A Little Non-Political Catching Up...

The craziness of my life has just subsided a teeny bit with my disassociation with a project I had been working on for the past few months. It could've been very cool if it weren't for the fact that one of the bosses was insane and the other a whipped little bitch (yes, I'm referring to a male) and that when the going got tough, the search for scapegoats got going. They're doomed to fail now and when it all craters, that's when they'll really hate themselves for not listening to me when I was trying to save them from themselves. C'est la whatever.

In other news, I've found myself watching more TV than ever, despite many of the usual shows I watched being gone (e.g. Star Trek, Alias) or not starting until January (read: 24). I have been watching returning usuals and some of the new ones and here's some snapshot comments on them:

Desperate Housewives: Eva Longoria is funnier than ever; Marcia Cross is acting great (though how can they not write her pregnancy in?); but Teri Hatcher is still annoying. Let's see if they can do better than last season's show.

Heroes: I'm referring to this as "Stephen King's X-Men" and that says it all. Liking it, but it's been too obtuse for its own good.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip: I never watched "Sports Center" or the liberal porn fantasia "The West Wing" yet I'm totally onto Aaron Sorkin's self-infatuation. The stuff about the show is fun, but the Chandler-Jesus Girl stuff is forced. I'm about ready to cut this one loose.

30 Rock: It only premiered tonight, but I laughed; Alec Baldwin is funny (for a political moron); and Tina Fey is the hottest nerd babe on TV. MILFtastic!!!

Lost: My g/f is about to bail on this one and only watches for Sawyer. They need to get the whole gang back together instead of showing only a quarter of the cast per week.

The Nine: 2nd episode tonight and I was more interested in watching the Tigers beat Oakland in Game 2 of the ALCS. They'd better start ladling some more story in quickly or this is getting cut.

My Name is Earl: Still funny from what I've seen. I can't believe this show actually became a hit.

Supernatural: More focused this year than last - caught the first season on DVD - and it appears they're going to delve deeper into the Hunter mythos.

Ugly Betty: Only saw the first episode and it seemed cute, but I don't know how much they'll get from the concept. The lead isn't ugly as much as a typical chunky Hispanic, lacking any fashion sense; but without the braces and glasses, she's fine. (If you've seen the cover to the film "Real Women Have Curves' at the video store, that's America Ferrara. Ironic name, eh?) This conflicts with my practice night, so I'm probably not going to be able to keep up with it.

SNL: I've not been one of the boo birds who've bashed it forever as unfunny because they've had some great shows (e.g. the first Lindsey Lohan appearance), but I turned off the season premiere after Weekend Update and last week, I killed it after the monologue in favor of playing video games. Besides, aren't I already watching "SNL" two other times on this list?

Jeez, that's a lot of boob tube. Speaking of which, does anyone else remember when Anne Heche's new series, "Men In Trees", was called "Northern Exposure"?

I've also been buying a bunch of games for my Xbox 360 which has made its blg happier. (Hit the link at right to see.) GRAW is cool, as is Dead Rising. Always fun to kill zombies!
