So, I thought I would share a bit about my other passion. TV! I can't tell you how excited I am that Fall TV is BACK!!! I do my best during the summer to find things that entertain me but it's not easy. I usually can only muster luke warm feelings for Summer programming. So, you can imagine how stoked I am now that my highly addictive programming is here. Now, granted most of the season premieres start next week. However, I am glad to see some shows are starting early.
Tonight Gossip girl has returned. XOXO! I realize that this show is for teenagers but - I like it. Is it an absolute favorite - no, but it entertains me. For any fans out there - here is where we left off last season. Blair and Serena were headed to Paris. Georgina returned with a very large bun in her oven with Dan's name on it. Nate was looking like Mr. Playboy trying to forget Serena. Jenny was being sent away. and the most shocking - Chuck was shot in an alley and his engagement ring was stolen!!! Oh, how will it all turn out - tune in tonight at 9pm to find out!
Tomorrow Parenthood returns. I actually only started watching this show because it starred Lauren Graham and I am a huge Gilmore Girls fan. It took me 3 episodes and I was hooked. I think it is a good show and hope they don't ruin it as so many shows tend to do in season 2.
Wednesday - America's Next Top Model is back for another season of skinny girls complaining. I don't know why I watch this show, but I am convinced that it helped me get pretty wedding pictures. Smize!
So, now that you know what is new this week, let me explain my Fall premiere philosophy. When it comes to new shows I am always leery. The new trend in TV these days is if there aren't a million people watching - it gets cancelled. Especially new shows. I try not to get too invested too soon - just in case. A girl has to protect herself. To many times I have fallen for a show and it was ripped from me after 5 episodes. GRRRRRR! So, I pick which shows sound interesting - This year Mike and Molly (again Gilmore Girls "Suki"), Hawaii 5-0 (I used to watch the original and I think Hubby might like it) and The Defenders (I am a sucker for Vegas, this show has potential to be cancelled after 3 episodes but I am going to give it a try).
I give these new shows 3 episodes to establish characters and story lines - if I am not excited about the show after that - I drop it from my Tivo line-up.
So I will write more next week during the BIG Premiere week! But I thought I would ease you into my crazy TV world slowly.
Remember - Never apologize for your TV choices (no matter how cheesy)!!!
