Shit Load Of Channels

Was looking for something to watch on the TV that would pull me out of this “after the holiday funk” that has been fucking with me this year, more than usual. It is becoming more and more of a challenge to find good quality comedy based TV shows, even having a decent satellite package that comes with a shit load of channels. I can’t imagine not having the Comedy Channel, sometimes that is all there is that isn’t all about crimes and violence or some type of horrible live changing event, least I forget – all the Reality Shows that have exploded all over the air waves. I love a good laugh so I was totally caught off guard when I stumbled onto a show that looked vaguely familiar, which turned out to be the new “Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza” show that is now on GSN.

Back in October I was posting about how I missed the old Drew Carey show “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and all of a sudden this show pops up. I thought that was pretty fucking cool. From what I understand the show premiered back in April, but I hadn’t heard a word about it until I stumbled onto by accident just a week or so ago.

Drew Carey is managing to bring together so many of the “favorite improv actors” such as Kathy Kinney, Ryan Stiles, Jeff Davis, Chip Esten, Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood, Colin Mochrie and Jonathan Mangum. I’m sure we will be seeing Wayne Brady, or at least I’m hoping we will, he was the best out of the whole lot of them.

 

Movies

I am going to the movies tonight to see the new This Means War movie. It is supposed to be a fucking awesome flick. It is about two CIA operatives who are not only best friends but in love with the same girl. They decide to use all of their high tech stuff to win her over as they compete for her. She of course does not know that they even know one another. I know that this is going to be a good movie, full of action and probably laughs as well. Best friends competing for a girl is always funny on some level.

The only thing I am not looking forward to is the cost of going to the fucking theater. They have gotten ridiculously expensive. It’s bad enough that the door price has gone up, but the snacks are astronomical. Pop corn should not cost ten dollars for a damned bucket. Inflation has sky rocketed so badly that even the most simple shit has gotten unbelievably expensive. Oh well, I shouldn’t bitch about it too much, because at least I can afford it when not many people can now a days. I hope the girlfriend is ready on time tonight, because she is always running late.
