Sweet Charity is winding down...  
Bidding ends at 7pm Eastern/4pm Pacific in the U.S. Be on your toes, everyone! And I look forward to seeing what my winners have in store for me. :D

Last night's House, M.D. was... awesome. Such an unusual story, even for this show, and I loved the execution. All the ads at the end for "Next week's show is the kind that comes along once every few seasons - don't miss it!" seemed almost ironic, because I felt like I'd just finished watching that episode. If next week's is even better, then I'm psyched!

Must remember to Torrent last Friday's Sarah Connor Chronicles, since I didn't set up the DVR Friday morning (we had a date, and I didn't go home beforehand). And we've got last night's Chuck still waiting. :D

And Reaper! Reaper is new again tonight. I find this season intriguing, especially with these expanded glimpses of the Devil exercising his role as a temptor. In the season premiere, he was masquerading as the host of an AA meeting, and it made me cringe and laugh at the same time: "For this week, I want you all to go to a bar and order your favorite drink. And then... I want you to walk away! By walking away, you'll prove that you've conquered your problem with alcohol." :0

Oh, Reaper is definitely fun! It's very different from SPN (in fact, the whole "universe" works in a completely different way), which is why it confounds me when my husband keeps poking me to write crossovers.

The snarkage and the bizarre are hilarious, and Ray Wise as the Devil is just casting genius. Alternately cheesy, charming, dangerous and high-spirited, it's a thorougly cracktastic performance. Try it, please!

And everyone and their sister's recommended TSCC to me. *makes more notes* ;)
If it helps any, the show was interesting and full of action-fun in its first season, but it's gotten even deeper and more intriguing in its second. We started watching it simply because it was on and it looked interesting, and really got hooked.

For Prison Break, everything after Season One is pure pain, and even S1 isn't for everyone. I got into it for the brotherly devotion and the side-characters (Warden Pope! Westmoreland! Reverend Maillor!), but the concept is fairly preposterous and there's a certain ADD aspect to the storytelling that just isn't for everyone.

In fact, someone read the crack version of the beginning of S3 that I wrote and said, "It keeps switching back and forth between the characters, over and over again" and I said, "Like the actual show!"

After you watch Sarah Connor, come read my thoughts about the show and share your opinion. I'm curious about what you think of it as it's winding up it's second season.

I'm hoping to Torrent it tonight, and I hope I'll get a chance to watch it before this Friday so I don't have a huge backlog.

What will I do next week when we're at Disneyland?!? Though I'm hoping some of the shows will be repeats that week.

It took me two weeks to get caught up after I got back from Disneyland. During regular programming is a terrible time to go on vacation....I feel your pain!

Oh yes, I couldn't agree more - both about House and Reaper. I've just watched the latest episode of House, and it's brilliant! As for the Reaper, gotta love the Devil)))) I love the new undertones of his and Sam's relationship, with this whole father/son issue.

Wasn't House amazing? I loved the approach to that episode-- a huge element of outside POV in the story-telling, and we've never had that strongly before. Just fantastic.

I'm loving all the new developments in Reaper this season, including in last night's episode, and I can't mention any of them here for fear of spoilerism but still-- all of the fun of S1 with some interesting and thorny new directions!
