The State of my TV
So I know it’s been a long time since I’ve updated. I apologize as I’m falling down on my NY’s resolutions stating I would post one blog per weekend. (To be fair, recently I met one big resolution of cleaning out my garage.) But it’s not all my fault, I am not that impressed with TV. Let me discuss my current TV shows now:
The Office: Caught up to the episodes last night. I love The Office but it’s something I can watch later. I’m really enjoying Andy and Erin right now and I got worried when they showed their foster brother. And can I say I’m rooting for Dwight and Isabelle?
Law & Order: Ok, I’m enjoying this one the most, and not just because of my shipping compulsion for the two DAs. I think it’s quality has vastly improved these last few years: the current cast, the writing, and finally becoming bolder with personal relationships. Sadly, now that they moved the show, again, on Monday nights along it’s back to struggling in the ratings. I’m hoping this has more to do with NBC still recovering from the colossal mistake of the Jay Leno show, but only time will tell. I will state if you haven’t watched the episode, Innocence, you are missing the best episode of the year (and one that strays from the typical format of the show).
Chuck: Also on Monday nights, my interest has been reduced to zero. The season started off so promising. Then they introduced Superman as the next Doppelganger in the Chuck/Sarah relationship. It’s startling that we’ve got to through this AGAIN, the Chuck/Sarah/Brett triangle made much more sense and had a lot more layers. Adding in Hannah doesn’t help, though I did like her, but again, it feels like a repeat of the Lou character and this show can do so much better. I’ve watched few episodes and have no desire to tune in again.
CSI: I don’t know if it was my imagination or I’m a masochist, but for some stupid reason I get excited for Greg/Sara again. The idea of Sara/Grissom makes me want to vomit for the rest of my life but maybe I could learn to let it go if she dumped his waddling ass for Greg (only for Greg to dump her ass). I know that won’t happen. There was this weird moment some time ago between them, thus I’ve been watching expectantly for a long time but nothing new. Must have been my imagination.
Survivor: So Russell put one over on Rob. Or one could say, Russell asked Tyson to switch his vote and the nimrod agreed which threw off Rob’s plan. The only good news is it mainly hurt Tyson who I always hated anyway. (Maybe even more than Russell except we’ve seen very little of Tyson).
Lost: They had me all the way up to Charlotte/Sawyer. NO NO NO NO NO. Must every ship I love have to be reduced to nothing? ONe of the main reasons I supported the bomb exploding is that it SHOULD allow for both Daniel and Charlotte to be alive now, and they could have gotten together. Seeing Charlotte and Sawyer together was all kinds of wrong. The good news is the follow up episode featured Richard pretty much the entire time and I can always get back to that.
V: It should start this week, right?
Glee: Can’t wait to April.
In Plain Sight & Criminal Intent: Should both premier on March 31st. Looking quite forward to it.
