Brand New Shows, Brand New Obsessions  
Close To Home -- Intriguingly intense. After tonight's episode (being the series premiere) I'm officially hooked. Annabeth Chase (played by actress Jennifer Finnigan) makes a stunning and believable performance, completely thrilling to see such dedication from such a powerful woman. And Buffyverse fans will recognize her husband Jack Chase (played by Christan Kane). I have a feeling I'm going to love this show as it moves forward. Tonight's episode blew me away, and hopefully the next one will do the same.

Criminal Minds -- Another series that I'm beginning to like as each episode airs. The main character, played by Mandy Patinkin, is phenomenal with his profiling skills. This is the kind of crime show that focuses on the subject of getting into the criminal's minds, which is very intriguing and interesting to me, personally. Really liking what I'm seeing so far.

Supernatural -- Okay, I'm admitting I haven't actually sat down and watched an episode through-and-through quite yet -- but I'm trusting my sister's instincts saying that it's the freakiest and most creepifying show she's ever seen, and yet she continues taping it because it's too enthralling. Or perhaps it could be because it has Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles starring as the two main characters, which I'm not blaming her or even complaining one bit. However, watching it during the daylight is probably the best way to watch this new WB series. But, then again, what fun would that be?

Ghost Whisperer -- Truth be told, I'm not that enthralled by this show even though some storylines are somewhat interesting. While I don't have a personal gripe with Jennifer Love Hewitt, her character in this show seems so -- blah. She seems too damn patient and cardboard-like -- which I'm relieved that it isn't competing against my beloved Medium, because at least that show has the main character have real emotions and real drama in her life. Unlike JLH's character, who is just too....patient. Eh. I'll see how this new series progresses, though I'm not going to be rushing to the TV screen to watch it each week.

In other news, I watched Gracie's Choice starring Kristen Bell and Anne Heche eariler today. Wow! Kristen's performance in this movie shined, and this definitely proves how incredibly talented (not to mention adorable!) she is. Also, I'm a sucker for inspirational Lifetime movies -- and just Lifetime movies in general, really. I recommend this to everyone, because you really do feel for Kristen's character and for the situation she's placed in the middle of.

Actually, this one episode of Outer Limits wins at most creepifying TV for me. But yes! Supernatural = EXCELLENT and should be seen in the daylight! Because it will still freak you out!

Hell, next week's episode is going to involve the Bloody Mary legend. EEEEEEP!

I am glad someone watched Close to Home. I was stuck at a meeting 1 hour longer then I intended and I don't get cable until next week but it was showing on the one channel I get. I am glad it was good. Christian is a great actor and I love Jennifer Finnigan.
