Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
See it in color!
Also enjoyed Reaper premiere. Anyone else catch it?
Now, as if you didn't have enough devices for procrastination at your disposal, here's another:
I've watched WKRP episodes, a couple of MST3Ks, and the Reaper premiere's up there, too, in case you missed it. I wonder how long that site can stay up there...
On Private Practice (yes, I'm watching it, stop judging and focus on the following question) the lady says what a catch she is because she does the NYT crossword in pen.
Who does a crossword in pencil? This is first day crossword puzzle stuff here. Nobody does a crossword in pencil. You have to absolutely know the answer before putting the letters in the boxes. It's a level of commitment and confidence that transcends anything else. Really? A crossword in pencil? That's just downright cheating.
Now, Pushing Daisies might only do a season, or two seasons. Could follow the Friday Night Lights path. But the pessimism about the show's future after so many people liked the first episode just seems a bit much to me.
As for Pushing Daisies, didn't watch it. 7 is too early for it, I'll never actually watch it, it should replace Private Practice at 8, then there would actually be something in that time slot worth watching.
I believe it operates on a different ethereal plane.
I loved the show. The characters, the set, and the whole tempo of the show was refreshing. I'm not necessarily pessimistic about how it will keep it up, but I am interested to see how they are going to keep it going past the first season. JTrichey mentioned the European feel to the show, and this would work with the amount of seasons. Don't most European shows run for 2-4 seasons and then they are done? This would assure a high quality show from start to finish...sometimes we Americans just don't know when to let a show go.
Why won't that show die? I want it to so badly.
I'm out of town for two weeks so I'll have to watch Pushing Daisies when I get back, but all these positive reviews are getting me excited.
I think that was my subconscious telling me that I didn't like it.
And I didn't.
I'm sorry you didn't like Chuck, Jon. I've really enjoyed the first two episodes. It's the quintessence of light-hearted, escapist fun, with the Chuck and Sarah characters being very likeable and Adam Baldwin being, well, Adam Baldwin (and since I loved him in Firefly that's good enough).
A guy at work has been all over me for dissing Chuck. He has seen episode 3 and says it's the best so far.
I've heard nothing good about the second Bionic Woman from people.
Perfectly said about Bionic Woman. It is such a good concept, but it is really jerky in sequence and story telling. I think I am done with that one. I still like Chuck and I am looking forward to PD next week.
