it’s american idol season once again. 8th season. wow. i remembered na there was a time i was imagining myself on a game show (game ka na ba to be precise) and kris aquino would ask me to enumerate ALL AI winners and their runners up and i would get all of them correctly. i mean really. anyways, there’s a new judge, Kara, who talks more sense than Paula and Randy combined. (Why is Paula still there? She has no contribution whatsoever). the only one who stood out for me was ANOOP DESAI, the indian geeky guy who studied barbeque according to Simon (lolz) and who showed up in the audition room wearing a polo, shorts and slippers. it’s like love at first sight for me. ehhehe… he looks like Kumar though. But man, he has super nice voice!

here’s his audition:

i looked him up at youtube, and apparently, he was part of a singing group in college called ClefHangers, they sing with only their voices as instruments (much like our local group Akafellas), he is so gooood! they are great actually, as a group. They can sing anything! r&b, ballad, pop, RAP!! go check them out! now na!

here’s my favorite video of them, with Anoop as the main vocals, singing Kiss Kiss by Chris Brown:

i hope he makes it to the top 12.

in other news… (but still TV related)… I am loving Dexter (the series). Dexter Morgan. The serial killer who only goes after bad guys. He’s a blood spatter by day, murderer by night. Richard and I are spending sleepless nights once again just to finish the first 2 seasons (getting there..). If you do decide to check this series out, viewer discretion is advised. There’s nudity, violence (ofcourse) and so many fuck you’s. Hehehehe.

And ofcourse there’s the new season of 24, new characters, no more CTU. The first 5 episodes reveals early villains and moles inside FBI. what i find odd lang is Janeane Garofalo’s character as a computer geek (pang-tapat kay Chloe), parang very low-key, parang anyone can be given that role naman, a not-so sikat na actress perhaps, parang di lang bagay sa status nya sa hollywood. wala lang, nalungkot lang ako for jeanine, i like her pa naman.

still tv, but this time local, I love BettyLa Fea is getting better and better. I thought all along na nung Monday, gaganda na talaga si Betty (courtesy of Vicky Belo). Yun pala panaginip lang. Ok yung ginawa nila kasi parang ang bilis naman ng kwento kung pagandahin nila kagad. Now my question is, will Aldo (Echo’s character) be the one to help betty transform to a beautiful woman?

Tayong Dalawa is very promising. The first episode is fast-paced. Hindi sya mabigat sa dibdib. There’s humor injected to it and magaling at natural umarte lahat ng casts. The younger poor David is a great actor. Gina Pareno is undoubtedly a great actress. Magaling ang buong casts. I’m not sure though if i can watch this every night pero i’ll try.

I never tried watching Eva Fonda not because i don’t like it but because we don’t want Gaby to see it. She’s a late sleeper and wherever we are, she wants to be there too, kaya we carefully choose what we watch whenever she’s around. Eva Fonda is too risky. Pinoy Fear Factor naman, i only tried watching the first few episodes. Nawalan ako ng gana. Para kasi akong nanonood ng Pinoy Big Brother, may mga drama drama pa. Sana puro stunts na lang. Wala ng mga interview interview pa kung “anong masasabi mo na kesyo sabi daw ni ganyan ganyan e ganito ka daw”. hay naku.
