(9:52 PM) | Adam Kotsko:
Monday Prison Break BloggingWorst episode ever?
The first half of the season was really getting frustrating, then they totally redeemed it when Kellerman shot Mahone and joined the rebel alliance. With this episode, they have officially exhausted that store of grace, and next week I will return to watching out of sheer stubbornness rather than out of breathless anticipation.
Hopefully they won't reach the level of Bones, though, which I only watch out of depression and self-loathing -- sitting through an episode of Bones is my way of telling myself that I've given up and will be in front of the TV the whole night. But I must admit: for a show featuring the most boring actor of our generation (an appelation I owe to Mike Schaefer) and a woman who is basically a walking cliche (the scientist who doesn't understand emotions!), it's actually surprisingly good.
In other news, 24 was also pretty boring tonight. Plus now they're picking on the new love of my life, the swarthy Arab analyst Nadia -- played by Marisol Nichols, a Mexican. (I feel like I should be linking to some kind of Unfogged comment thread here.)
