The Intel lapdance!

So I'm watching TV, and this commercial for Intel Centrino (the processor they use for laptops) comes on, and the narrator asks, "Want incredible entertainment experiences in your lap?"

... yeah.

If you like Boggle, Scrabble, Text Twist, etc, you might like Dungeon Scroll, which is, umm, basically a dungeon crawl that involves forming words from the letters you're given to defeat monsters. Shush, it's fun.

TWO MORE DAYS!!!

*ahem* Please pardon my hockey Tourette's.

So, thanks to having a setup where I can record two things (and watch a third) at the same time, and also download stuff using BitTorrent, I've been able to check out every show that I have a vague interest in.

Of all the new shows, nothing that I really love, not like Veronica Mars last season, but I do look forward to watching Threshold, Supernatural and Surface, in a it's-pretty-bad-but-I-want-to-see-what-happens-next kinda' way.

Seeing as I will have no time for anything but work, gym and watching hockey from Wednesday onwards *grin* I'm going to record my impressions of this season's TV shows now, by day.

Monday

Arrested Development
Back on its game. I thought toward the end of the last season, it got too reliant on inside jokes. Also, I can never get enough of the Blue Man Group stuff.

Kitchen Confidential
Pretty funny! Loving food, and having a roommate who's a chef, and also liking the lead actor because he was in Alias and Jack and Bobby, I appreciate this show a little more. It's got the fluffy feel of...

Las Vegas
Guilty pleasure. Like, it's lame and unrealistic blah blah blah, but it's fun. And generally I like seeing people get along, especially with all the girls being good friends. And there is lots of boobage. Also, it's funny to watch the cast do the white people dance during the musical guest bits.

Medium
I decided last season that I was cutting out all police procedurals. No CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, CSI: Toledo, Without a Trace, Cold Case, Numbers, etc etc because while the shows were entertaining and had fairly interesting characters, nothing was really sticking with me after each episode because they were all self-contained mysteries. There wasn't enough character development in the series and I didn't want that because that would have ruined the entertaining part of the show for me--the case.

Medium is essentially a police procedural, but it's also a show about a woman with young kids who has a job that's more demanding than her husband and that's interesting to me.

Surface
I like sea monsters.

Prison Break
I have this downloaded, but haven't watched any episodes yet. Maybe I'll wait until the end of the season and watch them all at once. Stupid premise, but Felicity had a dumb premise too, and it's one of my favourite shows, all-time.

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT IS LIKE THE GREATEST SHOW EVER. I CANNOT GET ENOUGH TOBIAS.

ALSO!! YOU NEED TO WATCH RENUION. I AM NOW OFFICIALLY HOOKED.

Ahh, remember when he was following Lindsay around to spy on her and he would paint himself to blend in with billboards??? Bwahahaha!

I'm following Reunion! Is it just me, or is Carla the reincarnation of Molly Ringwald?

I LOVE WHEN THEY HAD TO GET THE "BAND" BACK TOGETHER!! IT WAS THE ESPISODE WITH JOB'S "BACHELOR PARTY"!! THAT ONE IS MY FAVORITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ALSO!! DUDE YOU ARE SO RIGHT ON. AND AND AND??I TOTALLY THINK JENNA IS THE ONE WHO GOT KILLED. (A) SHE MAKES AN ASIDE THAT "SHE'LL BE DEAD IN 20 YEARS" AND (B) THEY SAY THE HAVE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO FROM "THE LOFT", AND JENNA LIVED IN A LOFT!!

GAH!!! THE LAWYER IN ME CANNOT REST FOR A SECOND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ahahahahaha and then Buster got smashed on juice??? That was awesome!

Wow, I totally have no recollection of A and B. I would be the worst detective ever. I had a vague idea that it was the rich boy (man, I can't even recall his name without effort) who bit it.

Apparently they reveal who died in the 5th episode, but I think you've picked up on the right clues!

I watch three tv shows and sports. I know, years of working nights means tv is the bottom of the list.

supernatural, so bad it's good. it's so nice to have a tv show with boys that act like brothers. Like snark on each other :)

hockey hockey hockey I re-read piles of my own fan fic reposting it. I am now officially ready to start, and to bring up how cute it is that Matt Stajn has said a zillion times this month that he'll be living in his own place.

Do you think soon he'll just draw the puck bunnies a map?

I record everything on TiVo anyway, so I just watch anytime. :D

Supernatural has the same kind of feel as the early seasons of X Files, the "creature of the week" episodes that I liked, not the conspiracy stuff. I wonder how many different types of monsters/ghosts they can come up with, though. :P

Stajan is so adorable. :) And I am more than ready to read some hockey fic!!!

If I could watch all the tv shows I wanted to.... I would always be watching television.

And Felicity didn't have a dumb premise! It was a girl going to college!! Is my life a dumb premise, Mae? LOL

So the way to make sure you never graduate from college is to send you a TiVo? *grin*

It was a girl abandoning Stanford for NYU to chase a boy she barely knew!!! I mean, if I hadn't accidentally watched an episode I wouldn't have ended up falling in love with the show and buying all 4 seasons on DVD!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, I'm not quite sure if anything can top S1 Vmars. That was some really great writing/acting/cinematography/everything.

PS I may pee my pants before Wednesday gets here.

Yeah, it's pretty unfair to compare anything to that. Threshold is a great so-bad-it's-good show though. :P

hey, dungeon scroll gold edition is out! -Seth
