Worst show on tv right now – The Cape

February 2, 2011 at 12:45 pm (babbling, Entertainment, TV) (, , , , , )

First off a quick kudos to Chuck this week.  It was a fabulous episode that reclaimed its former glory. I’m glad that only Human Target was new on Monday night so that we also tuned in. It was funny and heartfelt and beautifully crafted.

Now onto the purpose of this post – The Cape.  It was seriously the worst thing I’ve tuned into in a long time. I’d put it up there in the ranks of M. Night’s recent failures.  I wanted to like it, I really did.

Who do I blame??

  1. Summer Glau seems to have the kiss of death when it comes to television shows (Firefly, Dollhouse, Sarah Conner Chronicles), but her role doesn’t seem nearly big enough to be the cause.
  2. NBC cut the order from 13 to 10 episodes, meaning they see there’s a problem.  But is the show a problem because they futzed with it too much??
  3. Perhaps that the whole premise of the show is based around a bad CGI effect:  the cape itself?
  4. The creator & writer Tom Wheeler doesn’t seem to have a lot of fantasy, comic book writing experience. It is a unique genre that perhaps he just doesn’t grasp fully.  Perhaps he needs to hire more experienced writers: Jane Espenson perhaps? I think she’s smart enough not to touch this with a 10 foot pole though.
  5. Lead actor David Lyons could be to blame, perhaps he isn’t a strong enough actor to carry the lead role.

I think it’s just a perfect storm of bad choices that have led to this show being awful, so don’t waste your time. You will regret it!

First New Shows Fall 2010

September 23, 2010 at 2:47 pm (babbling, Entertainment, TV) (, , , , , , , , , )

In no particular order, here’s what I’ve viewed so far…

Chuck: Such great start to the new season!! It’s too bad NBC didn’t move it to Wednesday nights when NOTHING else is on instead of keeping it against big shows like House & Dancing with the Stars.  I’m still watching it live, but I’m afraid NBC is going to cancel it before giving it a better slot/chance.

The Event: It was a very interesting premiere and I see potential in it. I think it’s going to take a couple weeks to get me totally excited about this show.  Solid acting, and straight forward story but I didn’t really like the time-line jumps.  They didn’t add anything for me.  I’m still scared that this one will follow in Flash Forward’s footsteps and get canceled right as it’s getting REALLY good.

Hawaii 5-0:  I was quite surprised, but i really liked it.  Good cast, good action, beautiful b-roll. Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan played off of each other great! Grace Park was sadly the weakest link, but I’m sure she will step it up a notch in coming episodes.

Parenthood:  It started a week early before most of the major shows had started.  A little too much yelling/arguing for me, but I’m curious to see where they take it this season. I will give it a few more episodes to pick up.  The best moments/acting came from the stay-at-home dad character played by Sam Jaeger. It was also a nice surprise to see another Dirty, Sexy, Money actor join the ranks: Billy Baldwin.

Running Wilde:  I wanted to like this show, I really did. I got about 15 minutes into it and had to delete it.  It just grated on my nerves.  It was just too slow, not funny enough, and too cheesy. The flashbacks and voice over were annoying.

How I Met Your Mother:  It’s a totally solid show and it’s still holding it’s own with so many other comedy choices out there right now.  Neil Patrick Harris cracks me up.  The whole cast has excellent chemistry that keeps me tuning in week after week to see what hi-jinx will happen next. I don’t even care who Ted ends up marrying.

Glee:  I watch this show for water-cooler buzz now. I really dislike all the auto-tuned, overly produced singing. I really liked the time they all sang in the music room raw. That being said, they picked some really fun songs this week and I didn’t hate them. There are also a few story elements that really bug me…especially that there’s not a female character to root for. They are all villains. This season started off making Rachel an even BIGGER villain. I don’t mind flaws, but this show just can’t give me a female character to root for.  There have been moments that I’ve loved though:  every moment with Kurt & his dad Burt, and Artie’s dance for example.  So, I had fun watching the premiere. It didn’t make me excessively angry (as episodes have in the past). I have hope for the series.

Terriers:  This is an FX series that I caught this on hulu. It’s about two private investigators. For some reason I thought it would be more funny, or at least more sarcastic, however it was edited fairly slow and it wasn’t very funny. I won’t be watching this one again.

