2007 Fall TV Lineup .

Well, it’s here. The days are cooler, kind of. The Halloween decorations are starting to show up in stores. It’s fall. That means the return of old favorites and brand spanking new TV shows.

Old Friends.

I can’t wait til Thursday. Brand new My Name is Earl and The Office. Yay! Those are two of my favorite shows. Back to back, throw in ER and it’s probably the best night of TV NBC has had in a long time. Well, since the season finale of those shows anyway. I’m particularly looking forward to Earl.

Familiar Faces.

Reaper

The cast of Reaper.

As long as it’s more Clerks and less Jersey Girl, I’ll be happy.

There are a few new show I’m looking forward to. Reaper has been getting some buzz. I can understand why. Big names behind the camera, and familiar faces in front of it. You might recognize Bret Harrison from The Loop, a weird show about an airline. If you have better taste, you’ll recognize him as Brad O’Keefe from Grounded for Life, or maybe his short run on That ’70s Show. Yes, he was on That ’70s Show. He was the nerdy guy while Topher Grace was busy becoming a movie star. Even better news, sorry Bret, Kevin Smith is behind the camera. As long as it’s more Clerks and less Jersey Girl, I’ll be happy. My only problem with it is the time slot. It’s opposite The Office, so I’ll wind up recording it. It’s on Tuesdays.

The show centers around Sam Oliver, played by Bret Harrison. Turns out his parents sold his soul, and now he works for the devil. Well, part time, he also holds down a crappy job.

Sounds good to me.

Big Bang Theory

The cast of Big Bang Theory.

Two scary smart nerds with a sexy, dumb, neighbor. Classic TV.

Another show I’m looking forward to is Big Bang Theory on CBS Monday nights. I’d heard nothing about the show. The only reason I’m aware of it now is late night TV. Nope, not Jay or Conan. Infomercials. Well, the paid advertising spots that are normally filled with infomercials. I was flipping channels trying to find something other than a Girls Gone Wild ad and I found Big Bang Theory. They had actually paid to show an episode. It even had the “This was a paid program” disclaimer at the end. I don’t know why I haven’t heard about this show. It is hilarious. Well, it is if you’re a geek.

Two scary smart nerds with a sexy, dumb, neighbor. Classic TV. Doesn’t sound like much but the banter is dead on. Seriously, the dialog in this show rivals Joss Wheadon. Anyone who has seen anything Joss has done knows he is a master of dialog, so that’s saying a lot. I think Big Bang Theory can back it up.

Big Bang Theory also has someone you might recognize. Johnny Galecki, David from Roseanne, plays Leonard. His roommate Sheldon is played by Jim Parsons, who has been in Judging Amy and Ed, so I don’t recognize him. Kaley Cuoco, best known for 8 Simple Rules, plays the hot chick Penny. Those three seem to be the core of the show, but everybody was great when I saw it.

There is hope for TV this season.

    Oh yeah. I’m waiting on Lost too. If I posted about all the shows I like I’d never have time for anything else. *L*

    Heroes started back up last night. I’ll probably do a post on that. Lost when it’s a bit closer. The same with Battlestar Galactica.

    The list goes on. *L*

    One night while I was in a rare mood to watch television and flipping through channels, I came across some show that was showing bits of new shows to come and Reaper was featured. It really did look and sound interesting but I have a habit of forgetting to turn on the television most of the time so I probably will rarely see it. lol I haven’t had a show that I tune in for religiously since…Buffy?…Digimon? I can’t remember which one ended last.

    I think Digimon is still going. Isn’t it? Just not with the same characters. I don’t really know because I stopped watching after the second story line, the one with Ty’s little sister.

    I’m a big fan of the Office and Earl too.

    I think Earl is off to a slow start this season. They need to get him out of prison ASAP.

    The Office has been great so far. Ryan is like a lot of people I’ve seen promoted into positions of power. They become buzzword spouting jerks.

  5. 2xKnight

    I don’t know. I think it can work with Earl in prison. You’re right though, they do need to pick up the pace a little bit. I was extremely happy to see Jimmy though. I’ve bee wondering where he went. Well, not so much him as beer can tag. I liked that game.

    I get the feeling that Ryan is going to get knocked down a peg or two soon. I hope so, he’s an ass.
