Pigalinas Watching TV

Episode one of The Goldbergs. Mr Pigalina tries to work out who the narrator is:

Mr Pigalina: “Fat one…90210…”
Pigalina: “Erm, Ian Ziering?….”
MP: “No”
P (thinking of any 90s TV show – which by the way she was not allowed to watch due to Mummy Pigalina’s strict TV policy – if it looked like fornication then Pigalina was not watching it! (This included sitcom Friends)): “Party of Five?… Dawson’s Creek?…”
MP: “Noooo, looks like they live in a Hollywood hotel, except it’s not a hotel.”
P: “Melrose Place!”
MP: “YES!”
P: “Desperate Housewives? [Brie] Heather Locklear?”. (We were trying to guess a man so who knows what’s going on here?…)
MP: “No, not Brie, not Heather Locklear, Melrose Place!”
P: “I never watched Melrose Place!”
MP: “OK, so in this (The Goldbergs) they are using the same house they used on Alf.”
P: “Did they?!”
MP: “I dunno, probably. So you’ve got the fat one, married to hot one off Melrose Place.”
P: “She (mum off Goldbergs)’s not off Melrose Place!”
MP: “No, that’s what I’m trying to think of! That show…”
P: “So not what we’re watching?”
MP: “Noooo, irrelevant – In Melrose Place she’s dating baby face guy…I think his name was Shaun…”
P: [Illegible]
MP: “No, think of a show in the Alf house, probably the same house as Tim Allen – not “Tool Time”. Y’know, help me out.”
P: “OK. Alf.”
MP: “So, they’re off a show where we’ve always said the guy that looks like he’s from Blues Brothers would never be married to that lady…”
P: “According to Jim!”
MP: “The brother!”
P: “The blonde one!”
MP: “Yeah, fat blonde one. Sounds like him…”
P: “I’m gonna IMDB it.”
MP: “DO IT!”
P: “Narrator!… Patton Oswalt…”
MP: “I dunno who that is!”
P: “Umm…”
MP: “Show me a pic… Not the guy I was thinking of.”

365 day photo challenge July 17

American TV when will you learn? Sometimes you drag things out for too long (talking ’bout you Lost). Desperate Housewives jumped the shark years ago but when I heard it was the last season how could I not watch – having invested so much time. Watched the final episode today, was much like any other. And that was the end of that.

Went to the filming of the auditions for New Zealand’s Got Talent. It certainly has!

(Fi)X(ed)Factor USA winner announced

I had a feeling Melanie Amaro would win XFactor USA. Not because she was amazing or unique but because of the big deal that was made of bringing her back. Simon Cowell was so torn about the “mistake” he made not putting her through at the start that he was magically allowed one more singer on his team than everyone else.

Melanie never stood out. Not like Torah who didn’t make ut go the live shows, or Rachel Crow and Drew. She was and is a run of the mill Mariah Carey-alike.

I certainly won’t be buying her album. I will buy Chris Rene’s.

Next time producers, make it less obvious which plain girl with a sob story you are going to makeover and make into a cookie cutter star.
