Of Stargate and White Collars

Well, the new Stargate Universe is a big disappointment. This last episode (the last one Curtis and I will be watching) was one of those shows that had a lot of potential and you keep watching it hoping it will get better...and it doesn't...until finally the show is over and you feel icky inside and wished you'd turned it off at the first sign of trouble. Sigh...we will eventually get it! The episode had two bedroom scenes, an affair, a guy who found out he is the father of an illigitimate son and the mother is a dancer, and a gay couple kissing. The producers managed to pack all of that into a 45 minute show. Amazing...and disgusting.

On the upside, Devin (Curtis' brother) recommended a show that Curtis and I have both been thoroughly enjoying--"White Collar." It is basically about a criminal master forger who is let out of jail to help solve crimes. There is a fun side story about this fellow's girlfriend who supposedly left him, but she has left behind all these clues for him that lead up to...something... we don't know yet. Anyway, fun show.
