The TV Nerd's Monday Night

I won't get too spoilery, for the benefit of people on my friends list whose cable went out (ahem - try moving to a modern, civilized part of Brooklyn), but all I'll say about Heroes is...was that a fucking dinosaur? God, this show just keeps on rocking!

Also, Eden is a ridiculous character, easily the lamest on the show (I blame the actress, not the role, which could have been so much better realized), but I still feel bad for her. I'm a giver that way.

Lastly, go Haitian dude!

Studio 60 finally seems to be coming into its own. Plots are shaping up well, the diatribes against the hypocrisy of moral majority types are getting shorter, and for the first time they actually showed a skit from the show-within-the-show that was funny and clever, involving Santa Claus coming down the chimney into one of those Dateline "To Catch a Predator" specials. I'm glad they gave Studio 60 a full season. I'll keep watching.

Last Monday was Prison Break's fall finale, but I didn't watch it because, as you know, that show is dead to me.

(I also got a lot of writing done today, but TV is more fun to talk about.)
