It’s been a while, I know, but I am thinking I will start writing on this blog again. My love for TV has never wavered, you will be pleased to learn and I have been watching plenty so should have lots to talk about.
I recently discovered Dark Angel (why do I always get really into these programmes AFTER they have been cancelled!?). The SciFi Channel has just finished showing the whole series. There are flaws in it, to be sure, but I am a sucker for a sci-fi heroine and the show had a good mix of romance and action. HOWEVER. Why on earth did they continue with the whole ‘Max can’t touch Logan without killing him’ thing? I can only assume they were hoping for a thrid series to sort it all out. Or that they are cynical and loveless fools. I really am a hopeless romantic so I like it when the lead girl and the lead boy actually GET IT ON at some point.
I have also got myself a new crush – fairly inevitable when I watch a TV show with a good looking man – Michael Weatherly. He played Logan in Dark Angel and now stars in NCIS. Naturally, this means I have started watching this. In fact, I am watching two different seasons since it is being shown on FX and Five. You gotta love Sky +! I really like me a detective type show and this one is pretty cool. The investigations are quirky, the characters’ chemistry really works and, well, Michael Weatherly is in it, like I said. His character, Tony Dinozzo, is either a loveable rogue or complete misogynist. Since MW is so cute, I am going with loveable rogue. Because I have no shame.
I have also just purchased Angel Season 2 boxset and the Firefly series. I am totally in love with Joss Whedon. I have never really watched Firefly – I gave it a shot a while back but after watching (and liking) Serenity, I am looking forward to seeing the whole series.
In other Whedon news, I am just about to watch the final episode of Buffy for the gagillionth time. I have also subscribed to the new Buffy Season 8 comic, written by Joss, which makes me officially a bone fide Buffy-nerd. The comic is fantastic – great art work and and dialogue. The Whedon touch makes it very authentic. The comic is a ‘what happened next’ for all the die-hard fans who have suffered a great loss since the series finished: Dawn’s a giant! Xander’s a Watcher! Amy is evil! Warren is ‘alive’ (sans skin)!
Another new programme I have discovered is What About Brian. I watched an episode mid-season and noticed that Jabrams (JJ Abrams of Alias and Lost fame) is the executive producer. I was not disappointed. Perfect light entertainment.
I was starting to worry I wasn’t going to have anything to watch after the season finales of ER, Ugly Betty, Lost, and 24 but what with all this viewing and Big Brother 8 (I know, I know but I can’t help it), it looks like I will survive after all!
