing to keep an open mind to see how it plays out. All I have to say that if Jason takes blink..blink...blink Deanna back, I will barf. She drives me crazy.

-This girl freaked me out..

(If you have seen Flight of the Conchords, she reminded me of their one crazy fan.)

-I was surprised neither of the Utah girls got picked. Especially Stacia, who I thought was really cute. Also, when Jason met Treasure I really wanted him to say it was a pleasure to meet her.

-These are my top picks right now..

#1 pick: Naomi

She looks like Eva Mendes.

#2 pick: Melissa

She looks so familiar, I keep getting the feeling I have seen her on t.v. before.

#3 pick: Lauren

She seems fun and down to earth

#4 pick: Molly

She was my pick for the first impression rose. I liked her better than Nikki, who I said from the very first time I saw her picture that she looked like a pageant girl.

Can't wait until next week. Love that the Bachelor is back! Not only means fun with friends every Monday. But a lot of laughs and drama.
