    After the first week of new shows, which ones are your favorites? I think Journeyman and Life have potential to be really promising.

    I haven't watched many. I'm waiting to see which ones make it. I enjoyed Reaper, Pushing Daisies and Aliens in America.

    Reaper. Maybe Chuck (wife liked Chuck better than Reaper, I'm the reverse). I enjoyed Bionic Woman too. If I had to pick one I think it would be Reaper as long as they can keep the writing and directing up. Otherwise there really isn't much deep plot to fall back on.

    Those are the three new shows that I've watched so far. I'm still waiting on Pushing Daisies, and Women's Murder Club.

    Still too early. Lots of good shows, most posted above. I'm not really at a favorite yet, gotta see about 4-5 episodes for that.

    Reaper and Chuck, so far. Also liked Life and Gossip Girl. Jury still out on Bionic Woman and Private Practice.

    Waiting for Pushing Daisies to premiere next Thursday.

    I was kind of surprised to see a thread on this already. I just figured a good number of people on here would be recording and watching later to see if the show gets canned and watching would just be a waste of time. OK, so maybe not most people (?), but that's definitely how I'm dealing with the new season. Too many times in the last few years I've watched a new show, liked it, and it's canned in under a half-dozen episodes. Burn me once, shame on me. Burn me twice, shame on me again. Burn me three times... well, you get the idea. Anyone remember Threshhold? Drive?

    I'll wait a few weeks on the new stuff and give my attention now to NCIS, The Unit, Driminal Minds, etc.

    Wow. This is amazing. Seen a lot of the ones mentioned so far, and nothing rates better than a "meh".

    The winner is: Back to You.

    I've missed Kelsey Grammer, the man's a brilliant comedic actor. This was the first show in years that I was literally in tears I was laughing so hard. And Heaton is pretty good too.

    And the writing is good, too--it's not just Grammer and Heaton.
    That little puff of smoke when the halogen lamp killed the fish for the nth time really got me somehow. I rewound and watched it a few times.....

    Loved:
    Reaper!!!!!

    (Expect/Hope to Love: Pushing Daisies)

    Liked:
    Back to You
    Big Bang Theory
    Gossip Girl
    Kid Nation (unexpectedly - I tuned in expecting a trainwreck)

    Entertaining, but didn't live up to the hype (still giving them a chance):
    Bionic Woman
    Chuck

    Not even close to as good as the BBC Version, but I loves me some Gordon Ramsay anyway:
    Kitchen Nightmares

    Lastly, it's not network or prime time, but I'm not ashamed to admit my new "guilty pleasure" show is:
    TMZ

    There have been no new series that I've been excited about this season. The best is a "meh" for Chuck and Reaper.

    Granted, I haven't seen Journeyman yet, it's still sitting on my DVR, and I'm hoping to like it... but the fact that it's been sitting there since Monday and I still haven't really felt like watching it is probably a bad sign.

    The jury is still out on Bionic Woman. I'm hoping it was just a bad first episode, since it was really just the pilot slightly re-edited, and that the future episodes will be better.

    I wanted to like Pushing Daisies and Moonlight. Pushing Daisies turned out to be trying too hard to be quirky for my tastes, and Moonlight was just plain rotten.

    Nothing that blew me away so far...

    Really liked:

    Journeyman - Was worried that it would just a rip off of Quantum leap....but even though it shares some similarities, depending on the writing, this could be a great show

    Dirty Sexy Money - Yeah, a little over the top, and a bit of a soap opera, but Peter Krause is a decent actor (loved him in Sports Night), and the surrounding cast is pretty good. This may be more of a guilty pleasure type of show.

    Liked:
    Back to You - Not the greatest sitcom, and nothing award winning, but a nice 1/2 hour diversion.....I predict about 3 seasons for this one.....definitely not in the "Everybody loves Raymond", "Frasier" or "Cheers" category.

    Recorded, but still haven't watched:
    Big Bang Theory
    Bionic Woman
    Chuck
    Big Shots

    You'll miss it then! It's on Wednesday!!!


    As for the topic, nothing's wowed me yet. We'll see what PD can do and I'll keep an eye on the Brits (Bionic Woman and Journeyman), but that's it so far. Of course, my DVR still has stuff I haven't watched yet.

    So far Reaper gets my favorite spot.

    I liked Chuck, Big Shots, and Dirty Sexy Money. Fence sitting a bit on Bionic Woman.

    High hopes for Pushing Daisies.
