Here are our main guidelines when picking new shows:
1. What shows interest us?
2. What shows will be the new "water cooler" topic?
3. Which shows will fit within our dvrs? (We do NOT watch live TV period!)
People keep asking so we're sharing our top picks, so here they are:
1. Persons of Interest: CBS, Thursday, 8:00 Central, Sept 22
This show had us at produced by J.J. Abrams (our fave!) and stars Jim Caviezel. Added to that, it has this great futuristic, crime storyline. When we heard about this show in June, it felt like we won the lottery. If you take one show from us that you should watch, THIS IS THE ONE. If you needed further encouragement, it made the "Top 5 List" on both EW and TV Guide.
2. New Girl: Fox, Tuesday, 8:00 Central, September 20
We started seeing commercials during Idol last year and it stopped our DVR fast forwarding really fast. We are fans of Zooey Deschanel. I loved her in "500 days of Summer" and Snae's favorite show is Bones so she has a loyalty to the Deschanel family. Honestly, we don't know much but the commercials made us laugh so count us in!
3. Unforgettable: CBS, Tuesday, 9:00 Central, September 20
I was a big "Without a Trace" fan so hearing that Poppy Montgomery was going to be in a new show was very exciting for me. I love the idea that she has this ability to remember everything. I was completely convinced that this show would end up on my dvr. But after viewing the preview, Snae was also hooked. So living room dvr it is! This show has gotten the weakest reviews of these three, so we're hoping for the best.
We are picking up many other shows. We have a tendency to pick up lots of shows and finish out with very few. They either get cancelled or we decide they're not worth the time. Last season, we picked up at least 10 shows, and only one of those made it to this year's Vascoozie grid ("Hawaii 5-0"). The new TV season will officially begin on the living room dvr with "Anderson." Wish us luck! We're hoping for a great year and that our three shows make it to the Super Bowl and by that I mean, next year's dvr grid.
What shows are you most excited about this year? We can be easily swayed unless we've already decided we hate it.
