I lost interest in Hawaii 5-0 when they reveal Alex Mack as a traitor working with The Crow.

But he is off solving crime on Hawaii Five-o

Aha! So, I'm not the only one watching.

It's worth it just for the occasional flying tackle into the side of a dumpster. :D

Once they start karate kicking the bad guy into the trunk of a car (ala Dolemite), then call me.

That must be the "secret world of Alex Mack" then, eh?
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

Dexter kicked ASS tonight! It was probably the best show in a LONG time. If you get Showtime, seriously... check it out.

Think I'm done with Grimm after watching its second episode and finding it just as lifeless and uninteresting as the first.

I am about to watch it, pretty much expecting to come to the same conclusion.

I'm going to give it another couple weeks.  There's still no indication of how much it'll be 'fish out of water cop' [as it is now] and Buffy-esque 'chosen one' stuff as the Aunt's behavior especially in the first episode suggested.  From the Aunt's martial arts and weapons training, and her 'Vampyre' book - er, journal - I still expect it'll be more of a Buffy-as-a-guy show as it continues.  [I guess it depends on how much input Greenwalt had in it's 'creation/sustained direction'.]  But if it doesn't start indicating something OTHER than a police procedural 'with a twist' soon, it won't have the chance to become that, as it'll be cancelled first.


In a related note, I'm close to stopping watching 'Once Upon A Time'.  There's just too little going on... or rather, there's a lot going on, very little of which seems worth my time.


In an UNrelated note, the 'real-life/police/war/subversive-/invasive-whatever' of 'Homeland' is beginning to outweigh my enjoyment of watching Morena Baccarin, and I may quit watching it.  There, too, there's very little happening to take up so much of my time and concentration.


Related to that, I'm still on the fence about continuing 'Person of Interest'.  There's been seven episodes, and little indication that they'll ever explore anything bigger than the Bill Bixby/Hulk 'person in crisis of the week' show.  And not having a 'bigger picture' bores me to tears (well, 'bores me to change channels'  ;) ).
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

I may stick it out a few more weeks... especially now that the aunt is dead.  She was the worst.  I cringed every time she spoke.

unless you managed to catch the first five Treehouse Of Horrors in syndication on the week before Halloween and realize exactly how far the Simpsons have fallen.

It saddens me every week when I watch the new Simpsons and Family Guy and feel that maybe it is really time to end both of them. I still enjoy them for the most part, but they both used to be brilliant...now....eh not so much. :-[

You know how far the Simpsons has fallen? it's fallen so far that even I could write it these days.

i maintain the fact that i enjoy both of those shows currently and have seen them in their entirety. they don't fall, they just change over time.

I'd give Grimm its initial order of 9 episodes. If it doesn't pick up by then, then I say dump it. But I really hope it succeeds. The show's crew members are so much nicer to the extras here in Portland as opposed to the Leverage crew. Plus, I just want a show set in Portland to succeed.
