tuesday night television  
Lots of drama on tuesday night television. First, I watched Bones, which is kind of the frozen pizza of tv: it tastes fine, satisfies the hunger, but is rarely gonna impress you.

After that, though, was the season three premier of my recent fave The Unit. Lots of "Aw, yeah!" moments for me during this episode. I'm really happy that they didn't instantly solve their dilemma from last season's cliffhanger and that it will take at least another episode or two to get back to status quo (if ever).

I'd already seen a pre-air of Reaper, so I didn't feel bad about skipping that. It's funny enough, but it's more of a saturday afternoon syndicated show than a prime time one.

After The Unit, I decided to give Cane, the new show about sugar barons, a shot. Lots of sexy, rich people trying to screw each other over. Good soap operatic motivations and machinations, but handled with enough reality to give it a touch of class. Jimmy Smitts is one of those actors who is always kind of playing the same character, but I don't really care because he plays him so well. Oh, and everyone was drinking either mojitos or straight rum, so you know I loved that.

Dude-- I passed by the bisque-smelling house this morning! I was thinking it smelled somewhat like wonton soup. Have you ever seen anyone come in or out of that house? I was really thinking of asking them what they were making.

Haha... nope. To quote the tinker from Willy Wonka, "Nobody ever goes in and nobody ever comes out!"

Heh... I was tempted to watch SVU just because of the commercials with Miranda looking batshit crazy. How was it?

I only had time to watch Eureka last night, I really enjoy that show. There is only one episode left for this season. Kind of cool to have a new season run in the summer. Now I can watch other stuff in it's 9pm time slot while it's doing reruns.

No cable, so I've yet to see that show, but I'd probably like it given the joy I have for mad science.

When you see the seasons out on DVD, buy them.

I bought all fourteen episodes of Firefly for xmas last year. The best $40. I ever spent.
