Project Runway is really interfering with my Supernatural musings. For example, this week’s Supernatural episode, “I Believe the Children Are Our Future” was good, but it didn’t leave me thinking after watching Project Runway. It’s not that PR is that fabulous (especially since my favorite designer’s already been bumped off), it’s just that I don’t have time to brood mull over Supernatural. That’s probably a good thing, though. I find I enjoy both the show and the fans much more when I don’t take it too seriously.
FlashForward is just not holding me. When I found out Allison Brie, the actress who plays Trudie on Mad Men was also in Community, I decided to watch it. For two weeks now, Community has had me in stitches. Each week the supporting players are given entertaining storylines, and they always deliver.
After Community, I switch over to FlashForward. Since I’m recording it, I start at the beginning and fast forward through all the boring stuff. (Well, boring to me.) That includes Agent Noh agonizing over his lack of a flash forward and Olivia Benton whining about hers. Hey, newsflash, Olivia, the end of your marriage is not the end of your world. Yeah, I know divorce is traumatic, but there’s so much worse that could happen. Like, you know, all those people who drowned on the bus. And it’s not like Olivia is dependent on Mark. Hell, she probably makes more money than he does anyway. Now Aaron Stark’s flash forward, where he sees his dead daughter alive, now that’s something I can understand agonizing over.
I really like Joseph Fiennes. His face so interesting, so full of emotion. You see his inner struggles, even when he’s just staring into space. And I love that Courtney B. Vance is back on tv. But honestly, I just can’t seem to take John Cho seriously. I blame it on Harold and Kumar.
