I missed posting yesterday, but you didn’t miss too much. Once Upon a Time is back, if you watch that one (I stopped after season 1), and so are The Simpsons and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, neither of which I watch anymore either (nothing against B99; I just got kind of burned out on it).
The Last Man on Earth also returned, and while I watched the first half of season 1 and loved it, my DVR failed to record the second half (must’ve been a conflict) and I haven’t gotten around to catching up. Man, I really need to get the flu this year.
CSI also had its final episode last night, a two-parter. I haven’t watched yet, but, for the record, CSI has been a favorite of mine since it started, and I haven’t missed an episode. Even when it wasn’t that great, I still loved it. Ted Danson totally killed it on that show, pun intended, and I’m going to miss him the most. LUCKILY, he leaves CSI just in time to appear in Fargo (October 12), which I’m pretty excited about. Season 1 of Fargo was crazy fun. Emphasis on crazy.
Last night was the launch of Quantico, which I watched this morning. It’s about what I was expecting — lots of pretty young people being pretty and young but not doing a whole lot else yet. I like the idea of setting a series at the FBI Academy, but what I wanted was, like, gritty Silence of the Lambs stuff, and that’s definitely not what we’re going to get. Since the FBI program is only 20 weeks long in the first place, I suspect the academy parts won’t last the season and that we’ll soon be doing ye olde “new agent/seasoned agent” full-time instead of just in the flash-forwards. Too bad. Also, it appears to be focused on terrorism, which, frankly, doesn’t excite me either. The “Welcome to the FBI Academy” speech to the students was all about how unsafe America is, and man, if I want to listen to that kind of paranoid nonsense, I’ll switch over to Donald Trump on 60 Minutes. I’ll be back for more, at least for now, but I’m hoping it picks up fast.
All we’ve got tonight that’s new is The Daily Show with Trevor Noah; I’m withholding comments on that one until I see it. Fingers crossed! More tomorrow!
