TV reviews right here, folks!

I saw the season premier of Angel tonight. Well, most of it, anyway. The cast is starting to gel (and the new character, Fred, is cute in a really geeky way). Interesting twist at the end. I give it an A-.

I watched the season premiere of "Who Wants To Be A Princess". It was really good, the contestants were all great sports, and the Mystery Prince was a real catch.

However, some parts tended to drag, and other parts(like the swimsuit competition) seemed way too much of a ripoff of the Miss America Pageant Supershow.

Overall, it was a pretty good pilot, so hopefully it will develop into something special. Keep an eye on this one, folks...it has the potential to be the most entertaining new show of the season.

I've just lost all respect for you.

Not that I had any, of course...

Why I oughtta...

Undeclared is a good show. It's like Freaks & Geeks, only it's not as dramatic and it doesn't have ugly people.

It was a lot funnier than the commercials indicated. The characters were all cool and likeable. I especially loved the boyfriend on the phone. He was a character I could really relate to. I will watch future episodes of this show.

i agree with Jeff 1,000,010% 

and the phone boyfriend.  Man.  That was the most realistic thing ever, i swear.  and funny.  I kinda wanted to punch the dad in the stomach though, i hope he goes away more.

I missed the ellen show but i hear it was pretty gay.  (ba dum bum!)

Yep, you've mastered the single entendre, Velour.   big grin  I agree, Undeclared is great. No laugh track + hot Asian chick = pure cheesy goodness.

I also watched the pilot episode of Wolf Lake last week. Well, I didn't really "watch it". But it happened to be on while I was doing other stuff.

Despite its "sex" "appeal", I found it to be really boring. I give it four thumbs down.

s.a.t.c. is on austrian television as well...just think about what would happen if the main characters are male!? all females would go nuts....blaming the series as sexism in its purest form(men are pigs, stuff like that)but since the series is about women everything is just fine (as long as men remain pigs).
i just have seen the first four episodes from season one and all i could see are four women talking about how difficult it is to get a good man, one woman (starred by kim catrall) just has sex with every man she can put her hands on (what's the word: slut?  wink) and so on.
the series is not bad but i think "ally mcbeal" is funnier!!!
maybe men should not watch sitcoms designed for women.....

Enterprise: Despite all my reservations, I watched it, and it Did Not Suck. Bakula makes a pretty good captain, the rest of the cast is solid, Jolene is hot, Linda is huggable, the bad guys were suitably creepy, and there's no damn Prime Directive. A-/B+.

Scott Bakula makes a good captain? Doesn't he still stumble around in time?

I can just hardly imagine him in an uniform...he's still Dr. Samuel Beckett for me.

More shows I happened to catch:

Ellen--yeah, I watched it. And yeah, it was gay. And no, I'm not trying to be cute.

Alias--a show about a girl who can fight just as well as guys? What a new unique concept! Seriously though, the first episode was pretty damn good. Except for the hand-to-hand combat, some of that was kinda unrealistic. I missed the second episode, but I'll probably be watching Alias over the X-files this season.

Emeril--terrible show. Emeril himself seems likeable enough, but all the other actors suck and there wasn't a single non-cringeworthy joke in the episode I watched. I can't believe they let this air on tv.

Yea Alias is sexy.  It's about a girl that dyes her hair.  What color will she pick this week?  Tune in to see!

but seriously, its a pretty good fun show.  I'm glad that stupid guy died though, cause that would of gotten annoying really fast.

To be honest I watch mostly comedy. I actually like Undeclared, they got some funny characters. And That 70's Show is good, and not for the nostalgia theme, cuz you hardly notice that. They have some original characters.

Man I'm glad we don't get half of those shows... except for Alias which has just started (probably cuz it didn't flop in the USA)... and Enterprise is finally starting tomorrow night!!!
Although I went to one of those geeky sci-fi conventions/video days... and they showed the double episode opener of a few shows. So I'm ahead of most of the general public here in Aussie. Whew. It was okay... cept for the creepy weird non-ST style music at the start. Hello... Where did that song come from, are they trying to be more serious this time around? I don't know... And the captain, I just can't see him in a serious role really. Well it's not that serious, but I keep expecting more jokes from him which would be inappropriate in his position. Another thing that bothered me is that it is set before the other ST series in 2151. And they don't know ANYTHING. It's really annoying, but my brother finds it funny that they dunno how to use the X or Y thingy on the whatsits thingy *vague*.

Oh, Tonight yes, sorry. I was still in yesterday-mode.

Heyyyy I didn't go on my own at least! My brother and his friends were there and there was a big Xmas buffet thing *drool*. Nummy. We didn't win the trivia thing though, guess we're not nerdy enough.
