My Favourite Time of the Year!
The Secret Circle
It’s new fall TV show time! Yahoo. I look forward to this time of year, every year and while it’s not as special as it used to be before year-round launches of new shows, it still recalls back to school, fall resolutions and wonderful, exciting new television friends.
Last year I did not make one new friend in the fall television season, but I have much higher hopes for this year. In fact, after watching Up All Night I am pretty sure we will be friends. Ringer can go either way for me, but I still have hope. But does the CW have no budget whatsoever to shoot action? The boat scene was so embarrassing that I had to look away. A Saturday Night Live skit would have looked more realistic. Still, I love the Sarah Michelle!
New shows, when they are on (I don’t have Canadian channels for all; if you know please do share!).
Ringer Tuesday, Sept 13 (okay I’m a little behind! I sent the excel spreadsheet to my friends on Tuesday) 9p.m. CW or Friday Sept 16 on Global — Buffy back on tv playing twins and her mother! See above comment about really bad special effects. But some nice very clothing.
Up All Night Wed Sept 14 NB C & CTV — Funny Christina Applegate and Will Arnett (married to hilarious Amy Poehler) with Maya Rudolph. Maya’s role has been rewritten since the pilot. I enjoyed!
I mention Free Agents only because it played immediately after Up All Night (the reviews I read told me to skip it). Hank Azaria scares me because he is Mark Anthony Skeletor skinny. I fell asleep half way thru this dreadful offering. Do not bother!
The Secret Circle Thurs Sept 15on CW or Friday on Global: Teens. “Surprise, you’re a witch!” From creators of The Vampire Diaries. I still love Samantha and Charmed never filled my ongoing desire for a good show about witches so I will try it.
Cover Me, Canada Sun Sept 18 on CBC — You can tell it’s a Canadian show because we included the correct punctuation. Copy editors around the world will be proud. Canadian bands cover songs.
2 Broke Girls Mon Sept 19 CBS and CTV (?) — Whitney has 2 sitcoms: the eponymous show and this one which is supposed to be good.
The Playboy Club Mon Sept 19 10 p.m. NBC — Ouch, my feminist sensibilities worry, but Big Love was good. Still I have never celebrated the objectification of women and never thought the Playboy Club or Hugh Hefner were cool.
New Girl Tuesday Sept 20 9 p.m. on Fox — Zoey Deschenel. She has to be better than her sister! (Bones)
The X Factor Wed Sept 21 8 p.m. on Fox & CTV — Simon Cowell returns to tv, thank god. I’m a little worried about myself because I am looking forward to seeing Paula again.
Revenge Wed Sept 21 10 p.m. on ABC — Cute teens. Rich pepole. Revenge. Could 1000s of Presents novels be wrong?
Charlie’s Angels Thurs Sept 22 8 p.m. on ABC — Weak reviews but I do like Minka from Friday Night Lights. Kitsch factor.
Person of Interest Thurs Sept 22 9 p.m. on CBS — Ben from Lost. Plus a hot sexy guy and paranoid plots. Gotta try it – or else they might know I haven’t seen it…
Whitney Thurs Sept 22 9:30 on NBC — Show based on Whitney’s stand up/life. Weak reviews. See 2 Broke Girls instead.
Prime Suspect Thurs Sept 22 10:00 on NBC — Did not expect to like it but the previews look good and Maria Bello is awesome. Even starting to like the hat.
The Gifted Man Friday September 23 at 8 PM on CBS — I have the same feelings about this as I did toward The Good Wife and look how well that turned out. Great cast. Here’s hoping! Jennifer Ehle (the dead wife) is from P&P.
Pan AM Sunday September 25 at 10 PM on ABC — If we’re going to go retro, I so much prefer the dream of being a stewardess than a bunny! Plus there are spies! When I was a kid my career aspiration was spy.
Terra Nova Mon Septp 26 8 p.m. on Fox — All kinds of awesomeness plus Jason O’Mara! 4 million dollars an episode to shoot! Steven Speilberg’s name is attached.
Hart of Dixie Monday September 26 at 9 PM on The CW (does this mean Global is also carrying?) — I adore Rachel Bilson.
Suburgatory Wed Sept 28 8:30 p.m. on ABC — Excellent reviews. I’ll try because these are the same critics who sent me to the wonder that is Modern Family.
Homeland Sun Oct 2 10 p.m. on Thowtime — Fantastic reviews. We need to confirm Canadian time/channel.
