Let's just admit it...this wasn't the season for great new shows! Between the writer's strike and just crappy shows I had very few to pick from. I think the choices I made this time are great so if you haven't checked them out yet...get on the ball!!!
I have loved Christina Applegate since Married...With Children. I wasn't expecting to like this one but I gave it a chance for her. I looooooved it! It's only half an hour and just about the cutest show I've seen in a while! It's perfect for when you want to watch something light and don't feel like committing to an entire hour of Ugly Betty.
You have seen this show about a million times over the years. The basic set up is that there is this dorky (yet somehow hot) nerd who gets thrown into this Alias-like spy world. The great thing about Chuck is that it knows you have seen this before and it sort of embraces it. Chuck doesn't try to be innovative...instead, it focuses on being the best version of the story it can possibly be. It's fun and touching and has a great cast that commits 100%. I like it a lot!
If you liked Dead Like Me then you will like Pushing Daisies. If you liked french film Amelie then you will like Pushing Daisies. If you liked listening to any of the Harry Potter books on tape you will like Pushing Daisies (Jim Dale narrarates every episode). Pushing Daisies is a quirky little show that deals with death in a very funny way. My only worry about the show is that it depends on it's quirkiness too much. Sometimes we need a little substance and a little less quirky. Check out scene stealer Kristen Chenoweth...she's always annoyed me, but I have to admit her performance in this show really made me reevaluate her annoyance factor!
Make Me a Super Model
I thought I would hate this show because I loved ANTM so much. I was wrong (again)! The great thing about this show is that they have male models too...and I honestly think they are better than most of the women! This is a very fun show and a lot less gimmicky than ANTM. The trash factor is lower and the quality is higher. What's not to love? BTW Perry or Holly are my picks to win!
Ok! I admit I thought I wasn't going to add this to the list but when I reviewed what I was watching, this was one of the most watched! It's an effing train wreak!!! I really enjoy watching as each one of the celebrities slowly realized that this isn't just another reality show. When they realize that they actually have to stop being junkies the shit hits the fan!!! I feel bad when I watch sometimes...like maybe this show went a little too real for reality tv...but on the same note it's fascinating to watch spoiled rotten celebs be real people. I say give it a chance...but be prepared to be disgusted.
LOST Season 4 So after what? I think it's been about nine months! We finally get a new episode ofLOST. YAY!!!! The season 4 premiere (named the beginning of the end) is tonight at time. There is a 9:00 eastern catch up episode at 8:00 so check that out if you need to! Also, if you haven't seen the final "missing pieces" mobisode youCHECK IT OUT NOW! It will blow your effing mind!

I swear it makes you question what you think you know even more!!! In a good way!
Tragically LOST will only be on for 8 episodes due to the writer's strike. I hope they end it soon! If they do we may get more...but at this point it is highly unlikely.
Anyway...here's to having 8 awesome episodes regardless!!!!!
