What have you been watching this week (w/e 8 May)?

Seen anything good? Seen anything bad? Let your fellow blog readers know, so they can spend their viewing time wisely.

We’ve caught up with House in the US. Last week’s episode about the deaf community nearly caused my wife to turn into She Hulk and start to smash things – particularly the bits about cochlea implants – but this week’s seemed better, and head Amber’s as fun as the original so it’s been nice to see her again.

Life’s a bit duller without Heroes though, 24 has fallen right through the floor and David Caruso trying to interact with children on CSI: Miami was one of the scariest things on television since Ghostwatch. I think I almost fell asleep during The Mentalist, at times, but nice to see a female near-rival to Jane’s talents – will she become his Irene Adler for season two?

The Unit managed to mess up what had been a previously promising story arc with a dumb twist. Stupid Unit.

As always, no spoilers unless you’re going to use the <spoiler> </spoiler> tags, please? Ta!
