It could be OK, depending how it's handled, but I'm afraid we're going to get an "all in the autistic boy's mind" ending from BSG.

You say that like it's a bad thing. That's my favorite television show ending in the history of the world!

haha, I know I've linked to it before, several times in fact, but after you take into account character cross-overs and various wink-wink 'verse-related references, you can eventually prove that almost every network television show ever made took place in that autistic kid's mind.

I'm pretty sure that's how they're gonna end Lost.

So... it's not like 2007 is going anywhere.  Why can't Hiro stay and bone the princess for a while?

Also, why would he leap back to the convienent point where the story is and not to right after he vanished?

And word on Mohinder being the dumbest ever.

In other news, I have just spotted my fifth Big Lebowski reference in Veronica Mars. At this point, I'm sure they're doing it just to amuse me, personally.

Sixth! And I still have another 10 episodes to go.

Are you counting "special lady friend" every time it pops up? I don't think those should all count. (My guess is you aren't; six is too low a number to include them.)

This is my list.

1.Wallace's dad refers to Mrs. Fennel as Kieth's old lady. He responds, “she's not my old lady, she's my special lady friend.”
2.Veronica and Duncan actually watching the film. She can recite the dialogue, he's bored, and Logan wishes they waited for him.
3.At the bowling alley, Vinnie van Lowe offers to get Veronica a beer. She reminds him that “this is not Nam. This is bowling. There are rules.”
4.At the college, Logan bumps into Veronica. She says “hey, man, there's a beverage here.”
5.When the college football guy threatens the artists, Larry, who has his workbook, he tells him, “Larry, you're entering a world of pain”.
6.The rich wheelchair guy and his assistant (who is even named Brant) – that whole scene and a half with Brant and the photos on the wall, and taking Kieth to the wheelchair-bound rich dude is pretty crazy.


Spoilerified, as playing spot-the-reference is much more fun than actually watching. My favourite Veronica Mars reference, though, so far, is the Rocky Horror shout-out in season two.

Does it still count if it's actually spelled out in the scene? If so here's my favorite.

I watched the final episode of Season 3 of House last night.  Chase and Cameron are gone!  HELLS!  YES!  Foreman's gone, too, though, but I guess it's a fair trade to see Blandy Girl and Boy From Oz take off.  I look forward to their replacement by Kumar.

Eh...the new season hasn't been too hot.  Kumar is pretty good in the new episodes, but all the old doctors are still part of the show, and have increasing roles the deeper we get into the season.  Foreman is back to being a full-fledged main character again... the episodes have been downright wacky though, I haven't been completely digging it so far.

I agree that House hasn't quite been up to par, but it hasn't been bad either. There was one episode where the Wilson and House had some classic repartee (the one where Wilson stole his guitar), but other than that, there haven't been as many good House one-liners as usual. I haven't watched this week's episode yet.

OH SHIT YALL WHO WATCHED WEEDS THIS IS GONNA GET GOOD

SHANE WTF

Yeah, I was a dope and had spoiled myself on this because I read that:

the show's asking Jeffrey Dean Morgan (who played Judah, and Denny, and Pa Winchester) to come back next season.  I'm torn because I think it's awesome, but I also really, really hate JDM.

I haven't watched Heroes, but I hear that many fewer people get comeuppances in that show.  Why should I bother?  It's not like the phrase "YOU GOT HEROED" even makes that much sense.

And by the way, I recently read the best House script ever over on metafilter.

Heroes just has been endlessly disappointing over the course of the last four episodes. I don't know. I'm just not really feeling it this season.
