Television Tuesday

Spent some time on the internet catching up with shows this past week…

Terminator : The Sarah Conner Chronicles

I had only seen the first three episodes of the first half of the season due to having a class when it was on… So when I saw that the it was returning last Friday I figured it was time to catch up. I was really glad to see that Fox had almost the whole season available on line for watching. over the course of a day I managed to watch all the episodes that I had missed and get all caught up.

I think that this might be one of the most underrated geek shows on television right now. Dont get me wrong, I love the big sweeping multi-leveled stories of shows like Lost and Fringe, but it is really cool to have a show that is just plain about action and adventure… I really like the story line that they have developed with Riley and cant wait to see where they are going with it. I have heard internet gossip that one of the females dies by the end of the season, I am really hoping it is the chick from Derek’s past (future what ever it is…) I can never really remember what her name is. All I know is that I can not stand here. She ranks right up there with Gaeta on BSG for charecters I think should be capped mob style… (at least Gaeta got the airlock…).

Fringe

I really dont know where I stand with this show. Some of the episodes are really good and some I can barely stand to watch the whole thing… I like the cast and the roles that they play, I just wish that the story writting was a little more consistent…

XIII

The second part of this miniseries was on… and I fell asleep before it even started… Now I have to wait to see if they replay it sometime soon.

Dollhouse

Watched this one online last night. It wasnt bad for a first episode. At the same time as much as I liked it I just dont see this show lasting that long. It is on friday night, which is known for being a dead zone for TV shows. I really liked seeing Faith back in action (yeah I dont remember her real name…). The whole thing with naked guy watching the yearbook video at the end of the episode was a little creepy. I just hope that they have some kind of contigency plan to wrap up the story but the end of the year and give it some closure if the show does die.
Battlestar Galactica

What?? That’s it the Mutiny story line is gone? no follow up what so ever? It was nice to see the apollo and the president dealing with the after shock of the government being wiped out. I also like that they finally brought the rest of the cylons back into the story.

Starbuck should have put a slug in him…

BattleStar Galactica – As much as I am loving BSG right now, I was a little let down in the episode Friday night. After the whiz bang fast pace of the previous week I think that the slowed this episode down way to far. I don’t think that a mutiny would really end that easily. Those people knew that they had gone way past the point of no return and thus I think that they would have fought to the bitter end.

I really wanted to see Gaeta and Zarek go down in a hail of bullets. The fact that they just shrugged their shoulders and said “Oh guess ya got us…” was just kind of a let down.

Supernatural – I love Sam and Dean, I think that the stories since season break have been good. Having said that I really really want them to get back to stories that move the over all myths ahead. I really liked the Siren story though.

XIII – ok. I really liked this show. (miniseries) but someone please tell me when Part 2 is on! I love me some spy thrillers and this ranks right up there with the best of them. I think that Dorf plays the role perfect and Val Kilmer plays the big bad to a T, I really wish he would do more stuff…

Heroes – Seriously I think this show is really taking off again. I love the old school Uncanny X-Men feel. Yes every story that has been told so far on this show has been a retread of a comic story, but then again correct me if I am wrong but aren’t all comics just retreads of themselves at this point? When was the last time you read something witty and new! I am liking that they have turned all the powers into fugitives who are being hunted by their own.

Ok… Red needs breakfast, I ll try to write as I watch this week…
