Most Wanted: Those lost on 9/11

20110907-054722.jpgThis week, I couldn’t imagine adding other things below the anniversary of the most tragic event in our nations history, so there will be only one topic this week, and it will be completely dedicated to those who were senselessly killed on that day and the weeks, months, and years following that clear September morning.

1. Those Lost on 9/11

For many, the sadness of the 9/11 terrorist attacks is still as strong today as it was 10 years ago. Just thinking about it makes me cringe. I always contemplate how scared the entire world was, wondering if more attacks were on the way and eventually finding put that one of the three planes were aiming for the White House. One can only hope that nothing even remotely far from that event ever happens again, because it truly destroyed so many lives, livelihoods, families, and morales. Although I was only seven years old, I remember that day like it was yesterday, and like many in the country, I will never forget.

I will have another post this week about 9/11, and I will also be tweeting during the memorials on Sunday.

Most Wanted: Google+ back on top!

20110725-060911.jpg

This week, I have to admit a regretful week, and that was last week. Had I known, I would’ve put Comic-Con 2011 as the #1 thing to look out for. Unfortunately, the dates where screwed up in my head and I thought that the convention would be held at a later date. Still, it was a decent list with Friends with Benefits on top. Why? Because Mila Kunis is AMAZING. Anyway, this week we see a lot of new “specials” and A recent #1 pick come back on top as well as one of my favorite artists ever. Without further interruption, here’s the list! Down below…

1. Google+

Google’s fledging social network has been in a “private field beta” for nearly a month now, and if the reports are true, it should go public by the end of this week. Mashable is reporting that Google will delete all private Google+ profiles on July 31st, and that will also be the date for the public opening of Google+. Whether Mashable is correct in their reporting is still to be discovered, I do trust them, and hopefully Google will open it by this Sunday. Us teens haven’t been able to go on Google+ since Google has put an age limit of 18 to use the site.

2. True Hollywood Story: Snooki

I am still amazed and quite frustrated as to why Chelsea Handler hasn’t gotten the True Hollywood treatment, and even more amazed that after only 18 months of sudden fame, Snooki from MTV’s Jersey Shore has, and that THS: Snooki will air this Wednesday at 10. I’m not complaining though, it should be an entertaining hour, and you have to admit, it’s a pretty crazy story—so it’s perfect for E!

3. Adele iTunes Festival London EP

The 2011 iTunes Festival is winding down, but I’ve already considered it over, since Adele has already attended. Her performance was nothing short of incredible, with spot-on vocals and teasingly-funny banter with the crowd. The songs performed have now made their way to iTunes in a six-song EP, which includes a never-performed cover “I Cant Make You Love Me” and live performances of songs from her latest album, 21.

4. Tabloid

This documentary comes right off the heels of the massive News of the World phone-hacking scandal, and it’s having tremendous success on the critical side. The film focuses on a 70s celeb who falls under the pressure and lights of the paparazzi and tabloids, all while being crazy in love, which ends up destroying her career. As I mentioned before, the film has been getting rave reviews and has a smitten 89% on Rotten Tomatoes.

5. My Birthday

Although I think that this will be the worst in recent memory, I will hopefully have I nice cake and eat the entire thing myself (I love cake).

That’s a wrap! Come back next week for a fresh, new Most Wanted List!

Most Wanted: Emmy Nominations and Friday Night Lights Finale!

20110711-120853.jpg

I had a very difficult time choosing this weeks top spot, and it truly sucks that they happen in the same week. Since I only post things that occur on that week, this marks the first time that I have a tie on the list! This of course won’t happen often, but there’s a first for everything. Other things on the list include a very historic film opening/closing, another Summer TV premiere, and an iOS game I can’t stop playing. Also, since it’s a tie, I will technically have 4 slots, but it will have 5 topics, it’s just that two of them are on one number. With all that said, here’s the list!

1. Emmy Nominations and Friday Night Lights Series Finale

First, I’ll start with Emmy nominations, and I can’t wait until Thursday! We’ll find out who got nominated, who didn’t, and we’ll also find out who got a surprise non and who got snubbed. Could Joel McHale get a nom for Community? Will Ed O’Neill finally get some love from the academy? We’ll have to wait and find out this Thursday when the Emmy nominations are announced!

Next: The Series Finale of Friday Night Lights, and I couldn’t be more sad about it. I’ll be doing a full-length post later this week on the FNL, but this show is so incredible, so real, that I can’t believe it didn’t catch on. It first matter though, five seasons is an incredible amount of time for a show like this to last, although I would’ve like it to last 10 or more seasons. Get ready to cry, because this one is for the record books. Friday Night Lights ends it’s run this Friday at 8PM on NBC.

