leverage team carnival

(no subject)

Wow, ya'll, 30 Rock was not funny. I'm not sure what happened there, because I'm pretty sure Tina Fey can write better than that. And what was the deal with the tri-vection oven thing? Seriously, I thought they made it up until they showed a commercial for the damn thing. They're mocking NBC/GE at the same time as they're whoring Tina Fey out to sell stoves? The hell?

I finally got around to watching this week's Heroes, which was slightly less clunky, thanks to Jeph Loeb's writing on this episode. I only wish he was the showrunner and not Tim Kring, and then maybe I could bring myself to care more. I still want Porn Mom and Invincible Cheerleader to Just. Go. Away. Porn Mom, because she takes her kid with her to bury dead bodies in the desert. And Invincible Cheerleader for having two accidents in two weeks that would have been fatal to anyone sans superpowers (not even counting the Gross Disposer Incident). What. Ever.

The new fall season is so uninspiring that Studio 60 is honestly the best new show I've seen, for all its flaws.
