I knew that emoticon would eventually prove to be good for something else. Maybe this one, too:

I think that first emotion is for really tasty food but I can see its use here as well. And, haven't you heard, all men are

I watched the first night and recorded the rest but haven't watched them yet. DH is out of town for a couple days, so I'm going to try to watch them before he gets back. He doesn't seem to have enjoyed the first episode as much as I did, but then it's sports ball season

Andy, I think "Forever" won't last longer than one season - if that. It might be this year's "Mind Games". However, as you and Steve seem to think "Scorpion" is watchable for Sarah Shahi, I'll enjoy every episode of Ioan Gruffudd "Forever".

I didn't, but Himself did. Not one to get out of his chair while TV-viewing, and not much of a talker, it seemed like Himself came into the kitchen (where ELSE would I be??? ) during every commercial break to laugh over some flaw in the writing, chortling in disbelief over how wrong they got stuff from the way it works in the real world. The worse part is as he launched into what he had just seen, I would finish off his sentence by saying the correct way. That was so wrong because I have nowhere close to his knowledge regarding tech and science. I guess the writers want you to suspend reality for the hour the show is on?

Yup, it's ALWAYS "sports ball season". Well, unless you're a hockey fan. I'll have to remember that phrase for future use.

Sarah Shahi is actually on "Person of Interest," but since you were busy ogling Ioan Guffaw Elmerfudd Gruffudd, we'll forgive you for the error.

As I mentioned above, it does stretch your logic a bit.

Just turned it on and watching it now. I had to clear some space to record the rest of the series. I love that Peter Coyote is narrating it, I just love his voice.

I thought that was the reason to watch TV...I've been watching TV wrong all these years. Suspension of disbelief is where it's at...I guess modern audiences want reality shows...I get enough reality life.
