It's the week where every year I get caught up in homework, music lessons, Hebrew school and other kid-related things and forget what day it is, which ends up affecting my television-watching for the entire year. Last season, for instance, I missed the premiere of Lost, and by the time I remembered to watch it, I didn't really get what everyone else thought what was so great about it. On the other hand I saw the pilot of Veronica Mars and was hooked immediately. Go figure.
This year I already made a conscious choice not to watch Bones and just blew it when it came to watching Supernatural, which I had intended to try. But I know that Threshold premieres tonight, so I will give it a chance. I am weighing my disappointments with Enterprise and particularly Voyager (which also had a female lead) in regard to Brannon Braga against the fact that I like both Carla Gugino and Brent Spiner and the trailers look great, so I figure I should give it a chance.
Otherwise, I'm waiting for The West Wing to return and thinking I will give Smallville one more chance, as I have every year since it went on the air. I guess I must actually like it or something. But really HBO's ruined me for network television.

Trek Two Years Ago
These were some of the major news items from September 2003:
- 'Enterprise' 21st Century Episode Coming
Enterprise had plans to journey back to the present day, announced executive producer Rick Berman. "We've got a story in development now that will, in what I think is quite an intriguing way, bring some of our characters into the 21st Century, better known as our present," Berman said. "The story will also bring some rather dangerous Xindi here as well...this is an episode that will appear during the November sweeps and we're very excited about it."
- 'Major Revelations' Ahead On 'Enterprise'
Enterprise's other executive producer, Brannon Braga, promised that the Temporal Cold War had not been abandoned and said, "We have some major revelations, coming up later in the season about our future guy and the Xindi's future guy, because they have one, too...whether or not we will reveal their identities, we haven't gotten that far yet."
- Visitor: I Wanted To Kill Dukat
If Nana Visitor (Kira Nerys) had her way, it wouldn't have been Sisko taking on the Cardassian nemesis in the Deep Space Nine series finale, but Kira:
I definitely think that I should have been the one to kill Dukat...if I had any frustration about the end of the show, then that was it. Even if at the last moment I turned away from killing him, that psychology would have been interesting. And then Dukat pulls a weapon on me, so I'm backed into a corner of having to kill him — that would have been so great. Not black or white."
