Battlestar Galactica calls it quits after tonight’s episode. Meanwhile, the action packing ladies of Fox rock tonight on Sarah Connor Chronicles and Dollhouse.
Pass the tissues please. Last night’s Supernatural was crushing! Poor Dean Winchester, as if it wasn’t bad enough that his beloved brother might go dark side, now he finds out that it was his own weakness that is bringing about the end of the world. Yikes! I don’t think he can take much more, and man, oh man Jensen Ackles does know how to work it when it comes to playing “broken.” He slays me with that quivering lip and that single tear.
Then there’s little brother Sammy (Jared Padalecki) who has taken up sucking demon blood in order to get a paranormal power boost. Is it wrong that I found that hot? Hey, can’t be worse than lusting over heavenly angel Castiel as played by Misha Collins. And next weekend, I’ll be seeing all of them in person as I attend the Supernatural convention in Los Angeles — prepare for full-on swooning for several days after.
Last night I cleared Life and Law & Order off the DVR. Life was the introduction of Gabrielle Union as Crews’ new partner and I was underwhelmed. The show has lost its spark and I hear it’s on the way out. It used to be one of my favorites but it’s simply not working anymore.Law & Order was an interesting tale about the death of a writer who was working on a book about an American spy. Lots of twists and turns that I didn’t see coming and I’m still really digging on Jeremy Sisto but I don’t know if I love it enough to stay tuned for another season. I think this franchise is on the way out, too.Tonight’s a big one for the Sci Fi crowd and basketball fans. Check this out.
