Monday Mentionables

"Television is an invention that permits you to be entertained in your living room by people you wouldn't have in your home." ~David Frost

Hi there! Hope your week is off to a good start. Did anyone watch the Emmys last night? Let's talk about fall TV, since 'tis the season for new shows and new episodes of favorites. Which ones am I excited to see start up again?

Fringe - love the crazy sci fi concepts and love Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv (John Noble too as the crazy father/doctor).

Life - I think Damian Lewis as the lead character is just terrific, with his quirky personality and intense yet sexy persona. Can't wait to see where they take the love interest with his co-detective Reese, either!

Lost - yes, I'll stick with it for another season. I'm too far in now to quit!

Survivor - the only reality TV show hubby and I watch religiously.

So You Think You Can Dance - I watch this one on my own, but I do love the talent that emerges!

The Mentalist - hubby and I discovered this through reruns over the summer. Love - love - love Simon Baker as the weirdly intuitive police agent who also is easy on the eyes!

Flashforward - this is a new one, by the creators of Lost: the entire world loses consciousness for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, during which everyone flashes forward 6 months to see their fates. Sounds like an interesting concept, and it has good buzz right now.

What about you - what television shows are you looking forward to seeing this fall?

Don't watch any of those shows, though I did see the preview for "Flashforward" and it looks interesting... we'll see. I may wait and watch it in reruns, just in case it's cancelled.

The shows I watch that are premiering? "Bones", "House", "NCIS" and "Criminal Minds". I might watch the new "NCIS" offshoot, "NCIS L.A."... haven't decided (guess I'd better decide soon!).

Happy Monday :-)

Ooh, I forgot about Criminals Minds -- I watch it occasionally, not all the time -- sometimes it really freaks me out! But I do love the characters...

I like lost. I am in love with the bad boy!
House is good.
Survivor, the many CSI shows. We don't have cable, just an antenna, and you know I don't miss it. Or the money it costs!
Have a good evening!!!
