Watched yesterday

Criminal Minds: Derailed - 4/5

Flashpoint: Eagle Two - this is a hidden gem of a show on ITV3, a *Canadian* drama about a police armed response unit. Very much a procedural in sensibilities where the regular characters take second place to each week's story, but you can still engage with those regulars (as with, for example, CSI LV) and the stories are strong enough to carry the show each week - 4/5

Boston Legal: Rose - 3/5

Free Agents: Episode 1.6 - 4/5

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Some Must Watch, While Some Must Sleep - dismal episode, clearly one of those that producers of sci-fi shows have to knock together for pennies so that they can spend money on big set-piece episodes. Furthermore, it didn't advance the story in the slightest and if you haven't seen it can be skipped if you're short of time. That said, a couple of positives in there. It looks like the writers are again starting to play around with the idea that Jon might be attracted to Cameron. They did it a bit clunkily, but it will be interesting to see how that unfolds. Also, nice to see a guest spot for Julie Ann Emery, even if she did deserve something better than this - 2/5
