A commenter in the previous thread asked me if I was on vacation. I wish. There's just bupkus going on in TV right now. It's so massively boring.
I go home at night and find washing the dishes to be more entertaining than the TV.
I tried to watch "Burn Notice's" season premiere last night, but I knew the entire plot after watching about 15 seconds. I think they borrowed it from the "A-Team."
Maybe if I had Showtime, I could be watching "Secret Diary of a Call Girl." They did send the first couple "Weeds" episodes, but those were fairly dull, too.
Now, the new season of "Top Gear" begins Monday on BBC America. That's exciting. But there's not a ton beyond that.
A lot of the current malaise is still strike-related. The usual round of misfits and reality shows and a smattering of quality cable shows that usually occupy the summer never got made.
Fortunately, the Olympics are a few weeks away and NBC is planning 2,500 hours of coverage. That should soak up some TV time. And after that, we'll be in football season...
