(43-34) The Show I Shouldn't Have Missed...
In my August 24, 2010 blog, "Reality Check", I wrote about how reliant I am on my DVR. Well, the thing about the DVR is, that it doesn't work UNLESS YOU PROGRAM IT.
In my March 4, 2009 "100 Random Things About Me" blog, #37 was "I've always loved award shows. But now, I keep it down to The Oscars, The Tonys,The Emmys and The Golden Globes; (oops, And SAG and Critics Choice.)" So, what do my DVR and award shows have in common? You've probably guessed it. I was unaware that the Emmys were on last night and hence I did not watch or DVR the broadcast; and I am very disappointed. I've been able to find re-runs of the red carpet coverage, and of course there's the "Fashion Police;" however, thus far I have been unable to find a FULL broadcast of the actual show. Now certainly I have bigger fish to fry and this is NOT the end of the world, but while I was trying to locate the show online; I found the opening number from the broadcast and let me just say that if this number was any indication of what the rest of the show was like; BOY did I miss a doozie. In case you haven't seen it, I'm going to share the link with you now; and if you've never checked out any other link that I've posted; I promise you that you won't want to pass this one up. If you have seen it; by all means go ahead and watch it again. I've already watched it 3 times and it just gives me a BIG smile.
Now I ask you, WHAT could be better than this?? I'd take Jimmy Fallon as a host, over Neil Patrick Harris any day; and I like Doogie; really I Doo! You've got the cast of "GLEE;" and if you've read "The Bumpy Ride" before; then you KNOW that's one of my fave shows. If you're new to my blog; I LOVE GLEE!! The effervescent Betty White (who I just blogged about last week in "Hot and Huge,"
was prominently featured; as was Tina Fey, Jon Hamm, Kate Gosselin and Randy Jackson - not a group you'd typically expect to see together. This skit was funny and innovative and in my opinion, "Born to Run" is one of the best Springsteen songs ever; so the entire number was just PERFECTION!! I think this is going to be a VERY tough act to follow; but rest assured my DVR and I will be ready next time for whoever wants to try.
Till next time...
