Soon, this will be all there is

As Logan once said, "Summer's almost here, and we won't see each other at all." He was talking about some chick, I think, but I'm talking about my favorite shows. Soon they will all be gone for the summer. I would probably be making my way towards a catatonic state of depression a la Buffy in "The Weight of the World," were it not for the continuing glories of movies on TV.

A Time To Kill (5PM, TNT): One of our first introductions to Matthew McConaughey, Sexiest Man Alive 2006. I've decided whenever I say his name from now on I'm going to insert that phrase quickly afterward like the disclaimers at the end of sweepstakes commercials. I don't think it's going to annoy people at all.

Major League (5PM, Comedy Central): Charlie Sheen before he got creepy. I'm coming to realize that "__________ before he got creepy" should just be one of my default movie descriptions.

Bridget Jones' Diary (6PM, Bravo): Singletons rejoice! There be hot, incompetent man-fighting here, along with a truly awesome reindeer jumper. Plus, see Baltar before he became Baltar.

Ever After (8PM, ABC Family): Sentimental girl-power Cinderella retelling with a pre-Heist and M:I II Dougray Scott. I've probably seen this movie five times. I'm such a frakkin' girl sometimes.

The Princess Bride (8:15PM, AMC): Never go against the Sicilian... There is a shortage of perfect... You killed my... Ack! I can't decide. Most quotable movie ever.

Super Trooper (9PM, Comedy Central): I should probably watch this movie at some point, if only because a friend of mine quotes it often. It would be nice to know what the heck he's talking about. For once.

The Emperor's New Groove (9PM, ABC): To quote, "David Spade is perfectly cast as the voice of Kuzco, an arrogant emperor who is turned into a llama by his vengeful advisor." I wonder if Spade was worried about typecasting after this. Not too many emperor-turned-llama roles out there.

I own The Princess Bride on DVD, but even so, there's a serious chance that I'll end up watching it on TV. Why does that always happen?
