TV Fall Season 2009: It doesn’t suck!

Ah, Fall, my favorite time of year. With the cooler weather finally starting to set in, my fancy has turned to thoughts of big ol’ wooly hand knits and television has risen, a phoenix, from the ashes of endless summer reruns. The official Fall season of TV started last week, and you know what? It doesn’t suck this year!

I’m watching Community, the comedy about 13th grade (aka community college). I went to two(!) community colleges, so I find this show particularly funny.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Then there’s Modern Family, probably the funniest show since Friends and Will & Grace, about three families. You’ve got your traditional mom/dad/3 kids family, the older step-dad/much younger mom/1 kid family, and the gay guy couple with an adopted baby. Funny, funny stuff, and the best show I’ve seen on TV since Pushing Daisies’ first year. (Damn you ABC for canceling Pushing Daisies!!!!)

In the drama category, I’ve been very excited about the very excellent Flash Forward, the show that asks how would you live your life if you knew what you’d be doing 6 months from now.

And lastly, another drama, Eastwick. To be honest, I wonder how long they can keep this show going. Remember how Desperate Housewives was really good for about 2 seasons and then it started going downhill? Well, we’ll see how they do with this one.

Even Heroes didn’t suck (for the first time in 2 years)!

What shows on the teevee machine will keep you company while you knit your way into cooler weather?

  1. I also think FlashForward has promise. I’m looking forward to this week. And I thought Eastwick was pretty dreadful but it does have the oh, so enticing Paul Gross…so I’ll probably tune in again.

  2. I don’t know about Eastwick. It looks like kinda stupid for me. And I’m not certain “Modern Family” will be much but cheap laughs at stereotypes…

  3. I’m still a fan of Psych and Monk. Other than that I just watch Food Network or HGTV (I like the new layout! : ))
