    Got a few shows I've recorded the entire season(so far) of and I'm not sure if they are worth watching. What is your advice?

    My Name is Earl (has it jumped the shark, I'm thinking about deleting it)
    Californication
    Tell Me You Love Me
    Journeyman
    Chuck
    Rescue Me (same as Earl above. Not sure if it's worth it any more)


    If any of these are truly duds, I'll save my time, if any are super great, I'll put them to the front of the line.

    Thanks!

    IMHO, My Name Is Earl hasn't even gone down to beach yet, the best half hour of network television.

    I would like to know whether Chuck is worth a look also.

    IMO Chuck is like Alias with a less serious tone. I'm still watching so far.

    Earl - great, funny stuff
    Californication - hysterical, offbeat, and perverse
    Tell Me You Love Me - couldn't get thru the premiere
    Journeyman - interesting, see if it's for you
    Chuck - lighthearted, fun, turn-your-brain-off enjoyment
    Rescue Me - the weakest of the 4 seasons, but if you've watched the previous 3, it's worth continuing

    Definitely watch Earl and Chuck.

    However, do not try to envision Earl and Chuck together. Ew. Can I un-envision that?

    Now, Joy and Catalina and Sarah and Ellie together... that I could get behind. Oh, yass. :D

    Can't go wrong with just keeping Earl, and watching it when ya have time. Thats what I do will all my 30 minute comedys. I guess you like "Rescue Me" or ya wouldn't have recorded season 4 is it? so ya answered that yourself. ( tho like previous poster, this season really went nowhere).
    Since we don't know your taste in shows can't answer the rest.

    Billy, Chuck is pretty good and I think you'd enjoy it.

    Reaper is not on your list, but I think the same thing about that.

    Chuck as an hour show is good, Chuck as a 30 minute show would be great.

    Thanks everyone. I feel derelict being behind so much at the start of a season.

    I miss getting Entertainment Weekly, I have never even heard of Californication.

    ETA: Ah, it's on Showtime, that might be why as well. :)

    Don't waste your time on Californication (Duchovny is awful in it) or Chuck (just not up to snuff). Journeyman is worth a try. I haven't watched the others. Oh yeah, and Earl is definitely worth your time. :)

    The 'verse
    Rescue Me - Don't even bother. If you liked it even just a little bit before, you'll feel trapped and obligated to watch the whole season even though you decide that it's crap by episode 3.
    Get out while the getting is good.

    My Name is Earl - Earl has always been background fodder for me, but I would keep it around for those times when you don't want to pay too much attention.

    Californication - PFFT. Showtime proving they are always worse than HBO, even when HBO is not that good anymore.

    Tell Me You Love Me - See Above. This show proves HBO has fallen very far.

    Journeyman - I tried to watch the first episode.. deleted the second one.

    Chuck - Chuck Chuck. Not funny.

    Rescue Me - Has gotten a bit bizarre, but I think this last season is better than the previous year. With so much new stuff on might be hard to squeeze in, but I would save it for the time you realize most of these other shows suck and you need something to watch.

    Just watched the first episode of Journeyman on Bravo, will try to get caught up with the rest.

    In brief, remember those rumors that Quantum Leap was making a return? Well it appears to me that Journeyman is just that, although this time without the science aspect.
