Good, Bad and Ugly
Tru Calling is back on our screens, scheduled at a far more appropriate, and survivable, Tuesday 10:30pm. Yay! This weeks ep, "Closure", deals with Tru reliving the day trying to save a guy who's probably going to die anyway. While watching this ep I found myself thinking of possible extremes the series could go. When will Tru die, and get to relive the day avoiding her own death? How often will she have restraining orders filed against her?
For those who like Stargate, 7 has picked up where it left off with the new series. I haven't watched this show regularly for ages now, and when I switched over tonight saw many characters I didn't know. I got scared and ran away.
Some bizarre news is 7 has acquired The X-files. Starting with the very first ep tonight, it's on Wednesday and Thursday nights at 11:30pm. I will make an effort to watch as many as I can, because I was not a regular viewer until much later on.
This week has the strangest and by far bizarrest combination of items. Historically schedules are arranged to keep a viewer watching, thus scheduling shows that are likely to appeal to similar audiences together. This Friday night can only be looked upon with head shaking.
8:30pm Mary Poppins (1964). Family.
11:30pm Pitch Black (2000). Sci-fi.
I really like both films but would any parent in their right mind not be disturbed to find their sprout, who has stayed out of bed a little longer, watching the start of the very dark Pitch Black? I doubt it.
And we come to the ugly. I can feel a guilty pleasure show creeping up on me. I watched nearly all of The O.C. this week. I laughed and enjoyed it. This could be the start of something scary.
