How is Midseason Looking?

Get ready for more of these douchebags.

Not too good. Well, at least not at first. With the fall being kind of a wash—no new shows have really excited me to the point that I’ve kept up with any of them—I was hoping things were going to pick up for midseason. It looks like I’m going to have to wait a little longer.

Actually, maybe it won’t be so bad. Dollhouse debuts February 13. If it stays on the air past February, I’ll consider that a triumph. Other than that, the shows I’m kind of excited about—definitely Harper’s Island (I saw a screener promo and was intrigued) and Kings (looks crazy!), maybe even Castle—are looking more like late March/early April debuts. It’s okay. I’ll read some books in January and February. Or maybe I’ll figure out where all my cable channels are and start watching the critically acclaimed shows on FX, AMC, and Sci Fi that people keep bugging me about.

After the jump, I cobbled together a midseason schedule—as best I could, since some networks don’t really seem to be settled with everything yet **coughABCcough**—and added my $0.02 about the (crappy) new winter debuts.

Battlestar Galactica + New Pornographers: Too much of good things

It’s odd that the fusion of two things I love (or, well, one thing I love and one thing who I think is pretty good), can become such a monstrosity.

I recently came across this fan-made clip of Battlestar Galactica favorite Starbuck acting dramatic to a soundtrack by the New Pornographers. While this must have been a labor of love, it comes across as sentimental and melodramatic.  Like a Freddie Prinze, Jr. movie or one of those Army commercials they show before movies these days.

If these things-I-love-mergers are going to be like this, I guess this doesn’t bode well for my hopes of Jake Gyllenhaal starring in that David Rakoff biopic.  Or chocolate-covered Indian food.  Or a hoodie that dispenses Jack Daniels. Or a half-puppy, half robot.

Actually the robo-puppy sounds incredible (no poop!).
