Alright, I know I've been a bad blogger. Last semester was intense with that whole "writing a novel" thing. But I'm determined to get back on track. I won't be doing a full week in review that deals with basically every show I watch because it is just too much. But perhaps 5 shows a week. I wanted to make it a top 5, but then I realized that will be hard to determine what I want to be my top 5 and it will keep me from including some shows that I like to talk about that don't necessarily make it that high up on my list. Plus what about the shows that are crap?? That's fun to talk about too. And just for fun, I'll probably include some General Hospital stuff in there too.
Here are some things I'm looking forward to in the winter season:
ABC and NBC comedy nights. I love my dramas. I obsess over them. But I also LOOOOVE a good laugh, and recently the comedy nights have been bringing them en masse. Cougar Town and Modern Family are both hysterical, and I don't think that Cougar Town gets nearly enough love. What more do you want than a glass that can hold an entire bottle of wine and a animal cemetery with a dove, squirrel and lizard (with a shoe attached)? How about Penny Can? And Modern Family....well..... It's just funny, ok? NBC is the home of meta comedies. Community and 30 Rock bring more meta in one hour than the rest of the networks combined for the rest of the week. Plus Joel McHale in his skivvies a lot. I'm sold.
USA Network. There are a bunch of new shows on the way, starting with Fairly Legal next week. I have yet to be truly disappointed in an original program from this network. Plus Matthew Bomer has such pretty pretty blue eyes on White Collar.
Supernatural: SAMMY HAS HIS SOUL BACK. Something tells me this doesn't mean it's going to be all sunshine, lollipops and rainbows for our Winchester Bros, but I'm still excited about it. (Now about the Samulet.....)
Bones: Bones had The Gravedigger. Booth is going to get The Sniper. And someone is gonna get dead. I think I've figured out who, but I'm still hoping it's Hannah. It won't be. Friggin Hannah!
The Good Wife: More Matt Czuchry. That's all I want, people. I'm still going through Gilmore Girls withdrawls and NBC took away my Jess (rightly so... Heroes turned to crap. But still...).
HIMYM: After the countdown, it's hard to believe that the funny will be back in full force (I'm still drying the tears) but having been on both sides of the "dead family member" fun, so I know that the funny still exists even with the horrible horrible sadness. Besides - with the sadness comes more Alyson Hannigan crying. And she cries better than anyone!
Justified: Ummm.... do I really need to explain this one? We all know I love it. A lot. And feel compelled to pimp it out.
New Shows/Miniseries!!: Some I'm not sure about (Hello, Harry's Law). But some I'm VERY hopeful for, such as Light's Out (FX) and Game of Thrones (HBO). I'm also very VERY excited for Mildred Pierce on HBO because I have just a tiny girl crush on Kate Winslet. Ok, it's a huge girl crush. Shut up. I'm also excited for Off the Map. Three reasons: 1-Shonda makes good doctors. 2-Zach Gilford. 3-Zach Gilford. Yes, that's Zach twice, but for those of you that watched Friday Night Lights, you understand why he gets 2 spots. Matt Saracen forever!! Sigh...... Ahem. Anyway, there are more, but these are just a few.
There are so many more shows I am looking forward to starting/coming back. This is my problem and why I have no life besides my graduate work and kids!
So, what are you all looking forward to? Anything you desperately want me to talk about in the blogs?
(And while I have you here---- how AMAZING was the finale to the Yin/Yang trilogy on Psych? I love you, James Roday.)
