As I Cee It

Posts Tagged ‘the profit

There is seemingly no end to how much I talk about television with you guys. And here we are again. What can I say? I love watching TV. I’m not watching as many shows as I used to and, despite summers past, I anticipate a light TV schedule this summer. Below are the shows that I’m into right now that don’t go together at all.


The Profit (CNBC)
Like Bar Rescue, but better. The show, where Marcus Lemonis offers a failing company money in exchange for part ownership, is starting its third season next month. I enjoy Marcus far more than the guy on Bar Rescue. He doesn’t do all the crazy yelling seen on BR. I also like the element of surprise at the end. You never know if they’ll actually agree to the deal. I’ve only seen three episodes so far, and only one has ended up with the owners and Marcus coming to an agreement and moving forward together.


About a Boy (NBC)
I only watched this show because I adore David Walton. I have a fairly good radar when it comes to shows that don’t have a chance, but I let myself like this one anyway. It’s pretty dry, but adorable. I mean, come on, it’s David Walton!


Daredevil (Netflix)
With the exception of Ironman, Thor, and Arrow, I haven’t been the biggest superhero fan these days. I can’t watch Agents of Shield or Agent Carter, thought the last two Superman movies were complete trash, and didn’t see the last two movies in the Batman triology. However, excellent casting of Matt Murdock/Daredevil (I hardly remember the movie, can’t say for sure if I’ve seen it) and Rosario Dawson as a nurse named Claire drew me into this show. Their chemistry is GREAT; love their scenes together. If they can fix Fisk (say that 10 times fast), I could continue to be down for this one.

The last member of the trio that keeps me sane is @toni_with_a_t. As much as I hated the grad school that shall not be named, I can always look back on our friendship as the highlight of that time. Thanks for always being down for whatever ridiculous idea either of us can come up with and for being an incredibly encouraging friend. I am inspired and motivated by your faith, I can only hope to emulate your ability to accept feedback, and I am endlessly amused by the semi-secret hoodrat ratchet chick that lives inside of you. #NationalBestFriendDay
Next! This is my Eebs. She moved all the way to Baltimore so we could hang out. Fine, ok, that was a lie. But! She's still a great friend. @eebs101, I am in awe of your dedication to serving others, I am impressed by your 17 job grind, and I admire your optimism. Thank you for keeping me from going off on people and for helping to expand my thoughts and for accepting the times when I just want to be stubborn and sit in my feelings before I even consider really addressing them. And thanks for being there when I'm ready to do so. To next year's island vacation! (Which will happen cause we need it.) #nationalbestfriendday
It's #NationalBestFriendDay so let me do my shoutouts to the trio. First up is @Jennifre, whose years of service I won't mention cause that'll age us both. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a fantastic friend over the years. We've both grown as people and in a way that keeps us bonded rather than pulling us apart. I value your honesty, I applaud your creativity, and I appreciate all of our conversations. May the Broadway shows keep a'comin, may we return to Whine & Wines, and may we always remember that we are here to support each other. This one is for you - FOR YOOOOUU! (That's my Principal Frye sketch voice, btw.)
This was an interesting and slightly terrifying experience. Shoutout to my friendtographer @jennifre for her work here and accepting my panic moment when she told me to get back into the clear box hanging off a very tall building so she could get more pictures. #Skydeck #Chicago #WillisTower #SearsTower
