One word review of ‘The Book of Daniel’ –
Further clarification – I would not have watched this if there hadn’t been such a fuss made over it. I knew from the previews that it was going to be a soap directed at the ‘Desperate Housewives’ audience. The only good thing about it was eye-candy Aidan Quinn who I’ve liked since ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’. The show’s characters are unlikeable and they spend all their time behaving very badly. If everyone had ignored this show it would have gone away very quickly and quietly.
My nerdy confession – I have never watched a single episode of ‘American Idol’, ‘Survivor’ or any other reality show. I don’t get to watch anything that isn’t totally child focused before at least 9 pm. When I do get the house cleaned up, everything set out for morning and finally settle in bed to wind down, I look for something funny or completely escapist. If I was still working I would have no popular television to chat about at the water cooler except for ‘LOST’. I can discuss the merits of Joe versus Steve and which celebrities lend their voices to ‘Oswald’ or ‘Higglytown Heroes’ though.
