bill-swift - September 27, 2005
So I'm back from Australia now, and I've had a chance to catch up on most of my favourite shows that I missed (thank God for BitTorrent). I enjoyed the first three episodes of The O.C., but I'm not sure if it's on its way up or down. I fell asleep during Gilmore Girls, but I was tired, so I'll give it another shot, and the season opener of The West Wing was borderline fantastic. I've got a lot more shows to catch up on, but at least I've got a lot of time on my hands.
One show that struck me as being pretty interesting is Surface. It's a bit like Lost meets X-Files, and revolves around mysterious creatures living in the sea who may, or may not, be from outer space. I just finished watching the first episode, and I can't wait to watch the second. Also, the show stars one of my favourite (Eastern European) actors Rade Serbedzija (also written as Serbedgia, Serbedjija, and Sherbedgia - as he is credited on Surface), Leighton Meester (who will surely be featured on Egotastic! soon), and Lake Bell, formerly of Boston Legal. I encourage you all to watch this show, as it may have the potential of becoming a serious competitor for Lost. And if the premise of the show doesn't seem to interest you, maybe these Lake Bell pictures will.
