In other TV news, Michael Shanks is doing yet another SciFi Saturday classic airing December 20th. Gateworld has a few details about The Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon:
Recruited by co-star Shannen Doherty's character, Thain helps her search for her professor father. He and his Smithsonian team disappeared when they discovered a hidden Aztec city protected by warriors from the past and a deadly flying serpent.
Shannon Doherty? Deadly flying serpents? There shall be much mocking.
Why does Michael hate Toby? Is it an irrational hate or did Toby actually do something to Michael? Toby seems nice enough if a but boring.
And while I appreciated Jim's gesture and I suspect converting the garage to a studio sold Pam on house, you just don't do things like that without consulting your fiance/wife/significant other. I would have thrown a fit. I just can't imagine starting a life with someone who doesn't consult you about major decisions like that.
I will say I found the picture cemented to the wall particularly humorous since that actually happened to a friend of mine. She's lived in her house six years now and the ugly pictures are still attached to the walls. She can't remove them without ripping out part of the drywall.
I loved this weeks episode. Steve Martin may have had his best part in years. John McEnroe's cameo actually worked for me, though I'm not sure how many people know he is an art collector. Jenna and Tracy have always been the weak links for me, but Jenna was MIA this week and Tracy's fear that his sons were going to go Menendez on him I found to be one of his stronger storylines. And given Tracy's paranoia having the kids confront him in the dark with hockey masks was a nice touch. I'm probably going to be the oddball and say my favorite moment was when Jack told Liz that no one knows what racketeering is.
