GO ON and THE NEW NORMAL: Fall TV 2012 [Worth Watching?]

Despite getting rid of cable as of October 1st, I am still totally committed to reviewing all of the new scripted fall TV shows (as long as they’re on broadcast). However, there was a mix up or I got confused, and somehow I ended up missing the pilots of both GO ON and THE NEW NORMAL...

HELL ON WHEELS: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

I know I said that I wasn’t going to cover new cable shows this Fall, and for the most part I haven’t — though, I’ve heard AMERICAN HORROR STORY is okay to good — but still missing DEADWOOD as I do, I had to give this new AMC show, HELL ON WHEELS at least one...

GRIMM and ALLEN GREGORY: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

It occurs to me that I haven’t given a golden DVR ticket to any male-led shows all season. How bizarre. Well, this weekend I had the chance to correct that with the premieres of GRIMM and ALLEN GREGORY. Did they make it on to my DVR? Let’s find out! Overview GRIMM: An NYC...

ONCE UPON A TIME: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

I tend to be a little leery of fraternal twins when it comes to Fall TV. For example it took me a whole year to give ER a chance because it premiered at the same time as CHICAGO HOPE. I actually ended up liking both shows — I even watched ER faithfully until its season finale, but still...

MAN UP! Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?

I really did not have high hopes for this ABC sitcom, which follows the rather problematic and popular-this-season theme, of men not being manly enough these days. I’ve already given you my thoughts on LAST MAN STANDING (a bit better than expected) and HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN (even worse...

SUBURGATORY Review: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

Being a big fan of the movie, EASY A, I was really looking forward to this new ABC sitcom, which many critics have been comparing to the acclaimed movie. Did it live up to its hype? Let’s discuss. Overview: After a single father (Jeremy Sisto) discovers a pack of condoms in his...

HART OF DIXIE Review: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

Yesterday, I watched two very different kinds of shows, one that came with a ton of hype, TERRA NOVA, and one that I didn’t know was even going to be on the air, until I was compiling my Fall TV 2011 Challege watch list — that would be HART OF DIXIE. How did it all turn out? Well,...

WHITNEY, A GIFTED MAN, and PAN AM Reviews: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watchin...

Yesterday I got home and watched three shows, none of which will be added to my queue. So let’s discuss WHITNEY, A GIFTED MAN, and PAN AM … with a bunch of sighing: Overview WHITNEY: An anti-marriage photographer navigates her three-year relationship with a nice guy who owns an...

CHARLIE’S ANGELS, PERSON OF INTEREST, PRIME SUSPECT Reviews: Fal...

Can you say more drama for your mama? Due to a recording conflict at my BFF’s house (I spent the night there before heading to upstate New York for a wedding in a field), I wasn’t able to see  NBC’s much-hyped sitcom, WHITNEY. But all the new fall dramas that popped off...

REVENGE Review: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

Though, I really like Madeleine Stowe (12 MONKEYS – hey, hey hey!) and Emily VanCamp (I even stopped watching BROTHERS & SISTERS after she left), I didn’t have high hopes for their new night time drama, REVENGE. Was I right? Was I wrong? Here’s my review: Overview: A...

NEW GIRL and UNFORGETTABLE Review: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

FINALLY, a couple of  shows I was looking somewhat forward to watching: NEW GIRL, starring elfin movie-star, Zooey Deschanel, Damon Wayans Jr. (from HAPPY ENDINGS), the other deputy from THE WALKING DEAD, and some random dude I’ve never heard of; and UNFORGETTABLE, a procedural about a...

2 BROKE GIRLS Review: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

Yesterday I watched two women-centered shows, neither of which I had very high hopes for, because of their situations: THE PLAYBOY CLUB, which is set in the 60s, at the Playboy Club in Chicago, and 2 BROKE GIRLS, which is set in a diner in contemporary New York. Well, I was totally right...

THE SECRET CIRCLE Review: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

Last night, I channeled my inner-teenager to watch the latest series in CW’s popular YA-book-to-TV-show formula. How did it go? Well, teen me didn’t exactly squee. Here’s my report on the THE SECRET CIRCLE: Overview A newly orphaned Cassie, returns to her mother’s...

UP ALL NIGHT and FREE AGENTS Reviews: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

I hear COMMUNITY has gotten better, as has PARKS & RECREATIONS. Also, I love Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, and Hank Azaria, so I had high hopes for NBC’s new comedy block starring all of them — though I also had major resentment that it didn’t pop off until 10pm....

THE RINGER Review: Fall TV 2011 [Worth Watching?]

I was so disappointed with Fall TV 2010 that I complained about it clear into 2011. But maybe that was unfair, considering that I hadn’t given most of the new Fall TV season a chance. For all I knew a few of the cancelled shows that I never watched might have been the bee’s knees....
