The perils of too much imagination

I just watched the Criminal Minds episode with Wil Wheaton* in it. It freaked me out SO MUCH. I don't think I've seen another show that has tweaked so many of my semi-rational fears in about half a decade. I can usually dismiss crime shows pretty well, seeing through the manipulations and all, but this time I was so tense that I actually contracted into myself while watching. *shudders*

Of course this means that I'll be tivoing the series from now on. That's right, I put the verb form of TiVo in writing.


*Wil Wheaton did a fine job of being scary, but they didn't use him enough.

Grumble. I've been waiting to see this one since Wil Wheaton announced he had a guest spot, and our freaking DVR skipped it. Not a happy Snooopy today...

Overall though, Criminal Minds appears to be a very well-written show.

Oh, no! Recording malfunctions suck. I hope it comes on again soon so you can snag it.

Never seen the show, but I keep seeing smart people talking about it, which makes me wanna...test the waters.

Right! I've been hearing about it for quite a while, so I wanted to see the WW episode. There are explanations in the dialogue that I think many writers will not need--I would see the implications of new info, and then the characters would explain it, and I would sigh--but the show kept my attention anyway.

I had never watched it before, but watched the episode last night specifically for Wil Wheaton. And, yikes. He creeped the fuck out of me, in a good way. Yes, indeedy, he was sufficiently creepy. Brrrrr.
