One word review of ‘The Book of Daniel’ –
“Boring.”

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.

  1. I didn’t get to catch it but a friend of mine said that it was funny. Like you I don’t get to watch much tv because the kids take it over. We know all the cool lingo from higglytown heroes or blues clues even dora the explorer but a grown up show? Never! lol…

  2. You should be watching Battlestar Galactica. Believe it or not, it’s the best thing on TV.

    Not that I watch everything else, but it’s good.

  3. I don’t watch reality shows either. I find them boring. By the time I’m back home and done with housework, I’m pooped and I want to see something funny. We watch a lot of Seinfeld reruns right now.

    The kids used to take over the TV, then we trained them to watch the shows we liked. I don’t know how Cartoon Network does it, but they manage to come up with worse stuff every year. When my kids were little, some of the shows were actually decent. Today, I don’t know what the creators of these shows are on, but I could use some of that stuff.
