Good Tee Vee Alert and Gratuitious Name Dropping

The season premiere of Nip/Tuck is on F/X tonight.

I love this show. It's so twisted and---what's the word I'm looking for here?---perverted. It's like watching a car wreck where the reason for the wreck is that people are getting it on in the car and aren't paying attention to their driving. It's just fun. If you haven't seen it, or have avoided it, you don't know what you're missing.

I also watch it because Kelly Carlson, who plays Kimber, was one of my regulars at the Bou, way back in the day, and I like to support her efforts because she's a good person. And I really mean that: she's a good person in real life. Not only did she give me a birthday card one year (would you do that for your barista?) and brought pictures in to share with me from when she snuck a camera into the Grammys (she knew one of the Barenakedladies and was his date that year), she got down on her hands and knees to help me once. One of the facets on my wedding ring came loose because I'd banged it on something and, as a result, one of the diamonds fell out. She was there at the time I noticed it and came around the corner, gave me a hug and told me to stop crying, and then she helped me look for it. She's a good person. She deserves success not just because she's willing to play Kimber.

And, of course, because I know some of you are a curious lot, yes, she is gorgeous in real life. Every single teenage boy I had working at the store was head over heels in love with her and, quite literally, fought with each other to wait on her. Kelly was embarrassed. I thought it was funny and teased her about it. She's come a long way from working at the MAC counter at the Southdale Daytons. Here's hoping she goes even further.

I've never seen it. When it first started, we didn't get the channel it was on. We do now. Is it something I'm going to get if I come into it two? seasons late? Is it gory? For some reason I am under that impression. Ithy no like gore! :)

I haven't seen it I may have to check it out.

As a side note, I though you'd type Kelly Clarkson and well lets just say I was a tad bit shocked and appalled to say the least.

This show is a total guilty pleasure.

And I have to say, this episode is hard to watch.

I have a secret crush on Christian. He's SO F'N BAAAAD. And there's almost nil in the way of "redeeming qualities." Heh.

Plus, I will always and forever love me some Liz (Roma). She rawks.
