Excited for the fall season

September 15, 2010 - Pam Rodgers
Next week marks the beginning of the new seasons of all my favorite shows. I am so excited to be invited to return to the lives of some of my favorite television charaacters. My schedule is full as usual but it should make for an exciting year. Let me take you through it day by day.
Monday is still my busiest day. I have two shows that begin at 7 p.m. (I love my TiVo). Chuck on NBC and Dancing with the Stars on ABC. I am very excited for Chuck. It is hard to believe that only a year ago I hadn't seen a single episode. Now it's tied for my favorite show on TV. Last season ended with some changes that we will have to cope with. The Buy More blew up, Chuck quit the CIA and we found out that his mom is involved in the spy world. There marks the beginning of the quest to find mom. The Chuck and Sarah relationship is still intact, which I am excited for. It will be great to see them fully explore the depth of their relationship. Now on to DWTS. Admittedly, I haven't done much exploring into the new cast. I tend to let the "stars" surprise me as the season unfolds. My early favorites would have to be Kurt Warner and Jennifer Grey. I am so happy that its back and I am ready to see some more ballroom dancing. Castle completes the Monday schedule. Last season ended in frustration as they drove Castle and Detective Beckett further apart. The season opener seems to promise an interesting twist as Castle becomes the suspect of a murder. I am excited to see where they take the show in its third season.
Tuesday brings my other top show, NCIS on CBS. Last season showed why it’s the best show on TV. It has action, comedy and intriguing storyline. I'm so excited to pick up where we left off. Gibbs's father looked to be in trouble at the season's end. My initial take on the early spoilers is that Gibbs will have to go to extreme lengths to save his loved ones. I am ready for season 8. NCIS: LA should have an interesting second season. The first season sure set up a good working unit that could prove to be a great series. It's still a take it or leave it for me but I am glad that I have it on my TV list.
Wednesday brings a new show that I will check out. Undercovers is a news CIA show on NBC. It's JJ Abrams new show (that Lost guy). I know him better as the creator of Alias. A show that was on ABC that was on until 2006. It was my favorite at the time and remains one of my favorite shows of all time (I own the seasons if that tells you anything). Anyway, JJ is back with the spy world as he brings us a married spy couple taking down bad guys. Right up my alley considering Chuck, Covert Affairs and Alias.
Thursday brings some tradition and changes. Grey's Anatomy is back in its normal time slot but everyone's favorite nerds are back on a new night, Thursday at 7. I'm not sure why the switch but CBS had moved my favorite sitcom. I am ready to see what kind of year Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, Howard and Raj have in season 4. Jim Parsons deserves his Emmy for playing Sheldon so I'm excited to see what his girlfriend will bring to the series. Grey's Anatomy needs a comeback year. The explosive season finale made up for a fairly insignificant season. I hope that it will get back to the Grey's I know and love.
For now, that completes my television schedule. With White Collar, Leverage, So You Think You Can Dance?, Rookie Blue and Covert Affairs ending their summer seasons, I am ready to delve into a full year of television. My only wish for the season is that Chuck be picked up for a full season. With 13 episodes scheduled, it will be over far too soon for my liking. Let's hope the fans, writers and the network make the right decision and give it a full season.
