Favorite TV Returns This Week...

My inner FanGirl is definitely sqeee’ing this week because all (most) my fav TV shows are returning this week, after a very loooooong summer. There were a few shows that kept me going until this week—“Haven”, “Eureka”, “Sherlock” (BBC), “Rubicon”, “Lie to Me”, “Warehouse 13”, “The Closer”, “True Blood”,—with Honorable Mentions going to “Mad Men”, “Leverage”, “Man vS. Food”, “Hoarders” (HaHaHa!), “The Gates”, “White Collar”, “Weeds”, and “The Big C”.

I think the shows that I’m most excited to see are “Fringe” and “Supernatural”. I liked last season of “Supernatural” with the addition of the Angels into the mix because there aren’t a lot of series that show the other side of Angels as vengeful tools of God. I hold a special affection for that show because most of Sam and Dean’s cappers happen in the Midwest (which is where I live) and the license plate on the Impala is always an Ohio plate. (I lived in Cincinnati for the majority of my 20’s and consider it the place that I “grew up”.)

I’m also excited to watch everyone’s favorites—“The Office”, “30 Rock”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Chuck”, “Castle”, “CSI LV & NY”, “Bones”, and “Glee”. I watched the premiere of "Boardwalk Empire" on HBO the other night, and feel that it’s going to be good. I can usually judge whether or not something is going to make it within the first two episodes, and "Boardwalk" had me on the first episode. I watch the premiere of “The Event” last night, and it reminded me a lot of “Lost”, which is unfortunate because I stopped watching that show after the third season. I know that a lot of you loved it and were totally obsessed with it—like one of my brothers—but I just felt that the last two seasons were too farfetched, and kind of pretentious.

Aside from counting down the days for “Doctor Who’s Christmas Special” and the beginning of that show in the Spring, what are some of the shows that you are waiting on pins and needles to return/watch the premiere?



  1. OMG--how could I have forgotten about "How I Met Your Mother", "The Big Bang Theory", and "Vampire Diaries"???!! So much TV.......so little time....

  2. UGH so true, not enough time!! Last nights Castle was amazing (of course) couldn't believe I nearly missed Chuck and cannot wait for:
    Doctor Who
    South Park

    I'm catching up on "Rubicon" which I'm enjoying so far. "Haven" has been fun. Sad to see "Warehouse 13" & "Eureka" ending for the season. I have the first episode of "Boardwalk Empire" waiting for me.

    Ok I need to stop and get back to work - I could go on forever!

  3. I am also srsly looking forward to the Doctor Who Christmas Special. While I do like Matt Smith, sadly no one can take the place of David Tennant.

    Also a TV show that I love is "Sons of Anarchy" with Ron Perlman and Katey Segall. It's amazing.


  4. I'm super sad b/c Haven is not doing great with the ratings and needs to do better in order to be renewed. Everyone, pimp that sh*t :)

  5. Metalocalypse--Dethklock--YESSSS!

    I thought I heard that Haven got picked up.........? False? That show is awesome!
