NBC’s fall preview

Comcast offers for free the pilot episodes of NBC’s new shows under “HD on Demand”. So, I watched tonight “Life”, “Chuck” and “Bionic Woman”. In order:

– “Life” was boring as hell. Unfunny, uninteresting, too pedestrian. Worse than “K-Ville” on FOX.
– “Bionic Woman” is a classic US action show, kinda like “Knight Rider” of sorts. Not very compelling. Back story is just not very interesting I thought. It just didn’t pop up as a killer show.
– “Chuck” was the most interesting of the three. It was funnier, better constructed, although it seems that it also lacks a long term compelling back story. It felt a bit like a sitcom, but taken a bit more seriously.

I don’t think that this year NBC has a “Lost” killer either…

Chuck > Bionic Woman. I haven’t seen Life. The Bionic Woman just goes too fast in the first episode. She has them new implants / limbs and is afraid and upset. Then bam ! She fights another cyborg and somehow has super fighting skill and warns the government guy “I know what I can do now.”

The new Terminator show looks good from what I’ve seen (the first episode) and so does Pushing Daisies, as well as Journeyman.
