There are some new shows I'm already loving.
The Walking Dead -- There's nothing super original about this zombie apocalypse series so far (there are shades of 28 Days Later and just about every other great zombie flick) but it more than makes up for it in character, story, and production values.
Hellcats -- This show had me at Hellcats. It's got lots of great elements: cheerleaders, pre-law, drunk mom, cute boys, and The Tiz with brown hair. Also, Aly Michalka is pretty awesome. Win-win-win. Check out this preview.
The Defenders -- I don't generally watch tons of comedy, but with Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell starring is slick Las Vegas lawyers, I'll make an exception.
There are a few shows that are right up my alley, but I haven't watched yet.
- The Event
As a die-hard fan of the series, I can't believe I missed the first few episodes of Law & Order: Los Angeles! I'll remedy that tomorrow. Fingers crossed that it fares better than Law & Order: Trial by Jury
I had really high hopes for Hawaii Five-0 (Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, and Daniel Dae Kim, what?) but the first couple episodes were so disappointing that I took it off my DVR list. Can a network please give Alex O the starring role in a series that will stick around for more than a season, please?
But never fear, there are new episodes of some old favorites starting up soon.
