Sweet Weekly Love

Monday night is my night to cook.
Tuesdays we go and visit your mother.
But Wednesday night is the night we make
Sweet Weekly Love. - "Business Time" Flight of the Conchords

Forget about must see TV on Thursdays. Thursdays are over. FACT: Tuesday is the best night for TV. Two reasons: Glee and Justified.

Glee is back tonight after way too long of a hiatus. Like, so long that even a Gleek like me kinda stopped caring. Harsh, I know. But those are the facts. However, I'm certain I will be sucked back in at the first Laaa-la-laa. Or the first slushie in the face. Or the first sighting of Puck. Or the first burn by Sue Sylvester. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, this is mandatory viewing. MANDATORY, people.

Now, you may not know a lot about Justified. It's another crime show, it's set in the South, and the main character wears a giant cowboy hat. But I'm telling you, Justified is great. And not just because Timothy Olyphant has this whole smoldery, hot, southern charm thing going on. But really, DAAAAAMMMMMMN! That boy is working it. So that helps.

If you have HBO or Showtime, or whatever cable channel Deadwood was on, you might say to yourself "yeah, yeah. I've seen Timothy Olyphant work the cowboy hat thing before." And I would reply "No, you haven't".

See the distinction?:

Justified - hot & smoldery

Deadwood - Snidely Whiplash

Other than Timothy Olyphant being in it, the only other thing I know about Deadwood is there was LOTS of cussing, mustaches, and prostitutes. Justified just has a lot of hillbilly rednecks and one fine looking US Marshall to round 'em all up and take 'em to the pokey. But also, it's funny.

I think Timothy Oliphant has weird teeth.

I adore the Snidley Wiplash reference.

Sadly, I cannot watch Glee tonight. I am far too invested in Lost, and because Matt and I watch both Lost and The Biggest Loser together, I have to record those two shows. Meaning my sad DVR can't record anything else in that time frame. So I'll just have to watch Glee online tomorrow. I'm not happy about it, but that's just how it goes.

I don't know if I can take anyone seriously when they're wearing a cowboy hat. Though cowboy hats do make me think of Bret Michaels. That's a plus.

Nikol, he takes his hat off a lot. They actually made fun of the hat in the last episode too, so I wonder if we'll see less of it.

Kristina, the weirdness of his mouth is all part of his hot charm...not in a Steve Buscemi kind of way though.

I'm going to be up too late tonight.

Tuesdays ARE the best night on TV. First there was LOST. Now we've got DEADLIEST CATCH and GLEE! Wahoo!

Glee's hiatus wouldn't have been so long if not for the dumb old Olympics.
