Spoiler Alert Thursday

Again, apologies for the rather late posting of this.

  • “Dexter” we’ve been enjoying this season a lot. The bad guy isn’t nearly as creepy as Trinity, but who is? The overall tone of the season has been significantly more suspenseful, especially insofar as un-masking Dexter is possible from a number of directions: Deb in the file office, Quinn and Quinn’s informant, and, of course, the bad guy.
  • “The Walking Dead” remains, insofar as the primary characters are concerned, rather uncompelling. There’s no one in the show whose death I’d mourn–except, perhaps, the gang protecting the old people in Atlanta. They don’t seem that bad. I did not like the guy who was digging graves throughout the entire episode and–no doubt–he’ll have dug just enough graves to bury the dead. Good for him. Now he’ll become some sort of prophet. Always a bad idea.
  • “Supernatural” was great. Nothing better than a concept whereby alien abductions are actually cover-ups by fairies to hide their existence and predation upon people. Classic. Not sure why Castiel was in the opening credits, but not in the episode.
  • “Caprica”–I’m disappointed that this will end shortly.

Feel free, of course, to talk about the shows that I don’t watch and wish did not exist (e.g., “30 Rock,” “Glee,” etc).

  1. Just watched the first five episodes of Terriers, which I believe may be this season’s only good new show.

  2. i confess i watched yesterday _Tokyo story_, so sad story, i hated the older children in there so much, those kind of mercantile people are so pretty common, well, not only in Japan, to be fair, to be not able to accomodate their parents for few days! to bring their mourning clothes ready when their mother is still alive!? so so awful
    though poorer Japan feels much more sympathetic and humane
    should watch their old movies more often though, good language practice cz and i felt like kinda dissonance as always, everything sounds in Japanese so trivial and commonplace and the English subtitles add a bit more feeling to the conversation
