Now that the new TV season is in full swing, I may have to spill some TV thoughts a bit here and there. Ah, TV. The ever present time wasting pleasure.
Here's what I'm watching so far this season:
Survivor: we are major loyal fans. It's a must to see what the next crazy crowd is going to do. This season, there's an awful Russel that is out to cause much havoc. There's a nice Russel too, and a very cool, but emotional Jaison. One tribe is losing every challenge, and so we aren't learning much about the other tribe because they get less TV time.
Amazing Race: loyal fans to this one too. The teams first went to Japan, then quickly to Vietnam were they are doing some pretty hard roadblocks and detours. I don't have a favorite team yet, but am enjoying the Globetrotter dudes quite a bit.
Heroes: not sure what to think about this one so far this season. Sylar continues to creep us out sufficiently well.... my favorite bad guy of all time. There's new intriguing thing with Peter and a deaf lady that can see sound as color. That's pretty cool. But where is Mohinder? Can someone remind me, did something happen to him at the end of last season? I'm really missing him. And did you know it comes on an hour early than past seasons? Yeah, I learned that last week when I missed the first half hour.
Dancing With The Stars: Never been much of a fan of this one, but this season, I've been finding myself checking in now and then just to see what's happening with my buddy Donny. :)
Glee: still not sure what to think about this one! There sure is a lot of hype surrounding it, so I had to check it out and I'm trying to base my watching decision on what I really think and not the hype, know what I mean? Anyway, it's fun. I love the musical numbers (though it sure looks like obvious lip syncing a lot to me) and the quirky characters, but it is quite irreverent, if that's the right word, and makes me squirm often. It goes without saying that I loved the Josh Groban appearance, though I wish they would have had him sing, like Kristen Chenowith got to do! Anyway, he's so cool to be able to make such fun of himself like he did.
Vampire Diaries: this one makes me jump a lot! Lots of out-of-the-blue creepy moments. There's an interesting contrast between the good and the bad vampires which makes me want to keep watching just to see what happens. I'd really like to read the book first though, and see how the book goes before I see how the show goes. That Damon dude is definitely competing for best bad guy ever, right along with Sylar.
FlashForward: I love the premise of this new show and the drama and the twilight zone feeling. I'm pretty excited about it and look forward to finding out what all the characters learn concerning this strange event that happened to them all.
Anyone know what happened to Friday Night Lights? Did it really get cancelled, or is it just coming on later in the season? I'm so confused. Oh, and Chuck? I'm really missing Chuck too.
The Gilmore Girl marathon continues. We just finished up the 6th season, so we have one season left. I hear it's not nearly as good. I hated how the 6th season ended, so of course we'll have to watch it just to see what they do with all our characters. I'm a little nervous. I so want a happily ever after for them all! (Loved how Jess/Peter/Milo showed up again in this season and told Rory off and set her straight again. He's a great character that Jess.)
A show I'm dying to watch now after here tons of wonderful things about it is the BBC's Robin Hood series. I need to find the past seasons of that one and catch up!
Whew. So, are you watching any of these? What do you think of them so far?
