Since Toast has deprived his tv-watching buddies of a thread in which to discuss the current season, I guess I'll just have to get off my lazy blogging ass and do it myself.
Lost - It's been kicking ass all season long. I've not been one of the naysayers who got down on the show during the whole Kate and Sawyer in cages period, but there's no question in my mind that having an end in sight has been great for this show.
Battlestar Galactica - The last season has mostly delivered so far. The Cylon civil war is great stuff, and there have been several intense moments this season - Cally's murder, Anders shooting Gaeta during the mutiny. However, I do get the feeling that they're stretching a bit to fill enough episodes. "The Road Less Traveled", where Leoben turns up and Baltar meets with the Chief seemed to be particularly slow-moving. They're doing a good job with the plot, though. I have no idea where or how this is going to end.
One thing that still bothers me and I hope they address more directly is this - why did the Cylons attempt to destroy humanity in the first place? It really doesn't seem in keeping with where we're going this season. Now it looks like the Cylons want to find Earth as well, and it doesn't sound like they're interested in its destuction. Also, on last week's episode, when the Six killed Barolay, they showed us more about the Cylon psyche. Six didn't understand why Barolay killed her on New Caprica, in such a cruel and senseless way. Not to excuse Barolay's cruelty, but hey, they murdered billions of innocents in the 12 colonies. And since they used nuclear weapons, there had to have been a whole lot of terrible suffering for those who didn't die immediately. What about Six killing that baby in the pilot? I'm having trouble reconciling the Cylons' current empathy and love of life with their earlier actions. I hope that will become clear by the end. I don't want any of those fuzzy endings, I want some answers.
The Office - Due to being very busy over the last month, I just got a chance to watch the first 2 post-strike episodes of The Office last night. The dinner party was absolutely hilarious. "That's a $200 plasma TV!". The whole degeneration of Micheal and Jan from tense, happy-acting couple to train wreck was perfect.
