Did anyone watch the long-awaited (perhaps too long) Touch? Even more preposterous than 24, but the way all those story strands made up ONE story...well, that was kind of cool.

That was my reaction too. The show's success depends upon the satisfaction generated by bringing the separate stories together, but that sounds like the kind of thing that can grow old very quickly. The plots are going to have to be VERY clever if this show is going to fly. But having almost totally new casts every week means we won't have to listen to that screechy flight attendant again.

The boy is 11 years old and has never spoken. Would he be able to if he wanted to? Do vocal chords atrophy from disuse?

Obviously not, since they voted him out last night. Jeff made a point of telling them they'd gotten rid of a player that almost everyone agreed was likable, a good provider, and loyal. In other words, how stupid can you get? This bunch is THE worst.

The Killing returns tonight. Last season's murder will FINALLY be cleared up in the first few episodes. Or so we're told.

I was surprised by how quickly I was drawn in again, as if there'd been no gap of months since the last episode. Holder has now definitely moved into the Bad Guys column, and Sloane (Barbara's guy Brian Markinson) is more than just his Narcotics Anonymous sponser. Lookin' good. grin

What is wrong with McGee's voice? It's getting worse. Last night he had almost no voice.

I absolutely loved last night's TAR...it was their best episode in a long, long time! The Indian dance task was wonderful, and they even played that catchy little tune through the closing credits. It was nice seeing the Kentucky boys finally survive, even if one was crippled and the other one sick. A very satisfying episode.

I wasn't too happy seeing Mark use his kids as an excuse to quit. The guy didn't need an excuse, he was clearly wiped out. But then he rallied and finished the Bollywood dance routine on his TWELFTH attempt. Bopper was the one that impressed me. He was so worried about Mark that he urged him to quit. He valued his friend more than the million dollars. I agree with Lorna...this was one of the best TAR episodes ever.

Yes, it was; no doubt about that. Bollywood, motorized rickshaws, cricket -- so much better than go there, find the clue, go on to the next clue. They're going to have to go some to top that episode.
