TV season in progress, 2010-2011

As we are several months in to the current TV season, it felt like a good time for a brief recap.
This has kinda been a slow season so far and we’ve watched more shows on Netflix to fill our evenings.

2 shows on my list were already cancelled: Undercovers, which I had high hopes for but they lost me by the 2nd ep; The Whole Truth, and I hung onto it for more eps than I should have because I enjoyed happy-Rob Morrow.  (for ratings and cancellation info, I read tvbythenumbers and

I really tried to get into No Ordinary Family, but by ep 3, it was too much family drama instead of super-y stuff. I gave up on Chase before it started and we never started back in on The Office.

But I did give Glee (FOX, Tuesday) a chance when I wasn’t planning on it, thanks to several friends encouraging me that I should be able to jump in even w/o watching season 1.

As for new shows, The Event (NBC, Monday) has definitely kept me interested. It’s not bounce-up-and-down excitement like I had for Heroes the first few seasons, but still quite good. Hawaii Five-O (CBS, Monday) was one I started to enjoy first ep and then set it aside – I did a marathon last week and caught up, and I’m really enjoying it.

Our only half hour show is Running Wilde (FOX, Tuesday), and that really has been funny. Ratings are low, tho, so it’s hanging on my a string and that’s too bad.

When it comes to returning shows, Castle (ABC, Monday) is my fav this year so far. They’ve done a great job keeping it good even with Castle having a girlfriend. On the other hand, Bones (FOX, Thursday) has gotten stale for this same reason (Booth having a girlfriend), and the cases are keeping my interest as much. House (FOX, Monday) surprised me because I wasn’t thinking I’d enjoy the new relationship on the show but they handled it better than expected. Chuck (NBC, Monday) is better to me when watching in a chunk of eps, so I waited till I had a nice pile – still 2 eps behind right now, they’ve certainly had the array of guest stars!

Human Target got bumped till Nov 17 and V isn’t until January, so I have no input on them yet!

On Netflix, we’ve just finished the whole series of Alias. We are watching Big Bang Theory from last season while we eat dinner downstairs (and taping the current series). The same taping idea for Fringe, we’ll be watching season two next now that we are done with Alias. The Vampire Diaries first season is high on my queue for after Fringe.

I had higher hopes for this season, but I am happy that a few shows are still keeping me excited to turn on the TiVo 🙂
