Couldn’t agree more! Newsroom is the best show on TV.
One of the main reasons I started this blog is I wanted a platform to speak passionately and frequently about shows I love. Newsroom and Parenthood are the two that stick out in my mind.
Newsroom is surprisingly polarizing. Some people “hate watch” it and others love watching it. I’m in the latter camp.
I can’t imagine why anyone would hate watch it. Yes, sometimes it’s a little preachy but that doesn’t affect the entertainment value in my opinion. Some people just can’t stand Aaron Sorkin and his perceived ulterior agenda. Personally, I think the guy is the best writer in Hollywood. I could watch The Social Network and a Few Good Men on repeat.
At first, I wasn’t sure I would love the cast of this show. But I can’t see anyone else in any of these parts. Sure, Alison Pill can be irritating, but I actually find her…

A couple of months before I moved to Hawaii, I had the pleasure of meeting Chelsea Gossett. We met through my last job and it was during one of our conversations about shoes and fashion that she revealed she was a jewelry designer. Upon my moving, she asked me to help her with her business and I’ve been working with her since.
Chelsea designs Count Me Healthy bracelets: they are sterling silver bracelets with movable beads. Why movable beads? Because Chelsea realized she more frequently reached her health and nutrition goals if she had a way to track her progress. And instead of using a cumbersome notebook, why not use a stylish bracelet? So she created these bracelets.
And they really are cute. There are a bunch of different types: the Original, Happy & Blessed, Golf Goddess, Bride to Be, and My Bridesmaids are just a few. Each type has a different moveable bead depending on the theme. One of the newer styles is Helping Hearts — with 25% of each bracelet sold goes to the WomenHeart organization.
So while I love the idea of a wearable tracking tool, I also really love how this bracelet looks–particularly when worn stacked. I usually wear 2-3 at a time and it really looks great. In fact, Count Me Healthy offers Sassy Stacks which comes with three bracelets–instant stackability!
The bracelets cost $88 each and are available online at countmehealthyjewelry.com and at select boutiques around the US. And stay tuned – Chelsea has some new styles hitting stores soon!
Let’s get it out of the way: Puck is hot.
Now that we’ve taken care of that…. GLEE IS BACK TOMORROW! Yay! Their four month hiatus was way too long. Not only did I watch old episodes, but I was forced to buy almost all of the Glee songs on iTunes just to get my Glee fix each week. I even DVR’d Oprah last week to see her Glee show (which was awesome by the way.)
Every character on this show is good, but my absolute favorite is Rachel. Lea Michelle can sing. And she’s pretty funny. Not to mention how she killed it on the red carpet during award season. Lea’s got style! My other favorite characters are Quinn (Dianna Argon,) Puck (Mark Salling,) and Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch.) I could watch Sue Sylvester talk for hours on end. Quinn is just the cutest little thing–and her internal struggle is interesting to watch. And, well, you know, Puck is hot, so…. well….yeah.
This upcoming string of episodes has a stellar list of guest stars planned: Neil Patrick Harris(!), Kristin Chenoweth is coming back (hells yeah,) and Idina Menzel of Wicked fame are all lined up. And I simply can’t wait for the All Madonna episode airing April 20. In fact, here’s the TV Guide cover inspired by the Madonna episode… (how cute is Rachel?!?)
I also don’t hate Mr. Shue. I like watching him spar with Sue Sylvester… but I wouldn’t mind it if he stopped rapping for a little while…
