What I Watched Last Night (10/15/10)TV
The Defenders, "Las Vegas v. Reid" - This second episode was just as slick and fun as the pilot. I'm not really into this show yet, but the leads are charming and charismatic and it's some nice escapist fun. And the cases were surprisingly interesting, although I don't even want to ask if they were at all legally plausible.
The Mentalist, "The Blood on His Hands" - Rigsby seems to have a new girl! His scene with Van Pelt in the car was great - they're both really solid, understated actors. Yes, I apparently care about that subplot more than about the murder. I never liked Kristina Frye much, so I can't bring myself to get too worked up about her story, but I was happy that the cult stuff was back. And I'm always happy to see Rebecca Field and Eric Winter pop up.
Better With You, "Better With Ben" - Super Sensitive Steve in the B plot was awfully reminiscent of Ted Mosby, no? Anyway, the A plot was cute, about whether Ben is considered part of the family, as seen through the Christmas card. And this family is nutty about their Christmas cards. Anyway, I'm still really liking this show, mostly because of the interactions between the various characters. I wouldn't say it went so far as to make me laugh or anything crazy like that, but I smiled a few times.
Hawaii Five-0, "Malama Ka Aina" - Honestly, I tend to watch this at the end of the evening and not pay all that much attention to the details of the plot. I mostly appreciate the pretty, both of the actors and the setting. I was excited about the football bit in this one, and I'm still loving the bromance between O'Loughlin and Caan.Posted by Kat at October 15, 2010 11:00 AM
