Default New Fall '06 TV Season

I watched "Studio 60" last night. I went in skeptical and came out thinking it was pretty damn good. Anyone else see it and have a review?

Saw Studio 60. Liked everything but the Amanda Peet character. It was just way too unrealistic for the head of a television studio to be 'one of the guys'.

I tired Heroes and didn't like it. I'm going to give Jericho three episodes.

I watched Heroes as well and it gripped me. They're going to have to get a little stronger on the human element/storyline to keep it going. Super powers are great and all but if it's all special effects - the show won't last. It was an interesting first episode.

have both 60 episodes-- really fast paced-- reminds me a lot like th ewest wing when it first came on... kind of a show where the re runs will still be good shows so you can pick up many of the things that fly right by the fisrt time.

I like it--- so far.

And PMD--- I love the AP character, lets remember that this is TV not a reality show.

Other than the Office nothing has impressed me yet.

Let's hope South Park can come through once again.

I liked the first episode of Jericho, and of Kidnapped. Both were pretty gripping and have potential. Jericho kind of in the way that "Lost" gripped you, with a "what's really going on here?" deal. Kidnapped could go up or down, real fast. I can't see how they are gonna stretch a long program out of this, even for a seson, but we'll see.

Only caught a little of "Smith". Any thoughts on that one?

As for new sit-coms, The Class has had it's moments. I think that one MIGHT take off. Saw the new Ted Danson show last night, and it was awful. Unwatchable.

You guys are insane or have been married too long. Shows like Lost and 60 are incredibly boring and predictable. West Wing was okay, but incredibly over dramatized. The only decent shows on brocast or regular cable these days are comedies.
