One More Thing Before We Go: DVR Alert for Thursday

What is that sound I hear? Is it an angels choir or is it Thursday Night TV? Hard to tell the difference. So obviously I can’t wait for the most diverse show for adults on TV. Grey’s Anatomy starts up again on ABC with a 2-hour premiere from 9pm to 11pm. I was actually on Team Rose, but maybe if Meredith stops being so awful and wishy washy, I’ll make the switch to Team MerDer this season. By the way, I just got into a terrible fight with 2 of my co-workers, b/c I’m also on Team Jacob for the Twilight series/upcoming movie. Apparently, I’m a bit of a square peg when it comes to these things. Ugly Betty is before that on ABC from 8-9pm. If she picks Henry, I will stop watching this show — that’s how strongly I feel about last season’s cliffhanger. Team Gio all the way. Also, I’m always rooting for Wilhemina. She may be evil, but at least she isn’t a trust fund baby. Though, I still haven’t forgiven her for being mean to my favorite Golden Girl, Betty White, in that one episode. Remember that episode? My Name is Earl, 8-9pm, NBC: He’s back to the list. I liked jail, and I liked the coma, but I love the list the best. Good return to form Earl writers. The Office, 9-10pm, NBC: Nothing will ever, ever, ever, be more romantic and hoped for than when Pam and Tim finally got together on the English version of The Office, but I’m still following them on the American version. Please don’t string this out forever, Office¬†writers¬†— I hate American TV for doing that. However, I’m over the moon about Dwight and Angela possibly getting back together. I love when...

Set Your DVR By It: Heroes w/ BBT and HIMYM on the Side

So it was a long, cruel summer, and though I thank BBC America and the Olympics for tiding me over with Dr. Who, Spaced, Torchwood, Skins, and all the synchronized diving I could stand, I’m more than happy to welcome the Fall TV schedule back into my life. Here’s the Bad News: The new kids shows pretty much all look like they suck — with just a handful of exceptions. Here’s the Good News: A ton of our favorite shows are coming back, and with full seasons this time! And here’s the Even Better News: For the next few weeks, I’m going to be giving you DVR alerts either one or two days beforehand, so that you don’t miss a moment of the shows you should be watching (read: the shows I think you should be watching). That all said, here’s your first DVR Alert: Monday, September 22nd Heroes, NBC, 9-10pm: Okay I know that the second season of Heroes was a let down, and that the Latina hero was annoying, and that the black girl hero was underused, and that they split up Masi Oka and his sidekick, and that the flying guy was enh, and that they just didn’t seem to know what to do with by beloved Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars fame. But I’m hoping that Tim Kring has hired some writers that can actually do romance and that they find some kick-ass use for the black girl hero and make the Latina hero stop whining and tell the flying guy to go away and make sure that Masi Oka is never taken from his sidekick again. Do we think it will happen? The Big Bang Theory, CBS, 8pm: My little sister, the chemical engineer actually introduced me to this...
