Square Eyes...

The damn Fall TV schedule is going to be the end of me.

For the first time in a long time I am actually enjoying some of the new programs out there... and that, combined with the programs I normally watch makes for a very busy Carmen.

Thank god for time shifting cable.

Here is run-down on the new shows I am watching this year - I don't know if they will all stick around, but for now, they have a spot in the PVR.

Glee (Fox) - I really liked the pilot. Since then I have been lacking enthusiasm over the episodes. It is slowly becoming a giant bad karaoke revival for me...

Vampire Diaries (The CW) - yeah, the writing is baaad, and the show is basically hacking Twilight, but there are hot vampires. Sometimes you just need to watch a show for the eye candy. And support Canadian actresses. Even if she does say "Dear Diary" far too often.
Accidentally on Purpose (CBS) - it has Dharma in it. So it will keep my attention for awhile. The guys could be cuter though. Finally - something other that stupid effing football on a Monday night.

NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS) - Chris O'Donnell. Enough said.

Mercy (NBC) - I wasn't too sure about this one - I kind of thought it would just be a ER knock-off. But throw in a bit of an illicit love affair and you have me watching.

Cougar Town (ABC) - Courtenay Cox Arquette as a cougar... which means that we are bound to see lots of hot guys. I will put up with Courtenay for that. I think. Maybe. Far awhile anyways.

We won't even go into all the other shows I watch... but I must tell you, the hope of Grissom coming back to CSI makes me happy. Cause Laurence Fishburne kind of sucks rat balls.

  1. Thing is, I think Vampire Diaries are supposed to be based on some books that were pre-Twilight. I haven't read the books, or seen the show, but from the commercials I've seen, I imagine Stephenie Meyer hacked a little bit of Vampire Diaries and a little bit of Sookie Stackhouse.

    They're killing me with the fall TV scheduling. Fox moved Fringe to Thursdays, against Grey's and The Office. I can't watch them all at once! Or record them even!

  2. It may only be because of Chris Noth but I enjoyed The Good Wife last week.

  3. Ah yes, I was also going to point out that Vampire Diaries pre-date Twilight. I tried Vampire Diaries, but couldn't get past the writing. Glee is kinda pissing me off at times, but I will still love it because it is so amazingly gay and whatnot. Caught amazing race this week (yay!) and we're back into Numb3rs, as well.
