Too Much Teeveee, Not Enough Time

I've taken some time over the last week to catch up on some TV. Finally watchted all of Scrubs (which I found out has been renewed for a sixth season!) and Veronica Mars.

Scrubs ended up with some big surprises and lots of sweet moments. It really hasn't been going for the big laughs since about season 2, and the current mix of pathos and comedy works really well. The actors are all so comfortable with their parts that they really give the show a lot of zest. I get the feeling that the sixth season will be the last, but it's been a good run. Can't wait to get the whole DVD set.

Over on VM, things ended with a bang! I got the distinct feeling that the writers were wrapping up all the plot threads in case the show didn't get renewed next year (it did get renewed, BTW!) I'm not entirely happy with the Rube Goldberg style complications of the plot with (almost) all the bad things pointing to one person. But anyways, I'm pretty happy with how it ended, but in true VM style it wasn't an entirely happy ending.

So now all I have to do is catch up on 22 episodes of BattleStar Galactica, 24 episodes of Lost season 2, a whole bunch of Top Gear, The Chaser and various odds and ends. There is NO WAY I'll get through it all.

To make things worse, ABC2 is starting to show DiG TV and jTV!
