Gentlemen, start your DVRs

It's that time again, o avid television viewers: the fall premieres are upon us! Here's what I'm interested in this year:

  • True Blood - HBO, 9:00 p.m., 9/7 (it's gotta be better than Moonlight)
  • Dexter - Showtime, 9:00 p.m., 9/28
  • Fringe - Fox, 8:00 p.m., 9/9 (the new X-Files with Pacey)
  • Eli Stone - ABC, 10:00 p.m., 10/14
Fridays and Saturdays - nothin' doin' as yet

Lost will be back in February, I think, and BSG around then too (?). Joss Whedon's new show, Dollhouse comes on in February as well as a mid-season replacement. I am SO excited to have some Whedony television again - it's going to be awesome. And speaking of awesome, can anyone tell me what's going on with Friday Night Lights? Is it only on DirecTV or is it somewhere in the cable-wastelands too?

Okay then. What will you be watching?


  1. FNL is on Direct TV in the fall and then comes onto NBC in February or something. So, theoretically, if you have a friend who gets Direct TV you can watch it when it comes on in Oct. Otherwise, you gotta wait with the rest up us basic cable schlubs

  2. February, huh? Rats. Pluswhich I heard that both Smash Williams and the wheelchair QB (totally blanking on his name right now) are only going to be recurring characters which is too bad. So, more Tim Riggins with no shirt on (and less Tyra and Landry killing people) hopefully.

  3. I've been thinking of picking up Pushing Daisies. How is that?

    I've got Bones & Terminator on the DVR already - I'll be enjoying those very soon

  4. Pushing Daisies is just awesome. Gorgeous sets and costumes. Outlandish and charismatic characters. Quick, quirky and clever dialogue. Kristin Chenoweth is as fabulous as she is tiny - and boy is she tiny! I'd been kicking myself for not recapping it from the git-go until I realized that omigoshtheytalksofast I would never be able to do more than an Impressionist recap at best. PD was really starting to gain some followers when the writers' strike hit; I really hope they can recapture their audience (and the magic) because it is One Cool Show.

    I watched Terminator last night - eh. If the DVR starts to overload as we get into the season, it may have to go.

  5. I'll have some free time soon, maybe I'll grab S1 of PD on dvd to catch up.

    Still haven't watched T:SCC yet. I hope it keeps me amped.
