It's TV time!

September 11th, 2009 (12:13 pm)

September has well and truely arrived now and that means it's time for all the new tv shows and seasons to start up again. So, what should I be watching? What, in your opinion, is the cream of the crop? What should I avoid at all costs, and which shows are your guilty secrets?

I understand Glee went down rather well earlier this year, Amazing Race andNCIS are returning soon, and I'm happily engrossed already in this years Top Chef (if Jen, Kevin and the brothers aren't at least 3 of the final 4, I'll eat my hat btw) and my own guilty pleasure of Big Brother US is almost over. So, what would you recommend to me?

Apart from SPN (started last night) and Merlin (starts 19/9), I'm looking forward to Castle (21/9) because I loved S1 and it finally convinced me that Nathan Fillion doesn't actually look like a haddock, The Mentalist (24/9) because it's got Simon Baker and a good supporting cast, and, heaven forfend, Strictly Come Dancing.

I will hear no criticism of Strictly over in this LJ. This also goes under the guilty pleasures tag. I'm in the habit of popping around to a friends house after working overtime on a Saturday, and his wife would always stick SCD on. Though I hated it to start with, it's horribly addictive.... Last year I even caught myself watching occasional eps of It Takes Two !!!!

Merlin - King Giles

LOL! Yep, Strictly is a guilty pleasure for me, too. Not sure why all the fuss about it being up against X Factor - has no one heard of Sky+ or PVRs? Last year, Saturday was my fave TV night, with Merlin and SCD back to back. Fun for the whole family! Well, me and hubby. *g*

Reality shows: Love Top Chef. I'm also watching Project Runway (adore Tim Gunn), Biggest Loser, and America's next top model, if only for the wacky ideas at the photoshoot.

Series, I follow: Castle, Bones, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory… I'm trying to get up to date on Psych.

There are a couple of interesting prospects on the horizon, but nothing concrete yet.

Top Chef this year is looking absolutely excellent with a very high quality set already. Did you catch Top Chef Masters? Now, that was seriously wonderful stuff.

Will have to try Project Runway - have heard good things about that too. I think I had that and America's Next Top Model mixed up before.

Re: Project Runway.

Girl Genius - Agatha Gil Oooooh

I'm looking forward to the season Premier of Bones next week, as well as Fringe.

Eureka is on for another two episodes before its third season ends.

Chuck should be coming back, and Castle is always a good choice.

I just watched the first two episodes of Glee.

You should watch that as well.
