Thursday Must Watch - Volume 31

We missed last week so there is a BUNCH to go threw :). I added in some shows that are new and some that came back that I enjoy. Hope your all having a wonderful day!!!

Of course one for Cole, as you know he is ALL about anything dino and I added this one on a while ago and it finally made it's way up my list. He actually sat there and watched it non stop ... lol it was great!

Based on the books by James Gurney, this miniseries follows two young brothers who survive a plane crash and wash up on the island of Dinotopia, a secret world where dinosaurs and humans coexist in harmony. But when their sources of power, the sunstones, begin to fail, the boys must journey to a dangerous forbidden territory in the one remaining hope to save their new home. The series stars David Thewlis and Alice Krige.
I know this won lot's of awards but it just wasn't for me, it felt more like a guy flick. If Rick would have been home this past weekend he would probably have given this a higher rating. It was a little hard for me to actually sit down and give it my full attention.

After a string of defeats, Mickey Ward rediscovers his fighting will with help from trainer and half-brother Dicky (Oscar winner Christian Bale) -- a once-talented pugilist and small-town hero now battling drug addiction.
Now Jennifer Aniston movies really haven't been hitting the mark with me. This movie really did have funny moments. I must admit I'm a Jason Bateman fan so that may have swayed my vote higher then it should be. Overall a good movie to RENT I would say Red box or Netflix since they are cheaper :)
I love Liev Schreiber on Brothers & Sisters, so when I saw this movie I added it on to my DVD list! BUT I was VERY disappointed. Half way threw it was going off, Helen Hunt couldn't even save this movie for me and usually all her movies rock :(.

Ned (Liev Schreiber) is fed up with his unfulfilling work as a writer on a flawed television show and his stagnant marriage to wife Jeannie (Helen Hunt). Just when he thinks life can't get worse, his teenage son announces he's gay and his ailing father-in-law (Brian Dennehy) moves in. Ned's relationship with an amorous co-worker (Carla Gugino) adds even more tension, but despite the setbacks, the rewards of everyday family life overcome.
Holy moly is this season of the Celebrity Apprentice, talk about DRAMA. Then you have Nene and Star on every talk show about what has been going on. I think the shock was Dionne, my mother loved her and she I know is a Diva but wow I think at times it needs to be checked. BUT she is like my grandma's age and she always will say and do things that are over the top ... lol.

All 16 celebrities will be competing in business related tasks in and around New York City, using their fame, contacts and business acumen to win weekly tasks, while ultimately raising money and awareness for their respective causes. As per usual, Trump and his advisors, who also happen to be his children and colleagues, will stand in judgment of the celebrities in the Boardroom. Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. are back and will welcome their younger brother, Eric Trump, who will be filling in as an advisor, as will longtime Trump Organization employee George Ross.

As with the previous seasons, the winning celebrity team will have the privilege of watching the losing team squirm under the scrutiny of Donald Trump and his advisors from the comfort of their own war room. After each task, the wining project manager will get to present their charity with a check. Last season, “The Celebrity Apprentice” raised over $1,250,000 for charity. The money raised this season promises to squash previous numbers and bring record-breaking donations to many worthy charities. It will truly be a “must-watch” season.
Ruby is close to my heart we both have struggled with weight, now I've never been to 700lbs like her but I feel her on loosing it . This season is a hard one she is looking deep into her past to find out what got her on this path. I see a lot her in me.

Ruby Gettinger is one of a kind! The epitome of sweet Southern charm, she truly is the life of every party, the confidante to all and an inspiration to everyone who comes into her life. Her hometown, Savannah, Georgia, is as beautiful and magnetic as her glowing personality.

Though Ruby has battled her weight since childhood, she has never allowed her physical appearance to take a toll on her social life. After being told she'd have to lose weight or risk death, she decided to change her life and her health forever...with the whole world sharing in her challenging journey!

Ruby enjoys music and movies and loves spending time with her friends, who are just like family.

