That’s Entertainment

22 Jul

And he's the best boyfriend ever. I love him.

So…ready for another topic brought to you by the uncreative, bored teenage girl who came up with this Blog Challenge? Too bad, it’s happening. There’s only 6 more entries of these pre-thought up topics then back to the awesome things I enjoy writing about..cats and old people.

Today’s topic is all about my favorite TV shows and movies. I already have an entire page on this blog about that very topic, but if you’re too lazy to click on it, here are my top five for both categories.

Lucy had to learn about the importance of sunscreen the hard way...just like me.

1. I Love Lucy(1951-1957)

I’ve been watching this show since before I can remember and it’s still funny. Everyone loves Lucy but Fred is the most hilarious of all the characters, hands down.

(This is really just a clip for my Mom’s enjoyment. So, enjoy, Mom.)

I'm straight up mentally ill.- Tracy Morgan

2. 30 Rock (2006- Forever, I hope)

Duh, of course I love 30 Rock. I feel like I talk about Liz Lemon’s creepy similarities to me enough already.

I can blow myself, Mother. - Buster Bluth

3. Arrested Development(2003-2006)

I hope I grow up and become Lucille Bluth. She is fabulous. Arrested Development is full of very dry humor but since there are only 3 seasons, I highly recommend watching it…it’ll only take you part of one weekend. Then you’ll re-watch it FOREVER!

I know I sure would. I'd be delicious.- Harry Carey

4. Saturday Night Live (1975-The End of the World)

I don’t know one person who doesn’t like SNL.  Some people might not love the current cast but they loved it at one point in time. I loved Gilda Radner, Phil Hartman, Dana Carvey and Mike Myers, Will Farrell, Chris Kattan, Cheri O’Teri, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Plus, it’s my initials backwards (SNL/LNS). I MUST love it.

5. The Essentials with Robert Osborne

Is this cheating? Who cares. It’s on TV so it counts. Most of the time, I’ve seen the movie they pick each week, I just want to hear Robert Osborne tell me awesome facts I never knew. I also love when he disagrees with Alec. For the record, Osborne is NEVER wrong. Especially when Alec thought Marlon Brando’s version of ‘ Mutiny on the Bounty’ was better than the Clark Gable version. Brando is SUCH an over rated actor, at least in Gable’s version you can understand the lines because he enunciates when he speaks!

Silver Screen

1.Gone With The Wind (1939)

Highest grossing movie ever(check for inflation, I’m correct!), 10 Oscars, great clothes and Gable is the leading man…best movie ever. (I’m also correct about that, don’t try getting into an argument with me about this movie…I will demolish you.)

“You think beautiful girls are going to stay in style forever? I should say not! Any minute now they’re going to be out! Finished! Then it’ll be my turn!” —Fannie Brice

2. Funny Girl(1968)

Although this movie is supposed to be set in the 1910’s, it clearly looks 1960’s but I’m OK with it because the clothes and songs are so great.

"I said good day Dr. Bruster, I said good day sir!" - Dorothy Michaels

3. Tootsie (1981)

If you didn’t know I am obsessed with Tootsie by now, just click back one page on this blog. Surely I’ve referenced it recently.

"What's a re-run?"

4.  The Back to the Future Trilogy (1985/1989/1990)

I just talked about the future yesterday. I could watch these movies any time….maybe not the third one, I don’t really like westerns, but if it was on TV I’d watch it. I , stupidly, think everyone has seen these films but clearly some people’s parents hated them and never let them watch these cinematic masterpieces.

"Just how I like 'em, big and sassy!"- Bellboy

5. Some Like It Hot (1959)

Joe E. Brown and Jack Lemon should have been in more movies together because their scenes are all I really care about in this movie. Hilarious.

    HAHAHAHAHA! Did you watch the clip for Fred Mertz jeans? Riot.
    For the record, BTTF 2 is just that. A big, fat, steaming #2. #3 is waaaaay better. But we agree that #1 is just that. #1.
    And to think, you hated Some Like It Hot initially.
