Monday Night TV

Ok, I have to confess, I didn't pay that much attention to Chuck. I made the mistake of hoping online thinking I would just check LJ during commercials, I see there is a new BSG trailer and I got distracted. However, when I don't feel like I missed much that's probably saying something. I really enjoyed the pilot, but the show has yet to really take hold of me and some elements seemed like a retread of the last two weeks. Or maybe I missed a bunch of important stuff.

Or, as I like to put it, the Bennets and some other people I could care less about. ;) As much as I like David Anders, think he's doing a good job, and Kensei is a potentially interesting character, boy am I bored with the storyline. I even called it last week that Hiro was going to fall for the girl and she'd fall for Hiro believing him to be Kensei. I'm not patting myself on the back for this astute observation, see, I've seen TV and movies before. I wish I knew what the point of any of this was. I'm guessing Kensei will be around for awhile, especially since he can't be killed, which means Hiro will be separated from the rest of the heroes for quite some time or he'll jump back to the present and find Kensei very much alive and running Sony.

The worst storyline though I think continues to be Peter's. I'm waiting for the Irish to take up arms outside NBC studios. A note to the writers, just including non-Americans does not make you the bastion of diversity. Try doing a little research. Heck, hit wikipedia. See that not all Irish are cut from the same Guinness soaked cloth. I'm part Irish and the heavy drinkers and crooks are not from that side of the family.

Hey, Wes, Clark Kent wants his move back. At what point does a homage become a rip-off? And is just me or is Wes a bit creepy? He's definitely obnoxious. I guess Claire is just so eager to have someone to share her secret with she's blinded to some of his less than appealing traits. Once again, she seems to be willing to believe the worst of her father. If Noah has had contact with Wes before it had to be with good reason. I'd worry about Noah if we didn't already know that the painting depicting Peter blowing up New York didn't come to pass.

I've never been a Sylar fan, but I found him intriguing in this episode. Without his powers he's not special, just a regular old pyscho. Who seems to be trapped on the same island with the Lost castaways.

So DL is really dead? And Niki is about to make another bad decision. Whatever.

OK, week three, and I so am sick of the Bizzaro Super Twins. She kills, he cures. Wow. That's exciting. They haven't even established that they are on the run from some big evil organization. They're wanted for murder, and, hey, they've killed people! So are they even a blip on anyone's radar?

I've been reading con reports from the Chicago con that Katee and Tahmoh appeared at this weekend. There was some spoilage which I won't get into, but a remark made by Katee at the charity breakfast in regards to Bionic Woman I found interesting. It seems the BW set is not the happiest of working environments. There has been some speculation as to why. Could Michelle Ryan be upset that Katee's gotten all the good press and has stolen her thunder? I don't know about that, but given that the show has experienced quite a bit of bad press by both the critics and the fans I could see it affecting the mood of the cast and crew. Katee also indicated that *a lot* of people at NBC keep giving their two cents. As much as I believe SciFi deserves to be criticized for many things, they rarely ever butt in with the actual day to day running of BSG. And the few times they have put their foot down with Ron and David, I have to admit, I agreed with them. I still feel Michelle was a horrible casting choice, but perhaps it's NBC's meddling that has created such a barely coherent mess of a show?