She hopes her journey inspires people to "get out there, not care about what others think, and live life!

A great show that is real life and the kind of reality show that I love to watch and love to have the kids watch. These amazing people do and sacrifice so much, it is so awesome to see great things happen for them!

Lifetime Television is set to premiere the all-new reality series “Coming Home,” featuring U.S. soldiers’ surprise family reunions across the country after serving long tours of duty on behalf of the country, at 9 p.m. March 6.

Paying tribute to American armed forces personnel and their families, “Coming Home” will follow the surprise reunions of soldiers from all five branches of the military with their spouses, children, parents and other loved ones as they return home from active duty throughout the world, according to a news release,

Former “American Idol” finalist Matt Rogers will serve as host of the series’ 13 hour-long episodes, with each show featuring five reunions.

The new season on Army Wives is here and wow is it off to a bang, their are lines being drawn and maybe some friendships being tested. And next week a soldier is killed, so of course were all on the edge of our seats. Now on a side note this is just a TV show and so many military people give their lives for us to have the freedom make sure you always thank them!

"Army Wives” returned for a fifth season, premiering Sunday, March 6 at 9 pm et/pt, with 13 all-new episodes. The show follows the struggles, dreams and friendships of a diverse group of women — and one man — living with their spouses and families on an active Army post. The series films in Charleston, South Carolina, and stars Kim Delaney (Claudia Joy Holden), Sally Pressman (Roxy LeBlanc), Brigid Brannagh (Pamela Moran), Brian McNamara (Michael Holden), Sterling K. Brown (Roland Burton), Wendy Davis (Joan Burton), Drew Fuller (Trevor LeBlanc), Terry Serpico (Frank Sherwood) and Catherine Bell (Denise Sherwood). The series is based on the book “Army Wives” by Tanya Biank, who serves as a show consultant.
Now I usually don't watch DWTS but as many of you know I'm a HUGE Kristie Alley Fan and was so excited I had to set the DVR for it. I must say I was so excited that she did so well, I actually was so worried for her. Fluffy girls can rock it, and come on haters she was LOOKING awesome! I bet she really slims down with it! Love ya girl!

The cast looks sharp, confident, and ready to take to the ballroom floor Monday night. Forget the dancing for a minute, this cast is simply gorgeous to look at. All of them - young and old, stars and pros - look amazing in their costumes. Note the cute exchange between Kirstie Alley and partner Maks, they are going to be one fun couple to watch. The way Kendra Wilkinson shakes it in her fringe dress, she leaves no doubt that she is in it to win it.

  5. I'm not watching DWTS but I heard that Kirstie did a great job. I may just have to catch a few of them. I am watching Ruby. This is the first time for me, Amy said that you and her like it. It's been very good. I forgot to watch Coming Home. I don't watch Celebrity Apprentice but watched it on demand and got hooked. I am really loving this cast. I am sure I will see the Jenifer Aniston movie and I love Jason too!

  10. I haven't seen any of those - I used to watch DWTS but not this season.

    We have "The Fighter" downstairs in our Netflix pile and I bet we will watch it this weekend.

    Sorry I haven't been by this week - even though I've been "following" your blog, it hasn't showed up in my reader until this morning.

    Have a great weekend!

  11. What a whole bunch of things you reviewed this week.
    I don't like any reality shows usually, but I LOVE "Coming Home" - as you probably guessed. I sit there each week and cry watching it. I am so grateful that they can do something so wonderful for these men & women.
    I also LOVE Army Wives and am so worried about which soldier got killed last week - I have my own idea, but you never know with this show.
    Thanks for always doing this, I love your reviews.

  13. I've been meaning to watch Coming Home but can't ever seem to be by the TV when it's on. Which is probably a good thing because I've cried just watching the commercials for it.
    I loooove Celebrity Apprentice. I don't ever watch the seasons with regular folk but have watched all the ones with celebrities competing.
