If you were to look at my DVR queue, you would never know that there was a writer's strike. Sure, I've got a backlog because I've been at the computer so much, but being away from some of my regular programs has allowed me to pick up a couple of others. Here's what I've been tuning into:
Is anyone else watching this? I happen to love it, not only because the leading guy is hot (and if I ever learn to spell his name, it'll be a miracle), but because I kinda love the flashbacks that parallel the modern story. They go well with a series about a man who is immortal and who is trying to lift the curse by finding his soulmate. It puts a new spin in the investigative-cop formula, and and hero is refreshingly sharp witted and charming. (And hot--did I mention this?) I'm especially amused when the cop always mentions his "past life" experiences, and people are all freaked out and going, "What do you mean you were in New York in the 1800s?" He always answers them very directly, never lying, but nonetheless sounding so preposterous that everybody thinks he's just this massive bullcrapper. Nice angle.
I adore this hilarious show. How can you not root for a former nerd girl who accepts a counseling job at her old high school so she can erase her old image? Too bad the "popular girl" who haunted her teen years is also a teacher there...and the wench is after the same cute teacher as our heroine. Go nerds!
As for oldies, I'm very much into AMERICAN IDOL. Jason Castro is my fave because he makes goofy faces, and that's good enough for me. Oh, and DANCING WITH THE STARS. I was a Yamaguchi fan years ago and I remain one now.
Also...LOST? Please get your butt back on the air with new episodes because you are killing me with your awesomeness.
Are you all into anything right now, or have you given up on the tube?
