And now I'd like to talk about some of the Fall TV that we're starting to see. Last night, I saw Flashforward . . . and I have to say that I liked it! Alot! The main issue I see with the show at this point is that the SF event that is the heart of the show has already happened. It's the setup. The rest appears to be the story unfolding from this event and how people react to it, so I'm kind of wondering if they can keep up the "cool" factor of the premise without doing more "flashforwards" down the road. They've certainly got a few mysteries to solve, which is good. I'm certainly interested in the show and intend to keep watching.
During one of the breaks for this, they showed a trailer for a remake of V. I never saw the original show when it aired, but the preview looked interesting. It had the cool SF factor, but it didn't really give away much in terms of storyline. So in that respect, Flashforward kicked V's ass. I was much more anxious about seeing the Flashforward premiere than I am to seeing the V premiere. I'll check it out of course.
I also watched Fringe last night, and it was good. But I already liked Fringe so there's no surprise there. I like what they're doing with the season so far.
After that I watched Project Runway. Not much to say here, except that it still seems to catch my attention and keep it.
In other reality TV news, I'm looking forward to The Amazing Race starting up this Sunday.
And that's what I've seen so far. What else is everyone anticipating or watching in the way of TV this Fall?
