But at least it had a cool cast and was entertaining, unlike NCIS, which is the hourly equivalent of a dry baloney sandwich.

Yet has lasted more than nine seasons longer.

It's all subjective. I bet there are plenty of people who think that what you watch is crap.

That goes without saying. I like Altered States. One of my good friends thinks it's a pile of dog poo.

I have a hard time taking HGTV seriously when the host and homeowner is shown destroying kitchen cabinets and counter tops with a sledge hammer, which is only shown for excitement. No one would do that, it makes more work for everyone who has to clean it up, not to mention swinging of the heavy hammer in the first place. You unscrew the items, and lift them out and carry it to the dumpster in as few pieces as possible.

The other thing is will they ever show a homeowner who doesn't like the renovations or decorations the show provided? Every time, they're all thrilled with it. There are people who will not be able top hide disgust with a certain style or color (no, I am not that impolite).

Someone mentioned Scorpion and it is definitely like this. There is always the initial problem they are sent to fix, they think they have a solution but wait there is more bad news! The escape hatch they were going to use to save everyone on the submarine has dangerous levels of chlorine gas in it which will kill them in 5 seconds if they try to use it. Oh no! Show concerned faces. Another thought: "If we try & blow ourselves out of the submarine we will suffer from The Bends and die." More concerned faces and then: "We are going to die, tell Happy I love her and I'm sorry I didn't live long enough to marry her and have babies together".


Someone mentions something innocuous and all of a sudden they have it all figured it out. It's the same thing every single week. Why do producers do this? Laziness? Lack of creativity? It's makes a show boring, monotonous and PREDICTABLE.

I wasn't feeling well yesterday so I stayed on the couch watching old TV shows on ME-TV since I don't have cable. Caught an episode of Love - American Style from 1969 with Harrison Ford. I don't know if it was his first ever role but boy did he look young.
