The Televixen’s Back!

Hello my television-loving friends! I’m back!

This fall has been so busy, but my oh my, has there been some great TV. I’ve been enjoying Season Five of Entourage, which has proved once again that Jeremy Piven is worth every single Emmy to date; and I was so happy to see the return of Eli Stone in one of the best premieres this year!

What else has this Televixen been watching? It’s more like what haven’t I been watching! Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles has taken some interesting turns, and I am happy it’s been picked up for the entire season. Summer Glau’s performances in recent eps has brought a new dimension to this show. I’m also one of the people who has decided to stick with Heroes, and was very intrigued by last week’s ending. I was excited about this season early on, from the sneak preview screening I attended. In case you missed my article about the sneak preview, you can read it at The TV Addict. There are still some storylines that I don’t see the point of yet, but there have been enough twists, turns, and revelations to keep me committed to seeing this season through.

In keeping with the theme of heroes and villains, I’m interviewing Cassidy Freeman later today. Cassidy is Smallville’s new bad girl, Tess Mercer. I’ll have a link to that article later in the week, and more of my musings on the current TV season.
