Tonight brings really the first day of the fall TV season! Check out the best and the not so good on tonight:
90210 – 8/7c on The CW The big talk of the CW lat season was how they remade 90210 and will it work? Did it, not in my opinion and that is shown by the low ratings and my opinions of the second episode airing next week. That episode is really bland and almost unwatchable but their are some notable changes that could reflect a positive direction. First and foremost, the focus on the parents which for me are more interesting than the kids. Second, Liam is so better than Ethan and glad to see him good. Third, the addition of Trevor Donavan as new surfer hottie Teddy is the wrong move, he acts like he is in this thirties and that is because he is. Overall, I am not excitied but do not give up all hope.
Melrose Place – 9/8c on The CW See my review of the first two episodes here, but just to remind you that you have to check out the Melrose Place premiere tonight. The first new broadcast premiere of the fall is so worth watching. What MP does good is what its lead in does not, it has good acting and good stories that are adult and interesting. The plot weaves in the original shows characters like Sydney and Michael like they are brand new and I only hope that for Jane (Josie Bissett). Katie Cassidy is the must watch in the premiere as well as the even better second episode airing next week. Check it out!
Big Brother – 9/8c on CBS The end is near. Tonight, a live eviction with Julie on a special night as the beginning of the last three part HOH. This season has been more watchable than the last couple but is by far not up to par with the greats. Go Michelle (even though it is such a long shot)!
Sons of Anarchy – 10/9c on FX I have heard only praise about the second year FX drama. The cast is well put together, the visual is different and intriguing, and the story is compelling. I have yet to get around to check out the show beyond the not so great pilot I saw last year. But it is rare to find such great Cable fare on a otherwise baron landscape on Tuesdays this fall.
10 Things I Hate About You – 8/7c on ABC Family Are you still watching, are you returning to check out the season finale tonight? Let me know what you think of the show!
