Doctor Who: I'm so sad. I loved the last Doctor (Nine, I believe?) immediately. Christopher Eccleston! What's not to love? Sadly, I've watched two episodes of the new Doctor (David Tennant), and I think the magic is gone, at least for me. :-( Have to admit though, that "The Face of Bo" is a totally cool character name. Also, the Doctor and Rose need to get a room, already. Gag me. ;-p

Eureka: Yay! It appears as though the "Henry's leaving!" thing was just a ploy to make me crazy. Also, it appears as though Allison has come to her senses and has turned her affections back to Carter, where they belong. Yayness!

Runway: I still hate Jeffrey, but I loved his dress. The soft denim blue velvet looked lovely against the deep red belt. I liked the soft bubble shape of the skirt. The halter looked a bit weird in the closeup shots, but overall, I thought the design was cute.

Studio 60: I like this show, but I'm not too sure about Harriet. I'm not a big fan of the ex-boy/girlfriend ohmygoshhowwillweworktogether! thing, but I'm willing to give it a chance. I'm really impressed with Matthew Perry in his role. I've loved Steven Weber since his days on Wings, so yay! All in all, I'll probably watch again.

I know!!! :( I thought Christopher was excellent;he grabbed me in the first scene. He made me stay all the way through. Tennent isn't bad...he's just Christopher. bah

He was *so* good. He was humorous without going overboard, and when he was serious he was *intensely* serious. I think that's what I'll miss most about him. He was perfect. :-(

I was loving every minute of Matthew too. And wow. I've never come across anyone who was into Steven Weber. Usually folks are like, "Who?". I frickin' love him. :)

He's a comic genius! I loved the entire cast, but he definitely made Wings for me.

Sadly, I've watched two episodes of the new Doctor (David Tennant), and I think the magic is gone, at least for me. :-(

I thought that the first two episodes were the weakest of the series (um...are you counting The Christmas Invasion as the first? In which case, make it 'the first three'). After that, there are some absolute *crackers* -- really amazingly good. I got to love Tennant's Doctor as the series went on, and the writers do some great stuff with him which would never have worked with Ecclestone's Doctor.

The first three, then. I think only two aired last night (including 'Christmas Invasion'). If three were aired, I certainly didn't stick around to see the third. ;-)

I *am* glad to hear that the three weakest episodes have already aired, because I was as let down by the plotlines as I was the new Doctor. I'll give it another chance next week!

Okay. Then the next episode is the last one which I didn't like so much (although I'm cheap and easy, and was partly pacified by nice special effects, which still always surprise me on Doctor Who after being raised on cardboard sets and rubber monsters). But after that, the series really starts to take off. I can't say any more because of spoilers, but do keep watching.

I missed Eureka this week. What happened? I was sick when I heard that Henry was leaving because they have a really good ensemble going and I hate when they play with the chemistry this early in a new show.

Ska-wheeee! Too bad I've already erased this from my DVR qeue, because this would be an *excellent* excuse to watch the ep again. :-D

It was an okay episode, plotwise, but the personal stuff more than made up for it. Some of the middle bits may be slightly out of sequence, but it doesn't really matter!

After Henry's declaration that he's leaving Eureka, Carter gets all depressed and starts thinking about leaving himself. He calls in sick for a couple of days, and it's hilarious when they show him adding beer to his cereal instead of milk. ;-) After Zoe leaves for school, Carter asks Sarah!the!house to show him properties in other towns so that he and Zoe can move.

Sarah is concerned, so she sends out fake calls/pages in Carter's name (using his voice) to Allison, Jo, Beverly, Henry, Fargo, and Nathan Stark, asking each of them to come to the house because of a bogus emergency. With the exception Jo, they all arrive within a few seconds of each other. Just before they arrive however, the pizza guy shows up, so he's there when they all arrive. As soon as everyone's inside, Sarah closes and locks the front door. They're trapped!

During the next few minutes, Sarah tells them that Henry's and then Carter's departure will cause very bad things to happen to Eureka and then the world. She shows them scenarios of Awful Stuff!, all of it because Henry and Carter are necessary to the on-going good health of the town.

They freak out and try thinking of ways to escape. Jo, meanwhile, has been out playing paintball with Taggart (GAG me, what a waste of a character), and if I *never* see an old guy with dentures mooning over a gorgeous young girl again, it will be too soon. Anyway, because they were late and the house is already sealed, Sarah won't let them in.

The next bits are all of them kind of interacting with each other, no real revelations except Henry elaborates on his feelings of being used by the government and he's sick of it. Turns out that Stark was one of his students at one time, and that's another thing that's disappointed him, that Stark's turned into a government suit rather than continuing his promising career as an actual scienist.

Allison and Beverly talk some more about the events from the last episode. Beverly talks to Fargo. Eventually the boys split off to try to solve the problem. Either Beverly or Allison (can't remember which) comments on that, that the men are trying to save the day. Cute. ;-)

The men try something with the power that uncovers the fact that Sarah was programmed on top of an existing government interrogation program, and it isn't exactly friendly. It treats them like real prisoners, and it has a number of interrogation tactics that become increasingly not fun. At one point the living room is sealed into two sections, with Carter and Allison on one side and everyone else on the other. The everyone!else side starts overheating, and Allison and Carter's side drops below zero. This causes them to snuggle (YAY!). Stark is observing this from the other side, and dare I say he almost looks resigned. YAY!

That's basically the show. Eventually they realize that they have to make nice to one another before the house will let them out, but they have to actually *mean* it. More talking, problems are resolved, and Allison and Carter look like they're all set to move forward in their relationship. Yay! Henry's staying. YAY!

A slightly sucky synopsis, but you get the drift of it. :-D

Wow. That was above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you! I think you have a future at TWOP in case you ever decide to give up the big money in Columbus. ;-)
