Fall TV is back!

It's baaaaaack. 

Last night was the first full night of NEW television in quite some time, and to this point it hasn't disappointed.  Unfortunately, due to my schedule I have to catch shows a day or two after through Tivo or ::GASP:: VCR....but I managed to get in Heroes and Prison Break  (second episode) this morning, and both were good TV.

Heroes was a minor letdown in it's finale last May, but I felt like this premiere took the show in another good direction, with better potential than it's breakout first season.  I was glad to see David Anders on TV again (he was in Alias), though I'm probably not as big of a fan as some of those who have followed his career for much longer. 

The episode mixed a lot of little humorous moments, but mainly spent it's time getting us adjusted to the new situations our heroes are in.....I particularly enjoy the fact that NBC now has two shows that have a focus on the paper industry (I thought the fact HRG was in a copy shop was a little more akin to The Office and Dunder Mifflin, even though he was sort of at a paper factory last season.

I'm interested to see where the Honduras fugitives fit into the story.  My Tivo was so dark, I couldn't really see what the girl managed to do to all those guys she killed....I'm assuming we'll discover her power later, unless I just didn't see it the first time.

Moving on, Prison Break's  second episode continued to keep me entertained.  I'm curious about Whistler, and I'm excited to see what Michael cooks up this time.  His tactics to get the water flowing in the yard showed shades of Season 1 material, which is a VERY good thing.  I hope they can keep this story up for the whole season, because it could turn out to be better than anyone expected it to be.  I still really miss having Sarah around as a main character.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she'll actually show up in person at some point.  I can have a little hope, can't I? 

If I get some time, I'll get some official recaps written, but I can't guarantee that.  There's so much TV and so little time to write about it, I might stick to little blurbs here and there.

Jurassic Park IV

You know, I thought the rumor of Jurassic Park 4 being based on the idea that dinosaurs would be trained to carry weapons and kill was a silly joke, but apparently it's going to be made....for now.

I'm not sure how they plan on making it believable, or even watchable after the embarrassment of Jurassic Park 3.

How can the people behind it possibly see it as profitable?!

Weekend Outlook

The summer is winding down, and this weekend the main new release movie that is garnering attention is Rush Hour 3.

I've been a fan of the last two outings, Rush Hour 2 in particular because it greatly improved on the original and was very funny...I'm curious to see how the box-office reacts to this third installment. Typically, franchises have gotten huge on the third installments, but the quality of the movie suffered compared to previous tries. (I'm thinking Spiderman 3, Pirates 3, Shrek 3...)

I'm going to keep the bar set low and hope for the best, which is all I can do at this point. I've been riding a pretty good streak to this point, and most movies have been great for the past couple of months. Perhaps Rush Hour 3 will continue that trend.....

We'll see after this weekend.

Lack of Updates

I apologize if anyone attends this site on a regular basis.  It's pretty much a lull right now until fall TV returns, so expect sporadic updates at best....

Look for my posts to return in full-force around a month from now...

The Dark Knight Teaser

So the teaser trailer for The Dark Knight popped up online yesterday, though it wasn't at Comic-Con....

There's no footage, which is disappointing, but the reveal of Heath Ledger's Joker-voice was pretty darn good if you ask me....

Check it out for yourself....
