Pushing Daisies

Crime reduces innocence; makes everyone angry, I declare.

(plus a few other things, because I'm starting to perfect the art of speed-reviewing.)

Insert: HEY, GUESS WHAT'S NEWLY UP ON THE INTERNET?  Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: Condensed.  Go, read it and be euphoric!!  And/or laughing so hard your ribs break.

A. The Office: 5.04, "Crime Aid"
OK. I have reached a calming point about my feelings for this episode by the following statement: this was a pretty good episode of Office Lite - a show which is clearly inferior to the usual one - but adjusting for automatically lower quality/standards all around, there were enjoyable parts. Better than the last two weeks of Office Lite, anyway.

B. Pushing Daisies: 2x04, Frescorts

I liked Emerson's backstory more than I thought I would, actually - I'd rather see Young Emerson than Young Ned or Young Chuck any day - but I don't have time to dwell on that because I have to headsmack Ned with a stapler.

C. Law & Order: SVU - Lunacy? Is that what this one was called?

And now I'm doing mini-reviews. Ones where I restrict myself to no more than three paragraphs of whatever most pressing points I can remember, having watched the episodes while cleaning/getting ready/etc. and pointedly not allowing myself to take notes. There is no exhaustive detail here, but just a brief sketch to put my Future Self at ease, who will be extremely distressed if she goes back to see what she thought of a particular episode and finds nothing at all.

D. NCIS: Nine Lives

E. CSI: NY: 5x04, "Sex, Lies and Silicone"

By the way, when I said I might temporarily scrap TV, I think what I meant was that I might temporarily scrap Private Practice, Grey's Anatomy, and CSI. I always leave them til last anyway, because so much goes on in them that I get bogged down, and it might be better if I just let them go for the time being. House, Bones, Without a Trace and ER are circling the drain too, depending on my future mood - I just don't look forward to them enough.
