So, I also watched the new show Valentine this week, and I kinda like it. It's got some issues with it, and it seems a bit derivative of the critical fave Cupid, which I've never seen, so I can't say either way.

I'll admit, I mainly tuned in for some of the cast, but it was...decently written. Not great, but it had a decent plot and setup, and all the characters had a unique voice, and were developed enough to be a little more than the usual CW pretty person stereotype. Not much more, but they were at least interesting, in their own ways.

I wish Phoebe was a little less spacy, and my only other major problem was the constant complaints that they're out of touch with the modern world...but then go and use phrases like "I think I just threw up in my mouth a little" as well as other modernisms. Kinda ruins your plot when most of the characters act like everyone else in the now. ;)

Also, I'm not exactly pleased with the complaints about technology being bad and pulling people apart, and making us less connected.

I'm sorry, but that argument may have some weight, but on balance, I find it to be bullshit. Why? Because of this, right here. This journal, and IRC, and everything else I do online. How many people have I met online that I *never* would have met without a computer? According to my friendlist, that's about 100 people, and then some. My best friend I met online. And I've met most of you in person. I may well be the exception to the rule, but still, that argument just rings hollow for me.
