All hail Autumn television!

Why does the US start new programmes in September/October? Is it because the winter blues are here and everyone’s too depressed to go outside? So they stay in watching TV and eat loads of cake. Well, America, I don’t appreciate that all shows are condensed into the autumn/winter months, spread them out a bit! Its not like I go out in summer, I have no social life America! Take that into account when making your schedules…

So anyway, the new season of:

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation –

A decent start, continuity from the last season which is always a good thing. And I know it’s been a few years, but I still miss Grissom. CBS, I will give you one hundred trillion dollars to bring him back! The weird bug guy made the show. But in all seriousness, the characters are good, let’s just hope for some consistently good content over the season.

CSI: New York –

Not an immensely strong season premiere, I hoped for better things from you New York! But, a decent amount of the original characters are still there. Just a pre-warning, you replace Gary and I’ll leave. Forever.

Law and Order: SVU –

Not too sure about the double episode, I didn’t think the content needed to be stretched quite that much. I’m also not entirely certain if I agree with all this conspiracy stuff. The show was good when they got victims, arrested criminals and tried them in court. Why change the recipe??

The Mentalist –

This programme is good because it is infuriating. Does that make sense? I’m not sure if I still like it as much as I did the first couple of seasons, BUT the fact that I still don’t know who Red John is will keep me watching.


Dun dun duuh, the terrorist is dead by the end of the programme?? Well I wasn’t expecting that! But it was pretty cool how it happened. These programmes really do have the clichés in common don’t they? I’m not sure why I continue to watch. I think its out of routine and familiarity at this stage.

Homeland –

I started watching this because my other half saw the advert and said “TCRC, I think you’ll love this” (Yes, my other half calls me by an acronym – because that is true love). So I watched season 1 and I guess I liked it enough to start watching this season too. Not too sure on the first episode, but it could develop nicely.

How I met your mother –

This is trash TV at its very best, and so frustrating. So the first episode starts off with a glimpse of the mother’s ankles – well now, that’s basically porn! Part of me hopes that this season will be the last, just so I can find out who the bloody mother is, while the other half is like, NO, carry on FOREVER!

The Big Bang Theory –

I’m kind of sad that Howard is still in space. It’s cool to watch but I do live in hope that he will return soon. This is by far the best of the returns this autumn, mainly because I can relate to the characters so well, being that I am a HUGE geek, and, obviously, a physicist. Well, I got an A in GCSE physics, so I’m probably qualified enough.

Any other shows you followers (all 7 of you) are watching this autumn?
