Once again, here are my favorite shows in the past year. I can never pick just 10 so there are more than that. Oh well! There are other shows that I love a lot, but they either didn’t have a stellar year or I don’t watch the shows as quickly as I watched all of these so I figured they aren’t my absolute favorites.
Breaking Bad Channel: AMC Starring: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, RJ Mitte, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt
The reason I love the show is that it goes to really dark, messed up places and somehow gets out of jams or deals with them in unexpected ways. Hank’s wife found out he was making and selling meth. That didn’t go over too well when she kicked him out, even though he refused to leave his own house for a while. Jesse was pissed at Walter. When they fight, it is hilarious. They both don’t want to do anything with one another, until they realize they need each other. Finally, when things get really scary for them both, the season end’s on an awesome cliffhanger.
Fall TV Season is upon us. Even though quite a few shows got an early start this month, this week is the official season premiere week. Beware, this post will be huge!
Season Finales: Top Gear, Warehouse 13
Pick of the Week
Dexter Channel: SHO Time: 9/8c Starring: Michael C. Hall, Julie Benz, Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, C.S. Lee, Lauren Velez, David Zayas, James Remar Premieres: Sunday, September 27 Trailer
Synopsis: Dexter got married and found out he had a kid on the way. Can a serial killer really have the perfect life? This season also stars a very successful serial killer for Dexter to admire, played by John Lithgow.
My Take: I keep wondering how long the show can last before it’ll burn itself out since he can’t keep killing forever, can he? But I’ll continue to watch it as it continues to be so very excellent.
A breakdown on what’s new, gone and changing each night of the week on CBS come Fall 2009:
CBS shuffled around its comedy line-up a bit, but kept to the same format of comedies all night long, including laughfest CSI:Miami. Gone is Worst Week, which I don’t think anyone will miss. Leading off the night will be How I Met Your Mother followed by the new Jenna Elfmen comedy, Accidentally on Purpose, about an older woman who gets pregnant after a one-night stand with a much younger guy she picked up on at a bar. She decides to keep the baby and the boy. Wait, isn’t that really close to the plot of Knocked Up except it is an age difference instead of an attractive difference? I might be interested in the show, if I liked the cast, but Jenna Elfman has always bugged me so I’ll ignore it! After that, it is the Chuck Lorre hour since he produces both Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory that run right into David Caruso in CSI: Miami whipping his sunglasses off while repeating his lines for dramatic effect. Acting!
