For goodness sakes, it’s Friday. Let’s forget about all the junk going on and live in TV land for a few minutes, yes?
I posted my Fall TV plans a few months ago and we’re well into the season now. Let’s gather around the water cooler and talk about how it’s going.
Once Upon a Time
The first episode of the season really freaked me out with that dementor thing so I turned it off half way in the ep and swore off the show. But then Mary assured me at Allume that the dementor thing had gone away and the season was good.
So I gave it another try and sure enough, this season has been great. I’m not sure I love Mulan or the fact that Snow is separated from Charming but they definitely have been able to keep it going even after everyone realized who they were. The addition of Hook has been fabulous and I am enjoying some more back story. If nothing else, I watch so I can read SortaCrunchy’s recap posts every week.
I was doubtful about Revenge but I’m so glad I hung in there. It’s been a fantastic season. There was an episode a few weeks ago that was so good, it could have been a great season finale. I like the addition of the new character. I like the addition of her mother. I like the drama with the pregnancy. Well done, folks.
By far, this season is Parenthood’s best. Great storylines, great acting. Makes me cry. Just brilliant. I’m so entirely thrilled for Matt Lauria in his new role on there. Ryan York + Amber FTW! I just have to post these pictures because oh my goodness, I just do.
I knew him first, Amber, ok? If you have no idea what those are about, go read here.
And before you think there was any funny business going on, I’m obviously happily married and so is Matt. I was hugging Luke, ok? Luke. Who wouldn’t want to hug Luke Cafferty? Matt is actually very awesome and has a BEAUTIFUL and TALENTED wife Michelle Armstrong we got to meet as well so go check her out.
Modern Family continues to keep us in stitches. I wouldn’t say it’s the best season but the Obama line the other night made up for it in spades.
Hm, what do I think about Nashville? Intense. Very intense. The acting is superb, really. The storylines live up to its dramatic name. But I kind of hate that the main couple is falling apart. Neither really are faithful to their partners. Both are a bit selfish and shallow. It seems everyone is just chasing money. I miss the rock solid relationship of Coach Taylor and Tami in Friday Night Lights. But the singing and the chemistry. Oh, it’s all so good. I do wonder what you Nashvillian folks think about it?
Oh and since I mentioned Coach, why not another FNL picture?
Someone get Kyle Chandler back on my TV screen, please.
This show wasn’t even on my radar this year but I’m so glad I checked it out. This is a fantastic drama/action series. The acting can be a bit sketchy by the main character when he’s trying to play his old character but it has definitely improved over the last episode or two. I enjoy the idea that the main character and Laurel both fight for the good of their city. Above all, the action scenes are just tremendous and worth the watch.
While I’m not on the edge of my seat each week this this show, both Scott and I enjoy watching a show together. I appreciate the intensity and the action and feel more like I’m watching a movie than TV series. Scott Speedman and Andre Braugher are just such great actors, they make me believe in it. Unfortunately, I think the two female characters played by Daisy Betts and Autumn Reeser are weak and if there was any area of improvement, that would be it.
Shows I’ve axed
Well, this was no Sherlock. The show was interesting but I found it hard to follow and lacking enough wit for me to enjoy.
Bad acting. Bad characters. Horribly slow storyline.
It wasn’t a bad show but my Wednesdays were already busy and there weren’t too many characters to like very much. Perhaps I should give it another chance. Anyone really enjoying it?
Mob Doctor, 666 Park Avenue and Animal Practice were too bad to even go into detail.
I still haven’t checked out Beauty and the Beast. Anyone? How is it?
OK that’s it. What say you? Which of these are you watching too and what do you think?
