The new tv season is nearly upon us and so I thought
it might be fun to take a look at
the shows that have made my MUST SEE TV list:
Sunday has traditionally been one of the weakest
nights of the week and the new
season looks to be more of the same. The only show that
I plan to watch is West
Wing [NBC]. Although last season was one
of the best for West Wing, the new night
could spell trouble. Since the Bartlett's are on
the way out, fans may decide that they should
be as well. I hope not.
Monday looks to have just the right mix of shows.
At 8PM, I'll check out Surface
[NBC]. This show has a lot of potential - an "adventure-drama"
about what happens when
sea creatures [monsters?] are discovered all across
the world's oceans. At 9PM, I'll switch over to FOX
and check out Prison
Break and at 10, it'll be back to NBC
highly under-rated Medium.
Tuesday belongs to 24
Shield, but since they won't start up for a while
to give WB's Supernatural
at 9PM a shot. Given the WB's track record
my MUST SEE TV list, this could be bad, especially
since my wife will want to watch
The Amazing Race on CBS.
Wednesday is the greatly anticipated return of Lost
at 9PM on ABC. I'll also probably
on NBC at the same time. At 10, I'll keep
it on ABC and check out Invasion.
Seems that creepy is back in with Invasion,
Supernatural and Surface all premiering this
season. I wonder how many will last for two.
Thursday was for years THE night
for tv. Not anymore. Survivor
on CBS at 8PM will continue to be a family
event. At 9PM, I'll switch over to ABC
and give the
a shot. I remember watching Darrin McGavin in
the original Night Stalker movie back
in 1972. It was a fun movie... but I didn't much
care for the tv series that followed.
Maybe this one will be better.
Friday is the second worst night of the week
for tv [thank goodness for dvds]. I will
at 8PM on CBS a try since it has the same
Saturdays is the pits. I always hope that the
SciFi Channel will have a halfway decent
flick but that's rarely the case... still I continue to
Before I bring this post to a close, I want to mention
the shows that I've enjoyed this summer: Hell's
Kitchen hooked me and I wasn't sure I'd care about
it at all; So
Think You Can Dance is as much fun as American
Knows Best shows a side of The Hulkster
that makes you wish he was your neighbor; Celebrity
had me watching celebrities that I didn't even watch
when they were famous [well,
except for Gary Busey!]; Wanted
has characters quirky enough to elevate it from the
run of the mill cop show; The
Ultimate Fighter is like The Contender on
my favorite summer show has turned out to be Over
Well, that's what I'm looking forward to from the new season.
Have I missed anything?
