Televisions

Everyone loves televisions, even if they don’t. Crazy!

This year there are some new televisions that are pretty good.

Heroes

Follows the stories of a number of people with emerging special powers, their paths cross in seemingly coincidental ways but so far they haven’t realised it. There’s a few scary people too. It’s an interesting series so far, a bit Unbreakable-esque, the good thing is that despite having these powers, the makers of the show aren’t rushing to get them using them (though fear not, it’s not as slow as Clark’s discovery of new powers in Smallville). Compelling times.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip

A long-running comedy show that’s a bit SNL is getting a bit too safe with it’s content and the guy in charge gets angry live on tv and gets fired. Enter sexy new station boss who rehires two ex-members of the team to make it all awesome again, one of these dudes is Matt Perry (aka Chandler) and he’s doing a pretty good job of it. Amusing times.

Shark

Crack defense lawyer develops a conscience after one of the dudes he defends goes on to murder someone. He gets hired by the government people to work for the DA as a prosecutor. It’s good because even though he’s on the other team he still fights dirty. Good times.

  1. Agreed, Heroes is awesome.

  2. I really want Studio 60 to be great, but it just isn’t. It’s impressive, due to the budget, the cast and the quality of the production. But the script simply isn’t funny, it borrows too heavily from the West Wing (only took four episodes for someone to break a glass window in a ‘comedy’ moment) and is about a world that we simply don’t care about (the world of network TV isn’t exactly the same as deciding whether to bomb Kumar…)

  3. Yet it’s on your list of favourites shows on Facebook.

    It’s a world that you don’t care about – don’t automatically assume you speak for everyone, and whilst the drama behind network tv may not be as important as politics, it’s made for a show that I find compelling and entertaining.

    The script isn’t supposed to be funny, I wouldn’t even call the show a comedy. It’s a situational drama with some amusing situations.

  4. Heroes is awesome. Like Lost but with a story that moves forward. Studio 60 is great but Studio 60, the show within the show, is god-awful comedy of the type the main-characters are constantly deriding.
