Yikes. Run a Lost repeat and there's a mighty big hole here on ol' FMS. I'd like to say that things will pick up soon, but what with the dismal state of television right now, I just don't know. I'm halfway through a British DVD to review and am reading a clever little book, so those are upcoming. True Blood S2 will finally be out on DVD in May and I plan to recap those episodes - am looking forward to a little trashy, Southern vampire/werewolf action, frankly. And later this summer, Mr. Mouse and I are going to dive into Big Love (ahem - the HBO series, you perverts). Seems only fitting since we live out in Utah now.
What else is going on? Since I'm a glutton for punishment, I'm still watching V and Flashforward ... and they're just sooooooooo bad. So bad. I can't even talk about it. Slightly better is the first episode of ABC's Happy Town, which seems to be a cross between Twin Peaks and Harper's Island. It seems to be trying a little too hard to be edgy and weird, and some of the acting is Not Very Good. But hopefully Amy Acker will be given more to do, because I always like her, and Sam Neill is creepily charming/charmingly creepy as always. I have slight hopes for this series but daren't get too attached. Finally, Justified is still holding both Mr. Mouse's and my attention - amazingly - and while I don't think that these subsequent episodes have lived up to the promise of the pilot and the story-of-the-weeks get wrapped up pretty neatly, I find many of the characters interesting and fun to watch and the dialogue is usually strong.
So that's it for now. Sorry it's been so slacktastic around here, and what with company coming for the long weekend, there most likely won't be any updates until Lost next week. Y'all come back and visit us then, y'hear?
