TV, Part 9
24 (Fox) -- I <3 Chloe. I also hate her, as she is the most annoying personality EVAR, but that is why I love her. Edgar needed to be treated as he was... will he hold a grudge? Probably not gonna be a plot-point of contention, so whatevs. Is Dina(sp?) dead??? Odds favour YES. But this is 24...
Boston Legal (ABC) -- last new ep before the hiatus for "Grey's Anatomy" (I won't be watching...). The new black lawyer chick came out of nowhere to a role with more airtime than most of the regular cast... wtf? Meh, she's hot and good, so it's ok, I guess. It's still the Spader/Shatner show anyways, the rest is just window dressing (and quite good window dressing at that). Glad the dude fought it... a lot of 'The Practice' in this ep... good version, so thumbs up :-)
Medium (NBC) -- meh. This one didn't do it for me. Still loving the show, but they need to get back to whatever it was in early eps that really had me... bring back the brother, he was hilarious! Less focus on the myraid complexities of her 'talents' and more on good stories/cases/drama would be my preference... listen up TV Gods!!
That 70's Show (Fox) -- been a while... missed some eps... but you can do that with this show and not really loose your place -- unlike say 24 or LOST. Loved the redhead/blonde in-joking between Eric and Donna... I'm very curious how they're gonna move forward plot-wise next season... not that this show needs to be overly plot-focused... Bring back Eric's hot sister!!! (the original role portrayer, please).
TAR (CBS) -- buh-bye and good ridence(sp?) you misserable little fucknut. Gawd, his whiny/bitchy ways were so unwelcome by yours truly. The darlings of reality TV continue to shine... the previews for next week look sooooooo good (but that could just be talented editing).
Blind Justice (ABC) -- here's the ep I thought was gonna be on the previous week with the dead cop/dirty cop angle. Anybody else watching? (It came 3rd of 3 in it's timeslot against SVU(to be expected) and Judging Amy(wtf?)). Swap nights with the new "Eyes" drama... because I'm not sure I want to watch "Eyes", but I'd gladly sit through 3 hours of ABC Wednesday's if it was LOST/Alias/Blind Justice!!!!! Should've been the original set-up, but they feared the L&O/CSI 1-2 knockout (and with good reason, I guess...) -- fucking Gary Sinese. Get off my TV!!
Survivor (CBS) -- Well, my entertaining red-neck is gone. Had to happen. Why can't those fuckers pull off a win. Is the fireman that dominant? Is the hot blonde going topless to distract Bobby John and his boys... and maybe the chica too?!? If so, Survivor needs to move over to HBO (and I need to get HBO!).
Alias (ABC) -- another "Syd's Sister" ep. Meh. She's hot, but she's a clone. The Vaughn story is all that really kept me interested. And the smugness that is just about every character. They do think they are that damn good, don't they! Gotta love teh Abrams.
Apprentice (NBC) -- hottie gets the boot. Because she tried using her feminine wiles one too many times and Carolyn busted her chops for it. George and C must've really lobbied for the team leader to stick around, because I think Trump wanted to give her the boot (he know's she can't beat the other 'older' lady left, so he figures why bother keeping her around when you could keep young/brash/Trump-like and/or young/hot/Trump-wife-like). Black buddy (how bad is it I don't know the names yet :lol:) really stepped up to the plate and hit a home run this week... but I just don't see him having the necessary leadership skills, as presented this week. You can't always do it by yourself. Go read his bio on NBC -- IMPRESSIVE SHITE!!!
The Office (NBC) -- meh. Any other comedy did this well at making me laugh, I'd be singing it's praises. But I've seen this before. And it was funnier the first time around. Can't wait til they burn off the Brit-Com retreads and get to some original scripts... Yes, I'll be watching.
Numb3rs (CBS) -- finally saw the trains ep. AWESOME. Got one on tape somewhere still... will go looking for it later today I think. This show rocks (I considered going the hard-core math route at one time, so I can relate to a lot of the behind the scenes stuff here...)
Joey (NBC) -- who is the best new character? I nominate the landlord/neighbour... hott, cute, funny... and a total unknown(to me) before this show. Joey's agent is a close second, but she's more a "regular guest star" than a core cast memeber. We all knew the split was gonna happen, it was just a matter of when. Look for her and Joey to hook up(either one-shot 'innocent' or full-on regular) by the end of season 2... they're gonna try and pull a Ross/Rachel on us here, I'm betting... just keep it creative, k folks?
Desperate Housewives (ABC) -- It's BACK! Another excellent episode. All the regular pieces of the puzzle played their respective roles to perfection. Loved the hottest housewife stealing the port-o-john... and the neighbourhood slut/skank was spot on in this episode... her character is growing on me(freud?) -- loved Matt(he will always be Matt to me) and the cable/porn moment... in Canada, next week, the episode will be 90 minutes long (something to do with the Juno's airing that night on CTV... meh).
The O.C. (Fox) -- YES! Ryan fights. Marissa is there. The pRon surfaces. Everyone plays there role. This is classic OC (can I even say that yet? -- I think I can). Again, no new ep next week... but they've had quite a run of new eps now(didn't take the long March hiatus like many) -- pre-empted next week for the return of Tru Calling... I can live with that.
Criminal Intent, Cold Case, Las Vegas, West Wing -- maybe next week?
Coming Up: 2 hours of TAR and TC ... Office moves to Tuesdays(between Scrubs and SVU) ... LOST returns!! ... Eyes debuts ... lots o' Basketball on the go ... Baseball just around the corner ... The 902??? ... Wrestlemania! ... whatevs. Party On, Party People!
