    Aaah, goddamnit, you're right.

    Watched the Doctor Who Christmas special. Especially enjoyed Gambon and how Moffat twisted Dickens' tale about, but if I'm being honest I was more excited for the season six trailer than anything else.

    I've just started watching Fringe actually. Is it worth sticking with?

    I frankly thought that, apart from Gambon, it was nothing special...season 6 does look awfully awesome though...mind you, all the coming season trailers look fairly awesome.

    I thought that the christmas special was above season 5 on the whole, as the Doctor actually got back to being clever, which is something that Moffat didn't really seem to think important up to this point.

    Encephalo Ray:
    Fringe goes from monster-of-the-week-with-charming-cast to Unmissably Good in the space of about a season. Other than one dodgy musical ep, most of them are at least good, and from Season 2 on they're some of the best done SF I've ever seen on TV. And Anna Torv's performance, considered wooden at the start of the show, becomes something truly amazing.

    finally got around to watchng Dirk Gently today and really dug it. very much liked the lead fella. hope they make more.

    the Who xmas special was ok. some of gambon's dialogue was great.

    Working on getting the Dirk Gently thing on my computer over here. Just caught the two newest episodes of Top Gear, and loved them. Can't wait for the whole season!

    I'm going to have to get back into Fringe. I had dropped it around the end of season 2. You guys talking it up is making me want to go back.

    Southland is coming back next month and I am really looking forward to that.

    I say Fringe is worth sticking to...if my disembodied internet opinion is worth anything. Overall, it's a lot more hits than misses.

    Southland had some decent performances, but in the end, it's another in a long list of cop shows. How many cop shows do we have/need, really?

    We need one more that's now gone. I really miss The Good Guys.

    OK, You got me there, Good Guys definitely was more than just another cop show.

    Speaking of another cop show...

    The city of Chicago is a paradox that serves as the setting for Shawn Ryan's new drama, THE CHICAGO CODE. In this series, the audience is the passenger, taking an unpredictable ride through the streets of Chicago and navigating crime and corruption with the most respected - and notorious - cops in the city.

    Apparently Shawn Ryan changed the name recently from "Ride Along" but he says it has nothing to do with how nobody understood what Terriers was about by the name.
    Although, as a former Chicago resident, I always thought there was a shortage of TV Dramas that took place in the Windy City, so I'll at least check it out.

    Like one commentor said,
    there's no way in hell there will ever be a superintendent that looks like Jennifer Beals. Seriously, let's look at the last three
