After accumulating 10 episodes of the TV show Lie to Me on my DVR, I finally started watching. The premise, the acting and the writing instantly hooked me. I wish I'd paid attention to this well-written show sooner, but at the same time, I'm excited that I have eight more episodes to look forward to, and then the new season will begin. Suddenly, the void left by the season finale of The Closer several weeks ago has been filled.
So, anyway. Long story long: I have a new TV show to watch that is sure to inspire the writer in me as much as The Closer and the shows I miss so much, such as Buffy, Angel, Six Feet Under, The X-Files (in the early days), NYPD Blue, Farscape and Battlestar Galactica. Of course, now that Leno's parked on NBC, I know I won't be finding any new inspiration there. Not that I'm bitter. Disappointed, though? Definitely.
