if you were everything you say things would be different today

This year's season of Criminal Minds seems to be off to a promising start. I really enjoyed this week's episode (I loved Morgan's general contractor knowledge showing up), and while I thought last week's was strongly constructed in general (with a bunch of good character moments--Rossi and Reid, in particular) I have to admit, it's the first one to actually squick me since "Legacy." I was behind the couch.

Sorry I'm not blogging it this year, but... no time, no time. I'm impressed that any TV show is still watchable eight years in, however.


I am not caught up on CM yet, but timprov and I are most of the way through the final (eighth) season of House, and it's one of the best seasons of House yet for those who can stand House in the first place (and I can list several reasons why someone might not be able to). It makes me curious about how long a good show can stay good, and whether quitting on your own vs. getting canceled makes a big difference, and whether I could actually find a meaningful average of shows I like. Because there are lots of shows I like that had lulls and came back if they were allowed to continue, and others that got canceled before they had the chance to find out. I'm glad CM is still proving to be worth the time, not least because I need workout fodder and was intending to watch it anyway.
I watched two seasons of House--5 and 1, in that order--and felt like I had gotten out of it what I wanted from it.

But Hugh Laurie's snark is a thing of beauty.

CM is not what it was in S2. But it still has moments of absolutely crystalline psychological insight and character subtlety, and it turns out that's why I watch it.

That, and the thing in this icon.
