Oh Dear God it’s back, how do these keep popping up on me? Anywhere here we go…..

For the past few weeks I haven’t been watching television, and I’ve missed all of my favorite shows, not sure what the reason I stopped, I’ve just be submerged in Korean Dramas and Korean Variety shows… and naturally I blame Netflix and Hulu for that. But lately I was feeling down and was in bed and I couldn’t really find anything on Netflix or Hulu so I went over to DramaFever.. and watched all season and well as the new episodes of After School: Lucky or Not, then I moved over to The Return of Superman… which I thought was beyond cute, but I was totally confused about the concept until someone spilled the beans that KBS had put all of the episodes on Youtube with English subtitles (Bless You KBS). So last night I’m watching this show and thinking about why I’m so into it, then I realized something this is a “:real” reality show that shows the real relationship with fathers and their young children, this is so beyond watching “housewives” living in McMansions faking wealth and making complete idiots of themselves for fame.And it’s on the opposite side of the world of a fame whoring family who’s only claim to fame is a sex tape..
I like the idea of watching something that EVERYONE can sit down and watch without feeling like it’s too inappropriate, but more than anything I love that the concept is universal, no matter what your language, ethnic background these are shows that you can laugh and find something enjoyable about.
I admit that these shows are a time commitment, each show is roughly 90 minutes, and with 50+ episodes I’m gonna be here for a while …. but I don’t mind it so much…
Until Next Time….

Ten Minutes on the Clock…..
So I’m sitting here watching (like a lot of people) are watching the Watch What Happens Live One on One with Teresa and Joe Guidice, by now everyone knows that they are going to jail and why. I did my very best to watch the interview with an open mind, and no matter what I think about Teresa or Joe the real victims of this are their children… so I’m watching the interview.
My very first thought while watching there interview and said to myself.”This is one of the most cringe worthy interviews I’ve ever seen… I thought these people had an image consultant…. they sound like idiots “ in all fairness I understand that’s a mean thing to say. But despite the fact that they had a crisis management team (which I’m sure had a lessons in speaking )seemed to be a fail. I found the couple to be (obviously nervous but still in shock) ignorant of the entire process and they didn’t seem like they were ready to take full accountability for what they’ve done.
There were certain parts of the interview that stood out for me, is their behavior during the interview. Andy asked, “what did you think would happen after you pled guilty?” Teresa’s response was, “ I dunno, I thought my lawyer would fight for me” girl please, lawyers aren’t miracle workers they can only work with what you give them, then she goes on to say, after the judge ruled she did not talk with her attorneys. She left court. It was done. This is the exact reason you’re in the situation that you’re in… you don’t ask questions and you didn’t take a proactive part in your life, I can give two craps abut her being “old school” you screwed your self to the tune of 14 months in a Federal prison.
Now Joe on the other had… he kept saying, “Watcha gonna do”, “You know” and the every popular, “I don’t know”… it was a hot mess… clearly they fired their crisis management team… otherwise they would have advised the couple not to do that interview…. just my thoughts
Until Next Time….
