Spoiler Alert Thursday
While it seems like the return to regular programming after the winter sporting event break was just yesterday, it as though we are back to having nothing on TV again–unless you are fan of that golfer who has a lot of sex with ladies who aren’t his wife or like those shows “about” dancing, singing or living on an island. I don’t go for any of that programming.
- Due to the complexities of Canadian broadcasting, I was able to watch this week’s and last week’s episodes of “Bones” during the past six days. The new episode does not play until tonight in the US. Not that it really matters: the show sticks to the script and really isn’t all that good. Unfortunately, it has likely been renewed until Jesus comes back to claim the faithful. I’m not sure why people–myself included–watch this show. Best part: Angel’s hair in the “flashback” episode airing tonight. Worst part: does Bones have emotions or does she not? does she have Asperger’s or does she not? This seems to change from scene to scene. I preferred the rich bug guy’s personality in the “flashback” to any personality he has had since.
- “Fringe.” Not especially good and I’m not sure how Walter feels as though he is responsible for the entirety of the show’s arc given that the bald, pale observers seem to know what is happening. I suppose this is some sort of fate vs. free will thing. Who knows! But what I do know is that the “retro” opening was completely awesome, as was Walter’s hair.
- “Supernatural.” Seemed a bit slow–all this effort to find God only to discover that he doesn’t give a rat’s ass and wants to be left alone. This week’s episode with a demon-hunting Christian militia should be awesome.
- “Human Target.” Sometimes I wish he would just fail at his mission and his “client’s” die. This episode was a case in point: rich British people, especially the females, really annoy me (c.f., that commercial where that lady claims to have invented Windows 7–not that the one with the nasty guy in the shower is any better, of course).
- “Spartacus.” I remain impressed with Batiatus and Lucretia’s talents for being ruthless. Setting up Solonius for the murder of Calavius was Roman politics at its best. While I am happy for Crixus, his fight seemed to resemble the WWF.
