There were two shows that surprised me this year. I’ve been watching Eureka since it premiered, along with Warehouse 13. I was getting a little tired of Warehouse 13, but I must say the season finale surprised me. I did NOT see that one coming at all. I LOVE it when a show shocks me. Now I’m wondering if the character is acting with free will or if they’ve been brainwashed. Guess we’ll find out next season. Eureka didn’t shock me per se, but it was definitely an emotional season finale. There were a lot of goodbyes. One I didn’t see coming. I think it’ll change the show’s dynamics.
As for new shows, The Forgotten shows promise and Flash Forward was interesting. The latter had a lot of shades of Lost happening, but I hope as it continues it’ll develop differently. I was looking forward to V, but its future seems to be up in the air if the online reports are true. Cougar Town was interesting. It’s funny. There are a lot of women moments that I can relate to, but I find it vaguely uncomfortable to watch. Not sure why.
Bones will always hold a special place in my heart because I still love the characters. This might be the last season of Supernatural, so I’m watching to close out the show. I don’t like the direction its heading in because I don’t think it’ll end well if they follow through with the battle between Michael and Lucifer (ie Dean and Sam). I’d always hoped that somehow the brothers would win. Don’t see that happening now.
Have you seen any shows that surprised you? Any that disappointed? Do you find any of the new shows interesting?
I’ve finished the fifth round of edits on the UF. I have to read through it one more time, then send it off to critique partners before emailing it to my agent. With any luck it’ll be done by the second week of October, then I can get back to my YA. I have to read through my Special Ops short story one more time, then it’s off to London. YAY!
