This behavior is completely unacceptable.

Exhibit the first: Charlie Sheen is getting $2 million per episode for Two and a Half Men while he has charges pending in CO for threatening his wife with a knife.

Exhibit the second: Criminal Minds is cutting A.J. Cook (Jennifer 'JJ' Jareau) entirely and reducing Paget Brewster's (Emily Prentiss) episodes significantly. (Two out of the three female cast members.)

I call sexist bullshit.

If the cast cut on Criminal Minds is really about saving money, they could have done the common sense thing and pulled a Numb3rs. You know, not have every single cast member in every episode. Reduce all cast members' episode count by three or four and keep the phenomenal cast intact. But nnnnnooooooooo, we're going to get rid of the women and just get a new female cast member later. Because, you know, women are so interchangeable it's not going to matter. Bullshit.

So, next fall TV season? No Criminal Minds, NCIS, Big Bang Theory, or The Mentalist for me. And I won't be trying out Hawaii Five-0. And I'm writing CBS and the advertisers on CM to complain.

Please pardon my language. I've been getting my feminist rant on lately and this just hit me all wrong.

Not gonna lie, I'm kind of excited. Eureka and Warehouse 13 Team Up for Crossover Episodes. This will either be completely epic or completely jump the shark. Possibly both.

In other news, it's TV Upfronts week. AKA the week that the networks render final decisions on the fall schedule and put on a dog and pony show for the advertisers. After The CW finishes off the week tomorrow I'll be posting my fall TV schedule with any pics of the actors I can find from the Upfronts.

So, Chuck got a 13 episode season 4 order. Yay!

Now cutting for spoiler type things

Supernatural 5x22 )

Vampire Diaries )

All in all, is it September yet?
shallanelprin: (tv buff)
Updated schedule just in case you wanted to know what we're both going to be watching this fall

My TiVo is currently planning my untimely death )

Yep, that's 14.5 hours of television a week. I'm thinking this may not actually happen but I have no idea which shows will end up on the chopping block. *sigh* Also, clearly there's a scheduling conflict on Thursday. I'm thinking Flash Forward is going to win over Vampire Diaries, but I'll watch one of them online until I figure that out.

PS - Sorry about the flist spam.

May I present my crazy ambitious fall TV viewing schedule. Yes, I watch way, way too much television.

This is crazy )

You know, I was starting to cut down on my shows these last couple of years *sigh*
shallanelprin: (supernatural)
Happy dance!

The CW can officially die after next season and I could care less. They also renewed Smallville which I suppose means they got Tom Welling to sign for another year, which is a bit of a surprise.
shallanelprin: (life sucking aliens)

I'm a bit pumped for this...Friday, February 13, 2009 I will be glued to my tv.
shallanelprin: (dean angst)
Ugggh. I hate, hate being sick. I went home about an hour early from work yesterday and woke up this morning and called in sick around 7 am. I then proceeded to go back to sleep and sleep until 11. Blah. Then there was lunch/breakfast/food of some variety and I rewatched Supernatural 4.09 and 4.10.

I Know What You Did Last Summer and Heaven and Hell )

Yuck, still feel like crap. I think I'm going back to bed now.
shallanelprin: (supernatural)
The title is made of awesome, but I'm not sure how I feel about the episode yet. I'll get back to you next week :)

A few episode thoughts, Ruby actress ratings and rant/commentary on the crazy wank )
shallanelprin: (b/b)
The episode tonight was amazing. Possibly the best Bones episode ever. So much character stuff. Bones really isn't a procedural, it's a character drama. I actually could have cared less about the murder mystery because the character revelations and development in this episode was so amazing. The murder investigation just happened to be going on.

Also, I love the actor they got to play Booth's brother--Brenden Fehr. I think he knocked it out of the park and I hope they bring him back. Tempe's family keeps coming back so there's no reason Booth's family can't keep showing up as well.
shallanelprin: (saving hunting)
Sam Winchester :) The titles of episodes this year are completely made of win.

Supernatural 4.07 )
shallanelprin: (tv buff)
I haven't actually talked about my shows much yet (except Supernatural), so now I shall comment on all the things in my TiVo. Ordered by day of the week.

Chuck )


The Mentalist )

Bones )

Supernatural )

Numb3rs )

Life )

Wondering why Atlantis isn't on here? Well, I'm about four or five episodes behind and very apathetic about the whole thing. Last season or not. I'll catch up eventually.
shallanelprin: (crazy talk)
A Melrose Place spin-off? Really? You did notice that 90210 isn't doing that hot ratings wise, right? Also, the buzz is slowly dying unlike the Gossip Girl buzz which refuses to die.
shallanelprin: (dean-sammy)
I'm never, ever going to be able to hear "Eye of the Tiger" without laughing. Thank you so much Jensen Ackles.

Yellow Fever...Or Dean being very OOC )

I'm a Dean girl, but can we have a Sam episode now please? KTHX
shallanelprin: (big damn heroes)
Supernatural )

Is it next week yet?

Also, Smallville was actually kinda awesome tonight. I really, really want a Green Arrow spin-off people!!
shallanelprin: (tv buff)
'Cause work is kinda slow today


Supernatural )

Is it weird that I find this stuff interesting?
shallanelprin: (green arrow)
The Graysons? Seriously? Okay, yay for not working on another "lives of the rich and young" show but a backstory for Dick Grayson? Something Green Arrow or Justice League related would make so much more since and, IMHO, be much more interesting. There's also the advantage of having a semi-built in audience since those characters were already introduced on Smallville, unlike anything Batman related. *sigh* I want a Green Arrow series dang it!

In other Green Arrow news, it's Oliver Queen backstory week on Smallville. Weird to actually be looking forward to Smallville.
