In the shape of an "L" on her forehead...  
My god, I'm lame...

So, as part of being in a fog for the entire month of August, I haven't really adjusted to it being September yet. And in the back of my mind, I knew "intellectually" that the SPN Season Premiere was Sept. 10, but it still didn't register as being TODAY! *gasps*

Normally, I'd probably have it marked on the calendar and be all a-squee. Mostly, I'm just nervous that Kripke's going to ruin the show this year, because I didn't care much for S4 at all (I'm not a fan of the Apocalypse arc), and this year looks like more of the same except possibly with less Sam&Dean, which would be terrible. Not trying to harsh anyone's excitement, just being honest. But at least I'll BE there for the event, and not "Lalalalala-ing" around with DVD's of "The Closer" while it's airing. :0

Because here's the other thing... in recent years, SO many shows have pushed their premieres off into October that I'm not ready for the Prime Time season to start at all! And our newspaper stopped delivering the free weekly TV schedules, which I'm about to fork over 25-cents more for right now as soon as I can find out where that is on their webpage.

So f-list, tell me: HAVE I MISSED ANYTHING ELSE?

A lot of my beloved shows were cancelled this year (the quirky ones, mostly), and I didn't watch much on NBC anyway (which is going for ratings-suicide this year with the all-Jay-Leno programming). But! Anything I should know about on network television?

I have got to climb up out of my hole more often! August was a very rough month...

I am not sure what you watch but so far Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, Monk, Psych are all airing new. I don't think much else has started, most things seem slated for the third week of September.

We don't have cable, so I'm only worried about network TV right now.

For the cable stuff, I usually pick it up seasons after the fact on DVD. And wish they'd do the turnaround faster!

I watch Chuck, House, Lie To Me, and The Mentalist, in addition to the L&O shows.

I think Reaper got cancelled (*cries*), and I know Pushing Daisies and Terminator:SCC did (*cries more*).

Stupid network executives. :(

Nope, I think you're all good there. Cable is the only stuff that started in August. House is 9/26 or there about and I am not sure about the others but I am pretty sure late September.

Thanks for the help!

I am SO ancient that I remember the days when all Prime Time TV kicked off right after Labor Day. And there was no cable. :0

I wish I were more certain Kripke were going to focus on the Sam&Dean this season, but I've lost faith in him. I think he's become a Dean/Castiel shipper, and that is so not why I watch the show. *bites nails*

At least I'll be ready, now that I'm clued into the date and what it means!

Which also means that it's time to adjust the DVR to undo the "time creep" it's acquired since last spring. It's about 20 minutes into the future right now, I think. Now WHY an electronic device in this day and age should have "time creep" is beyond me. That's lame!

Have you heard about the Twitter/Supernatural controversy?

Hee! Thanks for the link-- that made for awesome reading.

I love Misha's suggestion of a retaliation tag. Oh, it fits. ;)
