Hidden Palms: Pilot (Series Premiere)

Damn  you Kevin Williamson. I’m actually kind of interested in another teen soap. First The Creek and then The O.C., I thought I was done. Well, it’s better than nothing I guess. There’s definitely a lot of the Dawson’s influence on this with a bit of 1st season Desperate Housewives mystery, but unfortunately a fair amount of mediocre acting and overwrought drama. I’ve watched worse, and because there ain’t a lot else on, I’m likely to keep watching. Maybe there’s a chance it will rise above, but it’s unlikely.

Lost: Through the Looking Glass (Season Finale)

What!? I have to wait until February for the next episode?!
Spoiler alert! : That was a sweet flash-forward. Future-Kate was hot. So, the deathpool will be very busy considering how many people bit it, but then again, Mikhail survived again. He’s like the Energizer Bunny, he keeps going and going. Let’s have a moment of silence for the dearly departed Charlie. A lot of heroism going in this episode. Good episode. It’ll be interesting to see who actually comes to rescue them.

Geez. I really have to digest that. I’ll have some more insight in the morning when I’m more awake and less emotional.

What’s in, what’s out

Well, here’s my take on what the upfronts mean to me. What shows I’m excited about, what shows I’m sorry to see leave, and which I’m glad are gone.

See the list of what’s canceled, staying, new and what’s moving after the break.
