I should never be allowed to make statements of any kind at all. They just doom me to more crap in the end. Case in point: last night, not two hours after replying to Luna about not hearing any more noise from the rats, I get out of my shower to suddenly realize the mangy bastards are running around inside the walls. Scared the bejeezus out of me.

I think they were having a party. And from the sounds, I'd say they had set up a Slip 'N Slide. I kid you not. I kept hearing skitter skitter skitter kwoooom. What the hell is that supposed to mean? Could they be having massive rat reunions with inflatable jumpers? Playing war games with paint guns? Or maybe they're not playing around, maybe they're actually building nuclear bombs and stuff. Maybe they're rushing around trying to get all their laboratories organized so they can finally go through with their big plan to take over the world. Maybe I've always been a little too fond of Mrs. Frisby and The Rats of NIMH. Hmm.

Whatever. I don't have time to worry about them too much at the moment, because there were a few new TV shows on tonight, and I of course followed them like they were bitches in heat. So, here's a quick overview...

Ugly Betty
~ This turned out to be pretty good. America Ferera is the perfect choice for this, a much more logical fish out of water than Ann Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada.

~ Her cute womanizing cad of a boss is probably too cute to convincingly be a womanizing cad. Oddly enough, I found him the most out of place in the casting. Maybe they were looking towards future episode when they will likely fall in love, because then I could see him being just right. Also, I keep trying to figure out where I've seen him before. I have this vague memory of him being the geeky outsider in some high school setting. Just another reason why I'm having trouble with him here.

~ Must get rid of Betty's ugly "B" necklace. Not only is it hideous, but it will most likely have some lame story attached to it where it belonged to her mother and it was given to Betty before/during/after her death. Nobody needs to hear it 'cause we've heard it all before.

~ Must give us more of the fashonista environment. Maybe this show will be able to fill those fancy shoes since The Devil Wears Prada apparently couldn't. That's where they have the most potential to shine. Catty comments and backstabbing bitches. Bring it on.

~ Must have less of the family focus. That's guaranteed to put me off the show for good, and, sadly, I doubt it will get toned down to a level I'll be comfortable with. Touching family moments are my kryptonite, and too much sap will sap my will to watch. Also, it seems likely that my parents will be watching it, and I don't want to get sucked into disparaging comparisons with Betty. Like I really need more confirmation of how much I suck at life.

~ Must have more Salma Hayak. Ok, not really, that would get old real fast. But her two scenes lasted less than a minute, and I was dying for more.

Final Analysis: Yeah, I don't know about this one. I really did enjoy it, but the more I think about it, the less I want to go back to it. I know it will be funny, but I also know it will be painfully predictable in it's plot lines.


~ Dean! Sam! John! WHY?!?!

~ I am unable to form any coherent response. Just understand that it was awesome and I am officially this show's acolyte.

Grey's Anatomy
~ I didn't watch it since it coincided with Supernatural. I'll tape it when it repeats tomorrow and watch it later.
