Smallville: Hero, Traveler

Wow. I do not think I’ve ever seen such blatantly clumsy product placement as the Stride gum in this episode. Horrible. Not to mention the Toyota truck that was prominent in one scene. Maybe they needed that truck to pull the trailer full of money given to them by Stride.

How is it that Lex always is getting shot? Why does Detroit look suspiciously like Vancouver? Why is the Smallville Medical Center apparently the only hospital in the entire country? Why do I keep torturing myself with the inane plots on this show?

Smallville: Bizarro (Season Premiere)

Dénouement, thy name is Smallville. Jesus, do you think they could have the climax of the episode at the halfway point? I mean, they’re already halfway there. This show is fucking retarded. I’m not sure why I’m still watching. Also, way to half-assedly introduce Supergirl. Lame.

Mad Men: Long Weekend

Moonlight: No Such Thing as Vampires (Series Premiere)

Well that was sort of, eh. It wasn’t horrible, but it didn’t really stand out. The fact that it’s premise is so similar to Angel and Forever Knight will of course force comparisons by fans of those shows. I guess CBS figures most of its viewers didn’t watch those shows. Having been a fan of Angel, I know I definitely compared them, and unfortunately for this show, Mick St. John is the least interesting character on the cast. It’s your basic procedural, it almost seems like it came out of the random plot generator. I feel like a lot of the new shows this season have such a safe-ness to them, that they’re destined to live a season or 2 until something really original comes along and forces them out. Maybe there are some better stories in this show, and I’ll keep watching to see, but I have been saying that a lot about shows this season.

Grade: C+

Shark: Gangster Movies (Season Premiere)

Downloaded because the football game ran late pushing back the start and cutting off the end.
