The TV MegaSite's Blog Post #77

Happy New Year! I know, it's a little late...

Our site is doing great, and I predict a bright future! Things are really moving along.

Since soap operas may be on their way out (they keep canceling them, sadly), we are doing what we can to not only keep the daytime section strong, but we're building up our primetime section as well.

Last week I made about 30 new pages for current or new shows...so far it's just the main pages, but those have info about upcoming episodes, where to watch the shows online, etc. so they are still somewhat useful. In fact, I worked so hard on those, that I injured my left arm! But I'm better now...
Anyway, you can see the list and the links to them on our shows page.

Now I am starting to put our new design on the pages. This will probably take a long time. I'm starting with our main section pages. Stay tuned! You should see them starting tomorrow with any luck.

Now that "24" has started again on FOX, Carrie is back hard at work writing the recaps for our episode guide, so check it out!

We get tons of news now every day from the networks about their shows. I put some of it up on our news page and Danielle puts all of it plus a bunch more on our Primetime Forum. We have tons of photos and video clips as well. Please read and post your comments or questions!

This is just a little bit of our new stuff. Of course we still have our What's New Page that lists everything that is put up every day (and it's a lot!).

It seems like just yesterday I was thinking, there's nothing new on TV. Not now! So much new stuff, it's hard for me to keep up. Last night, "Damages" premiered. It's always a great show. If you like mysteries, complex stores, great acting, check it out. Don't expect nice people, though :)

Friday the new science fiction show "Caprica" debuted on Syfy. I had already bought the DVD last year so I didn't watch the premiere, but I will definitely be watching from now on to see the rest of the shows. It looks very good so far. It is by some of the same people who did Battlestar Galactica. In case you don't know, it's a sort of prequel to BSG. You don't have to be a BSG fan or have watched it to understand Caprica, though. It takes place in the past, in a world somewhat like our own, with lots of virtual reality. It stars some great actors like Eric Stoltz and Esai Morales, plus some great new young faces.

Earlier this week were the premieres of 24, the new show Human Target, and new episodes of White Collar and Burn Notice. Whew! It's a lot to keep a TV fan busy. That's on top of all the other fall shows returning....

Honestly, I haven't had much time in the past year to watch the soaps. It's sad, but there's just so much good TV out there. I still enjoy watching soaps, but it's so hard when it is every day. Maybe soap ratings would do better if they made them once a week instead of daily? Just a thought.

Have a great week!
