What have you been watching this week (w/e April 30)

Sorry, sorry. I know. Very late. Grumble, grumble, excuse, excuse. It’s here now, and should be back to normal time on Friday. Sorry.

  • Chuck: Some nice moments, but a bit too sweetly unlikely in places. A bit more research of Paris and France might have been nice, though, plus ETA terrorists speaking Spanish with a Mexican accent? What’s going on there?
  • Community: Funny. Those teenagers needed a good punching though.
  • Cougar Town: Mildly entertaining but some forward plot progress.
  • House: In a reversal to last week, the patient was interesting, the doctor relationships weren’t. Still not bad though.
  • Parenthood: Fun. I have not much else to say on this, other than it’s nice to finally get more of a female viewpoint and to see Monica Potter doing more.
  • Rome: Finished watching the second season. Definitely not as good as the first – too dark and the effects of sticking the original plots for seasons two and three together and into season two once the producers knew the show had been cancelled made everything far too rushed. But it got better towards the end, and was still very good.
  • Stargate Universe: Loving the fact that this has become the “Stargate: Worst Case Scenarios” show. Whenever you watched Stargate: SG1 you always tended to think to yourself, “Wow. That was lucky. What would have happened if they’d lucked out there?” Stargate Universe shows you week in, week out, just how screwed SG1 would have been. Lovely. Also loving the fact they’ve finally decided to give everyone decent backstories. Starting to become the show I look forward to most each week.
  • Supernatural: Better than the previous week and good to see Mark Sheppard back, out-acting everyone in sight. But this close to season end, you’d have thought Lucifer would be a bit more front and centre, wouldn’t you?
  • 24: Chugging along relatively well for the last two weeks, but not quite as exciting as I’d hope this late in the day.
  • 30 Rock: Funny, but not very memorable.

But what did you watch?

As always, no spoilers unless you’re going to use the <spoiler> </spoiler> tags, please. If you’ve reviewed something on your blog, you can put a link to it here rather than repeat yourself (although too many links and you might get killed by the spam filter).
