I've just got a few random bits of TV musing to impart today. That's about all I'm feeling inspired to do, really.
The goodness that is Chuck returns tonight with a 3-D episode. Watch as if the fate of the world depends on it. Because it just might.
Friday night's Psych killed me multiple times. It was absolutely histerically funny. But the part I loved best was a reference to Shawn watching The Mentalist. See, in Psych, Shawn is a PI who pretends to be a psychic. In the Mentalist, the PI is a former fake psychic.
Crusoe ended its run Saturday night. I'm going to miss it. It was a pretty decent adventure show with wonderful production values. I mean, that show looked amazing. Of course, I do understand that the ratings were very poor. I'm torn about how I feel about the ending. While part of it was wonderfully just, another part wasn't the ending I had hoped for. Still, I'm very glad I watched the show.
I'll admit I didn't start watching the Super Bowl until the beginning of the second quarter, but I didn't see any impressive or highly original comercials this year. Maybe it would have helped if I wasn't doing laundry and other stuff while it was on.
And somehow, I have to find time to finish my current book as well as watch Chuck and 24 tonight. Considering I have 85 pages to go (not that I'm counting or anything) this will be tough. I may not do the workout I was planning for tonight (just don't let Ryan see this), and I probably won't watch the next episode of West Wing, either. Still, I hope I can get it finished.
Speaking of The West Wing, I am now four episodes into the series. I am finding it highly cliched, over written, and pretensious, just like how I felt with Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. I just don't see the cause for all the praise.
Another thing I don't see the praise for is the original Pink Panther movie. I watched it when it was on TV Saturday. The plot was slow and it wasn't remotely funny. Silly as it was, give me the remake any day of the week.
Okay, so I managed to work in movies and books, too.
