Weekend TV roundup

Dang, I keep meaning to update, and I start composing entries in my head, and then when I actually have time to write them down I can't remember what I was going to say anymore.

Uh...

Hmmmm.

Well, I guess it's a given that the season finale of BSG blew my mind. It's amazing that I have cognitive function at all, the number of times that show's blown my mind. I kept waiting for the Bobby-in-the-shower moment (if you don't get that reference you're not as old as me--or not as much of a TV junkie) but (thankfully) it never came. The bad thing, though, was that the episode ran slightly over so Frodo cut off right as Baltar was asking the Cylons what they wanted. There may have been some screaming in the Sus household. So, yeah, I paid $1.99 to download the whole damn episode in iTunes so I could see the last two minutes. It was so worth it, though.

Sunday's Grey's Anatomy was good. Natalie Cole was absolutely amazing. And I worship Bailey and her "I can't solve a problem unless there's a problem to solve, is there a problem?" death stare. And how hilarious was Teddy Dunn as the hockey guy? I think dumbass jock is just about the limit of his acting range. But ya'll, I have to say, I sort of agree with Meredith on the "It takes two to make a bad sexual decision" thing. Not that it excuses that absurd laughing business, but George should have known better. Meredith has been obviously fucked up ever since Mrs. Dr. McDreamy showed up and anyone who throws themselves at a person in that state... well, they kinda made their own bed, you know?

As for West Wing... There's a not a lot I can say that hasn't already been bandied about the internets a million times over since Sunday. I really liked all the Josh/Donna stuff, though. The kiss was HOT, and I loved how Josh pushed the door shut but they were smoothly standing apart by the time Santos walked in. The thing with the key was a nice touch in terms of seeing Donna finally taking the lead. And I loved Josh's look to her at the end. Here's my thing, though... Why does he need the key at all? If he was gonna take the key, why couldn't he just go upstairs and discretely knock on her door instead? Can she not open it from the inside? And if he doesn't have the guts to do that, why can't Donna go knock on his damn door and tell him it's time to put up or shut up?

The really exciting news, however, is that there is a new Bones tonight AND a new Veronica Mars and THEY'RE NOT ON AT THE SAME TIME so I can actually TiVo both. Can I get a hallelujah, people? And as if that wasn't good enough, Adam Baldwin's guesting on Bones!

Stupid BSG. I watched it live, but I realized when I was burning it to DVD for skywaterblue that the last bit was chopped. :(

(Oh! And in answer to that... on the tivo website, if you go to tivo desktop, you can DL a program to get the show from tivo to your computer. Then B went and purchased a program called Sonic to edit and actually burn the DVD. He claims it was about $50-$75, which if you're like me, is totally worth it. Does that help with the tivo to DVD thing you were asking the other day?)

I wondered that same thing about the key. What happened to knocking?!

This is exactly what I said. Who needs a key? It's pretty obvious that she's going to open the door for him. Heh. So could it be that since Donna got the key back, she thinks Josh is saying no? Hrm.

I'll be on a plane while VM is on, but I'm excited at the prospect that it'll be waiting for me when I get home. SQUEE!

I didn't see the key as anything more than the unspoken invitation. Then when the girls returned it, Donna took that as a *rejection* of the invitation. I don't think the point was that he needed it.

So, what we don't see, is does he go up and discreetly knock or even call her to explain. My assupmtion is he doesn't. So Donna goes back to acting like there's nothing going on, perhaps to the point of snubbing him a bit. Which will make him crazy and wackiness ensues.

And Adam Baldwin. This is gonna be good. I've got fic percolating without even having see the eppy. Booth-Brennan-Jayne love triangel! What could be possibly be better?

The Cylons marching down the Champs Elysee gave me goosebumps. I've read that a lot of people had the last little bit cut off, so I'm wondering what the heck happened in the Mountain Time Zone--for a change, we actually made out like bandits and got the whole thing. The Brother, who saw the ep before I did and therefore got to watch me watch it, would like to have it known that when Doral, Six, and Boomer marched onto Colonial One, I apparently shouted, "You cheese-eating surRENder monkey!" I have no recollection of this. ;)

Thanks for the Adam Baldwin heads-up--I would have missed him and then been very sad. :noodles off to put a Jaynehat on the to-knit list:
