Have used my week of sick leave to get caught up on some shows:

White Collar Season 3 - Dug the second half more than the first though I wasn't so keen on the cliffhanger. It's not that it was bad in itself, just that I'm so sick of the person who is higher in the hierarchy is evol and tries to mess everything up schemes Sorry, but I more or less prefer the fluff here.

The Secret Circle Eh, a storyline seems to be emerging from somewhere and the last ep had an - I think unintentionally - funny twist at the end but the main character is a textbook Sue. And the weakest actor out of all the cast. Concentrate more on the circle itself, if you ask me. Build on the Faye/Diana/Melissa friendship and even Jake and Adam - the epitome of wishy-washyness - are certainly better when they're not focused on Cassie.

Grimm Sure, it's still goofy and I'm never sure if I want to laugh or cry at the German "Wesen" names but the main lead has grown more into his role and it is at least a somewhat novel approach to the "Chosen One" story, i.e. he stays more or less just a cop and hasn't picked up any sacred duty mantle or something. And Monroe will never not be cute.

The River Yeah, that. Thankfully only one more ep to go. The mother is certainly a thouroughly unsympathetic character and yet in each new episode she finds a new low to sink to. I mean, acting all high and mighty to that camera woman that they didn't leave her with the I-am-legend-zombies? Like what, that woman is supposed to kiss your feet for not committing cold-blooded murder? Piece.of.work.

I have also started Person of Interest which is reasonably entertaining so far. I kinda like Reese calmly walking into these rooms full of armed, dangerous guys and then walking out on a bunch of totally beat up dudes. They do a nice job of establishing as a badass without too much overly fancy stuntwork or bullet time or whathaveyou. I also have to giggle over his tendency to topple bad guys over with their cars.

PoI is my safety place. Such a cool dynamics between 2 leads! And Reese is beyond awesome!

I was a bit reluctant to try it out because the premise didn't appeal to me much but the cases are okay and I like the action factor in it.

Reese is my absolute hero. I have never enjoyed anyone else bringing out the big guns and shooting up stuff as I enjoy it with him. He makes me giddy.

Right now I'm in an total-angst-overdose, action-craving phase so it's definitely welcome to see a character like that.

There is the angst, but I also love the show in regards to the Machine. At some point, you start to wonder how self-aware this machine really is, and if there's some kind of Skynet in the making...
