It’s been a while since I’ve done a post where I wax and wane about my TV loves. It is no surprise to anyone who even remotely follows this blog that I love television. It keeps me sane and endlessly entertained. This year there has been a whole crop of new shows that I absolutely love. Some of them have even creeped ahead of my tried-and-trued-favorites in the TV rankings! I’ll start with my most recent discovery.
I was adamantly opposed to this show when I first saw the promos. The basic concept is that an esteemed military officer gets this smart chip implanted in his head that connects him to the entire communication and information grid, and craziness ensues. It sounded too much like my beloved Chuck (which was axed too soon) and I wrote it off as a cheap knockoff. Spoiler alert – I was wrong. Interesting characters are paired with smart, and fast-paced writing. I can’t wait for the next episode to air.
The Crazy Ones
I am CRAZY for this show. You really can’t go wrong when you have Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar (yeah, Buffy!) on the same screen. Just when you think it can’t get any better, add in the amazing supporting cast and the fact that it is set at an advertising agency in Chicago, and it does just that. It’s good. CRAZY good.
I’m not the only one to write glowingly about this show. It’s just me and pretty much everyone else on the interwebs. A revolutionary war veteran suddenly wakes up in current day Sleepy Hollow and works with a delightfully brazen and frank police officer to fend off literal evildoing. It’s creepy. It’s gripping. It’s full of Ichabod Crane in period clothing.
So, there’s that.
What shows are you guys watching this season?!
