Barbeque with Bobby Flay: Extreme BBQ

Skating With Celebrities: Episode 4

Well, Kristy and Lloyd had a very strong program, being first out. Jillian and John also had a good performance. Dave and Nancy’s program though, was kind of boring. Bruce and Tai were OK, and it was definitely their best performance yet. So, Dave and Nancy were eliminated.
In other skating related news, I saw Tonya Harding in a promo for something, and she looks nas-ty! Whiskey! Tango! (That’s white-trash for y’all not in the know)

24: Day 5: 1:00PM-2:00PM

I love how in the middle of a crisis, everyone still is also dealing with personal issues, like Lynne’s drug-addict sister and the Jack-Audrey-Diane love-no-love triangle. There’s always another crisis just around the corner.

Battlestar Galactica: Resurrection Ship

It is back, baby! This was a great episode. We find out what the mysterious ship is that the Cylon fleet is guarding, it’s the so-called “Resurrection” which allows the Cylon consciousnesses to be re-born in new bodies. At least this is according to batteredSix, who Gaius has be hanging with. Also, both Adama and Admiral Cain giving orders to eliminate the other. Yeah! Awesome. Yep, I’m a total fanboy.

I will have more to say about this when I post my reviews of the new midseason shows.
