Brain damage for the masses

The Fall TV season is upon us. God(dess) help us all!

I think I am going to try to pare down my TV viewing as far as I can this season. It leaves me so unfulfilled, and I need to read more anyhows. So I stop using words like "anyhows", ya see.

So this is what I am planning to watch for the upcoming season:

Prison Break - It's really good, even when it seems as if they introduce way too many plot lines and characters in almost every single episode. Frenetic and edgy, it's what TV should be. Fun.

Heroes - but it's going to have to get a lot better. Quickly. There are way too many characters to give a shit about here. Shame, because ten/fifteen years ago I would have given Slyde's right testicle for a TV show about superheroes in the real world. I'm gonna give it 2 or 3 more episodes. So buck the fuck up, Heroes!

NCIS - for those of you who don't know, I have an unhealthy attraction to Ms. Pauley Perrette and this is my only outlet. Forgive me.

Survivor: China - 'natch. I don't think this one will ever get boring with me. Slyde has been trying to get on for years, but they seem to have a quota of just one annoying person from Long Island every season. It's been filled this year by Ashley - the WWE Diva/wrestler.

And that's all I got. Sure, I will probably watch more TV than this in any given week. But it's mostly shows that I don't NEED to watch. Stuff like How I Met Your Mother, Law and Order: SVU and The Office. Oh, and random stuff on The Discovery Channel and The History Channel. All good stuff, but if I miss it...I miss it.

This will all change come January when The Amazing Race and Lost begin, but until then...

Is Mark Harmon Pauly's dad?

I am canceling my cable for a few months so I can get back to reading, and doing stuff with the munchkin.

I will count on you to fill in the details.

Kat - post more than three times in a 3 month period, and I will stop by more often. ;)

Jiggs - It's good...maybe not as good as Ricky Gervais...

Slyde - I'm thinking about it.

Mel - He's her boss, silly. And I betcha she would love to jump his bones.

Madge - You're telling me?
