Secret Confession

I like mindless action movies like every other guy.  The fists of fury, the explosions, the car crashes, the scantily clad woman actresses, and the endless corny jokes.  It’s all good stuff.

However, I have a secret…I enjoy the trashy drama movies on the LMN (Lifetime Network).  Only you and my imaginary stalker Cyndi now know.  Why would I like this stuff?  It’s a train wreck in every movie.  Lots of betrayal, murder, cheating, insecure relationships, drinking, poor judgment, stalking, death.  And that’s the first half hour of any Lifetime movie!

My biggest excitement is when the cheater’s lover ends up dead!  I know it’s coming and I can’t wait.  Sure, it is predictable (it’s a movie) but it is so fun to watch.

Basically, the moral of any Lifetime movie is….well, there is no moral.  Someone will end up dead and the killer is either a) spouse b) close friend c) stranger (oh big surprise) or d) the photographer.

Yes, every time a photographer is in the movie, he’s the killer.  That is a know movie law that is true like the law of gravity.  Oh, there is a photographer in the movie?  Yup, he is the psycho/killer/stalker.

Getting back to the moral of the story: don’t cheat.  You or your lover will end up dead usually killed by the photographer you hired to photograph your cat Mr. Mittens flocking in the daisies.  A bit of a bummer, isn’t it?

 

The Biggest Loser Show

Biggest Loser

I must admit that I like The Biggest Loser and enjoy the weight loss the contestants’ experience.  The one complaint I have about the show is the weigh in segment of the show.  It drives me nuts with the digital scale numbers going up and down, the beeping (like a bad flashback to the “Price is Right” show).  You know as soon as the contestant steps on the scale, the correct weight will appear, and we should know that immediately.  The ten beeps and the imaginary suspense is just plain stupid.  The contestant isn’t jumping up and down to confuse the scale.  It’s just stupid tv nonsense.

Really, I would much prefer the beeping and the random numbers to done with.  Make more time for those fabulous commercials from the major corporate sponsors.