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

This film opening effectively ends the decade-long franchise that reinvigorated the book industry and brought a world of imagination to millions of readers, parents and children alike. J.K. Rowling’s adventure of the little boy who could has broken records across the board, from being one of the best-selling books of all time, to being the most successful film franchise ever, surpassing over $6 Billion in ticket sales. I honestly can’t see a franchise being so big ever again, so congrats, Harry, and thank you.

3. Rizzoli & Isles – Season Premiere

Yes, Jane and Maura are back! The biggest new hit of Summer 2010 returns with some answers regarding the shooting of Jane in last season’s finale. Did she survive? I’m certain of it. But the real question is how she changed after the shooting. Make sure you watch to get some answers tonight on TNT!

4. Tiny Tower – iPhone/iPod touch

I can’t tell you how addicted I am to this game. I can’t stop checking in to see how many coins I earned while I was gone. In this game, you basically own a building where you add apartments and stores where your tenants can work at, and as your businesses develop, you earn money and with that money, you can add additional floors, eventually making a big tower that’s crazy busy and a huge money maker. As of today, I have 11 floors (which isn’t big by any means) and a little north of 40,000 coins. If you want to add me as a friend on Game Center, add me! My username is [take a wild guess:] JuniorTV.

That’s a wrap for this week! If nothing unexpectedly crazy happens next week, I will have 5 topics next Monday. Until then, thanks for reading The Most Wanted List!

Most Wanted: Google+ Invites

20110705-013514.jpg

This week, I’m posting my first Most Wanted List on WordPress! Some things to look out for is a new social networking site (I think you know what I’m talking about.) And that’s it. Why? It’s the Fourth of July weekend, and I decided to take a smaller workload on the list. I’ll have a full 5-topic list next week, but for this week, here’s our sole #1!

1. Google+

Google’s latest social networking effort is the most promising one yet, and it’s right up the alley that everyone has predicted: it’s the anti-Facebook, even though it’s just like it. The introduction of Google+ was very sudden, and everyone wanted to at least try out the newest thing. so many people signed up, that Google had to shut off invites, and for Google to be getting too much demand, that says a lot about interesting Google+ is to consumers. If you want to join, it’s in an early private beta, and invites are currently closed, but definitely keep trying daily and follow Google’s blog and twitter account.

For this week, it’s a wrap! Make sure you come next Monday for a full version of The Most Wanted List!

Most Wanted: Wilfred Sneaks Up to #1

Image

This week, another wave of new shows are set to premiere, and an animated film that I’m very excited about. Also, there’s an award show that is holding it’s inaugural ceremony, and it lands on the list. All that and more on this weeks list, down below!

1. Wilfred – Series Premiere (FX)

FX’s latest comedy is a dark one, but will hopefully provide many laughs when it debuts this week. If you remember, this was my #1 new show to look out for this Summer, and I’m hoping it lives up to that position. Elijah Wood plays a neurotic man on the verge of suicide when an unlikely creature comes and helps out. Want to see what happens? Watch it this week.

2. Cars 2

Pixar’s latest effort is a sequel to what has been referred to as the least-strong of the movie studio’s films, but they are aiming to change all that with an improved storyline and Disney Digital 3D to give it an all-around great experience. Early reviews are strong, and by Friday, it should be one of the best reviewed animated films of the year.

3. Critic’s Choice TV Awards

The inaugural ceremony, hosted by Cat Deeley, was held today and it’s interesting who the winners were. Why “were”? Because I haven’t seen the list of winners or the ceremony whatsoever. ReelzChannel will air the show, but you can watch it early online.

4. Suits – Series Premiere

USA is staying strong as far as having character based legal dramas on their schedule, and Suits is a welcome addition to it’s lineup. Suits is like the lawyer version of White Collar (another USA show) and that outsider isn’t a world-class con man, but a smart, non-bar certified college dropout.

5. The Killing Fallout

What the hell happened? Why wasn’t the murder solved? And why the hell did it end this way?! I demand some answers, and I can’t believe it ended so poorly, basically giving the middle-finger to loyal viewers.

That’s a wrap! Come back next week for an all-new Most Wanted List!

Most Wanted: AMC’s ‘The Killing’ Murders the Top Spot!

