Perhaps I am alone in my feelings, but on the verge of a brand new television season, I am more concerned than ever that I am going to be underwhelmed and overly disappointed. I, like many people here, are huge fans of television. I have for years always eagerly anticipated the new television season. Before the advent of the internet, reading magazines and newspapers to get the scoop on the upcoming shows was a must have. Now in 2007 we have all that, plus a ridiculous amount of information on the internet, and even now we have pre-release versions of many shows available. So where does my fear come from? It seems like my eagerness for the new tv season has eroded more every year, to where it has gotten to be almost a negative feeling. Where once I was excited about all the new content I could check out and hopefully find some new shows to enjoy, I am instead sure that most shows will suck, and those that don't suck will likely be canceled. One would think with this attitude I would be off television. That is not the case though. With the expansion of cable/satellite, there are new tv shows coming on all year long. So I don't need the fall season anymore. The cable channels are MUCH more likely to actually air a show they hype up and promote to me, so I feel much less like I am wasting my time. Even if it only lasts a season or two, you can count on it staying, most of the time. Certainly there are exceptions, but on the networks, most new shows don't make it through their initial orders, it seems. To get to this season specifically, I have seen several early episodes via leaks and previews, and have been fairly disappointed in them all. Beyond that the slate of shows and their descriptions simply leave me entirely lacking. I did not think I would like Heroes last summer, though, and I really enjoyed it. Problem is this was the only show I can remember that was introduced last year that I care about watching this year. The year before that Criminal Minds was the only new show I can recall having the least bit of interest. So with my recent history, I will be lucky if I find a single show that I both enjoy and that gets renewed for the next season. I wish I could get that eagerness and anticipation back where I could be excited to see the first episode of "Best of the West". Now I assume everything will suck, and it is hard for me to muster even a little bit of interest. I can't remember having such a poor response to the blurbs and descriptions to an entire fall lineup. Am I doomed by my pessimism to never enjoy another Fall TV Season again?
