So, let's see. There are a few new shows I'm loving this year, in addition to all the old standbys (Glee, Gossip Girl, The Office, Modern Family). First off is "Revenge" on ABC. Love this. It's so overly dramatic, so unrealistic, and such fun tv.
Who doesn't love watching rich, beautiful people in gorgeous clothes? It's right up my alley.
That's the only new drama I'm really hooked on. Last week, I watched the premier episode of "American Horror Story" on FX.
Oh. My. Gosh. This one scared the hell out of me. So disturbing. But I love Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott. Plus, it's from Ryan Murphy, the creator of "Glee" and (the also disturbing) "Nip/Tuck", so I figured it would at least be entertaining. Let's just say that it's the scariest thing I've ever seen on network tv, and scarier than lots of horror movies. It's just got that whole "edge of your seat" thing going for it. But I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't stop thinking about it, and then was scared all over again.For that reason alone, I just don't think I can add it to my regular tv schedule.
Onto the comedies. I'm sure you've all seen "Up All Night" with Christina Applegate and Will Arnett. Pretty funny stuff. Not up there with "Modern Family", but funny nonetheless. Christina Applegate is funny enough. She kind of reminds me of Jennifer Aniston in her acting ability. Will Arnett is great. And Maya Rudolph is always a good addition.
Finally, I really like "Suburgatory" on ABC. Really funny show about a teenage girl and her single dad who move from Manhattan to the suburbs. It's one of those comedies that could be really lame, but good casting and good writing seems to be keeping it well above average. Plus, Cheryl Hines is really funny as one of the suburban wives.
I think that wraps it up for the new shows. The new season of "Glee" has kind of fallen short for me. I love a good Broadway number, but come on. Good pop music is what made that show so good to begin with. Time to get back to the roots of the show.
Speaking of tv, it's time to get the kids to bed and get to watching!
