for my kids, and had hoped that the extra channels
would carry something interesting, unusual or just
The most fun I have is watching the cat when we have
Animal Planet on. Since he actually watches it
(especially the "Animal Cops" series) HE is more
entertaining than the tube is.
Maybe part of the problem is that writers today have
been turned out of "puppy mills" (no pun from the
cat). They have been taught to write inside the
bubble, and all the shows seem to be similar in a lot
of ways. Watch "Smallville", "90210", "Buffy" and
anything that has people on it from Fox, you will see
what I mean.
"Enterprise" was a show I had high hopes for, and I am
greatly dissapointed with it. It's the same stuff,
different day. The plots evolve the same way, the crew
reacts to situations the same way, etc.
Here was a vehicle that could have capitalized (sic?)
on Capt. Pike, or Robert T. April, all Kirk
predecessors. The books are good, and have unusual
ideas, they could have carried the way for a great
series, kept the older audience and still had some
CHARM for the younger generation.
The last series I was rabid about was Babylon 5. It
was sinister, well written, wasn't gimmick oriented
(they used nukes for goodness sakes, in battle) and
had good plot twists.
24 never caught my eye, I watch CSI (not the Miami one
tho')and Monk when I get a chance, and the news.
My Mom has a theory, that all the good songs, good
plots and books have been written. All the original
themes are done with, and modern novels, shows and
music are simply variations on a theme.
There, off the soap box.
