I have been a little bit of a slacko with my TV watching lately. Although, in my defence this hasn’t been helped by the fact that the television stations have been annoying me. Firstly, I just start getting into Chuck on GO at 8:30 on Wednesdays and GO shifts it to 10:30. That is Too Late for me and my DVD recorder doesn’t record GO. Secondly, I have really started enjoying Community which was initially screening on Tuesday evenings. Fine, good, dandy. Now they have shifted it to Monday evenings which I means I am at choir and miss the delights of Chevy Chase as a adult student at a community college. Thirdly, Glee. Channel Ten you are peeving me quite intensely with this long drawn out screening of the end of the series. It was frustrating enough that there were some episodes without more than a peep of Sue Sylvester and Emma seems to have disappeared completely. I refused to watch the Hamish and Andy filler as well as the Brisbane Lions on principle.
What has been good though is that Doctor Who has improved mightily as the series continued. At the beginning of the new Doctor I was really quite lukewarm about the whole Doctor, Amy, crack storyline but they picked up their game which was good and I am now looking forward to the two-part finale. Also, Little Dorrit. I am a complete sucker for any kind of costume drama, literature adaptation so I really enjoyed the first episode even though I haven’t read the book so I found the foreign prisoners quite confusing. And of course, I delight on Friday nights watching Elvis Costello on Spectacle. Last night it was all about him. Mary-louise Parker did the interviewing. While I disliked her West Wing character quite a lot, she was okay in her chat with Elvis. Here is just one of the highlights.3 Comments »
