Excellent–another slow weekend for new TV.
Last night’s Dollhouse finale was great–glad to see a proper ending to a show. Also, Spartacus wasn’t as bad with the second ep (a lot less cgi blood and slow motion)–however, not as bad still doesn’t equal good. Haven’t watched Caprica yet–but wasn’t a huge fan of the pilot.
Saw your tweet about the Buffy S4 finale–forgot how bad that episode was. I remembered ahead of time that I didn’t like “Where the Wild Things Are” when it originally aired, but forgot about this episode. “Restless” was unnecessary–the previous episode made a better finale–this episode just seemed like they made it because they needed to fill one more episode–had that “clip show” kind of feel to it.
Through 3 eps each of Buffy S5 and Angel S2.

Kyle, Glad that FOX gave Dollhouse the chance to give a proper ending to the show. I think Caprica gets better after the “Pilot.”

It’s nice to hear someone else didn’t like the Buffy S.4 finale. A bunch of people on Twitter couldn’t believe I didn’t really like it, some of which thought it was one of the best episodes of the series. The episode wasn’t terrible, it just seemed out of place as the season finale. I went back and watched it again with the Commentary by Whedon and while I understand it more, I still don’t think it made for a good season finale. Will be finishing off Angel S.1 today. Won’t have anymore new episodes to watch until Monday when first four episodes of Buffy S.5 arrive.
