Okay, now that I've done an update on all that serious Katrina stuff, I can get down to really important matters, i.e., fall television! Wheee!!!

I really, really enjoyed the "Gilmore Girls" premiere. I haven't been watching any reruns this summer and I hadn't realized how quite much I missed this show. Okay, the not kissing immediately upon becoming engaged bit was ridiculous, but otherwise I loved it. How could I not love an episode that starts off with such a sweet, emphatic affirmative from Luke?! And when they finally did kiss, oh what a kiss it was!

Rory remains a spoiled little tool who needs to get the shit kicked out of her, but I've learned to deal with that at this point, as long as they don't give her too much face time in any given episode. I'm still loving Logan like a two-dollar whore and can't wait to see what happens between them. Also, I have a disturbing fondness for Finn, for reasons that elude me. Lorelai's tough love is awesome and all her interactions with Richard and Emily continue to be amazing and wrenching. And, most importantly, Luke's new, longer hair is way sexy, and I love that we're still getting to see more of him without his baseball cap (and when I say more of him, I mean more of him nekkid).

What can I say? "House" rocks. Not only did we get LL Cool J, but we got LL Cool J and Drunk!House! Loved the Stacy stuff, LOVED the Wilson stuff, have nothing but hate for Cameron and how weak they make her. Why can't she be a woman with emotions who isn't a total freaking loser? Also, Lisa Edelstein has obviously seriously pissed off someone in wardrobe and needs send some candy and flowers ASAP so they stop dressing her like a circus clown.

Because of the stupid fall TV schedule, I actually had to pull out my VCR to record "Bones" (to see if they'd made any changes to the pilot since I saw it at Comic-con) and "Supernatural" (because, hello, Cute Dean!). Unfortunately, my VCR-programming skillz are apparently completely atrophied, because I failed to successfully record either show. Damn.

So I'll just refer ya'll to my comments about the "Bones" pilot in my Comic-con report. Must practice VCR programming between now and next Tuesday, so I don't miss next week's dose of Boreanaz.

They actually reshot the whole scene in the... ah, I don't know how to do a spoiler font. The second-to-last scene, they changed that. Works better now.

I don't even know, does one need spoiler space for an ep that aired two days ago...?

Ah, that's good. That scene was one that I thought was particularly awkward. I'm looking forward to next week's episode. Pilots are so jam-packed with exposition that they're not always a good representation of whether a show is going to be good or not.

Yay! At least we can agree on Bones! I liked it, but did have some forensic issues. The characters made up for it in a way CSI never has for me. I *loved* Boreanaz in this. He's been growing on me of late and seeing him in Bones made it even more certain. I agree that pilots are not always the best indication of how things will go. I'm looking forward to the next one.

I know pretty much nothing about forensics, but even so I've basically given up on cop shows resembling anything close to reality. As long as the dialogue is snappy and the characters are likeable, I can deal. And while I loved DB as Angel, I was pleasantly surprised by how much charisma he has in this. He's got great comic timing, I think, and it's nice to see him in a role that takes advantage of that. Yay Bones!

I'm looking forward to the next ep as well, and boy has it been a while since I could say something like that.

Pilots are so jam-packed with exposition that they're not always a good representation of whether a show is going to be good or not.

Right. The exposition was a bit heavy-handed at times but I didn't mind, because the main thing: I like the characters. I don't really expect perfection from pilots, just potential. Few pilots are truely brilliant, most just make me stop watching right away (The DS9 pilot... just awful, turned me off the show for years). This one surprised me in a good way :)
