About Last Night…Red Sox, FRINGE and ELI STONE

 The remote control was certainly getting a work out last night.  My scripted shows were on a bit of a delay as I was trying to watch the Red Sox.  I guess they keyword there is “trying” because I found it to be quite difficult to keep my eyes open during their beat down.  But with the Sox game, House, Fringe, Eli Stone – well, there was certainly a lot to take in last night.  And I didn’t succeed in watching it all.

Erik is going to be sharing his take on last night’s incredible episode of HOUSE so stay tuned for that later this morning because I think there will be plenty for you to comment on.

The Boston Red Sox…
Boston Red SoxI know some of you are haters, but this is my team.  We know that the Sox can come back from being down from near defeat in the ALCS – just ask any Yankees fan.  Do I think it’s going to happen?  Probably not.  But then again I was doubtful after their 19-8 beating back in Game 3 of 2004.  Anything can happen.  I think I’m just still in awe that we are playing the Rays.  Seriously, the Rays?  Kudos where kudos are due – they’ve been great all season.  I just want their season to end this week.  Go Sox!!

John Noble, FringeI’m sorry to report that I completely missed out on FRINGE. And I call myself a Joshua Jackson fan?!  I was so exhausted when I finally got around to watching it, and let’s face it, FRINGE is not a show you can half ass watch.  Agreed?  So with that I turn it over to you. How was FRINGE last night?  Don’t worry about spoiling me.  It’s going to be at least a few days until I can find the time to watch it.

Eli StoneDid you watch?  Please say that you did!  And if you were an ELI STONE newbies last night (perhaps someone who watched after my incessant nagging) I’d especially love to hear your thoughts.

Last night’s episode was incredible and a big page turner in the story of Eli and those close to him.  Eli’s attempts to remove the aneurysm and halt his visions seemed to be successful. But when Nate finds himself hallucinating about future events, Eli knows something isn’t right.  Is Eli really a messenger of God or some kind of higher being? It seems that’s what we were told last night…unless of course this is all a part of another Eli hallucination.  It’s hard to say, but I don’t care.

Kudos to the writing team for so effortlessly bringing new ELI STONE viewers up to speed by seamlessly integrating key plot points from last season into last night’s narrative. There were a lot of characters to introduce and background to cover and they did it well without breaking from the overall storyline.

Can we please talk about that opening musical number?  My love for all things Jonny Lee Miller grew exponentially after seeing him ‘dancing in the street’.  It was the perfect way to celebrate a new season.

I’ve seen next week’s much talked about Katie Holmes episode (which will talk about more before next week) and I think it’s great…she’s great.  But what’s important to know is that the seemingly changed Jordan that we saw in last night’s episode isn’t going anywhere. Expect big things from Spy!Daddy (oh by the way…how about the shout out to Credit Dauphine last night…love it!.)

A fantastic season premiere.  I’m so excited to have Eli and his visions back.  How about you?

So thoughts on FRINGE, ELI STONE…and dare I say the Red Sox?

    The plight of the Red Sox delayed a 2nd viewing of House for me until this morning. Despite the lackluster performance of my favorite team, rest assured that my excitement over last night’s episode is overwhelming. Great stuff, and a recap coming ASAP…

    You missed Fringe? Gasp! That’s just not right at all. It was a pretty decent episode – great storyline, and Josh looking all kinds of handsome (albeit still beat up from his “encounter” last episode). Olivia was as sulky as ever, and Walter had lots of fun, fun lines. The preview for next week looks HILARIOUS! They take Walter to a crime scene at (what looks like) a diner and he requests a cool white suit and “some of that onion soup, which looks delicious.” I seriously love me some Josh Jackson, but Walter is so my favourite person on this show right now.

    Eli Stone was friggen fantastic!! Sigourney Weaver as GOD couldn’t be better. I like Nate’s realization that these visons are very powerful and confusing to person having them!

    Can’t wait until next week!!

    BEST SHOW OF THIS FALL SEASON! I triple loved the premiere and it did not disappoint in any way! I was waiting for this show more than all the others and didn’t know what to expect. I was afraid of being let down after looking forward to it so much. No worries!

    Sigourney Weaver was kick ass. I love how they didn’t make Matt a total douche and they also didn’t make him get tooo gooey at the end of the episode. Perfect balance!

    I must say it was completely obvious that Eli was going to lose the case because Taylor was the one who would have to save her father. She’d never be able to live with the guilt if Eli had saved him with her fighting against it. Oh well. I forgive that. I was curious about the law partner, if he wanted Jordan to die so he’d get more control or something. He seemed sinister to me. Was he supposed to be?

    Loved Maggie’s new haircut! Just like the first season they brought her in slowly. She’ll have lots of airtime coming up. Also, having Jordan out of commission was a good way to make time for the other characters. You don’t want to cram too much into an episode that you feel short-changed. We got the point that he is different and now we have that to look forward to. It’s soooo nice to see Spy Daddy smile.

    I literally got goosebumps when I read your shoutout for Credit Delphine!! Please bring Bradley Cooper on to be a client!!!! Or opposing counsel, then it can be recurring. What kind of lawyer would Will make?

    How unexpected and awesome was it to see Nate having a vision? Amazing!

    And what pipes on Loretta Devine! Great opening number. Glad to see they didn’t abandon the musical numbers.

    Can’t wait ’til next week. MUST SEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
