FALL TV is the BEST TV!

As some of you already know, I'm kind of a TV junkie, so even though I LOVE the autumn for all its fabulous colors and foods and clothes, I mostly love it for the new shows. I look forward to the old ones coming back, too, but there's just something about a fresh show with all new characters to learn about and a spanking new world to immerse myself in that just makes me sigh with happiness. So herewith, my five favorite new shows of the fall, in no particular order.

EASTWICK


This has everything I love. Strong female characters. Sexy boys. A fully realized quirky small town atmosphere. (I think the thing I miss the most about Gilmore Girls is Stars Hollow--oh, and Logan, but he's on The Good Wife, so it's all good.) And, of course, magic. I know you're all obsessed with vampires these days, but I can't wrap my brain around that fantasy. I mean, it's all about the girl being victimized by the guy. Being the helpless, fainting female who is so entranced she just has to give in. I'll take some strong, in-charge witches any day, thanks. But that said, show #2 is . . .

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES


Because Elena and Bonnie ARE strong. And Stefan is hot and noble. And we have yet another fully realized, quirky, small town atmosphere that's completely different from the one in Eastwick. Plus they're clearly not afraid to go for the shock, or to kill off people we THINK are main characters. Go fearless writers, go! Also, the books are better than the Twilight books. Yeah, I said it!

NCIS: LOS ANGELES


They had me at Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J. I've never watched the original NCIS, but I checked this out for my boys, and found out it's really some good, silly fun wrapped around a bunch of explosions and high-speed chases. Love Pete Cambor (miss Notes From the Underbelly). Love Linda Hunt's Hetty and it's nod to The Incredibles' hero-suit maker. Love everything.

FLASHFORWARD



I thought I wouldn't want to get sucked into a drama that I HAD to watch every week, but who am I kidding? I watch everything every week anyway. And a show like this, that makes my heart stop every five minutes, was going to suck me in no matter how hard I tried to resist. A lot of people don't like shows that mess with their heads. I LOVE THEM. Mess with me some more! I don't even WANT to figure it out. Just string me along, baby, and I'm there all the way! (In TV. Not in life.)

GLEE



I told my mother to watch it. She asked what it was about. Instead of trying to describe all the layered characters, the incredible music, the awesome dance numbers, the hilarious writing and the perfect casting I just said, "Glee is joy." She's hooked now.

So that's my fall TV wrap up. Oh and if you want to know my five favorite returning shows? They are, in no particular order:

CASTLE
BONES
UGLY BETTY
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER
DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES

I regret to report that I am totally over:

90210
GOSSIP GIRL

That I was majorly disappointed by:

MELROSE PLACE
COUGARTOWN

And that I'm pissed off they didn't give more of a chance to:

THE BEAUTIFUL LIFE

Feel free to comment at will.

My new favorites are The Vampire Diaries and FlashForward.

For returning shows, I slashed Grey's Anatomy and Heroes from the DVR. It was a tough decision, but had to be done.

And I am loving Greek!!!

Have you watched THE GOOD WIFE? That and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES are my two new shows. My fave on VD is Jeremy -- apparently not in the books, but I think he's the most interesting character.

The Vampire Diaries is just really amazing. I'm so glad I gave it a chance, cos I'm totally hooked. I think tonally it reminds me of Roswell in some ways... just the atmosphere of the show and the colours, if that makes sense.

Glee is just... way too beyond amazing. There are no words. I wish it were on every day, haha.

I can't wait for Ugly Betty to come back on! This Friday, I believe. And HIMYM has been good so far!

KIERANNNNNNNNNN. why would you be over Gossip Girl?! I agree its been rather lame as of late but it will get better. You're lucky you don't watch One Tree Hill, its by far the biggest fall tv disappointment.

My favorite show is probably Secret Life. The Beautiful Life looks really interesting, though.

To the book question: Besides for your books that I've read, one of my favorite books that I read over the summer was called The Body Of Christopher Creed by Carol Plum-Ucci.

It's about a boy that's a reject and then all of a sudden he disappears. He leaves a "suicide note" of every person at that school that he wishes he could be. The story is about one of those guys, and what he does to try to figure out what happened to Christopher Creed.
