The Aquabats Super Show starts up sometime in October on The Hub. I'm excited for that one.

I liked New Girl, the comedy starring Zooey Deschanel.  It really all depends on your tolerance for her wackiness, though.


Good night,some gave her a sitcom.  Has she learned to emote yet,I swear the only thing I have ever seen her do is stare wide eyed at a camera and you can't build a sitcom around that.

She's a decent actress.  Don't let the performance in The Happening fool you... no one came out well in that film.

Well I was also thinking of her in Hellboy and Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy,I swear she did not blink once in any of those movies.

She's not in Hellboy.

Yeah she was,she was Hellboy's girlfriend who set everything on fire and never blinked.

I saw an add for a new series on Fox called Teranova and it looks pretty good.

So place your bets,how many episodes do you think we will get before Fox cancels the show?  

If you guess right I will give you a $5 Rifftrax gift card.

So place your bets.

If it last beyond two seasons the contest is off.

Place your bets.

If I recall, Spielberg is behind Terra Nova.  That at least should guarantee a bit of a chance with the network.

Basically a tv show created by the band The Aquabats. Looks like a mix of The Monkees meets Clerks Animated Series meets Power Rangers.  Silly kids show with humor adults can appreciate.

I started a thread on it with some clips I believe.

I need to remember to watch the new Zooey Deschanel show.  She really has the dreamiest eyes.  I hope the show has merit too.

I've been watching 2 new shows (in addition to my normal Fringe and Supernatural)

Unforgettable (with Poppy Montgomery... Tuesdays on some channel.)

Person of Interest (with Ben Linus and Jesus... created by Jonathan Nolan, who is the better of the Nolan brothers)

and one I plan to tune in for, once it starts....

Once Upon A Time (fairy tales in modern day or some shit like that....  by 2 of the main LOST writers.)
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

American Horror Story (October sometime) looks really odd and worth at least checking out for a bit

Terra Nova has now appeared.  I thought it has potential.  A LOT of early comparisons to both Avatar and Jurassic Park (and with a hint of 'LOST'), but still.  The most gratuitous one was
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
  And, honestly, with the way it was framed (in the story), I fully expected Stephen Lang's character to tell the new arrivals that, "everything out there wants to chew you up and shit you out!"   :D

But I suspect the show will last longer than we might have thought (before it aired).  I think it may go at least a couple seasons [and it may die at that point if they f*ck it up like they did with Spielberg's first TV foray: Dark Angel].  It may last as many as five seasons.  Of course, if they don't dig into the mysteries and conflicts they've set up right away, and keep working them each week, it won't last a 1/2 season.  So in the pool, you can put me down for both "13 episodes will be made, but they will only air 10", and for "five years".   ;D  Because it really does depend on if they follow through on what they set up in the first episode, and expand the show to include new stuff as well (because what they set up won't be enough to sustain more than a season or so).