Castle: Solid as always. Nathan Fillion is hilarious and for some reason I feel like this character is close to his actual personality in real life. (although I have no idea if I’m right or not)   Stana Katic is a strong lead.  Her character is both ballsy and tough with enough humanity to make her feel relatable.

Still in my DVR awaiting viewing:  Hell’s Kitchen, Raising Hope, Modern Family and tonight Grey’s Anatomy, Big Bang Theory, Bones and Fringe. I decided to skip Chase.

I hear people are LOVING Boardwalk Empire, but I don’t have HBO. I will have to wait for the dvds.

Is there anything you saw, that I missed and should catch up on?

Any thoughts on the new Nikita? Lonestar? Outsourced? Or this sesason of Hell’s Kitchen?? Survivor? House?

Fall TV 2010

August 27, 2010 at 4:50 pm (babbling, Entertainment, Family, TV) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This year the blog TV By the Numbers has all your tv show premiere dates, so I recommend going there to make sure your DVR doesn’t miss anything good.  It’s good because with an 8-month old, I honestly doubt I would have the time to do it myself.

This is a list of all the new shows, what they are and what I’ll be watching or avoiding.

CW has the least amount of new shows this fall.

Hellcats – in the spirit of the movie “Bring It On” comes a cheer leading tv show.  I’m not sure if this is 10 years too late, or it will find a following.  It seems to be a High School drama in the style of 90210. I think this would pair better with Gossip Girl than the ANTM crowd.

Nikita (new remake of the already overplayed La Femme Nikita) – I like strong female characters, but PASS! It’s been done.


Lonestar – Night time soap opera drama set in Texas shows us a man living two lives.  It could be interesting, but I think I’m going to pass unless the buzz is great.

Running Wilde – Felicity star Keri Russell teams up with comedian Will Arnett to show us if a playboy really can win the heart of a humanitarian.  The promos are funny, but Tuesday night seems to be a rough time slot. (Glee for the music/young crowd, NCIS for the men, Biggest Loser & Dancing with the Stars for the reality junkies.)

Raising Hope – Raising Hope will be following Running Wilde on Tuesday nights. It is about a 23 year old male who has to raise a child. It seems cute enough. I think I might give it a try, I’ve never been into Biggest Loser or Dancing with the Stars.


Outlaw – It’s another lawyer show folks.  Decent cast, but /yawn/ ANOTHER lawyer show.

The Event – Sadly while I’m curious about this new tv show, it has Flash Forward’s doom written all over it.  It’s a conspiracy thriller starring a well-seasoned cast including Blair Underwood, Jason Ritter and Sophia McGuire.  Do we really need to have MORE distrust in the US Government NBC?  I will give this one a chance, although I’m going to be leery out of fear NBC will cancel it before it even gets great.

Chase – It’s a nice and easy plot: various US Marshals hunting down fugitives.  Good promo and time slot. I will tune in…again, cautiously.

Undercovers – What happens when spies retire?? JJ Abrams tells you in this sexy, action tv show.  Sorry JJ, Chuck has my heart and there’s no room for another spy show right now.  I will wait to hear the buzz on this one.

Outsourced – It’s as if “The Office” was outsourced to India.  Comedy, although the promos were more predictable than funny.

Law & Order: Los Angeles – It’s Law & Order this time in Los Angeles…do you really need to know more than that?

School Pride – It’s a reality show where families, celebrity alumni, and communities come together to re-build, re-decorate, renovate their old schools. Not my cup of tea, but I’m sure the Extreme Home Make-over crowd is itching for something like this.


Mike & Molly – A new comedy from the creator of Big Bang Theory about a couple that meets at an Over-Eaters Anonymous Meeting. I have to many issues with food to watch this. /turns on Food Network/

Hawaii 5-0Grace Park from Battlestar in a bikini = nerds everywhere locking their doors.  Will this be the first re-boot in awhile that is done right? Or will it be awful like “Knight Rider?” Someone please watch this and let me know.  I’m too scared to watch Grace fail.

The Defenders – Another legal drama. /yawn/ Still bored networks!! Jim Belushi & Jerry O’Connell defend people.  Maybe they will be funny, maybe eccentric, but right now I don’t care, IT’S BEEN DONE!!!

?#!$ My Dad Says – It’s a show based on a twitter account. Yep seriously, if your twitter is that good, maybe you can get a tv show. Unlikely, but this situation has given slackers hope EVERYWHERE.  But it’s my fellow Canadian William Shatner and he is funny as heck.

