It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

(TV Party Tonight playing in the background)

Next to Christmas, this is probably the next best time of year.

The 30+ degree C days have gone, taking the humidness with them, and the Fall television season is in full swing.

And what a season it is so far…. Cute little baby sea monsters in Surface, plus that funky Rade Serebedja….Christian unable to keep up with the woman he brought to bed along with his porn star girlfriend in Nip/Tuck…we got to go inside the hatch on Lost and see that several numerical patterns are being repeated all over the place….Will is at the receiving end of a hard, long kiss (with tongue, I’m sure) from meaty Alec Baldwin on the live opening show of Will and Grace…speaking of meaty, Billy Shatner and Jimmy Spader, both sporting shades, plow down the street in the launch of Boston Legal and run smack into Heather Locklear who’ll be around for a while….ah and then there’s the Apprentices…. Martha’s well groomed group (The Creatives and the Business People) live in a beautifully appointed loft and have, so far, had to create a children’s book and set up a flower shop…. While The Donald’s passle (now divided into Men and Women) have had to set up gym programmes the first week and develop an ad campaign for Lamborghini…on another night we’ve seen the first woman president of the United States take office (with a perfectly evil Speaker of the House – Donald Sutherland – intoning “I’ll be behind you every step of the way” in the most sinister manner)…as much as I love the idea of Benjamin Bratt in uniform throwing around tough-guy bravado with Dennis Hopper, I’ve already given up on E-Ring, as it had a been-there-done-thatness to it…..but on the subject of DC and politics, West Wing (my fantasy government) opened with a teasing glimpse of what the characters’ lives will be like in a few years’ time, then cut back to the presidential campaign between Alan Alda and Jimmy Smits just before the opening credits unfurled…

(Pant, pant) Even with TiVO I can’t keep up.
