Dearly beloved tv shows....

Yesterday was Criminal Minds day. I got home late from work and only managed to watch the second half. *Sigh* It was the episode with the psycho kid. Mondays are always gonna be ‘full’ for me. Look at my schedule:

9.30 - 10.30: Criminal Minds (8TV)
10.00 - 11.00: House (AXN)
10.30 - 11.30: Prison Break / now LOST (8TV)
11.00 - 12.00: Nip/Tuck (AXN)

How am I supposed to watch everything like that? Lucky me, now Lost is showing instead, as Prison Break has ended its first season run on TV. Hmmm, must watch second season quick…. And Nip/Tuck is on till midnight, so that’s a pass as I need my sleep.

Today is Desperate Housewives day. And last week, I thought I could take my own sweet time and read the papers while waiting for DH to start on 8TV. I flipped through The Star, and there it was, a full page reminder to catch Grey’s Anatomy’s Second Season on NTV7 at 8.30. Waaaah! I looked at the clock and it was already 9! Damn it! Ran upstairs and plonked myself in front of the tv for that.

Recently with Animax on Astro, I find myself pressing Channel 75 at every available moment. I love to watch Paradise Kiss and Honey and Clover, which are incidentally today also!

My going on and on about tv is really crazy. I need more hours so that I can watch more tv!

Dr Reid, I love you....

So much for my operation: revival! That’s ok. I’ll just start over....

So yesterday, I watched one of my current favourite tv shows, Criminal Minds. I started watching like the third episode of the series and have missed about two in between then and yesterday’s 10th (I think) episode. The show is about a bunch of FBI profilers who work for the Behavioural Analysis Unit in Quantico. I think that’s what they originally named the series - Quantico. It was aired in September last year in the US (if I got my points right) and will now be on its second season.

Special Agent Jason Gideon (Mandy Patinkin)
Special Agent Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson)
Elle Greenaway (Lola Glaudini)
Special Agent Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore)
Special Agent Dr Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler)
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau, (AJ Cook)

Anyway, each of these profilers brings their own expertise to the group and they solve murders and kidnapping and such.

I love it because they’re a bunch of people who’ve got skills and solve each problem in a logical manner. They think like the criminal in order to catch the criminal. And they use cool lingo like unsub (unidentified subject).

No, I lied. I actually love the show because of Dr Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), the young genius with the three PhDs. Dr Reid is so cool in an uncool, nerdy, geeky sort of way. He’s just so 'comel' with his floppy hair parted and pushed behind his ears, and his sentences are just so adorable….

Agent Hotchner: This is Special Agent Dr. Reid.
Man: Oh, you look too young to have gone to medical school.
Dr Reid: They are Ph.D.'s, three of them.
Man: What, are you a genius or something?
Dr Reid: I don't believe that intelligence can be accurately quantified, but I do have an IQ of 187, an eidetic memory, can read 20,000 words per minute.
Dr Reid: Yes, I'm a genius.

Long live Criminal Minds….