Blue Bloods – Here’s more original tv shows from lovely network development – another cop show boys & girls. This time it’s Tom Selleck and a multi-generational NYPD cop family.

ABC wins the WORST website for fall launch tv shows.  Yes it’s easy to read, but it’s super boring and has hardly any content.

Better With You – 3 couples, comedy….hard to tell if it’s new or fresh or different.

The Whole Truth – And another legal drama folks. Blerg. Why do something new when you can try something that worked once?!?  People don’t like lawyers. So why do you think we will like ANOTHER tv show about them?? Does it have William Shatner? No?? PASS!

My Generation – I think this is a drama? Maybe a comedy pretending to be a documentary.  Supposed graduates were followed by a documentary and now 10-years later this is where we find them. This could be trying to grasp onto Community’s success, although this doesn’t nearly have the star power. Pass.

No Ordinary Family – Now this is an interesting twist.  A family goes on vacation, plane crashes and now they have super powers?? Interesting. Michael Chiklis, Julie Benz and Romany Malco – ok, ok, I will hulu it!

Detriot 1-8-7 – Yep you guessed it, another cop drama this time Detroit Homicide! PASS!!!

What I’ll be DVRing: (*s = new)

Monday – 8pm Chuck & How I Met Your Mother  9pm *The Event 10pm *Chase

Tuesday – 8pm NCIS (for my hubby) & Glee (filer show for water cooler talk) 9pm *Raising Hope & *Running Wilde

Wednesday – 8pm Hell’s Kitchen 9pm Modern Family

Thursdays – NETWORKS I HATE YOU, to many choices on one night – GRRR!!! Ok so it will be 8pm Big Bang & Bones (watching via Hulu Community) 9pm Grey’s Anatomy & Fringe

Friday -8pm Human Target 9pm Supernatural

Saturday – nothing

Sunday – 8pm The Amazing Race

Mostly I’m sticking to my old favorites. Is there anything new you are looking forward to??

A few more canned tv shows

November 11, 2009 at 3:54 pm (babbling, Entertainment, TV) (, , )

Dollhouse is canceled by Fox.

Hank is canceled by ABC.

V’s ratings are down a bit, but the DVR numbers won’t be in for a few more days.  This week’s episode was better paced, not quite as break neck. I still think there’s hope for it.

That’s all in big tv news today folks.

Eastwick Canceled & A Note to Veterans

November 10, 2009 at 12:33 pm (babbling, Entertainment, TV) (, , )

First the light stuff:

The Forgotten has a 5 more episode order.  I’m not sure why, maybe because their episodes are very stand-alone and thus can be syndicated easily??

ABC has also opted not to order any more episodes of Eastwick.  A cute, fluffy show, with fairly bad ratings.  So far they will air the rest of the episodes they have already finished.

Now for the serious stuff:

To everyone,

Please make sure you thank military men and women this Veteran’s Day.  Even if you don’t agree with this war, or some other one – they still choose to put their lives in danger for YOU.  They deserve, if anything a all, a simple thank you this Veteran’s Day.


To all Veterans,

A personal thank you for your service.  There are some of us that remember you were and/or are over there fighting, that you saw things we can’t even imagine in our worst nightmares and we appreciate it.  Even if we don’t show it daily and we go about our lives while you fight, secure and enforce.  We know it changes you and we are indebted.

As my husband and I wait for the arrival of our first born son, we reflect on your sacrifice and say thank you.

Forgetting the Forgotten

October 29, 2009 at 4:13 pm (babbling, Entertainment, TV) (, , , , , , , )

I finally managed to watch a couple episodes of The Forgotten and overall didn’t mind the show.  It wasn’t fantastic, but not horribly annoying.  Christian Slater seems to have the touch of death when it comes to new shows though, so I probably won’t waste any more time with it.  It isn’t fairing well with it’s ratings either:  a low 2.0 adults 18-49 rating.

I like that the show is based on a group of volunteers.  It’s also nice to see Bob Stephenson has got another show since Jericho.  He’s really a solid actor.

Overall the show is the same old, same old we see on EVERY other crime drama or missing person show.  Reconstruct the face, even if it’s impossible from the remains, trace their steps – and every time solve the mystery!?! Not exactly realistic.  NETWORKS & WRITERS:  We don’t need to feel good every week, at the end of EVERY episode if we care about the main cast already.

