Fall television

The fall television lineup starts this week. I'm actually looking foward to it more than I have in a while. After we get Parker fed, bathed, and in bed, about all I have energy for is a little mindless TV. None of the new shows have piqued my interest yet.

Heroes: Season premiere is tonight. Despite a very sub par season finale last year, I'm still interested in the show and the characters. Did Peter and Nathan Petrelli survive? Where did Hiro Nakamura land? Is Sylar alive? Who are Maya and Alejandro, introduced in the latest graphic novelette? Who is this Tekezo Kensei that's being hyped at the Yamagato Fellowship web site? Who is the character that Molly is more afraid of than Sylar?

Scrubs: Scrubs suffered last year with the late season start, but it's still one of the funniest shows on television. It has something that is lacking in a lot of sit-coms; both great wit and great heart. So, what does the future hold for J.D., Elliot and J.D.'s baby's momma, Kim? Unfortunately, Scrubs doesn't start for another month.

The Office: NBC has a great series of web exclusives showing how the characters "spent their summer." They answered a few questions, but really just whetted my appetite for more. What's the future of Jim and Pam? How will the Ryan/Micheal Scott dynamic play out? Dinkin' flicka!

Monkey Birthday!

It was a Monkey Birthday weekend at the Roaches as Parker celebrated his second birthday with family and friends and a big bouncy thingey. I like to think the highlight was the new swingset and slide that Parker got from his Mom and Dad and Grandpa and Nana. I spent most of Friday putting it together then on Saturday decorated his Monkey Birthday Cake. Yes, I am a Renaissance Man. I make Cathy call me that now.
