Cable vs. Boredom

Since I do have a partial life I record shows on TiVo all day long and watch them late nights when I'm home. All these shows have been on cable but are they worth the space on my Tivo.
Monk, The 4400 and The Dead Zone are all coming in with a whimper.

When these shows first started they were exciting and different but quickly they reduse to resolve anything and just drag out. Monk has all but forgotten his dead wife. They should have a good three or four episode arc solving his wifes murder, then have him deal with it for next season.

Oh well I must keep watching. For now cable is winning.

Monk: Mr. Monk and the Garbage Strike
Funnier then normal Monk has to deal with a garbage strike in his area. The union boss gets murder and Monk is at a lost to who killed the guy. The smell of the rotting city has thrown off Monks crime solving skills. Eventually the captain takes Monk to a clean room and he solves the case.

Psych: Spellingg Bee
Shawn and Gus try to solve a murder at a spelling bee and I guess they do because I drifted away from the TV and didn't really pay attention that closely. This maybe the last time I see this show.

The 4400: The Home Front
Alana is taken in as a member of the Nova group. So her hubby works out a trade and gets her free but on the run with that dead guy from ER.

The Dead Zone: The Inside Man
Nazis, Jesus Christ and a museum robbery are all things Johnny must piece together to solve a museum robbery. Nice episode about faith.

Today's episode reminded me that he is a psychic, why not go to museum and get paid to verify art or bones? Why not look into the past and see Jesus Christ and Moses, go to the museum and touch dinosaurs bones and mammoths to see how the really look and how they lived? Imagine the possibilities. Yes I know Johnny is above that petty stuff but come on.

TV is educational. If you can't learn something everyday your box is broken.
