What I'm Watching: Samantha Who?

Samantha Who: Season 1, Episode 7 “The Hockey Date” (B-)

I have said it before, and I will say it again. Sam lost her memory, not her common sense. The difference needs to be more neatly outlined. There is enough to work with here to simply continue with the great characters which have been developed thus far, and leave Sam’s neurosis about her amnesia behind for a bit. She can still recall an important memory each episode, but limit her lack of memory to the realization that has been banned from the hockey arena. I cannot quite tell why Eddie Cibrian of all people is popping up on ABC shows (he guest-starred in “Dirty Sexy Money” a few weeks back). He brings nothing too interesting to the table, and pales in comparison to all of the other characters, even the eternally confused Todd.
