September Premier Reviews: Part I

With the turning of the month I wanted to share my thoughts on the fall premiers I’ve seen so far. I’ll share Part II next week.

Glee

As I mentioned here, I wasn’t impressed with the premier of Glee. The subsequent episodes have been better. I’m interested to see which direction they go.

Saturday Night Live

As much as I like host Seth MacFarlane this wasn’t a strong premier. With the loss of some key cast members, this will be an interesting season.

Revolution

The story and setting are interesting. The writing and acting are not interesting or good. I’m still watching, though.

The Office

This was a good premier. Seeing Roy again was interesting, but the continuing story of Pam and Jim knowing everything about each other was cheesy. I don’t like the new customer service guys. In the last season, I just want resolution for the existing characters.

Parks and Recreation

Loved this political-star studded premier.

New Girl

The premier was delightful and cute, just like it should be.

The Mindy Project

The premier didn’t quite hit the right notes. It was funny and interesting, though, so I continued to watch it. By the second episode it seemed to have hit its stride.

See Part II of this post here.

Fall Shows on Fox

Somehow I missed adding Fox shows to my fall lineup. Oops!

I’m only looking forward to three shows: Glee (Thursdays at 8:00), New Girl (Tuesdays at 7:00) and The Mindy Project (Tuesdays at 8:30).

I’ve watched the first two episodes of Glee, and I’m not terribly impressed by the story line and dialogue. I know it’s odd to criticize a show for teenagers, but it’s definitely been better in the past. Now it seems tired and trite. If it doesn’t get better, I’ll remove it from the DVR.

New Girl is so cute and funny. I love Zoe, and I also love Mindy Kaling, so I have high hopes for her.
