The Pilots Are Coming, The Pilots Are Coming!


Today a lot of networks began releasing pilot episodes of their shows online, through  sites like Hulu. A few returning shows even put their season premiere episodes today. And a couple of, unfortunate, shows got their premiere episodes leaked online. Plus, I’ve been getting all kinds of invites to attend public screenings in my area of the new fall shows.

So what does this all mean? It means I’ll be writing reviews of some of the premiere and pilot episodes of this fall season.  I’ll probably start tomorrow by doing a review of The Mindy Project’s season premiere (which I’m watching now).

Let the fall show season begin!


Music Monday: A Lover I Don’t Have To Love by Bright Eyes

Often, a part of a lyric will intoxicate our minds. Then the fever sets in, and our obsession grows. We must hear this song. Only then will our fever cease. That is how I feel about ‘A Lover I Don’t Have to Love’ by Bright Eyes today. It’s one of those songs where the lyrics are part tragic and part beautiful.  It’s not quite a pop song, but not entirely rock. Some happy medium. The lyrics, to me, represent the consequences of addiction. I see the song as telling a story about using addiction, whether substance or sex, to mask real emotions.  It’s such a beautiful and haunting song. So this Music Monday is dedicated to the mesmerizing and tragic, ‘Lover I Don’t Have to Love.’
