Veronica Mars was a bit better, but still, the only reason I keep watching this season is show loyalty, not for quality. And good Lord, I hate the new opening credits. Way to ruin a perfectly awesome song. On a positive note, it was nice to see Rider Strong.. reminded me of my Friday nights as a youngen, watching Boy Meets World while flipping through the yearbook and drawing hearts on my high school crushes. Nine years later, not much has changed.
Grey's was better too, but I dunno, the writers seem to be trying too hard? Again, maybe it's me. The Denny reveal at the end did move me though. One positive: I walk away from each episode with a determined resolve to get on the Eric Dane workout plan. Last time I almost dropped a towel was in high school... women fled, babies cried, men committed seppuku. Nine years later, not much has changed.
The only two shows I've been consistently enjoying are How I Met Your Mother and the Office. Maybe comedy's making a comeback... which would be a sweet gift from the heavens for my writing partner and I. By the way, I added some more positive news to the Story of Me. I'll be reposting updates periodically.
Oh and I've been loving Lost so far. Finally, we have episodes where stuff actually happens! Genius!
Lastly, Josh Schwartz kindly sent me (and a few other bloggers) the first four episodes of the new OC season. And I'm here to say that they are AWESOME. I will be posting a full update, with spoilers and some new OC music as well. Stay tuned!
