Sons of Anarchy

Enough with the music montages! Did we really need two of them this week? They really don't do much for moving the plot along. The shows now 90 minutes with so much jam-packed into it we don't need any filler at all, especially montages with crappy music. I guess Kurt's gotta push Katey's album in order to get her on board for all the crazy stuff he makes her do in this show, but he's really trying my patience now. Anyway...Tara has pretty much lost everything at this point. She can't practice medicine, her lawyer bailed, her only ally, Margaret, could no longer take the heat and split to Sedona. Wendy's back to being a junkie. Juice is following her all over town and her husband's already doing someone else. Even the back up plan’s out the window: The deal with the DA is off the table. Pretty sure she's going to take that gun and do something crazy. Just not sure who she's going to point it at. Never thought I'd say this, but I didn't need to see (and I'm sure the club didn't need to see) a bad naked Jax. Tara ruins everything -- even a gratuitous Jax butt shot! The Irish and the Chinese are causing all kinds of complications for the club but the final heist is going down next week and I have no idea who's going to drive into the sunset and who isn't. Clay's also on the move and so unsure of his own future that he already signed everything over to Gemma and told her he'd see her on the other side. Just not sure what side that will be. Of course someone had to have a cup of coffee this week, who'd have thought it would be Nero and Wayne? Love this show!

The Goldbergs

When it's 9pm on Tuesday night and I scream like Bev Goldberg that "The Goldbergs” are on. My husband and my 12 year old son truly come running in. The show flies by and we all laugh out loud together. You have no idea how happy I am that this show got a full season order. This week, “The Goldbergs” got new neighbors...the Kremps. Things got off to a rocky start, Mrs. Kremp was scared of Bev and didn't want her family to be friends with Bev and her clan, but Bev wouldn't stand for that, especially when Adam and Chad Kremp had so much in common. They loved “Tron,” “Star Wars” and making movies. Where do we know Mr. Kremp from? He's been in a million shows and yet I couldn't place him and was too lazy to look him up. Loved Murray's line when Barry and Erica were begging for a second phone line in the house: "Two phone lines? What does this look like, The White House?" Come on, we all remember what it was like with one phone, that loooooong cord and our siblings screaming at us to get off the phone. My son can't believe we lived like such animals. Other 80's favorite Reebok high tops had another appearance, tape recorders, 976 numbers and Jefferson Starships "Nothin's Gonna Stop Us". Another good one and more real footage; this time Adam and his real best friend, Chad Kremp.

Little People Big World
Does Matt Roloff watch his own show? How in the world is he still married to Amy? She's SO negative and mean all the time, the house is a disaster and I'm betting he's not getting anything off her these days. Sure she's a hard worker, not lazy at all, and willing to help around the farm, but he has a staff and his kids. Does he really need Amy? I'd have divorced her or just sent her to live in the western town or the barn or someplace else on the farm. She's so freaking mean to him. This week, she tried to get Matt to do something fun with the kids other than farm work. So they had a pretty awesome game day. It included mule races, blind minefield races, a cooking competition, family trivia contest, and of course a soccer game. Jeremy was the ultimate winner, but the Roloffs are pretty competitive and took it all very seriously. On a side note, I really need to understand why the producers aren't helping Molly to get her acne under control. I love her, but she needs to get under a dermatologist’s care, order some Proactive, and get the skin situation under control. I feel really bad for her especially since she's on national TV.

News & Information:

-ABC's looking for you. Well, if you have talent that is. Send your submission to and if America votes for you, you could win a talent holding deal and be a big star. Good Luck!

-The MTV European Music Awards delivered approximately 40 million viewers worldwide. Final numbers aren't in yet, but there were close to 58 million social mentions, which was up 624% vs. last year. MTV should send a car or some sort of thank you gift to Miley Cyrus, pretty sure most of those mentions were about her outfits, her performance and maybe her pot smoking. If that was really pot. Who cares? It did the job didn't it?

-Perfect casting in my opinion...Stevie Nicks will be making an appearance on “American Horror Story: Coven.” I'm sure she doesn't even have to go to the wardrobe department. She must have something in that closet of hers that will be just right for her scenes. Five point bonus if you can name the band she is part of.

Wednesday's Trivia Question : I promised I'd keep it easy this week, so here's an easy one. Tonight is “Modern Family.” Name all three Dunphy kids. One point for each one.
