Oh my! I do not consider myself a major television viewer. Most current TV programming leaves me begging for a lobotomy or at least serious meds to numb the pain it causes. I do have to say I have some real favorites as far as the new shows go, though. Most of the really good stuff isn't on regular channels, at least my three picks for MUST SEE TV!
First on my MUST SEE LIST:
The Closer - On TNT, a great cop show with a talented ensemble cast headed by Kyra Sedgwick. The writing is clever, the stories are compelling, the characters are real and ring true. The character development is wonderful and makes each of the members of the team interesting in their own right.
Kyra Sedgwick is such a delight as Brenda Lee Johnson, a tough-as-nails CIA trained LAPD interragator with a Georgia peach accent and lady-like manners that disarm the criminals she's trying to catch and the audience as well. Check it out for yourselves. Thank you! Thank you so much!
The second on my MUST SEE LIST--
Burn Notice ~ On USA, this is a really entertaining, hip, cool show with great actors who are fun to watch. They have great chemistry and the shows are shot in an intriguing way that keeps the audience on our toes. When Michael Westen flashes that devilish grin you know things are going to get interesting!
And third on my MUST SEE LIST --
Eureka -- This is SciFi's second season for Eureka, the Smartest Little Town in America. If you haven't caught the ads for this show, they in themselves are clever and funny and so firmly tongue-in-cheek as take-off on Home Shopping shows.
The first show of this season has tied off some loose ends from the last season's "big-bang" ending and opened up some interesting plot options and character development as roles change a bit and the back-stories take on a darker shadowing.
