Finally, my bloodlust will be quenched

The season premiere of "The Shield" is tonight. Sunday is the return of "24." Vic Mackey. Jack Bauer. It's a wonderful time to be a TV viewer with a thing for law enforcement types who don't play by the rules (but get results, dammit!).

Wait. That show isn't "The Commish"?

I loved "The Commish" until they killed off Stan--the lovable cop next door. That would be the show's "jumping the shark" moment.

I then began hating "The Commish" when I saw reruns of it appearing on Lifetime: Television for Idiots. Apparently, "The Commish" was a chick show and I just didn't know it.

I cannot wait for 24 to be on. Just think 4 hours on Sunday and Monday. What a great show. Hopefully it is more like season 4 and less like season 3. :)

Yeah, "The Shield" is a lot like "The Commish," only there's less hair and more cussing.

Obligatory Jim Gaffigan quote: "My favorite channel is the Lifetime channel because Lifetime is 'Television for women. Lifetime, television for women.' Yet for some reason, there's always a woman getting beaten on that network. 'Meredith Baxter gets beaten by a rod, in the Lifetime Original, 'Rod.'"

gmadrid - I'm hoping for quality, too (Kim's a cutie, but a total idiot - a cougar?). Honestly, I'm just glad to have it back. It could suck eggs and I'd still watch.

So glad Jack's daughter has returned.
