I finally got around to catching up on some of the new fall TV shows. I thought I might take a moment to share some of my thoughts.
Gossip Girl – I was really, really, really looking forward to Gossip Girl’s return. The couple of episodes haven’t really wowed me me much though. Maybe things will heat back up again once everyone returns to school. Here’s hoping anyway.
Privilege – I’m liking this so far. I think it’s a cute premise and slightly more believable than Gossip Girl. Though really, who in the world gets to drink alcohol at such a young age? Is that even possible? It took a while to realize who the main character and tutor is – if she were still a blonde I probably would have figured it out sooner.
Grey’s Anaotmy – What a lame return. That episode just dragged on and on. It’s a shame too, as I was really looking forward to the return. I heard there’s going to be some good character development coming up, so I hate the season improves.
Heroes – All I can say is WOW! Did you see that season premier? Even if they’d stopped after the first hour, it would still have been totally on the edge of your seat excitement. I can’t wait to see where it’s all going to go. Who is a hero and who is a villian? And what about people who previously didn’t have powers getting them? And Linderman, what happened to him again? Did Nicki kill him? What about Claire, is she different now that Sylar got a hold of her?
Fringe – I’m quite liking this show. I should admit though, I’m was a huge Alias fan. And while I can see the comparisions, I keep waiting for it to be as good as Alias was when it was great. I don’t mean that Fringe isn’t good, just that it’s not Alias, so I need to stop watching it looking for signs of Alias. I’m loving Joshua Jackson, but that lead gal, I’m not quite so fond of. She doesn’t seem to have that zing that JJ Abrams other lead women seem to have. I’ll keep watching though, as I do believe I’m hooked and need to learn more about The Pattern.
The Mentalist – I just watched this about an hour ago. I’m not quite sure if I like it. It was okay, but if I’m watching someone pretend to be a psychic while being a detective…well, I’ll just watch Psych (and I do). That Simon Baker though, he is a cutie with an awesome smile. So I have a feeling I might just be watching to keep an eye on him.
Lipstick Jungle – I was actually surprised to see it return. I don’t think it’s bad, but it’s not exactly much see TV either. I find it interesting that they killed off whats-her-name’s husband. That was one thing in the old season that make her character a little less believeable or relatable for me. Well at least now she’ll get to play with Kirby out in pubic.
I’m looking forward to the rest of the shows coming back over the next couple of weeks. I’m definitely ready for the ABC Wednesday night line up, especially Dirty, Sexy, Money. When does Lost return?
So what have you been watching these past two weeks and what are you still looking forward to?
