My ultra-boring life

welll......

I forgot about Dollhouse. Don't know how I could forget, since Joss Whedon is my master now, but I forgot. It's remarkably cool. Not as cool as Firefly (alas!), but fairly cool nevertheless. Another one of those shows that makes you think of the nature of being, of good and evil. Wait, did I say /another/ one? I can't think of any others! Anyway, you should watch it.

AND...

Of COURSE I miss Pushing Daisies because who wouldn't? Luckily my sweet husband just bought me the first season on Blu-Ray and hopefully I'll get the 2nd season for Christmas or something and I can cherish them forever.

On another topic, raising kids is really hard. Just thought I'd mention that.

Oh, and...

On the subject of television, I should also mention that I miss the show Life. The last episode last year was one of the best shows I've seen in a long while, though it hinted at closure so it's not a HUGE surprise that the show is gone. I just miss it. It was a unique crime drama and I'm sad it's gone. But hey, it's not like the old days where I would know immediately when a show wasn't renewed and get my britches in an uproar, so I guess I'm getting more mature about such things in my old age.

Apologies and TV

First, I'd like to apologize for saying, "At least in the US I've been to a lot of states." Because, DUH, where BUT the US will I have been to a lot of states?

Next, I'ma gonna talk about TV. Don't watch it all that much anymore, but hey, there ARE some good things.

1. The Mentalist. Really like it, esp. the main guy. It's just fun to watch the interactions between the characters.
2. Castle. Liked it okay last season, this season I LOVE it. And not just for my crush on Nathan Fillion. It's just plain fun to watch, and funny. It's hard to find original crimes in these shows these days -- and this one is really no exception to that rule -- but if you can give me another good gimmick, that's good enough.
3. Chuck. Apparently not coming back until March, which is just plain cruel, but it IS coming back. Yes, Chuck is my other tele-crush.
4. House. I was almost over watching this, but this season they pulled me back in with the mental health angle. The depictions of the repercussions of mental illness, and the depiction of the mental health industry, were spot-on according to my experience. We need to get rid of the stigma of not only mental illness in our society but the stigma of the medications and personnel equipped to HELP us through mental illness. I'm still watching with trepidation, but so far so good.
5. Everything else. I watch a few other things, but not much worth mentioning, really. You'll have to tell me if there are any new shows that are outstandingly fun to watch.
