    I try to avoid the sneak peaks and the commercials. I like to judge these shows on it's own merit. There was one show where there was a commercial for it recently, a sitcom, and I turned to my wife and said, if that's the scene they think is funny enough to sell the show, we might as well just skip it. (The Allison Janney show...forget the name). I don't need a network talking head (or a critic for that matter) telling me when something is good. With a DVR, it's easy, I record, I watch, and then I judge :)


    All I can say to that, is you probably don't wanna borrow my phone or tablet :D

    Mom.

    That's one that I liked the preview for quite a bit. I watched it twice, and laughed harder the second time. That seemed to bode well. :)

    Plus, Chuck Lorre. :)

    Maybe the preview is better than the commercial. The commercial had Janney talking to her daughter and made some comment that was completely unfunny. My wife looked at me and we almost simultaneously said PASS!! I'm not a Janney fan so I wasn't that enthused with the show anyway. I have the pilot set to record, from before we saw that ad, so we'll see.

    When I think about it, the only Chuck Lorre show that I'm aware he did that I've ever liked is Big Bang Theory, so perhaps that's the anomaly and I generally don't like his stuff

    only thing I like(d) recently is Big Bang Theory, but it took a dive after S1/S2. He did EP Roseanne though.

    I generally like CL shows:

    Roseanne (writer not creator)
    Grace Under Fire
    Dharma and Greg
    Mike and Molly
    Big Bang Theory (the Sheen years)
    BBT

    Fixed....ooops!!

    I did not like any of those shows listed except TBBT. Not a one. So yeah, if that's his credits, TBBT is the anomaly and I'm probably right about not going to like the new one. But I'll give the pilot a shot.

    Big Bang Theory (the Sheen years) - The Sheen years?

    touche` :D

    It's really only the one episode when Raj announced to a bar full of people that we was going to be in People Magazine. Sheen turned around from the bar and said "let me know when you're on the cover".

    ETA: found the video.

    Twice a year IGN.com does an article listing just about every show and when it starts. I always bookmark that article when I see it and check it once a week. I then set recordings for shows that look interesting.

    I have set recordings for Dads and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I've heard bad things about Dads and to be honest, just from the title I don't expect to like it. I'm going to watch it because it is the Family Guy guy. :)

    I know many people are tired of Bones, but I'm excited for both of these tonight

    Bones
    Season 9 : Episode 1
    The Secrets in the Proposal: In the Season 9 premiere, the remains of a State Department accountant are found in a hotel's air-conditioning unit, but the investigation takes an unusual turn when Booth discovers that an old Army pal, who's now a CIA agent, is also looking for clues. Meanwhile, Booth seeks advice from a friend and former priest about his relationship with Brennan, who is uncertain about their future together.


    Sleepy Hollow
    Pilot Season 1, Episode 1
    In the series premiere of this update of Washington Irving's classic tale, Ichabod Crane wakes up in the 21st century but finds his 18th-century nemesis, the Headless Horseman, has also come along for the ride. After a local sheriff is killed, Crane teams up with Det. Abbie Mills to sort out the mystery and its historical implications, though her supervisor is skeptical of all the supernatural shenanigans

    I watched the goldbergs on the abc app and besides a tiny bit of nostalgia and two chuckles it was not very good. Biggest issue with it was it was not funny. This is a problem for a comedy.

    Other than the typo, the only show I did not like was dharma and greg. Largely because Jenna Elfman usually gets on my nerves.

    Thanks for the tip. I did the one month free trial and got the EW issue. They don't even want a credit card for the trial. Good selection of mags.

    i streamed the trophy wife pilot last night. the kids were ok, but the rest of the supporting cast was lacking, all but one of the story lines were way too familiar (overused), and the primary reasons i watched, bradley whitford and marcia gay hardin, were disappointing.

    for me, it was a combination of writing and premise - oh, well, another sp bites the dust.

    I like Bradley Whitford, but not sure there's enough in this show to have me watch. Actually Marcia Gay Hardin kind of cancels out Bradley. I can't stand her.

    I love it. It's like I pay for People and EW and Food and Wine and get 97 magazines for free. :)

    Plus, with the payments spread out like that, I don't feel the hit of the $130 People sub all at once.

    Plus, no magazines to throw away.

    It's win all around for me. :)

    I don't think it would make sense for me to get it... I have People @ $26.30 a quarter (through Amazon) and EW is $25 a year. Even though People is expensive, I'm still saving $50 a year. If I read more magazines it would be good, but as it is I have a lot of build up of People. :eek: I clearly need to get to the gym more (it's my gym magazine) or stop watching Netflix instead when I am there. :)
