Actually, what I meant to say is “The new TV shows are here!” but any time a thought along that line comes to mind, I always remember Steve Martin in some old movie shouting, “The new phone books are here!”
I don’t mind reruns of shows I like, but it’s always kind of a relief to see the fall season start. I haven’t caught many shows so far because I’ve been writing like mad, making visits to the ER (both the two-legged and the four-legged kind) and hanging out with my mom while she recuperates from a couple falls, but I did catch a couple.
I love “Criminal Minds.” Wish Hotch would smile once in a while (anyone remember him as Greg on “Dharma and Greg”? He was so much more human in that role!) Love Morgan, and Garcia retains her role as coolest character on TV.
Missed “NCIS” and “NCIS: LA.” (I still snicker — practically the only major city in the US that doesn’t have some sort of Navy presence.) I also missed “Law & Order: SVU,” and the first half of “Ghost Whisperer.” Where the heck did Melinda and Jim get that six-year-old kid who calls them Mom and Dad???
I’m not a huge fan of “Medium,” but I absolutely adore David Cubitt, who plays the detective, so I try to watch it just for him. Love his voice!
And “Numbers” . . . between Charlie, Don, David and Colby, how could a woman not love it? I thought it was funny that some of the promos tried to play up the suspense of whether Amita would accept Charlie’s proposal. Duh! He’s the sexiest geek on TV. Of course she did!
What shows are you watching/waiting for? Anything new I should give a shot?
