As I mentioned last week, we’re doing away with the nightly comment diversions, if only because after 180 of them thus far, it’s become difficult to conjure up a nightly topic (we will continue with weekly comment diversions, in addition to the newly installed weekend hijack thread). Still, I like the idea that our readers often gather here in the evening to shoot the bacon and chew the shit, so to speak. And with the fall television season upon us, what better excuse to gather around the computer, drink the alcoholic beverage of your choice, and ignore your loved ones than television.
So, finally, here’s something to center Pajiba After Dark around: Television, of both the good and bad variety. Each weekday (and Sunday), we will run down the highlights on that particular night of television to not just serve as a reminder of what’s on, but to give you something to chat about. I would warn those on the West Coast, however, from entering the thread until the particular episodes have aired in your time zone, so as to avoid spoilers.
The nightly highlights should improve once the fall television is in full swing, but for now, here’s what you have to look forward to tonight (or not, as the case may be):
— The Season Finale of “10 Things I Hate About You,” on ABC Family.
— The Second Season Premier of “90210” on The CW.
— The premiere of “Melrose Place” on The CW.
— “Warehouse” on SyFy
— “Dragon’s Den” on BBC America (Is this show any good?)
— “Sons of Anarchy” second season premiere on FX.
We’ll leave you with a trailer for “Melrose Place” 2.0
