Episode 1096: I Need To Shut Up About TV Already...

Lost alumni are popping up everywhere this TV season. First it was Terry O'Quinn on the new season of Hawaii Five-0, now it's Michael Emerson on Person Of Interest, which also stars Jim Caviezel. The show's central concept is pretty interesting, sort of Human Target channelled through Alias. I don't know if it's just me, but the series debuting this season all seem so much more promising than last year's. Community is back as well, and I'm excited to see what happens at Greendale this year! The musical opening scene was a nice touch. It didn't exactly make fun of Glee, but it did underscore how cartoonish High School Musical and Glee really are. Strip away the song and dance shtick, and they're just as fluffy as anything put out by The CW. By the way, The Secret Circle is definitely shaping up to be a good companion to The Vampire Diaries, albeit with a far less obviously attractive cast. (Let's face it, there is apparently not a single ugly young adult in Mystic Falls. Not even homely.) In all honesty though, I am actually looking forward to Ryan Murphy's latest creation, American Horror Story. Dylan McDermott's always been one of my favourite actors, ever since the days of The Practice.
