Couch potato time
So you may have noticed a distinct lack of Basmatic lately, and for that, I'm sorry. I haven't had much time for watching and writing and posting about Bollywood films. And you want to know why?
Television. That's why.
It's a horrible excuse, and I know it. I don't think there's anything out there that's worse for you than television, which might explain why mine seems to always be on. I like things that are bad for me. Like candy. And ice cream. And running in traffic.
I don't know why, but it's a yearly ritual for me to try and watch every season premiere of any television show that a) seems mildly interesting or b) I've seen before. There are very few shows that I try hard not to miss at all, but my TV-watching habits are generally not set in stone. For example, I wanted to watch the premiere of The Gilmore Girls last week but ended up watching House instead. And then somehow I got sucked into that horribly awful teen-soap-drama mess that is One Tree Hill on Wednesday (didn't that show used to be about basketball? And isn't Chad Michael Murray a few years too old to be a believable high school senior? And why are teenagers getting married?) and Smallville on Thursday. I'm terribly hooked on Grey's Anatomy and out of a deep-seated loyalty I still watch ER from time to time - which paid off in a weird way one week a few seasons ago when real life Bollywood duo Anupam and Kirron Kher appeared as Neela's parents in one or two episodes. I used to watch Desperate Housewives but since GA moved to Thursdays I'm not setting aside my Sunday nights anymore. Ugly Betty looks promising, and it looks like another fun-filled season on Lost (and by "fun-filled" I mean "We'll never figure out what's going on, will we?").
The good news is I got Bluffmaster in the DVD player and a nice, long weekend to spend my time with it. Funtimes are fast approaching, friends.
