TV (second version)

We’ve just finished the first season of the TV shows that I presented in september and I’d like to do a recap on it. The first list is here.

Ringer (with Sarah Michelle Gellar – Buffy) positively sucked. It had a good start but I got really bored after the first 5 episodes.

Up all night (SNL cast Maya Rudolph + Cristina Applegate) was all fun an giggles until I stopped being interested. It was over the top without being funny. The Middle on the other hand got all warm and fuzzy and good. Raising Hope is still good but I kinda got over it. Modern family is as strong as ever.

New girl (Zooey Deschanel) still is strong and interesting. I’m quite pleased with it.
Grimm is completely boring and down the drain. If I had to compare it to Supernatural it would just be this enourmous failure.
Terra Nova (Steven Spielberg’s dinosaur baby) was nice but it needs a push out of the ‘done before’ zone.
Finally newcomers that I particularly like:
1. Suburgatory is funny, witty and pushed newcommer Jane Levy, that was revealed through Shameless, (another good spin-off/retake on a classic but it slowed a bit down this season and I’m waiting to see if I can get back into it) to comedy stardom. I also like Cheryl Hines, seen before in Waitress.

2. Once upon a time: when I was 10 I had to decide between Harry Potter and Lord of the rings because I couldn’t go to both movies – I eventually decided on Harry Potter and bought the DVDs of the Lord later on. I thought of the same between Grimm and Once upon a time (starring Jennifer Morrison from House) but eventually I realised that choosing Grimm wasn’t that good. Once upon a time is pure enchantment and very thrillery in a way – and I think it’s the best new-commer drama this season.

3. Revenge prooved to be quite the solid hit and a new spin to the Monte Cristo legend.

4. Spartacus Vengence, the sequel to Spartacus Blood and Sand (prequel Spartacus Gods of the Arena), brightened a few of my days this year. It was better than I expected – and as seen before I was expecting a lot.

The series finale of Grey’s Anatomy and How I met your mother were great.

Game of Thrones was a revelation until I noticed that the author was killing way too many good actors. So I stopped watching it.

I’ve stopped Free Agents ages ago, couldn’t go past the 5th episode of Pan Am (Cristina Ricci).

RIP to House, I will be missing it badly (here’s a video of Hugh Laurie just in case) and to Desperate Housewives, especially since it kind of didn’t end very well this season, it seemed rushed and all.
