Okay, I just checked out a reallllly good show on ABCFamily (Ripley would be proud) called KYLE XY starring Matt Dallas. The show sure knew how to hook THIS GAY GUY by starting things out with hottie Dallas wandering nude and confused in a forest. Is Kyle a clone? Is Kyle an alien? Is Kyle a computer? Is Kyle my next boyfriend??? It's all interesting, if not a little lacking on the acting (but I can overlook this on a network like ABCFamily. In fact, I was surprised the show revealed as much as it DID). I just finished episode 3 tonight, and I have to say: HOOKED!........I also caught up on my ENTOURAGE fix tonight by watching Episodes 3, 4 and 5. It's ironic that in the series, Vince's movie AQUAMAN just beat out the opening weekend gross of SPIDER-MAN (AM's 116-mill to S-M's 115-mill) to become the most successful film of all time -- just as PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'sCHEST just opened at 132 million last weekend (blowing the fictional AQUAMAN out of the water!!!). But anyway, ENTOURAGE has become excellent comfort television for me. This show has that "something special" where you root for these guys (even Ari) and become totally engrossed in Vince's rise to the top (and eventual fall?).....and WOW..just 2 more days until season 3 of PROJECT RUNWAY (I'm sure Julie is jumping up and down right now reading this).....and still to watch this summer: I am going to give Sci-Fi's EUREKA and HGTV's DESIGN STAR chances to make a fan out of me. ...OH, and AMERICA'S GOT TALENT on NBC has become a great summertime TV escape.
