Eureka!

by on May.18, 2009, under TV

Okay, the title reminds me that there is another show in limbo that I wish I knew the fate of.  That aside, there is good news in the world of television!  It seems that both Chuck and Dollhouse have been renewed!  So it seems that both NBC and Fox realized the value in some of their assets enough to give them another chance.

With NBC, my guess is that the prime reason that Chuck’s fate was questionable was the fact that they are opting to give Leno the 10-spot 5 days a week starting this fall which seriously hampers their drama line-up.  I’m not sure how much the Save Chuck campaigns factored into their decision, but thankfully they decided to squeeze it in.  I will highly be looking forward to seeing Chuck start kicking ass with his newfound intersect abilities.

As for Fox – they have earned a reprieve from any sort of boycott from me.  Granted I would have liked to see another season of Terminator over drawing out Fringe any longer (especially after their questionable finale showing off an alternate reality where the twin towers survived), Dollhouse was a more solid show and deserved the renewal.  I can’t wait to see how things progress with Ballard now a company man and Alpha’s schemes gone awry.  Plus I can never see too much of Echo in action – they couldn’t turn down that kind of eye candy on primetime television (I always had faith).

Finally, prompted by my choice in title I am happy to report that season 3.5 of Eureka will be starting up on SciFi in July.  So all is well in the world of TV … for now.  Well, aside from a half dozen other cancellations that have alerady happened and renewals that shouldn’t have … we must take what we can get.

Lately I’ve been writing a lot about TV shows.  Today will be no different (maybe it is because of sweeps … or maybe I just watch too much TV).  Today I’m writing about one of my favorite shows on the air – ChuckChuck is in its sophomore season and has proven to be quite an enjoyable series.  Sure it maintains a certain level of hi jinx, but it is all part of the fun of the show.  Unfortunately this is yet another show that is inexplicably

Heroes & Villains

by on Sep.23, 2008, under TV

I already feel like a bad fan.  I should have had this written last night within an hour after the premier was over.  Instead I didn’t even start watching it until it was mostly over (of course I DVRed it and watched from the beginning, I’m not that crazy).  It has been a hectic week (month, actually) at work.  I didn’t get home from the office last night until around 10.  And after watching the 2 hours of Heroes – I opted for the moment to skip the opening red-carpet hour (who needs appetizers with entrees like these?) and I went to bed right after because I had to be at work this morning early for more insanity.  I digress.  I can probably write a whole post on this topic, but that isn’t really my intent at the moment.
