The Vast Wasteland

Sheila's rantings, most likely of no interest, on TV, movies, books, music, etc.

I live in Seattle, am married, have two cats (one is a genius, the other insane), and am a mild-mannered copy editor by day. I love horseback riding, coffee, reading, TV, movies, music, playing (too much) World of Warcraft, and lying on the couch. This isn't a personal blog, but rather a place for me to vent about movies, TV shows, books, music, etc. Thanks for checking in!

Open Letters to TV Shows, Part V

Dear Cold Case: Your season premier episode was the single most violent and upsetting thing I've seen on TV in recent memory. Seriously, watching a high school girl almost get gang raped, and then seeing her classmates go on a shooting rampage in a mall (shown in great detail, I might add) is not my idea of a good time. Well acted all around (Kyle Gallner is one creepy little, kid), but still very upsetting, and way too graphic for 8:00 p.m. You owe me a nice, happy episode about kittens. And not murdered kittens either--happy, fluffy kittens.

Dear Bones: You were starting to get good at the end of last season--not as self-consciously cutesy and more at ease. So why did you have to ruin things by introducing a new character? The show wasn't stagnant yet. (Oh, and show more scenes of Angel in jeans and a t-shirt, OK?)

Dear Six Degrees: I tried to watch you, but found your characters cliched and unlikable, and your storylines dull. Meh. Deleted from my recording list.

Battlestar Tidbits

Mo Ryan has an article about the upcoming season of Battlestar Galactica. It sounds horrifying yet gripping--I'll probably watch with a pillow over my head. Just in case. Time to renew my Starbuck infatuation!

Open Letters to TV Shows, Part IV

Dear 4400: We broke up. It's official, you've been dumped from my DVR. I have no idea what's going on with you lately--you've been so muddled, and you've angered me. Please stop calling--I won't take you back. OK, you may get one more chance next season--but promise you'll be kinder to me, OK?

Dear Janice Dickinson and Desperate Housewives: You've been dumped too. Buh-bye.

Dear House: Oh, it's on, baby. See you tonight. *kiss kiss*
