How I'm surviving the WGA strike

A recent poll indicates that more than 60 percent of people don’t feel bothered or inconvenienced at all by the writers’ strike. I don’t quite fall into that camp, because pop TV, which I unashamedly adore, is now increasingly a cesspool of annoying reality shows (including Election 2008 nonsense). I’m missing Heroes in particular, and shortly, I’ll be missing The Sarah Connor Chronicles. But regardless, Deb and I are surviving nicely, thank you very much, on older TV series available on DVD. Right now, we’re plowing through all three seasons of Veronica Mars, which I enjoyed first run but Deb somehow missed; tonight, we’ll watch the seventh episode of season two. And on my own, I’ve been re-experiencing Babylon 5, slowly sipping at its first season and anticipating the wonders of seasons two through five. Coming up: revisits to Nowhere Man, La Femme Nikita, The Prisoner, the Emma Peel Avengers, and Firefly.

Have you ever seen Wonderfalls? I heard good reviews about this but never caught it on TV. Apparently Tim Minear was one of the producers, and it lasted only half a season, and feature Jewel Staite. I don't even know if it's on DVD, but since you mentioned quality pop TV I thought you might have heard of the show.

Anders, Wonderfalls is on DVD and it's great. Very odd, but great nonetheless. Charming, too.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. However think about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field.
