New TV Seasons

Ah, September. The last month for most of us folks working in the academe here in the Philippines. Also the month of new season premieres for our favorite US television shows!

This weekend, I noticed utorrent being sluggish. Well, we can't have that now, can't we? Especially not when Prison Break season 4's already four episodes in, with the fifth airing tonight! Fortunately, a reconfiguration of my settings was enough; utorrent's chugging along perfectly now, using much of my download speed (which I won't mention out of embarassment).

So far, I've only watched House, M.D. Season 5 premiere (spoiler: Nooo, Wilson, don't gooo!), although I've already finished downloading the first two eps of Prison Break season 4 (I promised my sis we'll watch it together when she comes home for the weekend... Hey, sis, if you read this, COME. HOME. NOW. I don't want to be too far behind. Though I may be amenable to a marathon). Both my PC and the cable modem are still working on completing the Supernatural s4 premiere as well as Prison Break s4's episode 4 (I hope they finish soon!). Oh, and I also decided to pick up J.J. Abrams' new X-Files-ey TV series, Fringe.

Two more TV shows are returning this coming week as well: Heroes (I sure hope they don't botch it like they did last season) and Chuck (go, geeks!).

In other news, I'm still buried under a ton of papers to grade.
