Going Ga-ga Over Korean Drama

About three weeks ago on one of those nothing-to-do-but-watch-tv Sundays, I came upon an Asian drama on one of the public tv stations, KTMP San Francisco.  The actors are all attractive 20-somethings.  I am not usually into Asian dramas, but  somehow I did not, could not change the channel.  Then it hit me,  I was actually enjoying this show.  It was a one-hour show that was not interrupted by any commercial breaks, which could be good and bad at the same time.  It featured four main characters, Sangmi, Heesu, Hyukjoo, and Rex.  All of them are in the entertainment business and the story revolves around these four whose love pairings and couplings make the show interesting.  The funny thing about this is that there is no subtitle for the name/title of the show and every thing else has a subtitle.  I was wondering if this is the same drama that was a big hit in the Philippines a couple of years ago.  There is a chance it is one and the same. 


Tis really the fall season.  Aside from Prison Break, House had its premier last week.  It turns out that  Dr. House is without his team in the first few shows.  I am guessing it would not take a month before he gets his team back.   So far, from one show, I could tell it’s going to be a good season.


LOST is not coming back this fall? !?  Who’s bright idea was that?

At least MEN IN TREES will be back this fall after prematurely taking it off air last season.  This is one show I cant wait to return.

Will GREY’S ANATOMY be as interesting as the past season?  Let’s wait and see.

This Day In Giants History

September 18, 1997.  Ten years ago today, Brian Johnson endeared himself to a lot of Giants fans (including me) by hitting a home run in the 12th inning of the second game of a short series of two games with the Dodgers.  His heroic over-the-fencer proved to be the impetus for the Giants to bag that year’s NL crown.  Every year since, I kinda pause and remember BJ with fondness on this date.  Especially this year, with the Giants doing so poorly, a blast from the past is what we need. 

oOo  oOo  oOo  oOo  oOo  oOo

Well Prison Break’s back.  So, Michael has a lot on his hands this season; looks like it anyway.  Are they going to phase out Sara?  I hope not.  Her name’s not in the casting (or did I just miss it?) and I was freaking out.  I heard nothing to suggest that they are killing the Sara character.  Is Kellerman out of the show for good?  I hear he’s in Dr. Addison’s Private Practice.  I don’t think that show’s gonna pan out.

oOo  oOo  oOo  oOo  oOo

So, my regulars won some Emmy’s….Dr. Izzie, Nora Walker, and John Locke.  Hubby asked why his favorite show garnered no Emmy nominations (was asking the same thing about my PB).  Wanna know what’s his fave?  Yeah…it’s Nip/Tuck.  I know, I don’t get it either.

Must Be Fall

I can’t believe that tomorrow is the premier of the third season of Prison Break.  Yay!  Hubby said I will be in the company of criminals again.  Told him I needed to be infront of the tube by 8 pm tomorrow.  Can’t wait. 


Tonight the Ryan Seacrest-hosted Emmy Awards take center stage at 8 pm on Fox.  Will Seacrest do a good job?  Who’s gonna win?  Don’t know the entire list of nominees, but I am hoping some of my regular must-see shows win one or two.

Top 10 Reasons Why There Couldn’t Be a Filipino-American US President,
By David Letterman

10. The White House is not big enough for in-laws and extended relatives.

9. There are not enough parking spaces at the White House for 2 Honda Civics, 2 Toyota Land Cruisers, 3 Toyota Corollas, a Mercedes Benz, a BMW , and an MPV (My Pinoy Van).

8. Dignitaries generally are intimidated by eating with their fingers at State dinners.

7. There are too many dining rooms in the White House – where will they put the picture of the Last Supper?

6. The White House walls are not big enough to hold a pair of giant wooden spoon and fork5. Secret Service staff won’t respond to “psst… psst” or ‘hoy….hoy…hoy…’

4. Secret Service staff will not be comfortable driving the presidential car with a Holy Rosary hanging on the rear view mirror , or the statue of the Santo Nino on the dashboard.

3. No budget allocation to purchase a Karaoke music-machine for every room in the White House.

2. State dinners do not allow “Take Home”.

AND THE NUMBER 1 REASON WHY THERE COULDN’T BE A FILIPINO-AMERICAN U.S.  PRESIDENT IS… 1. Air Force One does not allow overweight Balikbayan boxes!
