I have 21 minutes until the official “premiere week” officially kicks off. My computer is relatively stable at the moment so here it goes! I am grateful that there are not many shows that appeal to me this season since I have this 10 hour rule. Maybe as I have gotten older, my tastes have gotten more refined? Hmm… I do still watch ever episode of Big Brother. Well, whatever the reason, it bodes well for my plan. I read all of the TV Squad reviews and poured over Entertainment Weekly, and used my new show prediction radar and the show I am MOST excited about is….
The Event – Mysteries, political intrigue and flashing forward and backward to tell the story. Sounds perfect. I miss Flash Forward so I am hoping this is something similar..but better!
Runners up include:
Lone Star – I was feeling obliged to watch this because it got great reviews, but I saw a preview on TiVo and I might actually like it…
The Whole Truth – I love Maura Tierney and Rob Morrow. I hope I like this..but the jury is out (that was a pun about this legal drama. Get it?:)
No Ordinary Family – Family develops super powers when their plane crashes on vacation. Seems like a cool premise..OK, I am kind of excited about this one
Running Wilde – I was a huge Arrested Development fan and loved Felicity. If this is anything like Arrested Development, I will love it. Reviews are not great but they supposedly did some rework.
Undercovers – I might be over this spy couple stuff but it is JJ Abrams..so I have to give it a try.
So those are my top picks for shows that might added to the rotation. I am giving myself a little slack this week to check out new shows AND catch my old returning favs (like Fringe!!!!!!!!!) but I do find I have less patience with hours and hours of television so I might get bored and actually want to go out and see real human beings before I get through my list. I am a recovering TVaholic after all! We will see what happens….
