Snarky Comments on Fall Shows I'm Watching

Still on the fence about you. While having Logan Echolls and Buffy in the same show is kind of geek nirvana, I don't understand why is character is in the show. The whole daughter-hot-for-teach sub-plot has nothing to do with the core plot of the show and just makes it seem more like the soap-opera I fear that it will become (and that I have no interest in).

Bees? Really? Yes there is a Grimm fairy tale about bees, but I had to look it up. They wrote over 200 fairy tales and most of them are not in the popular consciousness. Still, the interplay between our hero and the werewolf is great. Everything else, not so much. And the girlfriend seems pointless.

I like you. I'd like you more if you kept that annoying little kid from ever speaking. EVER. And unless you're going to wrap this story up in one season or two, he's going to get awkwardly pubescent real fast. Have you thought through him as a teenager following Emma around? That's going to be disturbingly Oedipal.

The thing I like most about this show is that it's not afraid to linger on something until it becomes funny. It doesn't force a joke to be funny and then move on right away to the next one. It's refreshing.

How can you have an entire episode of Psych dedicated to baseball and not have one single Major League reference? Did the writers forget that Corbin Bernsen was in that movie? I mean, you gave Danny Glover a Lethal Weapon reference for crissakes and had a whole play on the belief monologue from Bull Durham. Oh, the missed opportunity! I thought you were better than that Psych.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
