Last week’s Fringe was awesome. I can’t think of anything to say about it that wouldn’t be at least a bit of a spoiler but I can say, about the last several episodes, that I have been rather enjoying Anna Torv’s impersonation of Leonard Nimoy.
I just discovered this past Monday night that Stargate: Universe is back – has been back for weeks! I’ve missed almost the entire season. We haven’t been watching anything on
siffy SyFy for a long while so I hadn’t seen any ads for it and never thought to check and see if it was back on. I’ve always been on the fence as to whether or not I think the show is a total waste of time but it looks like this season might have been better. Now I’m hoping for one of those catch-up marathons the cable channels have once in a while.
Is it just me or are the plots on Chuck getting increasingly forced and implausible? Two CIA agents, one of them the daughter of a professional con artist, get conned out of over 26 thousand dollars by a fake wedding planner? Whom they found on the Internet? Really? It is still a fun show in some ways; I just think the writers could do better.
It looks like we’re heading into TV land’s usual summer drought. Neither Castle nor Harry’s Law were on this week. The last Big Bang Theory was a rerun. (The local CBS channel, which had preempted it for storm coverage did show it later.) Other than those and the other shows mentioned above there’s been very little on lately that interests me. Once in a while there’s something on one of the cable channels besides Drama Queens With Chain Saws (Ax Men) or Drama Queens With Motor Bikes (American Chopper) or I Was Eaten By a Giant Shark (or snake or bear or jellyfish or mysterious monster) and Survived (just about every show on Animal Planet) or Spending Mega-bucks Fixing Up Over-priced Houses for Sale. (over half the shows on HGTV) Oh well… more time for reading, sewing and all that good stuff.
