Get Ready To Laugh! Raising Hope Season One DVD Out 9/20
Please tell me that you have heard of this show...
It comes on after Glee and I have to tell you, it is HILARIOUS!!!!
Marc and I watched it the first night it came on and we tried to watch it every single week.
It was one of our "must see" shows. We would literally crack up laughing for the entire show.
Long story short, Jimmy (the son, bottom guy in the DVD cover) has a one night hook up with this chic and the next morning, they see her on the news WANTED FOR MURDER. While in jail, she contacts Jimmy to let him know she is pregnant and he is the father. He ends up getting her and names her "Hope," hence the name of the show!
The series shows how he struggles with raising a daughter, while he is still just a kid himself.
While dealing with being a first time dad, he is lucky enough to have the help of his parents, as he still lives at home. You can not beat watching Martha Plimpton and Garret Dillahunt as the grandparents of Hope! They are just too funny!!!! Oh, if you really want a laugh, you add in Maw-Maw, Cloris Leachman! Now that is for a crazy and hysterical cast!!!
As soon as we watched the episode where they try to have a family photo shoot, I immediately thought of my family and I laughed so hard... Even having to call my dad and tell him about it... Luckily for me, he had seen parts of that episode, so he knew just what I meant!!!
Also, just to remind you all..
Season Two starts tonight, on FOX!
Make sure to watch, as it is bound to be great!!!!
Just one more reason to laugh:
The mom of "Hope" wanted to name her "Princess Beyonce!"
In kicking off the arrival of Season One on DVD, Fox listed a few other "unusual" names for us to think about...
Princess Beyonce is a pretty great name, but we can see why the family changed her name to Hope. We love unusual and fantastical names…from Apple to Pilot Inspektor, here are our top 10 unusual celebrity baby names complete with origin, background and meanings!
With siblings, Dweezil, Ahmet and Diva, you know father Frank Zappa had out-of-this-world expectations for his daughter. This original name means “one that orbits the moon”.
Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf were inspired by the Grandaddy single, “He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s The Pilot” enough to name their song after the tune.
Sylvester Stallone gave his son this name that alludes to and mystical forces and wisdom, and must have fueled Sage’s creative side as he is an actor, producer, writer and director.
Paula Yates and Bob Geldof named their daughter after Bob’s aunt Fifi and Paula wanted a “belle” in the family. Her siblings, Little Pixie, Peaches Honeyblossom and Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily all enjoy just as exciting given names.
Comedian Penn Jillette named his daughter after the beverage Moxie, and CrimeFighter is derived from a line from one of his books. The legacy will live on!
Gweyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin decided to name their daughter after a fruit because of the inherent sweetness, cleanliness and the lovely images the word conjures up in their minds.
Daughter of The Clash front man, Joe Strummer, Jazz is a proud feminist who loves crafting and was recently featured in Bust Magazine!
Petal Blossom Rainbow
Jamie Oliver and Jools kept the trend going after naming their first two daughters Poppy Honey and Daisy Boo. Petal fits in with the floral themes; Blossom is “fresh”, while Rainbow is truly a “symbol of hope”.
An heir to the Jackson kingdom, Jermaine’s youngest son will certainly be held in illustrious pop culture regard.
