11:29 pm - My Love Won't Look Me in the Eye, It Makes Me Want to Cry
I caught the last half hour of Fight Club on G4. God, I love that movie.

Fringe

Fringe!! Oh man, how cool is this show? I don't remember what happened in the finale now. Was Olivia driving in her jeep and she got abducted or something? I thought she went to a building and took a magic elevator. Was there an accident I don't remember? Regardless, the scene where she appears out of nowhere and flies out the windshield was awesome.

I guess this Agent Jessup is going to be a recurring character? I wonder what her deal is. Who gave her the password to get into the Fringe Division files? And what was she doing at the end with the Bible quotes? I expected the book to be the ZFT.

What happened to Olivia in the alternate universe? What did William Bell tell her? What's hidden? Why can't she remember? Besides the plot contrivance?

You can't shut down Fringe Division! That's lame! But I love how Peter very succinctly described a key problem with the first season: they seriously did just wait around for shit to happen and then clean it up. Granted, they totally did save a lot of lives, so he was wrong on that point, but I am very excited about his resolve to make Fringe Division more proactive. Now that they know what's out there, they should be out there trying to fucking stop it, not just sitting there until something weird happens.

Ew, Sharpe and Broyles? I know it was implied they had a History, but not like that. I wonder if she has bionic lips.

And, finally: noooooooooooooooo!! You can't just kill Charlie like that! He's so great! He and Olivia are so great together! I mean, this explains the whole Kirk Avecedo "THEY DONE FIRED YER BOY!" fiasco of yore, but it is still bad! Especially because J.J. Abrams clearly has his sights on Aaron Sorkin's title for King of Recycled Plot Points.

CHARLIE DOESN'T LIKE COFFEE ICE CREAM.

The Office

The premiere was sadly disappointing. I loved Jim and Pam, and Andy was pretty amusing, but everything else was kind of terrible. Michael was awful, and I am one of those people who likes Michael in his more endearing moments, of which this was not one. And Stanley is having an affair? Come on, Stanley! Ergh. I liked the interns, though.

Supernatural

Castiel has read Preacher! Have fun finding God! I am really glad that the marks do mean that Castiel can't find Sam and Dean either because I was wondering whether they would work with that or handwave it the way they give Castiel kung fu angel-killing action but no healing powers. I also loved Castiel's big tirade against Dean.

Ellen! Jo! Rufus! Only Ellen really had much of anything to do, but it was nice to see them all again. Maybe next time Jo can have more than two lines.

War! Last year, Two years ago, they used up the Seven Deadly Sins in one episode, so I hope we get to see the other three Horsemen, then. I really liked the way the episode was set up so that we thought it was demons, and then we were really confused by Jo and Rufus, and then it all made sense. Unless you read the episode description, which spoiled the twist.

I was glad that Sam felt bad about killing those teenagers, but I wonder how bad he feels now that they weren't even demons. That guy feels bad about a lot of things.

Sam and Dean are spending some time apart?? ARE THEY SEEING OTHER BROTHERS? Will the latter half of the season consist of Sam constantly yelling, "We were on a break!"?

There was totally not an accident in the Fringe finale. Olivia took a magic elevator and ended up in the Twin Towers with Leonard Nimoy. Duh, same thing we do every night, Pinky.

I am also way sad about Charlie! But less way sad than when I thought he was just cold not gonna be there anymore. At least he will be around evilly. :(

I TOTALLY DID IT WAS GREAT.

Maybe in a weird twist, Scarface Charlie from the alternate universe is actually just like good Charlie....?

There was totally not an accident in the Fringe finale.
I didn't think so! That whole thing was so confusing. What are they expecting us to believe happened?

SO GREAT AND SILLY!

I forgot about Scarface Charlie! Do you think he will come and play? Then we could have all the Charlies ever except Original Flavor Charlie, so...not all of them at all.

Presumably something happened after Olivia walked into Bell's office, which may have included important information and car crashes. So now we get protracted flashbackery over who knows how many episode.

Also! Ashley Miller from SCC! Was in the credits! GO TEAM!

Oh right! I knew that and forgot! Yay! And apparently Akiva Goldsman is still chilling with the Fringe crowd. Way to work that Oscar.

I really want to see Scarface Charlie again!

