Random Musings for a Monday

Six episodes into HBO’S JOHN FROM CINCINNATI, I have yet to decide whether I love the show or loathe it. One thing I do know — I still am clueless as to what exactly’s going on and the real deal with the mysterious John.

Speaking of clueless, over the weekend at the TCA Press Tour, Fox President Peter Liguori failed to acknowledge that last season of 24 had some serious issues claiming, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ Which begs the question, is it possible Mr. Liguori only watched the first four hours of last season? Fans and critics pretty much agree, it was all downhill from there.

And finally, how realistic (and entertaining) was Thursday’s premiere of MAD MEN? So much so that halfway through the episode, this TV Addict was ready to take up smoking. Drinking at work! Smoking on the job! Sexually harassing the women in the office! Boy did the 60’s look like fun. Who else can’t wait for next week’s episode?

    My own random musing on SUPERNATURAL: What a shame that Erik Kripke felt compelled to explain himself, regarding the two cast additions and direction of the show. I get so sick of fans whining about plotlines and show-demises before they’ve even seen an episode. We love the show because of the creative genius Kripke brings, and no show can survive forever with just two characters. “Fans” calling for boycotts, writing hate notes on blogs…what kind of stupd are you, anyway? The girls are great actresses and I’m sure they’ll only enhance a great series. It’s amazing how some vocal kooks think they “own” the show or something. Hey, if you don’t like the direction it takes, go watch the Grey’s Sleeparound or CSI: Monotony. But if you care about Sam and Dean, shut up and enjoy them.

    My 2 cents: People are still watching John from Cincinnati? Every time I flip past it, I’m not compelled in any way to stay on the channel and every time I hear about it in a blog or magazine all I hear is that no one gets it. THEN STOP WATCHING IT! I don’t think this is one of those situations where there will be a pay-off but you will lose hours of your life that you will never get back.
