i'm sure everyone knows that it is now currently the fall season and therefore = AWESOME tv shows are starting again! shows that i ALWAYS watch like grey's which is out in america already and will be available in a few hours time. HEHEHEE. and supernatural, psych, family guy, private practice, ghost whisperer, ugly betty, bones, criminal minds, blah blah and the list goes on. you catch my drift. AWESOME!
but with new seasons, there are bound to be new shows and currently on my list are the vampire diaries, glee, eastwick, cougar town and flashforward. the first two i was kinda being forced into because susanns shee had be bring it home. haha. and no i have not watched glee yet.
so for my entry today, i'm going to give my two cents worth of opinions on these new shows. haha. sound so professional sia. hahaha.1. VAMPIRE DIARIES
first up, the vampire diaries. i'm not too sure what to say about this show. i mean, sure vampires are always attractive to me but isn't it a little TOO overrated already? everything now just has to do with a vampire! NOTHING about the story line is fresh. vampire boy falls for human girl and vice versa. twilight anyone?
and don't get me wrong, i love twilight! but this is just too much vampire nonsense! at least have a fresh idea! i watched the first episode and kinda watched the second one with sana at her house and i have to admit that even though after the 1st episode ended, i was compelled to watch the second one, BUT! even if i didn't it's fine. there's just no oomph in the story. no wow factor at all and seriously it was actually kinda boring. the lead is not hot either, he's just so broody all the time and honestly, i think his eyebrows were working harder in the show then any other part of his body because he just HAS to look the broody vampire part. so wth?! ha.
BUT! with that being said, i have to admit that they did have an AWESOME soundtrack to their show. like seriously. best ever. AHAHAHA! i know the soundtrack is kinda not the point but still, at least it's a positive comment i have about the show! ALSO! ah see? second good point, i thought the scripting was really clever at the end of episode one. like how the guy and the girl are writing different things on their diaries but they MAGICALLY match each other's thoughts? haha. it's corny yes, but it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside after the show ended and the writer(s) wrote it really cleverly for it to weave perfectly like that. have to give my kudos to the sound editor cause it was really a great mix he/she did at the end. AWESOME. =D2. EASTWICK
i must say i "stumbled" upon this show while looking for my awesome criminal minds. =D haha. but yes, since it is also on the subject of the supernatural (not vampires thank god!) i decided that it was interesting enough for me to give it a shot. the show btw, is about witches and how they don't know who they are until the episode pilots of course. but yes, you get my point.
BTW, MY FAV WITCH SHOW IS STILL CHARMED
. TOTALLY AWESOME PLEASE! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! =D
but yes, getting back to eastwick, it was okay. i wasn't totally sucked into it but it was fairly interesting enough to get me wanting for more. a little more than vampire diaries that's for sure. haha.
and as i was watching it just now, i noticed something...
erm, LIKE WHERE THE HELL IS THIS PERSON BEHIND THE DOOR?! so the story is the guy who supposedly is the devil, walks out of one of the witches house and he closes the door behind him, but do we see him anywhere in the shot? in the little gap between the curtains? NO! like wtf?! all we see is his driver (poor guy) standing by the roadside waiting for him and his freaking silhouette. i have no idea whether this is suppose to be an effect because he is the devil or something? but if it's not, isn't this too huge a boo boo to not notice?! i mean, the audience is going to look at this scene for at least one to two seconds! of course i had the pleasure of pausing and rewinding at my own leisure la. but still! sufficient for them to realise something fishy! so this is really interesting. i can't decide whether it's an error or an effect.. hmm.. what do you think?3. COUGAR TOWN
this is actually the ONLY new series that i am really looking forward to. Cougar Town stars Courtney Cox and is Bill Lawrence is writer/exec producer/director. and this guy is AMAZING. he was writer/exec producer/director for Scrubs
too and Scrubs is DEFINITELY one of my all time favourite TV series. so of course, i had high expectations for this show and its trailer was actually pretty funny!
so when i watched it today, i don't know if it is because i watched the many trailers of this show too many times that it became not as funny as it should be. and i find that they cut their scenes too abruptly. it's like they're trying to rush through the show so everything is just so compressed that it doesn't really flow as much as i would like it to. everything is just too sudden and it's like your looking at this situation now and suddenly BAM! we're moving on to the next problem! there isn't really a continuality you know? like everything is not properly thought out and it frankly is quite disappointing.
i don't know, maybe it's because it's the pilot and it was rushed? i seriously have no idea so i shall wait for episode 2 to come out and judge again.
i do however, really like the name of the show. which i totally forgot to mention is about a 40 something divorcee with a teenage son trying to put herself out in the market again. the show puts a lot of emphasis on age, like dating younger guys/girls. hence COUGAR town? ha. awesome word play.4. GLEE
i have totally no interest in this show. the only reason why it is here is because i have this show unfortunately because sana gave it to me AND people have been RAVING about this show for weeks. like seriously RAVING. like it is freaking awesome. to me, it looks just like high school musical all over again, where people dance and sing and act at the same time and people rave about but is not that awesome at all. ha.
okay, maybe i'm being too harsh, maybe i should watch it first and then criticize it. ha.5. FLASHFORWARD
this looks like a really interesting show because of it's story line and john cho. HAHA! i secretly think he's cute. haha! it has yet to premiere so i'm just waiting now. but basically the storyline is about everyone on the planet blacking out at the same time for 60 secs or something and had this dream about their future, basically seeing their future la. hence flashforward? ha.
but yes, i don't really have high hopes for it though because for one, it KINDA looks like lost, which i have totally lost interest in because it was getting boring. just like how heroes is starting to get boring. but yeah. we'll see.
and there you have it, my analysis on the new fall shows. imma go bathe and sleep now. hurhur.
