Ah…it’s autumn. Well, not officially, but it’s been feeling like it, which for central Virginia is unusual. Some year’s we have picnicking weather in January. I’m from Western NY, so that was shocking when I first moved down here. Anyway, besides back to school (Yeah for moms everywhere!) September means the fall season on TV. Yes, I love the summer shows, like Psych, Monk, and Royal Pains, but their seasons tend to be way too short. True Blood just wrapped up (guess I need to cancel HBO), and the BBCA shows Being Human and Torchwood were way too short.
What have you been watching this summer?
Now I’m anticipating the shows I’ve missed since spring: Mentalist, Castle, Supernatural, and Dollhouse (I’m shocked this got picked up for another season). My crit partner says I watch too much TV. I don’t know what he’s talking about. **blinking innocently** Hmm, Smallville, Gossip Girl, Medium…
What shows have you been waiting to return? Any of your fave shows canceled? I really like The Unusuals, which came on mid-season and didn’t even have a chance to shine.
Then there’s the new shows. Ever since I was a kid (before DVDs and cable) this was a very exciting time. I always read the TV Guide’s Fall Preview issue. Now they break it up over two issue (new and returning)…I’m sure you’re thrilled=2 0to know that, aren’t you?
First of all, what’s with the plethora of hospital shows? Yeah, yeah, ER ended, but honestly which is which? Flashforward sounds interesting, but possible depressing—something about everyone bouncing to the future then back to the present. When the characters from the new NCIS: LA were introduced at the end of the last NCIS season, I wasn’t too impressed, but I’ll give them a try. I’m bored by the new Melrose Place. Then there’s the new version of V. I have a distinct memory of someone giving birth to a reptile…when was it…in the 80s?
So the shows I’ve been anticipating the most are Eastwick—gotta love witches and magic—and Vampire Diaries—gotta love vampires. Btw, someone was saying that Vampire Diaries is a total rip-off of Twilight, but if you look it up Vampire Diaries came out in 1999, so I’m pretty sure if anyone is the copy it’s Twilight copying VD.
So if you’re as TV obsessed as I am, let me know what you’re looking forward to this fall season. I’d love to hear from you!
