Howdy, folks. I hope y’all had a fantastic Labor Day weekend! I started out my work week with a computer that went kaput. So sad. It wasn’t even very old–about a year and a half. I’d like to have a moment of silence for that HP Media Center. They don’t make them like they used to, I guess. My husband is going to take a look-see in hopes that perhaps we can raise it from the dead–in which case, would it be a zombie computer? I’m curious. Anyway, back to the task at hand: Tuesday TV!
This is how Tuesdays are going to look this fall:
ABC: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D— Shhh! Can you hear that? That is the sound of every fanboy/fangirl “squeee-ing” at the same time. Beautiful, isn’t it? This series brings together both Joss Whedon AND Marvel Comics fans (who are we kidding, there is quite the overlap there) in an action adventure series. Squeee!! I’m in. ** note: it’s highly likely that I am a fangirl.
CBS: NCIS–In it’s tenth season, NCIS will dish up what it’s fans expect–and plenty of it.
CW: The Originals-– A spin-off of the Vampire Diaries? Well, I may not be the demographic they are aiming for, but I’m guessing they will have an audience for it nonetheless. P.S. All my vampires sparkle 😉
FOX: Dads--I’m not sure exactly why but I have a soft-spot in my heart for Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi (yes, even after his performance in Avatar). That said, I’m not sure how much comedy gold there is yet to mine with the whole “older parent moves in with offspring” genre. I think Shit My Dad Says exhasuted that vein.
NBC: The Biggest Loser–I don’t know why I enjoy this show. They drag the drama out as long as possible (also called Seacresting), but I do find it inspiring. Hello, season 14!
FOX: Brooklyn Nine-Nine–A sitcom about a slacker detective in the NYPD and his new boss could be cool. If done right, it would be a nice counter balance to the serious cops shows out there.
ABC: The Goldbergs–I’m hoping this one is a winner. The premise reminds me of a Wonder Years set in the 1980s.
CBS: NICS Los Angeles–See my notes for NCIS. Then add palm trees and sunglasses.
CW: Supernatural–I keep wanting to watch this show, but never seem to remember. I’ll try to catch a few episodes on Netflix to test the waters.
FOX : New Girl–When this show is good, it’s hilarious. When it’s not, it makes me uncomfortable. Most of the humor now lies with the supporting characters (read: Schmidt).
NBC : The Voice: Results Show–Well, you *have* to watch the results show if you saw the performances, right?
ABC: Trophy Wife–For some reason, this show doesn’t appeal to me–even though it has a great cast. Bradley Whitford and Marcia Gay Harden are reason enough for me to give it a fighting chance. I’ll report back later.
FOX: The Mindy Project–I absolutely loved the first half of its premiere season. The second half…not so much. I’ll still give it another chance, though.
ABC: Lucky 7 –I’m intrigued by this new drama about seven coworkers at a gas station who all win the lottery. Could be cool, right? Also, if I had a million dollars, I’d be rich! 😉
CBS : Person of Interest–Why am I not taking my own advice and watching this show? I’ve heard so many great things. I need to check it out.
NBC : Chicago Fire— I’ve yet to see this series that centers around firefighters and paramedics in Chicago, but I’ve heard it’s not bad. Still, I likely won’t be adding it to my DVR as I can only watch so much before my eyeballs pop out of my head like a cartoon wolf who just saw a lady wolf saunter by.
Now that Tuesday is in the bag, I’ve got to do some research on my Wednesday shows. I see that one of my old, favorite Tuesday shows (Raising Hope) is now moved to Friday. That makes me a little sad and I hope that doesn’t mean it’s a step away from cancellation. Yeah, I know, way to end the post on a positive note, right?
Have a wonderful day!
