NEW & NOTABLE:
FLASHPOINT (9PM CBS, CTV in Canada)
In the latest installment of what not to do during the mortgage meltdown, three men take the CEO of a mortgage company hostage after they lose all their money in a mortgage scheme.

  • The 3rd episode of Dollhouse was a slight improvement over the last two, but that’s not saying much. I’m still not totally onboard with this show yet. I might give it 2 or 3 more episodes, but then I think I might be done with it.

    Sarah Connor Chronicles was pretty good. It was a little confusing what was real and was a dream, and it didn’t have a lot of forward direction for the overall conflict. But, it is interesting to see them explore the psychological effects of constantly delaying the inevitable apocalypse.

    BSG was a little on the slow, quiet, and cryptic side this week. It seems like there’s not much time left to learn the rest of the Cylon backstory, the ultimate fate of the human race, and the answer to the question about why Roslin shares dreams with Cylons and what exactly Starbuck is (a clone, a female Daniel, a daughter of a Daniel, or something else). If after all this, they violate the show-don’t-tell rule again for another rapidly-spoken Anders infodump, I might be a little disappointed.
