TV was pwning this past week...the AMADEUS
-inspired ep of 30 ROCK
had me ROFLMAO. Again. Welcome back GREY'S ANATOMY with a bang. I still love you -- even though you are dating someone else! UGLY BETTY continues to make me giggle nonstop. Many of you have probably read how I feel
about BATTLESTAR. I miss JOHN ADAMS
and its grandeur (not to mention that gorgeous score cue
that I am STILL HUMMING TO MYSELF WTF). Sigh.
And THE TUDORS? Well I am quite glad I stuck with it thus far, because this Sunday's ep
was absolutely the best one yet. In the entire series. Great stuff, with the entire cast bringing their A Game for serious. So it's good news that it's getting a third season
in my book. Jeremy Northram is a huge loss, but the show is cruising along at a high, high level. How amazing is Peter O'Toole as the pope? They certainly give him some terrific lines. As fun as all the palace intrigue on this show can be, my favorite element here involves religion - bringing all this history to life in such an engaging way. You see precedents being laid here that draw a clear path towards the founding of our own American society. I've never been much of a history nerd, so much of this perspective is new for me.*gestures towards my icon*
As for...THAT SHOW...it just about blew my mind last Thursday night (actually Saturday afternoon when I got around to watching it, heh). Seriously I don't even know what to say about it. Other than how amazing Benjamin Linus is. He's right up there with DEADWOOD's Swearengen and BATTLESTAR's Baltar as a great character whose every move, every word, every scheme, is a joy to watch and fully realized by the writers and actors involved.
Meanwhile: time for MAD MED S1 DVD pre orders
