Star Trek: Enterprise - Season 1

All 25 episodes over the last two days. I can't believe this September is the tenth anniversary already! I was thinking about doing a LiveJournal post then to celebrate, so I'm rewatching the entire series to refresh my memory. Really wish this show had gotten a full seven seasons. Was the only ST series after The Next Generation that I enjoyed and my #1 favorite TV show of the 2000s.

Just finished The Middleman. A curious blend of awful and amazing. An ABC Family show, I think, a sort of comic-bookish sci-fi affair. Think Joss Whedon in terms of pop-culturally aware hip wisecracking dialogue -- actually the sf pop culture references might just surpass any other show ever -- but with a much lower budget and production values. I loved it to death but could very easily have hated it. Regardless, I recommend giving it a shot.

After just finishing and loving Jason Katims' Parenthood, I'm going to watch Six Feet Under but am strongly considering catching Katims' Friday Night Lights after that. Has anyone seen that show, any comments or recommendations for that one?

I just finished watching the final season of LOST. A brilliant show, with a superb cast of characters. The final episode entitled, THE END... is emotionally devastating.

We've gone back to start with season 1, working our way through each new day, and tonight we'll crank up season 5, perhaps the strongest season they had.




Plus a backlog of DVR'd episodes :



I dunno, I may have a man-crush on Josh Gates. Yeah he he talks like Kermit the Frog but I find him cool and hilarious. A couple of years back I ran into him at The Gap on Hollywood Blvd and was embarrassingly star struck. Guess he's my kind of smart-ass razz

I agree. It's my favourite of all the Trek shows. I miss seeing the episodes on HDNet. It's a pity it never got to run seven seasons as it had alot of potential. The only episode I can't bear to watch is the show's finale. What an insult.

Stargate SG-1: Season 1 Disc 1.

http://stargate.mgm.com/view/series/1/index.html

Just finished the Pilot (i.e. Episodes 1, 2 and 3).

Now on to Season 1 Disc 2 in the morrows.



Holly,
Have you seen the re-cut version of Children of the Gods?

The First 48.

I love the nicknames the gangsters have.

"Little Boobie" "Tron" "Cheeseburger""Boo-Boo"....

And the narrator tries his best not to crack up as he says, dead serious:

"The suspect, know on the street as little Boobie is brought in for questioning."

Nice videos, John. Especially that second one! Hopefully I can rewatch Season 3 soon now that I'm done with the first two. The third season was just fantastic, especially "Azati Prime," where Archer gets captured during his suicide run to destroy the Xindi weapon, and the season finale, "Zero Hour," where it's just a full-on fight to the finish to blow up the weapon and stop the Reptilians from destroying Earth.

3 episodes into Six Feet Under Season 1...a different kind of show for sure but so far I'm interested.

Dep, to answer your question on another thread, Supernatural is one of only a couple shows I watch weekly as it's showing rather than waiting for the DVD.

As for what I'm currently watching: I just started Season 5 of Doctor Who. I really liked Season 1 with Eccleston, but had a tough time transitioning to Tennant and kind of forgot about the show. I heard 5 was a good jumping-on point though. I really enjoy the Doctor's energy, and don't dislike the companion, but 3 or 4 episodes in I'm not impressed by the plotting. Enjoying it more than not, though, so we'll see how I feel when it comes to its end.

Just finished this season of episodes this weekend. Up next, I dunno, might do another Brisco County disc or CSI NY season 3 or......

Almost finished with season 1 of Six Feet Under and had a few thoughts I thought I would share here (because I know you're just dying to hear my opinion! wink)...

1) At first I was neutral on the show. Interesting, but didn't grab me. About halfway through the season I really started losing interest and starting daydreaming about all the other shows I've wanted to try...I literally barely abandoned Six Feet Under but figured I should stick it out through the end of the first season, because I've seen ample evidence in the past that shows often don't find their footing until later on in the series (everybody knows this). Magically, the show hit me in the face with its brilliance towards the end of the season, and now I'm very much on board. I don't care for the occasional song-and-dance fantasy numbers, but I put up with them and they are really my only gripe.

2) What a treat to see Ed O'Ross with such a meaty role as a Russian florist in a show like this! I grew up with the Ed O'Ross from Red Heat and Another 48 Hrs.

3) I can't believe I saw Wendy Schaal in such a serious, grieving role here...interesting...again, I grew up with the wacky Wendy Schaal from Innerspace and The 'burbs.

4) I really love the show's frequent use of...forgive my technical ignorance...the photographic technique of having a character in close up in full focus while having another character in the background in full focus. I know it's a specific camera trick, and you can usually tell because there is a weird blurry line between the close up half of the screen and the background half of the screen, but in this case it really lends itself to considerable dramatic and narrative power.

5) I appreciate both the show's unflinching depiction of any and all sexual orientation among characters as well as the show's unflinching depiction of casual drug use. It's...refreshing. And honest, and realistic, and these often "taboo" (or at the very least clumsily-handled) aspects of TV or film drama are handled with such skill in this show that it deepens and widens the show's general appeal of realism. This show basically doesn't give a fuck what people think and just tells its story, and I really respect that.

6) One of the biggest attractions for me of watching this show was the deft acting skills of Jeremy Sisto. I couldn't wait to see him finally get a full, rich, multilayered and multifaceted character development arc that his thespian self so deserves. One of the most underrated and underutilized actors of his generation.

7) Having recently become a devoted fan of Peter Krause and Michael C. Hall for their spectacular other shows, Parenthood and Dexter respectively, I am having a blast seeing them play the absolute total opposite in character on this show. I appreciated their acting talent via those other two shows, but seeing them together in this show, with broadened talent and opportunity for different characterization is immensely enjoyable.

8) The score, by Richard Marvin, is quite delicate and sensitive, presumably following the blueprint of creator Alan Ball's (and the opening title sequence's) composer Thomas Newman. Interestingly, the spotting for this show is quite economical and sparse. Noticeably so, but not to any detriment.

That's all for now.

Been streaming Fawlty Towers from Netflix, now I figured out how to hook my computer up to the TV. Hadn't seen this show since I was a kid, probably since about the mid- or maybe late-80s. Just finished off the first season tonight, with it's famous episode "The Germans." What a riot! Will be watching Season 2 tomorrow. I never realized how short this show actually is, though, consisting of just 12 episodes. Seemed like more when I was a kid. Connie Booth is such a doll.

Basil: Listen, don't mention the war! I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it all right. [returns to the Germans] So! It's all forgotten now, and let's hear no more about it. So, that's two egg mayonnaise, a prawn Goebbels, a Hermann Goering, and four Colditz salads.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Basil: Is there something wrong?
Elder Herr: Will you stop talking about the war?
Basil: Me! You started it!
Elder Herr: We did not start it!
Basil: Yes you did — you invaded Poland.
