So, the first week of the TV season is done and I’ve got winners and some on the chopping block.
Glee. Bor.Ing. I loved loved loved the new girl whose mom is the cafeteria lady, but she’s not on much and everything else is just boring and self-indulgent. When Beauty and the Beast premiers, I think I’ll drop this one.
Grey’s Anatomy. Recycled storylines and too much angst. We’ve had the surgeon with the hand trauma already and the people recovering from yet ANOTHER tragedy. Also, no more Lexi and Mark, who I loved.
Ben and Kate. EW said this was one of the best new shows, about a brother and sister living together and raising her daughter, but I thought it was meh and the brother was just…loud.
Castle. Nice job of carrying both the big mystery forward and the big romance Funny seeing Beckett acting romantic though.
Last Resort. This story about a submarine crew who refuses a firing order and is chased down for it played like a movie. No idea how they’ll make it a series, but….I’ll be watching.
Modern Family. Laughed until I cried at the stuffed animals on the car, cried at the end.
Fringe. I admit, not my favorite series, but the dh loves it. I was sucked into the season premier set in the future, where Peter and Olivia’s daughter is grown. I loved their wonder as they watched their adult daughter take up the mantle.
The New Normal. This show makes me cry more than laugh, but I love love love it.
Haven. Now THAT is a love triangle. That’s all I’m saying.
Vegas. I’m not a police procedural fan, but I was intrigued by the setting, Las Vegas in the 50s-60s (not sure.) Jason O’Mara is in it, and I like the byplay between Dennis Quaid and Carrie Ann Moss. It’s interesting to see the procedures they use, things that had become cliche, but we don’t see anymore because of technological advances.
The Middle. We used to LOVE this show, but the writing felt flat during the season premiere.
Big Bang Theory. I used to love that one, too, and it’s still good, but once Vampire Diaries comes back….
Hawaii 5-0. I liked the season premiere for the most part. I liked the mom, liked that McGarrett called Katherine to guard his mother (though maybe I didn’t. Is she trained for hand-to-hand combat? I mean, she kicked some ass, but…also, why put the woman he loves in such obvious danger?) I did NOT like the beginning for obvious emotional reasons, wondered why they put so many windows in a safe house and why all the bad guys dressed the same.
So what have you watched and loved? Watched and decided to dump?
