The writers of Weeds.
The writers of Californication.
And the newest member of my who I'm thankful for... the writer of United States of Tara. Who is none other than Diablo Cody, who wrote Juno.
I'm thankful for Toni Collette.
The guy who used to be Carrie's boyfriend on Sex in the City (although I can't remember his name)
The kid who plays the gay son so swimmingly (do you like that Jen, or no?)
and that teenage daughter. Damn does she make having an 11 year old seem terrifying.
Have. You. Seen. This. Show?
It's so fun and twisted and just out there that it brings a big old smile to my face.
The other night we watched two episodes on On Demand. There are still 3 or 4 I haven't seen. It's so exciting.
Do you know the first time we watched Weeds it wasn't until the series was over and we watched the whole thing on after I downloaded it from Itunes. The whole season at once. The joy of that is almost unexplainable.
I'm not a tv watcher really. There are shows I like, but most time I'm preoccupied with my computer or a book or magazines or something else that makes me not pay attention. If I do watch tv I have the very annoying habit (sorry Marc) of fast forwarding through half the show. I think I might have shared that before. It's sounding familiar. But I do. I don't care about most of the show. I just want to see the end. Like for instance, The Biggest Loser. I like that show. I love the trainers, I love the people, I even like that blond who is the host person, who always seems a little out of it. But the bulk of the show just bores the hell out of me. I only want to see the weigh in and then how the person who got kicked off looks.
Wow, I really veered off there.
Moral of the story: US of Tara is on Showtime, no breaks, no downtime, no boring part of the show. Just one continual shake of the head and think to yourself, "I'm not crazy at all!"
That's what I'm grateful for tonight. Let's all lower our heads in prayer.
