Nurse Jackie: Season 1
FlashForward: Season 1, Part 1
Reviews after the jump!
Jersey Shore – Season 1 Uncensored (Amazon Exclusive)– Does this show even NEED a review? Relive all the drama with Snookie, The Situation and the rest of the gang. In case you’ve been living under a rock the past year, Jersey Shore follows the lives of 8 young men & women sharing a beach house for the summer. The casting is stupendous. You couldn’t have picked a better mix of ridiculously drama filled individuals if you invaded a gay men’s theater club. One of my favorite guilty pleasures.
Nurse Jackie: Season 1 – If you didn’t catch this show on Showtime, you really missed out on something special, so this is your chance to catch up. Nurse Jackie follows the always amazing Edie Falco as a sarcastic nurse in a hectic New York City hospital, doing whatever she needs to do to get the job done. Pill popping and sex crazed but also a loving mother of two, Nurse Jackie is really a gem. Check this out in time for Season 2.
FlashForward: Season 1 Pt. 1- This is one of my favorite shows of this season! If you’re a Lost fan like me, you will absolutely LOVE this show! From creepy characters, to underlying mysteries, this show is a nailbiter. A mysterious event causes everyone in the world to temporarily lose conciousness at the exact same time. Could it be nature? Could it be a worldwide conspiracy? OOOOH i love this show! You can watch these first 10 episodes before the second half of the season starts up next month!
Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant – Cirque du Freak is a coming of age story depicting two best friends as they attend a freak show which changes the course of their lives. I missed this in the theaters – & from the box office reciepts ($14 million in the US), not many of you did either. It looks very interesting & got great reviews so I’ll be checking this out. They were hoping for a franchise with this, but that’s a pretty unreachable goal at this point.
The Box – Director Richard Kelly (Donny Darko) created this thriller about a couple (Cameron Diaz & James Marsden) struggling over finances. A mysterious black box with a lone red button is left at their doorstep. The box will solve their money woes, but the catch? Someone they don’t know will die. This one faded fast in the theaters but is well worth a look.
