TV fan watch

The new fall season is kicking me around. So much to watch! Haven't even gotten around to discussing Heroes yet.

Anyone out there been watching FlashForward? If so, is it worth watching?


Iran, Primeval, and cider

"That's rational, isn't it? Shouldn't the American media infuse its coverage with some of that same skepticism, along with a similar desire to see actual evidence to support the claims being made? Isn't that exactly the lesson every rational person should have learned from the Iraq War?"

* 'Obama already got more from one buffet lunch with Iran than Bush did in 8 years of saber-rattling.'
* "A report by the European Union on last year's brief but nasty war between Russia and Georgia confirms what we have long suspected: everyone is to blame."
* The White House calls out Fox News directly. Not sure how I feel about that.
* Dana Milbank on a lack of White House resolve. (Bonus: why Helen Thomas rocks.)
* The 2009 Ig Nobel prizes are announced.
* Want to be a patriotic American? Drink cider.
* Three months after cancellation, Primeval gets 13 new episodes.
* CatAndGirl.com on euphemisms.
