TV Round Up

So much tv, so little time. I am not one of those people who doesn't watch television. I watch it and love it, especially during new fall line up. So what did I watch in the past week?

Two and a Half Men- I admit I am little more than a gawker here. I didn't really watch the old one except in reruns, but I was curious how they were going to get rid of Charlie. Parts of it were funny and it might be able to pull it off without him, but I personally think they lost a lot of the charm the show had before. I probably will not be returning to it.
2 Broke Girls- This made me laugh several times, especially love the part when they were talking about her boyfriend abs as making smart girls stupid. I will definitely be DVRing this one.
Castle- I love Castle. When it first came out I didn't want to watch it because it was another cop show, but I am glad I did. It is such a good show and I love that Castle is 1. Nathan Fillion and 2. a writer. The premiere this season was so good. It picked up nearly where it left off last season with Beckett getting shot. I was really curious through the first ten minutes or so what they were doing with Castle and Beckett, but by the end of the episode I was once again happily enthralled. 

The Ringer: I watched two episodes of this this week because I never watched the one I DVRed from the previous week. Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to play twins. I wasn't sure about it after the first episode, but the second one pulled me in more. It already promises a lot of twists and turns and I am curious where it is going to go.
Unforgettable: This is another cop show (I know, I know) with Dylan Walsh (Nip/Tuck) and Poppy Montgomery (Without a Trace). It was okay. I don't know if it will pick up a coveted DVR position. It is about a former detective and current gambler who seems to have perfect recall. It reminds me a bit of that older show the Profiler (which I loved) except without the extreme crimes and intensity. Anyway something happened in her past which she cannot recall that haunts her. She teams up with her ex-boyfriend and cop Dylan Walsh to solve the murder of one of her neighbors. I will watch it a second time, but I am on the fence.

Up All Night- Will Arnett (Arrested Development <3) and Christina Applegate lead this sitcom about two new parents dealing with a baby, work, and each other. Parts were funny, but I didn't connect. Maybe because I don't have kids. I wanted to like it so much too. Sigh. I will give it another chance. 
Modern Family- The premiere might have been my favorite Modern Family show ever. It was hilarious beginning to end. Could this cast be anymore perfect? Seriously, love it.
Criminal Minds- This was an interesting episode that brought back what we lost last season. I am glad they wrapped up that story line. I honestly watch Criminal Minds for the serial killers so I would like to get back to that.

The Mentalist- I actually watched this last night. It was a good episode and Jane is hard not to love. The end disappointed me slightly, but not enough to make me not want to watch his shenanigans.
Prime Suspect- I have been very interested in this BBC remake. I didn't mind the first episode, but I haven't set up a season pass yet (probably will this week). I like Maria Bello. I like that she wasn't a super woman. She gets her ass kicked, no one wants her to be there and it hurts her, and her love life isn't perfect. I am interested because it seems more real than most of what is on tv.

Haven: *This will contain spoilers* Squee! I love Haven, especially Nathan and Audrey. I am so happy they finally refer to their feelings (they didn't actually talk about it but that's okay) and they finally kiss. With the Rev gone and tensions getting tighter it is only a matter of time before the wire snaps. The episode make serious headway into the confusing life of Audrey and into Duke's back story as well. I can't wait for the finale this week but at the same time I have the sneaking suspicion they will cliffhanger me and I HATE that. 

What I missed-
A Gifted Man: Really wanted to see this one too. Must check On Demand.
The New Girl
Person of Interest
Supernatural: Never fear though, I have this one recorded. The only reason I didn't watch it is because I wanted to watch the finale from last season before I watched the new episode, but haven't had time. I will definitely catch up before this Friday. P.S. I miss Supernatural being on Thursday.

That's what I have so far. What have I missed? What did you watch that I should check out?

You've got to see New Girl, while I love many other sitcoms that are on right now, that one tops them all. I've been following Ringer too but I can't find anyone else who's into it as much as me.. and the reviews aren't looking too good already so I'm kinda bumed about that.
When does Havon come on? I never watched it until it was on at like midnight on the Sci-fy channel the other day. But I don't know it's normal time. As for 2 Broke Girls, I thought it looked dumb so I began looking through to see what else was on and just as I was about to turn to my soaps it got hilarious!

I know! I will watch the New Girl and report back! I hope the Ringer isn't canceled before they tell us what's going on.

Haven is on Fridays at 9 central. It is really good, sort of like a cross between X-Files and Twin Peaks. This is only the second season so it would be super easy to catch up.

I did a TV Post today and then hopped over here and saw this. We should do a joint post sometime since we both seem like TV freaks. I love Haven! And Supernatural is so awesome I don't care what anyone says.

Oh my gosh, we totally should! I am a definitely a TV freak.
I finally watched Supernatural last night and I loved the premiere. I am actually excited to see Misha break the Castiel mold. I am also worried about Dean and his drinking. I can't wait for Grimm, Once Upon a Time, American Horror, and Walking Dead to start.

Both Ringer & Person of Interest definitely drew me in from episode 1. They have earned their spots on my "Must Watch" roster. The same goes for 2 Broke Girls.

BTW: I consider Archer one of the funniest shows on tv. It's hard to get people to give it a chance since it's animated. Most people won't watch an animated comedy anymore unless Seth MacFarlane is involved.

Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?

I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers
