Mystery/Scifi/Action/Stuff Nobody Cares About/Whatever
I was seriously considering writing a full post on Jericho because of how much I've fallen in love with the show the last few months. It started off "okay" in the Fall, but not great and I admit that when it came back in the Spring I let a few episodes stack up in TiVo before I dug into it again. In other words, I wasn't exactly sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for it to return. And apparently, neither was anyone else. Even though it's been an amazing show in the second half of the season, the winter hiatus killed it. And the finale was a great cliffhanger too. Between this and Drive, I'm starting to hate TV. I hope Skeet Ulrich finds another show quickly. The world needs Skeet Ulrich TV shows, even if it doesn't know it.
In that same link above, CBS also announces that The Unit has been picked up for another season, which is excellent news. I don't think it's as strong a show as Jericho had become in terms of the plot's direction and consistently making me anticipate the next episode, but the missions are always exciting and I love Scott Foley even more than Skeet. And The Unit's finale was an even bigger nailbiter than Jericho's was.
Also in that link: The Class has been cancelled, but Rules of Engagement has been renewed. I laughed harder at The Class than Rules, and I liked its plot and characters better, so I'm sad to see it go, but I'm glad that I'll be able to keep getting a weekly dose of Patrick Warburton and Megyn Price. Oliver Hudson was just starting to get comfortable in his role towards the end of this season too, so it'll be nice to see if that continues. David Spade's character needs some attention in the writing department, but Spade's doing a good job with what he has to work with.
And if I need to laugh really hard, I still have The Office and Scrubs.
I mentioned this at Comic World News, but it's pretty cool so I want to share it here too. Image Comics is putting out a jigsaw puzzle of one of the covers of the Elephantmen comic. Even if you don't read the comic, you have to love this image of a trenchcoated hippo walking through the rain-soaked streets of a cyberpunk city.
