Oops–add Mom to the bottom list–way too many drug jokes. I think it will be a hit with the Two and a Half Men crowd–but I am not one of those people.

I feel like I am so behind on everything!

I have only seen the upfront clips and I am not super excited about anything for fall. I will probably check out a few. Especially if they are offered early online or on demand so I can watch when I want. I am watching more and more from the DVR when I want. I really do like the idea of limited series.

Orphan Black is the BOMB. I watched it all in one day and I think it’s a must for rewatch.
