"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

Ah the glimmer of new tv!

Glee:

What can I say to express the awesome that is Glee? My favorite new show. It combines all my favorites: muscials, teen rom-com, quirky outsiders, and spot on humor. If you're not watching it, START! [If I miss it, I cry!]

FlashForward:

My second new favorite show. I'm really enjoying it. I love a good sci-fi mystery. Theories and clues are so fun to find. Each episode you learn more and more about everyone's flashforward. So far many of the ones which were revealed have animal connections, more specifically pigeons. The kid Charlie also holds some clues, I think. But definitely check it out if you haven't seen it yet. JOHN CHO is a main character! Come on, you all know you love him! [If I miss it, I cry!]

Community:

Joel freakin Mchale people! Comedy is spot on in this show. It's so funny and they aren't trying to pretend to be an accurate depiction of a community college, so I don't have that problem at all. I can laugh at the ridiculousness of all the situations. Worth a look; just takes an episode to hook you. Always catching it!

Eastwick:

I was really tentative about how good this show was going to be. But after watching the first two episodes, I definitely feel that the show is worth my time. Its a cute supernatural mystery with women empowerment thrown in. It differs from the movie The Witches of Eastwick, but there are still many similarities. The women have curves and are all gorgeous. Just a nice show to get lost in, much like a good romance novel. [Always catching it!]

Couger Town:

Hilarious!! Courtney Cox is amazing, and this is a really smart take on a "taboo" topic. I love every character in the show. None feel unneeded or too over the top. It just keeps coming with the humor and I just adore it. Great show to watch with your girlfriends! [Always catching it!]

The Vampire Diaries:

I love L.J. Smith's books which this show is based on. So I was very excited to watch it. I have to say I'm not overwhelmed. I think the biggest reason is the cliche that this show is falling into, which seems to be rampant with shows from the CW. These books are full of powerful women and love which traverses centuries. I'm not convinced yet. I will say that Ian Somerhalder's portrayal of Damon is spot on. I'm going to give it until next week to really capture my interest, but if it hasn't picked up I'm dropping it. [Catch it when I can.]

Modern Family:

This show is not as funny as the previews are making it out to be. The relationships between the families are a little over the top. Also why does every teenage girl have to be some whiny prissy, "omg my parents are so embarrassing and noone understands me" emo brat? My friends and I had our days but it was never a constant thing. I seriously want to slap this character's face. Also, it irks me even more because the actor who is in the role played Maddie Healy on Lipstick Jungle, another annoying brat of a girl. Sorry Sarah Hyland, but your acting is crap and too over the top for me to enjoy it. [Dropped from my line-up.]

The Forgotten:

While the premise sounds awesome, the execution needs work. I could just as well see this on Law and Order, Bones, NCIS; you name the cop show I'll give you an example of a Jane/John Doe they've identified. [Dropped from the line-up.]

NCIS: Los Angeles:
Didn't need to happen period. [Not even watched.]

There's some shows I'm waiting to start, like V. And of course I'm watching my old favorites: Grey's Anatomy, Supernatural, Bones, NCIS (the ORIGINAL) Law and Order: SVU, Private Practice, Fringe, The Big Bang Theory, 30 Rock and every single Bravo show (Flipping Out, The Rachel Zoe Project, The Real Housewives, Top Chef, etc). Television is one of my few indulgences and I do enjoy it so much.

So what are your favorites and not-so-favorites this season? Let me know!
