    That was fun.

    Like getting back together with an old friend.
    Watching The X Files is like watching the internet in TV form. I don't know what to think of it yet....

    I'm excited, but wary.

    I'd like to see them go back another generation each season. Like next season could be the rise of Papa Gerhart.

    Watched the first episode of Mercy Street, I'm a huge Civil War geek, had heard it didn't contain a whole lot of Civil War stuff which wasn't the case. Didn't love it but liked it enough to watch a second episode.

    Anybody watch War and Peace? I'm kind of figuring I will wait until all 4 episodes are out and then will watch them all at once.

    I also dvr'd Beowulf last night on Esquire network.

    Saw the upcoming commercial for the spring Amazing Race the only reality show I watch and they are having teams of You Tube Celebrities oh brother. I almost stopped watching last year when the did the blind dating teams versus the existing couples but probably won't watch this potential disaster.

    I'm convinced the writers wrote the script while taking Adderall. Nothing else explains the ten minute fascination with that letter opener.

Not sure if the format will get repetitive or not but I'm going to try a few more eps.
    Be sure to watch the episodes where they play Countdown.

    To be fair, Dr. Mrs. strongly disagrees and thinks it was great. I just have an extremely low tolerance for cliche home soap operas (Will the tension drive the parents apart? Will the entitled children learn their parents are not automatic happiness dispensers and are also just struggling from day to day? Will the Dream Boyfriend turn out to have a dark side?)

    I am super paranoid that whenever THE MAN gets hold of a good concept he just slaps it as New Jersey brickface onto the same old boring domestic drama house.

Just the usual paint by-numbers family soap opera, stuck into what would be an interesting premise if you didn't have to slog through 55 dull cliche minutes to get a combined 5 minutes of that premise. It didn't help that the acting was spectacularly awful except for the guy who played the plastic surgeon adulterer on House.
