Okay, where was I?
Lost: This show jumped the shark when they blew the hatch, but my husband still makes me watch it. I miss the polar bear and the freaky black cloud, and they’ve diluted the story by having way too many characters now.
Shark: (I forget what night this is on.) It’s okay. The husband likes it more than I do, and I find the daughter annoying as hell.
Survivor: They should never have messed with the original formula. I’m still addicted, but I don’t enjoy it as much. This season sucks so far. When you give one team everything from toilet paper to a couch and the other doesn’t even have water, that’s too much manipulation by the producers. And I don’t like the hidden immunity idol, either.
CSI: More Warrick, less Catherine. More Gil and Sara secret lust.
NUMB3RS: A favorite. I’m not sure how much of it is quality writing and how much is my 16-year unrequited love affair with Rob Morrow, but I love the show. I do wish Larry hadn’t taken a hiatus in space in order to play a stupid role in this stupid season of 24.
(I’m sorry, but the 24 writers totally sold Curtis’s characterization down the river for a dumb, manipulated moment of mediocre drama and, as a longtime viewer, I resent that.)
What else do I watch?…
Oh, Men in Trees: I resisted this one at first because it seemed like a rip-off of Northern Exposure (see above infatuation with Rob Morrow) and it is…but maybe that’s why I like it. I AM a little turned off by the Marin/Jack/Lynn thing. I have two episodes taped, so I haven’t met Cash yet. I have to say, though, that Plow Guy is the most charismatic character on the show.
Show I used to love but am now EH about: The Shield.
Shows I mourn in a big way: Deadwood and Firefly.
