Because you need to know. ;)Being Human
Is eight episodes long this time! And continues to be really quite compelling. Annie's plot gives me shivers and makes me want to hide behind the couch. But I don't want to say much more, since it's still airing - other than, if you're not watching it and you're at all interested in a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost trying desperately to fit in to a middle-class neighborhood, you totally should be. Hmmm - maybe I love it for the same reasons I love the Addams family?

Smallville - Season Four
Mr. Tom Welling is still just as cute as a bug, now with more time with his shirt off. Neither Electric Boogaloo nor I are too depressed by this development. Although I have to wonder if Smallville perhaps moved to a later time slot for the fourth season? Because in the first disc of episodes, not only did we get a completely naked Kal-El, but it seemed like everyone up to and including Lionel Luther had a shower scene. We also just got to the introduction of The Flash, in the person of Bart Allen, with a wallet full of fake IDs sporting the names of Jay Garrick, Wally West and Barry Allen. That, with the new use of Margot Kidder and the new Lois Lane, continues to hold my attention. Survivors
Yes, it's another British show. This time it's a new version based on Terry Nation's book, the same way that the 1970s show was. We just finished series one and started series two last night, and since it's so character driven, I think that really the best way to talk about it is to talk about them.
So, for your obscure reference enjoyment (unless you're watching, too, that is):
Abby bores me to tears and they spend too much time on her. I think Tom is far more interesting, and has a more compelling story. I quite like Greg, but that might be because I'm a huge Paterson Joseph fan, more than because I like Greg. Anya is okay - at least she's useful, and sensible, both things which are needed post-apocalypse. I think the Al and Najid story is sweet, but does more for Al's character. I would like to see Najid have to work through more of his strong faith-driven beliefs after losing everything, instead of being just the kid. And Sarah finally just moved from annoying to interesting as of series 2. I loathe Dexter, and wish that Tom could just shoot him in the face already. Same goes for that horribly mis-guided goverment official woman. Also, the introduction of the "sinister lab" worries me. I hope they aren't heading off into "Lost" territory.
And to finish off, Supernatural - Season Four:
I'm a bit bored with the angels/demons story-arc at this point. I really enjoy the one-off episodes far more, where all you need to know is that Sam and Dean drive around in a hot car and kill monsters. On the other hand: tessagratton
, we just watched the episode with the prophet/author, which is totally an 'arc' episode, and it was TOTALLY WORTH THE BACKSTORY! Even if I did nearly die of laughter.
And I think I've written enough about TV for now.
