The new TV series so far

The TV season has started and as any good bored customer, I tried to give a fair chance on most new shows. I don’t know if piracy had any effect on this, but this year’s shows suck. Except “Pushing Daisies” and the very light “Reaper”, everything else sucks royally. The show that has destroyed most expectations is “Bionic Woman”. It’s dull, boring and stupid. “Chuck” is not badly done, but one loses interest in it really fast. The pretty similar in overall concept “Reaper” though fairs better, even if it probably has 1/4 of Chuck’s budget. And then there’s the really horrible stuff, like “Big Shots”, “Dirty Sexy Money”, “Private Practice” and the very mediocre “K-Ville”, “Journeyman”, “Cavemen”, “Cane” and “Moonlight”. I can’t wait for “Terminator” and “Women’s Murder Club” to start too so I can scrutinize them.

By far, the best new series of the season is “Pushing Daisies” (from the creators of “Dead like me”). It’s fresh, it’s clever and it has style. This show can become a classic, but they should also turn it more serialized rather than being so “episodic” as it is now. JBQ says that the show is similar to “Amelie” in many ways, and apparently some agree too. Update: JBQ was right. Amelie was the inspiration for the creator of “Pushing Daisies”!

Well, nice women can compensate that to an extent :))

The pilot of Reaper rocked but the second episode lost all its edge. 🙁 I’m still very entertained by Chuck. 100% agreement with you on Pushing Daisies. Very cool show. Bionic Woman. . . yea. . . zzzzzz. I wanted it to be good but it got borked up somewhere along the way. Didn’t even bother seeing the other ones you mentioned.

I’m giving Journeyman more time. Bionic Woman does suck. After one episode she says “I know what I can do now.” Lame. The new Terminator series looks good from the pilot.

Instead of MoonLight which is a clear ripoff of Blood Ties, see if you can get the show Blood Ties to watch. I think it is limited in what parts of the States you can see it. But that is ok since Tanya Huff started writing the books like ten+ years ago, and they will be in any store with a good SF/Fantasy section.
