Dear faithful readers,
how is your TV season shaping out?
I do have to admit I find it all a bit… well… meh really. I haven’t even started on Dexter (which used to be a favorite of mine), I only watched one episode of Dollhouse and thinking of kicking it to the curb because quite frankly I don’t know where they are going with it and I am way behind with Mad Men.
Fringe is so-so but I’m hanging in there because unlike with Dollhouse there seems to be some sort of a global game plan. While I was blown away by House season premiere at the moment I am seconds away from giving up on the show. I know I cannot believe it either what am I supposed to do for my Hugh Laurie weekly fix? But that is a topic for another blog post altogether.
There is one show that is all sorts of awesome and I’m frankly quite surprised how consistently good it is – Supernatural.
I know it is supposed to be the last season so it is only expected the writers really want it to go out in a blaze of glory (how very Bon Jovi of them) but each and every episode this season has been awesome. I was not bored once – hell I didn’t even want to go to the loo in case I might have missed something. While the whole apocalypse thing is scary to even contemplate it has been made just scary enough for you to get the chills but you simply cannot help yourself and be glued to your TV screen. Winchester brothers are at their best – there is enough of misery, hurt and distrust there to make it interesting but they are learning to get along all over again. And of course some scenes are funny as hell (Cas as a figurine?! I want to kiss whoever came up with that because I had a good old proper belly laugh that I haven’t had in ages).
I’m telling you – Supernatural writers are in the zone and it totally shows.
So tell me dear readers – how is your TV season shaping up? Have you given up on some of your favorites? Have you found some new ones? Do let me know in the comments section below.
