I had a good laugh over the shows and movies my dear TiVo has suggested I should watch. It clearly knows how much I love crime procedurals because there is a glut of CSI whatevers in the list. There is a lot of sci-fi in the mix as well, which makes me terribly happy, because you know I'm really a 12-year-old boy when it comes to all things sci-fi. (Except for the new Battlestar Galactica. I'm not naysaying it - I just have never watched it, but people I know and trust love the show, so perhaps I should give it a shot sometime.)
I'm disappointed TiVo didn't recommend any cooking or DIY shows being that I record several of them, nor did it suggest any good non-fiction shows like Modern Marvels or anything horror or macabre. I mean, you're talking to a girl who has WishLists based on the words "autopsy" and "mummy." Give me some good creepy shows, please! Thank you.
Following are some of TiVo's more humorous suggestions followed by their respective plot synopses:
- Kolchak: The Night Stalker: "Horror in the Heights" - A trail of strange murders leads Kolchak to an elderly Hindu man who reveals an evil spirit is roaming Chicago.
- The Keeper: An exotic dancer enters into a dangerous battle of wills with the mentally unhinged lawman who kidnapped her.
- Paris Sonata: A Mandarin drama. (Sorry, I couldn't find a link to anything about the show.)
- Bakekang: A woman with a hideous face encourages her daughter to become an actress. (According to Wikipedia, this is a new Filipino telenovela. The title is pronounced "bah-keh-KAHNG," not "bake-kong." Of course, now I'll be saying it like the opening of Chaka Khan's "I Feel For You," because I roll like that. "Bakekang. Bakekang. Bakekang Bakekang. Bakekang Bakekang, let me rock you Bakekang...") I am a bad Asian, I know.
Tell me, dear readers, what does your TiVo want you to watch? I'm curious.
