i watched the season premiere of season 1's lost...i like dom monaghan and i enjoyed the chubby guy...but the rest of the characters...meh. and the plots seem to stretch on forever... i did catch about 10 minutes of an episode the other day...the one with the chubby guy running through the airport trying to get on the plane... i was in stitches.
only thing i'm really watching closely this season is bones, and that's mostly because i'm on angel detox (so much better than buffy--damn wb!). david boreanaz (angel) is doing really good on that show. the ensemble cast works really well together. best scene yet is the restaurant scene where the squints pile in the booth surrounding db and they are all discussing a particularly grotesque corpse by the name of nestor in the 3rd episode that resembles jasmine's maggot face crossed with the inca mummy girl of jossverse fame. the head falling off that thing made me want to puke!
::view of nestor hanging up in a tree with birds pecking at him::
::tempe catches nestor's head when it falls off the body::
...line about needing a bag. (?)
::the body falls::
"we're going to need a bigger bag."
yeah, definitely amused with bones right now.
james marsters (spike) is playing professor milton fine a.k.a. brainiac on smallville this season. i tuned in (i watch a lot of abc family reruns of the show) for a current episode last week, though james wasn't in that episode...
yeah, i agree, tv is doing a better job at telling stories than movies are today. check out angel: the series for proof of that. it's totally theatrical and there's some amazing storylines there... the show had the habit of season long arcs (season 4 hardly has any filler episodes at all) and series long stuff that got brought up again and again (the shanshu prophecy, which still hasn't been resolved, and we got introduced to it in the first season)...
ok, i'll shut off my love for btvs/ats... but damn, are they good.
lost moves a little too slowly for my taste...the hours seem longer somehow than a lot of other shows. and they have so many characters that it's not a couple of characters in a tight group that you spend the whole time with. it's like the show goes off on different characters. and there seems to be a lot of finding wreckage scenes. without a doubt the most enertaining thing i've seen of the show was the chubby guy running through the airport trying to catch the plane--that's definitely my kind of humor.
hmm...what else is on tv of late...???
