Anybody keeping up with Carnivale ? I, myself, have some catching up to do.

Also Six Feet Under will be back in June. I'm sad about the show ending (or is it?) but I can't wait for 5th season.

You may be aware of it already but I just found this website that looks to be a pretty good resource for TV and film.
Careful though, if you don't like spoilers. I've already found a few for the upcoming Six Feet Under season.

I'm not a huge television person, I really only watch a few shows. I always catch Arrested Development (man this show is funny), Desperate Housewives, Gilmore Girls, Carnivale, and Project Runway (addicting show) are really the only shows that I watch, consistantly anyway.

Carnivale has been so good this season. I was still a little mystified by it the first few episodes of this season but now many questions from last season are being answered. The episode that aired this past Sunday was so good, I can't wait until this Sunday to see what happens next.

Speaking of television shows, it was really nice to finally have a new episode of Gilmore Girls. It's been at least a month since a new episode aired (I don't know if it has been the same everywhere). I missed having something to watch on Tuesdays.
How lovely and how doomed this connection of everyone with lungs.

i mocked "lost" at first but am now relatively sucked in. i seem to have suspended a majority of my disbelief about things like why are polar bears on a tropical island and why these people continue to look relatively clean-shaven and have fairly clean & coiffed hair, considering their situation. especially the aloof, cheesy-hollywood-handsome bad guy who keeps stealing stuff - his hair always looks like he just stepped out of an expensive west hollywood salon. ok, maybe i haven't suspended as much disbelief as i thought... but as long as that tasty dish naveen andrews is around, it's all much easier to take :lol:

dance 360 is only the coolest dance battle show on tv!!!! ok, so it's probably the ONLY dance battle show on tv, but i'm weirdly addicted to it. it's a bizarre fixation, but if anyone cares to take a look (i dare you!), you can check out http://www.dance360.net. it just might scratch an itch you never knew you had...

I love American Idol. Last week Simon told 3 blond, talented, hot, triplets..."you're too fat". Too funny. I guess even he has already forgotten about that huge, gasping, profusely sweating guy that looks like Al Roker that won a season or two back.

OMG--I finally caught up. The past show was so intense. Great focus on so many of the characters. Good 'n' creepy.
