No, not speaking about autumn, although I love it. Leaves changing colour and the air that is not yet winter but isn’t summer anymore either. It’s gorgeous except when it rains like this morning and you start to think about how to best build an ark #truestory
What comes with autumn though, is the new TV season which means a TV junkie like me gets to see all his precious shows return to the screen, along with many new shows to explore. This year, I’m a little late to the party, it took me some weeks to catch up with everything TV-wise that was already going on but I finally got caught up this week, thanks to the national holiday in Germany yesterday. (Side-note: Yes, yesterday was the Mean Girls day but it was also the day we Germans celebrate the re-unification of our very own country, which happened on October 3rd, 1989. You’re welcome for that history lesson btw)
Continuing with what I wanted to write about (yep, sometimes there is an actual point to my posts), here’s what I watch right now:
So, so good. I love this show to pieces and all their characters! It saddens me though, that Haddie left for College and is not featured as regularly than she was before. Also, Kristina’s breast cancer hits a little bit too close to home after my last 2 years but I won’t let it keep me from enjoying one of my favourite shows.
Also, also, what will become of Sarah’s fiancée considering she has quite some chemistry with her new boss. They’re more age appropriate for each other as well *fingerscrossed*
Same as Parenthood. Cannot get enough of Brennan, Booth and the hot Angela. Now that Booth and Brennan are finally an item with baby and all I’m looking forward to their whole new dynamic.
It’s annyoing as ever but I can’t get away. They sing, you know? So, I’m hooked until they pull a Grey’s Anatomy on me. The new McKinley High students that joined the choir this year are just replacements for those who left the school. Sorry, but Marley is so set up to be the next Rachel. Unique will be a combination of Kurt and Mercedes. Also, 3 episodes without a real appearance by Santana is just wrong. I don’t care much for Brittany without Santana. Same goes for Blaine, he’s just boring without Kurt. Really, Kurt and Rachel are my favourites and I like that they reunited in New York. Although I’m dreading all that Finn drama which is coming our way but ok. Let’s hope it blows over quickly.
Adorable, but I mostly watch because Schmitt is hilarious and CeCe is HOT! Jess and Nick are the characters I like least, I know it sounds stupid but what can I do?! This whole will-they-won’t-they set-up has just been done too much.
How I Met Your Mother
Please, let Barney and Robin marry and tell us who that damn mother is! Love it though! Just bought Season 1 on DVD which is a huge commitment from my standpoint. What I’ve seen so far was hilarious and I can’t wait to see the rest of the season and hope it’s as good. Need a 1 minute recap of all seasons? Let Barney help you with that:
Eh, I think Season 1 was probably enough for me. Will try watching another episode and then I think I’m done. Too much intrigue for my liking. I probably already fell off the wagon a couple episodes before the season 1 finale.
Tonight the final season will begin and I’m sad, oh so sad, about this because it means I will not see Tina Fey on a regular basis anymore. I don’t know how many times I watched this show but it’s a lot and I can only hope that the end of 30 Rock will allow Tina to make more movies like Mean Girls. At least she’s under contract with Universal for a couple of more years. We will have to see what that brings.
Also, here’s the Liz Lemon Guide to Life and Love. It’s perfect!
This is a new show on NBC staring Matthew Perry, also known as Chandler from Friends. His new character, Ryan, just lost his wife and has to deal with all his emotional shit by going to a transitional help group which is very, very funny. I laughed a lot and cannot wait for more episodes to come. NBC just gave this show a full season order which is all I can ask for at the moment. It’s much better than Perry’s last year show Mr. Sunshine which, despite it’s great cast, just wasn’t so well rounded and funny.
The New Normal
Is a new show by Ryan Murphy, the dude who created Glee, yes. This gay couple wants to have a child so they look for a surrogate who turns out to come from a family of women who get pregnant as teens. She’s 25, has a 9 year-old daughter and a grandmother who is such a Republican, it’s basically the best thing about the show. Leisha Hailey will do a story arc soon, so I’m sold!
My favourite cul-de-sac-crew will be back in January and it’s gonna be awesome because all they ever do is hang out, have fun and get drunk. Seriously, what is not to like about that? It’ll be interesting to see what the switch from ABC to TBS changed for the show, or if it changed anything. Here’s your 30 second recap of the entire show.
And another adorable clip where they all sing.
Rizzoli & Isles
Those lovely ladies will be back in the beautiful month of November with 5 more episodes to their 3rd season. They’ll probably still not go canon but for that the gods invented fan fiction and subtext recaps on afterellen.com
The newest promo photo is just such a tease, candlelight, them staring at each other…