Another issue I had was it’s use voice over as narration.  Desperate Housewives, Pushing Daisies and the new show The Forgotten all do it now.  I think this was the only part of the show that stood out as horrible and un-needed.  Shouldn’t we just got a picture of who the person is from the group? I feel like voice over insults my intelligence as a viewer.  I don’t need hand holding. I can pick up subtle, and maybe someday I will tell you how I ruined the movie “Sixth Sense” for my group of friends from the TEASER TRAILER.   I want you to let me figure things out for myself.  I think I would like this show more if they canned the VO.

My vote:  forget about it.  I don’t think this one has legs to last.

I also watched the first couple seasons of Weeds. I didn’t like it.  If you want to watch a better drug culture tv show watch Breaking Bad.  It has way better acting, writing, and overall directing. Warning, breaking bad IS depressing, but it is quality scripted tv!!

Some quick tv notes/updates:

Trauma has been canceled by NBC.  It was just WAY too expensive for the low ratings it was getting.

Rumor is more episodes of Chuck have been ordered. YAY!! And might even air sooner than expected!!! WOOT!!!

I still love SYTYCD.  It’s a very talented bunch this season. It is my guilty pleasure.

I have also been watching Amazing Race this season, but I don’t love the cast so I’m not loving the season.

Dollhouse last week was actually great, but that’s because the main character Echo (played by Eliza Dushku) wasn’t in it much.  The supporting cast is just WAY stronger than Eliza.  She has 3 personalities to handle and way too often they all get muddled. Joss Whedon is the kind of show creator/writer/director that might just kill her off, but because she is also a Producer, I don’t think he has the balls to do it.

Top 2 shows right now would be:  Fringe & Castle.  Both leave me happy every week. What have you been watching?

A few more of the Fall 2009 TV Premieres

October 5, 2009 at 9:43 am (babbling, Entertainment, TV)

First of the new shows canceled was Ashton Kutcher’s “The Beautiful Life.” It’s ratings were just super low.  I didn’t watch it because I really don’t care about models and their lives.

Eastwick – I thought this would just be a Charmed like reboot and wasn’t really looking forward to it at all. Because of it’s time slot (when nothing else is on), I decided to give it a chance. And I liked it. It had good comedic timing, it was interesting and mysterious. Even when it was a little predictable they pulled it off in a charming way.

Flash Forward – VERY interesting concept. Everyone (save a few) passes out and sees what’s going to happen 9 months later. This episode was extremely depressing and futile. If in the next week or so we don’t see that they can change their futures, I will also delete this show from the tivo cue.

Grey’s Anatomy – normally I like this show, but this episode felt WAY too predictable. Other than the curve ball at the end of the show, which seems like a desperate way to inject new life into the series. I think if it continues down this path I may just delete it in a couple weeks.

Smallville – sadly I don’t remember what happened – OH WAIT – yeah a bunch of mushy stuff. My biggest beef is that Superman now looks like Batman. It was just meh. Sadly I thought the last season of this show would be a little more – epic.

Mercy – was trying WAY to hard to be Grey’s Anatomy, except wasn’t as well written or acted.  Especially when they take the heroine and make her a cheating biatch in 1 episode.  Networks – WE NEED PEOPLE TO ROOT FOR!! We need to know them and love them before you throw major stones at them or get them stuck in a tree.  I have deleted it from the tivo.

I hear Dexter was awesome. We netflix the show, so we won’t get to see the new season until January. It is a fairly dark show, but has amazing writing.

Sam will update you on NCIS, NCIS LA and Numb3rs if you are interested. I went to sleep for those.

A few of the Fall 2009 TV Premieres

September 18, 2009 at 10:44 am (babbling, Entertainment, TV)

So far I’ve watched:

Vampire Dairies – which was awful.  It was slow, boring, slow, torturous, had awful music edits and I won’t be watching it again.

Glee – which I LOVE the concept for, but the over produced music is driving me INSANE.  It’s Glee club, I want to hear them sing for REAL.  I do not want to hear over dubbed, over layered, and effected CD tracks.  Then I would just listen to iTunes or a CD.  I also find that they are trying to cram too many story lines into 1 episode.  I’m not sure if it’s because they have too many cooks in the kitchen (aka too many people giving notes) or if it’s because the head honchos are just green. We will see if they can fix it or not, but I might only have a couple more episodes in me before I delete it out of sheer frustration.

