More New Shows

Let's finish up that Hot List from TV Guide:

K-Ville - Cop show that's set in New Orleans. It's also shot in N'Awlins. (Which way do you say it?) I like that. It's trying to give back to NO and let the world see what it looks like now. But it's still a cop show. One white cop, one black cop. In plain clothes. It may take more than N'Awlins to get me to watch.

Gossip Girl - You have got to be kidding me. High-schoolers with too much money. Won't watch. Not interested.

Reaper - This goes against my basic thought - the Grim Reaper can't be funny. This looks funny. Poor 21 year old, Sam, had his soul sold to the Devil before birth and now he has a new boss. Satan needs someone to find his escapees. I know, that doesn't sound like the Bible. It's on the CW -that usually means I really have to want to watch it (Gilmore Girls.)

Cane - Jimmy Smits. I'll watch. I love to look at him (sorry, Honey) and it's a Latin soundtrack. What's not to watch? A large Cuban family with lots of money and all their problems. Soap opera, you say? Jimmy Smits, I say.

Bionic Woman - Of course, I watched Jamie Sommers as a girl! I still remember her pushing her hair back to hear better (Totally illogical.) I would watch just because of that. Yall know how much I love Battlestar Galactica - same producer. I hope it'll be okay for my kids cause it's the Bionic Woman!

That's what TV Guide says are the hottest shows. There were a few more that I want to see and I'll be writing more about them later. But, let's face it, there are just so many hours in a day and no one is paying me to watch TV.

Fall Shows

It's that time again. Time for me to buy a TV Guide and see what they think I should watch. This year's Hot List was in the Guide for last week and I'd like to offer my opinions.

Pushing Daisies - I've seen the ads for this show and I love the look of it. It has a beautiful, otherworldly sense. Just what this nerdy girl likes. Story of a man who can resurrect the dead with his touch - and then touch again to make dead again. I don't think there are supposed to be spiritual overtones. I would watch this if only to see Kristin Chenoweth - she is a wonder. Her voice and face are worth a stop. She's even a Believer.
Back To You - Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton as small-town news anchors with a past. Looks like a good-ole-fashioned sitcom. Maybe the two of them can step it up a notch above same, same.
Dirty Sexy Money - Yet another soap opera. Now, soap operas aren't bad just they always seem so nasty. Story of a incredibly rich family and the lawyer who inherits their pain. I probably won't bother. Not very family-friendly.
Chuck - Ahhhh, another show for nerds! TV Guide reported that it got a standing ovation at Comic-Con (THE Nerd Convention.)Looks funny, too. Normal guy that turns unwitting into a spy. My favorite - Spys, laughs, cute nerd - I'll watch this one.
Private Practice - Now, IF, and, only IF, I were to watch a nasty soap opera, this would be the one. I did (accidentally) watch the mini-pilot that came on that night on Grey's Anatomy. It's a Grey's spin-off - nuff said.
That's TV Guide's Top Five - I'll finish the list when I get a chance.
