TV - Fall 2008

so i didn't think there was going to be a lot to watch this year, what with NBC canceling excellent shows like Journeyman and putting in its place Knight Rider 2008 and My Own Worst Enemy. then i sat down and figured out what i want to watch and you know what? there's enough.

Mondays
7PM
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Fox; second season already in progress
WILL WATCH

2 weeks in and this show is already kicking ass like it did when it premiered last year. sleeper hit of the year last year (maybe because of the writer's strike) has now become one of my favorite shows.

Chuck
NBC; second season premieres September 29
WILL WATCH

funny show. first season ended abruptly and with no real wrap-up because of the writer's strike, so i'm interested to see where it goes from there.

8PM
Heroes
NBC; third season premieres September 22
60-minute clip show precedes episode;
show moves to 8:00 on September 29
WILL CHECK OUT

they really, REALLY lost me with how crappy season 2 turned out to be. if they don't hook me again in the first few episodes of season 3, i'm out.

9PM
Life
NBC; second season premieres September 29
Special preview; show moves to Fridays on October 10
WILL WATCH

EXCELLENT show. fills my "wacky detective" television show quota for the fall. however, it's main night is going to be Fridays, so i don't expect it to be around long (thanks a lot NBC).

Tuesdays
7PM
90210
The CW; first season already in progress
WILL CHECK OUT

i was a fan of the original (god knows why) so i have to check out the remake. it can't be that bad, can it?

House
Fox; fifth season already in progress
WILL WATCH

the end of the first episode of this season was AMAZING. this is a show that's not afraid to take risks with it's main cast members. and i like that.

8PM
Fringe
Fox; first season already in progress
WILL CHECK OUT

it's X-Files for the new generation. if i were to watch this show seriously i would laugh at the absurdities (in the cases and, moreover, in the writing) - so it's nowhere near as good as X-Files - BUT for some reason it's fun to watch. it's just cheesy goodness. oh and the main actress is hot.

9PM
The Shield
FX; seventh season already in progress
WILL WATCH

not as good as the start of last season (some of the best television i've ever seen EVER was the start of the sixth season) but still great. only 7 more episodes left until it's all over. :(

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
NBC; 10th season premieres September 23
WILL WATCH

i'm a fan, come hell or high water. what can i say? it'll be interesting this year because at least 2 of the main characters left. see who they got to replace them.

Wednesdays
9PM
Sons of Anarchy
FX; first season already in progress
WILL CHECK OUT

after 3 episodes, this is turning out to be a pretty good show about a biker gang that is in it's final days (sort of like The Shield is all about the final days of the Strike Team). sure you could put the plot onto any "gang" situation - mafia, yakuza, Bloods/Crypts - but it's still an interesting show. oh and the mom from Married with Children is a BADASS and Ron Pearlman is awesome like usual.

Thursdays
7PM
My Name is Earl
NBC; fourth season premieres September 25
Special one-hour episode
MIGHT WATCH

if i happen to be home with nothing to watch.

7:30PM
Kath & Kim
NBC; premieres October 9
WILL CHECK OUT

if i happen to be home with nothing to watch.

8PM
The Office
NBC; fifth season premieres September 25
Special one-hour episode
MIGHT WATCH

if i happen to be home with nothing to watch.

8:30PM
30 Rock
NBC; third season premieres October 30
MIGHT WATCH

if i happen to be home with nothing to watch.

9PM
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
FX; fourth season already in progress
WILL WATCH

i still think their first season was comedic gold and everything after that has been good but not great (absurdity for absurdity's sake isn't always funny) - however, it's still an wholly original comedy that's just my sense of humor.

Life on Mars
ABC; premieres October 9
WILL CHECK OUT

a remake of one of my favorite shows of all time? oh you know i've got to check it out. i'm worried, however, that it won't translate well, that putting it on Thursdays at 9PM is a death sentence (that the show will never have a chance), and that if they HAPPEN to make it past the first half-season, the premise is going to get old. the original only had 16 episodes TOTAL. oh, and the ending? there's NO WAY they could pull that off on American television. no. way.

Fridays
7PM
Crusoe
NBC; premieres October 17
Special two-hour episode
WILL CHECK OUT

mildly interested. seems like something fresh and different, so i'll check it out.

9PM
Life
NBC; moves to Fridays on October 10
WILL WATCH

damn you NBC for renewing Life only to put it in one of the worst time slots EVER. this - along with your canceling of Journeyman, your Knight Rider remake, and your My Own Worst Enemy show - makes me think you lost your mind around the time of the writer's strike. if Heroes ends up sucking, i may just be done with you.
