"Lost" Lost Me at Hello

Sunday nights are generally not too bad for TV. My kids love the ever so popular Americas Funniest Home Videos. I love 60 minutes, but like most people, I tune in just to see the ever so popular antics of Andy Rooney.

For a while, Hubby enjoyed tuning into the Amazing Race. I enjoyed the premise of the show, but the drama that some of the couples chose to bring along; I could honestly do without.

For me, 9 o clock was always worth the wait since it brought the arrival of my favorite housewives. Just when you think the stresses in your life are overwhelming, along comes one of those beauties from Wisteria lane to remind you just how great you have have it.

So as Sunday was coming to a close, I checked the TV lineup. What a disappointment. Since the Amazing Race and Desperate Housewives had come to a close, I guess I was hoping for the network executives to put something just as entertaining in their place....NOT!

To make matters worse, I'm the only one who was not tuned into the whole "Lost" phenomenon. But let me explain: I too was excited when it first aired. Let's face it, the first episode where the passengers were being sucked out of the airplane was amazing. I guess it was somewhere around the time they introduced the black cloud that I lost interest (First season maybe). I don't know, call it deja vue or something, but wasn't the whole concept of passengers getting stuck on an island already done before.....Gilligan's Island?

So now I have to sit and watch a tribute to Brooks and Dunn. Another disappointment. Apparently after 20 some years together, they've decided to call it quits. You must be kidding! Does anyone believe in counseling anymore. Couldn't they have talked this out a bit longer and realized what a big mistake they're making. I have no words.

Let us not forget Celebrity Apprentice. Since it's not over until 11, I'll have to wait till the morning to find out the winner. Why am I feeling that Bret Michaels will be crowned?

Here's hoping Sunday night television picks up again for the summer. Well, I guess there's always blogging. I may even get a chance to finish a book. If all else fails, I may actually get some sleep. Or I could just keep watching, and be put to sleep naturally.

Oh, is that what that whole Brooks and Dunn thing was about? Fred watched it and I took the computer.

I never did get into Lost or Housewives. As a matter of fact, the ONLY current show I watch is House. Although I do spend an inordinate amount of time watching Lucy, Andy, Bewitched, and Archie Bunker!

You didn't miss anything by not watching Lost. My husband made me stay up until midnight to watch it with him and I still have way too many unanswered questions!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I would eat at your deli:)

Oh man...How can you compare Lost to Gilligan's Island??? LOL...

Actually, I watched the first two season and part of this last season. But, I must say, I did like how they ended the final episode. It was very happy!

It's been a while since I left you any comment LOVE...nice being back!

I never got Lost either. Sundays in the Summer are really craptastic as far as TV is concerned, but we found refuge in The Closer. Wait-that might not be on Sundays. Hmm. I'm a writer as well. Ahhh-the dream of completing a book. I want to write a book, but my column has given me a 750 word tolerance. Cheers.

Stopping by from SITS and right there with you on a Lost fan,although I , too, watched it in the beginning. I opted for a good book instead and reviewed it on my blog!

I got suckered into Lost (I wouldn't say suckered had they ended it right, but it is what it is). But I decided not to take on any new shows after this season and spend that time exercising, writing and reading instead.

OH! It is so nice to finally find someone else that isn't crazy about LOST!

I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for commenting on my blog! :)

I'm relying on Netflix & Redbox to get me through these tough tv times!
