A Young Doctor's Notebook

A YOUNG DOCTOR’S NOTEBOOK
Wednesdays, 10pm, Ovation

Captive audience: Fans of dark comedy and gallows humor, fanboys and geek girls who would get moist over the sight of Don Draper and Harry Potter in the same space.

Moment of truth: Leave it to the British to cast Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe together in this four-part series, based on stories from Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov, filled with graphic sight gags and mercilessly black humor. It’s set in early 20th-century Moscow; Hamm’s sullen physician takes a trip back in time to visit his younger self (Radcliffe), when he was the resident doctor of a remote Russian village. This is definitely not for the squeamish—blood and limbs are literally tossed around for comic effect—but it reminds us how doctors can face pain themselves while they’re ridding others of it.

Emmy or phlegmmy: Emmy.


REAL HUSBANDS OF HOLLYWOOD
Tuesdays, 10pm, BET

Captive audience: Reality-show geeks, BET watchers, people who know all of Kevin Hart’s routines by heart.

Moment of truth: Kevin Hart and his gang of “mitches” return for a second season of hyper-hilarious, reality-show satire. And now that that weak link Robin Thicke isn’t around since he’s making pop-star moves and failing to prove to everyone that he didn’t rip off Marvin Gaye, the show is better than ever. Rapper Nelly joins the crew full-time this season, successfully blending into the spiteful, ego-tripping silliness Hart and his famous frenemies engage in. Even if you have no idea who Hart or any of these B/C-listers are, you should still watch if you have a thing for laughing hysterically.

Emmy or phlegmmy: Emmy.


TROPHY WIFE
Tuesdays, 9:30pm, ABC

Captive audience: People who actually get along with their exes, folks who are fed the fuck up with Modern Family.

Moment of truth: The reaction this new sitcom has gotten from audiences and critics is amusing me more than the show itself. Apparently, people are surprised that star/producer Malin Akerman’s title character isn’t so much a brain-dead bride, but a daffy gal trying to fit into an already-cluttered family, which includes Bradley Whitford as her randy hubby and Marcia Gay Harden and former SNL castmember Michaela Watkins (who I’m sure ad-libs all her lines) as his disapproving exes. A good cast, a funny premise and the kids aren’t annoying—hell, no wonder people are shocked they like this.

Emmy or phlegmmy: Emmy.

“Message: Reading Jim Kulzer article about a spell caster namely Odumodu was, i will say the best that ever happen to me this year based on the fact that i had a lot problem that i was trying to over come.I had problems at home which affected my work greatly. I was now always in a cross fire with my boss.I really don't want to tell story here so i guess i would just go strange to the point on what i have to say.My wife wanted out of our marriage for no just reason.We were married for four year and i think we were happy though we had no kids, it was her idea not to have any cos she wasn't ready to be a mom yet and i was okay with it i mean i didn't like the idea but i went along with it just to please her.It was always like that i mean she always get what she wants.All i wanted was to see her happy i could never do anything that will make her so unhappy.This was all i did wrong that is make her have it her way all the time. I mean that was the reason she gave during our therapy session.”

“An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My
name is Micheal smith i live in Australia,and I`m happily married to a
lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my
family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took
the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with
me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house
and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my
possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and
she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see
me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old
friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so
she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell
caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in
spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow h”

I mean that was the reason she gave during our therapy session.She wanted out of the marriage cos i was to nice. From what she said, i was the kind of man ever woman will die for but she wanted a real man to enforce his will no her meaning was i was to week a man for her.And that was the least of therapy session we had cos like she said we where wasting our life together and no amount of therapy was going to get us back together.I was a total mess thinking of how i was being dumped based on how much i loved my wife and how good i treated her,I really didn't know if she was ungrateful or just confused about what she wanted that is mid-life crisis but the bottom line is that she left me and who knows maybe for another man.I was still in love with her, she was the love of my life and i still wanted her to come back that was when i saw Eva-Yolanda article on Odumodu.When i contacted him he made me known that i will have to go through all the spell casting process.Like he said most people are too scared cos of trust issues.I had trust issues, but getting my wife back was my ulterior motive and from my experience with Odumodu i can tell you he is 100% truthful and honest with his customer.I was asked to get some material to prepare the spell and after which he sent me a package contain the spell and the rest just happen the way it was suppose to happen i got my wife back and she was my wife back again i mean she was not that woman who wanted a hard man she was woman i fell in love with who loved me cos i am me.If you want help or fell he can help contact him with his email address drodumoduspellcaster@gmail.com.....
