The Fall season started with a hell of a lot less fanfare than what I am used to. I almost missed a few episodes but the PVR saved my sorry ass. I did miss a few, my fault for not checking ahead to make sure that the PVR was programmed properly.
I am also displeased that HBO is being a little lazy about posting their Sunday shows to On Demand on a timely basis. And where the fuck is my HBO HD content On Demand? Showtime is doing it, so why is it that there are no HBO HD shows in their On Demand channel?
Fringe: This show is awesome. It has a convoluted plot, just like Lost with a heavy dose of X-Files, yet it is never a chore to follow. It is a cookie cutter show with an overall theme that ties the chapters, which is perfect for a broadcast series.
Bones: The season started with a bit of bullshit divorce drama, but so far it is taking shape very well. I was worried about the shrink type, but so far he is bringing some interesting balance into the mix.
House: Too early to tell, but the show is starting to switch directions. This sucks because it is going to have to build up across at least a half dozen episodes.
CSI Miami:Can’t comment about the season opener without spoiling it, but Ivette figured it out faster than I did. That pisses me off because I figured it out in the first ten minutes, she did it in maybe five.
The Shield: It’s starting to look like a clusterfuck. Great show but this was supposed to be the last season of the show. We’ll see what happens.
Heroes: HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP!!!!!!
True Blood: I am liking this show a lot, and so far we have both noticed tiny little touches here and there that make you think twice. It’s always the little stuff, I am keeping a close eye on this one.
Entourage: I am very happy that Jeremy Piven got that Emmy, they should start giving the Ari Gold Memorial Emmy to the most brilliantly annoying type A character. The man is a natural.
