    Geez, are we up to four already? The new season starts on Friday. I'm posting this to remind myself as much as anything, though the DVR will hopefully pick it up auto like.

    Looking forward to seeing this opener. I take it that Rick Payne (Jay Mohr) is gone now since he has new series? or did I miss something?

    "I'll be back, safe and sound. Especially if my new show bombs out!" Yeah, he's moving to Gary Unmarried. Even if he doesn't end up coming back, it's nice to see a door not completely closed for a change.

    The opening shot was very nice, but Alona drove all thoughts of Jennifer out of my mind. Oh, Alona, how I love you. Why are you not a household name? Loved her with dirt on her face. She kind of reminded me of Olivia d'Abo like that, which is not even remotely a bad thing. On the other hand, stupid Marcos Ferraez for marrying Alona. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Love's jugs are back and jigglier than ever! [​IMG]

    Strong opener with a somewhat unexpected tearful goodbye between Payne and Melinda, I mean I knew he was a friend but she was one step away from flat-out bawling when he left.

    I think i'm going to like Jaime Kennedy here.

    Yes great opening shot indeed!

    I also was surprised by the tearful departure. But I am still a little confused on something though, the shadows at the end of last season and show at the beginning.

    I don't know what the original plan was, but I think it was used this time just to give some tension to scenes with Prof. Payne. "I bet he's dead in the campus offices! No, well, I bet he dies going to rescue Melinda in the archives! Nope. Well, I bet he's hit by a car coming over to say goodbye!"

    Yeah, I was waiting for his SUV to explode when he turned the key in the ignition, or an 18-wheeler to run a red light and take him out just as he turned the corner as he left. [​IMG]

    I originally assumed the missing shadow was there to foreshadow Payne's death, which would cover Mohr's departure for his new show. Now I'm wondering if it, along with the new "Watchers", isn't part of a new season-long arc that will ratchet up the jeopardy for all the characters other than Melinda from week to week, as we'll always be expecting somebody to die at some point. (And if Mohr's show is a monster hit, they can still pull the trigger on Payne in a final send-off episode. But from what I've seen of Gary Unmarried, I wouldn't be surprised to see Prof. Payne back in Grandview by Christmas. If I were Jaime Kennedy, I don't think I'd be in a hurry to unpack and settle in.

    Regards,

    I was hoping when Melinda confronted the dead guy's friends, they'd say, "How do you know what we did that summer?"

    Reasonably watchable episode, but nothing to write home about. I don't know that I like this Jaime Kennedy guy yet--whoever he is.

    Trippy episode tonight, Love looked particularly yummy in her virtual reality get-ups. [​IMG]

    It was also nice to Vanessa Marano again, she's one of the things I miss most about Gilmore Girls. April rocked.

    It got slightly better towards the end, but I hated the first thirty minutes. I was real close to shutting it off. I was hoping JLH would come out out of character to give a PSA about the dangers of online predators. Would have really added to the after-school special cheese.

    Ghosts
    Exciting and new
    Come aboard
    They're expecting you!

    Nice change of pace. I liked the sexy party girl ghost. Had to chuckle at her "you remind me of Audrey Hepburn" line. The whole premise could be cool for a series: Melinda signs on with a cruise line and has to deal with different ghost cruisers each week!

    We might be a little preggers.

    Very different episode and lots of fun, never tire of seeing Love in party dresses. [​IMG]

    And I think we might have a new addition to the brunettes thread, the girl who played the main ghost this week was incredibly attractive...

    Television Without Pity did a feature on "The Least Scary Supernatural Shows", which is really pretty lame since the author seems to assume that all supernatural shows are supposed to be scary - which is clearly not the case. (Given the standard used to judge the shows, I'm surprised that Caspar - The Friendly Ghost didn't make the cut.)

    Still, the description of GW (which came in at #6) was pretty amusing:

    6. Ghost Whisperer (2005-present)
    Maybe some of the ghosts on this show could have scared us by suddenly popping up and acting all creepy, but we were usually too distracted by obnoxious sidekick Jay Mohr (recently replaced by the equally obnoxious Jaime Kennedy) and/or Jennifer Love Hewitt's low-cut sundress to notice. Seriously, the scariest thing on that show is the fear that Hewitt might put on a turtleneck and the ratings would go down the toilet.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Joe,

    At least for me, I watch GW (oops) for different types of thrills than the scared kind....[​IMG]

    I meant to comment earlier on last week's episode. Way to estrogen soaked for me.....

    I know what you mean. OTOH it is always nice to see Amy Pietz, the only reason I ever watched an episode of Caroline in the City. [​IMG]

    "The whole place is a No Testosterone Zone, Crater Face!"

    Well, it looks like the producers lied. "David Conrad isn't going anywhere! We love him too much!" Stupid cop. What a moron. "With zero information, I'll shoot the silhouette currently holding the weapon!"

    Hopefully, DC is leaving because he got the role of Hal Jordan. Yeah, right.

    Edit: Or, maybe it's more complicated than it first appears. Spoilerish interview:

    The posters at the CBS forums are about to slit their wrists, but y'all are all, "Yeah, whatever." [​IMG]
