I read this this morning and it kinda shocked me: "NBC giving a full-season pickup to its fantasy-mystery drama series Surface."
I was sure this show was getting the axe. I stopped watching 10 minutes in to episode 2 and never looked back. I had high hopes for it but was utterly disappointed. So while I'm at it, here's some other musing on the current TV slate...
Invasion - I went to a panel and saw the first episode in San Diego. It was some of the worst writing and acting I'd ever seen. I do not know how this show get by. I continue to laugh at the ads.
Threshold - Gave up after two episodes.
My Name Is Earl - A new favorite. Hillbilly humor with heart.
Prison Break - I'm a loyal viewer. You have to suspend reality a bit while you watch it but it keeps you on the edge of your seat.
How I Met Your Mother - Fun stuff. Doogie rocks!
Rome - Really enjoying this. It just keeps getting better ever week.
Extras - Wasn't too into it but kept watching as Ricky Gervais cracks me up. This last ep with Sam Jackson was hilarious though. I'll keep watching.
Medium - This is Mutsumi's show and Patricia Arquette should not have won the Emmy, but season two has actually been a vast improvement over season one.
Law and Order - I miss Jerry Orbach, but Dennis Farina's doing a good job. My least favorite of the three L&O series, but it's the original and still solid so it continues to be a must watch for me.
L&O: Criminal Intent - Detective Goran is one of my favorite TV characters ever, so when D'Onoforio went on break I didn't think I'd keep watching, but Chris Noth and Annabelle Sciorra are doing a great job.
L&O: SVU - Moving a bit away from the actual crimes and focusing more of the characters these last few eps, but the acting is just so damn good!
Desperate Housewives - Still enjoying the twists and turns on this one. I continue to hate Edie and Bree is better than ever.
Grey's Anatomy - Fell in love with this the first season and it just gets better IMO.
Curb Your Enthusiasm - This season's episodes have been some of the funniest yet. Larry David kills.
CSI - Haven't watched CSI since season one (except for the QT ep) but I've enjoyed what I've seen so far.
Boston Legal - I miss some of the old cast members but David E, Kelley still keeps this fun.
And then there are my MTV/VH1 addictions, Breaking Bonaduce, Laguna Beach, Sweet Sixteen and Best Week Ever. You can laugh but you know you're watching too!
