What I'm Watching On TV

The sixth season of THE AMAZING RACE is finally on CBS' fall schedule. With the current season of SURVIVOR proving to be lackluster so far--would someone please step up and be interesting?--and the season premieres of ALIAS and 24 delayed until January, this is just what the TV doctor ordered.

The best new series I've seen is LOST, the latest from ALIAS creator J.J. Abrams. Since I have a digital video recorder in my cable box, I have returned to watching the above average comedy SCRUBS. I decided to give JOAN OF ARCADIA a shot. I'm surprised to find it to be more nuanced than I expected. The plan is to stick with it a while longer.

Director Robert Altman and writer Garry Trudeau's TANNER ON TANNER four-episode series on the Sundance Channel has left me underwhelmed. The new episodes focus on Alex Tanner (Cynthia Nixon) and her documentary film about her dad. Alex got on my nerves in TANNER '88, and she's more irritating in this.

Oh, MYTHBUSTERS has new episodes on Discovery. If you've never seen this show, you should.

  1. We've been fans of Joan of Arcadia since last year. West Wing premiers tonight and looks to be interesting. Scrubs is also a favorite of mine, but not much else has really caught my attention this year. I did just see the premier of The Biggest Loser, which I wrote a bit about in my blog, and will probably watch at least a couple more episodes to see if it's worth the watching all. Amazingly enough I still don't have a DVR, but my wife is slowly weakening to my pleas! hahahahahah
