Is anyone else watching Chuck? I think it's one of my favorite shows on right now.

Another of my favorites is Nurse Jackie. I never thougth I'd be a fan of Edie Falco.

I also love The United States of Tara. I think that Toni Collete, while not pretty at all, is a wonderful actress. And her husband on the show is cute. Her sister cracks me up.

I watch Chuck and I love it. I think it's a great show and they made good choice to renew it last second. Enough to say when I have a choice of what to watch first: Chuck or House it's not instantaneous.

I watched first season of Nurse Jackie but somehow failed to pick it up this year. Now that you reminded me I think I'll start this week.

I fell in love with her when she tried to defend her home from burglar daughter with Ak-47 on first season of The Sopranos.

NCIS, the original with Mark Hamond and Cote de Pablo, is awesome. Never could get into NCIS: LA....

NCIS (the original) is a must cuddle up and watch on TV hour at our house. 10 years on it's going strong, but it makes me snort sometimes how much they are overexposing/lighting/vaseline-smearing the film now. I gather the camera-people are desperately trying to compensate for the aging actors. Abby is still a Mega-Goth-Geek-Babe, and NCIS is still a nasty abortion we refuse to acknowledge.

The United States of Tara is totally awesome, and every single episode we despaired that it was only half an hour. They seem to have plenty of material to do a full hour, especially with all the dysfunctional/functional difficulty-resolutions they explore. And dammit, it's just so good, that we want more of it!

I think Toni Collette is one of those interesting faced actresses that can look totally gorgeous when treated to the right make-up, clothes, camera angles and expressions. (See some of her shots when she's playing Alice). But yes, she's very much a "character actress" with a broad range, part of which comes from her ability and willingness to do ugly faces of despair, rage and bone-deep tiredness. I thought she was amazing in The Sixth Sense, and in some of her small Australian indy films.

YES! That's when I first realized how freaking amazing she is. I think it was the scene in the car when her kid finally tells her about how he sees her mom. Her voice breaking, and her stopping to collect herself and starting again... it makes me tear up, and I recognize some of myself in her distress.

Like some others here, I love Chuck and watch it weekly. Actually, that and Glee are the only shows I watch these days. Well, and Dexter (which I am sloooooowly getting to the end of season 4... about 5 episodes to go) and True Blood (which comes back this summer).

Agreed. Other gems include her turn as a manic mother in "About a Boy" and a long-suffering wife in the dysfunctional family comedy/drama "Little Miss Sunshine".

I want to get caught up with that. I've heard it's awesome.

Seasons 1 and 2 are awesome. Season 3 was somewhat awesome if you were invested in seasons 1 and 2 but if someone came in during S3, I doubt they stayed long. The end of S3 gives me hope that the show is returning to more of a S1/S2 milieu (notably, the workplace).

Put it off until as close to the start of the next season (September?)as possible. The ending of Season 4 is a complete game changer, & having to wait 9 months to see what happens next has been torture.

I'm just hoping that Dexter somehow manages to lose the kids so he can get back to his hobbies without having to deal with a family. The whole family aspect of the show really started to irritate me about halfway through the last season and I was actually glad when Rita died.

I watch that with my parents whenever I'm over there at the time it comes on, but I really should try to watch more of it, it's pretty good.


Personally, I've been rather enjoying Burn Notice. Tore through season one via Netflix in the last couple weeks after randomly watching an episode on TV a week before that. Just finished the first Blu-ray of season 2 last Thursday and I can't wait for the next one to come in.

Chuck on Mondays

South Park and Ugly Americans on Wednesday (Ugly Americans is on break now).

Fringe on Thursday Peter finally knows he isn't from out World. The Watchers don't seem to be very happy about it. I ponder on the idea that the person that came over to our World 2 episodes back is Walter's Alt- Alter.

Then there is the National Geo, or History show that talks about how Aliens came to the Earth way back in the day, and helped us out so we could survive. I think it is on Mondays, but I end up watching the repeat Saturday night. It is pretty cool if you believe in that option in our evolution.

And I try to watch some Naruto when I can online. It is one of them shows I didn't get to watch due to not having cable at the time. I think I have about 50 episodes left to be done with Part one :3

I read an article in the TV Guide Magazine about Fringe. It was an interview with John Noble about the series, including the musical episode. He said that "Walter-nate" (His word) would become more prominent in the series. My old idea of Alternate-Walter being Bell seems to have been completely wrong, but I'm ok with that.

So far this season:

Monday:
House

Tuesday:
V

Wednesday:
South Park
Ugly Americans

Thursday:
FlashForward
Fringe

Friday:
Ben 10
Generator Rex
Star Wars Clone Wars

(Laugh, I don't care...)
Merlin
Stargate Universe

Saturday:
Doctor Who

Sunday:
Fox's shows from 7:30ish to 10, then Adult Swim.

Ugly Americans looked really stupid and I was somewhat surprised to flip across it and find it watchable. Not great, but watchable.

But now every time I've seen it, it's been the same episode. The one with the succubus trying to adopt a baby and the demon guy trying to woo her. I've come across that episode six times now and never seen any other ones.

I think that was the last episode they aired and so it's probably been repeated a lot the past couple of weeks. Not that I actually watch the show itself, but I do see the commercials on CC fairly often.

Light Brown/Reddish Head Olivia looks yummy.

It's killing me that there is such a long filming gap between the last True Blood season and the next. I have a feeling that the gap is partly because at least two of the main actors have thriving film careers as well. The wait for the next Dexter season is hard, too.
