Season Premiere Week: Monday

(Brand new shows marked with a *)

How I Met Your Mother: Always hilarious. I still can’t believe how funny the Doogie guy grew up to be. And one of the reasons I got sucked into this show is the storytelling method and how intriguing it is that the “core” relationship isn’t, because Robin’s not the mother.

* The Big Bang Theory: OMG. Opening with two guys going to the sperm bank together? :rofl: Funniest show since….hell, funniest show in a long, long time. The hubby and I were both dying. Please, everybody watch this one so they won’t yank it like they did “The Class” which was as funny as this one. I know intelligent and/or deadpan humor is a little tough for Simpsons Nation, but did I mention it’s funny?

Dancing With the Stars: So hard to judge by the first show, but I have loved Jane Seymour forever, and I thought Sabrina Bryan, who I’d never heard of, was awesome. I knew they’d ding her for such an untraditional Cha-cha-cha, though. And Marie Osmond looked lovely, and I was happy for her. I can’t wait for the men to dance tonight, because they look like a rowdy crowd. And 2-time Indy 500 champ Helio Castroneves should be fun to watch.

* Journeyman: Expectation: Yawn. Reality: First three minutes—huh? Hoping for Quantam Leap here. So far, not so much. 18 mins in—Eh. Not much new or engaging. 10:43—We should have watched Miami instead of DVRing it. End—Okay, Quantam Leap it’s not, but the last five minutes might get it a second chance.

CSI: Miami: DVRd it, because even though the cheezy smarminess got old seasons ago, I can’t stop watching. I wish I could quit it.

Oh, and from last week…K-Ville: Very, very disappointing. Cliched, unimaginative writing and probably doomed. We skipped episode 2.

Anticipating: House, Bionic Woman, NCIS, Criminal Minds, CSI (still up in the air about whether or not I want Sara to be found in time), 2nd episode of Survivor (because the premieres are always choppy and too full), and The Unit (although it was my favorite show, I think it jumped the shark at the end of the last season. Splitting them up—-really, really bad move).

    I barely watched CSI last year because I watched Grey’s. I had no idea Sara was missing and now I’m torn as to which one I want to watch and which one I want to DVR. We watched How I Met Your Mother and were dying and dying at the Big Bang Theory. Two and A Half Men was hilarious too, but we decided that the kids aren’t watching it and the sperm bank comment in BBT had my eight-year old asking, “what?”:doh:

    CSI Miami was okay. I won’t spoil it for you, but will be interested to see how this new piece of the puzzle fits in.

    I am so ashamed. I’ve heard of 2 of those but have watched only one and only 3 episodes of that (CSI: Miami)

    My kids were in bed, thankfully. The Tall Kid reads in his room for an hour or so before lights out.
