TV Recap: Breaking Bad, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Same Name, Big Brother, Marriage Ref

I just watched the 3rd episode of the new season of Breaking Bad and I am happy to report it is picking up.  I felt season 4 got off to a slow start, but this episode was good.  The drama is starting to build and you can tell something is going to happen.  It looks like Hank may discover something about the lab.  The expensive champagne might lead to Walt getting investigated.  One question I have about that is, if he can't spend money on champagne, how can they buy the car wash for $800,000?  Anyway, I got a chuckle out of the part where Jesse throws the money up in the air and everybody scrambled for it.  Looking forward to next week's episode.

I still feel the same way about this season of Curb Your Enthusiasm in that it has lost it's funniness.  I might have laughed once while watching the last episode.  It is ok, but either not as funny as previous seasons, or the routine has just grown old.  Still, I'll keep watching it in hopes that it gets better.

A new show has premiered called Same Name where a celebrity and a regular person who have the same name switch lives for a week.  First is was David Hasselhoff and this past week it was Kathy Griffin.  Overall the show is pretty good.  It's entertaining to see 2 people out of their element trying to live as the other does.  I'm looking forward to the episode with Mike Tyson.  He is always interesting to watch.

Big Brother is still holding my interest each week.  It's nice that it is on 3 times a week.  No other shows do that.  I was happy to see Danielle win the HOH this week.  She was the underdog so I was pulling for her to win.  It will be interesting to see what happens now the Brandon and Rachel have been nominated for eviction.  Overall my favorite house guests right now are probably Lawon, Danielle, and Adam.  I hope some of the veterans go home to even things out. 

I gave the Marriage Ref and bad review earlier this summer and I still think the show is not very good, but I have watched the past few episodes.  It is funny now and then depending on the guest panel.  I noticed it is odd how they have the stage set up with the married couple with their backs to the audience.  Also the show is so silly, yet everyone is dressed formally.  It's strange, but there is not much else to watch at that time so I usually watch it.
