If there's one thing that can distract from recent crappiness, it's the new Fall TV season. Tonight the new season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles starts. Last season was OK, but I wasn't really planning on watching this one. That is, until I heard who was joining the cast.
Shirley fucking Manson! I fell in love with her the moment I first saw the video for Garbage's Queer way back in 1995. She's got that little bit of ugliness that actually enhances her beautifulness, and that heartbreaking singing voice with just a hint of Scottish accent. Ahhhh. I didn't know she could act too; maybe she can't, but I'll be tuning in (*) to find out.
The show also has the always-awesome and sometimes-attractive Summer Glau in it.
And yeah, I know, for a busy grad student, I watch too much TV. But must I remind you that part of my research is studying reactions to media like TV and movies? It's all for science.
(*)I like how "tuning in" is still used even though television hasn't required tuning of any kind in decades.
Correction: It premiered last week but I missed it. If only the technology was available to somehow get, like, a torrent of the bits that make up the show, so I can catch up and continue to watch it.
