The best thing about fall, the very best thing, is all the new television. It's like Christmas (at least until all my new favorites get cancelled) in big glowing box form. Shiny fun new shows! Something new to watch every night! It's all very exciting. This week we've watched:
Chuck. Oh, man, I really love a nerd/spy combo and this one is great because it's got all the nerdy spy-y goodness without taking itself too seriously. It's sweetly funny and clever and what show could suck that has a character called Captain Awesome? It's not just because he says "awesome" a lot but because he is awesome. Group hug? Awesome.
Heroes. It seemed good. We haven't actually seen the first season yet so I wasn't really sure exactly what was going on but then Sark/Krychek (pretty much the same character, lets be honest. Please see above comment about nerd/spy joy) showed up and I was in. IN.
Bones. Eh. This is a show that I like but don't care if I miss an episode. Basically a vehicle for Boreanaz goodness. Yeah, shut up.
Reaper. I liked this! It has a good "Dead Like Me" premise and is really fun to watch. Not quite as sharp as Chuck but it's sort of unfair to compare the two.
Tonight is the premiere of The Bionic Woman which I'm watching mainly because Battlestar's Katee Sackhoff is in it. Also, why not? It sure beats doing the dishes. Tomorrow night is My Name is Earl and The Office which makes me want to wet myself with excitement, sincerely.
I really do love my television even if it tends to break my heart. Every year a new favorite is cancelled and I swear I'll never fall for it again but I always do. I still hold a flame for Keen Eddie because that one hurt the worst. (Wow, that was how long ago? Four years? I am a champion grudge-holder apparently.)
