1/4 Wednesday What You Should Watch

4 Jan

Oh Happy Day!! ABC Wednesday night line up is all new.

Top Spot – Revenge

The promo showing Tyler holding everyone at gunpoint was crazy. The Grayson’s divorce is proceeding, Daniel is plotting against his father with his mother, and Faux Amanda is showing her true slutty colors.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out Suburgatory yet, I highly recommend this comedy. Cheryl Hines steals the show and who knew Jeremy Sisto could be so funny.  He will always be Elton from the movie Clueless to me.

Revenge

Episode: Duress
An unstable visitor crashes Daniel’s intimate birthday celebration; Conrad and Victoria use Charlotte as a pawn in their bitter divorce battle; Emily’s plan starts to unravel.
 
 

Suburgatory

When Dalia hires Tessa to drive her around to stalk her crush, Tessa ends up developing feelings for the guy; George’s decision to join the country club puts stress on his relationship with Noah.
 

Modern Family

When Phil misses a call from his doctor with test results, he immediately assumes the worst; Javier stops by to take Manny to the horse races; Mitchell’s winning of an environmental law award sparks a competition.
 

Happy Endings

Dave has a surprising reaction when his shrink (Ken Marino) starts dating Penny; Max and Jane’s fight over a sweater leads to a strange competition; Alex and Brad bond when they discover a shared interest.
 

The Middle

Frankie decides that each family member will have a New Year’s resolution assigned anonymously, with an incentive to help keep everyone on track; chaos ensues as all try to fulfill their promises.

TV Season Half Way Thru – Let’s Discuss

12 Dec

We are halfway thru the 2011-2012 TV season, so I thought now would be a good time to share our thoughts on where we are so far.  Did the shows you were psyched for let you down? What shows looked like they were going to fail but totally surprised you? 

Shows that lived up to my expectations

2 Broke Girls – I had high hopes for this show,a sassy chick comedy. It took a few episodes but I am sold. The jokes are pretty raunchy, and the premise is pretty thin, but Kat Dennings and Beth Behers make it work.  What still isn’t working for me is Oleg, the cook. I wish he was a little more Mel from Alice and a lot less pervy.

American Horror Story – A big fan of Ryan Murphy‘s Nip/Tuck days (until the Carver), I had high hope for this show, not to mention the strength of a cast including Connie Britton and Jessica Lange and Mr. Murphy delivered. This is by far the most creative and daring show on basic cable. 

Once Upon A Time – I don’t know why, I mean it is a pretty silly sounding premise, but I knew this would be good. From the writing, to the acting to the outstanding production values this show has delivered as expected.  Robert Carlyle and Lana Parilla would be nominated for Emmy’s if it wasn’t such a political mess.

Ringer – I expected a good noir thriller, with many twists and turns and that is what I got. What makes Ringer more successful in my eyes is, it doesn’t take itself too seriously and they move the plot along at a quick clip.

Shows that surprised me

A Gifted Man – I have to admit the premise sounded pretty cheesy. Egotistical doctor gets schooled by the ghost of his saintly x-wife, but Patrick Wilson makes it work and the show is watchable. I hope it gets a second season there is a lot of potential, and a lot of room to grow these characters and the storylines.

Hart of Dixie – I was on board from the beginning, but I am genuinely surprised at how much I am loving this show.  The writers have come a long way since the pilot, and are giving as much time and attention to fleshing out the supporting characters and relationships as their leads.  More George and Wade, more Lavon and Zoe friendship, and for the love of god give Lemon a few more layers. Shrill,, shriller, shrillest is not depth.

Homeland – Actually I would say this show completely blew me away. (No Pun intended).  Claire Danes is flat-out amazing, I hope she is recognized later this week at the SAG Award nominations and next fall at the Emmy’s.  Since this comes from the creators of 24, I would not put it past them to blow up Sgt. Brody in the finale.  Just like Jack Bauer Carrie can have a new foe every season.

Revenge – I thought this would be fun, a return to the days of Dallas and Dynasty. But this is far more advanced, and polished.  Thank you for the best guilty pleasure since, birthday cake and ice cream.

Suburgatory – The premise, a basic fish out of water story. What makes this one different, the cast, Jeremy Sisto and Jane Levy are great as our fish. But Cheryl Hines and Carly Chaikin as mother and daughter Dallas and Dalia steal the show.

Shows that disappointed, and I wouldn’t miss if the got cancelled

Grimm – Sorry, it isn’t settling, the characters, the stories, it just doesn’t work.

Secret Circle – nothing to say, please go away now.
