OK, so lets pretend i live under a rock where all things TV are concerned, and someone give me the rundown on this thing. V was DO NOT MISS TV for us when we were tykes.
Based on the first three episodes (particularly the third, "Ink") "Heroes" is staging a mini-comeback for viewers with lowered expectations. Claire's storyline still sucks (they always have) but it's setting up a lesbian subplot/crush between her and "Californication's" Madeline Zima that has brought the character from annoying to tolerable. Problem is that Noah/HRG is so far tied too closely to the Claire storyline, thus he's not being used to his fullest potential. Tracy is a mystery (very few scenes) and Mohinder is MIA (he turns up next week for the first time). Robert Knepper (T-Bag from "Prison Break") and his ilk are so far neither annoying or appealing as the new guys (which are neither villains or new heroes) but just mysterious-enough to keep us guessing, and watching. Ray Park as a "Flash"-type knife-wielding assassin is the return for Darth Maul for geeks, but so far he's been barely seen. The biggest surprise is that Sylar's, Peter Petrelli's and Parkman's storylines have become compelling and actually worth investing time in... so far. Peter in particular has become the sort of character many of us wanted to see the show develop after Season 1: an actual hero. Hiro, Ando and Nathan are, well, Hiro, Ando and Nathan (you know what you're gonna get with these three).BrettCullum wrote:I also ditched HEROES after the first part of last season concluded it's VILLAINS story arc. It just stopped doing anything for me. Any thoughts on this year?

Dunnyman wrote:My big surprise on the DVR has been Eastwick. Rebecca Romjin, who normally annoys the hell out of me, is very good as the "did she or didn't she kill her husband" bad girl, Lindsay Price's nerdy reporter is great comic relief and Paul Gross is obviously having fun as the devilish Darryl Van Horne and he's been missed on TV. If the network lets this one find it's audience it could be a solid hit. Hot babes for the guys, hot guys for the girls, interesting storylines and witchcraft? It's pretty darn good so far.

I'd say it's guilty pleasure viewing, much in the same way Savannah was back in the late '90s. Great production values, a game cast and entertaining stories make it a reasonably good soap.

Cougar Town. I mean, seriously, it's only a matter of time before one of the networks actually makes a show called MILF Island.

It's as close as a network comes to canceling a show without actually doing so, which means after the 13th episode airs "Eastwick" joins "Trauma" as dead shows.
Even Lt. Columbo & Jim Rockford knew when to hang it up. Which of course means we will eventually get some good but not as great as the TV show movies.Dunnyman wrote:It's also sad to see Monk ending. It's been one of the most consistently superb shows on TV since day one, but they're right to quit while it's still great. However, there's every reason to believe a once a year or even twice a year TV movie isn't out of the question.

A question? When a show gets cancelled, do they get enough time to revamp the episodes still to be filmed for the most part? My guess is Ugly Betty's got a enough lead time to set up the series finale, but what about others?
