So I finally watched Dollhouse and Terminator: Sarah Conner Chronicles ... and my long-winded (per usual) thoughts ...

So, I'm totally still adoring The Big Bang Theory and now I have even MORE reason!!!!!
This has been a big week for The Big Bang Theory's nerd herd. First, they score their best ratings ever, and now they're getting to rub elbows with frakkin' Summer Glau!

The Sarah Connor Chronicles siren will play herself in the March 9 episode, the set-up of which already has me ROFWLing: A train trip to San Francisco takes a major detour when Leonard, Sheldon, Wolowitz, and Raj discover that their favorite sci-fi actress in all the land is on board. But the fanboy frenzy quickly gives way to a heated mass debate when they realize one of them will have to approach her -- but who?

It's not too difficult to figure out how this cheeky cross-over came about, provided you know this little detail: The Big Bang Theory and Sarah Connor Chronicles (which returns this Friday) are both produced by Warner Bros.

This is what we in the TV biz refer to as extremely positive synergy.

I'm an episode behind on Boston Legal so I'm not watching the series (sniff, sniff) finale tonight. I figure I'm going to stretch it out this week to savor the end. And I just didn't get to Prison Break yet. So the Monday shows I DID watch!

HIMYM is just getting better and better. A few specifics for this episode ... behind the cut )

Terminator gets some thoughts too ... )

Not getting to Prison Break tonight, and I still have Brothers & Sisters from last night, The Eleventh Hour from the night before, the last two episodes of Boston Legal AND I didn't get to the rewatch-review of "The Doctor Dances" (Doctor Who). Not to mention the three -- count 'em, THREE -- episodes of Dexter, Four -- count 'em, FOUR! -- episodes of Gossip Girl (okay, I'm going to zip through those as I actually won't watch every scene, but still ...) sitting on my computer. (Heck, I'm three episodes behind on Merlin and I'm almost thinking I should just give that one up. Sigh.)

The baptism ceremony of my two nephews and niece (my sister joined a new church, Episcopalian, they really like it, so thus the baptism ceremony) really ate so much of my weekend time up. It was worth it, though, I loved all of the family time, but man, is my tv-watching schedule hurting from it. Sigh.

Woohoo!! Thanks to the ALWAYS awesome [ profile] hiddeneloise I got the Terminator TV show on DVD (her birthday prezzie to me!). I'm so excited I want to watch it NOW!!! But alas, it must wait till this weekend to rewatch. Squee!!!!

And, so cool!, checking out the special features there's a "Summer Glau Dance Rehearsal." SCORE!!! Ooh, they know who some of their target audience is.
arabian: (World of Squee!)
Yes, it had the help of the football game definitely and it might freefall tonight, but still ...

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles at a hefty 18.29 million viewers and a 7.6/18 in the demo from 8-9 p.m.

And as most people I'm reading actually did like it a lot, hopefully many viewers will stick around and this one might actually be a hit!!!

So good; as good as I remembered it. I know its chances aren't good being on Fox and all, but I'm hoping that the writer's strike might actually help it. Twould be awesome if that were the case. Admittedly, it could totally suck in upcoming episodes, but I so loved the pilot that I have hope it will continue in its awesomeness. Since I wrote up a little review for this based on the pilot way back in the beginning of September, I'm just going to post the T:SCC review again.

I love Summer Glau. )

Damnit!! I just read that Fox isn't airing this until January. Sucks, sucks, sucks!!!!!!!

I watched two more pilots today and since there are no more out there that hold any interest for me, I finally decided to do a mini-review write-up of all of the pilots I've watched thus far. So listed below, in alphabetical order, click on the titles to read my thoughts.

The Bionic Woman )

Cane )

Chuck )

Lipstick Jungle )

Pushing Daisies )

Reaper )

Saw the consolidated Upfront new show clips here and made a list of the ones that have my interest. Great reviews and word of mouth may add more to the list or remove some. I will say that I'm giving Pushing Daisies and The Journeyman a shot based on the fact that an actress friend tried out for both and ADORED the scripts, so whether I love the clip or not, I'm trying those two out. (Although, I did like the "PD" clip.)



CW )

Fox )

Messing around making my own Serenity DVD cover because I'm not particularly fond of the official one (although my sister thinks it's fabulous and that Summer Glau looks beautiful) and liked the collage cover I made so much, I decided to make it a desktop. I thought I'd share. :)
