Fall TV Week 4 & 5


Raising Hope – This show continues to be so hilarious. I feel like it has gotten better and better as the seasons have gone by. Martha Plimpton and Cloris Leachman continue to deliver the funniest lines.

Hart of Dixie – I can’t even lie. I love this show. It’s so cliché and really not that good but it just make me nostalgic for the WB from the 90’s when Dawson’s Creek, Felicity, 7th Heaven, etc were still on. The love triangle with George and Wade is getting tired. I like her with Wade. She’s so blah with George but Wade keeps her on her toes. This whole Lavon and his ex girlfriend running against each other for mayor is so stupid. I guess they needed another story for Lavon since he has nothing going on with his character except for being the wise friend to Zoe. I will keep watching though.

90210 – Cliche, predictable, overly dramatic; these are all things that describe this show, yet I still love watching it. It’s one of my guilty pleasures. My favorite thing is to do is to yell at the screen at all the plot holes and predict what is going to happen in the episode. This season Dixon is in a wheel chair; Silver is feeling sorry for herself because all her boys left her; Annie has nothing to do but fawn over Dixon; Naomi and Max are married and his friend hates her; Liam is an idiot and being blackmailed by that psycho heffa Vanessa; Navid is trying and failing at being a bad boy; and Adrianna slept with someone else has feelings for him but is staying with Dixon out of pity because he was in an accident. The season just started and it’s already pretty ridiculous. I will stick it out as I have for 4 other seasons.

Arrow – This show is like Batman and Revenge but together. This guy has a list and he’s checking it twice. He also has a lair which he was all set up with computers and other equipment out of nowhere. I know we are supposed to suspend some belief in watching these shows but that part was just a mess. Besides these little annoyances, I liked the show. I feel like I already know where the show is going to go but I like the lead and the different people involved in the story. Not too bad of a pilot. I will keep watching this one and see if it gets better.

Beauty & The Beast – I don’t know about this show. It’s pretty bad; the kind of bad that still makes you watch, like a train wreck. I don’t know why they are calling this show Beauty and The Beast because the beast is not beastly at all. He’s more like the Hulk who only turns beastly when he gets angry. It’s so over dramatic but not in the fun way 90210 is. I think I was laughing for more than half of the premiere episode. Just skip this one unless you are a fan of terrible shows then please by all means continue to watch.

Nashville – It’s fantastic. It’s soapy but smart and beautifully written with amazing acting. I am slightly biased because I LOVE CONNIE BRITTON but even if I didn’t, this is still a great show. Hayden Panettiere is great playing a slutty Taylor Swift-esqe bad girl. Loved her for a long time so I’m very happy that she is back on television. After the premiere, I just see so many places that the show can go. If you were turned off by the Nashville aspect of the show, don’t worry about that there is plenty more there to watch. Give the show a try — unless you hate good  tv.

Chicago Fire – I thought this show was pretty good. I felt like I was watching Law & Order when I watched. Turns out it is produced by Dick Wolf, the producer of the Law & Order franchise. It has a good cast. Taylor Kinney who was Mason, Tyler’s uncle, on The Vampire Diaries all kinds of brooding hotness. Jesse Spencer, from House fame, plays the rival to Taylor Kinney’s character. Monica Raymund (Lie To Me) also stars. It was your typical procedural. Nothing spectacular but I’ll continue watching.

The Vampire Diaries – Sucks to be Matt since everyone is just gonna keep telling him they wished he died all season. I use to love Selena (Stephen and Elena) but after a season of them not being together, I’m way over them and hoping for some more Delena (Damon and Elena) this season. I don’t know what happened at the ending of this. It was so weird. I know all will be revealed soon though. Solid return episode and yesssssssssssssss Klaus is back and hopefully to stay.

What To Watch: October 2


8/7c – CW – Hart of Dixie – Season 2 Premiere. After George confesses his feelings to Zoe, she finds herself having to make a tough decision between George and Wade, leaving the two guys at odds on how to handle the situation. In search of some much-needed girl advice, Zoe makes a new fast friend in former BlueBell resident Ruby Jeffries, who no one is excited to see. Lemon decides it’s time to get her own apartment and a job, but it’s tougher than she thought. Continuing to forge ahead with her new life, Lemon proceeds to return the wedding presents, but a sudden detour to Zoe’s while holding a cake knife creates a stir with the townspeople.

