|Well, another 100 recaps, another blog.
New season and plenty to do. Let's see...
returning shows: House, Stargate Universe, Fringe, Smallville, Supernatural, Haven, Human Target (eventually), Brave and the Bold, Venture Brothers.
new shows I'm taking on: The Event, No Ordinary Family.
Human Target got set back two months when Lonestar crashed and burned. That's somewhat of a relief since it means I'm only doing three shows a night until Haven ends, and then only two shows on Fridays. It also means HT will be on Wednesdays, which is my "spare" night with no other shows.
No Ordinary Family is kinda fun. The Event looks to be about as disappointing as Persons Unknown this summer.
Warehouse 13 ended it's season. Christmas episode in... umm, Christmas. It was an okay season. I never found Helena that compelling a character And the vet and the hardware clerk, eh. The general show stuff was okay, though.
Smallville was pretty good with the intro of . And Supernatural was kind of eh.
As always, you want to find out about this stuff, check out the recaps. I'm working on "illustrating" more of them with screencaps, so they're a bit more interesting to read. Fringe and House are still mostly people sitting around, so not much to do there.
Other then that, not much. That tends to keep me kinda busy...

|I am amazed at how much in common our TV tastes are. I am always glad to see your name as editor of a show I like so that I can simply watch and enjoy it, knowing you are doing the heavy lifting.
I am not surprised at Lonestar getting the axe. I managed to watch 20 minutes of the pilot before I deleted it from my DVR.
I am just about at that point with House. I can't tell the episodes apart anymore.
I just finished the pilot of No Ordinary Family and I am optimistic. The actors are likable so I can give the writers some latitude.
I really enjoy the character interplay on Warehouse 13, similar to Eureka. The plots are usually ridiculous, but it doesn't seem to matter.
My favorite police drama currently airing is Flashpoint. Unfortunately, like most cop shows these days, most of their capability to solve crimes relies on technology that always has access to unlimited data on every piece of information that ever existed. In reality, every police department uses different software, or formats their data differently. Not to mention the bureaucratic problems that are inevitable. I call it deflector dish tech. Whatever Captain Picard needed, the deflector dish could be re-configured to solve the problem.

|I wasn't fond of House with the first episode, but the second episode they got back to the basics. House wasn't Cuddy-whipped, they had a medical mystery, they had a medical conflict. They didn't go the route of trying to keep their relationship, which would have been an easy out.
