Most of us probably feel summer rerun season less than we used to, what with the amount of original cable programming, So You Think You Can Dance, the wide variety of Internet porn available nowadays, etc. But the regular season makes its absence most deeply felt on Thursday, normally the night of the highest average television use, on which networks have long scheduled “appointment” shows like The Office, Grey’s Anatomy, CSI and so on. Now that your appointments are broken—maybe for longer than you expect—how are you filling your Thursday? Mrs. Tuned In and I have begun an ambitious project of re-watching each episode of Freaks and Geeks from the deluxe DVD set, with the commentaries on. (Lord, can Judd Apatow go on!) What’s made your personal Must-See block?
