Just started watching Man Up.  Got a few chuckles out of the pilot.

Allen Gregory. This was about as bad as I thought it would be. It's just not funny, and Jonah Hill is more annoying than anything. I guess it's nice to have a show not created by MacFarlane, and I prefer it to The Cleveland Show, but that's like saying you prefer Pero to a cup of hot liquid shit.

The last episode of Homeland was pretty intense. The acting on this show really stands out. BUT, why did she cut her hair??? She looks like Anna again. Not quite as creepy, but I was very aware of it and a little distracted. I'll have to get used to it. I just think she looks so much better with longer hair.

I watched the first episode of Once Upon A Time (created and written by one of the main Lost duo of writers.... the two who wrote the important episodes when Darlton didn't.... Kirtsis and Horowitz or something)

It seems pretty good... Hard to base off what obviously was the pilot and story-setter, but I like what I've seen so far.  I hope it sticks.  Apparently it had good ratings...

Interesting that there are two new shows this year (Grimm) about fairy tales.

I've watched 2 episodes of OUAT and the 1 epiosde of Grimm that's aired so far....  I know I don't technically have to "pick one" considering I can (and will) easily watch both, but I have to admit that I like Once Upon A Time MUCH more than Grimm so far.  It just seems more magical and interesting... and isn't overwhelmed with horrible special effects so far.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

So far (one whole episode under our collective belts), Grimm seems like, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer: As A Guy" [not that there's anything wrong with that (and given Greenwalt's presence, not a total surprise) except that without the trademark Whedon humor, it might get pretty tedious after a very short while], while OUAT seems to be - like you said - more 'magical'.  And, given that we've seen that Rumplestiltskin [spoiler for show content as seen thus far, particularly in episode 2]
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
it could get quite interesting indeed!

Thus far, I'll likely continue to watch both.

Oh, and...
Homeland...  why did she cut her hair??? She looks like Anna again. Not quite as creepy, but I was very aware of it and a little distracted. I'll have to get used to it. I just think she looks so much better with longer hair.

Agreed!  'Inara' ;) shouldn't have short hair!

To dispel some of the misconceptions about head injuries you have developed from watching movies and TV, I wrote this: ...Some Information on Head Injury Effects

The pilot episode of Grimm was pretty bad, IMO.  It's a police procedural with fairytale elements starring a cut-rate Brandon Routh (I don't know how that's possible).  Given the pedigree of the people behind it, I'm willing to give it another shot, but OUAT is a much better approach to the whole fairytale thing.

Well, the Person of Interest subplot just got a bit more interesting and shows potential for something bigger. Am I wrong in assuming Mr. Reese is the son of the murdered Elias woman?

Hmm, I guess that's a possibility, but to me the picture of the kid looked like a boy who would more likely grow up to look like Jesus than Ben Linus.

True, but the job was run for someone whose face we didn't see (as far as I can recall)... and even then, I thought it might have been Ben.

Maybe it was really John Locke!!!
