The time is finally upon us, my little tv addicts, the fall season is finally upon us. Breathe it in, really enjoy the salty sweetness of time well wasted. Let’s begin shall we…
*Avatar in 3D IMAX = best 14.50 ever spent. The Deathly Hallows trailer in IMAX also worth the 14.50.
*Casting lesson #30,978: Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher are better in theory than in practice.
*After a long, impatient summer, Sons of Anarchy came back with a vengeance, quite literally. I am continually amazed at Kurt Sutter‘s genius way of balance raw human emotion with the violence of a life spent serving Samcro. I can’t handle week after week of this emo, numb Jax. Hopefully, his outburst in the final moments of the premiere will lead to less brooding and more doing.
*Vampire Diaries is back! Vampire Diaries is back! Did I mention Vampire Diaries is back? I don’t think I have ever said “oh my God” so many times during a television show before. Kevin Williamson is showing a Joss Whedon-esque lack of fear in his execution of this new season of TVD. Ruthless is the word that best describes the premiere. I love that Stefan remembered he was a vampire over the summer. And Damon continues to be heartbreaking as ever. The man just needs a hug and probably some kind of vampire valum. Someone has to love him best…The true winner of the night is Nina Dobrev who proved she was more than just a pretty face by channeling her inner sadistic bitch. Katherine is a force to be reckoned with and I imagine she shall be all season long if we’re lucky.
*Nikita is worth a watch. It’s nothing we haven’t seen before and it certainly isn’t going to blow anybody’s mind, but it has potential. And for a CW show, that’s really all you can ask for.
*The CW finally released a real trailer for the upcoming season of Supernatural, which I have watched approximately 3,219 times. Check it out below and watch the Season 6 premiere of SPN September 24.
*Jane Lynch made the best cameo ever as Sam’s crazy deadbeat mother on iCarly tonight. If there ever was a time to watch Nickelodeon, now would be that time.
*Why are Spencer and Heidi still news?
*Holy crap, Psych! If you haven’t seen the summer finale yet, I’ll just say this, DO NOT MISS THE LAST FIVE MINUTES! You were warned…
*Ditto for White Collar.
*Ditto for Drop Dead Diva – apparently this is the summer of the cliff hanger.
All right, back to my Merlin induced stupor. I should have known I’d get sucked into this show from the jump…Is that my goodnight’s sleep disappearing into Camelot?
