The hatch on "Lost" to the WB for Chad Michael Murray: The hatch has been one plot device too many for the increasingly-convoluted "Lost." Imagine relocating it to "Gilmore Girls" -- wouldn't those Friday night family dinners be spiced up if you threw in an automatic weapons cache and a doomsday clock? And since "One Tree Hill" probably won't survive into the WB/UPN merged CW network, might as well let Murray fulfill his destiny as Gaby's new boytoy on "Desperate Housewives."You can read the whole column here. Haven't watched "Grey's" yet, but "Battlestar Galactica" did a good job with the obligatory "Die Hard" rip-off episode. (And is it a sign that I'm getting old that I immediately thought "Die Hard," while most of the message board posts I've read are referencing "24"?) Dana Delany was great as the aggrieved hostage-taker (and did the credits people make a typo or has she started spelling her name Delaney?), and I liked that Starbuck's convenient presence on the ship didn't save the day, and actually made things worse. Sci-Fi sent me an advance copy of the Lucy Lawless episode that's airing in two weeks, and while I understand the next episode is stand-alone, I'm still trying to watch them in order, and the wait is killing me. It's like someone gave me a plate of brownies and said I couldn't have one until my birthday (which is in October).
Since there's nothing new on tonight and I'm boycotting the Olympics for as long as my bosses will let me, I'm saving "Grey's Anatomy" for this evening and will blog about it tomorrow.
