What can I say about Glee that hasn't been said for the last six months? It's fun, it's super cheesy but it's also inconsistent writing wise and the characters are not always sympathetic. Then again, this is something that can be said about virtually every show in existence. Still, the final two episodes got us to Regionals and they were fun. I could've done without seeing Rachel getting egged by Vocal Adrenaline and while the writers eradicated any sympathy I might have had for Jesse, the boy certainly floored Bohemian Rhapsody perfectly and that is not an easy song to pull off. Interestingly, the finale's version of Don't Stop Believing was far better done than the start of the series. Still I wasn't surprised with Sue's change of heart, Quinn giving birth tied into a musical number or that New Direction would lose at Sectionals but I could've done without the Will/Emma rubbish. I predict a love triangle next season that I won't be all that interested in.
I still can't believe that Channel 4 are about four episodes behind with Irish viewers with Desperate Housewives. The last couple of episode have been something of a mixed bag but the finale was pretty enjoyable actually. I loved that this year it was Gabby who got caught involved in the main mystery and I even bought her friendship with Angie more than Angie/Bree earlier in the season. So, seeing Patrick blown to pieces in his car because Angie put the bomb in the detonator was clever. I'm gonna miss the Bolens, though it makes perfect sense to exit them from Wisteria Lane. As for Lynette - why is that she had more of a convincing rapport with sociopath Eddie than she ever had with any of her own children? And she gave birth in this one. However there were some boring storylines of the finale too - Susan/Mike moving from the neighbourhood wasn't moving and I didn't care that Orson tired off Bree and dumped her. However I do hope the writers know what they're doing with bringing Paul Young back into the neighbourhood next season.
Smallville came back for a ninth season on E4 recently and to be honest, it's been a while since I've truly cared about the show. I mean, I can enjoy the episodes but there was a time when this was must see TV, rather than catch it if I'm bothered TV. Clark's still pulling the same stuff with the blur, confusing Lois and alienating Chloe at the same time, Oliver isn't really doing much and Tess is still in way over her head. On the plus side, the first few episodes have given us both Metallo and Zod, both of them working reasonably well, though Zod is clearly the one to watch out for the most.
