tv dinners

watercooler chat about what’s on TV and what you had for dinner last night

Thursdays are not funny, yet

Give it a good 30 minutes, then watch 30Rock on Five 11 til midnight.

In the meantime, while the Convention Crasher with Justin Lee Collins, is taping, let’s talk about Lost.

Back on Sunday, I’m afraid I’ve already forgotten my dislike of the series finale’s ‘flash forwards’ and can’t wait for the series four start.

E! have got some great preview clips of the episode if you’re feeling peckish, or you can relive the good old days with their behind the scenes interviews with all the dead Lost characters in Watch with Kristin.

Watching the sneak clips reminded me how much of the show is in really shady jungle and dim light, very 24. Our TV doesn’t really do dark, which just adds to the mystique.

Speaking of 24, Kiefer’s back out of jail, he’s served his time and the startled legend that is Mary Lynn Rajskub (pron. RICE-cub according to Wiki, highly dubious), is pregnant, because of the writers strike, I guess she got bored. Does anyone else remember her from The Larry Sanders show?

She and Wallace Langham always turn up on the same shows after Larry – see Veronica’s Closet (well don’t, but they were both in that) and CSI, 24, Little Miss Sunshine.

Can the next 24 series be any good though? Do they know how crap day 6 was? Also, wasn’t day 6 meant to be several years ahead of present day, perhaps a robot threat is next for the seemingly useless CTU. Day 7 too, you know even if you’re not Christian, you expect a lot from day 7.

TV’s looking pretty sparse, there’s nothing on Tuesday or Wednesdays, we need Dirty Sexy Money (Peter Krause & Donald Sutherland) and Mad Men to start! Or the Apprentice, whatever, just something that’s actually drama and not buy this house or lose weight or train your dog.

  1. I can’t tell if Mary Lynn looks bored or angry.

  2. See this article in the Guardian on US TV..

    personally I love Damages, love 30 Rock.

    I just can’t understand why UK channels bother buying in US shows when they’ve no intention of showing them in a steady time slot or in prime time, they’d rather show lame reality shows..
    Wonder if BBC will get the season 2 rights for Heroes – Heroes was on the Sci Fi channel first last time around.

    30 Rock for example has been a double bill for the last three weeks – why do Five want to get rid of it so quickly? It’s the only thing on Five I watch now that Californication is gone.

    Re 24 – I’m not sure you need to be a red neck to like 24, it’s just that the whole of day 6 was rubbish.
