My “Must See Television” Shows of 2008

Hi all!

So this is a first… I was “tagged” by Trench over at 7 Miles Down to complete this “meme” by the end of the week… and as this is Friday, I’m running out of time! 😉

My three “Must See TV” picks for the season:

1. Fringe

Fringe is JJ Abrams‘ new show on Fox and I have to say I’m hooked. Once again he’s taken an intriguing premise that mixes the modern world with the supernatural (as he did in Alias, which I loved) and then he throws in a solid helping of well defined characters for good measure.

2. Bones

Bones is the perfect mix of mystery and fun. It’s taken over NCIS‘s spot because of the humor and sarcasm, but will most likely stay there if the writing continues to be as strong as it’s been in the first few episodes of the season.

3. Big Bang Theory

Big Bang Theory is just a hoot. I’m a geek. Not quite as brainy (who is) as the crew on Big Bang, but I lived in a similar situation with a group of less than socially adept individuals (myself included) all through college. We survived, but it’s hilarious to watch these guys stumble along through life!

I’m going to tag… Jean at Sizzling Popcorn, Petra at Lil Blog of Horrors, and Base Guardian over at Superheroes Base.

Rules:

1. List your ‘Must-see TV shows’ for this season (no minimum, no maximum).
2. Tag as many people as shows you list.

What’s on your ‘Must-see TV’ list this season?

And the schedule looks something like this:
  • Stargate: Atlantis (Friday July 11)
  • Eureka (Tuesday July 29)
  • Bones (Wednesday Sept 3)
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (Monday Sept 8)

  • Two and a Half Men (Monday Sept 22)
  • NCIS (Tuesday Sept 23)
  • The Mentalist (Tuesday Sept 23)
  • CSI: NY (Wednesday Sept 24)
  • Chuck (Monday Sept 29)
  • Numb3rs (Friday Oct 3)
  • CSI (Thursday Oct 9)

So it’s another busy week for my DVR…

Let’s give Thanks for the Writers

Hey all…

It seems that the Writers will resume talks with the Studios and Networks after the holidays (courtesy of Variety). I think this is a very good thing and hope they all get their acts together.

Without the writers, there are no movies, no television shows, not even any commercials… So they are the grease that keeps the gears of the media production industry from grinding to a halt… And when the scripts run out, they will certainly do that.

We can only hope that it happens sooner than later for all the freshmen shows of the season… I’m addicted to Chuck, Bionic Woman, and Big Bang Theory to name a few, and without new scripts for these shows, we’ll be seeing a lot of re-runs and (pardon my French) crappy reality television sooner than later.

So to the studios and networks, I ask them to give thanks to the writers. Without them we’ll all be turning off our televisions and stop seeing movies at the theater. On the other hand, the movie rental industry (online and traditional DVDs) should pick up briskly. 🙂

Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
