Now that it’s the middle of October (*pauses to cry*), I’m going to talk about fall television. Why? To distract myself from refreshing my email every ten seconds, looking for my Christmas novella cover. WANT! Anyway…what we’re watching here at Casa Stacey:
The Amazing Race – Still as awesome as ever. We’ve never missed an episode.
And that’s pretty much all we watch on Sunday. We use the extra time to catch up on DVRed shows.
How I Met Your Mother – We’ve only watched 1 or 2 episodes from this season. Still okay, but I’m ready for him to meet their mother, already.
2 Broke Girls – Watched the first episode. The rest of still waiting. Might delete them.
Two and a Half Men – Watched the first episode. Laughed our asses off, but still don’t think the show will survive losing Sheen. We’ll give it a couple more.
Mike & Molly – Haven’t watched any from this season yet. Not sure how they’ll keep it from getting stale.
Hawaii 5-0 – The writing’s bad, the plots are ridiculous and the science is worse than CSI’s, but this is probably my favorite show on television right now. Love it.
Terra Nova – It’s okay. It’s different, which is nice. But also kind of dumb.
House – We’ve about given up on this one. We used to love it, but they’ve sent him so far off the deep end he’d never be allowed to practice again. And he’s a jerk.
Castle – Still love it, but I’m glad they’re moving away from the super-heavy drama and back to the light fun banter.
Last Man Standing – Haven’t watched it yet, but Tim Allen’s pretty damn funny.
Body of Proof – I hate this show. My husband makes me tape it, so I suspect he’s got a little thing for the character I refer to as “slutty M.E.”. He hasn’t watched any of this season’s yet, so maybe I’ll get lucky and they’ll cancel it and I can delete them.
NCIS – Meh. Not stellar so far. My love for the cast keeps me there, but it’s getting stale. The teen passed up this week’s, saying the show’s gotten boring.
NCIS:LA – Ditto. Meh. Not happy with how G’s background has played out, and the rest of it’s getting boring.
Parenthood – Love this show. Madly. The writing and the acting are so awesome.
Modern Family – So funny. We’re still crazy in love with this one.
Revenge – I’m shocked by how much I’m loving this show. We’re an episode behind (maybe 2 now) but it’s delicious.
Survivor – I wish they’d quit bringing back former players. It changes the game dynamic. Still not a fan of the Redemption Island 2nd-chance thing. And make Russell’s nephew stop crying, ffs.
Criminal Minds – I’m so happy the team’s back together I don’t even care what happens in the show. As a bonus, though, the plots have been good, too.
CSI – Meh. Ted Danson’s kept me from giving up on it, but I end up multitasking a lot. Doesn’t hold my interest anymore.
Grey’s Anatomy – I actually officially quit this show two episodes ago by deleting it with like 12 minutes left in the episode. Bottom line: I don’t like these people enough to care what happens to any of them.
The Big Bang Theory – Losing it’s magic for me, although Sheldon and his ohmigod, she did NOT just say that girlfriend keep me coming back.
Person of Interest – My husband and the teen like it more than I do. I like the fact they made the premise kinda-sorta-maybe almost feasible rather than relying on psychics or seeing dead people, but both main characters speak in monotones and it grates on my nerves.
Nothing at 10pm, so DVR catch-up hour
Blue Bloods – We haven’t watched any of this season’s yet. Mostly on Friday nights I just mourn the lack of Flashpoint.
Fringe – I don’t like this show. At all. But it’s my husband’s favorite so I’m stuck with it. The only thing I ever liked about it was the relationship between Walter and Peter and the writers have slowly and systematically destroyed that.
Harry’s Law – We’ve only watched the first episode from this season, but it’s a really good show. Love Kathy Bates. We DVR the replays on Saturday nights because the DVR’s full on its regular night. (If they stop replaying it on Saturday nights I’ll cry.)
What’s your favorite show this season?
