Ed vs. Spencer and What Not

I've been home...sick all weekend. As a result I've gotten myself caught up in several cable tv marathons interspersed with an occasional flick. Here is how Xtine spent her weekend.

Ed vs Spencer.
I pray you have BBC America! Ed v. Spencer is a non-fiction series (I prefer to not use the word "reality") where Ed and Spencer are the best of friends (with a competitive edge). Each week they challenge each other to a ridiculous competition. From "who can get the sickes" to who can "earn the most money in a day." The show is utterly entertaining, fun, and lets face it both Ed and Spencer are very easy on the eyes. I think I like Spencer better.

Gene Simmons Family Jewels.
When this series first hit A&E I shrugged it off as an Osbourne's copy. And sure enough it is an Osbournes copy. But I watched every episode and needless to say I am hooked. One day I'll do a side by side caparison of both shows; both wives are named Sharon, there is a son and a daughter. Yadda yadda. But for now what I find most interesting is this show is funnier than the Osbournes. Where the only funny thing was trying to understand Ozzy. Gene on the other hand is totally articulate. Must be the tongue (ewwww). Tonight is the premiere of Season 2. Cant wait.

How Clean Is Your House?

I love this show. I have always caught bits and pieces but this weekend I was caught in a marathon. Perhaps its the quick wit of those lovely English ladies sniffing all the people's dirties or perhaps its just that this show makes me feel better about my own clutter.

Underworld: Evolution
I dont like Kate Beckinsale. Perhaps it was the moment in Pearl Harbor after the place got leveled. She lovingly looks at Ben Affleck and says, "You left and then all this happened," as she points to the burning wreckage. All this? Meaning? Pearl Harbor?? Either way, her role in Underworld ROCKS making me rethink my dislike of her. Underworld 2 was not nearly as good as Underworld 1 but nevertheless I enjoyed it.

Jerry Maguire.
Every time this movie is on I have to watch it. I guess deep down inside it is remains one of my guilty pleasure films. Perhaps it reminds me of a time when Tom Cruise seemed normal and likable. Oh well.

The end.

Kate Beckinsale's outfit alone is worth tuning into the "Underworld" films. :-)
I dvr'd all the Ed Vs Spencer last year and love them. I want new episodes!
The wife's name on Family jewels is Shannon, not Sharon. Big difference...
