some tv viewing - live action

Tonight was the newest episode of Project Runway. It was the "real woman" challenge, and I was so disappointed with one of my favorite designers. Well, he was before tonight, anyway. Ven has been one of my favorites because of some amazing work early on in the contest. He made a bustier look like a rose. It was amazing. This week, his "real woman" was about a size 14, and he practically freaked out. (he's certainly no size 0 himself) THEN, he couldn't say "you're too big for this" too many times. REALLY?!?!? The other designers were playing it up in their mini interviews. Not only did he come across as a dick personally, but that unprofessional behavior nearly cost him his spot on the show. He had his "client" and her friend both in tears by his treatment and attitude. On top of that, his design was not good. So, yeah. No longer at the top of my popularity list. I was surprised by the others at the bottom this week as well, as all three are usually strong contenders. It was a surprising episode.

SO have you seen Call of the Wildman yet? OMG! This is a series I would never have thought to like. Why did I ever even watch an episode? Well, there's Raine and her animal obsession. She alternates between cartoon channel and animal planet marathons. Frankly, sometimes the animal planet shows are a relief. So Ernie, the Turtle Man, goes and gets pesty unwanted critters out of the way of humans. He catches them and makes sure they get safely transported somewhere else where they can live happily. He is from the back woods of Kentucky, and he looks it, but man this guy seems to be such a nice guy! You might not always want to sit too close, 'cause some of those animals... well, you know. Plus, I don't think he has much volume control. He does his yipyipyip and then yells "Now that's Live Action!"  Yeah. Now we're saying it too... A charming show, though. It actually is. With real people. Or pretty real. At least as far as I can tell....
