Quick TV update

xmas me
The new fall TV season is upon us, and...er, I haven't been keeping up. I can say that Castle is still ridiculous and needs to avoid conspiracy theories, but, you know, Stana Katic in a bra, not a bad look; Revenge is still unexpectedly, marvelously over the top and awesome (I mean, really. This season started with Exploded Boat, Dead Floating Arm, and Scuba Divers in its first minute and a half, in but the first of many, many over the top moments, with bonus Mysterious Dude With British Accent); for all of my praise of Revenge's over the top moments, 666 Park Avenue needs to learn that less is more, and that violins are very very expensive and should not be gratuitously smashed just because you think a demon isn't going to let you leave your apartment, and, sure, I realize New York City has housing issues but let's be realistic for a moment, so I probably won't be bothering with the rest of the show; enough people have asked me to snark Revolution (which, no, I haven't seen yet) that I am genuinely concerned; and Allo! Allo! is still hilarious and David Suchet is a great Poirot.

(What?)

So, still forthcoming on the blog, possibly: comments on season two of Game of Thrones, comments on Grimm, and Mari Gets Annoyed at Once Upon a Time again without even seeing this season yet. (I caught the last minute while turning on the TV for Revenge. And, oh, yes, if I can brave it, snark on Revolution. It can't be as bad as you are all saying, can it?

(I'm holding off on Elementary for a bit as well.)

Regarding ELEMENTARY... based on the pilot, you can wait as long as you like. :P

Yeah, what I've been hearing from people has not been filled with enough enthusiasm to get me to rush to the CBS site to watch.

I have a total girl crush on Stana Katic!

She is gorgeous, although I wish they'd let her look more like a cop.

I watched Elementary and am not yet convinced but I'll give it a few episodes to find it's legs. Still very pissed at turning Watson from a decorated war veteran surgeon into a de-licensed for malpractice ex surgeon who never served, motherfuckers!!!!!!

Revolution is a show Tig's liking but there's so much obvious flaws that I have to leave the room. Even ignoring the fact that supposedly all electricity stopped for no apparant reason, is there no fire, no steam engines, did all the books on industrial age and everything vanish too?????

I am _almost_ intrigued by all of the negative comments about Revolution's worldbuilding. Almost. Having said that it does sound more interesting than tonight's presidential debate.

I was kinda interested in Elementary but it's been getting a very meh response from a lot of people.