Bones – premiere came back fairly strong.  The story had a good mystery, no real twists and continued sexual tension between Bones & Booth. Deep down I wish they would just hook up already, but I know that’s usually the kiss of death for a tv show. The overall cast just has such a great chemistry it’s always worth watching to see what will happen next.

Fringe – also came back strong.  An interesting start, good setup for the rest of the season,

Community – was a nice surprise.  Starring Joel McHale & Chevy Chase I wasn’t sure if this would be a hit or a miss.  It was funny though and not too over the top, staged, or preachy feeling.  Within 22 minutes you got a good feel for the main characters and there are quite a few to root for.  My favorite line of the episode was McHale’s character Jeff Winger”…either I’m God, or truth is relative. Either way Boo-Yah.” I’m looking forward to more of Community!

Have any of you caught anything I missed that you think I should tune in for??

A special congratulations to everyone on Intervention that won an Emmy last weekend!! I’ve worked with a few of them, and they are truly deserving of the award.

***EDIT*** MOVED to Friday, September 25th – 9 PM – Fox “Dollhouse”

Fall 2009 New Shows/Premiere Dates

August 26, 2009 at 4:25 pm (babbling, Entertainment, TV)

Hi everyone! Sorry it’s been so long.  Sam and I are expecting and have just 4 months left until we have our first born child.  It’s a boy.  So much to do and so little time!!

The fall tv season is approaching at breakneck speed. Hopefully this will help you set your @tivo schedule better.

New Shows

The only new show on Monday nights is at 9pm on NBC Trauma. It’s a Paramedic show and the fall promos seem half decent.  With ER off the air, most of the networks are trying to replace it. We will see if this one sticks.

Tuesday night has a few new shows.  ABC at 8pm has Shark Tank (which honestly looks like a crappy local tv reality show – you try to convince millionaires to invest in you). At 10pm ABC has The Forgotten (interesting concept, they are trying to figure out who 40,000 dead people were, but is this just another Christian Slater flop?).   CBS has NCIS: LA at 9pm and at 10pm the The Good Wife.  It is starring Julianna Margulies as a mom who has to take control of her family when her husband goes to jail after a very public sex scandal.  I think I will pass on this one.

Wednesday nights is a whole new sitcom night for ABC including old stars in new shows. Kelsey Grammer is starring in Hank, Patricia Heaton in The Middle, Ed O’Neil aka Al Bundy in a very funny new show called The Modern Family and Courtney Cox is in Cougar Town.  CW is going for Gossip Girl in the high fashion world with The Beautiful Life: TBL at 9pm. Pass! NBC also looking to steal ER’s audience with the nurse drama Mercy at 8pm. Let’s say maybe on that one, wait and see what the buzz is.  One show I am looking forward to this fall and that has GREAT potential is Fox’s new show Glee at 9pm.

Thursday nights for ABC has FlashForward at 8pm.  This is where the whole world blacks out and sees what happens 6 months from that day. FlashForward has a great promo campaign, and I will be tivoing it to see what it’s like.  CW is trying to use True Blood and Twilight’s buzz  to release Vampire Dairies at 8pm.  Although VD has the WORST advertising campaign EVER – we don’t want to see 2 teens just sitting around and WRITING. UGH. AWFUL.  I won’t watch it unless it gets AMAZING buzz.  So let me know if you guys watch this and like it.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday has nothing new/notable.  For all the shows including the old ones go here for a full breakdown.  I’ve not mentioned Melrose Place because it doesn’t count as new, just recycled.

A few more shows renewed…

May 16, 2009 at 9:21 am (babbling, Entertainment, TV) (, , , , , , , )

ABC has picked up Better Off Ted, Castle, Scrubs and they want the new V series, but WB hasn’t signed off yet.  I loved the old V series, so I will tune in, although I’m skeptical since it has none of the same characters as the old series.

Nikki Finke on her blog Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting Fox’s Dollhouse has been renewed.

Still no news about Chuck although several sources say “it looks good.” Whatever that means. I’m not getting my hopes up just in case.

Sam and I saw Star Trek and both loved it. I just think it’s too bad they did all expensive well-known cast people because now they can’t do a tv-show spin off.  Which I would have loved.

Don’t forget to set your DVRs to record Glee on Fox after American Idol Tuesday night.  It looks fantastic!!

Edit:  Bones also just got renewed yesterday (Friday), so that’s good news considering the series finale was so crappy.
