Curse you quality television!

So I have heard the lament a number of times lately including in one of my favorite web comic, pvponline. The issue is that somehow we have started to have decent shows begin to show up on TV. Perhaps it is the backlash against reality shows. Or maybe it is chaos theory at work. Who knows? All I know is there is a preponderance of good shows all of sudden.

There are in fact so many that it is being problematic in that I try not to be watching too much TV. The quality offerings however are not only enough to make me watch, but now I have to look at the scheduling issues. Ah I am glad the Internet is there to help me keep up.

Lets see. Here is a list of shows I have been watching this year

Blade the series,
Stargate
Stargate Atlantis
Battlestar galactica
Who wants to be a super hero?
Doctor who
Eureka
Lost
Smallville
Prison break
Heroes
Jericho
Studio 60 on the sunset strip
Avatar the last air bender


I would watch the 4400 except that I have missed so much I have no idea where everything is. I also watch Dead zone when I can but I don’t catch it often. I also enjoy watching My Name Is Earl but I don’t go out of my way to see it I just catch it when it is on.

That is a lot of TV though. I am certain I am missing some things. Anyways I am pleased by the reversal of fortunes and the good TV that is out there, but it does feel as if I am betraying a bit of my intellectual street cred by spending so much time watching TV. Oh well I guess I will bear up.

How is Blade doing? I saw the pilot and was impressed, but lost track.
