Here’s what I was watching last night, Wednesday 9/24.
This episode had more heart and less slapstick than most, but it was still enjoyable. I like this show, it’s a good, solid, reliable sitcom.
The Mysteries of Laura
It’s kind of weird that the first case mirrors Laura’s own life so much, but I guess it’s an interesting way of unveiling more of her back story. But I really do like Laura, I think she’s a very relatable character. At least, I can relate to her, I don’t care about the rest of you. This new series is a keeper.
Law & Order: SVU
Dun dun, we’re back! And back in a big way, baby! I have mixed feelings about the more serialized and personal approach the show has taken in the past few seasons, but I loved this episode. If they keep this up it will be the best season since Stabler left. I don’t want to spoil anything, but I will say that it had a very satisfying ending. Go watch. Like, now.
First things first, I’m very glad that Hayden Panettiere won’t have to suffer through another bad wig. Heroes, last season of Nashville, let the woman cut her hair! The live performances were surprisingly seamless, though I did get a weird cut to blue screen at one point. And I guess I have to address her pregnancy, because Lord knows that’s the only thing anyone else is talking about. Other shows should take note – no giant bags or weirdly carrying around pillows – just smart camera angles and wardrobe choices. The show itself was good, if predictable, but it’s always a fun ride.
What I Missed
I bit off more than I could chew with my Wednesday night schedule, and I do still have to get up and go to work on Thursday, so here’s what’s still on my DVR:
Look for views on those tomorrow-ish.
