This year I have found 3 shows already that I am loving and I really hope they make a go of it.
We (DH & I) watched this pilot last week and we both really liked it. There is a lot of mystery, and flashbacks in this new show all set in the background of the Hamptons and "the beautiful people." It is a lot like a great beach read; it is shallow and fun but intriguing enough to make you want to see more. You can catch Revenge on ABC Wednesday's at 10:00 pm.
DH and I watched the pilot on Sunday night and I loved it. He wasn't as excited but I really loved it. Apparently I am on this really retro/early 60s jag right now because of shows like Mad Men and movies like The Help. I loved the clothes, the hair, the makeup! It is all so glamorous in a way that we seem to have lost in this modern age. I also was drawn in by the "spy" subplot that looks to be very interesting! The girls are all beautiful, smart and funny - just what you would expect from "modern girls." Pan Am is on ABC on Sundays at 10 PM.
I watched this little gem last night and really liked it! This is a multi layered story that has potential with a variety of strong characters and I can't wait to see where it takes us. It was particularly nice to see Scott Porter (formerly Jason Street on Friday Night Lights) up and walking around...well, except when he gets run down by an elderly man....but that is only a minor story line! I was proud that Hart of Dixie didn't seem to want to totally mutilate the Southern accents, although they have several variations represented (cause y'all do know that all Southerners don't sounds alike, right???) See Hart of Dixie on CW on Mondays at 10 PM. It looks like it will be a lot of fun!
So, these along with a few comedies that I have grown attached to in the last year (Raising Hope, The Middle, Modern Family) and my bizarre fascination with Hoarders, Buried Alive, I actually might be morphing into a Television Watcher...I swan! My only issue with these new shows is that they are all on at 10 pm...which, sadly, is kind of late for me on a consistent basis. Y'all I tell you I am getting old!!! I very well may need to investigate some of this modern technology that I keep reading about that allows you to record a show and watch it later...what is it called...a VCR or something?
