Just a heads up…

I plan on writing up new grades and reviews based on Sweeps programming and what not heading in the holiday hiatus. I may also hold funeral proceedings for the departed shows. So much pressure!

New series first semester grades (repost from other ‘blog 10/27/05)

Well, since it’s now deep enough in the fall TV season for some series to be showing repeats in the ramp up to November Sweeps, I thought I’d catch you up with my current thoughts on the new series and even just the latest seasons of favorites. I think for now, though, an update of new series will have to do.

Watched log for Tuesday

Got in late from bar, not much on anyways.

 Bones: Girl in the fridge

The normally inscrutable Bones starts to show a softer side in this episode when her former mentor and lover shows up and is to testify in a murder case to dispute her testimony as an expert witness. Decent episode, a bit slower in pace, where they almost immediately find the cause of death, and the rest of the episode is the court case. I find it a bit unrealistic that they would be in trial so quickly though. That’s the TV justice system for you though. One of the sort of interesting backstory bits is the story of Bones’ parents disappearance and her obsession with learning the truth. According to the previews, I think the next episode will be kind of funny, in a trapped-in-a-lab-with-deadly-lung-fungus-on-Christmas kind of way.
