Mad Men. (AMC)
I’ll admit it. Since day one I’ve loved Don Draper. Is he a philanderer? Sure. Is he sort of a fraud? I suppose. Is he the 60’s answer to the 90’s Rico Suave? Absolutely. I love that in this season we’re allowed more than a glimpse into the flawed humanity that is Dick Whitman. Love, love, love it. And, I for one am quite pleased to see less and less of January Jones (Betty Draper.) She pains me. I could go on and on, but I’m attempting to keep it short and sweet.
Bottom line: BEST drama on TV. Hands down.
Flipping Out. (Bravo)
I may be a smidgen embarrassed to admit it, but I enjoy Jeff Lewis on Flipping Out. (I may or may not even follow him and his assistant/friend Jenni on Twitter.) I couldn’t believe my good fortune that the show came back on the air – what with Jeff’s falling out with his ex-best friend and all. But I’m serious: he cracks me up. The whole “cast” cracks me up. I’m so pleased it’s back.
Bottom line: Be thankful he’s not your boss. Just laugh and watch the show.
Project Runway (Lifetime)
Alright, this season has been interesting for sure. I definitely can’t stand Gretchen. Yeah, her clothes are cool. But no, she’s not cool. She’s narcissistic. And her bangs/bowl cut/mullet thing kill me. (Note, I’ve had all of those styles in years past. However, at different intervals.) Do I have a favorite yet? No. At this point I think it’s a bit too early…
P.S. I think it’s who-larious and so curious that the spin-off, “Models of the Runway” wasn’t picked up for this season. (Shocker.) And for the record, I am watching the show following with Santino and Austin Scarlet.
Bottom line: Watch the show. Fashion’s fun.
