Haven't watched this week's Chuck yet, but did catch the finale of House. Meh. I think if Hugh Laurie wasn't so brilliant, I'd have given up on this show some time back. I just don't understand why any hospital would send its administrator and its top diagnostician (who walks with a cane) to a disaster site to help with triage. I realize that Princeton Plainsboro has only seven doctors on staff who must handle everything from random blood tests to crash trauma, though (not to mention emergency amputation surgery). Gah. I don't expect realism from any hospital show, but GAH. Even Scrubs paid more attention to details like that! (There was a whole episode involving how to handle touchy lab techs to get one's test results back faster.) I was floored a few weeks ago when Cuddy actually told House that his patient's "insurance won't cover that." "You mean... they HAVE medical insurance in this universe?! Never mentioned it before!" Even when running every test known to medical science on a homeless woman in her private hospital room.
At least as things go into repeats I can catch up on HIMYM.
Speaking of Chuck, Zachary Levi posted this picture, which I thought was nifty -- it's a picture of the Morocco coast taken from Spain.
CBS is moving The Big Bang Theory to the already over-crowded Thursdays. I had thought with FlashForward being canceled I could finally watch Community since Bones and Fringe are already holding down one of the DVR channels, but apparently it's not to be. Even as they take shows away from me they want to make sure I can't even watch those I still do... (Vaguely humorous side note: The shows that ABC has canceled are the ones I watched live. The ones which have been renewed are the ones I DVR and watch later. Heh. Go fig.)
Did enjoy LOST and am geared up for the finale. Will miss this show! Still mind-boggling that ABC gave this its full run. I guess lying and saying "Why, no, it's not a genre show! Everything will have a scientific explanation!" actually works... (Because there will always be scientific explanations for time traveling islands, alternate timelines, and immortal people.)
And this picture was found by someone who noted the fellow's amazing resemblance to Eddie Murphy! I love looking at old photos.
Cranky Kathy is cranky. And has to go to work now. Phoo.
