Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Friday, January 29, 2010

January 29, 2010 by  

I’m gonna go ahead and start the slow golf clap for Friday! Finally, it’s here!

Today is my last day at my “real job”. I wish I could say my new adventure meant that I was going to be dedicating myself full time to GMMR, but sadly that’s not the case. What I really need is my very own Daddy Warbucks to bankroll this side hobby of mine.  He doesn’t even have to buy me a new locket, just put me up in a sweet pad in West Hollywood and we’re good.

Oh wait, were you here to see the highlights from tonight’s TV schedule? My bad.

I think the big TV news for tonight is the final episode of DOLLHOUSE. The Whedonverse will shed tears of another show gone too soon (of course I say that with a hint of jest because DOLLHOUSE probably should have been gone a lot sooner.) Here’s the hoping all the inhabitants of the house show up on our TV again soon. (I’m talking to you Enver!)

I’m excited for tonight’s second episode of CAPRICA. Is anyone else watching? I need to know whether or not the show should be covered on the site or on the podcast only.  Dan and I love it so we’ll be talking about it. Don’t you want to be able to join in on the discussion. Will you be watching CAPRICA?

SMALLVILLE fans finally get a new episode tonight. You’ve all been patient. I hope you’ll come back to GMMR to talk about tonight’s episode. I know Sarah would love it!

One more thing….if you’re a fan of WHITE COLLAR (or CHUCK) tune into ELLEN today as Matthew Bomer (Neal Caffrey/Bryce Larkin) is a guest. Fingers crossed that he dances his way out to meet Ellen.

Here are a few more highlights from tonight’s TV schedule.

    I will be watching Caprica. I enjoyed the pilot, but will be glad for only one hour this week. 2 hours can be a big undertaking!

    I’m a little sad Dollhouse is going off for good tonight because it finally seemed like it found it’s footing and was getting good to me. At least we’ll have some closure…

    Yay for a new Smallville!

    I have been waiting all week for the series finale of Dollhouse- since it got preempted by the telethon for Haiti last week. Yes, the finale is based on an unaired episode, but almost all the rabid Whedon fans have seen the episode on the DVD for season one and it was awesome. I am really looking forward to the conclusion and will mourn the Dollhouse. It was not even close to my favorite Whedon show, but it really picked up steam this season. I was telling my boyfriend that I wouldn’t have minded as much if the series had ended last season, but the show has gotten so much better this season, with not as many stand alone episodes and much more mythology revealed. Viva Whedon!