Image

This week marks the end of one of the best new shows of the year, and I’m sad to see it go. Fortunately, it’s just been renewed for a second season. Also, a new epic series makes it debut this week and could be the cable version of Terra Nova (hint!). A veteran show that you’ve seen a lot in the last few weeks will make yet another appearance on the list, but trust me, it’s warranted. What should you look out for this week? Find out on the list! Down below:

1. The Killing Season Finale

This fantastic drama mystery has kept me guessing all season, and we’ll hopefully find out who killed Rosie Larson in this week’s season closer. In last night’s episode, the final minutes were shocking, with Linden possibly finding who killed Rosie, and I never would’ve guessed it—**SPOILER ALERT!** it’s Seattle mayoral candidate Darren Richmond. And while you may have guessed that it’s him, this show has so many twists and turns that you can’t be sure, even though the evidence is stacking up against Richmond. We’ll see what happens when The Killing’s amazing first season wraps up this Sunday at 10 on AMC.

2. Falling Skies Series Premiere

TNT’s epic new series is getting great early reviews, and I’m definitely going to give it a shot. The Steven Spielberg-produced action drama takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where aliens have invaded the earth and are practically the dominating population. The armies are wiped out, and it’s up to the residing humans to fight back. I have no idea how they came up with this show without spending a ton of money, but it somehow landed on cable. It’s not a serial in that it wasn’t like FlashForward (fortunately,) and aims to be more like The Walking Dead in terms of being in survival mode. We’ll see if this show flourishes of flops, with the 2 hour Sunday premiere on TNT.

3. Friday Night Lights

After I saw Matt return to the show, I couldn’t think of a better development this far into the season. We’ll see what happens with them this week but going back to Matt I started to think: “What if Landry came back to Jess, since she’s so frustrated with Vince? Now that would be one hell of a plot.

4. The Voice Live Show #2

Last week was a great show, and I can’t imagine who will get eliminated tomorrow night. We’ll see which two (yes, TWO contestants!) will get axed from the show, and who landed in the bottom with them, which could give us a look into who could get eliminated the following week. If I had to pick two, it would be Lily and Xenia. Lily has a voice, but is way too picky and risks it all to hit a note that just can’t be reached; and for Xenia, she just doesn’t have the vocal range to stick around for the rest of the season.

5. Green Lantern

This new superhero flick has been in the works for awhile now (it was on the cover of my first EW issue!) and it’s just now making it to theaters. Ryan Reynolds plays the legendary title character, who gets special abilities from a special ring, and uses it to fight crime. Will it stick with audiences at the box office? We’ll see…

Thats it! Come back next Monday for a brand new edition of the Most Wanted List!

Most Wanted: Covert Affairs Uncovers the Top Spot

Image

This week, we have tons of new summer shows premiering, and a special show is going big time. Also, a hip hop song is making an appearance for the first time. Can you think of what it is? Your answer is on the list, down below:

1. Covert Affairs – Season 2 Premiere

The show with the second-biggest splash of the season (behind TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles) returns with the sexy Piper Perabo doing what she does best: Kick Ass. In the second-season opener, Annie Walker juggles a new case while she tries to find Ben, who disappears at the beginning of the premiere. I saw both Rizzoli and Affairs, and the latter definitely entertained me more.

2. The Voice Live Shows

How long I have waited for this day… Well, since the premiere! Now, we get to decide who stays and who goes. This week, the judges will perform and so will the contestants, but we won’t get the results until next week, but after that, we will have performance shows and results shows leading up to the big finale. Can’t wait? Me either.

3. The Glee Project

A #3 choice on my top 5 shows of the summer (which can be found here) and on this list, this show is sure to at least open huge for Oxygen, and make a splash with Glee fans looking for something to watch in the summer blues. Including me!

4. Lil Wayne – How to Love

Now this is how you build hype for your new album. With Tha Carter IV delayed once again, this song will hopefully keep us patient for Weezy’s latest release. This slow, somber, but powerful song is already a favorite of mine. And if this is just a taste of what we can expect for the new album, then COUNT ME IN!

5. Switched at Birth – Series Premiere

I haven’t watched an ABC Family show since Kyle XY got my attention, then lost my interest after the first season. Now, ABC Family is launching a more realistic high-concept show with a slew of TV actresses from cancelled shows, like Vanessa Marano (Gilmore Girls), and Constance Marie (George Lopez). For some odd reason, I like it. It looks very well done, and it seems so real. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but there might be a quality show on ABC Family(!)

That’s a wrap! Come back next week for an all-new Most Wanted List!
