11-11-03 Wednesday night TV (Enterprise, West Wing, Smallville and Angel

/yawn

Enterprise did another topical sermon (as a more cynical Trekkie, maybe I just enjoy mocking the shows more than just watching them). This one was even heavier-handed that usual and I found it hard not to replace all the actors faces with Osama's soul-less grin...

Smallville... poor Smallville. Clark was able to eliminate two more threats to his secret last night and even evaded salvaging a relationship that both parties want but are too stupid to even attempt. Chloe's still hot, but will probably be made an example of (ie - wind up dead) soon. Jamie Madrox, the multiple man, or whatever his DC clone's name was is probably dead, yet lightning-steals-clark's-powers boy was left alive (why not just clean up the loose ends already?). I want desperately to enjoy this show more than I currently can, but the writers are dead-set on turning out trite crap each and every week.

West Wing was alright, but it's just not the same without the creative staff the show started with. Did the current 'creative staff' snicker when they first saw their names associated with the word "creative?" This show really did used to have some of the best, most natural dialogue written for TV, in my opinion, regardless of your political flavor. Now it's just a shadow of it's former self. The exposition is forced at best. I still watch out of habit and because the subject matter still fascinates me...

Angel was lost for me for quite some time due to its placement into the same time-slot as West Wing. Last night I got to watch it due to a BB game pushing it and Smallville back two hours (which is great since my VCR taped the game instead of Smallville). This is another show I have fond memories of, but just can't watch anymore apparently. It wants to be funny like Buffy and dark like Buffy and still original in its mood like Angel used to be. Last night fell short on all counts. It seems to have desensitized itself to itself. Nothing is dramatic in this franchise any longer... That being said, the trailer for next week (or last night after the first Angel?) shows Cordelia waking up (from a coma I didn't know she had fallen into). That could be promising... I fell asleep sometime after Bimbette the Vampire put her third person into the closet after they had found out about her blah blah blah...

/shrug

I may just start reading more again...
