New Season

Traveling without moving
Originally uploaded by FredArmitage.
Over the next week the TV networks launch most of their returning and new shows. Being a devoted TV watcher I have scrutinized what is out there and I have made a carefully considered list of what to DVR.

Unlike most people I don't really like most of the retuning shows. I am not into House, or Desperate Housewives, and I can't stand Grey's Anatomy. How can a show centred around a group of whiny characters be so popular?

Over the last month I have been preparing for returning shows that I heard good things about, but sadly had missed by picking up the DVD's. I can now tell you that 30 Rock is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. Therefore it will get to spend time on my DVR with my other favorite comedy, Two and Half Men. Mark and I are almost through the first season of Heros as well. And are absolutely addicted. I wish Milo Ventimiglia would get his hair cut, but besides that I can see what all the hype was about. I am very excited to see what happens next!

But I have also decided to program in the following new shows: Bionic Woman, Dirty Sexy Money, Gossip Girl, Reaper, and Moonlight. How many of them will be deleted from my timer list after two episodes I don't know. The more important question is, which one will I fall in love with that the network will cancel after only a handful of episodes?

I had no idea you like two and a half men. I love that show. I think the writing is so original and funny. I really like the episodes when the mother is on.
