Okay, so I was watching an episode of Desperate Housewives on Sony (Entertainment Television), which had no Bree – AT ALL. The episode sucked so badly, I felt sorry for it. Seriously, the best character of the show is Bree hands down, without Marcia Cross, DH will drop down on ratings. So, in the light of this crappy episode, I wanted to make a list of my favorite TV characters, in no particular order~
For those of you who don’t know, The Adventures of Shirley Holmes was a show for kids that dealt with Shirley, the great-niece of famous detective, Sherlock Holmes. She was a bright and curious young girl with some emotional and social issues, that are triggered by the mysterious disappearance of her mother, Dr. Joanna Holmes, in Rwanda.
We follow Shirley, three or four years into her mom’s disappearance, when she finally meets Bo Sawchuk, a bad-boy-turned-friend and Watson-like companion to Shirley. Together they solve mysteries dealing with insurance fraud, kidnappings, alien abductions, illegal immigrants, conspiracies, and deception – just to name a few… all ending in young Shirley learning something about herself, and other people.
A night or two ago, I watched the last episode of Reba. It’s so sad that such a fun show had to end, especially when there’s a lot of crap coming out. I can’t exactly tell you when I first saw Reba, but I truly began watching it on reruns while I was living in Canada. However, I couldn’t continue watching reruns, because I don’t think they show it in Latin America. A month or two ago, I saw it on TV – it was Sunday at 3.30pm on Fox, but I didn’t find it there the next week.
So I was in the boards at imdb.com and saw a topic saying that it was over, they also were kind enough to post a link to watch the two-part episode. Thank you for that.
I truly haven’t watch all the episodes, but I would watch every time I ran into it. CMT played reruns Mon-Fri at 6.pm – It was awesome. The characters were all funny, from Dan and Cheyenne’s retarded parenthood adventures, to Reba’s ironic comments on her ex-husband and her husband’s wife, Barbara Jean… to Barbara Jean’s retarded faces and comments, and Kyra’s smart-ass comments. It was a good family show that will probably share space in the hearts of people, just like shows such as Family Ties, Growing Pains, Step by Step, and Full House.
Come on! I still watch re-runs of Growing Pains on Nick@Nite at 3am, alongside The Addams Family, The Munsters and Bewitched! And if I stay later… I get to watch re-runs of Step by Step, and Full House. Hahaha – That’s how bad prime time television is nowadays!
