To the degree that one can accurately call anything the beginning of a season in this year-round TV world of ours, the first series of the new season starts tonight (Prison Break, which I do have hopes for.) And thus, it is time to discuss my plans for this season.
I’m gonna try to watch new shows. A lot of them. But I’m not going to be religious about it.
Ever since the baby was born, time has been less flexible. Watching anything live is hard, as the baby interrupts. Waching things casually during the day while doing light work on the computer is hard because the baby is there, and we’re trying to avoid turning her into a TV-watching creature. (Yes, we expect her to watch TV in the fullness of time, but we do not want that to be What She Is About.) What time I have needs to be focused on other things. So expect fewer reviews, and often briefer reviews. These days, I often only get around to blogging something a week after it’s in the brain, since there are so many things that want t0 be done when I have uninterrupted computer time.
Really, I’ll watch things sanely. I won’t miss the returning must-sees or traditionally-watched shows (with the key returning network shows being Veronica Mars, Arrested Development, Scrubs, and Two-and-a-Half Men, in that order, with things like Malcolm in the Middle and The Simpsons filling in the no-longer-as-compelling-but-traditionally-watched category.)
Life, with television in it. Not a bad idea, eh?
