The second season just started and I'm seriously geeked-up about it. What I want to see: I'm just waiting for a mid-power hero to go the "underwear pervert" route - I can't wait for some schlub with some stupid power to dress up in tights and a cape, thus spilling the proverbial beans.
Verdict: You know you're already watching it - Don't stop.
Everybody's favorite serial killer killing serial killer is back! This show alone is worth the price for Showtime.
Verdict: If you don't have Showtime find a friend that does, and who doesn't mind you visiting every Sunday.
Dirty Sexy Money (ABC)
The basic premise is that a do-gooder lawyer (no, really) played by Peter Krause inherits his father's ultra-rich clients after he dies mysterious. The family he represents is essentially a mix of the Kennedys, Rockefellers, and the Hiltons. Chaos ensues. I've been a fan of Krause since his Sports Night days - His best-known role was that of Nate on Six Feet Under (which also starred Michael C. Hall of Dexter). The superb cast carries this show, which includes Donald Sutherland, Glenn Fitzgerald, a Baldwin, and a tranny. Good stuff.
Verdict: A pretty good show that's worth a watch.
This is essentially a re-thinking of Quantum Leap starring Kevin McKidd (Lucius Vorenus from HBO's Rome). It's a pretty good show and I appreciate that each episode stands on its own - I have too many story arcs to keep straight as it is. Check it out.
Verdict: Catch it if you can, but not a "must see".
Pushing Daisies (ABC)
Best new show, hands-down - This one gets the L&E Walrus of Approval. I'm really digging this show. It's only one episode in, but I'm watchin' 'em all until this one gets canned (in probably a month or two). Pushing Daisies has a very Tim Burton/Terry Gilliam/Jean-Pierre Jeunet feel to it - Real freakin' cool.Verdict: Watch it!!! Now!!!
Kevin Smith's Dead Like Me meets Ghostbusters meets Dogma mash-up. I'm watching it, but it really isn't doing that much for me. I really like Ray Wise (Twin Peaks) as the Devil, but everyone else just seems one-dimensional. If you do check this out, be sure to Tivo it - It seems like 1/2 of this show is fucking commercials. It's worth a watch if there's nothing else on.
I like David Duchovny. I like shows with gratuitous nudity. I like this show. It's like Sex and the City for misanthropic single guys.
Verdict: Watch it if you like Mr. Duchovny or nekkid girls.
