Sunday used to be for family oriented programming

Sunday nights seem to be one of the busier nights for our DVR. Thankfully there are only a few shows added to our current line up. I started watching Tell Me You Love Me and Lucy, Daughter of the Devil.

I’ve only seen one episode of Lucy so I’ll refrain my opinion but I will share my favorite line of said episode, “Does it always have to be temptation?” “It doesn't always have to be temptation, but sometimes, it's too hard to resist.”

I’ve seen three or four episodes of TMYLM. I can safely say they can do without the sex. It adds nothing to the story. The sex adds nothing to the characters. It makes me uncomfortable not because it’s a stranger’s genitalia bobbing all over my screen but because the sex is bad. It’s bad, unsatisfying sex. No gratification is seen for the male or female. It’s sex for the act of sex and not for gratification. Get rid of the bobbing balls and women peeing without wiping and add a few more session scenes.

Honestly, the only couple I actually like, which makes my husband cringe, is the old psychiatrist and her husband. I’m not saying the old coot’s bare wrinkly ass turned me on but at least they looked like they were having fun and enjoying themselves.

It’s gotten to the point now where I fast forward the sex scenes and I don’t feel like I’m missing anything crucial to the plot.

HBO, I know you guys want to add another, disturbed family show to your line up but showing boring sex or women peeing without wiping (seriously, that’s disgusting) is not going to bring you any critical acclaim or awards.

Over the summer I also watched Flight of the Conchords. I’ll be honest, it took a while to reel me in but now I can’t help but move along with the salt and pepper shakers. I also Kristen Schaal last year at Moonwork and she amuses me.

Pg’s Sunday Lineup includes:
The Simpsons
Family Guy
American Dad
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Robot Chicken
Shark (but he’s on his way out)
Law & Order (January)
Viva Laughlin (just so I can say I watched another Brit program Americanized to an early grave)
