just a bit of new TV  
Since the fall schedule has (mercifully) been getting closer to the winter hiatus/repeats schedule, I only have a few things to add for this update.  Links to W-I from the fake cuts, in chronological airing order:

Battlestar Galactica: 3.09 - "Unfinished Business"

Heroes: 1.11 - "Fallout"

Smallville: 6.09 - "Subterranean"

Supernatural: 2.09 - "Croatoan"

Battlestar Galactica: 3.10 - "The Passage"

The Office and Scrubs have also been side-splitting, as is customary, Friday Night Lights is still THE best new show this fall season, and The O.C. has managed to really be quite fun to enjoy, now that the Marissa black-hole of development is gone - I just can't get into detail on everything. 

Tonight, tomorrow and Wednesday bring the three-parts of the latest Sci-Fi Channel miniseries The Lost Room.  Looks kinda X-Files/Twin Peaks-ish, so I'm curious.  It's sci-fi, and Peter Krause is the lead, so I'll check it out. 

Speaking of Peter Krause,
I finally finished the last disc of Six Feet Under, that I had been watching from my Blockbuster Online queue the last couple of months.  The series as a whole is tough for me to categorize.  I can easily say that some of the acting and writing done for the show is some of the finest ever done for TV.  The content and directions of the storylines for some of the characters are where some of my gripes lay, but I can still appreciate the scope of the series for what it accomplished.  I'd heard vague descriptions of the finale, without being spoiled, before I began watching the DVDs - about how amazing it was, how beautiful, sad, smart, etc., etc.  With all things being equal for a series finale - if TPTB of a show are given time to wrap up the plot lines, resolve hanging character arcs, and give the audience some closure on the lives of the characters they've come to know - Six Feet Under has just about the best series finale of any show I've ever seen.  The last 10-15 minutes are just... jaw-dropping.  The visuals and music come together better than I could have even imagined, and all the personal and professional shit that the Fishers have gone through is wrapped up in one inspired montage of finality that is fitting for a show that dealt with the myriad of issues it did.  I was totally impressed, and now better understand why Larry insisted Sia's "Breathe Me" is such a great song. 


Back to work.
