Upcoming Television Season

Postby Rowan » Wed August 27th, 2008, 6:51 pm

Well, now that we're finally at the end of summer and new television seasons will be starting up again within the next month, are there any new ones you've seen advertised that appeal to you? Some you pray will bomb?

Other than the ones I've watched in the past, I'm glad to see Chuck will be back. I thought it was cute. I will also have a look at My Own Worst Enemy. On the downside, I sincerely hope that Kath & Kim BOMB horribly. What were they thinking with this load of c-rap?

There are a few shows I wanted to check out but as I already watch WAY TO MANY, I had to narrow the field down, so of the new batch I'm checking out:
Crusoe
The Mentalist (That Simon Baker is a hottie)
My Own Worst Enemy

There's a miniseries on Coco Chanel starring Shirley McClaine on Sept 13th I plan to check out as well.

And I agree about "Kath & Kim", ugh!

They should have just showed the original Australian series which was very entertaining in the first few series.

There's also a new show about vampires that will be on HBO; not into vampires but it's written by Alan Ball whom I love!

I was wondering that?! It looks he gets more people on that island then in the book, maybe like "Gilligan's Island" but much older of course.
