Title: 2009 - New shows
Post by: c-lando on January 22, 2009, 03:45:41 PM
So, there seem to be a lot of new shows rolling out now. Did anyone record LIE TO ME last night (I know we were all too busy watching LOST to watch it in real time)? I recorded it and can't wait to see Tim Roth on freakin' network TV.

I know that a few ladies here are DYING to see the new Nathan Fillion show, though it does look dumb.

Anything else out there?

I have my EW sitting out to start this thread. My thoughts (not that I need more TV)

Dollhouse - While not a big Eliza Dushku fan, I have enjoyed the other shows by Joss Whedon. So I'll be checking it out. (Fox, debuts 2/13)

Cupid - I loved the original, so I'm cautious about it being remade - especially without Jeremy Piven. (ABC, debuts 3/24)

Sit Down, Shut Up - Bringing back together Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, and Henry Winkler, even in carton form, is intriguing. (Fox, debuts 4/19)

Castle - The previously mentioned Nathan Fillion show. (ABC, debuts 3/9)

Lie to Me was "House" meets "Monk" meets "CSi"

Without Roth it would be nothing. With Roth it nudges above average. The first episode of any new show is always 'dodgy' - the premise being set up, the characters etc., so I'll reserve full judgement until Epi 2

Lando still watches TV shows in real time?

Don't forget "Trust Me" (TNT, debuts 1/26) with Tom Cavanagh and Eric McCormack

Has anyone checked out "The Beast"? 

I hope "Lie to Me" gets better, but it is SO refreshing to see Tim Roth.  Period.  One thing though...in the previews the way they kept cutting back and forth to him reminded me of some character actor that always plays a Russian or Czech mobster.  It took me a few times before it dawned on me that was Roth!  Do they not realize he alone sells the show (or did I miss spots that mentioned him by name)?

I do. Mostly because there is so much crap waiting for me on the TIVO that I'm better off watching some stuff live and not recording it. Well, it does START to record, but if I'm there to watch it, I'll cancel the recording or delete it immediately.

I'm starting to worry about my big screen heartthrobs taking on TV roles.

I mean really - Timothy Hutton ought to be pure gold in Leverage, but the show just isn't clever enough. Hutton's good, but I think the show is lame.

Then I hear that Tim Roth is a scientist tackling criminal and private investigations in Lie To Me. I <3 Tim Roth, but the fact that the show is on Fox scares me. After seeing the first episode I really don't think this show is going to last. Honestly I felt as though he was just going through the motions and the premise just doesn't seem like something that can carry a series. Still, it's nice to be able to figure out the ending before the show is half over. I'll give it another couple of episodes before it is resigned to the rubbish heap.

Oh Tim Roth, you were so wonderful in Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. What the hell has happened to you?!

Who's next, Edward Norton!? (I'm going to forgive The Incredible Hulk)

Sorry about all the caps, folks.  I love, love, love this show.  It's the second ep, and we're dealing with Grandma Saracen further declining, Tami's got lots of stuff going on (New job), and Riggins is going to hell in a handbasket.  And Smash has a storyline.

Loving the new LOST so far, I think, til they fuck themselves over again, kinda like Heroes in that regard.  Course I am stuck watching it not in real-time as that is pub trivia night so I spend all day Thursday threatening to stab people if they spoil anything.  It's a trade-off I can live with.

Super-psyched for Dollhouse.

Semi-psyched for Castle, though it does sound hella tarded.

We - unfortunately - watched the debut episode of MTV's "Taking the Stage" this past weekend. This is Nick Lachey's project centred around a bunch of wannabe 'stars' from Cincinnati's School of Performing Arts.

"Gimme time, I'll forget the rest"

It was something that rhymed with "fame"

Yeah, I watched this on MTV.com and it's terribly lame.

I'd give the show it's due if it didn't seem like it A) was heavily scripted and edited and B) had people on it that you could actually care about / get involved in.

If the show were more like, say, The Real World (edited "reality") vs. The Hills (scripted situation "reality"), then I might give it more than one look-see. As it stands, it is pretty much uninteresting tripe.

I talked to someone today who went to SCPA and they said that the most of the show is apparently being filmed on Saturdays (I assume so it doesn't disrupt the other students too much).  So from that, you can probably take a stab at exactly how scripted it is...

Haven't seen the show, but I do really like/appreciate how Nick Lachey is supportive of his hometown.  So many other famous people try to make themselves appear like they sprang fully-formed in hollywood.


And in other news, anyone watching Castle?  It's got Nathan Fillion goodness all over it!  It's fun and lightweight, and I'm enjoying it so far.

Since they've run through all the previously made episodes of The IT Crowd, IFC is now airing another UK import, Modern Toss, on Tuesday nights (or Wednesday?  Can't remember offhand). 

This is one of the most bizarre shows I have ever seen.  I almost turned it off after 2 minutes last week, but I stuck with it.  Look it up on wikipedia if you have time and just read the description on some of the recurring characters... it's vulgar for the sake of it a bit too often for my tastes... but I think I'm going to give it at least another week.

