Writer's Block: A show for all seasons
Which returning TV show are you most excited to see again? Which shows from last season are you going to miss? Are there any new shows that look promising?


I don't often do these writer's block things, but what the hell.



*Returning North American Shows which are appointment/VCR set:

-Sep 20th: Chuck! (OMFG! *twitch* O.O)
-Sep 22nd: Criminal Minds (Rewatched '100' recently. O.O)
-Sep 22nd: CSI:NY (Kind of surprising, that. Cheesy cliffhanger ending and all.)
-Sep 24th: Supernatural (Duh!)

All premiering the week of Sep. 20. Oy.


*Shows I'll try to catch when I can:

-The Mentalist (Patrick and Sherlock really need to meet.)
-Lie to Me (I hear there's a guest star...)


*Shows from last season I'm going to miss:

...hm. None that spring readily to mind. IMO, Heroes picked a good 'full circle' place to end, and the crack monkeys had been infiltrating the script pit a bit too much in latter seasons anyway. Not sure if 24 is coming back, and from that I mainly miss Aaron Pierce and characters who are dead. I didn't watch most of last season.


*New Shows:

I've been deliberately not seeking out new shows (and I'm really not looking for any recommendations unless something is mindblowingly awesome like Sherlock), because seriously there's only so many free-time hours in a week for me, and I have far too many things to write already. I'm almost wishing North American studios and broadcasters would go to a non-season schedule, and just air shows at staggered intervals, but that wouldn't work due to the demands of advertisers.


*Non-North American Shows:

-SHERLOCK!!! OMG! *shakes the BBC until bits fall out* November 9th for the DVD in Canada!
-Doctor Who. Even though I STILL have to watch series 5.
-Torchwood. Still counting it as non-North American. Long ways to go before it's back though.


I know I'm forgetting things. What am I forgetting? Gah.

you should check out Warehouse 13 and Eureka. Both are great!! Also you should have a look at Castle, Human Target, and Undercover.

Maybe when I have some brain space. I'm really not looking for more shows to watch. I have tried all but Undercover at one point or another though, and they didn't grab me.

Leverage Leverage Leverage! (du-du du-du duuu-du!)

I hear the same guest star who's going to be on Lie To Me is going to be on The Mentalist.... :D (if I should happen to be thinking of the same guest star you are)

At some point when I have brain space I'll have to give Leverage a shot, but not anytime soon.

(if I should happen to be thinking of the same guest star you are)

More than likely. :-D

Only two more weeks till SPN! Yay!

Another year for new Sherlock. Boo!

And you really should watch the latest season of Doctor Who. It's got some issues (don't they all!) but Eleven actually fantastic. I was a bit wary, but he totally won me over.

Oh I will, eventually, I've even purchased all the episodes from iTunes. I just have to get through rewatching all of TenDoc, and one of the episodes has now very oddly become reference material for fic so I've stalled there. Also, I've been so completely spoiled for Series 5 without even trying (and in fact while trying hard not to be) that I feel like I already know everything that's going to happen, so the motivation to watch and see what happens isn't as strong as it would be if I knew nothing.

So yes, eventually, I'll watch it. I can't not. Just not yet.

the one new season show (aside from The Walking Dead at Halloween) I'm going to give a shot is Lonestar.

It seems very Justifed-ish (which is another show I highly recommend) with a dash of daddy issues, a bucket full of beautiful women (Adrianne Palicki FTW) and, you know, a con artist. You can never go wrong with a con artist ;)

I haven't magically seen it yet or anything but even from the promos it just seems a cut above everything else I've seen. The promos just get me very excited.

There seems to be a resurgence in the Western genre lately. Kind of funny.

I agree with all your choices, and most of Wombat's..lol I am also watching Vampire Diaries--guilty pleasure, books are better of course. *grabby hands for Sherlock*

It airs tonight if you get the station, don't forget.

Oh no fear of that. Mom's favourite line was "I'm in shock, look I have a blanket!" lol
