I love the the new fall TV season is finally here, it may be the only thing about fall that I love. But even with the DVR there just aren't enough hours in the day to watch all the shows I'd like to. So many conflicts and some nights there's just nothing to watch.
Monday night had me watching The Event and Hawaii Five O and taping Chase at another time as Whynot was watching football and baseball and the channel surfing makes for a confused DVR.
The Event could be what fills my LOST gap. Sort of a LOST Flash Forward combination. Lots of jumping, so I really have to pay attention. And Blair Underwood, well I've been a fan since LA Law! It leaves me wanting more and so I may be sucked in for another six years.
Tuesday night was NCIS, I wasn't a serious watcher in the past, but I've heard a lot of good things about it so I thought I'd check it out. Wow Mark Harmon is old. I know, so am I am, but still, he's old! I think I might add NCIS Los Angeles next week if I can fit it in. I watched Parenthood, what's not to love about this show? Almost makes my crazy life on The Avenue seem a little normal. Didn't watch Detroit 1-8-7, heard it was good, feeling like I missed something. I'll have to try to squeeze it in somehow. Have to make room for The Good Wife. Glad I'm not in Julianna Marguilles' shoes, that's a tough choice to make, Mr. Big who is sort of an arrogant jerk trying to mend his ways or a relationship with the boss. Hmm.
Wednesday's shows were all on the DVR. Two hour back to back Law and Order SVU, which I somehow managed to watch in the wrong order. DOH. Next week (I think) is the premiere of Law and Order Los Angeles. I also taped The Defenders. Thumbs down! It had potential, it was set in Vegas, I love anything Vegas. This show, not so much. Jim Belushi is not his brother. And he's old. And IMO very crass and unrefined. He's a funny guy, serious drama is not his thing. Sorry I missed Undercovers, it looked cute.
Thursday, ah the long awaited Thursday! Grey's and Private Practice. Love love love. But this week, a little disappointing. Not enough detail to bring us up to speed from last season. Is Maya fine now? And two weddings that almost weren't, too predictable. I taped CSI to watch later this weekend with Whynot, so hush, no spoilers.
Friday is a slow night for my must see TV, just CSI NY and I'm a little upset that CSI Miami has been moved to Sunday. Football will mess up the start time and the DVR won't pick up the whole episode. I should probable learn to Hulu and I wouldn't have that problem.
I don't have a water cooler at work, heck I don't even have coworkers, but I'm wondering what this season's much talked/twittered about show will be. What's on your viewing card this season?
