Things on the teevees I has been mostly loving this week.  
So my new found status as a workshy layabout has given me more time to be catching up on the shows I didn't really have time to watch before.

First and foremost is Modern Family. Ace. It's been likened to Arrested Development for obvious reasons, and while it doesn't really have that absurd quality that AD had, the humour is definitely on par. Best new show on the box.

Secondly, I'm delighted to have discovered Fringe at last (thanks eken95!), especially as I now have a season and a half to catch up on. The writing is top notch, the characters are engaging (Pacey, I never stopped loving you and I never will!), there is enough humour to keep it lively, and the plots are fast moving and intriguing. And the hints of ship - guaranteed to get me hooked.

Lastly, I've been watching Eli Stone, mainly because of my recently discovered crush on Jonny Lee Miller after his stint as Mr Knightly. I think the pilot was the best of the bunch to be honest, but the show is enjoyable and his character is adorable and there are plenty of laugh out loud moments to keep me interested.

Oh and I've also discovered that this strange interest in SGU doesn't seem to be going away. Hmmm... I wonder if there is a lotion available for that...

Well hell, I think you know me well enough by now to realise that any whiff of a cracktastic TV show will get me hooked. What's this Glee business all about?

Oh and while we're at it I have another bone to pick with you. Brick Break. I'm reading your post the other night and thinking to myself 'Ooh I wonder what Brick Break is'. So I google it and the next thing I know it's 4am. FOUR AM, LINZ!! I'm playing it right now! I can't stop! I sort of hate you at the moment.

ETA: Also I should say that Modern Family is awesomely amazing and you would love it. Check it out.

I love Modern Family!
My interest in SGU has gone away but I'll prob still DVR it.

Aw, Eli Stone. I miss it.

Modern Family is inspired. I think Manny is my favourite :)

SGU's a strange one. It's not a fannish obsession I have, but I keep finding myself tuning in to see what's happening next. Very strange.

At the moment however it's definitely Fringe that is breaking my brain with the 'OMG' factor. Not to mention the ship :D

Fringe is just awesome. I've heard whispers of cancellation which I really hope aren't true, because I think it's one of the best shows I've seen in ages. Walter is brilliant and hilarious, Olivia is a fantastic heroine and as for Peter *guh*! It may be residual Pacey Love that hasn't quite disappeared from the 90's, but oh man, that guy is HAWT! Peter/Olivia FTW!!
