Catching Up on TV


I’ve been catching up on television shows and movies for the past couple days.

In the past few weeks, I’ve watched all three Terminator movies and re-watched Lucky Number Slevin. The Terminators were okay and I always love Lucky Number Slevin. Bruce Willis + Morgan Freeman = Win.

I’ve checked out Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Pushing Daisies, Dexter, Fringe, Clone Wars, Sarah Connor Chronicles and Arrested Development.

BBT is too painful to watch. It hits way too close to home. Not that I’m that socially awkward but yeah way too painful.

HIMYM was okay. The premise seems cool and I’m sure if I watched more than just the pilot I might enjoy it. But the whole ending of the first episode was too much of a tease.

Pushing Daisies is very funny and cute. I like it a lot. Too bad it has been cancelled.

Dexter has an interesting premise but there’s a bit too much blood for my taste. I might give it a few more episodes but I’m not really feeling it.

Fringe is pretty kick ass. It really is the new X-Files. And since the last X-Files movie was just a glorified episode, Fringe makes me very happy. It is a bit gorier but that seems to be just keeping up with the times.

Clone Wars is good enough to keep watching. After playing Force Unleashed which had a great story it is a bit of a let down. But just as I’d watch any Star Trek show, I’ll watch any Star Wars one. But it is an interesting look into the actions of the various jedi during the Clone Wars.

Sarah Connor Chronicles first episode was good enough to intrigue me. Summer Glau’s character is pretty amazing.

Arrested Development is hilarious. I will watch it until the end.

And soon Burn Notice and In Plain Sight will be back plus Heroes. And I’d like to watch Transformers Animated, Lost and West Wing. I’ve finally found some interesting TV to watch. Now just to find time to watch it.

Any other shows I should be watching?
