This week is the kick off of the majority of the season’s new TV shows. Do you have a favorite? Or do you look for a totally new show that you’re hoping will be the next best thing since sliced bread because everything that’s on right now simply bores the heck out of you? Do you find yourself shutting down your WIP in order to watch the shows?
I have to admit, I have several shows that I follow. Monday night I watched the openers for Bones, Mike & Molly and Castle. They were great! No, I won’t tell what happened. Don’t want to spoil them for anyone if you didn’t get to watch. I’ll just say I wasn’t disappointed. Tonight, I’m looking forward to NCIS. I figure one of the main characters had to die at last season’s finale and I’m anxious to find out who it was. Whoever it is, I know I’ll be upset because I like all the characters.
Other shows I like are The Mentalist, , The Big Bang Theory, Grimm and Blue Bloods. Yes, I realize that’s at least one show for almost every night of the week. I probably shouldn’t watch so much TV, but I’m already hooked so there’s no hope for me. *sigh*
Tell me, while you’re watching your favorite show, do you critique it as it goes along? What attracts you to the shows you enjoy watching? Is it the characters, the plot, the writing/storyline or the actors? If you were the head writer, what would you do with the show? Anything? Or do you see a show that is so-so right now that you’d love to get your creative little hands on so you could make it shine? You can’t tell me you’ve never thought of doing that because I’m almost willing to bet money you have. 😉
Fess up. What draws you to the one-eyed monster that eats up so much of our writing time?
