Time I don't have to waste

Ah, frick. I swore that I would never be addicted to another television show (well, besides Scrubs, Sportscenter, The Daily Show, and South Park) but I lied.

I sat down with my computer to do some schoolwork, and thought it would be a good idea to turn the tv on a veg a little while typing. I am now pretty positive that was a mistake. Because I happened to catch the premier of the new Fox show Fringe, and I'm hooked. There wasn't anything funny about it, no animation, no Jon Stewart, and no brutal sports hits. There was an abundance of cheesy spooky music, cut away shots, and sci-fi gore. There were a lot of not-so-well delivered lines by not-so-popular-anymore actor Joshua Jackson, and extremely well delivered lines by actor John Noble (of LotR Denethor fame). People melted, hands got smashed, cows walked through Harvard, and the unthinkable happened:

I'm hooked.

Double frick.

Also of interest is the show following Fringe, one that I am having trouble turning off. It's called Hole in the Wall, and the object of the game show is to fit people through a giant moving wall with a hole in it. Classy.

I missed Fringe, I was watching 90210 instead. I also do not need another distraction from studying.

Oh my god. I LOVE Fringe. I had to take an online math test and I could NOT tear myself away. I almost missed my deadline.

You and I are like, geek siblings or something.
