Do not forget that tonight is the season premier of Lost. I raved about this show pretty much all last season. If you haven't given it a chance yet, I strongly urge you to take a look.
Speaking of Lost, let me riff a bit about it. Apparently the entire reason we have so many Sci-Fi shows this season is because of the success of Lost. This just goes to show you exactly how clueless TV executives must be. Lost is an awesome show that just so happens to be have a Sci-Fi element to it. Yes, the Sci-Fi elements work as a hook, but it isn't what makes the show so great. It is the writing - specifically the back stories - and the interaction of the characters that make the show great. I'm not denying the hook of the premise behind Lost, but half-way through the season I found myself caring less and less about the Island and more about the people.
