The new season of TV

I have to say so far the Fall season has been underwhelming. Even shows that I enjoy have been sub-par thus far. Sure, there’s several that I have enjoyed, but last season for many shows set the bar pretty high and it seems for the most part they are falling short this time around. I know there are one or two shows (ER for example) where I haven’t seen the new episode(s) yet so maybe they are going to thrill me. In the case of ER though I kind of doubt it. I mean I acknowledge that show lost whatever edge it had long ago; but for me its still a soap opera, as much as it pisses me off what they have done to the show I am still hooked on it. Oh well, I guess we all need that little bit of fluff.

I’ll be sad to see Stargate SG-1 come to an end. I’m curious to see how they’re going to say good-bye to the series. I can only hope it doesn’t happen like what happened with Farscape. They need to give it some form of closure. It doesn’t even need to be some huge cataclysmic fighting to save the fate of the universe kind of ending (though knowing SG-1 that’s what they have in store), but I’d like to see some kind of wrap up that does the show justice.

I am excited for the new season of Battlestar Galactica coming up. It’s just a couple weeks before the new episodes begin and the trailers really have me pumped for it. Hopefully it’s not going to deflate me when it finally airs. I have to say that it’s one of the only sci-fi series that can use modern music in their trailers and not have it come off as being at all cheesy.

The one thing, however, that has remained a gem is the Venture Brothers. It continues to be one of the most twisted shows on television. At times it makes no sense at all, it disorients all rational thought, but it makes me laugh so hard at times that I have to remind myself to breathe. We all need a little twisted break from reality now and again.


One thought on “The new season of TV

  1. Agreed – VB has kicked ass with each and every episode. The most recent, “I Know Why The Caged Bird Kills”, shows why Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer should just be handed the reins of Adult Swim. Or all of prime-time television, for that matter.
