When I compare it with the death of a really minor character on VM this week, then I have to say that Abel and his daughter left a bigger impact in me and in more importantly in Veronica and we knew since Season 1 that he was a goner. Veronica’s second season never let me down so far, I know the bus crash and Felix murder aren’t everybody’s cup of tea, but I like both mysteries and the writing on every minor character is just so tight. I squeed when I saw Cliff, I smirk every time when I see Lamb, I miss Wallace and this is fantastic writing in my book. They are present, when they are needed, like Aaron this week, sure it’s not logical, but we all know Lamb is a jerk since the pilot, him mindfucking Logan with transporting Aaron into the country jail is totally in character. Keith visiting Aaron in the high security jail was also spot on and I love the way the small characters connect on VM or don’t. (For example when Wallace said in 1x21 that Logan used his paper and he don’t even know the guy.)
And for all the timeline issues, cheesy effects and sudden dawns of doom on Supernatural, the character development is just perfect between the brothers. You get both sides of their childhood story, different perspectives, which you can understand on both accounts and interesting and deep insights into their family dynamic and hell, it's just so much fun to watch. Plus I really believe that the writers know where both brothers are coming from, what their reasons for this journey are and I also love the fact, how they handle the investigations, whoever is up for the game or connects better with the victim is asking the questions. For example in 1x05 Bloody Mary while rewatching I realized that Sam is not saying a word, when they enter the morgue, because he is not up for it after his nightmare, only when Dean gets a No, he takes over with the money.
Medium and House are solid in their second seasons, both deliver interesting storylines and keep the characters real, while doing it. Greys Anatomy is cheese, but the good kind and a bit of guilty pleasure for me. Kitchen Confidential beats HImyM in the quirky humor and snark department, but with the early cancellation I stick with Aly for the time being. And I just watch Bones for DB, because I don’t care about the rest of the characters or the fact, that Bones won’t get any pop culture reference. Maybe I will warm up to them, but I’m not sure.
Oh, and I absolutely love both wallpaper styles, they fit their represented shows perfectly here and I'm out of words now... But I wanted to comment here for ages and never had the time to do it properly!
