Finally catching up on the final season of 24. Damnit, now I won't be able to sleep. I keep warning myself to stay away but I just don't seem to have much self-control. :bicker:

That is a pity, but unfortunately, not unexpected. Entertainment weekly was doing a profile of the series that fizzled after great starts. Awake was there as it became another police procedural after the Big Bang of its premise -which it did not have time to explore, unfortunately. Touch was also there, Smash, and others. There are more pilots coming but doe snot abode well. In the meantime, reality series -the Clint Eastwood family, anyone?- keep on mushrooming... Yuck.

SPN was renovated for the 8th -and one hopes- final season.

Finally: CSI Miami Cancelled.

Now let's continue killing with the original. We can keep NY for a while, the series is smart and Gary Sinise is a keeper.

Oh, and they cancelled a Gifted Man, which is currently playing in Taiwan. It wasn't that bad.

Alphas look cool. It's like heroes, only with people who seem more likable.

They will start playing Ringer here in Taiwan. Gellar usually plays in good stuff.

Really enjoyed it for the most part. Couple of dud episodes - the Mother one, bleurgh - but some very good ones - the dude who can get everyone raging and beating each other mercilessly sticks out.

And in sad (Cruel. Cruel cruel cruel.) news, Dan Harmon has been booted from the beautifully wonderful Community.
If you doubt this is possible, how is it there are PYGMIES + DWARFS??

Watched Bophali just know and wonder how many other US Zionist companies as Union Carbide are still out there scrutinizing the poor for bottom line profits.
Good to know - 25 years after the disaster neither Dow nor the Indian government gives a further damn about the ongoing pollution.
I’m a dog shaped ashtray
I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo
I’m a movie with no plot, written in the back seat of a piss powered taxi
I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song
I’m a yellow tooth waltzing with wrap around shades on

I am Europe
