TV :sheepish:

I kind of dig the new Knight Rider movie/pilot thingamajig. The original series was tacky and cheesy, and the movie... was pure, grade-A Velveeta, with 80's techno-crap soundtrack, lingering car-porn shots, and every other thing that made the original series so magically delicious.

Please, God, that when they pick up the series, they don't try to turn it into something turgid and deep. I mean, it's KNIGHT RIDER, for crying out loud. Let it be its own bad self, k? That's what makes it amusing, and I need something amusing on TV!

On the quality level... man, Monk totally delivered in the season finale. I mean, great mystery, nice character work, some light moments, and a little sliver of the arc. That's how to do an arc--just touch on it now and then, and know it's there, but do episodes that a new viewer can pick up on. I sure wouldn't have been able to pick up the series in season four if the whole thing had been about the search for Trudy's killer.

And Psych... I love you, you silly thing, but you play your secrets badly. I spotted the oncoming "surprise" at the end of the season about four episodes ago. It's weirdly charming, in that it's a very child-like way to play a secret, but please don't try it again. It will only work once.

Dear USA Network: Six weeks is not a season. It just isn't.
