So, this year, I’ve been testing out a few new tv shows and here’s what I’m into so far:
30 Rock – I started watching this one a few days ago and am a big fan. Tina Fey has always been a favorite of mine and Alec Baldwin can really act – I love that guy. Some other supporting characters in the show are quite good and overall, this has been the pick of the season
Heroes – normally I stay away from these drawn out dramatic serials but in this case I faltered (they’ve got superpowers, c’mon!) It suffers from a tv pace when I’m more used to a feature film pace so that’s kinda tough that storylines drag on forever but it’s a decent show if you like these types (not you Luanne, these people do some pretty non-reality based things)
Scrubs – I’ve never really watched scrubs and I do love Zach Braff so I decided to try to start from the top and see how things go. So far, I’m not totally sold but I will probably keep watching. This feels like the TV equivalent of R.E.M. – given what I like, I should like this, but I just can’t make myself…
The Office – This one is pretty ‘must watch’ for me. I really love the characters and you’ve often got some quotable lines or at least some memorable characters after each episode.
So far, I’m looking like the hugest NBC fanboy, but honestly, it’s all coincidence… so far…
Little Mosque on the Prairie – A cbc program that Heidi and I have picked up for the first two weeks. It feels good watching Canadian TV (good, like not shopping at WalMart good) so that’s a plus and it’s pretty topical. I’m not a huge fan of the style of comedy so far, but maybe it’ll grow on me.
Extras – this BBC quick season (6 eps) was a real pleasure, there were some great memorable clips from this last season that I’m still laughing about today.
On the horizon, I’m excited for the starts of The Shield and Entourage coming up