And what the hell happened with Bell in his office! I await protracted flashbackery. When it looked like Olivia was going to die or vegetize, I thought that maybe they were pulling something where it was actually Alternate!Olivia that came back and died and Olivia was still with Bell, but I'm glad they didn't do that because that means we still get to see Alternate!Olivia. And what will she be like? Maybe she has INCREDIBLE PSYCHIC POWERS. Maybe she is like Jean Grey in that universe. And Olivia will become Phoenix and fight Dark Phoenix and THEY WILL EAT WORLDS TOGETHER.

Er.

I don't know anything about X-Men or who Akiva Goldsman is but totally!

I thought Olivia was gonna die and then Walter was gonna be all BTDUBS THERE IS ANOTHER OLIVIA AND WE CAN GO AND KIDNAP HER, PETER JUST LIKE THAT ONE TIME WHEN I KIDNAPPED YOU HA HA so I was almost kind of disappointed when she woke up. Though maybe it is Alternate Olivia after all? That'd be fun.

Akiva Goldman wrote A Beautiful Mind. Also, Batman and Robin.

I kept waiting for Walter to search her for some scar or tattoo that only our Olivia would have, just to confirm.

I also kept waiting for Peter to be like I UNMASK YOU, FAKE CHARLIE!!! But eventually I realized Shapeshiftersolider had killed the nurse so that was really her body so it would have the three dots (!) regardless and thus Peter couldn't know anything from just that.

three dots (!)
HOMG.

thus Peter couldn't know anything from just that.
But would the soldier's body also have the three dots? Ah yes, it would, because he had that thing in his mouth too. He had it in there a lot. He would have a lot of dots. Or three very deep dots.

I guess if Olivia ever tongue-kisses Charlie, she'll figure out something's up.

A note from a lurker who likes reading your Thoughts On Television

I rewatched the finale last week and Olivia almost gets into an accident but swerves to miss it. I think what happened is that when she swerved, she entered the alternate universe, but in our universe there was still a car accident.

I really liked the Office, actually. I loved Jim and Pam and Andy. Michael was an ass, of course, but no worse than usual, I thought. I cracked up at the rumor that Toby was a virgin.

*

Castiel is at his most awesome when he reminds us that he is a badass and that Dean better r-e-s-p-e-c-t.

It was so great to see Ellen and Jo! I have missed them. I hope the masses don't scare Kripke off Jo again. So she and Dean might not work as a couple -- that's no reason to boot her off the show completely. I hope we see both of the ladies again.

Yeah, the Sins episode two years ago was hella lame. Way to blow your whole wad in 42 minutes, writers! This, on the other hand, was awesome. Fortunately I had not read the episode description.

ARE THEY SEEING OTHER BROTHERS?

Heh. Snerrrrk.

Was Jessup trying to tie all the creepy Fringe incidents into the apocalyptic forecasts from Book of Revelation? I hope they don't go too deeply into that. I like my crazy bullshit science show without a tacked-on religious plotline.

That said, last night's episode was still A++.

Ooh, possibly. Ha, it's like a Fringe/Supernatural crossover!

Yeah, there's no need to bring that into it.

Shit, I didn't even mention the AWESOME MAGIC TYPEWRITER.

Um . . . . . . . . . . let's hope not.

I feel like I haven't read one of your tv show reviews in forever so this is great. I haven't seen Fringe yet so I'm skipping that part. I loved this episode. It had so many beautiful parts to it.

Having an affair sounds like too much work for Stanley. Maybe she gave him a free pretzel.

Lol. Are there more secret Winchester brothers out there? I wouldn't be surprised.

I stopped watching Supernatural before the end of last season, and I'm still not sure if I want to tune back in.

I kind of want to watch Fringe, but everything is so blue gray that it just depresses me to look at it. And the Olivia actress is just... not compelling. I left it on last night after Bones (which has colors!) but I don't know. It still feels like "Look! We're doing x-Files again!" I like John Noble though. He's worth watching.

Fringe rocked! I love the mindbenders and Fringe is doing a great job of it. I loved the quick shot of Mulder on the tv. lol!

I actually liked The Office. I just can't imagine Stanley having an affair. Shame on him!

I should watch Supernatural but I don't. Makes me such a bad Jensen fangirl.

Love your post! :D

Dark Angel. LOL! Actually, I remember him Days of Our Lives, but Dark Angel did it for me. I watched him a little on Smallville and lots of Supernatural, just not all of it. I'm a bad fangirl.
