Do not go Firefly on me.....
I need my fall season Entertainment Weekly issue to tell me what will be the things I should look forward to! It must be coming soon... maybe next week.
In all seriousness, I don't really know too much about the new shows. As I mentioned in the "I'm so behind" thread, I tend to record almost any new broadcast network drama or comedy that sounds interesting, so that my bases are covered. Some of them I do start watching right away and others I give them some time to see if people say "hey this is really good!" or the networks make the decision for me and cancel it.
I'm not at all well versed in all the upcoming shows but what comes to mind for me, sitcom-wise, are the Michael J Fox show and the Sean Hayes show. Love them both, so will check out both shows.
That is nice. Thanks for sharing!
Huh. You'd think that someone named "Miss Remembering" wouldn't have a tough time recalling which show she heard about.
For me it's no longer a question of tuners, but a question of HD space. Still, even at my busiest moments on a 1TB drive, I only ever got down below 50% briefly. And that's probably because I had about 30 movies saved up.
Yeah, I'll take a look at the MJF show. But kinda hoping he still has time to make guest appearances on The Good Wife. He's awesome there.
I'm going to add Agents of SHIELD, Michael J Fox, Brooklyn 9-9 and Mom.
Thought about Tomorrow People, but given it's CW, I'm giving it whatever the opposite of the "benefit of a doubt" is and will catch up later if I hear good things.
They rented some of my wife's paintings just a few days ago to use in the background of one episode. I'm hoping the show lasts long enough so that they actually show that episode.
Looks like TV Guide has their Fall Preview stuff up.
I use this grid to prepare for the new season. I go to FutonCritic and look at every new show from the grid. I figure out which ones I want to try, based on the description. In general, I will try almost every 30 minute sitcom, and dramas that don't appear to be chick-lit on the surface (I don't need any Gray's Anatomy).
I don't use previews or commercials. Those are often NOTHING like the show itself.
I then highlight the grid, yellow for returning series I watch, pink for newbies I want to try. I also add the ones I want to try to the Futon Critic "My Shows" list. I add SPs as the new shows start to appear on my TiVo.
This year I added:
We are Men
Back in the Game
Super Fun Night
Welcome to the Family
Sean Saves the World
With sitcoms, I *try* to make it all the way thru the first episode before I decide pass/fail. If it's on the bubble, I will give it two episodes. For dramas, they have to keep me from Minute Zero. As soon as they lose me, SP deleted.
My guess: Based on previous years, of these 18, I will be lucky if 5 make the grade. I'm like laria, I try to record everything remotely interesting sounding, and delete from there. Some get whacked almost immediately, others make it for several eps before I zap 'em (I'm looking at you Revolution).
Hope time Warner/CBS fiasco is resolved or I will have to look for another Tivo for those over the air.
new shield promos
A lot of new shows interest me and I've set up a couple dozen ARWL for them. What I need to do is sit down and look up when everything is on and arrange things on my tivos to accommodate as much as I can.
I have a spreadsheet for that that I fill out every Fall and Winter/Spring season. I have it set up though so that ABC/NBC/CW are all on one of the S3's, and CBS/FOX are on the other. It seems like every year there is one night and one time slot that has a 5 way conflict, though.
This season with the DirecTV Genie and 5 tuners, I'm not overly worried about setting everything up. I looked that the TV Guide grid, and I think there's only one or two times where I would have had an issue when I only had 2 tuners. With five, no longer an issue. Space might be, but we'll see. If it looks like space will be an issue, I'll just hang a 2TB drive off the Genie.
The Shield is coming back??!! AWESOME!!
Hope that was just a sarcasm there because Vic Mackey isn't coming back ever.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is coming this fall, though.
Yeah, it was wishful thinking because I knew better. I don't think Chiklis will EVER have a role as great as Vic Mackey...
