- the television has eaten my life
- July 14th, 2010
I am officially in love with Auggie Anderson.
Okay, maybe I should back up just a wee bit or two. Tonight the new USA series Covert Affairs premiered. Was it good? Darn tootin' it was.
The main character, CIA greenhorn Annie Walker, is played by the lovely Piper Perabo, and once I stopped expecting her to slip into a British accent and start screaming for Luce, she was pretty cool. And just plain pretty. Then there were some other people, including Annie's boss, who is supposedly named "Joan" but is clearly Nate's ex-wife Maggie, so I will from now on think of her as such. Amber the Cut-Throat Bitch is Annie's sister. And apparently Mohinder's going to be joining the cast too. Also, I'm pretty sure the reporter lady was once a werewolf, but that is neither here nor there.
And then there was Auggie. Auggie, Auggie, Auggie. The awesomely awesome blind techie. I already liked this guy from the previews, but I had no idea he would be this great. He's at least sixty-three percent of the reason I set a series recording for this show on the DVR.
For those of you who don't know me--basically, anyone reading this--my life has come to revolve around television shows. While this is most certainly unhealthy and pathetic, it does keep my entertained. And while my regular shows have ended for the season, my summer shows are all just getting started. Let's hear it for cable networks.
There's Leverage, which is a few weeks in and is already full of hijinks and capers and pretzels (♥!!). Also Drop Dead Diva, which I probably shouldn't admit to watching but do anyway. The Glades looks like it might have potential. And White Collar finally started back up again tonight, too, and that was quite spiffy indeed. (I was certainly pleased with that--I have missed darling Neal and Peter.)
But possibly most important is Psych, the fifth season of which kicks off tomorrow (well, technically today). FINALLY. I absolutamentally love that show. I actually just bought the first three seasons, which is actually quite a big deal, because I never buy DVDs. Seriously. I don't own too many as it is, and I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've actually bought them for myself instead of receiving them as gifts. I love the show that much. In fact, I might even go so far as to say it is my favorite show. Say whaaaat.
So, while most may say that I need to lay off the tube and get a real life, I say that...well, actually, I would say that too. But I would also say that it's looking to be a pretty good summer.