8/7c – FOX – Raising Hope – Season 3 Premiere. The Chance family meets Sabrina’s mother, Tamara (guest star Melanie Griffith), at the funeral of Sabrina’s grandmother, Nana. Nana’s last will and testament, revealed in a video she recorded before she died, has a big impact on Jimmy and Sabrina’s relationship.

Network Upfronts 2012


I know I’m over 3 weeks late here but…. better late than never right? So upfronts happened and brought about the final nail to the coffins of many shows as well as plenty of renewals for the networks. We also get a preview of what the fall 2012 has in store for us.

Lets’s start with ABC. Their cancelled shows for the 11-12 season were Charlie’s Angels, Desperate Housewives, GCB, Man Up!, Missing, Pan Am, The River and Work It. Renewed shows are Castle, Modern Family, Body of Proof, Cougar Town, Dancing With the Stars, Grey’s Anatomy, Happy Endings, Last Man Standing, Once Upon A Time, Private Practice, Revenge, Suburgatory, The Bachelor, and The Middle.

I’m not really sad about any of the shows that were cancelled here. The only one that I feel they should have given more time to was GCB. Maybe let it run a little more in the summer to catch more of an audience. Their ratings weren’t terrible either so I didn’t really understand that one. As for everything that got renewed YES, YES, YES especially Cougar Town. TBS came in with a last minute save on the show because ABC was definitely going to ax it. So come this fall Cougar Town will no longer air on ABC but on TBS. Continue reading Network Upfronts 2012

Postmortem on This Week’s Finales ***SPOILERS AHEAD***


If you haven’t watched any finales (Smash, Hart of Dixie, SNL, Person of Interest, Scandal) from this past week. Stop reading NOW. But then come back after you have 🙂 These are all random thoughts as I watched these.

Continue reading Postmortem on This Week’s Finales ***SPOILERS AHEAD***

Season Finales Monday 05/13/12


Bones – FOX 8/7c – Season 7 finale. The “hacktivist” is back in court on appeal, and Booth and Brennan have to work to prove he is guilty once and for all but in their effort to pin another murder on him evidence comes to light that points to Brennan being a suspect.

 

How I Met Your Mother – CBS 8/7c – Season 9 finale. Lily goes into labor while Marshall and Barney are in Atlantic City; Robin and Ted try to distract Lily from her labor pains. It then jumps to the future on Barney’s wedding day where the gang remembers the time they encouraged Ted to go after the one that got away.

Gossip Girl – CW 8/7c – Season 5 finale. Blair is targeted by Gossip Girl, forcing Serena to make a confession; Nate asks Lola to move in with him; Lily makes a decision about her marriage; Blair makes a choice between Dan and Chuck.

Two And A Half Men – CBS 9/8c – Season 9 finale. Jake graduates from high school and must decide what to do with his life. This makes me feel really old because this kid is graduating high school and when this show started he was like 9 years old.

Hart Of Dixie – CW 9/8c – Season 1 finale. A huge storm is coming towards Bluebell and looks to ruin George and Lemon’s wedding day. Zoe seeking shelter from the storm gets stuck in a barn with Wade. Yes maybe these two will finally get together tonight. And we’ll have all of next season for more back and forth with them because CW renewed it for a second season. YAY!!!

Mike and Molly – CBS 9:30/8:30c – Season 2 finale. It’s Mike and Molly’s wedding day but of course it doesn’t go off without a hitch. Throw in your classic sitcom roadblocks on their way to the altar for a half hour of fun hijinks.

Hawaii Five-O – CBS 10/9c – Season 2 finale. The team goes on a manhunt when one of its own is killed; a team member must choose which one of their kidnapped loved ones will survive. This season has been a pretty good one. Last season’s finale was so good. Hopefully this one is just as good if not better.

Smash – NBC 10/9c – Season 1 finale. This is what it all comes down to. Who will be Marilyn; Karen or Ivy? I don’t even know who I want anymore but I feel that based on the soapy nature of this show that Karen is going to get it and then Ivy, in her pissed off state, is going to tell Karen that she and Dev slept together. Apparently Ellis’ true intentions are also going to be revealed on tonight’s finale. I don’t care as long as we get rid of him somehow. I don’t think I have ever hated a character more than him. It’s not even a oh I love to hate him thing like with Derek. Ellis is just a waste and he needs to go far far away.