Dear ABC - Thank you for pulling something as worthy as "Pushing Daisies" from your schedules and placing something as utterly forced, bland and shit as "The Unusuals" in its place. Because, yes, whilst you can do quirky the RIGHT way, you obviously prefer to do it the fucking obvious - and subsequently uninteresting - way instead.

8 thumbs up.  It's almost worth it for the Veridian Dynamics ad in each episode alone.

Sadly, it probably won't make it to next season.

Premise is vaguely reminiscent of an 80s show called Friday the 13th where cousins have to track down occult items from their uncle's antique shop. Loved that show. Anyway, the presence of CCH Pounder ensures I'll at least take a look.
Title: Re: 2009 - New shows
Post by: dirk on July 11, 2009, 08:34:21 AM
That was my thought exactly when I heard about the show.  I watched it last night, and it wasn't bad.  Not good enough to add it to my DVR record list, but I'll give it a few more episodes before I make a final decision.  I think they really need to decide about the objects having magic power or not though.  In the first ep, they are trying to explain that the combs somehow works through a reaction with the metals and the skin, and then it suddenly has magic power to entrance a crowd.  I'm okay with magic, but they need to decide that is what is going on and stick with it.

And CCH Pounder was a mystery to me.  I watched it and she seemed familiar, but I didn't know where.  I kept thinking she would be the perfect Amanda Waller if DC every did a live action with her, and when I looked her up, she was the voice of Amanda Waller in the Justice League cartoons.

Wow.  My wife has been sick with a sinus infection, so she's been hanging out watching TV in bed.

Her synopsis of the weekend went as follows:

She hates laying in bed with nothing to do but be sick.
Random complaints and one specific one about not being able to vacuum out her sinuses with some home sinus tool.
There was some pilot for a show called Warehouse 13 on and she thought it was done very well.
Sci-Fi is now MDTV (mentally deficient television) in her eyes for succumbing to the dumbing down of America by going to SyFy
Sadly, since it showed so much promise it will either peter out after 4 episodes or be almost immediately canceled.

Luv the words of wisdom from the ailing Mrs. Poncho (hope she's feeling better.)  I thought the show stood out, too.  The female/male leads' interaction isn't fully by the book and I think the guy that plays Artie is a good character actor - this role is perfect for him.

Can't remember the "Friday the 13th" show you mentioned, Wherle.

This week I'm happily looking forward to the premiere of "Dark Blue" with Dylan McDermott.

I agree, CR, Warehouse 13 is a winner.  I read that it is breaking viewership records for the network so I can't imagine they'd cancel.  Dark Blue, on the otherhand, isn't bad but not all that interesting either.  In all honesty I don't see that Dylan M has all that great of a role.

I'll definitely be watching Community again. Joel McHale CAN carry a TV show. I was unsure since I really almost despise him whenever he's a guest on any talk show but adore him on The Soup. So, I wasn't sure which McHale I would get in this new comedy. Luckily, it's the one I adore. Fun cast. I can see this being a favorite this year. HOLY CRAP that chick from MAD MEN looks different when she's not in her 60s garb.

It was the chick that played Roger Sterling's mistress/wife wasn't it?  I didn't even put two and two together until just now.

Vizz, you really think Peggy's that bad?  She doesn't give me palpitations or anything but I don't think she's hideous either.  I'll give you that her look on the show is certainly doing nothing for her, she was far easier to look at when she played Bartlet's daughter on West Wing.

I've never seen her in motion... but just from a quick set of imdb pictures... she's "meh" and "whatever" but she doesn't look vomit worthy.  I see it a lot more like Kwyjibo.

Looks like this girl:
(http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f218/SteveFrame/AlisonBrie.jpg)
is the one that is on both shows (or was... I don't know if she's still on Mad Men?) and she reminds me of a young Courtney Cox with better hair.

Really? I think it's a good show. Not earth-shattering but not a waste of DVR space when NCAAF isn't delivering a good Saturday game.

I agree that Elizabeth Moss from Mad Men is U-G-L-Y. Not attractive at all. Especially on a show that has Christina Hendricks, January Jones, and the cute, gullible gal from the Twix commercials (the one who likes to blog) as Don's mistress.

Anyone enjoying Bored to Death? It's a solid HBO comedy.

V = crapfest.

They blew their load in the first episode. How about a little intrigue and plotting.

Edward Norton on Modern Family as the bass player from Spandau Ballet. It's awesome.

ABC has a new show on finding missing/"long lost" family members (Find My Family is the name). It's made me cry three times already- it's like Home Makeover, but even more schmaltzy and overdone, and I will totally be watching it all the time.

"Steven Seagal - Lawman"?

More like "Steven Seagal - Zen Tosser"

Well, this is technical an old new show, but I finally tried to watch the last episode of V that aired, and I didn't even make it half way through before I turned it off.  It's not bad per say, but I just don't care.  They shot their load in the first episode, and everything since then has just been dull.  Well, that's one more I can remove from the DVR.
