It's Friday night and my television week is over. It would've been over two days ago, really, but I only just got around to watching Gilmore Girls
now. Everything from now until Monday when I watch Sunday night's Without a Trace
(with whatever excitement I can muster) is just filler.
The shocker is Bones
was actually the show I enjoyed the most this week. (a mid-season one episode.) I can think of several reasons for this: 1) There are no expectations of greatness: This is just a silly crime show with a very very casual relationship to actual science. It's more about the characters than what actually happens, and even the characters I don't care too much about. 2) The awesome shocking post-opening credit (or possibly pre-opening credits, I can't remember) scene where Bones had been beaten up oh so badly. The effect of that was just so incredibly good that I didn't really care that the rest of the episode was about voodoo and stupid. Those two-three seconds of "Oh! What the fuck?!" made it totally worth it. And it's still funny, in that way where you can't really tell if the show is mocking itself or all the other shows it's trying to mimic. There are more reasons, but moving on, now.( Because Veronica Mars got on my nerves this week )( Gilmore Girls: Three shows for the price of one )
They referred to the same legal technicality on Criminal Intent
just now as they did in one of the old episodes of WaT I watched earlier today. It takes very little to amuse me this late at night.
