TV Catch Up (Mostly White Collar)

Good News: For the first time in weeks I'm not buried in work and am healthy!

Bad News: Life has been very weird and drama filled where I live (though I'm not directly affected). I only mention this as a significant reason(s) as to why I'm nearly two weeks behind in White Collar discussions. Though you may consider yourself spared. ;)

I'm not sure what the future will hold for my White Collar posting. At best, the show is wildly uneven this season. I can't say there's been a single episode yet I loved. There were a lot of moments I liked in 'Dentist of Detroit', but then I watched 'Veiled Threat' and there was A LOT I loathed. :/

A quick(er) rundown of some other TV:

Of USA's two new series, Necessary Roughness and Suits, Necessary Roughness I'm finding...OK. Like Royal Pains, it's a good show to have on in the background. ;) Suits, however, nearly sends me into rage blackouts. I've watched two episodes (the pilot and last week's) and OMG, IT'S ALL SO WRONG! I work at a law firm. I know how law firms operate. And I know how the attorneys work - what they do, what they don't do, and, oh, yeah, that THEY NEED TO HAVE GRADUATED LAW SCHOOL AND BE A MEMBER OF THE BAR. Argh! I find the whole thing incredibly insulting and cannot watch anymore of it. (OK, standard 'Unless Jamie Bamber guest stars disclaimer.) On the flip side, The Good Wife I do watch and it actually gets a lot of stuff right, if in a slightly more dramatic manner.

Burn Notice - It's Back! Yeah, it never really went away, but I found last season very hard to get through. I even debated giving up, but I'm glad I decided to check out the season premiere. The (sort of) reset has worked really well. As has relegating Jessie to outside help they call in only when needed. Cut for potentially spoilery stuff.Collapse )

True BloodCollapse )

OK, off to eat dinner and hopefully watch some new L&O:UK. :) Oh! And, if you have the opportunity, check out the most recent (in the US) Graham Norton Show with Ewan McGregor. I've always liked Ewan, but I didn't realize he was made of so much awesome! He essentially stated the original Star Wars trilogy was better than, oh, the one he starred in. Enthusiastically, wielded a replica lightsaber and engaged in a duel. And even more enthusiastically, reenacted his sex scene with Christian Bale in 'Velvet Underground'. O_o
