2010 TV Round Up - Part 1


That means in addition to my old favorites returning (like Chuck!), it's time for the new shows to premiere!  This makes my week incredibly hectic to get all my viewing in, but I've managed pretty well.  Thank you DVR and internet.

Here's the quick rundown of what I think of this season's new shows...or at least the ones that have air Sunday - Tuesday.

Boardwalk Empire (HBO) - Awesome.  Steve Buscemi is so good.  They've done a marvelous job on the sets and the story.  I'm looking forward to the rest of this season.

Chase (NBC) - It's a cop show set in Texas.  Nothing you haven't already seen before.  (What's up with everyone being enamored of Texas?  Is it the boots or the hats?)

The Event (NBC) - Boring.

Mike & Molly (CBS) - I could watch the 50% of the show that doesn't ask me to laugh at the characters for being fat.  But I'm going to skip this after the requisite 3 episodes. Also, the laugh track drives me up the wall.

Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) - Surprisingly alright.  I'll give it a few episodes to see if it makes the final rotation, but Grace Park is AWESOME.  Alex O'Laughlin (the lead) is the least charismatic of the actors on that show, but his co-stars more than make up for that.

Raising Hope (Fox) - Eh.  It's a serialized version of Raising Arizona but sans Holly Hunter and Nick Cage.  A few laughs, but doesn't come close to Modern Family, Community, Parks & Rec, or any other established comedy.

Running Wilde (Fox) - Ouch.  I think I laughed twice.  Ouch.  Bring back Arrested Development.
