Friday TV viewing

To me, Fridays mean crop at Scrapbook Centrale and Battlestar Galactica. Yup, a sci-fi show. I guess when you're into Star Trek as much as we are, Battlestar Galactica is a given. Although both are not the same at all! I didn't watch every season, I'll admit. But last season, I decided to give it another try and join Keith in this weekly viewing habit. I have never strayed since.

Here's the basic plot: Human built machines to do stuff for them. Machines evolved and rebelled. Wiped out all but 50 ooo humans. Cylons (the robots) found a way to look human. They have now infiltrated the 50 000 humans. Who's gonna win?!

There's nothing about this show I don't love. And I'll tell you a something: I secretly wish I was Starbuck! Man, she can kick a**!!!!!

Dollhouse. This show just started a few weeks ago.
I had to watch, of course, because it's from creator Joss Whedon. You know...? Of Buffy, Angel, and Firefly fame? and let's not forget Toy Story! ;P Buffy and Angel got their fair share of airtime. Firefly never got the chance it deserved. Whedon is a master of witty dialogue. If you never watched his shows, I bet you never realized they were funny, right?
So this is what I'm expecting from Dollhouse. After watching 2 episodes, I haven't seen that though. The premise is this, from what I could gather from these 2 episodes: people give up 5 years of their lives for money. Their personnalities are erased and then they are implanted with new ones depending on what the client wants. You need the best hostage negociator in town? Done. You need a fun living girlfriend? Sure! I'm not sure how this one will turn out, but I'm sticking with it. TV Gal says it gets better after the 4th show, and I always trust TV Gal! :)

How about that, drama that takes place in Toronto. Cool! Flashpoint.
Swat team. Snipers. Hostage negotiators. A totally likeable cast and *sigh* Veronica Mars' dad. I like it. Deserves a better slot than Friday nights.
Raising the Bar.

I've watched 2 episodes of this legal drama. I have probably 5 or 6 on my PVR.... Doesn't bode well. Although it's nice to see Gunn from Angel again!
