Summer is drawing to a close and with it, much of this cycle’s prime time TV season. I thought I would do a little postmortem of my likes and dislikes! Mind you, I don’t watch Burn Notice, Rescue Me, Psych, or Monk, so those shows won’t be reflected. But I threw in some daytime just to keep it interesting.

Guilty pleasure: Merlin.

Other categories to come as I think of them.
This also does not change the fact that I will be doing a silly award round-up before the Daytime Emmys like I did in the work blog last year.
