Liar, liar. Pants on fire. That’s what I was singing all the way through this Monday’s episode of Life. First, there’s Jack Reese who’s lying about everything in his life. Then, there’s Charlie’s ex-lawyer and ex-love interest who’s saying she never heard Jack Reese be implicated in the murders of Charlie’s best friend and his family.
Hey, wanna do some ‘roids? Come on, all the cool kids in L.A. are doing it. At least they are in this week’s episode of the sharp sorely missed cop drama with a twist, Life.The other question of the week: Why is Dani Reese so good while Jack Reese is definitely not?
Reports are flying around that most of the series airing on the major networks on Monday nights are already suffering in the ratings. Fox’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles got off to a good start when it premiered earlier in September but the ratings have dropped significantly since then
We’ve got both episodes posted here for you to check out if you’re up for it. I’m personally feeling stuffed from the super-sized premiere of Heroes that aired tonight but I’m sure a new episode of Chuck or a bit of Life will be just the Heroes-hangover cure I need to get me going tomorrow morning.
Entertainment Weekly is teaming up with Hulu.com to give fans of some of NBC’s new and returning series a head start on the season premieres. There isn’t much information posted about this little pair-up just yet. This week’s issue had a blurb about it tucked away in the “Feedback” section (Page 8) and I found it posted in the same section on the magazine’s website.
Fall’s not that far away and as the summer shows are beginning to wrap up, I’ve been finding myself wondering when to expect some of my favorite shows to return from the summer hiatus. So I figure now’s as good a time as any to get started on the big premiere schedule. We’ll be posting previews for all of the new and returning shows this season and as always, the schedule is a work in progress.
It’s network upfront season, which means the networks will be unveiling their upcoming primetime lineups. NBC recently released their new schedule for fall 2008 through summer 2009. While it’s a little too early to start setting your DVRs, the schedule looks promising and there are quite a few new series included on the schedule.
NBC had its upfront presentation today, where it unveiled its schedule for next season. In addition to new shows such as The Office spinoff we previously reported on, many fan favorites will be returning next season. Chief among those is Friday Night Lights, the low-rated, but beloved high school football series. FNL will be returning for a 3rd season, but won’t premiere until the winter.
I enjoy Chuck, even though I’ve only once seen the first half of the show (and yes, I know I should get DVR-- I’m working on it, OK?) And this is good news for me, since NBC has given Chuck a back-nine order, along with fellow freshman series, Life. This means that, once the writer’s strike is over, we’ll get to see more sexual tension between Chuck and Sarah ,more stupid antics from Morgan, and hopefully a lot more adorable homoerotic tension between Chuck and Morgan. Oh, and also firearms. Lots and lots of firearms.
If you’re currently finding yourself falling in love with any of the new TV series that began airing a week or two ago and you’re anything like me, you’re probably waiting for the axe to fall. Call it pessimism if you will, but in this day and age when new shows are cancelled fairly quickly, there’s no shame in preparing for the worst. For a handful of this fall’s new series, the future is still uncertain but their respective networks have decided to give them a few more weeks.
