Terra Nova 
I watched the series premier of Terra Nova last night. While it didn't instantly hook you the way Lost did when it started, it definitely has some promise.

With that in mind, I highly recommend that everyone avoid this series like the plague.

We all know what happens when I watch a new show from the beginning.

I'm willing to bet it won't last to the end of the first season.

The Event 
There's a big ad campaign going on now for some new TV show called The Event.

It looks exciting.

Am I going to watch it? HELL NO!

After the fiasco that was my fandom of Persons Unknown, I'll be damned if I'm going to start watching another new series that will probably end up being moved through 3 different time slots so I miss a few episodes and have no idea whether they're going to see it through to the end or not.

Fool me once...

If it's as good as they're making it out to be, maybe I'll pick it up once they get Season 2 going and the Blu-ray's get released...

What Happened to Brent Butt??? 
I just watched an hour long comedy show put together by Brent Butt.

I think it was called "The Brent Butt Comedy Special".

Honestly... I have absolutely no idea what made me stick it out and watch the whole hour.

Now I wasn't a rabid Corner Gas fan or anything, but I liked the episodes I saw. It seemed like a good show and Brent Butt seemed like a funny guy, but watching this special brought back to me memories of that one-episode series that Rosie O'Donnell put together a few years back.

There just wasn't a funny moment throughout the entire thing. It was like watching small train wrecks one after another, and hoping eventually there'd be some sort of grand finale that never comes. What was he thinking???

I guess if nothing else, I now know who Jully Black. For what it's worth, she's not funny either, and I hope to God she sounds better on her albums or in any other shows she does.

So that was that. Wasted an hour watching a rerun of some sadly unfunny comedy show.

Hope everyone's enjoying the long weekend so far! :)

Persons Unknown: NBC are Dicks 
Well, apparently I'm the only one watching this show, and NBC finds that very annoying.

I don't think they were happy that I managed to watch the last episodes after they changed the time slot, so they've gone and changed the dates entirely.

I really like this show... but I can't imagine how they could expect anyone to watch something if they keep shifting it around and never tell anyone what they're doing!

So screw you NBC. You've been showing ads all the way through telling us that we would see this through to its conclusion this summer. If you take it off the air and expect people to buy DVD's to see the end, then I hope you fail miserably not just on this show, but on anything else you try as well.

You can be sure that the next time NBC has a new show that I think looks interesting, I'll think twice and three times before committing to watching it!

Persons Unknown: Still Good 
Wife is starting to lose interest, but I'm still into it. Now that they've actually killed someone, I'm even more curious as to what the heck's going on!!

Oh... did I give something away?

I also keep looking forward to that idiot/rapist guy getting beat up in new and interesting ways. That's a pretty good subplot in itself!

On an unrelated note... the Dutch just missed what looked like a sure goal! Ouch!!
