My eyes spot them across a room. They look intriguing, attractive. But will they bring the pleasure they promise, or simply tease and taunt me into a mire of unfulfilled disappointment? Yes viewers, I've reached that difficult age where I wonder: do I really need another TV show in my life?

I say this as someone who is two episodes into FlashForward, and at the stage where I must decide whether to commit my full attention to it or not. It's sort of interesting so far, and seems to have got people talking in Real Life, which is something. On the other hand, I wouldn't miss it if I never saw another episode, I don't know if I can stay the distance waiting for some sort of resolution, and I have always wanted to slap Joseph Fiennes really, really hard. So, swings and roundabouts. Another televisual opportunity is offered by True Blood, which also started over here this week, but which I haven't watched yet. The thing is, I find it hard to get excited about the prospect of vampires in anything post-Buffy/Angel, and they certainly don't do anything for me in the sexiness stakes.* But should I give it a go anyway? Is it fun? Is it funny?

In the meantime, I shall continue to rely on Heroes to deliver my weekly dose of Stateside silliness. And that sounds like a cue for some brief thoughts on Acceptance...Collapse )

* And yes, this includes Being Human. I think this is the root of my problems with that show, in fact. See, even if they are really handsome, I just don't care!
