Another week is upon us and the fall TV season is finally being reflected in the cooler weather here in Southern California. Imagine that. I took advantage of the cool temperatures by sitting in front of the TV and watching more shows than ever this weekend!
Friday was the return of Numb3rs and again I was on the edge of my seat as Don was chased through the mountains by dangerous diamond thieves.
They introduced the new character, Niki, and she fit in seamlessly – sorry to say this but I didn’t miss Megan until I just thought about it right now.
Saturday was a Primeval with a bit of a murder mystery twist and Saturday Night Live has pulled me back in thanks to the Tina Fey/Sarah Palin combo.
On Sunday, I tried to watch the new show Easy Money on The CW but couldn’t get past the first ten minutes. It wants to be The Sopranos but it’s not even close. I ended up switching over to a DVD of Robot Chicken so that oughta tell you something.
No worries about tonight with Dancing and Sarah Connor, I’m good to go.
