I miss my tonsils. I had them removed when I was 17 because they were infected and I’ll admit that having infected tonsils sucked pretty badly and I wanted them removed at the time, but before they were taken out I never had sinus problems. To tell you the truth, I can’t even remember being aware of what sinuses were, aside from those things they liked to light up on commercials for cold medicine like having a cold gave you glowing sinuses and that other people complained about a lot. Now? Oh, I know I have sinuses, they’re where my colds start and (for a while) became infected once a year in the fall like clockwork. Thanks to my previous sinus-ignorant existence, it took me about a week to figure out what my first sinus infection was to the bitter amusement of many. Sunday morning I woke up with a cold firmly lodged in my sinuses and I’d make a clumsy transition to how it made me think about something relevant to television except that it didn’t, I’m just feeling very slow, dumb, and stuffy right now so that’s what I talked about. Here’s your Tuesday night TV:

7:30pm: “Sextuplets Take NY” on TLC. First season finale.
8:00pm: “30 for 30” on ESPN
“The Biggest Loser” on NBC
“Glee” on Fox. This episode has something to do with Jesus on a grilled cheese sandwich and “One of Us” although I’m not sure what thinking about God riding busses trying to get home has to do with visions on a grilled cheese sandwich and who looks at their grilled cheese sandwich long enough to see Jesus before eating it? Time is of the essence with grilled cheese, and hesitation leads to a sharp drop off in the level of meltiness of the cheese in question. I am skeptical of this episode, is what I’m trying to say.

“POV: The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers” on PBS. This sounds like a band started by a bunch of DOD employees who mostly play cover songs about fighting the man in semi-ironic fashion on the weekends at bars belonging to people too nice to say no to them.

“Caprica” on SyFy. There’s no note on this, but wasn’t it gone for a while? And now it’s back? Or did I just not notice that it had come back? I watched the first couple episodes and wasn’t really super drawn in so it’s one of those things I forget still exists regularly.
