Dear TV  
I haven't had a chance to see House, or Castle, either flavor of NCIS, The Good Wife or the Forgotten. No, nor Glee or Cougar Town, not even Criminal Minds. I did see Eastwick. I didn't love it, but if anyone intends to edit this show to only the scens in which Paul Gross appears, I would be on for that. Actually, I would be perfectly happy with the audio. It's not that he's not good looking, but he's a good example of voices that could make me happy reading the phone book.

Tonight, I will try to catch up on what I've already missed this week, and, of course, there is Show. There is Shirtless!Sam, so there may be a distinct lack of coherence from this location thereafter. As per usual.

On Friday there is Dollhouse, on Saturday, there appears to be nothing at all on television. Can't they break up the 7PM Thursday slot a little?

Anyone have suggestions for what I should be watching, or pass on entirely?

We watched Eastwick and quite honestly, I thought that Gross was playing John Barrowman playing Captain Jack Harkness. 8-) Not that there's anything wrong with that. He was enjoying himself and I'm all for that.

I don't think we'll be watching it in the future, but there wasn't anything else on since Himself flat out refuses to watch Dancing with the Stars, and we already watched Leverage and ee! on leverage - the Lost Heir job. *Clutches Sophie.* I'm really cranky with Nate, though I'm hoping that he's not as sanguine about Tara as he seems and the comment about the kids not accepting step mom? That was right on. Jeri seems to be having fun, though.

if anyone intends to edit this show to only the scens in which Paul Gross appears

Dude, fanvids. I'm just saying. By six episodes into the season someone will cut Eastwick into "Sympathy for the Devil" or Voltaire's "When You're Evil". all we have to do is find it. I'm still looking for the one for Brimstone.

Flashforward is tonight, if I remember to turn on the tv before Impala-time. the trailers look interesting enough to give it one, maybe two hours of my life.

You'll let me know when they're available, ok? I don't think it will make a whole season.

*handwaves Jeri* If Nate and Sophie are the parents, is Eliiot the big brother?

Of course he is
Who but the big brother could get away with "I don't care what mom and dad say, if you get in trouble, you're on your own. I really really mean it. Really. I am not gonna help you. Not."

and then come to the rescue anyway and claim it was for someone else.

Isn't that what big brothers are supposed to do?

Re: Of course he is
Yes, and I wish I had one.

When you watch Criminal Minds, I put to you one thing: They did go there. Yes, right there where you think they can't possibly be going because it's prime time TV ferfuckssake, but yes, they totally did.

Enjoy!

Eeee! They did? Really?

*bumps it up on the list*

I will get back to you.

Oh, holy shit. Not particularly subtle about it either. Not answering Jack when he asked if he was okay. Oh, man.

I KNOW, RIGHT?!

He is so going to have to cowboy up and tell his team about it though, because every single thing Foyette did while he had Hotch prisoner MUST go into the profile if they're going to catch him. And Hotch is good enough to know that for damn sure.

Personally, I think that they're steering him into the same corner where they broke Gideon, and lost Elle -- but I'm hoping, oh so very much hoping, that Hotch is the one who, when given Foyette at the end of his sights, and a clear chance to murder the man, and betray himself, will find a way to think better of it.

But I think they're going to grind him to the bone doing it first.

I. Love. My. Show!!!

I wonder if Emily doesn't already know. She strikes me as a chart reader and when she asked if she could stay with him, I thought she might.

Poor Hotch. Love Garcia.

That's the thing though -- I don't think the ER docs caught it. Let's look at what they saw: a John Doe brought in with nine stab wounds, in shock, and probably slipping away quickly. They aren't going to do a SA exam, especially on a male. They aren't even going to think about it, and if he doesn't say anything to them, it'll most likely not even occur to the doctors that it could have happened.

Now a woman, they'd check. A man, not so much.

Sad to say, it's usually the coroner, not the ER doc, who catches that kind of trauma without prior notification to look for it.

Someone cleaned him up and got him in a gown. I can't even conceptualize how that would be missed, although I will grant lifesaving and lots of blood all over. I wouldn't think a doctor would catch it either, but a nurse or an orderly.

Ninja Warrior is the best show on tv in my opinion. (On G4, on infinite reruns from Japanese television. Makoto Nagano is so dreamy ...)
beadslut: Idiotsbeadslut on September 24th, 2009 04:04 pm (UTC)
Better than Show? It cannot be so!

Not so much with the pretty but it has more swinging obstacles and an equal amount of flailing and manpain. Just less emotional and more physical.

I love Ninja Warrior. Wipeout plays the idea for laughs, but the Jpanese take this seriously.

Oh, one of those shows. A Japanese version of American Gladiators?
Vanilla  ... Spiked with Slivovitz: nothing to sayjenna_thorn on September 24th, 2009 06:20 pm (UTC)
Without the cheese factor. Okay, granted sometimes the obstacles courses are a little gimmicky, but there's less mugging on the part of the contestants so it's less overt silliness and more of an actual trial of skill and strength.
Mollpeartreemollpeartree on September 24th, 2009 06:37 pm (UTC)
Admittedly it's a different kind of thing than a drama for sure. But it might be the most consistently perfect at what it does.

I've never seen American Gladiator, but I'm guessing one major difference might be, it's okay with Ninja Warrior if nobody ever wins. Contestants are competing with the course rather than each other, and the course is well-nigh impossible, and constantly changing as people train themselves for specific obstacles from season to season.

House was awesome, as long as a) you're not watching for House/Wilson interaction (there was one telephonic scene) and b) you're not looking for anything close to reality in terms of the way psychiatric facilities are actually run.

Castle was fun. That's all Castle ever is, is fun, but it was well-done fun.

NCIS was meh. It was obviously a let's-catch-the-newbies-up-on-who-these-people-are episode, and it was all about rescuing Da Girl.

Also meh on NCIS:LA. I guess they decided they couldn't kill off the most interesting character from the pilot, but he shoulda been ded. And both of them were low on characterization and high on idiot plot.

I don't actually know why I watch House anymore, since Kuttner's gone, I am not watching for the slash, and I don't expect any reality in most of its plots or situations. All I know is, I feel sad when I miss it.

Castle is fun. That's why I like it. I have enough shows with over arcing angst and thinky stuff. I watch it for the fun and the pretty and the banter. I love Castle's relationship with his daughter _so_ much.

NCIS is a don't miss for me. I love Abyy and Ducky too much to stop watching. NCIS Lite left me cold in the introductory episode. I didn't think that would change.

Looks like my free time has been sucked. Good thing I can cable while I watch.
