Monday Monday

Alan Sepinwall had this to say about last night's "Heroes": "the entire episode, and much of this season, falls under Ebert's Idiot Plot rule, where the only way the story works is if as many characters as possible act like idiots." Which is probably more analysis than that episode deserved. Blech.

My main disappointment is that only two heroes will fall next week. I could lose a baker's dozen off the top and be none the worse for wear. Peter- you're at the top of the list, bucko.

It's not right to root for the good guys to not just lose, but actually die. It's not what you'd call a good sign. But man, Alejandro had that coming.

Anyhoo, good "Chuck" episode. BTW, "Chuck" just got a full-season pickup, although what that means here in strike-ville is anybody's guess. Still a good sign for a good show. Loved the pineapple scene. Loved all the scenes with Chuck himself in them, which is odd since I generally prefer the supporting cast in this one. Loved Adam Baldwin. But you knew that. Hated all the kick-fighting in the Buy More. Did these people forget that they brought guns?

And a good HIMYM. Lesbian prison guard.Yips. Baseball. Good times.

Good news about Chuck... that means I can actually invest some time in watching the show. Loved the first one, haven't watched it since. But will now. Maybe. If they decide to end the strike sometime this lifetime.

Speaking of... what's the latest? Weren't they supposed to moozey back up to the table and start yapping at each other yesterday?

Code of silence over the talks in Hollywood. There's a rumor the framework for a deal is in place and the thing could be done before Christmas. There's a counter-rumor that the first rumor was floated by the studios so they could blame the writers if the strike continues. We shall see.
