Well, for some people summer is a great time to relax. I totally agree. Another thing that I love about summer, a lot of new TV shows and new seasons of the others.

These past few weeks, I spend a lot of time watching TV when I want to relax or just have nothing to do. And ever since I wrote about Japanese Game Show post and I saw how many people are actually have the same interest as me, I would like to share more about what I watch on TV.

I like funny tv shows, I watch American Funniest Home Videos and other similar programs. So, it’s natural for me to like the japanese game shows on ABC. I don’t watch MXC often though, because I just don’t know when it’s airing (I think it’s usually in the afternoon, when I’m working). Other TV show that I currently watching is: The Mole (also on ABC). It’s a show where a group of players compete and/or play as a team, and one of them is The Mole who will always try to sabotage every mission. The goal of the game is to figure out who’s The Mole, and the player will the most knowledge about the mole will win in the end. It’s on halfway of the game, only 6 players left. I think next Monday, it’s gonna be a recap of the half season.

Another channel that I watch a lot is USA. I’m waiting for new seasons of Burn Notice, Monk and Psych. I like those 3 shows very much, and I do my best not to miss them. And if I do, I’ll make sure watch it online :-P. I love action and I love comedy, so of those 3 my absolute fave is Burn Notice. I didn’t watch the first season when it aired. But I got to watch one of the encore episode and fell in love. So I finished watching the first episode online and can’t wait until next week when season 2 begins. It’s a story about a spy who get fired, so he’s trying to figure out what’s going on while taking “part-time” jobs to help regular people in trouble.

When I’m in the mood for something more serious, I watch Law&Order and CSIs, but not very often. I also watch cartoon. I love watching The Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, Naruto, Bleach, etc. I watch American Gladiator, and I will watch Olympics this coming August. Oh, and I also watch HGTV and Food Network for some ideas. Hmm, that’s all the TV shows I watch, that I can think of now.

The Emperor’s New Groove (2000) is one of my favorite Disney animation movies of all time. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a hillarious comedy about a self-centered emperor, Kuzco (David Spade) who had to learn a lesson that universe doesn’t evolve around him the hard way. I love every characters in the movie, Kuzco, Pacha (John Goodman), Kronk (Patrick Warburton), and even the villian, Yzma (Eartha Kitt). The humor is for all ages, from youngster to adults. Trust me, this movie is Llama-funny.

So anyways, so I was channel-hopping on TV, then I saw it on Disney Channel. I thought, “Sweet! Finally something worth watching.” So after a few minutes, I realize that I wasn’t watching the movie, but the tv series. It’s called Emperor’s New School, the adapted version of the movie. The story is about Kuzco returning to school to complete his education before he can claim the throne. All the characters from the movie are on the show. Yzma disguises herself as a principal Amzy (:lol: smart). There are some new characters: teachers, school-mates, and Kuzco’s crush, the Hottie-Hot-Hottie, Malina. All the original cast from the movie are back, except David Spade. His voice is taken over by J.P. Manoux, but I don’t mind the new Kuzco voice, in fact, he’s really funny.

So yeah, now I watch Disney Channel too along with my fellow juniors. :mrgreen:

When watching one of the episodes, during the break, I saw that they made Emperor’s New Groove 2! But this time Kronk is the man, so it’s called Kronk’s New Groove. The movie went straight to DVD, but I love it anyways. And actually I kinda like this one better than the first one. Don’t get me wrong, the first one is hilarious. But after watching a lot of Emperor’s New School, I’m very used to watch Kuzco. So, watching Kronk as the lead character is kinda refreshing. 🙂
