Premier Week

It’s premier week. And that makes me pretty darn happy. It’s sort of like starting a new book full of your favorite characters (speaking of favorite characters in books, Dan Brown has a new Robert Langdon book that I’m totally stoked about). There were a couple of new shows that I got totally addicted to last season, so I’m especially looking forward to their return.

Sons of Anarchy started last week. Going into its second year, it’s far and away the one I was most looking forward to. Which probably seems weird. I mean, it’s a show about an old school motorcycle gang that is violent and illegal and mean. They do awful things to people and those things inspire other people to do even more awful things back to them. But the writing is brilliant. The characters are utterly intriguing and I’ve always had a soft spot for bad boys. Plus Charlie Hunam is hot, I love Katey Sagal and Ron Perlman is just fun to watch.

Also? There’s Castle. I could watch Nathan Fillion fix a light bulb and call it perfect TV. I just flat love the guy and he can do no wrong in my eyes. Which is a good thing because this show is not really all that good. His co-star, Stana Katic, is sorta funny and smart, but pretty much the whole show revolves around (and works because of) Nathan Fillion. And even though I’d much rather watch his talents be utilized in a way that is much more befitting of his talent, I’ll take what I can get.

Then of course there are the returning favorites, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Bones, House, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory and Numbers as well as a few others (that I would also name but I just noticed how long the list is and I’m suddenly very self-conscious).

And Chuck and LOST will be back after the beginning of the year.

There are a few new ones this year as well, although none that I’ve been impressed with enough to really give that much thought to so far.

Time to put the Netflix account on hold again.

re: Dan Brown

I'm not sure how to reconcile the guilty-pleasure storylines with with GAWD AWFUL writing. Any thoughts?

Angels and Demons was not written well, but I read it after The DaVinci Code so was already totally wrapped up in the character and didn't care as much. The DaVinci Code was actually not written that badly in my opinion..we'll see how his new one is.

And when I venture into brain candy territory, there is no reconciling. I just give myself up to it and let go... :)
