I got really nervous today when Entertainment Weekly sent this tweet my way…
EW ‘Lone Star’: Already time to call it quits? http://bit.ly/cMsI9j
…so Lone Star was first the show I tackled on the “Now Playing List” this evening. And the verdict is..
I really liked it! First of all Bob is a cute as a button (and sexy to boot) so I don’t I mind spending an hour with him every week. James Wolk plays Bob beautifully and has me convinced that he is in love with two women and is totally conflicted about his life and that his Dad is an ass who likes pancakes. He was SO happy at his BBQ hanging with his buds and drinking and cooking hot dogs. Then he got all spoofed up with his gorilla keys and his other fancy family and almost got in to big trouble. The suspense is building and I can see myself getting agita every week hoping poor Bob does not get caught! I guess I should be thinking more about his ladies and their feelings, but they seem quite content. At the end of the pilot I was wondering how long this charade can really continue, but I guess he could move to NYC and start all over again.
Net net: If the pilot of Lone Star is hanging out on your DVR, check it out. I don’t want it to get canceled before cute/sexy Bob finds true happiness. (Although this would mean I now have THREE new shows to add to my collection. Sigh.)
