Episode 729: Packed Tuesday Viewing Schedule!
No new submissions today, despite trying to get the word out through Twitter. Hoping that'll change over the next few days. The site is getting views, but so far, this hasn't translated into submission numbers. Anyway, Tuesdays look set to be busy for me in the immediate future. Along with Gossip Girl, which premiered last week, I've got Hawaii Five-0, House, Lone Star and The Event. The last on the list feels like a cross between 24 and Lost. The pilot took a bit of effort to follow because it also makes use of flashbacks, but I think on the whole, the series seems quite promising. We'll see if it lasts longer than the last attempt at creating the next Lost, i.e. the short-lived FlashForward. Gossip Girl's latest season continues to impress, and it really feels like a fresh start in some ways, despite the character dynamics having largely stabilised by now. I guess a lot of it has to do with the absence of Jenny and her petty scheming, so patently inferior to Blair and Chuck's machinations that they make Jenny laughable. Juliet's character is getting fleshed out more, although her pairing with Nate still comes across as overly stiff and contrived, so hopefully that improves over the course of the next couple of episodes. As for House, well, let's just say I'm definitely a Huddy fan!
