My brother alerted me to this show, Happy Endings, which he claims has a How I Met Your Mother vibe. Makes for good for filler TV in between watching the NBA and NHL finals.
The show stars that chick who played Kim Bauer on 24, that doctor dude from that awesome-turned-ok-turned-cancelled show Flash Forward, Damon Wayans’ son, and three other actors who either had good auditions or just got lucky.
It’s ok, I guess, good but nothing spectacular. The show had minor bumps during the first few episodes, wherein it attempts to force feed you their story lines. And while it’s not laugh out loud material, it’s both steady and fun, and at my age, I can’t afford to be too picky for good filler television anymore.
Like I said earlier, I’ve been following the NBA and NHL finals and man, it’s really great to be a sports fan.
I love a good real life drama, and sports certainly provides one with a great dosage of it. The Mavs coming back from the dead in Game 2 was unfathomable, and that victory feels doubly great as I am both a Nowitzki fan and a LeBron Hater.
And the Stanley Cup finals are great as well, with my hometown Vancouver Canucks up against the fierce Boston Bruins. Raffi Torres scoring the go ahead goal with 19 seconds left to go in the third period of Game 1 sent the whole city of Vancouver crazy. Wish I could be there, but cheering from 6,000 miles away ain’t so bad too.
Went to an old reliable last night, Azuthai in Pasay Road. Ordered the usuals, Green Curry chicken, Tom Yum soup and Pad Thai. Nice ambience coupled with good food makes returning to a place so much easier.
Azuthai is located at G/F Milkyway Bldg., 900 A. Arnaiz Ave. cor. Paseo de Roxas, Makati.
