New TV Season- my thoughts thus far....

The trees are starting to drop their leaves; similarly, in a few weeks, the networks will drop half of the new shows they've trundled out! Zing!

Anyway, in the meantime, there are quite a few geek-friendly shows. Here are my thoughts on a few....

Chuck (NBC)- I LOVE this show. Any program that will do an '80's style montage set to the tune of "The Touch" by Stan Bush will have my unconditional affection guaranteed. The season premiere was this past Monday, and it had everything I've come to expect- action, comedy, drama, and LOADS of nerd references. This season also promises a ton of guest stars, including Linda Hamilton, Olivia Munn, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, and Timothy Dalton, to name a few. Chuck's guest stars always make sense, and their presence adds to an episode instead of detracting from it.

The Venture Bros. (Adult Swim)- Whether this is a continuation of the last season or a new season all it's own is irrelevant. It's fantastic, and HANDS DOWN the best animated and best written show on Adult Swim.

The EV3NT- Ugggh. This show is slow-moving. They took an hour to advance perhaps 10 minutes of plot! If you like pointless flashbacks and scenes replayed several times, then this is the show for you!
